How Multi-Ethnic Stockyard Workers Propelled Kansas City Into The Modern Age

Diversity built Kansas City that's why they discarded any history like the Paseo. Diversity meaning blacks only.

FAMILIES built Kansas City. They were families of every color but the family unit was key in the progress of our city and it's current demise.

Diversity is a code word for White genocide.

12:21 There is no white genocide. Children are the future, so if you won't have children then you have no future.

Diversity means not living a little cocoon of only fellow WASP's.

@7:58 Ethno-masochism is a form of self-hatred. Self-hatred is a form of mental illness. Multiculturalism is ideological syphilis.
