The black people on the east side of Troost stay there because they want to and they have wondered over into Hyde Park so what's with this racial divide bit? If a white person goes east of Troost they will gang you I've seen it and had it happen to me and others. It's obvious they don't want to get along and neither do we, call it whatever you want just let it rest it's an old story repeated way to many times.

Oh and did anyone notice the MAC Co has not started their project on the four corners (Troost and Armour) like they said????? Maybe because they were told to hold off until the appeals for the tax hike to be over so property owners couldn't use the construction as a tool to get their taxes reduced blaming the construction on loss of property values??????

9:32 troost divide is an excuse from the blacks, they’re using it as one of many excuses to get more free stuff. THEY DON’T WANT WHITEY IN THEIR HOODS NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND. Idiot sjw’s make it worse because they’re stupid.

This just happened on the news tonight, some old ass black lady umkc teacher just blamed segregation for the fact that today’s koloreds are ten times more at risk of drowning than whites! I kid you not! Segregation at kc’s swimming pools ended in 1954, she actually blamed whitey for today’s kolored kids that can’t swim, freakin hilarious!

Side note, there are five outdoor and five indoor swimming pools in the hood that I garauntee white people dont or shouldn’t go to because they’re not welcome there. Unbelievable.

The Farmers aren't the only ones excited about the expansion of the use of E-15 fuel.

The decrease in MPG (lowered BTU outpit due to Ethanol) and therefore increased fuel consumption by all vehicles is giving the Oil Companies a little tingle too.
