Kansas City MLK Park Cleanup

Credit to local volunteers . . . Instead of complaining via social or mainstream media . . . They grabbed supplies and started clearing away junk in order to improve an increasingly important local tribute to the civil rights icon. Checkit:

Kansas City group begins clean-up at Martin Luther King Jr. Square Park

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- One group, taking special interest in Martin Luther King Jr. Square Park, took the first steps at restoring the site this weekend. Volunteers hosted their first park clean-up event Saturday. More than a dozen people showed up to help, removing everything from trash and clothes, to needles and broken bicycles.

All that trash comes from the hoodrats, they throw their trash everywhere including flush creek, when the water is high you should see the shit floating down the creek and it ends up on the banks when the water goes down.

As one can see the black race really gives a damn about the name MLK.

Be interesting to see how much support this grassroots effort gets from the revs.
Maybe march on down to city hall and shake down the cowardly elected for ten or twenty thou.
Or even root around the sofa cushions at their churches and find a few thousand bucks.
But probably way too much actual work and no where near enough TV face time.
Guess people who actually care about their neighborhood will have to do all the work themselves.
Be interesting to see who shows up for the televised ribbon-cutting, though.

ALL I KNOW IS THAT EMMANUEL CLEAVER, VERNON HOWARD AND MARK TOLBERT GOT THEIR FANNIES SPANKED IN AN OVERWHELMING VOTE TO RESTORE THE PASEO MONIKER. LOL WINNERS ONE. LOSERS LOSE SORELY.

Hm, 12 people in a city of 650,000. Sounds like the love for MLK is overwhelming.

Waste of time they will just trash it again. Make them live with the trash that's what they like isn't it? Living in a dumpster.

Dr. Rev. Vernon Howard is missing a great photo op. He should be there leading the clean up effort along with Cleaver.

Whoa, this town does not have a population of 650,000. Never has and never will. However, I get your point. 12 people out of 480,000 people is still a shitty turnout. Black people always complain but never help on causes they're passionate about.

And they wanted to name a street MLK.

Being the Cordish Family are closet racists and serial discriminators we should rename the KCPL thing Martin Luther King Power and Light Entertainment District.

@ 417 - I have a counterpoint to your statement. They come out for prayer vigils and corner demonstrations. Never mind, I guess you're right.

There’s litter and there’s landfill. That picture is unbelievable. Blacks truly cannot live like civilized humans.
