TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! COUNCILMAN QUINTON LUCAS LAUNCHES 'RACIAL JUSTICE' AGENDA AMID UPCOMING MAYORAL CAMPAIGN RALLY!!!



As the election approaches there's no question about where Councilman Quinton Lucas stands on some of the most controversial social justice issues confronting Kansas City.

To wit . . .

JUST NOW COUNCILMAN LUCAS REVEALS HIS "RACIAL JUSTICE" MANIFESTO FOR THE KANSAS CITY MAYORAL RACE!!!

His team promises TV & ground game support to back up his efforts.

More importantly . . . Councilman Lucas seems to be making a bold push to galvanize 3rd District and social justice warrior support in order to not only strengthen his base but also reach out across the city to some of the most active denizens of the local discourse.

In a crowded field where all of the candidates seem to agree on most progressive principals . . . This "racial justice" branding has the potential to stand out among some of the most engaged voters.

Here's the word FIRST on TKC . . .

Mayoral Candidate Quinton Lucas Releases Economic and Racial Justice Platform, Goes First on TV Ads, and Announces Racial Justice Rally This Saturday

KANSAS CITY, MO - Today, mayoral candidate Quinton Lucas is releasing a set of proposed reforms to address issues of economic and racial justice in Kansas City, augmenting the message with the first campaign ad buys, and announcing a racial justice rally this Saturday at 4pm at the corner of 31st and Troost.

With proposals ranging from pardoning all stand-alone municipal marijuana convictions to creating a KCMO Municipal ID Card that provides residents identification regardless of immigration status, the platform outlines concrete steps Lucas will take as Mayor of Kansas City to improve the quality of life for all Kansas Citians.

“If we are going to build a city where we all can prosper, regardless of which zip code we live in, we will need leadership that removes burdens to people getting good jobs and being able to take care of their families.” said Lucas. “ That’s why I’ve proposed a sweeping set of reforms to address the inequality, often on racial and socioeconomic lines, we see too often in Kansas City.”

Lucas’s Economic and Racial Justice Platform includes policy stances on economic development, affordable housing, education, healthcare, criminal justice, and tenants rights.

By releasing the platform, Lucas becomes among the first mayoral candidates to provide clear, concrete steps to address inequalities throughout Kansas City. The platform can be found on the campaign website.

“It is time for us to get beyond talking points and discuss real, substantive solutions” said the Councilman.

Some of the most striking proposals include decriminalizing mental health and addiction by supporting alternatives to incarceration, continuing to support a living wage, and the creation of a liaison within city government to support minority and women entrepreneurs.

With this platform, the Lucas campaign is announcing their first ad buys on local television and radio. In a crowded field, the campaign expects being first on TV will help Quinton Lucas build the name ID to get through the primary. The Lucas for KC team says they will use the ad buys, including digital messaging, to reinforce specific aspects of the platform, including the creation of a Municipal ID and the decriminalization of marijuana.

To engage the public on the specifics of this platform, the campaign will host a Rally for Racial Justice on Saturday, March 16th, at 4:00pm at the corner of 31st and Troost.

Only in his first term, Quinton Lucas has been a leading voice on the Council, working with local businesses to drive private investment and job growth while also leading efforts to secure quality housing opportunities in all Kansas City neighborhoods. Endorsed by leading civic groups and with strong campaign resources as we head into the primary, Quinton is a leading contender to succeed Mayor Sly James.

The racial angle is what he needed to finally edge out Canady & Reed. They seem to want to play it safe and hope they can get white votes. Slapping justice on to it has a better chance of luring some of the SJWs. It'll chase a few people away but they were probably going to vote for someone else anyway.

At a time when AOC is leading the Democratic Party and the left is becoming more radical. Lucas is definitely leaning that way and making the campaign explicitly racial is drawing a line in the sand for a lot of people. Some may not agree but it's a lot more bold than anything else I've seen this election cycle.

So we've got one person willing to do what it takes to make the primary. Now waiting to see if anybody will want to try and go for the white vote.

^^^ White vote. Don't you remember the returns from Sly's election. Northland and Clay County stayed home. They are easily discouraged and don't vote when things get really nasty. I have a feeling this could get even more interesting.

Don't blame me, I'm voting for THE GENERAL!

Smart move, 3rd District is the only voting block that is locked in and the social justice advocates needed a call to action. The rest of the candidates split all of the votes among a variety of special interests.

Anonymous said...

He's basically supports the same economic agenda as Sly only with a little more side stepping and deference to "justice" on a few issues like housing. Vegan Sly?

Anonymous said...

I thought we were trying to pull the city together? Lucas wants to rebuild the dividing wall along Troost. The East side will never rise up and off the plantation as long as they continue to elect the same type of politician. Lucas has shown he is a Liberal Socialist which is not good for the poor of our community.

Anonymous said...

If he is so keen on development why did he back the idea of condemning the Paseo to further perceptual poverty by renaming it a racial epitaph ?

^^^ That's a good question that actually make sense BUT the revs say that MLK Blvd is actually an economic stimulus. So far nobody has challenged them on it.

Anonymous said...

@11:39 The Property Owners who filed the lawsuit challenging the name change and the fact that the Council did not follow the City Charter in passing it are challenging them.

The case goes to a hearing at the end of the month, that's why the City Crews are no longer changing the Street Signs.

I know better said...

