TKC CULTURE WAR FACT CHECK: TOP FIVE WAYS KANSAS CITY STAR WAS COMPLETELY WRONG ABOUT HIP-HOP AND 'UNWELCOME' BLACK MILLENNIALS IN WESTPORT!!!



On Sunday The Kansas City Star showed it's true colors as a tabloid blog in print by running a screed based mostly on their myopic worldview with very little understanding about the community outside their offices.

To wit . . .

CHECK THIS EXCLUSIVE TKC FACT CHECK REVEALING KANSAS CITY STAR MISTAKES IN REPORTING HIP-HOP AND WESTPORT CLUB LIFE DIVERSITY!!!

And before we get started, the worst thing about all of this is that so-called "progressives" working at the newspaper were so quick to classify people by race when we're really talking about musical cultures in Kansas City.

So let's get started . . .

1. The Vast Majority Of Kansas City Hip-Hop Fans Are White


The basic premise of this Kansas City Star story was incorrect inasmuch as it took at legit complaint about music and turned it onto a social justice crusade.

This needs to be noted for the record:

HIP-HOP PARTY SOUNDTRACKS ARE NOT A CIVIL RIGHTS ISSUE!!!

Furthermore, what's laughable is that the Star offers an archaic "race music" conception of hip-hop as "black music" when, in fact, it's a global industry worth billions appealing to people across the world.

Moreover . . . In Kansas City, the 2nd most successful rapper is a white guy who is sponsored by global brand names.

In Asia, Europe and throughout the globe . . . Hip-hop has been commandeered, remixed and adopted as a musical style of young people from a myriad of cultures . . .

Kansas City is mostly comprised of white people, ergo, and given local rap music concert turnout, most hip-hop fans are younger white people.

Visual proof of this truism . . .

Take a look at the crowd gathered to welcome Tech N9ne, Kansas City's foremost hip-hop artist, at the opening of "The Truman" in the Crossroads.



The crowd is NEARLY ALL WHITE and eager to pay heed to the KC hip-hop kingpin.

Speaking of . . .

2. Westport Doesn't Have A Monopoly On Local Music Or Mandate To Offer Hip-Hop


Again, The Crossroads and The East Crossroads are stepping up their musical offerings with places like The Truman. Also, pop-up clubs, private parties and neighborhood venues offer PLENTY of venues for upwardly mobile African-Americans to enjoy any music of their choosing - This happens all the time with very little notice from the MSM or middle-class white people in much the same way that dead-tree media deadbeats (thankfully) stay far away from all the skeevy Chicano bars that hipsters have not yet discovered. But the idea that any party district needs to have its musical offerings dictated by a fading media organization is repugnant. There's also no middle-class African-American Hip-Hop club on the Plaza (Black Cheers???) . . . The logic of the newspaper falls apart given that very few people believe in the power of dead-tree media to influence local culture any longer.

3. Sour Grapes From A Few Struggling Kansas City DJs Is FAKE NEWS


The weakest part of the newspaper story was their sources and quotes. In the photo, that's former Chiefs running back LJ trying to launch his DJ career . . . The no-name musical hopefuls taking their complaints to the Star don't even have the skills of a FAILED part-timer like LJ who was better at dropping the ball than the beat.

4. The Musical Offerings In Westport Are, In Fact, Eclectic And Include Hip-Hop


If there's no hip-hop in Westport . . . Then how do we explain ALL THE HORRIBLE MUSIC POURING OUT OF KELLY'S??? Sure, Sir-Mix-A-Lot might not be cutting edge rap music but the guy still gets tons of play every weekend in Kansas City's worst party district.

Most importantly . . .

5. A Cop SHOT DEAD In Westport Is More Important Than The Newspaper Playing DJ 


There were a great many hip-hop songs played at a party when an off-duty cop was shot dead in Westport in front of dozens with few witnesses coming forward in the aftermath. By far, the killing was the most brazen of Summer '17 but the newspaper has basically glossed over this homicide which raises far more local conflicts than hip-hop playlists.

In the final analysis, Westport is garbage like most of the people who party there . . . No matter their demographic background.



Throughout most of the modern era, Westport has been a place for date rapists, fake tough guys, desperately divorced and/or chubby white broads and old dudes looking to flaunt their fading family fortunes to the kind of silly women who are impressed by Italian cars.

Now, a spate of greedy developers want to re-brand the district with luxury condos and destroy its historic architecture in the process.

Fact is, burning Westport to the ground still wouldn't dissuade the persistent club rats and all manner of hangers-on from clinging to their Kansas City glory days in this entertainment district that isn't defined by music but instead is accurately characterized by the sickening stench of so many big fish in such a small pond which now includes the sinking fortunes of the Kansas City Star and their disgusting attempt to play party police.

You decide . . .

Leawood doesn't have a decent Mexican restaurant. RACISM!

The Star needs to get over themselves, I'm surprised jenne didn't write their column on this one.

Westport also doesn't have a real country bar which is a shame and a mistake, but nobody cries about discrimination against whites.

Perhaps, in their quest for relevance, The Star's crack investigative team could next scrawl out 3,000 words on the city's lack of a decent Jewish deli.

The local focus on bbq, and the reluctance to promote pastrami, is racism in its most blatant form.

Osterheldt should be all over this, dammit!

This article by the K.C. Star served it's intended purpose. It further alienates and angers blacks against whites.

The Democrat Party, here in town, needs blacks to be outraged and angry at whites when they vote.

