Kansas City Star Prints Sunday Bad Poetry

To be fair, TKC is not a site for literary criticism but as the government shut down continues, local economic disparity increases and innocent old ladies are gunned down on local streets . . . The newspaper publishes tribute to the Civil Rights era. Read more:

Dear Dr King,
Aren’t those fat fake revruns in Kansas City something? They want to honor you by naming a street after you. I know you would rather the fat fake revruns would get to work. with people of color to stop murdering and robbing each other. To quit living on welfare generation after generation and instead trying to become good citizens of their communities.

Dr.king would be ashamed of what has become to the black community! The man fought and sacrificed his life for the betterment of the black community, and all they can do is kill and Rob each other! The black community is much like the white community of the 60s. The black flight to the suburbs to avoid the inner city violence has increased substantially in the last three decades. So this isn't something new that is happening to the black community for which he fought struggled and died for. I think he would be ashamed of the Jesse Jackson's and the Al Sharpton's of the world. These two men have done much to hurt the black community while enrich themselves exponentially. I think dr. King would be mortified and embarrassed and enraged to see any local Reverend selling themselves and their congregation out for a vote a certain way so the so-called Reverend's can get new suits. On this holiday coming up I wish we remember the true meaning of dr. King, judge not a man by his color of the skin but by the content of his character! To all the bloggers out there may God be with you all to all the atheist of the world God is with you always.

WOW this guy accuses all of us killing MLK??? And the white privilege part is unbelievable too! Lets see, who was it that gave all blacks a free ride just for being black???? Oh yes, it was LBJ.

Rev. Vernon P Howard Jr. keep that racism going, oh and then point a finger a all white people!

I wonder how many blacks out there say they hate whitey? Well to start just look at the football field on game day when they play the anthem! Pig socks, Black suppression, when they are making millions and no one gets fired for protesting on the job. Except whitey of course.

Racism truly falls on the laps of black people and this guy proves that!!!!!

My theory is, just stay the hell away from them.

Once again, an obese fake reverend does absolutely nothing to honor Dr. King's message, and can't wait to be a happy slave on the left's plantation. Disregard.

Have him add a post script to his letter explaining why color of skin is now more important than content of character.

The content of their character? You mean like committing murder and a very high disproportionate rate, illiteracy at a very high disproportionate rate, out of wedlock births, single parent homes, welfare dependency.

Dear Dr. Howard,

Congratulations on your selection to have something published with the intent of honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Unlike myself, you are a privileged man. Please remember that with privilege, comes responsibility. Dr. King said,
“Lamentably, it is a historical fact that privileged groups seldom give up their privileges voluntarily. Individuals may see the moral light and voluntarily give up their unjust posture; but, as Reinhold Niebuhr has reminded us, groups tend to be more immoral than individuals.”

Dr. Howard, in your introduction, you stated that The Kansas City Star asked you to write an essay for publication in their newspaper. Did they explain or did you inquire as to how you were selected for this honor? The reason I ask is because, as most are aware, The Kansas City Star is a flagrantly biased organization that doesn't reflect the broad views within our community. Myself and numerous others have never been afforded the opportunity to express our views in the newspaper, and have even been retaliated against for differing views. Let me give a couple of examples:

1) The Kansas City Star Editorial Board, the opinion voice of the paper, is comprised of 7 individuals. Only one is a person of color, and he is the most recent addition. See above, "privileged groups seldom give up their privileges voluntarily." As well, if you review the entire writing staff at the paper, you will find journalists of color underrepresented. Compounding this problem is the fact that The Kansas City Star publicly writes from the Progressive Left viewpoint while failing to practice what they preach. It strikes me as a rather unjust posture.
2) Do McClatchy Editorialists Know The Racist History of Their Founding Fathers?
By Jack Cashill July 7, 2018
3) Death Star II - The Newspaper of Record's New Editorial Board
By Dwight D. Sutherland, Jr. April 7, 2018

I'll ask no more of your time, but leave you with one more quote:

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

Thank you

There once was a nig named McCall,
who never did work at all.
He has food, cars and crib,
and eight bastard kids,
And whitey be paying for it all.

There once was a coon named Darshel,
who had a curious smell,
some say like poop,
or an old chicken coop,
but with niggers you never can tell.

Actually, I liked the poem. It was thoughtful and very inspiring. If you didn't find meaning in it. You need to look within your soul. Thank you Reverand Dr. Howard. You are a good man.
