A Kansas City Poet Hopes The Next Normal Isn't Anything Like The Old Normal In Terms Of Equality

Considering the times, here is a thought you may find interesting. Blaise Pascal, a noted physicist, mathematician, and theologian once said, "All of humanity's problems stem from man's inability to sit quietly in a room alone."

This is the ultimate example of perceived victimhood. This guy thinks that a virus is racist . . . which is pretty funny since all we hear is that "a virus doesn't respect borders."

Not everything is a symbol of racism, bud.

In Missouri, 54% of covid 19’s victims are white, 38% are black. sorry dirt bag, your narrative just got blown out of the water.

You’d think kcur would check the stats before allowing this type of article to come out but you know libtards. This proves once again how racist and divisive they are.

Did kcur know that because of poor job choices that blacks make they are more likely to be around sick people than the average person? New York thinks so.

It must be true then because New York says so! Lol!

Yep, whites kept blacks away from social distancing and soap. They hid it behind the voting booths requiring ids, should have hid it behind the welfare office or crack dealer.

Keep writing, sensible whites tuned out a long time ago.

Only a moron like you would need to be told that with the black total population of 10% to 15%, covid is hitting twice as hard.

Since you don't understand numbers please STFU about numbers.

" My hope is that we will emerge from this horrific crisis with some hard-earned wisdom. All this sickness should help us realize the importance of accessible, affordable healthcare. "

But acting like a prick to people below me in the social order makes it get hard.

This guy is way out there and not making any kind of point except the fact that he is a racist himself. Virus pandemic= racism? Get over yourself Mr.

And Homos tend to get HIV at a much higher (read the majority ) rate . How we sigh in awe at the statistics. Dumbfounded how certain groups contract illness due their unique practices. Get on board, give up savage lifestyles. BTW- I never see all these liberal save the world types walking down Troost. Nor Prospect, nor anywhere they profess allegiance.

8:54 you know liberals, they think they can walk any where, even in those kolored neighborhoods where they’d be shot dead for being white so....

THE VICTIMHOOD MONOLOGUES

Can all of this man's problems stem from his desire to sit quietly, alone in a room and brood?

"So, sitting alone in my one-bedroom apartment, as I think about venturing out after weeks of self-isolation, breathing stale air, and having only the reflection of myself in the mirror to keep me company, I begin awkwardly stumbling down Memory Lane."

"I think back to that night in 1979, when my mother had to shave off what was left of my Afro. It was because I have alopecia, a disease that causes hair loss. Being a skinny bald kid in the era of big hair, mullets, and Jheri curls made me a target."

"The bike stopped but I kept going, high over the handlebars then face-first onto the asphalt. As I laid there, with the crumbs of what remained of my front teeth settling on my tongue..."

"As a Black man, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention what a bright light this virus has shone on America’s racism."

Glenn North is the director of the Bruce R. Watkins Cultural Center in Kansas City, Missouri. The center is open TUE-SAT 10-6. If you check their website, you'll confirm it's existence as a white elephant project with no listings under exhibits, events, giftshop, or newsletter. The Center has been closed since mid-March.

Don't we have lots of races inside our borders? I'm trying to make sense of your comment but it's vacuous.

Everything proves racism if you are a race baiting huckster.

Ironically the homo neighborhood is just west of Troost. Perfect for the down low bros like 8 :54. It's where the jungle meets the rainbow. Aka- the best of both worlds for 8:54 seekers.

Ratios are indeed important 8:01, like the black population of KC being overwhelmingly responsible for most violent crimes, especially murders.

Yeah, let's talk numbers!

Some of the reasons for move China Flu in African Americans:

1.Higher incidence of pre-existing conditions.
2.Higher level of interpersonal engagement ("social distancing" is white people stuff - homey don't play that).

How's about a new cult called "personal responsibility". That will let everyone off the hook, and only responsible for their own accidents (or dare I say--ANY accidents!) and health, sins, etc. Sounds groundbreaking to midgets raised on lawyerspeak of the last 50 yrs. No more welfare or SNAP- no more 37% of income going to insurance to cover the fat asses waddling down the aisle with carts full of frozen pizzas. No more ANOTHER 30% to cover social programs that endeavor to move unaccountable fat asses next door so they can bitch about unfair test scoring. How about moving the clock back to the old testament and following the law of Moses ? No more insurance, no culture of blame, just MEN pulling themselves up by their own sense of responsibility. We are so deep into this game, when we only have to say ENOUGH ! Don't listen to the parasites who are reaping, listen to the 65% who are paying for all of this madness with real labor. I've been around enough bums to know that when they ain't doin shit but suckin on the tit, they will tell you how hard suck in tit was, when we all know that's the only way you are gonna eat. The great thing about America was that you could labor and--not just eat, but own your own home, land, car, boat, and FREEDOM. Now , because of your complaining, you will work for only food and shelter--no better than a slave. Be Biblically sound people ! Bible says "if you don't work, you don't eat" (paraprhrase).
