KANSAS CITY MINORITY BIZ HOT MESS: LATEST REASON TO VOTE AGAINST DOOMED NEW AIRPORT SINGLE-TERMINAL

Great round-up of W/MBE concerns that should sour even more voters on the idea of a poorly planned new airport. Take a look:

Civil Rights Groups Say 20 Percent Minority Business Participation For New KCI Won't Cut It

A conglomeration of Kansas City civil rights groups and minority business organizations is calling on the city council to reject the selection of Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate to build and finance a new terminal at Kansas City International Airport - unless they double their goals for minority business participation.

What an absolute joke. Talk about extortion. 40% is completely unreasonable. Remember the community center on the West side off of SW Blvd that had the same demands? It was a total disaster and JE Dunn had to go in and do it right. The airport will be a union job and there simply aren't that many union contractors and there sure as hell isn't that many minorities in the unions because construction is hard work after all. The city should tell these grifters to get fucked. This is a massive project,not a weave shop on Prospect. This has to be done right. I'm so fucking sick of our worthless 12% of our population that offers nothing except crime, poverty, and destruction, barking orders to everyone. Same crowd barked the same shit about the Jazz District and look how much they have supported that. Fuck them.

Blacks on construction sites are as rare as brain cells in Progressive skulls.

"The airport will be a union job and there simply aren't that many union contractors and there sure as hell isn't that many minorities in the unions because construction is hard work after all."

They don't show up, they don't work if they do and they sue for discrimination at the first opportunity. They really, really suck.

Mexicans hump their asses, but blacks are lazy, unmotivated and trouble all day every day.

If a w/mbe did a quality job they they would not have to yell, scream and demand some quota be put in place so they can get a job. If and when it should happen, we want a top quality job, not some batch cobble job that was done by somebody bc of their sex or skin color, but bc of their quality reputation.
Stick your quota up your fat butt.

Hell the new East Patrol Police Station was built the same way. It's a total shithole with problems daily. It's not about quality work, its about fairness right? If not, you are deemed a RACIST

I see no problems here. With 13 percent of the population, blacks easily exceed 40 percent of violent crime. So doesn't it make sense to expect 40 percent of airport construction jobs. Whatta you mean apples and oranges? Oh! I see.

All mwbe projects are fucked up, everything they screw up is looked at and passed because of who they are, no hard deadlines or penalties apply to these idiots. By the way most of these mwbe contractors have ties to city council and mayor. I remember when the zoo got built, it looks nothing like what the architects drew up and the taxpayers paid for. They all folded up after they where completed and the zoo started falling apart almost immediately. One year warranty, ya right, there wasn't a company left to call back for warranty work........ complete disaster

Another thing I love about these demands is these people know nothing about construction, especially a massive project like this. Minority companies needed for something this scale mostly don't exist. I think Buck Buchanan's wife still runs a rebar company but guess what? Most of their employees are white. You can't call Leroy's backhoe service for something like this, it has to be Clarkson or Kissick or someone large. You can't rent a crane from Montell, you can't hire Tyrell's Electric. These dumb fucks don't understand anything other than shaking people down.

There are not enough MBE companies in the area to do 40%, I mean that would be around $400M. Plus on SBE's there are annual revenue limits to stay a SBE

NOTE TO GWEN GRANT:

Extortion is not a good look for you dear.

When you bite off more than you can chew, you're apt to choke on it.

Gwen Grant is bought and paid for by Burns & Mac. This is their plan to kill the new terminal , and wait till they have sucked all the sewer money out of KC taxpayers and then come back to rip us off again for a new terminal! Thanks Sly, new B & M CEO!!

Time to end the minority and woman owned frauds. I am for more of both in practical terms, but not like this. They can work in real firms. Will Sly pushback, he couldn't even answer a question on memorials and fountains the other day. Pandering to this kind of bs will just make things worse.

No, you cant build anything. How about we let them open up a shoe shine stand?

Irrelevant because the minority mayor fucked the whole thing up with his greed.

It appears to me that the last of the grifter clan is fading, dwindling and irrelevant. Why the media keeps giving these folks any attention or credence is perplexing. They represent such a minority among minorities its laughable that they were even given the time of day. While I support equality, I provide no support for these hangers-on. These folks look more like they represent AARP rather than any other likely organization. It's time to give it up. Urban League hasn't been a thing since the 80's.

All this complaining is related to the fact that we have a Black Mayor, Black real estate firm and Black council members who supported it. There was no conversation about that. And just why does these six individuals believe they have any influence over how people vote. They don't. These people are out of touch with reality. The demographics are changing quickly all over the City. Hopefully, it won't be long before we can eliminate groups like this and their showboating about what they think is important.

There's NEVER any oversight on minority contracts... Hasn't been for at least the past 10 years I've been paying attention. No matter what the paperwork says, there's nobody watching to make sure the jobs that were promised get delivered. Hasn't happened in a decade and won't happen in the coming days.

So, this group should take it's final bow and fade into oblivion.

No one sees the RAYSHiTZM in this arm twisting scheme? God Damn Boon thugs. It is in their DNA.

Didn't hear a word about the airplanes landing on the graves of slaves that were buried in the airport land. Didn't hear a word about the knocking over and busting of gravestones in the cemetery on north of the airport property. Gwen has no sense of history or probity.
