TKC TUESDAY QUESTION: HOW CAN WE HELP KANSAS CITY ESCAPE SHAMEFUL 'WORST PLACE TO LIVE' LISTING???



This year online rankings proved exceptionally embarrassing and detrimental to Kansas City branding.

The Prospect corridor ranked among the most dangerous places in the United States.

And . . .

Across the State Line KCK didn't do much better in a ranking that named it among the 50 worst in the nation.

To wit . . .

WHAT CAN KANSAS CITY DO TO IMPROVE A HORRIFIC REPUTATION THAT'S MOSTLY FOCUSED ON CRIME AND LACK OF ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY?!?!?

So far, the answer from city leaders throughout the metro has been touting "creative class" jobs that might not really exist, promoting fake news about 25-million annual tourists OR simply running a lot of smiling selfies.

Like it or not, a horrific homicide rate that earned national attention this year is really this town's calling card and a real world contradiction to so much developer & politico hype.

You decide . . .

You mean to tell me that 25 million people aren't rushing to our defense in order to dispute online content.

That's a shame.

Two words.

This is what helpled Kansas City overcome it's violence crime and homicide epidemic.

Those two words are:

Pizza party.

And we're got a plan: Deal with it.

Nicely done.

I was thinking candle light vigil but I like your idea better. Sounds like much more fun.

Simple solution: Stop the murders.

You can come up with all of the branding and marketing you want but it's not going to work if there are 150 murders in KC this year. No matter what, that murder statistic overshadow everything. Or at least they should if people are being honest about what influences them when considering a visit to a city .

Get a government in position at City Hall who makes #1 reducing crime in the city over shiny new toys.

Get rid of sLIE James International airport and the murders will drop, we’ve never had these kinds of problems until this fat bastard showed up and ruined this city

The very common denominator in all of these places, is simply, blacks. No, not people, just black animals...

wise up kc said...

Get the guns off the street. Not for whites and their privilege or any other potential law breaker. The guns are the problem.

Everyone knows what the real problem is. If you say it you will be deleted

^^^ Then you should start your own blog and see if anybody gives a shit.

I'll say if for you @6:06 because you're a coward and a crybaby.

You think blacks commit all the violence.

Did blacks shoot up an Applebee's and kill a man who was just trying to have a drink while telling him to get out of the country?

Did blacks kidnap and kill two innocent girls and cause a metro wide police search this year - the kind that Kylr Yust did?

Did blacks commit most of the drug crime in Northeast. No, that was illegal MEXICAN immigrants.

You have your facts wrong, you don't know what you're talking about and you don't have the intellectual ability to argue without using racial epithets. I'll wait for your answer all day, because you need to think about my words. I just took you to school.

Jameson said...

That is very condescending. You should be nicer about making your points. Maybe then you would convince more people. Because you kind of sound like a dick.

Yes, blacks did commit most of the crimes, followed by illegal aliens. As long as the victims are black and/or muslim, there is not a problem, it's called natural selection.

whites men committed more mass shootings this year in the U.S. than any other ethnic group - That seems like a reason for racial profiling to me. Take their guns away!

Sly James and city hall are the problem. Clean house, and stop letting the criminals back out on the street. I agree, Sly has ruined this city, and it will take years to get it back again if we ever get a decent Mayor, but no decent person wants to run, and if you put a black person in charge of the city they will do just what sly has done and favor the black kids with pizza parties, who know they can get by with gang violence.

Prof G you have your facts wrong so all you said is wrong you ignorant slut.
It wasn't an Applebee's for one and two what color face do you see posted in this blog alone probably more than once a day? Not the face of an Amish farmer thats for sure. It's hateful ass blacks doing all the killing and crime. But assholes like you think the black race never does anything wrong.....Bullshit

Anonymous said...

Blacks do seem to do a lot of killing proportionate to their numbers.

Just throwing that out there in case others have maybe noticed that trend.

Prof. G is so full of shit that he may actually be a professor. Only a lifelong association with the academe can fill a person's head with so much nonsense.

"You say that blacks commit most murders in KC. But this murder, that murder and the other murder were committed by whites. Therefore, you are wrong."

The studious Professor has studiously avoided logic classes.

150 murders, at base minimum 130 are ebony vics and ebony perps ,one white guy slaughter houses Las Vegas Vs the every day slow cull

The solution is simple. Move a certain 30 percent of the population into Sly's neighborhood. I certain he will become very creative about solutions at that point.

Get rid of Jackson Co. judges who are soft on crime and keep releasing thugs back to the streets.

Mogadishu on the plains y'all! Get used to the new normal. Mayor Bullhorn and Jolie don't give two fucks about crime.

Like Clinton said, "It's the ECONOMY, stupid!". Put people to work and the crime with drop precipitously. Period.

The only visitors murdered were the three hood rats from Tulsa that git ripped off.

Build more jails.

I have a few suggestions...How about resolving conflict with words instead of weapons; how about being responsible for your actions; how about respecting life? How about getting and keeping a job, taking care of your family, and how about doing the right thing BECAUSE it's the right thing to do? Stop worrying about how much money you can flash, what kind of stupid shoes you wear, or what kind of car you drive.

Blacks have committed 80% of the crime and murders in this city and about 55% of the crime nationally. That’s a lot of murders and crime for 13% of the population

JJ said...

It's also drugs.

Look at all of the poor whites killing each other in places like Blue Springs, Independence, MO and as far out as Belton.

Focus on getting people treatment and counseling instead of jail. That will help reduce the crime.

That answer is such a cop out. Drive down any major commercial street in the metro and count the “now hiring” signs. They’re everywhere. Yes, they may be $10/hr jobs, but they’re jobs. And ask any manager; if an employee is eager, able and dependable, they will advance to higher paying positions pretty quickly. Sadly, liberal society has convinced high school dropouts that they’re worth $45k/yr so they turn their noses up at anything less.
