Kansas City Rename Week In Review

Newsies return to discuss all the not-so-fun local topics we've been fighting about for the past five days . . . Checkit:

"Nick Haines, Mary Sanchez, Dia Wall, Steve Kraske and Micheal Mahoney discuss the debate over removing the J. C. Nichols name from fountain and parkway, UMKC considering renaming the Miller Nichols Library, changes to policing in schools and airports, efforts to strip pot possession from city codes, proposal for residency requirements for KC agency heads, the Kansas U.S. Senate race and more."

Take a look:

You decide . . .

How about the Kempers and UMB's lending practices?
And go back as many years as it takes.
There's no end to judging people of the past by current acceptable standards.
In twenty years that current "victimized" group will be demanding that things we're naming now be removed.
What does the Latino community really think about the "Buck O'Neil" bridge?
Be careful what you wish for.

Rename the "Buck O'Neil Bridge" he had an unfair and privileged position in sports. We should not name bridges with the names of people with an DNA and genetic advantage.

>Just tear the fountain down.

With how expensive the upkeep on these are, this is not a bad option. It isn't like the JCNichols fountain is high art it is overly baroque and tacky.

We essentially have an entire city of White Elephant fountains. Too "beloved" or "historic" to tear down, too expensive to properly restore.

The KC Star has a very racist origin in its name.
Very racist.
The name should be changed and the business shut down.

Suggested mottos:

1. We hate whites and catholics non- journalists society
2. We’ve never contributed to anything good in 2020 biz
3. Let’s wear masks and shut down society for a year
4. Our reporters quit and do blogs and spread insanity in colleges biz
5. We love green! That’s why we still put dead trees in driveways
6. Our old old religious writers that look like they are dead are god-like
7. Our sports writers- we get ride of the good black one
8. Our crossword puzzles are amazing
9. We hate Trump we hate trump we live to love all gays and all non-heterosexual non-binary non-trumpeters

Nick Haines should be removed and replaced by a Black host.

Steve Mr. White Privilege Kraske needs to shut up also.

Don't miss that opportunity to put even more "Xs" in boxes of inclusion, diversity, and political correctness.
Haines should be replaced by a bi-racial, black, transgender, vegan, woman.
Let's go for the home run!

Guess what is really great about KC. If you guessed 'nothing', you'd be correct.

Guess what you missed last week while the media filled the TV with Riot and Virus coverage:

Tuesday, 6/2/2020, Hillary Clinton was in court and lost her case about the missing emails and will have to testify in September.

Wednesday, 6/3/2020, Rob Rosenstein had to testify; and his admission exposed heinous plot against Trump.

Thursday, 6/4/2020, the Senate voted to subpoena Obama officials in the Obamagate case.

Did the media show you any of this?

Just something to think about! Actually is just facts and truth!

I have often wondered about why Whites are racists, and no other race is......
Someone finally said it. How many are actually paying attention to this?
There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, etc.
And then there are just Americans.. You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction.
You call me 'White boy,' 'Cracker,' 'Honkey,' 'Whitey,' 'Caveman'... And that's OK..
You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day.
You have Black History Month.
You have Cesar Chavez Day.
You have Yom Hashoah.
You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi.
You have the NAACP.
You have BET....
If we had WET (White Entertainment Television), we'd be racists.
If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists.
If we had White History Month, we'd be racists.
If we had any organization for only whites to 'advance' OUR lives, we'd be racists.
We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce.
A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but any color can be in the Miss America pageant.
If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships... You know we'd be racists.
There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US .
Yet if there were 'White colleges', that would be a racist college.
In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights.
If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists.
You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're not afraid to announce it.
But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.
I am proud...... But you call me a racist.
Why is it that only whites can be racists??
There is nothing improper about this post.
Let's see which of you are proud enough to send it on.
I sadly don't think many will.
That's why we have LOST most of OUR RIGHTS in this country.
We won't stand up for ourselves!
It's not a crime YET.... But getting very close

I'm okay with people being proud of what they are. The fact that you feel threatened by anyone else doing the same just shows your racism. No matter who you are.

Media and POLITICIANS AND THE GLOBALIST ARE Dividing the Country. The people donating to these organizations are mostly white. It's Divide and And then implement the World Order .They will be your savior. You are being played .A FEW Thousand want To Take down Statues, And Millions think The Crazes have TO MUCH TIME ON THERE HANDS .

9:26 The National Association for the Advancement of White People is called the United States of America.

The only "rights" you've lost is the right to lynch blacks for being "uppity", the right to beat up homosexuals & the right to beat your wife & children.

Yes, I call you a racist.

You wrote a racist creed about the poor white men & how everyone is picking on them.

Congratulations! You are what's wrong with America.

Pardon me, but I couldn't help but notice that all of the sponsors mentioned at the opening of the program are white or white-led corporations.

Nick Haines is a white male Kansas resident by way of Wales (United Kingdom). He loves BBC.

Dia Wall is a black female, liberal Democrat, completely down with BLM and the toxic "blacks as victims" indoctrination.

Steve Kraske is a white male Kansas resident, formerly with the bankrupt KC Star, and now with UMKC/KCUR. Steve is a liberal Democrat and enjoys cracking nuts.

Michael Mahoney is a white male old-school newsman who is a bit of a legend in KCMO. Though he's slowed his pace, Mahoney was always at his best when challenging authority and holding those in positions of power accountable for their actions.

Mary Sanchez is a self-described KCMO Latina, formerly with the bankrupt KC Star, now an independent syndicated columnist. She is a liberal Democrat who rarely strays from the DNC talking points bulletin.

So-called news journalists who have time to squander on the possibility of renaming fountains and streets are pampered privileged pontificators. Record-breaking homicide count in KC? Oppressive tax burden on KCMO residents? Crumbling infrastructure? KCMO budget deep in the hole? KCFD as rogue operator with no oversight? Quinton Lucas living in City-owned subsidized housing near 18th and Vine? Mandatory facemasks in KCMO when only 133 hospitalizations and 32 deaths YTD? Do facemasks cover the mucous membranes of the eyes?

WEAK IN REVIEW, where privileged newsies talk a lot about silly topics that don't amount to much of anything.

9:26 comment = a REALIST

10:03 comment = an IDIOT who completely missed the point 9:26 was making.

Another example:
National Association for the Advancement of Colored People
If a white person were to use the term "colored people" in public, they would now likely face backlash amid accusations of being racist.

Anyone incorporating an entity called the National Association for the Advancement of Caucasian People would most likely be prosecuted for a hate crime.

Week in a review is just a bunch of old drunks getting together and trying to convince people that they are smart. All of you alcoholics need to retire. They look pathetic grasping to be needed.
