OLATHE HATE CRIME DEADLY SHOOTING ANNIVERSARY: HAVE WE MOVED PAST 'GET OUT OF MY COUNTRY' RHETORIC?!?!
A year ago today Kansas City media was struggling to sort out the deets of a horrific barroom shooting.
Info from witnesses eventually implicated a down-on-his-luck barfly espousing hateful talk.
Since that fateful conflict, JoCo actually came out in full force support for its burgeoning Indian community and a working-class white dude hero emerged from the incident.
And so because some haters are still waiting on the wall that Mexico isn't going to pay for, we ask . . .
IS JOCO MORE TOLERANT IN THE AFTERMATH OF ALLEGED HATE CRIME VIOLENCE???
It's a nice thought now that we understand Russian bots and their unwitting loser friends are responsible for most of the angry, racist online rhetoric that isn't coming directly from Lena Dunham.
Joking. Check the links . . .
