KANSAS CITY TOP 5 PLACES THAT NEED MORE MLK DAY DIVERSITY!!!



Tonight lets look at how we can improve diversity in Kansas City in order to honor the legacy of MLK on this day in his honor.

Accordingly . . .

CHECK THE WHITEST PLACES IN KANSAS CITY THAT NEED TO BE MORE DIVERSE IN CELEBRATION OF MLK DAY!!!

Let's make this quick and dirty . . .

1. The Kansas City Fire Department Lacks Diversity And Proper Accommodations



Kansas City Fire Stations aren't ADA compliant. That's a fact, it's also illegal. Worse still, more than any other city department the KCFD has resisted a real effort to become more diverse. The KCFD has faced countless lawsuits from female workers for discrimination and inappropriate behavior. If there is room for diversity improvement among CITY DEPARTMENTS it should start with the KCFD.

2. The Crossroads Is Far Too White



It's probably good spirited Portlandia type disparity but there's still room for improvement in this town's most trendy district. Seriously, every First Friday it's like most of the minorities disappear from Downtown. Drag queens being the exception that proves the rule.

3. Kansas City's Advertising Game Is Way Too Vanilla



In both content and hiring, the Kansas City advertising game is woefully behind the times and their lackluster record on diversity probably offers an old school symptom of what's killing their industry . . . Besides the Internets, of course.

4. Mayor Sly's Closest Accolytes Are All Young, Middle-Class White People . . . Why?!?!



Derron Black seemingly scared Mayor Sly across Troost last year and I can't remember the last time he had a big public visit since the encounter. Moreover, Mayor Sly's biggest fans are hipsters or young,white professionals which is sorta strange in such a working class town.. It's time for the Mayor to mix it up and work on his potential fan base in the urban core.

5. TKC Must Find More Hotties Of All Demographics!!!



TKC has an unashamed penchant for blondes but that doesn't mean that I don't want to make Selita Ebanks my future ex-wife.

I do.

And so we want to recommit to finding hotties from around the world and from a more diverse cross-section in order to celebrate the rainbow of booty and cleavage shots out there . . . We can only hope Dr. King would have admired our commitment.

Diversity? I though MLK fought against diversity and for equality without regard for skin color.

Ah the Crossroads... The place white candidates in this city try to show they are diverse without getting too close to Troost or the West Side.

Kudos to TKC for the commitment to diversity in hotties. White gets boring for my tastes. More Latinas! More Ebony beauties! How about some island gals, some of those hot Bollywood chicks or yummy brazilians!

Hey Tony,

When is Emanuel Cleaver going to pay off the judgement on his loan. He's filed for 2 extensions since Sept. Why don't you report on that? WHERE'S THE MONEY?!?!

Jeezus, lookit those ad guys. Clearly they are the big guns and leading lights of the top KC ad agencies.

All of them are white males wearing ties and dark suits. What other place in the U.S. would have a bunch of top ad men looking like that? I mean, since Ozzie & Harriet times?

They're completely ridiculous. You wanna be so freaking "world class" around here? Then get rid of all these ad guys who dress like a bunch of 1950s hicks.

But because you cannot provide a number we are left to assume it is one because I can only think of one.

You and your imaginary TIPSTERS!!! tried to beat this drum five years ago but fails miserably.

Don't know about you, T, but I'll say this.

If my house catches fire, I want the most qualified people out there trying to save my house. I don't want eight highly qualified people and a couple of tokens.

If I have a heart attack, I'd like to be see by the most qualified doctor in the emergency room. I don't care if he (or she) is black, brown, white, yellow, green, purple, or mauve. They're trying to save my life; why should I care?

If I'm a small business trying to expand my customer base, I want people who understand my needs and the market's wants. Don't care about the person's skin color. I do care that they can do the job and do it well.

I have no idea about the race of the person who delivers my paper. I know his name is Michael, that he's had the same route since before I moved here, and that's it. He gets a $25 bonus from me for Christmas every year. He gets the bonus because he delivers the paper on time every day.

To quote Dr. King: "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

I'd like to see Dr. King's dream reach fruition. Can you say the same, Tony? What about you, Alonzo?

Yep, let's hire a black guy who can't pronounce his own name over a white guy who scored a 90 or better on his test. That sounds fair and equal. You are a dumb beaner!

I will assume that this post is a joke, as is the case for so much of your stuff.

You seem to be suggesting that certain places need to show more diversity just on the MLK holiday? As if it's important to publicly act out the charade on one day of the year.

