TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! SHOCK!!! KSHB APOLOGIZES FOR 'NATIVE AMERICAN' TAG MISTAKE!!! OR: KANSAS CITY NEWSIES CAN'T DISTINGUISH BETWIXT DOTS VS. FEATHERS!!!



It has been a horrible week for KSHB . . . Kansas City's NBC Action News affiliate had to confront the Jack Harry "gayhawks" controversy just a couple of days ago and NOW . . . They're quickly admitting and apologizing for their inability to distinguish betwixt brown people.

To wit . . .

LAST NIGHT KANSAS CITY KSHB NBC ACTION NEWS QUICKLY APOLOGIZED FOR MISTAKING INDIAN PEOPLE FACING HOME BURGLARIES IN OVERLAND PARK WITH NATIVE AMERICANS!!!



Here's the story: Families say they're targeted for burglaries because of their race

The Facebook apology came just moments after the error . . .

"We'd like to apologize for the error made during a story in our 10 p.m. newscast. We ran an incorrect lower-third graphic as our anchors introduced the story. The person who created the graphic misidentified the nationality of the victims. We again apologize for the error and have taken corrective action so this mistake won't happen again."

Overall the response to the quick apology has been upbeat and accepting and totally overlooks that guy's horrible sweater . . . Luckily, white people committed genocide against most of the Native Americans around these parts a long time ago and the rest are busy with (YOUR BAD JOKE HERE) more pressing matters to take notice.

And yes . . . I know the post title was offensive and don't care . . .

Developing . . .

They have that dot on their head so you can point to it and say, "GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE!!"

I have no idea why people from India would be targeted for crime. But I bet I know who is targeting them: Black males.

True fact: Men rub off that dot on their wife's forehead before they marry to see what kind of convenience store they will get.

You think you are being cute . You arent.

They rub off the dot to see if they get a convenience store or motel.

dont be a racist dick.

Completely moronic... to 'apologize' for such a minor mistake. Anyone who is affronted by it needs to get a life.

So 41 was 'incorrectly politically correct." If we who live here keep rolling over to the pretend insensitivities of people about their heritages, we're all just nuts.

41 was nuts about their chyron operator's, or producer's error. I think they owe us an apology for their apology.

I get why they are being targeted for burglaries. Has anyone seen the price of Camel nuts these days? My Gawd! This could be bigger than copper thefts.

Easy mistake. I could totally see that dude in a big feathered war bonnet.

Speaking of apologies or mistakes, Tony, I notice both of your posts about the upset hubby have been removed from this site.

Whats up with that? Was there a credible legal threat? Is this so-called free speech being compromised?

Hey 9:51, don't you know TKC is the last bastion of free speech? That is, Botello is free to share your info with whoever he chooses, and free to censor any posts he wants to.

How!

Me saddened to see local white-man media continue to speak with forked tongue about all peoples of the brown skin. First it was the team of the pigskin (Chiefs), then the greasy food people of the skate-feet (Sonic), and now within one full moons passing, the people of Keep Slaves Harass Browns (KSHB) are guilty of spraying their skunk oil over the land. As our great warrior Chief says, "Never trust a man who paints his face and reads words for a living."

Though my tribe and nation don't care for the curry dishes prevalent among the peoples of the Southeast Asian plains, they do know the difference between the words "Indian" and "Native American" in your White Man language.

KSHB staff are like crows who eat grain from bison dung, though you try to be careful, eventually you become full of crap.

May your tepee collapse from a heavy snowfall and turn your squaw frigid!

Why on earth would Indians be a target? Most of them have half a dozen IT guys living in a one bedroom, curry-scented apartment together near Sprint with a futon and small tv, nothing more.

Why is it all these home owners are gunless? This ain't exactly Paradise City.

Was the Crista Dubill that got busted with a farm animal down around Miami ? I think they tried to can the story around town.

I watched 41 when Elizabeth Alex was there for years and years. They paired her up with that dipshit Mark Clegg who cannot for the life of him pronounce the word SOLDIER or SHOULDER. He says either one or the other. WHY THEY KEEP THAT STUMBLEBUM STUTTERING ASS on the air is a total mystery. One night there was a chase in south KC about two weeks ago. This piece of idiot kept challenging the helicopter pilot about WHERE IT WAS!!! It was a disgrace. Finally the pilot told him he'd take a wide shot to convince the dioshit. He is the WORST anchor this town has ever had. I mute it when he's on and just wait for sports. He's an overpaid dick.

Dear Tony and other people who have involved themselves on this webpage, I would like to start off with the fact that you have violated your own rules.You say that this blog is the epitome of free speech in this country, so I feel it fit to add my two cents. Nothing in my life has ever screamed hypocrisy as loud as this blog post.In the sidebar of your webpage you create a general guideline saying that, "Be Nice. Please refrain from reading this blog if you don't have a sense of humor...," but it is obvious that pretty much everyone on this webpage that has taken advantage of the mask of anonymity provided by the internet and hasn't followed this rule. Clear racist and malicious comments against Indians AND Native Americans are certainly not humorous and kind. If someone was to stereotype you for your skin color, dressing sense, or traditions and exclaim it to the world under the emblem of free speech, would have a laugh? Let me guess, you'd probably want to shoot that person down with your hunting rifle.

Many of the comments also claim that heritage and cultural traditions are insignificant and that apology for such a 'minor' mistake is simply moronic. As proof of an inherent argument against this so-called opinion, let's refer to American history. Who first came to the Americas? The Pilgrims. These Pilgrims in Plymouth County started the tradition of Thanksgiving in America. I hope it is understood that without the aid of certain Native Americans,(Samoset and Tisquantum), the first Americans would not have been able to survive. Although it is arguable that this celebration of Thanksgiving has become slightly exploited in recent years, it is still a portion of intrinsic American history. If people spoke against this tradition of Thanksgiving, how would you feel? Is Thanksgiving insignificant and lacking in magnitude? Due to this deep set history, would mistaking a Caucasian man for some other race be considered a minor misconception? From this, it is obvious that prejudice and racism is marring the true perception of your own words.

And by the way, I hope you realize that this IS JoCo Crime. There are many Indians who have been granted dual-citizenship in Johnson County, and they are intelligent enough to seek the aid of THEIR police force against something that is happening in their own county.

As for the sweater, I have nothing to present but the fact that people of all races think it's trendy to wear electric green pants with pink polos these days.

Yes, I agree it is sad that NBC Action News can't tell the difference between Indians and Native Americans. This only stands as proof that they are heavily closeted, just like the people on this blog. If you don't know the significance of a 'dot' and 'feathers,' then you have no right to comment on how moronic culture is. Go learn something first.

The reason why America is called a melting pot is because of the amount of diversity here. People of different skin colors,cultures,and religions all come together to work for on certain aspect that YOU gave the term for: the American Dream. Without the curry-eating IT guys, America's technological department would collapse. And, like I said before, Native Americans are the foundation to this country. Don't belittle them or any other person of different ethnicity because they are working for the same things as you.
