KANSAS CITY NORTHLAND TO CHOUTEAU COURTS: GET OUT OF MY COUNTRY!!!
Check this community news report on social media bravery and maybe a bit too much faith in local codes enforcement amid this issue that has evoked ire for nearly half a decade.
Northeast News: Not In My Back Yard
Deets and perspective from Northeast News:
"Last week social media exploded yet again with another hate-filled rant started by Northlanders fearful that residents of the Chouteau Courts housing complex would be relocated to an undeveloped corner near Barry Road and US-169 highway.
"If you were privy to the thread before administrators pulled it down, it was filled with bigoted and ignorant statements such as “keep the hood in the hood,” and a variety of other epithets hurled at not only the Paseo Gateway project but at the residents of Chouteau Courts themselves, almost as if they were part of a leper colony. Facts be damned, this thing was on fire and spreading faster than a flu bug in a room full of kindergartners . . ."
