TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! WESTPORT BIZ KEEPING QUIET AMID NAACP PROTEST AGAINST STREET PRIVATIZATION!!!
Tomorrow the Kansas City Chapter of the NAACP will detail their plan to oppose Westport Street privatization.
Behind the scenes and after after speaking and messaging with midtown insiders . . .
NAACP OUTCRY SPARKED WESTPORT BIZ INFIGHTING!!! STILL, LEADERS ENCOURAGE MUTED REACTION TO PROTEST OVER ALLEGED CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATIONS!!!
Local newsies looking for quotes might have to search just a bit harder given that Westport merchants have been warned that anything they say could be misconstrued and interpreted as racist or unwelcoming.
Consider . . .
- Westport biz UNANIMOUSLY supports street privatization.
- This street "vacation" is actually scaled down from the original plans."
- The process took nearly a year to carry through and KC NAACP objected but was not so outspoken during public comment.
And so because we think there's still more room for debate, discussion and advice on this topic . . .
BEHIND THE SCENES WESTPORT BIZ LEADERS ARE ENCOURAGING THEIR COLLEAGUES TO KEEP QUIET IN RESPONSE TO NAACP OBJECTIONS!!! IS THIS THE RIGHT STRATEGY???
You decide . . .
