TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!! GROUNDBREAKING RACIAL DISCRIMINATION CASE AGAINST KANSAS CITY FIRE DEPARTMENT STARTS THIS WEEK!!!
Once again the Kansas City Fire Department finds itself taking a lot of heat . . .
A GROUNDBREAKING RACIAL DISCRIMINATION CASE AGAINST THE KCFD STARTS TOMORROW!!!
An African-American dude is bravely taking the Dept. to task.
