TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY BIZ MAG INGRAM'S CONFRONTS TWITTER STORM OVER ALL WHITE MILLENNIAL COVER!!!!



Push back against Kansas City print media was fast & furious as soon as old school local biz mag Ingram's published a mostly worthless tribute to young movers & shakers . . .

In a public tweet that gained quite a bit of traction, one of many critics noted:

"You’d never guess there are more than just white millennials living in Kansas City if you saw this cover. Truly unacceptable."

A followup . . .

Do people just not even think about it like “wow there are only white people in this group that is supposedly representative of a broader population?”

Even former Mayor Sly was in agreement with the critical sentiment.

Another fun comment found in the mix . . .

"That's been Ingram's shtick forever. Finding a minority on its pages has always been like finding Waldo. But I've also never understood what Ingram's actually does..."

Brief aside . . . That's actually a pretty fun game and their covers have a few minorities who garnered recognition!!!

A quick look at the staff won't reveal much diversity either.

To be fair, KC's top right-wing dude penned an EXCEPTIONAL column in this month's issue basically debunking the "millennial myth" that seems to be the premise of the cover.

Jack Cashill: Are There Enough Millennials to Go Around?

So, in some small way, he's actually on the same side of the SJWs who are crying into their pillows about this oversight.

And so . . .

Ingram's generated some publicity with their latest cover but it's unclear if they'll garner new readers from the tweet storm mostly comprised of locals who don't venture far outside of their social media bubble or read much beyond digital blurbs.

Developing . . .

Hey now, they've got a guy in a wheelchair and some other guy in the back who has a tan.

THAT is diversity my friend!

The Cashill comment was worth it but the tweets are just the same old crybaby junk from people who can't be bothered to put down their phone. They would get mad at the weather for being racist and they only function to hate people who have accomplished more than they have. It was a nice cover, too bad they had to ruin in for those who accomplished something and got recognition for it.

That's the real news to me.

TO CRITICS OF INGRAM'S MILLENNIALS COVER:

Ingram's is a private business and gets to feature whomever they wish. If you don't like it, start your own magazine.

And while you're complaining about Ingram's, please don't forget to direct some of your proportional racial/ethnic/gender/sexual orientation outrage at groups practicing exclusivity like:

100 BLACK MEN OF GREATER KANSAS CITY, INC
COUNCIL ON AMERICAN-ISLAMIC RELATIONS (CAIR)
EL CENTRO
GREATER KANSAS CITY WOMEN’S POLITICAL CAUCUS
GUADALUPE CENTER
JERUSALEM FARM
JEWISH COMMUNITY RELATIONS BUREAU
JEWISH FEDERATION OF GREATER KANSAS CITY
KANSAS CITY INDIAN CENTER
LATINO COALITION OF KANSAS CITY
LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS
MIDWEST CENTER FOR HOLOCAUST EDUCATION
MUSLIM AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MISSOURI
NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN
ONE STRUGGLE KC
PARENTS, FAMILY AND FRIENDS OF LESBIAN AND GAYS OF KC
PROMO-KANSAS CITY
SURJ-KC – KANSAS CITY, MO
TRUE BLUE WOMEN
UNA WOMEN, UNITED NATIONS ASSOCIATION OF GREATER KANSAS CITY
URBAN LEAGUE OF GREATER KANSAS CITY

Let me know when you need a longer list. Thanks

So they’re demanding they put koloreds on the cover, for what? Drug dealing? That and murder is all they’re good at so.....

^^White men think they are being oppressed, & will tell you they are losing "rights" everyday. They just can't actually tell you what any of those rights are.

You don't really see the difference, do you?

The NAAWP is called the United States of America. That's why you don't need any other organization to represent you.

I like what I see here. If you look closely at that tweet and the comments, it's mostly white Millennials who would like to see more diversity. That's right, white people want to be more inclusive of others. At least the young ones do. As for you pants shitters. I guess you'll have to pout and cry that younger Generations don't seem to be as racist and stupid as you are.

@10:03, I understand that you only live to hate, but recognize that @9:49 was right on the money.

As you may (or may not) have heard, even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while.

There would have been "diversity", but the Black Millennial in KC was on his way back from Lawrence when the picture was taken, and the two "Latinx" ones were still sobering up,

9:20, FTW.
Not to mention, if a young black does anything entrepreneurial, it’s something like being a rap producer or hip hop show promoter and is defunct as quickly as it starts. Hardly something to waste print space on.

