LIKE IT OR NOT: KANSAS CITY LATINO LOW PROFILE SCREWS GOP CONVENTION BID!!!
Kansas City mainstream media is gushing about a Kansas City 3rd place mention in the contest for the GOP 2016 Convention . . .
Check the WaPo article all of the mainstream media newsies are reblogging: Does it matter where the GOP decides to hold its 2016 convention?
The only benefit is the middle-America flyover country locations.
- GOP party people want KCMO to build a hotel and that's not gonna happen . . .
- We're in Red State Country so it's pretty much like preaching to the choir . . .
But this is more interesting than everything else and since the Kansas City mainstream media editorial crew are all-white, they didn't want to mention it:
"For a party that needs to win over Hispanic voters, having the convention in states with low Latino populations might not be the best choice."
Now, the WaPo opinion piece is mistaken because Kansas City actually has a pretty great Latino population that not only skews conservative bu8t also represents a great cross-section Latinos from across the nation from working class to elite and all points in between.
However . . .
BECAUSE BACKWARD KANSAS CITY POLITICS DOESN'T REALLY PROMOTE DIVERSITY AND ONLY FUNCTIONS ON IMMEDIATE PAY-PER-PLAY DEALS . . . LATINOS ARE OFTEN DISREGARDED IN OUR LOCAL CULTURAL SCENE!!!
For instance, despite burgeoning population numbers . . . There hasn't been Latino on the City Council in more than two decades.
This old school mentality . . . AMONG DEMOCRATS MOSTLY isn't just behind the times but also represents another aspect of Kansas City's provincial thinking that always makes this town a 3rd place contender at best.
More in a bit . . .
