VOTER 'SAVE THE PASEO' PETITION STAYS WINNING!!! KANSAS CITY MLK BLVD REBUKE SOON TO EARN 'RACISM' MSM OUCRY AND SPOTLIGHT!!!



It is accomplished.

Fox4: Kansas City votes to change Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard back to The Paseo

KMBC: Kansas City residents vote to restore The Paseo name

KCTV5: Kansas City votes to remove King's name from historic street

Northeast News: In Tuesday’s special municipal election, Kansas City overwhelmingly voted to rename Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard back to The Paseo Boulevard.

Deets:

With 99% of precincts reporting, just over 31,000, or about 69%, voted “Yes” to bring the Paseo back while just over 13,900, or about 31%, voted “No.”

And here's what's gonna happen . . .

WE LOOK FORWARD TO MSM ONCE AGAIN DESCENDING UPON KANSAS CITY AND TAGGING THIS ENTIRE TOWN AS RACIST FOR THE HISTORIC REBUKE!!!

What we learned is that most of the "Save The Paseo" activists are delightful homespun characters who aren't quite ready for prime time and will likely ruin their careers with on camera interviews . . . Personally, TKC can't wait for the quote frenzy.

Even better . . .

THE REVS WIN!!! THEY'VE TAGGED THIS MOVE AS RACIST & NOW WILL HAVE A NATIONAL STAGE FOR THEIR ARGUMENT!!!

Even better . . .

KANSAS CITY WILL SPEND EVEN MORE TIME AND MONEY TALKING ABOUT THE MLK LEGACY & PICKING A NEW STREET!!!



Meanwhile, voter turnout hovered betwixt 5-6% in KCMO and most people had more fun ways to spend their Tuesday night . . . Which is saying something in this cowtown.

Developing . . .

Clay County and Platte County get to decide a street in KC's Black neighborhood. Not fair at all. Admit it TKC, this is racism and white privilege in its purest form.

Tim Smith isn't a leader. Dude has problems. And he's got a career life span of 24 hours now.

Save the Paseo was about pride of place. The only racists are those who believe that this was about race at all.

I'm glad Save The Paseo won. The way the vote was done was improper and corrupt. KC said NO. This is a good sign for the future of our city.

Shame on you said...

KC = The most racist city in the midwest and the only American city to take down an MLK street name.

Shame on you scum.

None of you wanted to honor the memory of Dr. King. You are truly the most racist individuals KC has ever seen. Worse than Trump. The actual Klan in person.

It’s not racisrt, MLK had no connection here but people who grew up on pesto do. This is about our city and what we want. Our city wants Paseo and that’s ok. Let the vote stand and stop killing each other!

Racist whites showing their true colors.

Same with racist blacks.

Welcome to KC!

Save the Paseo are the same people who cheer the Royals when they lost 100 games and buy Chiefs tickets without a Mahomes. They are the people who clean up Cliff Drive for thousandth time. They are the same people who know that the Wild West started here, that Walt Disney learned important lessons here, that Hemingway learned to write here, and that we were Vegas before there was Vegas. Shame on those who would steal that legacy to substitute a political agenda.

Carbs KC said...

People who grew up on PESTO?

Where is Pesto Blvd?

Pesto Blvd sounds DELICIOUS!

I want to go there.

Anonymous said...

But the question remains, will the Mayor and Council follow the will of the people?

Recent history, (Streetcar expansion ban and the very act of trying to name this street after MLK), as well as past history (failure to adopt the Light Rail Plan approved by the voters) says they will completely ignore this vote, and do what they want or rather what they are told to do.

This arrogance is endemic to this town's City Government, and a little insignificant thing like the wishes of the People has no relevance at 12th & Oak.

Where was the racist screams when in 1975 the people along prospect avenue shot down changing prospect to mlk? Wouldn’t allow the change because of what again? Prospect has history right? The Paseo has 100 times more history than prospect evar will so.....

If Kansas City is so racist why does KC have an African-American mayor, county executive, sheriff, and U.S. Representative? Kansas City has the largest number of voters within Jackson County BTW. So if KC was a hotbed of white racism it's not likely that any African-Americans would be elected to the above mentioned offices.
Also, with a turnout of less than 10%, doesn't that indicate that the African-American community really didn't care that much about the MLK/Paseo question?
Considering how many black voters we have, if they had been seriously committed to keeping the boulevard MLK wouldn't the vote results be much different?

Just asking.

You are a foolish silly person. I voted to Save the Paseo but support naming something after MLK. We have a park named after him currently. We could improve it. Or select another street. But let’s do it the right way with citizen input and not five crooked reverends trying to shove their agenda down everyone’s throats.

Anonymous said...

You don’t know what you’re talking about. When this sham name change was being shoved through council by the Revs, the people who live on the Paseo were against the change. The will of those people was ignored do that certain councilmen could cater to the Revs. Now those people, mostly black, have had their say and the name changes back. It’s not racist at all.

