TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY STARTS REPLACING MLK BLVD SIGNS ON THE PASEO AFTER VOTER REBUKE!!!



Some skeptics among our blog community doubted this would ever happen and today there was celebration of this move and just a bit of regret from other locals . . .

Northeast News: "Kansas City Missouri Public Works employees are busy this morning replacing signs on The Paseo after November’s vote to reverse a council action last June that changed the name of the Boulevard to Dr. Martin Luther King jr. Blvd."

This morning Fox4 anchor Mark Alford was the only reporter on the scene and conducted some very thoughtful interviews.

This is reassuring for some amid ongoing debate over community tribute to the Civil Rights Era icon.

A great day for Kansas City.

Thank you for linking this TKC and thank you for reporting on the slow movement.

All voters were necessary in making sure the will of the people was accomplished!

ILLEGAL VOTE!

Some of the signs will stay up. This was a scam and a hate crime against Kansas City. It will not stand. MLK Boulevard Forever.

The scam was when the race baiting reverends bullied the roundheels on the City Council into changing the name of the street.

^^ 7:25 MLk was racist, He also hated Homosexuals. You knew that ? No you didn't. Like any Dumb fuck, you can call others on something you haven't a clue.

Replacing the street signs is a good start.
Now what the residents and voters of KCMO have to follow up with is replacing all the irresponsible self-appointed clowns who came up with this idea and the cowardly electeds who got rolled to vote for it.
And let this identifiable group reimburse the city for the hundreds of thousands this wasted.
Good place to introduce the concept of accountability.

Killa Avenue is everywhere in KCMO. Troost and Prospect could be express Killa lanes.

This is a shame, shows was a RACIST CITY that Kansas City has become. Too bad.

A couple of signs down does not end the debate There are thousands of people who still want MLK Blvd. The conversation is not finished.

Think about it.

^^^ But the majority of people do not want the name to be MLK Boulevard, and the majority rules - that's called Democracy!

And yes, @10:06, the conversation is finished, but the racist whining by a spoiled minority that didn't get one of their whims catered to continues.

The vote was illegal. The petition invalid. It should be appealed in court. Think about it!

Anonymous said...

^^^ TOTAL B.S.

The vote was valid, certified and all of the city rejected this failed idea!

Give the MLK signs to the colored folk to hang in their driveways or on their porches. That way they can look at it and celebrate it anytime they want for free.

Mark Alford couldn't conduct a thoughtful interview if his short little legs depended on it.

You dumbfuck. Kansas City has always shown or demonstrated racism. The mere fact that a person can pinpoint a classified black or white neighborhood on a map demonstrates racial division. However, this name change does not show how racist the city is. What it demonstrates is corruption under the guise of racism. Corrupt Black, low life preachers rightfully got their asses handed to them. They were out of order with this arbitrary name change and I dont care what Black person's name they use, it was unlawful how the name change took place and lawful now that the street signs are being restored at the will of the people, the majority. There's a small minority who want it and that is their problem. Democracy demands that the majority sets the law of this land.

Actually, the facebook live capture was good and informative. I dont care about bashing people more than the delivery of facts.
