SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY AFRICAN-AMERICAN FAITH LEADERS CLAIM EFFORT TO 'SAVE THE PASEO' POWERED BY RACISM AND WHITE PRIVILEGE!!!
In a groundbreaking interview, Fox4 morning anchor Mark Alford shares the inevitable accusation of racism at the crux of the MLK Blvd vs Save The Paseo vote.
Here's his description of a recent conversation . . .
"The Paseo Boulevard was a strategically designed artery connecting the burgeoning parks system that helped define Kansas City, Missouri.
"Recently, a group of pastors led an effort to rename the boulevard for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. They convinced the city council to go along it. Now voters will decide on November 5, 2019 whether it should be changed BACK to the Paseo. Some of those pastors say it’s a racist attempt. You decide in this two-part interview.
"In this episode, hear from Vernon Howard and Sam Mann, president and vice president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference of the greater Kansas City area."
Take a listen:
Part 2: Fight for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard
Money line . . .
"This is the perfect epitome of the pathology of white privilege that suggests that white people can decide what a street name or a Blvd will be named in a predominately African-American community -- In which white folks in the city have had very little interest investing in, living in, keeping up, beautifying and maintaining. In fact, the interest of white folks have been more in other areas. How is it now, that we arise to lift up an African-American hero in a prominently African-American area and have the pathology of white privilege say "NO . . . You will not do that?!?!" We believe there is something wrong with that picture. And we believe there are white people of good will who understand how significant this is to the broader community. And not only that . . . The African-American children who need a symbol of hope and peace and beloved community in this town."
Accordingly . . .
