TKC CINCO DE MAYO POWER RANKINGS!!! CELEBRATE TOP FIVE KANSAS CITY STRONGEST CHICANOS 2017!!!



A bit of background and a cultural teaching moment from the world's most accurate encyclopedia . . .  

Chicano or Chicana (also spelled Xicano, Xicana) is a chosen identity of some Mexican Americans in the United States.The term Chicano is sometimes used interchangeably with Mexican-American. Both names are chosen identities within the Mexican-American community in the United States.

The term had its heyday in the 70s but still resonates among our KCMO Westside community who NEVER FORGETS the past . . .

Accordingly . . .

CELEBRATE THESE KANSAS CITY MEXICAN-AMERICAN POWER PLAYERS FOR CINCO DE MAYO 2017!!!

By no means is this a comprehensive list but it does provide a good place to start research about the community that remains the most rapidly growing in Kansas City.

Take a look:

Chris Hernandez


The former Kansas City newsman turned City Hall communications dude is probably the most high-profile Mexican-American in this cowtown and maintains a vast array of media contacts behind the scenes - Where most political influence is accomplished.

Mary Sanchez


Like it or not, the favorite token Latina is the primary Kansas City mouthpiece for Democratic National Committee talking points and her support of the party line has earned her one of the last, precious and coveted spots in print media.

Manny Abarca


He's a rising star activist and community leader in and around Kansas City Northeast. A growing list of Democratic Party contacts and connections amid changing demographic trends make his work worth watching in the very near future.

John Fierro


Most people don't realize this but Mr. Fierro is the only Mexican-American elected official in Kansas City proper. A write-in school board vote launched his political hopes built upon decades of work at the Mattie Rhodes Center.

Chico Sierra


Check a really great Pitch profile of this rising star local artist who bridges poetry, painting, music and politics in his work. We've been a fan for quite some time respect this guy's growing influence.

And so . . .

TKC Insider Baseball: Notice that these power players skew toward Kansas City Northeast that's now becoming the epicenter of local Latino community as gentrification claims the homes of most longtime Westside Latino residents.

Still, at the conclusion of Cinco De Mayo we notice the Boulevard is still crowded with lowriders and hipsters at this late hour . . . So there's still a bit of decent people watching to be hand among the First Friday stragglers and late night party people and hotties who may or may not be as good looking as Jessica Burciaga -- who is living proof that immigration over the long term isn't such a bad proposition. 



As always, this list has been compiled according to scientific TKC polling and market research data and it's a weekly comprehensive guide to local powerful people.

Somewhat agree about the gentrification but only because most of the new homes and apartments being built are so CHEAP. Crackjack box design should not be the new downtown trend.

Greedo said...

Mexican-Americans might be the most numerous but look to Asian and Indian immigrants who have far more money and growing influence in Kansas City politics. That's the real future of immigration, TKC.

More Jessica, less politics.

^^^ i'm guessing you probably "give a shit" because you're here so late at night. Sorry so lonely. Don't feel bad. It happens to all of us. Social media often makes it worse.

There are way more mexican-americans just working a job and doing their best to make a living for their families. How about highlighting them once in a while?

Good Golly Miss Molly!

That list doesn't bode well for KC's Mexican-American/Latino/Hispanic/Chicano demographic.

Chris Hernandez? WTF? Fake news to direct propaganda sellout for Sylvester James and Company. So much for Latino machismo.

Mary Sanchez? WTF? The only reason she's a syndicated newspaper columnist is because of her gender and heritage. She even agreed to be sold as "the voice of the Latina"! Completely adheres to the dictates of her propaganda handlers at the Democratic National Committee.

Manny Abarca? WTF? Looks like a transgendered, and works for Congressman Carwash....2 strikes.

John Fierro? Long-time representative for the West-side, but likely will never be allowed to join KC's mainstream power players. Hindered by discrimination against the short and bald.

Chico Sierra? Not familiar with him or his work, which means most of KC metro doesn't know him either. Will give him the benefit of the doubt because we appreciate artists.

Jessica Burciaga? If only she lived in KC, I'd slather Mayo over her beautiful body and lick my Cinco favorite spots.

Mary Sanchez should go live with Byron, maybe between the two of them they could figure how to take each other out of speaking stupid crap in public.

Latino kids today don't care about la cultura chicanismo, they want the hottest mumble ghetto rapper than Los lobos

Mary would fuck Byron with a strap on. He would really like that.

Mary and Byron together? They'd go in the Guiness Book of World Records for "couple with most STDs", replacing current record holders Bill Clinton and Madonna.

John is doing good for the community.

There are a couple of other good people on this list. I wish we could seem more diversity in the mainstream local news. It's a shame that there just isn't a place where the cultures can get together and talk about issues rather than arguing.