The K.C. Star, indebted to the Democrat Party Politicians that subverted taxes from the middle class to support the local paper of record, is serving it's master. That master is in no way, "Objective Journalism" and the reporting of facts for the citizens of Kansas City.

The K.C. Star's raison d etre is to promote Progressive candidates into sinecure, money and power at the expense of the middle class and in service to their masters.

The star is over and done with, they're just trying to start a race war on their way down the toilet. Seriously though, it sounds like they're pouting

chuck said...

"Yes We Can!" Reopen old racial wounds and bleed them in search of political power, money and sinecure.

"Yes We Can!" Lay eggs in those wounds, like the Ayers, Alinsky Progressive Blow Flies that we are in search of political power, money and sinecure.

"Yes We Can!" Subvert the media, colleges, the "Deep State" and the entertainment industry into willing participants in the arrogation of power, money and sinecure from the middle class, tax paying voter into the pockets of corrupt, loathsome, apparatchiks with the ethics, morals and turpitude of Anthony Wiener.

"Yes We Can!" Lie, lie, lie and lie again to the American people and suffer zero consequences from the lickspittle lap dog media.

"Yes We Can!" Co opt thugs in the streets to enforce our new dictates on "Hate Speech" and violently enforce them on camera, on video for all to see and still, suffer no consequences from liberal publications like the K.C Star.

"Yes We Can!" Incite Black Lives Matter thugs to ambush and assassinate policemen all over the United States while the Media, like the K. C. Star stands by and laughs up their sleeves, while enjoying their tax exempt status.

"Yes We Can!" Employ the "Deep State" to spy on political opponents during the election cycle to get a leg up on their strategies and weaknesses.

"Yes We Can!" Do anything we want as we replace hard working Americans with "refugees" and illegal immigrants that vote Democrat.

Hip hop is nothing more than adjustment of the talking blues. And suburban white kids led the charge into the mainstream.

chuck, gets the premises correct but often is mistaken in his thesis. There is a lot of profit to be made in hate and prejudice in true multi-racial fashion.

Without a local owner a newspaper is pretty worthless these days. The Star exceeds pretty worthless though by a large margin.

love to read the comments...informative and educational...really mean that; I'm in my 70's, will readily admit the above comments have both content and correctness...for he most part...accuracy sometimes...Hip Hop is not my favorite "music", not really music to my ears but every generation has it's own so I'm tolerant...you young people most likely wouldn't like Glen Miller..or maybe you do and just won't admit to it, go figure...anyway, as an entertainment district, Westport is most likely doomed as the dollar value for the real estate far exceeds the entertainment value; condos here we come...forget about the idea that the existing infrastructure will not support the future expansions that will be forthcoming...city leaders see only the "mushrooms" that will pop out of the ground and the future tax revenues, those that will come after all the "give away" programs have expired 30 years in the future....so, hip hop yer' ass off youngsteers...

Agree that the Star is a fallen rag. Agree that even though rap/hip hop is just noise to me that no one cares if it's played in Westport. But one thing the Star is right about is that blacks are probably unwelcome in Westport like they are in most majority-white establishments. There's a difference between being welcome and being tolerated. Blacks are like a screaming baby on a flight; you may not anything about it, but you would prefer it wasn't there.

I prefer not to be around uncivilized criminals. Does that make me a racist?

In fairness the Star probably got the "black music" part from the Eminem riff "do black music so selfishly and use it to get myself wealthy". Ironically, though, written and rapped by a successful white rapper.

Gee, I remember a place on Troost called the Old School Lounge. I think it was at 80th? That wouldn't let anyone in under 35 because they didn't want to deal with the foolishness of their own community.

I believe the Epicurean has pretty strict standards too about dress codes and what they allow. Again, because they do not want to deal with the idiots in their community.

No one is crying racism over that?

^^^ I don't think it's all geezers, look at trends in entertainment in KC and all over the nation. Young people don't like going out, they'd rather watch movies at home or play video games. The nightclub is thing of the past now that most people get their social interaction on their phone.

Realism not blind hatred, demographic has earned it's bad reputation, not all, but a large percentage, 10 percent are openly hostile towards whites n emboldened by propaganda mainstreamed into defacto legal doctrine, 50 go with the flow and sympthamize with their tribal preference, few can think for themselves or pick and choose which blatant daily evidence, even those blacks that have had family and friends struck by the black tidal wave of violence have a hard time reconciling the simple truths

Really?! Ever been to clean, safe far flung 'burb cul-de-sacs, or finely upkept inner 'burbs on either side of the state line Friday through Sunday? Perfect partying in peace. Comfy home theaters, fully stocked bars in game rooms, and killer home media dens, even some man caves and fan fitness rooms. Good people investing in their neighborly friendships and guarding home equities. No dirty bathrooms or bars, tip jars, breaking into or dinging your cars. No DUIs, no nasty barflies, no f*ckheads looking for fights guys.

If ya ain't done with the weekly bar scene by the end of college, or about 23 years old, YOU GOTTA GROW UP! Have a plan to fill your own till and tip yourself, if it means WORKING 2 jobs to get your own chill zone safe and sane at home!

A black entertainment district can not pay their bills selling set-ups, ice and paying for triple security. Plus an extra trash dumpster for all the empty liquor bottles found hidden in the establishment and tossed around the parking lot. So they go to white are's and run them out of business. The Eclipse Club up north at Antioch and Vivion is a classic example.
