TODAY'S TKC QUESTION: HAS KANSAS CITY RACIAL HATERATION KILLED GOOD TIMES @ THE POWER AND LIGHT DISTRICT?!?!



By and large most Kansas City residents seem to think that the Downtown Power and Light District is lame.

That's not just TKC talking trash. Ask around, most locals loathe the fake corporate feel of the place and the adult fun factory vibe. It's kinda like a bar buffet for people who peaked as a Senior in high school.

Again, this isn't just TKC opinion, WE'VE BACKED UP OUR SENTIMENTS WITH SCIENTIFIC MARKET RESEARCH DATA . . . Exhibit CRM 114: Here's a sign of savvy Westport bar sleaze exploiting Kansas City public sentiment against the P&L District . . .



This week. The drama that defines Dowtown good times is racial yet again.

Here's a legal battle betwixt two sides that NOBODY likes . . .

NBC Action News talks to the guy who claims he was paid to start fights with minorities in order to justify racially biased crowd control: So-called P&L 'rabbit' shares his story

Fox4KC overview: Power & Light District owners file racketeering suit against attorney suing them for wrongful termination

KCTV5 Perspective . . . Cordish Co. is suing a law firm that alleged the company started fights to eject blacks out of the Kansas City Power and Light entertainment district. Cordish is suing the law firm for racketeering, defamation and witness tampering.

Funny. We remember not so long ago that P&L District had their defenders who claimed the place would be a huge success and usher in a grand new era of prosperity in Kansas City. Sound familiar?

Clearly that didn't happen and now the pricey Downtown party place is RESPONSIBLE FOR MORE THAN $15 MILLION DRAINED OUT OF THE CITY HALL BUDGET EVERY YEAR along with even more upcoming tax breaks for their big condo project.

Cordish has spent all of their goodwill in Kansas City as this town parties its way toward bankruptcy.

Meanwhile . . . Ongoing racial drama reminds residents that avoiding racial animosity is a lot more fun than dealing with all of the tourists, suburbanites and scammers who inhabit the Live Block.

You forgot to mention that their Irish bar is horrible.

Cordish will win, the city is not about to let them lose. The courts will rule for Cordish no matter the facts or the law.

I never go there but I would do everything to keep black people out too. They ruin everything they touch.

Racism didn't kill it. Allowing people to dress like thugs killed it. White, the ones who tip and spend money will stay away because blacks can't be trusted. They are not civilized

The P&L has been fucked up from the word go. That is why I don't go there.

A shit hole. Nuff said.

And let's not forget that the guy that was running it is now running the Convention and Visitors Assn.

Too many niggers, tearing up stuff and robbing what they can't tear up. Yes, niggers have ruined this too..

The P&L was stillborn.

Weird, I guess because I don't want to be shot, stabbed, assaulted, mugged, or shoot someone attempting all of the above makes me racist.

NAACP Shuck and Jive Committee said...


We will be changing the P&L District's name as soon as the lawsuit is won and we own Cordish.

The new name will be:

"EBT Blacktopia Unchained"

This will be a publically-funded venture with nearly three percent of all aforementioned public funds going into the district, with a modest ninety-seven percent used for "administrative" purposes.

We will expect at least $75 Million annually - anything less would be Racist:

$31 Million supplied by Kansas City
$23 Million supplied by the State of Missouri
$11 Million supplied by Obama
$10 Million supplied by a special KC Metro (multi-county) tax on all white people



It will take another decade or so, but we'll have Kansas City lookin' just like Detroit.

You are much more likely to be murdered raped or robbed by a member of your own race, not some imaginary boogeyman at the power and light...which has very low crime rates by the way.

Facts suck...when you're a suburban fearbot

P & L is a bar district, nothing more. Every city, even smaller ones, have them. Big deal. The same KC urbanite wannabes that get a stiffy about the toy train think that P & L is some ultra hip urban scene. That alone shows how out of touch they are. The sooner people realize that KC is not a Chicago, NYC, etc., the better off everything will be. For better or worse, KC is small, Midwestern city with deep agricultural roots. That’s nothing to be ashamed of, so quit trying to make the place something it’s not.

That's interesting you say that 9:11...I was saying just the other day that KC should embrace the "Cow town" image and market itself as such, i.e. really promote the American Royal to the point where it's the largest rodeo in the entire country, have even larger BBQ festivals, have fishing tournaments, turn Kemper Arena and the bottoms back into a major stock yard, build more grain elevators, build an ethanol plant, etc. etc. etc. Country hicks from all over the 4 state area (NE, IA, KS, MO) will come here in droves.

