TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY SURVEY SEYZ MAYOR, COUNCIL & PARKS BOARD WILL UNANIMOUSLY APPROVE J.C. NICHOLS FOUNTAIN NAME CHANGE AFTER #BLACKLIVESMATTER PROTESTS!!!
Political reality is changing rapidly in Kansas City and all it took was about a week of rioting and millions lost in revenue and property damage.
To wit . . .
INSIDERS REVEAL THAT NEARLY EVERY MEMBER OF COUNCIL AND THE PARKS BOARD WANT TO ERASE THE NAME OF J.C. NICHOLS FROM KANSAS CITY STREETS & THE PLAZA FOUNTAIN!!!
Only a few out of the loop cornflakes think there will be a public vote on this one . . . Sadly, they don't know how the process works or forget that every vote in this town is rigged and has been decided long before a single ballot is cast.
And so . . .
We expect some entertaining discussion but let's not forget that public testimony is LOCKED DOWN AMID CORONAVIRUS RESTRICTIONS and critics are easily silenced and muted.
Moreover, the narrative has already been written and NOBODY is willing to publicly fight for the memory of a long forgotten, irredeemable racist who just happened to have widespread popular support and success with the complicity of an army of Kansas City home buyers, shoppers, and government officials.
And so, criticism of the move has been quarantined to the Internets whilst elected officials make quick work of this local culture war issue.
KSHB: Taking the first steps toward fighting racism in our community
FOX4KC: Parks commissioner, with Mayor Lucas’ support, pushing to rename JC Nichols Fountain and Parkway
The Pitch: We need to strip Nichols’ name from the city because racists don’t deserve historical celebration
