Refugees In Kansas City Stay Losing?!?!

Credit where it's due, this piece from the Pitch takes readers inside a community not often represented in the mainstream and offers a perspective on their struggle that's tough not matter what political climate . . . Checkit:

How is Kansas City's refugee community faring under Trump? Not well.

jennifer wetzel Istahil Bile lives with her three young daughters in an apartment in Kansas City's historic Northeast neighborhood. It's a hardscrabble kind of life. She takes one bus to her local hotel job, two buses to the grocery store. But Bile is one of the lucky ones.

Poor refugees. Maybe they should go elsewhere. Like, anywhere but here.

Tbqh they need justice in their own lands...whose job is it, theirs. They want a better deal, not to be part of some "diverse" atmosphere. Africans arabs bangladrshi latinos asians don't want to be part of america, they want a part of the consumerist pie. Id wager tge africans in this story have no idea why they are in an apt in northeast in this strange land but hell lets go with it becuz theres indoor plumbing. Justice in their own lands. American is an implied ethnicity, white American and black. There's been tiny minorities of asian latino but a red blooded american boy you picture a white man. Lets be real. If they could have the same money back in their lands theyd leave northeast and never think about kansas city again.

No matter if you accept a million refugees, 20 million will be born tomorrow. Until they can resolve amongst their own creeds and ethnicities they will always be in turmoil. Whose problem is it, their own, they will continue to plead to developed countries until the nations dying breath. One in a mill becomes a doc, wonderful most will be on public aid.

You send A Refuge to Live in the northeast Kansas City Missouri. And many of the living wage Jobs are in the suburbs or Factorys,in smaller towns. If you don't have a car you will be stuck in low paying job's. And you will never get a head. Y

I am sorry the northeast sucks. You should know it used to be nice when the white people lived there. Drive down Gladstone to get a glimpse of how it used to be everywhere there. Then it started to turn to shit. It started to turn to shit when your African American brethren started moving in. The white people for the most part left giving you what is there today. The nice parts of the area are still inhibited by white people that take pride in their homes and property. When black people move on paint peels, grass dies, crime goes up and property values go down. Italians, Irish, English, etc at o e time were all immigrants too that improved their lives. Don't be like the worthless black Americans that haven't been able to loft themselves up a single rung on the ladder for the last 200 years. Also, I'm sure you've figured it out by now but stay the hell away from black people.