P'Light District WISHES it was a bar district. Its only a kind of theme park for tourists and the aimless average folk who don't know where else to go.
I miss old Downtown.

Anonymous said...

Well, 9:26, I don't see that happening because a) none of what you mention is "cool and hip," and b) agricultural roots are often lumped in with southern/rural (aka anti-negro) culture, and we all know that would never fly in KC.
Granted, many sodbusters could buy and sell the loft-dwelling hipsters a dozen times over, but since they drive trucks and don't wear skinny jeans, they're to be scoffed at.

Yet Stl and their Ball Park Village(cordish development downtown) don't have these problems. I wonder why? Racist kc inbreeds ruin everything in this shithole town.

Anonymous said...

Every city has entertainment districts, KC has several but since they didn't do the downtown real estate interests any good the city tried to create an artificial one. I am too old for bars but I can't imagine ever going to the P&L District.

If KC ever delivered on it's promise of an anchor team at Sprint -- the whole problem is solved!

I'm in St Louis a lot on biz-- when the Blues hockey team play -- 20,000 fans show up at the adjacent "Union STation" bar & restaurant area -- meals before the game--head to adjacent arena for game - and return. drinks afterwards.

TONS of $$!!

this could be P&L & Sprint.

But.. Sly sez "not interested"..in team for Sprint..

9:26-I've lived in a lot of places including New York, LA, and San Jose. I settled on Kansas City because it has SOME of what these cities have (Westport is a little like the Village and downtown Mountain View), but it is affordable (especially compared to San Jose) and traffic here is a breeze (again especially compared to San Jose). We really should concentrate on making what we offer better, and having taxpayer-subsidized but high-priced downtown rents and condo prices is not something I can see being an attraction when the same money can get you a large house or apartment south of 31st Street.

Maybe someone should come up with a slogan like "Keep KC Affordable."

Anonymous said...

I have never gone there ...I am not a racist but a realist.

The place is full of undesirables to untouchables.

Stay away from P&l District, Plaza, Westport and 39th and Benton. All are the same and all are not in your best interests.

Get wise or get violated by inner city denizens.

shut your ass. P&L rocks!

Nobody is trying to make kc "like Chicago or NYC" they are trying to keep it from becoming like OKC or Des Moines.

Kc will always be affordable, places like p and l will always be phony and douchey, but kc is big enough to provide more than one lifestyle. Everything doesn't have to be Overland Park. You little-dick manchildren get so threatened by EVERYTHING.

This city (and indeed the whole country) has invested heavily in the suburbs and more or less ingnored urban cores for a half century. It didn't work out too well. Now an increasing segment of the population wants to live in city cores. It's just a fact. Obviously it really disturbs some if you but you probably need to grow up and get over it. When you move out of yor parents Lenexa tract house you never know what you might find out you will like.

OKC is already surpassing KC, it's only a matter of time before these smaller Midwestern cities become more desirable because they have less crime and are better managed. Meanwhile KC will still be trying to become NY as it becomes Detroit.

Hahaha...1:27 has never been to Oklahoma City or Detroit. Try again, suburban troll...

Anonymous said...

I have been to OKC, its downtown is better and not nearly as fake as KC. As to Detroit why would anyone go to a bankrupt city. Something the KC convention people will soon need to answer.

Anonymous said...

I grew up there, and it's not bad. Its downtown survived decades of "urban renewal" that would have given Jane Jacobs a heart attack. And 12:50, no one is objecting to people moving downtown. What we object to is being expected to subsidize those moves. I applaud the artists who, on their own, remade the Crossroads. Yes, the 'burbs were subsidized when they were built, but how many apartments and developments in the 'burbs are still tax abated? And guess what--downtown was also subsidized when it was built. It's there. If people want to move there, I'm all for it. Just don't expect taxpayers to rebuild something that's already there and to put in a mode of transit that was discredited a half century ago and the last tracks taken up in Waldo this century.

LOL @ downtown OKC is better than downtown KC and 4xLOL @ "its not fake"...it has a fake fucking RIVER that the city built.

Wonder if they subsidized any of it???

Probably not, only CK (harharhar, get it?) does that. No where esle has to, that why there's no subsidies in places "everybody wants to live" like Overland Park...

Fucking morons.

Anonymous said...

Yep. OKC has a fake river. Dumb idea. Does that mean we have to have a bunch of fake stuff here, too?

(In point of fact, there was a riverbed there, but it dried up about 100 years ago--about 40 years before we did away with streetcars.)

Race-realist organizations, including American Renaissance, that host regular conferences that are a great way to network with like-minded people, academics, authors, and journalists.
