TKC MUST READ!!! SNEAK PEAK!!! RACISM IN KANSAS CITY: A SHORT HISTORY!!!



Right now our blog community has FIRST LOOK at a groundbreaking work that speaks to the legacy of this town.

RACISM IN KANSAS CITY: A SHORT HISTORY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT MUST READ BOOK OF 2015!!!

Don't just take TKC's word for it, check this important endorsement from a longtime Kansas City power broker:



"Racism in Kansas City: A Short History should be mandatory reading beginning with our middle school children and ending with parents and other adults. ~ Alvin Brooks, from the Foreword, Racism in Kansas City: A Short History"

Here's just a bit of description from the liner notes of the book:

Anti-black racism still infects American society.

African Americans are more likely than whites to be killed by police, to be pulled over, arrested, imprisoned, and executed. They are more likely to be turned down for a job, to be underpaid, or offered a bad home loan than equally qualified whites.

Racism’s effects are tragic. The killing of unarmed black men in Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore, Maryland, triggered riots. A white terrorist massacred black worshipers in Charleston, South Carolina. Eight black churches were burned in the South in ten days.

Kansas Citians, like so many others across the nation, wonder, "Could it happen here?" The answer lies in this study of Kansas City’s darkest moments—slavery, the border war, the Civil War, bombings of black homes, lynchings, the segregation of neighborhoods and schools, the civil rights struggle, the Black Panther movement, the 1968 race riot, assassinations in the 1970s, the infamous Missouri v. Jenkins U.S. Supreme Court case, and the racial inequities that still plague Kansas City today. Threaded throughout Racism in Kansas City are stories of those who fought ardently against racist policies—and sometimes won.

Racism in Kansas City, in the end, offers readers a hopeful message: with awareness comes understanding and then change.

  1. Good God.

    The hits just keep coming for you TKC.

  2. I'm sure Mr. Brooks will collect royalties for his forward. I wouldn't be surprised if it indeed becomes a "must read" for our KCPS students. Like the song says, "nice work if you can get it."

  3. Come and get Tony's bait.

    It has everything to do with attention.

  4. Idiots.

    Do you really think he should of ignored this book release, or not noted who wrote the forward?

  5. Notice how truly racist past events such as slavery and forced segregation are, without supporting argument, tied to "racial inequities that still plague Kansas City today." So the sky high black crime rate, lack of educational achievement, unmarried birth rate and general welfare dependency - none of these are blacks' fault, they're all the continuing fault of white people. So keep giving us free stuff, except more of it. All these social pathologies correlate much better with the advent of Great Society programs than with overtly racist public policies, but that doesn't bring in the bucks so it's off the table.

  11. I taught college classes in Kansas City for several years, and it was so frustrating when I had a student (always at least one every semester) who whined and complained and kept saying he (always a male) just couldn't do this classwork, so would I help him? Again and again and again, I fell for it and helped him, to no avail, until I finally had to tell him that the only way he could learn was to do the work himself. Oddly, when I finally forced him to write his own papers, to do his own homework, to reason through to his own answers, he invariably did quite well. But it was a nightmare getting him to that point. Also it was never a white, Hispanic, or Asian student--always a Black student, and always male. I often wondered just what it was about the Black community that they kept turning out so many wonderful, but initially petulant male students who began our term together by trying to whine his way through his tests and homework. It was certainly not all Black males--but always at least one almost every term.

  12. Hey 4:27 look up info on the MASSIVE amounts of black-on-white crime that occurs all over this country on a DAILY basis. I know the media does its best to not report it but you can find some good links from other posters on this blog. Nobody is more racist than black people. Hell, you hate yourselves too. Just look at all the black-on-black violence. Answer me this: No race gets along with you, including, in particular, yourselves. Given that, how are we expected to get along with you? Look at Asians who migrate to America. They have literally never seen a black person except on TV. What happens when they get here? They hate you. You know why? You earned the hate. They didn't get indoctrinated by their parents or something. It came to them naturally by all of the negative experiences they had with black people. I was the same way. My dad was prejudice and growing up I told him he was wrong. Then I went to college where I was exposed to the real black culture, not the few good black families living in Overland Park. I can't tell you how many examples of unreal black behavior I saw on a regular basis. Just like Asians my opinions of you were EARNED. For years I told my dad he was wrong but just like with a lot of other things in life when you get older you realize your parents know what they are talking about. Then again, I bet "parents" is a foreign concept to you.