^^^ Why does anybody need to challenge the Revs? Do they own a stake in the majority of property along that corridor. The quick answer is no and the community at large doesnt even go to many of their churches which is why so many have diversified and started schools, housing projectd, etc. The Revs arent more influential than they are toxic males trying to assert their beliefs on everybody elsr. I agree that if Lucas really was committed to resolving inequities, he would not have allowed political pressure to prevail over the public will. Paseo is no Ward Parkway and I dont care who suggests otherwise. A quick drive down Paseo shows its equally as blighted as any other thoroughfare on the Eastside. Quinton should lose on this platform because his voting record contradicts his purported agenda. I hope folks are conscious enough to delve deeper, beyond the propoganda.

Amused said...

So... Quint decided that the drunk vote wasn't going to be enough to put him over the top? Probably a wise move to diversify.

Racial justice? We have a black mayor for crying out loud. Keep avoiding the black on black homicides. The elephant in the room.

11:16, just a point of fact: AOC is NOT the leader of the Democratic Party. Nancy Pelosi is the leader of the Democratic Party. You've been watching too much Faux News.

Yeah let's perpetuate black privilege. And black privilege is defined as never, ever divulging the reality of black crime so as to protect the black community from unfair stereotyping pattern recognition any normal human would quickly confirm as fact.

Right, Tony? What you do daily?

Anonymous said...

Has Quinton ever owned his own business? Made payroll every two weeks? When a mayoral candidate has done that they will earn my vote. He is nothing more than another minority willing to pander and divide. ID cards regardless of immigration status? How do you justify this bull shit to your law students, Quinton? You're an embarrassment to the black community, the legal profession and Affirmative Action.

What a fuckin joke. The one issue, identity politics of black candidates are so predictable.

"Racial Justice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Imagine, if there were no black people in KC. The city coffers would be overflowing. We could afford to pay street department workers $100,000.00 a year to fill potholes. You could leave your doors unlocked and no one would have to move to the suburbs. The KC School District would be overflowing with soon to be Rhodes Scholars and Andy of Mayberry could run the Police department without Barney's bullet.

Instead, not only are we cursed with a population of violent parasites, we have to hear ever fuckin election cycle about the sub-culture in the inner city being dystopian, disgusting charnel house and of course, it is WHITEY'S fault.

These pukes go back to the well again and again with the same old shit and get the same results. Meanwhile, the truth is, that White people are raped, murdered, assaulted and robbed by ever growing legions "People Of Color" and we are supposed to keep quiet and ignore it while this idiot lies and gaslights you to your fuckin face.

We are dead, in black on white hate crimes that Mr. Lucas will never address because he will be too busy blabbering about Emmit Till or "Racial Inequality".

Screaming over and over again that whitey is "Racist" works and works well.

^^^Yes, but not everyone cries like a bitch about it, & calls for the eradication of a race of people as much as chuck E. cheese does. So there's that.

Anonymous said...

Do your research on Lucas. He is a fraud from Atchison trying to pass himself off as a mommas boy born and raised in Kansas City. The unfortunate thing is he thinks that will make him more relatable but it instead exposes him as a fraud. Lets do take a look at his voting record. That should tell you enough about his commitment to equity. He is all about the title and low D-List celebrity of the position of Mayor. He and Reed, Taylor and a host of others. I would rather vote for Clay Chastain.

1:22 Go tell that shit to the families of the victims.

The Blood Trail leads straight to your lying, gas lighting, "victimization" narrative. You, you filthy fuckin puke and others like you, who traffic in lies, deception, legerdemain and the manipulation of the low information, uneducated fools who believe your lies are directly responsible for the mayhem and murder that is so ubiquitous in our cities.

But hey, you get elected and acquire power, money and sinecure with your bullshit, so, I guess the wounded, dead and raped citizens are worth it.

Next up, "Hey Quinton, I think we can gin up some more votes/hate with a demand for "Reparations"!!!!

We are dead in black on white hate crimes that no one cares about, because they are busy listening to bullshit about racial injustice.

Hey, no one mentioned me. I killed 5 people and that is about 20% of the dead white boys and girls here in KC over the last 2 years or so.

I need some run, I did a good job killing all of those old folks out at 129th and Wornall.

All Lucas is doing is pulling the race card this makes no sense at all he's acting like it's 1960 again, and in other words saying that white people get all of the good jobs without coming right out and saying it. This is the biggest bunch of crap ever. What he needs to do is start telling black people to stop the killing but instead is saying better jobs for them is going to do the trick. This is BS and also RACIST!!!!!!!!!!

I never knew, growing up white, that I was so bad, so toxic, so privileged. I worked hard for many years we (the woman I married and I and we are still married) had kids raised them got them educated and successful. I've never been in a jail except to build one. I've never killed anyone or been accused of Racial injustice in my life. But growing up white is a bad thing? I don't get it.

Giving immigrants a KC ID so they can get a real job isn't good for the poor? A nation is only as prosperous as its labor force. Adam Smith said that. Wake the fuck up. Its the opposite of socialism. Its empowering the individual. Its the American dream.

Its why Vegas truly does favor Lucas.

What's embarrassing is your lack of understanding of basic economics, or perhaps your xenophobic attitude.

There are more job openings than there are applicants. There are immigrants here willing to work and add produce to the city. What, other than your insistence on highlighting race and nationality, is wrong with empowering these willing productive hands to enter the work force?

Any one that is so stupid as to vote for this guy deserves what is going to come next. KCMO needs a mayor strong enough to stand for all citizens, not just blacks, and to create an environment that this city has been lacking since Richard Berkley was mayor.

Allowing Mexican immigrants to seek productive labor, and keeping blacks out of jail for smoking weed ADDS to the production of the city. Empowering them empowers their employer as well.