1) If anyone can legally demonstrate a pattern of racial discrimination by the KCFD, then they are free to initiate proceedings.
2) If the Crossroads is "too white" (a moronic description which is itself racist) perhaps it's because the hipster crowd of color congregates elsewhere.
3) KC Ad Agencies "too vanilla"? see items #1-2 above.
4) Mayor Sly discriminates based upon race and age when hiring staff? Did he also abandon all Black females when marrying a white woman? What's worse, Funkhouser's wife telling crude jokes around staff who she trusted, or James implementing a quiet policy of discrimination to favor young white professionals?
5) Most of us definitely appreciate hotties of all colors, but we know where to find those on the internet. Your continued reliance upon bait & switch tactics, actually limits your growth potential by offending 50% of the population. Besides, lots of people believe you're gay and use the hotties as your shield.

Based upon my own observations today, I would say that those who had the day off spent it like any weekend. While a minority of Blacks may feel obligated to attend memorial services on the MLK holiday, all others largely ignore the commemoration as it doesn't hold a special significance for them. And if the MLK holiday is just another routine day for you, it doesn't mean you're disrespectful or racist.

The MLK federal holiday was only signed into law in 1983 by President Reagan and first observed in 1986. The lobbying for this holiday actually began shortly after the death of MLK,Jr. in 1968.

Since Latinos are now America's largest minority group, some would question why they haven't been given a designated holiday.....they're probably too busy working to lobby for it.

8:00 -- true. Because nobody living in Kansas City is stupid enough to believe that "the best will prevail." Here, it's the Best* who prevail.

White shoes are white shoes. Just because Zappo's don't sell em' doesn't mean they can't be white shoes!

I look at it the other way around... if St. MLK today rose from the grave he has been in since 1968, and saw 2013 American Negrodom, his eyes would bulge, his jaw would drop, he would begin babbling "Dear Lord, YT was right! I take everything back! Oh, geez, for the love of God, no no no......" as he dumped bleach all over himself and scrubbed himself raw.

Yes we need more diversity. Whites should hold 70 percent of the government jobs in KC as would be proportionate to the city racial make up. However, we know that diversity only applies as the excuse when white folk are being bent over and fucked

I have no fucking idea as to why anyone would want to hang out in the Crossroads area anyway. It's full of a bunch of faggots, tree huggers and the avant-garde shit heads whose funding for that ideal low budget film that they were shooting has just run out. Fuck that place. let the niggers have it. I'll stick to the Zona Rosa area.

Anonymous said...

9:46 that is not true...you have your African Americans, your Hispanics, and Asians on the Dept, but they have to have (a certain amount) of them to avoid law suits in terms of discrimination.

In addition to fire precedence of being prejudice , after they took over Mast they now have women in the house, (they had bull dikes in the house prior to the Mast take over, but bull dikes take it up the ass, and KCFD FF's love ass more than pussy so it worked out up until then. Now you have ex Mast women sleeping with married KCFD FF's I love Kharma :)

Thanks for saying that Lynne. I as others know the KCFD goes to great lengths to hide their dirty laundry but many of us know it is there.

Wow, Lynne is posting cool, now if only we could get her to do it more often, get chuck and superdave back and this place be rockin once again.

Byron Funkhouser said...

I think that we can assume that this is not a white person claiming 'reverse discrimination'. Of course, anyone filing such a claim is just a non-white person playing the 'race card'. Right Nazi's? Because the non-whites are the 'real' racists. Not the white man, he thinks Jesus looks just like him, & that he can walk on water, too. Its the evil non-whites who are ruining the world. Right Nazi's?

Tony I am so god damn tired of seeing Byron Funkhouser’s shit on these posts all the time. He is ruining your site. He is not from around here and adds nothing to this local blog. His insight is hateful as a rule and does not reflect the views of people or events of Kansas City. He has gotten to the point he only posts to incite and anger people for his own benefit.
Plus it is Byron who is running the good people off.

Mountaineers killed Indians! Byron likes that.

Byron Funkhouser said...

In 1777 the Shawnee killed every white person who was living in what is now West Virginia. You see they correctly sided with the French, & after Washington's defeat at Fort Necessity there was no one to defend the frontier.

Wrong, Idiot.

No, I'm not wrong, not am I an idiot. Its known here, as the year of the bloody 7's.

Are we going to play tag again, tonight, little pussy? Is this how you show that you're smarter, saner, better educated, & just generally superior in every way?

Idiot 1754-1763 7 year French+Indian war

Byron Funkhouser said...

This is West Virginia. I have seen a documentary about this many times. I also read Eckharts' (probably got the name wrong) book. The year was 1777 (the year of the bloody sevens.) I guess someone forgot to tell the Shawnee that the war was over.

Are you going to tell me that the Battle of New Orleans couldn't have taken place because the peace treaty had already been signed?

They didn't kill "every white person" !

They killed every white person. I had the war wrong, though. It was 1777 but the militia was in Pennsylvania & there was no one to defend the homesteaders on the frontier. See Mary Engles, "The Long Walk Home".
