Kansas City Northland Fears Influx Of Subsidized Housing And Rising Crime



The topic of poverty and crime reaches across the bridge and into Kansas City's suburban communities that are also coping with rising crime.

In essence, a local community is complaining that the city is working to pack more poor people into a district that's already coping with a demographic shift.

Take a look:

NN: Neighbors oppose Maple Corners housing project

An important perspective . . .

"This area is already saturated with subsidized housing. The school is about 80% free or reduced lunch. Neighborhood has been deemed unsafe for walking to school and has no plans to improve the infrastructure with the project.

"The area south of Vivion road and west of Worlds of Fun already is below the median northland and city income level. The neighborhood has a crime problem and the local grocery store is over a mile away and not walkable . . ."

Meanwhile, the project moves forward and locals are finding their complaints ignored by public officials.

You decide . . .

Apartments and duplexes are the scourge of the suburbs, ask north Johnson County. Build only single family dwellings.

Yeah, lets dumb down EVERYTHING!

Neighborhoods, schools, business', you name it. Until we are all sitting under trees eating bananas with apes, we will be "Racist".

6:13 is right, America does hate white people.

It only counts if the Fed can fuck White People over. No outrage, unless whites are involved somehow.

Consider it one of this summer’s most underreported stories. In what’s described as “one of the largest civil rights indictments in L.A. history,” an old-school Mexican gang—one of the original Mexi gangs that date back to the pre–World War II era—ran a ruthless campaign to keep “niggers” out of its neighborhood. The Big Hazard gang (also known as Hazard Grande) runs the streets in Boyle Heights, a neighborhood in East L.A. As of 2010, Boyle Heights was about 94% Latino, owing in no small part to the fact that Big Hazard had an unwritten rule about not tolerating black residents. In recent years, however, blacks had slowly been making inroads into the community, so Big Hazard decided to put a little fire and brimstone behind its unwritten rule.

Well, fire mainly. The gang embarked on a campaign of hurling Molotov cocktails at the homes of black residents who didn’t get the message that they weren’t welcome.

Hence the federal indictment.

Now, when I say the story has been “underreported,” I don’t mean there’s been a blackout (pardon the term). The story has received obligatory coverage in all the usual fish rags, from the Times of L.A. to the one in New York. But what’s missing is the outrage. Big Hazard’s activities were tolerated (to say the least) by the local Latino population. Was there perhaps some fear of speaking up against the gang? Sure, but still, it’s a local gang, made up of local boys. Where are the calls for the neighborhood to undergo “racial sensitivity training”? Where are the black leaders locking arms and marching through the streets in defiance? Where are the garment-rending op-eds and monologues from leftist journalists, hosts, and pundits?

Has anybody angrily confronted Edward James Olmos (who was born in East L.A.) about how he has a “responsibility” to go down to Boyle Heights and lecture his fellow Mexican Angelenos about the evils of racism? Of course not. In short, as you don’t need me to tell you, there has been no outrage because whites aren’t involved (except as, you know, the lawmen trying to bring justice to the blacks of East L.A., but don’t think for a moment that any black person is going to give whites any kudos for that.

I am glad Mexicans hate blacks because when the civil war breaks out they will be on our side.

Maybe they will move them next to Hillary at Chappaqua, right outside the walls she has around her house. Or maybe next to that scummy greasy Zuckerberg and his walls around his house.

If Hillary wins watch out suburbs and rural America. Where do you think all those Syrian and Muslim African refugees will go? The Hood? Ha...

Nope. Hillary will move them to your area to punish you for working hard and not living East of Troost. So get ready for a 20-year-old Muslim men to harass your 14-year-old daughter in high school. Or Jewish kids getting ganged up on bullied or beaten. Expect more crime and rape in the burbs and in rural America.

At least that's what's going on in Canada right now.

Or is that Idaho.

And just like Idaho, expect the local media to cover it up and pretend it never happened.

Dear Northland Entitlement Complex Whiners:

When you move to a sprawled out area that is not walkable, and never had sidewalks, that isn't densely populated enough to pay for infrastructure, it doesn't make any sense to complain about how you don't have sidewalks and you can't walk to anything.

Sincerely,

Real Kansas City

Subsidized housing is always nicer than what working people can get.

Kearney and Holt's property values are going to go up...when all of KCMO's tax base has finally fled the city who is going to pay for the "essential services?" KCMO is going to be another rust city like Detroit!

Another? It already is.

Guess the NET 10s of thousands of people moving into the city in the last 15 years didn't get the memo from Tony's Kooky Census.

Any proof of that statement 2:33PM???

2:33 KCMO has increased in population less than 40k in 15 years, according to the census Bureau, that is not very much considering the land mass...facts hurt don't they?
