KC is home to one of the oldest and most respected black newspapers in America

Royals Rundown: Kansas City bullpen beginning to jell after dismal start

After breaking out of a dreaded 10-game skid with a sweep of Cleveland last weekend, manager Ned Yost declared that the Royals "are a better team than the 10-game-losing streak showed."Some statistics back up that statement. On April 11, following the last of the 10 losses, the Royals' 4.5 runs per game was just below the American League average.

If the call was so respected why does it’s building have graffiti on it? I’ve seen the call at the gas stations and they really need a new printer because it’s faded and barely readable.

I can see an all black news paper years ago when blacks and whites were kept separate. Today it's just plain and simple racism! What if there was an all white paper?? What then???? The ACLU that's what, but funny how black people keep the racism going and then blame white people for it. After reading this article I will no longer rent to black people!!!!!!!!!!

^^^^If there weren't a market for the Call, there wouldn't be a Call. Are you opposed to free enterprise?

That Fatboy Slim video is the worst. Scruffy people in a circle at a mall, pretending to be modern dancers, ...or a plague of grasshoppers.

8:09 Why do you constantly look for racism in black people?

Because you're a racist.

If you refuse to rent to black people you will be sued.

Eric Wesson editor of The Call is highly intelligent and well respected in the community. He does a great job and he "gets it'. Good job Eric. (the fresh flowers on your lapels are a ice touch)

Look Socialist Nazi Byron only one who needs to be sued around here is you but being arrested also fits your crimes. It's easy to not rent to black people and be legal in doing so. Most can't pass a credit check. A bad credit report is all a landlord needs to say no. So nothing racist about that.

Those like BlieROB with booger brains make BLEXIT a bigly bright strategy!!! Funkydunce DISSES decent peeps of both races with faulty Assumptions!!! said...

B.Funkyhoosier, you're a hypocrite and racist. You posted on here, you would believe only an ALL black jury decision in a white woman's employment discrimination lawsuit. That's totally and stupidly biased, bigoted, and buttheaded!!!

There are no guarantees that juries won't have blacks as RACIST against blacks, as YOU are RACIST toward whites. There are blacks who will render fair judgement on everyone, just as they'd want for themselves and their loved ones. Having a particular pigmentation doesn't indicate what one's life experiences--beliefs--intelligence--morality--and total characteristics consist of.

This from the same newspaper that called Sly James the best Mayor we’ve ever had. This strategy is called puffing. Just because The Star says it, doesn’t make it so - unless you’re one of those people that need to have your opinion told to you. In that case, The Star is spot on. Lol