Funny to see Sly James comment on that. His whole tenure as mayor was focused on white millennials.

Well I worked at DST Systems. I am white, college educated, so were all others in the upper ranks. But just cause your white doesn't anything! Many of my coworkers were lacking any morals. Whether is was having affairs, sleeping with bosses, stealing someone's credit for good work, or lying about others, or just plain hating others. So a picture of white workers should be taken as it is- imperfect and flawed people.

At Sprint some of the white young professionals went to the AMC movie theatre across from the campus during work hours. Some made out with each other there. One Sprint manager, a mid 30s white woman, would go to Town Center and introduce herself to men she didn't know and have sex with them in her car, in the parking lot, during the day. All the time! She lived in Prairie Village off Roe Ave. White people are just as bad as any other race.

If you find a "diverse" person that meets the criteria you are seeking, then include them, but don't go out of your way just to have a token because the "diverse" person knows that they are only being used as a tool to inoculate the organization from criticism/guilt. Tokenism is disingenuous and seeks to serve the organization more than the "diverse" group.

Ingrams is an overblown church bulletin. All of their favorite goody boys are always featured. And if you pay, you can win their awards. I get every issue dropped on my desk and it goes straight in the trash. The guy that reads Ingrams is the guy who seems to know everyone, loves networking events, but never closes a deal.

Like how diversity just means brown. These people could be irish, russian, swedish, canadian, etc, but unless there's ethnically vague brown people they will chimp out

You missed the point goofy! 9:49 was in line with what the story is about.
You got knocked the fuck out at 9:49 in one of your many many many posts you will make today that have nothing to do with anything other than be hateful and stupid, so how about you just shut the fuck up weirdo?

Maybe the koloreds can start a magazine called weed magazine! Or murder mayhem!

Don’t they a whole wall of pictures of blacks at the post office? It’s called most wanted! Hahaha!

When the publisher took over Ingram's about 20 years ago, he wanted job candidates to do work for free before making hiring decisions. What a joke. That tells you all you need to know about the leadership.

Not a single Inuit-American in the photo! How long will we let this assault on cool people go on?

Phil Cardarella said...

Perhaps there are no non-whites whose friends/businesses think it worthwhile to buy an ad "congratulating" them on being "chosen".

This has always been a vanity project for those on the cover, and a way for Ingram's to increase ad revenue.

If not for whites the diversity people would be digging holes to shit in.

Agree with Phil. Business magazines have always been nothing but a scam to help careerist try and get a better job. Usually out of town.

Lots of white hate here. That's unfortunate. Because I actually think this is a successful publicity stunt for the magazine.

White hate has been earned. The only thing that was earned.

Oh,@5:38 - what language do you use - White!
What style of clothing do you wear - White!
What forms of technology do you use - White!

Even your vaunted "Black Culture" is a hodgepodge mix of borrowings from White and Arb cultures (ask any of your brothers or sisters using an Arabic name what their name means - any Arabic speaker can tell you, can any Black).

The only true African cultures progressed no higher than mud huts, everything else was copied.

^^^^ Sorry kid, that tech you using now was made in China and designed in Japan. They're not white. Try again to keep boosting for your self esteem with stuff that you played no part in and didn't create.

Where would the world be without whites you ask.. take a look at Africa, south america...and ask is anyone trying to immigrate there...do you want to live there and live under their laws?

If there really was a superior race the other races would despise it, try to conquer it, would want to be it, would lust after its women. Is there such a race?

The real issue is : If you were not born to look like a movie star - your never going to be on the cover of this magazine. Most employers do not look at productivity metrics -they look at how attractive people are and promote based on looks. Its a proven fact and it cost the economy billions each year. Sometimes unattractive or people over 50 could be a better choice for upper management in hi-tech firms.

Funny how female latinos in white collar offices do not have to pull their weight, cause they are needed for diversity quota rankings submitted to the government. Some that have married white men even have regular last names like smith, jones, white, Jenkins, Williams and have to prove they are latino cause their names seem Caucasian.

Nobody ever said Asians couldn't copy shit, in fact they're almost as good at stealing and aping things as Blacks are.

Nobody reads Ingram's anyway. This is the first time I've heard about the magazine in years. Wouldn't exist if there wasn't a bunch of people who want to buy their own stories.