Not to mention our black Congressman, Congressman Carwash Cleaver, is a deadbeat who doesn’t pay his bills and STILL gets elected. So not only is KC not racist, we are tolerant of deadbeats who don’t pay back bank loans and court judgments.

I'm very proud of the people in Kansas City who did the right thing in this vote. I could tell the enthusiasm from my friends who lived in the Northland to show their opinion and hopefully set City Hall back on the right track. We need to have good representative government that checks with the people and not the same old grifters who want to do backdoor deals. That's what I think the messages with this vote. It's not racism at all but good government for everyone. Great job KC MO!

Good grief people, why does everyone keep ignoring the fact that there is an MLK Park in KC? That should be more than enough for a city that MLK had very little to do with besides making a speech to a small group here one time.
Not to mention, the black population needs to focus on real problems in their hood, not street names.

9:26 PM Fat, Black religious groups should NOT be enabled to make decisions arbitrarily in predominently Black neighborhoods, either. That is just as racsists as what you’re suggesting. In fact, what you’re stating is 100% fiction. The truth is, a ton of Black people, including myself voted to Save the Paseo because the wishes of a few elderly Black guys passing themselves off as religious leaders of Blackness is equally as wrong as suggesting that White people up North voted in favor of this. Unfortunately, for Black people, unity will only come in the form of trust and there is none among the Black community. How you degrade trust is having groups like these Black religious folk start making shady, underhanded dealings with politicians to do something merely because they wanted it. These types of actions breed mistrust, which is odd in and of itself that the religious group would do something like this. Black people have bigger issues confronting them and this should be a wake up call that the Black Revs on the Eastside don’t run shit but their mouths - and they’d be better suited to just shut the fuck up - and do what they signed up to do which is save souls in the most violent part of this town. Win at that - and we’ll see if they can win at much else.

Not only is Freedom Inc. not accustom to losing what they thought was a grip on the Black vote; but they are also bad losers. Winners without Freedom Inc. include Brandon Ellington and Alysia Canady, that I can name off the top of my hate. These detractors, together with their ailing fat, Black reverends can kiss my ass. I haven’t voted “the entire freedom inc.” ballot since I was a young, dumb kid who didn’t know better. Now, that I can read, interpret and make decisions on my own - nearly none of those people who are listed on those little yellow slips have represented my interests, despite having Black skin.

Kansas City is not racist, just rational... but not all of the time. They elected fat-assed, self hating Sly James as Mayor. Anybody suggesting that Kansas City is racist with a nearly 50/50 split on black v white council people currently (the most the city has ever seen), Black Mayor, Black Sherrif, Black County Executive, Black this, that and the other - and none of it - has done a lick of good to change the Black experience/condition in Kansas City.

Black clergy represent themselves and only themselves. This name change was never the will of the people, it was the will of a super-minority; and it is them who are on this blog, anonymously, shouting racism - when the truth is plenty of Black people voted for this. Do White people outvote Blacks - yes - and it’s also a predominently White city with over 60% of the population being and/or identifying as White. I didn’t vote for White supremacy. I voted against Black religious domination... that’s the real racism - the elephant in the room. White people have got to stop giving their money to Freedom Inc. and acknowledging the false narrative that these preachers speak for or represent the interests of an entire people.

Long live Marcus Garvey & Brother Malcolm! Black people need to do some real work - and it has nothing to do with renaming streets. Learn to read, teach the community about financial literacy, but most importantly, build trust and positive relationships. Black people kill relationships and that’s mostly due to the instability of our emotional state. Deal with the hurt and the pain but you cannot find strength in misrepresenting people based on their color and making arbitrary decisions for people just because they are Black. That’s not strength or leadership, it’s fraud. Missouri ought to get tough on these types of groups and start prosecuting them. It’s not allowed in Kansas or anywhere else I know of.

@5:28am makes some of the most courageous and accurate recommendations for the black community that have ever been on this blog or publicly stated anywhere else.
Their comments should be picked up by the clueless Star editorial board.
But comments like these are shouted down by the very people who make believe that they're "leaders" in the black community hen in fact they continue to sow dysfunction and loss, all purely to benefit their own power and financial success.
Doing the same thing, the same way, with the same people and then blaming everything and everyone else for failure after failure.
It's too bad the elected "leaders" in KCMO and Jackson County have neither the imagination or courage to change the narrative.
Where there is no vision, the people perish.

Disgusting:
Sly James
Jermaine Reed

KCMO should pass an ordinance which would prohibit Reed and James to do any business or have any association of any kind with KCMO.

It is annoying that our street crews are now twice tasked with swapping out perfectly good street signs (paseo —> MLK; now MLK —> paseo) instead of focusing on more pressing needs, which if you drive a car or ride a bike or walk around our city streets/sidewalks you may have noticed the city is largely busted and fucked up so there’s so many needs .... this has been such a pointless distraction, stupid sentimentality and symbolism not substance.

Whoever said comment above about “ manufactured crisis” -exactly. The whole thing is really really stupid. It’s a good point about platte and clay county voters have a say on a street in a largely black part of town, but the response is Kansas City is in multi counties + democracy ...

Thanks,
