The Divisive Kansas City History Of Troost

KCUR consideration of a longstanding problem: "For decades, Troost Avenue has symbolized racial separation, income disparity and vast differences in home value as well as frequency of crime. But it's only a street. And at one time, it happened to be quite a prosperous street . . . This discussion explores the specific decisions, both national and local, that laid the groundwork for Troost's transformation into a major metropolitan divide."

There's no need for expensive and time consuming reviews and platitudes about Troost. The decline of this area is directly attributable to the presence of niggers. They have ruined this street, exactly as they have The Paseo, Van Brunt, Cleveland, Agnes, etc, etc.

It's not just Troost. Every city in America has a street like this. And just like everywhere on Earth, where there are black people, there is ruin. It is nobodies fault but their own.

A bit of history no one ever mentions is that Dr. Benoit Troost himself was a slave owner. (see 1850 slave census, free online in a couple of places.) That Troost's namesake street is the white/black demarcation line in Kansas City is ironic, to say the least. When this fact becomes known by the PC Police, you can bet the name of Troost will be changed.

I've seen the hookers on Troost and $20 is too much. In fact, I wouldn't let one of those fat, black, disgusting bitches anywhere near me.

How about every city in the country that has a Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard? In all those cities that is right in the heart of a high crime area.

If Dr. Troost did not like negros, he would not have bought so many, now would he?
