Kansas City Mayor Sly Leads Yet Another Meretricious Conversation On Race

Meanwhile local voters are far more concerned with infrastructure, local government transparency on taxpayer subsidized development projects and rising crime rather than politically correct and mostly pointless cable news talking points . . .

James, KC schools join with Kauffman Foundation to begin conversation on race

Kansas City Public Schools, the Kauffman Foundation and Mayor Sly James have teamed up to organize the first in what could become a series of community conferences aimed at improving the civic dialogue on race. "The Truth Project: A Racial Equity Workshop" will convene the second of its first two sessions - the first was Friday - on Saturday at the Central Library.

Postscript: Good on you for looking up "meretricious" and thanks to a kind reader who sent TKC a word of the day calendar for X-mas!!!

An average IQ of 75 + low impulse control = inequality in housing, education, and other city institutions. Trillions and trillions of dollars have been spent on propping-up Blacks with "get out of life free" passes in the form of welfare, affirmative action, set-asides, diversity initiatives, murals depicting "urban heroes", and on and on. This will be more of the same.

^^^ Sounds like most of the white meth addicts I know. They aren't doing very well either. Meanwhile, this year I've met half a dozen Black attorney's and they're all millionaires. Sorry to bust your racist bubble but things don't work the way you think and you're just trying to justify your own failures. So maybe this conversation on race is important if it can keep you from blaming your own failed life on everyone else.

^^^ why are you hanging our with black lawyer millionaires and meth addicts?

Sounds like you know a lot of interesting people.

I like the cut of your jib!

Every time a liberal says they want a conversation, it means, “shut up and listen white boy.” Like the first commenter raises a very good point about IQ, and the lack in the ‘hood, and someone else says, “I know some successful blacks.” Well, duh, they just don’t live east of Troost.

This self-serving propaganda is why you fail. We can't have a real conversation about race until blacks can be honest about the genocide in their communities, the failure to achieve generational wealth, and why all the handouts and programs in the world haven't been able to fix the disaster of black 'communities.'

This conversation is leading up to sLIE coming out of the closet! He’s a sensitive fella and he doesn’t want his wittle feelings hurt when he does. His son came out as gay but he’s too scared too! Lol!

8:01 is right, 8:06 you are an idiot, what are your “black millionaire buddies” doing about the problems that plague the black community? Nothing just like you. Are you the little white guy that worked for sLIE? Your name Brian by any chance that works with sLIE’s millionaire lawyer son? Don’t worry about the little people, just keep working for sLIE’s son and raking in big fat checks earned off the backs of the poor whom I might add your causing to stay poor because you and your black millionaire buddies keep taking their money

8:06 I call bullshit. Provide the names of those attorneys, I happen to be looking for one. I don't know any methheads but I am familiar with small towns that have a lot of white trash in them. You know what they don't have? Crime, in particular violent crime. Why is that? Big cities across America are setting or nearly setting murder records. Who inhabits those areas of the city where most of the murders take place? Why is it in every city those same people inhabit the zip codes with the most murders?
They want to have a conversation about race they need to start by looking in the mirror. Most blacks are killed by blacks. Most whites are killed by blacks. They need to quit blaming their failures in life on white people. Racism doesn't make them drop out of school at 14 tears old. Racism doesn't make them start having babies at 15 years old. Racism doesn't make the baby-daddy have nothing to do with his keeds. Racism doesn't make the typical nuclear family almost non-existent in the black community. Racism doesn't make them unemployable. Being uneducated, unreliable, having a terrible work ethic and attitude does. Racism doesn't cause generational cradle-to-grave reliance on the government to feed, shelter, and provide health care to people who refuse to work for anything they want. The entire rest of the world has figured out education is the great equalizer. Corporations are dying to hire black people but can't find them because so few qualified black people exist. After all, staying in school makes you an Uncle Tom. Black people way,way too often do everything possible in life to themselves to assure failure. Until they have a massive and unlikely cultural change where they take responsibility for their own lives and change their behaviors to actions that help ensure success instead of guaranteeing failure nothing will change for them.

@9:43AM...+1....look at other minority groups in the US. East Indians and Asians come to the US and how to they get out of poverty? Education and hard work. They become doctors, engineers and small business men. How to blacks get out of poverty? Sports, entertainment and crime. If they can't be Lebron, some rapper they try to become Nino Brown.

That's why blacks are behind ever race of people in the nation.

"Racial equity" is an extrememly vague term. Make the organizers define what it is and, just as important, what it is not. My hunch is they intend the term to mean equality of outcome, and not equaity of opportunity.

Sylvester James, who's been married twice, both times to white women, will attempt to distract residents from his policies of public corruption by explaining that white people are infected with an invisible racism gene.

Funny that he didn't see the racism at Burns and McDonnell when they were showering him with campaign donations, and he reciprocated by having the city finance their new HQ building.

Funny that he didn't say anything about the all-white corporate leadership at Burns and McDonnell, and their choice to reside in Kansas and Lee's Summit, instead of KCMO. He tried to reward them further with a no-bid billion dollar airport terminal contract.

None of the white Kansas developers that Sylvester James has steered tax breaks and incentives to in exchange for campaign cash and favors must be racist. He just wants to lecture and scold the white people who are stuck living in KCMO.

What DexKC fails to mention is he met those law dudes in his fave Barry BathHouse. Plus, he had a typo: those half dozen law dudes are all "millenials" , NOT "millionaires"!

Why is it called diversity? Or "all inclusive" all that means is several blacks are at the table. I see that infrastructure simply means that ALL of the contractors that tythe (make a kickback) at Cleavers church are going to get a little richer this year. Dunn, Burns & Mac, DST they'll dig into their mentorship program for minorities and let them bid so they make their mandated numbers and then the contract will be awarded to a member of the Cleavers church through the mid America minority council started by the Dunns in NY. Why? because thats the way it's done and NOBODY can or will do a thing about it.
