TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY HUSCH BLACKWELL HONCHO BLAMES LEGACY OF SLAVERY FOR CIVIL UNREST!!!



We post this tiresome missive NOT ONLY because it offers a glimpse into the brilliant legal mind of one of our many betters BUT ALSO given that the screed reminds us that publications completely subsidized by sponsors are always doomed to produce horrible, well-meaning but pedantic content.

Today's example . . .

Jeff Simon, partner at Husch Blackwell: Business, civic leader: Chains of slavery were built for profit (then and now) — together we must dismantle them

Money line in an extensive polemic . . .

"In Kansas City, maybe visit the marker down the street from the River Club where Levi Herrington was lynched by a white mob on April 3, 1882, after being falsely accused of killing a Kansas City police officer.

"Here is the point: the deepest roots of slavery are economic. Slavery is directly and inextricably bound up with business and commerce, profit and loss, opportunity and expansion. The legacies of slavery are also rooted in economics. Excluding blacks from economic opportunity means more opportunity for whites, or so the thinking goes. For example, the Ku Klux Klan enjoyed a resurgence after World War I, even to the point of holding its own big parade down Constitution Avenue in Washington, D.C., in 1925. One of the reasons for its new popularity was that poor whites returning from the military faced a tough job market and did not want competition from blacks.

"If the business community created and perpetuated slavery in this country in the interest of commerce and profit, we must then ask ourselves what moral obligation that imposes on us now."
#######

Read the whole thing, we dare you . . . There's a completely unworkable solution offered that will bring about American racial harmony along with a subtle glimpse at the many indignities that public relations professionals must endure every day.

You decide . . .

George Floyd was fondly remembered Tuesday as “Big Floyd” — a father and brother, athlete and neighborhood mentor.


They apparently edited out or didn't know much about his sleazy past)

If Floyd had been white media wouldn't have even touched it and there wouldn't have been a peep. No protests or riots.

HaHaHa during and after WW 1 the Ku Klux Klan were democrats. And when this last riot tore down statutes the BLM klan was saying there was no slavery. After all they destroyed that part of history and by voting democrat they will repeat it. Gone Baby!

Actually, the south was mostly Democrats until LBJ pushed through the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Since party affiliation is not an inherited trait, southern racist Democrats overnight became southern racist Republicans. Nixon used dog whistles to bring northern Republicans into the fold.

The Republican party has come a long way since Lincoln.

You may now return to Fox News for further talking points.

If he was head of the police board, he had a chance to fix things.

Things don't look fixed, do they?

Jeff Simon is managing partner of Husch Blackwell’s Kansas City office. He's also a defender of Fortune 500 companies, helping them squash the working poor, when seeking justice in cases involving healthcare, employee retirement income, consumer protection, etc.

He's made a career standing directly opposed to the common working man and woman. He lives a privileged life with a home off Ward Parkway and plenty of disposable income for a cushy life. Mr. Simon and his wife are Democrats, of course, that's why he's penned this article dragging his firm into the BLM anti-White melee currently swirling throughout society. It's now become a race to see which White-led organizations will resist falling upon their knees and begging forgiveness for their hereditary skin color.

Please note Mr. Simon's positive reference to Congressman Carwash's wife, Dianne Cleaver, and her work with the Urban Neighborhood Initiative. Though no word at all on both Cleavers defaulting on an SBA loan which they both personally guaranteed, and never repaid despite a final court judgment ruling against them. Doesn't Mr. Simon respect the court of law and the judges which preside over them?

Jeff Simon is among the worst type of Democrat, namely the wealthy White business class who routinely use and abuse people of color for their own power and enrichment.

He forgot to add that many trade unions were formed to shut out black men who were moving north to take jobs that the unions wanted to reserve for whites. Of course when the history of discrimination is rehashed they conveniently omit any reference to union participation.

These types of people may be hard to understand, but one can rest assured that they're all about themselves.
