KANSAS CITY STAR REPORTS ON CHALK!!!

There's a legit argument that this reporting is worthwhile . . . To each his own. But selling this to consumers is another story altogether.

Here's the link tease for the paywall which we wouldn't dare cross . . . Checkit:

Chalk message in place of vandalized KC lynching memorial calls out 'hateful actions'

Days after Kansas City park officials discovered that a memorial to a Black man lynched by a white mob in 1882 had been thrown off a cliff, chalk art has been drawn in its place calling out the vandalism as "hateful actions."

This is the least hateful thing being done lately, 85 murders is worse than this by a long shot.

A noose dangling from a tree would be better.

"OK Boomer," “Geezer” or another variation used in a disparaging tone = the new N-word equivalent phrase that tries to diminish and dehumanize the elderly and make them sound stupid in a “hip” way. Imagine if people started saying, "OK N****r." Age discrimination and elder abuse are alive and well in America, and these issues are as disgusting, shameful and wrong as racism.

At least it's not presented as cold hard facts. It's an opinion piece regarding local voices that don't happen to match yours. It's 100% appropriate, and one of the few pieces of local news that's not showing to the rest of the world that we're a bunch of racist asshats.

Wow. Do tell, Tony, or whoever the fuck runs this ridiculously-biased, bullshit blog, how exactly is this hurtful being "sold" to consumers?
