Kansas City Leaders Solve Legacy Of Discrimination Against Young, Black Males Over Brunch!!!



This morning Kansas City community organizations gathered as part of President Barack Obama's "My Brother's Keeper Initiative" - A program aimed at encouraging and providing opportunities for minority youth.

The recent rioting and clashes with police in Ferguson, Missouri offered the backdrop.

KSHB: Local leaders meet to discuss ways to help young black men succeed

Fox4: Hundreds gather to discuss how urban core teens can reach full potential

Deets:

"Leaders from the Kansas City community met at the Kauffman Foundation to brainstorm ways to help young black men succeed. They also vowed to change the way people perceive black men in Kansas City and around the country.

"The leaders, including Aim4Peace Members, El Centro members, Turn the Page KC leaders, Kansas City No Violence Alliance members, Kansas City Freedom Schools Initiative leaders and Connections to Success members, want to give young black men educational and employment opportunities and ways to break the cycle of poverty."

Here's the quote from Mayor James:



"This is an opportunity that we have to actually have a conversation about race that we are always reluctant to have. It often gets swept under the rug. It's something we must address at some point. Now is that point."

Fact is, we've been having that discussion all week on TKC and what we notice from every other politico and civic institution is that they don't let people respond or offer any kind of criticism of local pleasantries.

You decide . . .

Fucking niggers DO succeed. The succeed at robbing, raping, stealing, stinking, etc. No, niggers are way beyond help. They lack the mental capacity to do anything for themselves so, fuck em!

Jackson County Prosecutor's Office gets justice for victims and families

Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker and her staff have brought justice to hundreds of victims and families in Kansas City, and I greatly value their partnership.

The Prosecutor’s office works with our detectives and officers on a daily basis to hold accountable those who commit crimes, especially violent crimes. Jackson County sends more killers to prison than any other county in Missouri. From 2009-2013, nearly 200 defendants went to prison for manslaughter and murder. That is far more than even St. Louis.

And when someone goes to prison for a violent crime in Jackson County, the state’s own sentencing report data shows they go for a longer time than violent offenders in rural and suburban counties.

In addition to ensuring that those who commit crimes receive the appropriate punishments, the Jackson County Prosecutor’s office also is partnering with the community and our department to prevent violent crime before it happens. They have been a key component of the Kansas City No Violence Alliance (KC NoVA). This focused-deterrence program targets those at the epicenters of criminal networks for aggressive police enforcement and prosecution. Meanwhile, it offers services and resources to those on the fringes of criminal networks who want to seek out a new path away from a life of crime. It’s showing promising results: homicides in Kansas City are down by a third from year-to-date totals in the previous five years.

As I’ve said many times, the criminal justice system needs the support of the community to make our community safe. More violent offenders end up in prison when we work together.

I have confidence in Jean Peters Baker and her staff to take on the toughest cases and see that justice is served in our community.

Chief Darryl Stepinfetchit and the spin of the day!

OMG, he must think everyone is a stupid as he is.

This is closer to the truth:

And when someone {finally} goes to prison for a violent crime {after multiple probations/years/crimes} in Jackson County, the state’s own sentencing report data shows they go for a longer time than violent offenders in rural and suburban counties.

Jackson County is feeling the heat from THIS blog. The criticism of injustice in Jackson County has Jean Peters Baker allies from the city state and federal level coming to her defense.
The reality is Jackson County is soft on crime due to lazy cops, underpaid and lazy prosecutors and soft judges. A recipe for disaster. Our riots are coming.

The recipe for success is the same for all people, irrespective of gender, race, national origin, etc.: education and hard work.

For some reason, some groups just cannot grasp this concept and continue to blame everyone else for their shortcomings.

I want the niggers heads that spray painted the QuikTrip walls then burned it down. I want those asshole in cuffs. If the cop is wrong then fuck it charge him but as well charge all those niggers stealing and tearing shit up.

Change how the community views black males? Here is an idea stop acting like animals and peoples views of you will change. I am a kcmo public school grad and had the same opportunities that the blacks in my class had. Some are in jail, some not, but the opportunities are there.
I just read a note from a black former nfl player that is changing over to the GOP because the dems have crippled the black community with welfare and making it profitable to not have a father in the house. Welfare takes the want to away from these people.

Quit being victims.

More welfare reform is needed. 3:35 is right-on. It's like feeding birds - they will eat and eat and eat and eat - and then they don't look for a natural sustainable food source. When you take away the bird food you've been giving them, it is very hard for them to find other food. Find ways to wean folks off of welfare and require people to WORK in government-sponsored projects before they get the government check. Don't enable welfare recipients, and don't reward them for having more and more children.

