MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY 18TH AND VINE FORGOTTEN PROSPERITY CLIP!!!



This morning we're blessed to offer a look at the best glimpse of Kansas City seen online in quite some time.

To wit . . .

FORGOTTEN PROSPERITY IS A MUST SEE FOR ANY KANSAS CITY RESIDENT INTERESTED IN THE HISTORY OF OUR URBAN CORE!!!

We could go on and on about how much we like this clip but it's better to let this EPIC bit of Kansas City short cinema speak for itself:



Movie description from Director Drew E. Burbridge:

"Forgotten Prosperity is a short film dedicated to the history and future of Kansas City's famed 18th & Vine District, starring acclaimed jazz saxophonist Christopher Burnett, narrated from recordings of the late legend Count Basie, featuring music from Mr. Burnett and Grammy-nominated Bobby Watson."

Really, this is one of the finest movies we've seen in a long time. This clip does more than simply document Kansas City history, it offers a glimpse at the potential our city still holds.

Fat, old white dude and some nigger, strolling through 18th and Vine. Big fucking deal. If the nigger wasn't with him, that fat white dude wouldn't have made it twenty feet.

There may be a future at 18th and Vine, but it won't make one fucking penny for the city, ever.

I don't see any future for 18th and Vine as long as the niggers are around.

If KC government spent more time and focus on its actual responsiblities like safe neighborhoods, decent streets and sidewalks, managing stormwater, and all the rest, and stopped thinking of itself as a publicly-funded venture capital firm run by a bunch of amateurs who think of their job as giving money away to pay for other people's dreams, we'd all be a lot better off.
18th and Vine has been a commercial disaster from the start and has done little other than to make tens of millions of dollars disappear into thin air.
And it's getter worse, not better.
And the money thrown away on the streetcar will make this all look like chump change.
A city that works.
Just not for you.

Thes guys were talking about the great old days, if we want to return to that we have to stop letting the government run our businesses.

If it was such a great place to begin with the city wouldn't have felt the need to get into it. Fact is the niggers ruined it and because of the niggers it can't be given a second chance. Walk away and let it fall down, clear all the ground and make wheat fields out of it.

Don't you just love how Black people always want to talk about Black History but destroy it on a continuous basis. Either it needs to be shared and preserved or it needs to be destroyed. Blacks don't give a damn about Black history and do everything they can to fantasize and romanticize yesteryear while at the same time voluntarily destroying their history. It's really confusing and I blame severe mental illness; its not the culture its the deeply rooted mental illness that plagues the Black community.
