TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY CONSULTANT: MLK RACISM ALLEGATION DRAWS LINE IN THE SAND FOR VOTERS!!!
We're days away from a debate to settle an issue that has sparked urban core discourse for more than tow years as some local activists want to uphold a rewrite of the landscape of Kansas City and others want to defend history.
About a week ago in an interview with Fox4 morning anchor Mark Alford, the most important remark of the debate was FINALLY spoken aloud.
And so we talked to a Kansas City political consultant who is too timid to share much data, basically thinks the vote is a statistical tie but offers this insight . . .
ALLEGATIONS OF RACISM AGAINST 'SAVE THE PASEO' SUPPORTERS WILL DETERMINE THE ELECTION OUTCOME!!!
Check the quote in a message sent our way . . .
"More than any other remark, the declaration that supporting the "Save The Paseo" was an indication of racism and "white privilege" resonated among potential voters. A small sample of polling of likely voters found that those who agreed with this statement were more likely to vote in the election. Meanwhile, the same question posed to those who strongly DISAGREE with the statement said that the remarks would ALSO encourage them to a vote. REMEMBER THAT IN A LOW TURNOUT ELECTION THE SIDE THAT CREATEs MORE EXCITEMENT AND RESPONSE FROM VOTERS ALMOST ALWAYS WINS."
And so, as always, the sordid question of alleged racism and culture war informs another vote about a stretch of road that extends into neighborhoods enjoying a revival and a diverse new gentry of residents vs. other parts of the street which continue to suffer poverty and extreme urban core creme.