  13. Anti-white racism still infects the black community.

  14. There is no real "racism" in KC. We all learned, at an early age, that NIGGERS are bugs to be squashed and not much more. Sure there were a few good NIGGER songs, by the Temptations, etc., but not much else. NIGGERS who don't sing and dance, steal and burn. Yes, we learned that in the sixties and it's still true.

  16. Peckerwoods hand the keys to the city over to the blacks and then come to a blog to talk out their asses and cry like fucking babies. Any of you ass clowns doing one thing to make sure it stops? Hell no! Just jacking each other off in a blog and watching the urban decay grow. Total numb nuts!

  17. Actually, TWICE as many Whites are killed by police than Blacks.

    Whites are more than FORTY TIMES more likely to be assaulted or killed by a Black that vice versa.

    53% of CLEARED murders in the US are committed by only FOUR PERCENT (4%) of the US population -- Black Males 16-35. It may be significantly higher give uncleared/unsolved homicides.

    The NUMBER ONE cause of death for Black males 16-35 is MURDER. Whites males in the same age group: Automobile accident.

    -- DOJ & CDC Stats.

  18. One more:

    In the United States in 2005, 37,460 white females were sexually assaulted or raped by a black man, while between zero and ten black females were sexually assaulted or raped by a white man.

    What this means is that every day in the United States, over one hundred white women are raped or sexually assaulted by a black man.

    DOJ Stats.

  19. White men can't get it up most of the time or they'd be raping too.

  20. Actually, in sheer numbers, whites commit more rapes than blacks, though there's disproportionally greater number of blacks committing rape when per capital measures are used.

    They just don't rape black women. Go figure.

  21. Yeah, racism is HUGE in KC...

    Like our BLACK MAYOR, POLICE CHIEF and US CONGRESSMAN. Pretty damn racist.

    More whining to flesh out the narrative that blacks are victims of white repression and racism...SO IT'S A PERFECT EXCUSE TO DO NUFFIN'!!!

    As for slavery as an excuse, the IRISH were the first slaves in America -- THRU the Civil War.

    And another inconvenient truth -- THE MOST BRUTAL SLAVE OWNERS WERE BLACK. Google WILLIAM ELLISON: the largest slave owner in CHARLESTOWN, SOUTH CAROLINA...and the most brutal. Ironic.

  22. >5:22pm...Amen. Please show the stats, Alvin, of how many blacks kill blacks, assault blacks, etc.

    520, you madam are a retard. You just did the very thing in your comment, that you were castigating others for doing. Is it possible for you to be that stupid, and white? Must have been a couple of coloreds in your mommas wood pile.

  26. 6:52 When you hear Peckerwoods or Bitch, you know you have hit a nerve with Tony and he is commenting back. Anonymously of course. When you get under his skin, he is like a jr hi girl that just got fucked into her period. It's a bitch.

    It's actually funny as hell. The bait slinger getting baited.

  27. Al Brooks and the other vast cast of east side grifters have made very good livings for decades by climbing aboard the 1960s "I marched with Martin" train and riding it to this very day.
    They have no interest in a real conversation about race, no involvement in actually improving their communities by playing a role in their own safety and cooperating with the police, never have any suggestions or recommendations about how things could be improved. In fact,if you ever even try to talk about what policies or programs could be changed and how they'd suggest improvements in their community could be made, these folks don't even know what you're talking about.
    So on they ride, even as the east side population decreases, the number of abandoned and vacant houses and commercial buildings continues to increase, crime, violence, and murders increase, and the condition of regular residents continues to decline.
    Making speeches, blaming others, shaking down corporations and government, and cashing those checks.
    Why change a really good thing for this handful of people, even as the folks they claim to represent continue to suffer?

    You're speaking the truth and I personally know a credible person who had an experience first hand with Al Brooks. He told them that he was offended by people (white folks) from outside the urban core offering suggestions to curb violence and reduce the murder rate of black males.

    My friend was shocked by Brooks attitude and walked away realizing this is what is wrong in the urban core. The self elected leadership is threatened by knowledge and people who care about saving lives.

    And to think he was a policeman for years, a mayoral candidate, and is held in high regard in the community. Speaks volumes.

  30. That's good.

    Tony Botello, lamenting racism in KC when he lets the most ugly, ignorant, hateful, knuckle-dragging idiots spew their racist venom in words on his blog in the comments.

    Nice.

  35. Al Brooks lives outside the urban core himself. He could have stayed and offered an example to young black males but he didn't. Go figure. He said he needed a 5 bedroom house and couldn't find one in the inner city. Al Brooks incites blacks in meetings where no whites are present. He plays to their hatred. Then he plays to the whites when he is among them. No role model there.