Sterilize all black adults. Take all black children away from their parents and put them in the homes of white people in the suburbs. The academic and achievement problems would be solved in a generation.

Oh please. Look in the mirror.

Be responsible parents and take care of your children.

Demonstrate behavior that is of value by being loving and accountable rather than looking outside the home for someone to "take care" of your needs.

Shows how pathetically bad the area's news media are. You gotta look all the way to sfgate.com (a San Francisco newspaper's site) to see decent photo coverage. All sfgate.com did was actually publish the dozens of pictures that the AP made available to all the daily newspapers out here. Our newspapers are, without exception, total pieces of shit, more useful for lining parakeet cages and scooping up puppy poop. (The TV stations, as is always the case, are worse than the newspapers.)

You asked if this is a racist website.

Jackson County - nay, anyone connected with politics here - see this blog for what it is.

A racist sexist joke.

But yes our riots are coming and you'll have a chance to air out some ferals. Enjoy.

4:07 Please point out what is being said that is untrue. This is a perfect opportunity. As for this "conference" what a load of horseshit. Just a meeting of the usual grifters trying to figure out how they can guilt the white population into giving them even more money to add to the BILLIONS that has been absolutely wasted on them. You know what? In 500 years there will be some worthless "conference" just like this where they ask the same things about the black community because they simply are unable to improve their lot in life. Not on their own they aren't. The answer is out there and readily available. Generations of every other race have followed the path and proven it can be done. Hold a conference? What a pathetic joke. Here, I'll give you the answers in a few short sentences that everybody else figured out a few hundred years ago. First, graduate high school and then college. Being black almost guarantees you can go to college for free if you look in the right places. Second, don't have kids you are too young for and have no intention of taking care of. Raise your kids right so they can teach their kids properly. It's not that fucking difficult. Third, get a goddamn job and stop relying on welfare. It might not be the best job in the world or make you rich but I don't have the best job in the world either. It does however pay the bills and keeps me out of prison. Fourth, speaking of prison, stay the fuck out or prison. Prison is not supposed to be the family business. When you emulate the prison culture it just shows how fucking stupid you really are. Ever notice nobody else emulates the prison culture? Fifth, mind your own damn business. If you want something, earn the money to buy it, not steal it. Don't shoot people or commit acts of violence. The amount of crime 12% of our population commits in beyond astounding. Finally, ask yourselves why you are hated the world-over? Especially, and most importantly, among yourselves. If you hate each other how is everybody else supposed to get along with you? Why is it an Asian comes to this country and having literally never met a black person until they arrived here, can't stand your race soon after getting here? Why is it you only hear about rivalries between blacks and Hispanics, Asians, or whites? Notice you never hear about problems between other races? We've been to war with some of these countries and are on good terms with them now. Why can an Asian or Hispanic person come to this country and start a successful business within two generations but after more than 200 years you are actually worse off than before the civil rights movement? There are black people in South Africa who want apartheid restored. Can you believe that? Johannesburg is the most violent city on the planet. Why? Black people. Again 4:07 instead of just screaming "racism" at every turn, point out what is being said is untrue. I bet you don't. Hell, Ferguson has had three murders since the cop incident. Heard about them? Of course not. The grifters like Al Sharpton can't extort any money out of those murders because they are black-on-black. The fact you still look up to Sharpton says all you need to know. Somebody who dreams up putting dog shit on a girl and throwing her into a dumpster while blaming it on cops gets summarily proven to be bullshit yet he's still a leader in the black community. Pathetic. Tonight when there is at least one murder a black person is responsible for in KC be sure to post your mea culpa here. I won't hold my breath.

How many trillions of dollars have been allocated to help people succeed? When in fact, the funds in up in personal bank accounts and used luxury travel and personal expenses.

Instead of being called out as thieves and liars, they're given more money and media time.

Foolish times we're living in.

I hope these "leaders" stay home or in church or whatever rock they crawl back under. Their constituents are more than welcome! The People must unite and let these idiots know we are fed up with the status quo. I am not talking violence. I am saying there are other ways. We've already proven we won't be co-opted.

Nah, the Bear did wave thru the fence at some Negro teens walking down Ward Parkway one day. Mother fuckers ask for $100.00 or they said they would come back and burn the bear den down.

Fuck a whole bunch of outreach programs for minority teens. Nothing but a collection of worthless ass GRIFTERS wanting to line their pockets with taxpayer money.

The best way to be "My Brother's Keeper" is to put all the brothers on a bus when they're about 5 and head straight for Leavenworth. Upon arrival, neuter them and keep them doing house work until they're old enough to pick up trash along the highways. It keeps them and their TNB off the streets as well as prevents more brothers from being created.
