THE TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! KANSAS CITY IS AMERICA'S FAVORITE MEXICAN MIDWESTERN TOWN!!!
Quick shout out to our late night lonely heart Kansas City readers who may or may not be in the midst of a celebration in honor of a nearly indecipherable holiday.
Despite its roots in the Chicano movement . . . Cinco De Mayo is now just another drunken American festival of gluttony which means that it belongs to EVERYBODY.
As much as people want to BUILD THE WALL . . . Far more people like beer and tacos.
Don't take it personally, the Chinese tried the same trick and that FAILED too.
Just a bit more proof that cultures mix & mingle despite the best efforts of big government. Check this (re-link) latest national culinary tribute to a debate betwixt neighborhood restaurants, hipsters and trendy foodies:
The Demand for ‘Authenticity’ Is Threatening Kansas City’s Homegrown Tacos
Nevertheless . . . In Kansas City there's more enthusiasm to make this town Mexican rather than make it great.
While officially not a "sanctuary city" . . . Immigration enforcement in Kansas City trails far behind other places in both Kansas & Missouri. Overall river city seems welcoming to new friends from South of the Border. Local history: Immigration from Mexico is not a recent "problem" and it's a tradition that goes back 100 years.
More importantly, the history of this town is based on corruption, big biz interests above all else and so much local commerce is connected to the free flow of trade & labor despite the blather of politicos from either partisan perspective.
So call it the beginning or end of an era . . . Either way, there's an abundance of big booty Latina ladies throughout Kansas City and that's not entirely a bad thing.
In the final analysis we've noticed that despite ongoing culture war debate . . . From JoCo to KCMO, this town is pretty enthusiastic about tacos and all things Mexican during this fiesta weekend.
Still, in the spirit of good times, we don't want to alienate our Conservative friends and so we offer a bit of hope that the Prez Trump MAGA agenda has a special place in the heart of Latinos who also believe in AMERICA FIRST:
Hispanic Conservatives Chant ‘Build The Wall’ In Front Of The White House
And so, with respect for every perspective . . .
MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU AND HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO!!!
Here's our playlist tonight inspired by all of these fun facts, snark the late night sharing of our bloggy culture . . .
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night.
