Dissecting the Troost Divide and racial segregation in Kansas City

By Diane Euston with contributing historian Tim Reidy Cover Photo from Missouri Valley Special Collections/Kansas City Public Library A long overdue conversation about systemic racism has ignited across the nation, perpetuated from the pain of witnessing on camera the killing of George Floyd. What followed were protests and genuine cries for change in our city.

The killing of George Floyd has nothing to do with racial segregation or Troost. First off George Floyd died from a heart attack and those cops will never get a fair trial.

Were the riots in KC due to George Floyd? NO THEY HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH FLOYD!
Troost will always be the racial divide that is something that will not change. Maybe when black people can change and start acting like normal people something will change but not until then. And rest assured that will never happen!
Racism is worse now than it was years ago. No one wants to be around black people.
One thing I can say about Joe Biden is, he was all for segregation and so am I. It's something that you will see brought back soon! How sad for the black people that learned out side of the jungle they will be the ones who suffer.

Developers are trying to end Troost as the dividing line so they can pick up cheap real estate to sell to white millennials - after they get the taxpayer subsidy of course.

10:16 your preoccupation with geriatrics, diapers and trailers is very disturbing to us in the medical community! I think with a little help you can break this addiction and return to a more normal lifestyle!

The little trendy and artsy Brooksiders west of Troost don't invite no Negro to lunch. nor to their 5 years olds $1,000 birthday parties. Like many of you, they just place signs of support for BLM. Which really means not to mess up their fem husbands and pseudo artsy wives "perfect" neighborhood. I'll keep the standard golden retriever out of the mix. Don't be too fake on your supports. None of you hang on Troost past scoring some bud or a bump. Put another sticker on the Volvo crossover and feel great about your lives.
