Greater Kansas City Chamber Talks 'Structural Racism' But Likely Excludes So Many Tax Breaks They Enjoy

The "necessary conversations" continue in KCMO, mostly a great many people still don't have a job . . . Accordingly . . .

Here's a quick check back regarding local commentary on this ongoing community effort:

"If Kansas city's corporate and legal leaders were serious about equality they would voluntarily repay the subsidies--received in the form of taxpayer financing and artificially low property values--for the betterment of all . . ."

Keep talking so they can grab the money and run back to JoCo.

They protect and promote the most regressive tax system in the nation. If they want change then they should urge and demand the Chiefs and Royals to buy the stadiums.

The inventors and creative class in the entire world is predominately white due to intelligence. The sooner the browns relize and accept that the better off they will be. Get a job, behave and live life.

awaiting a poll with the question, "do you have confidence in american institutions?"

Structural Racism. Yeah, that must be it. Not the number of wage earners living in the same household. Not the lack of motivation to get promoted, or even keep the same job.

MaHomes receives an unbelievable multi million dollar contract, from a

multi-millionaire who inherited his money, and whose stadium, in a small

secondary market, is paid for by Jackson County denizens (suckers), who are

absolutely taken for granted by the Jackson County politicians, who just

raised real estate taxes on low and no income folks, who are expected to

always re-elect the same assholes over and over. AND THEY DO!!!! BUT GUESS

WHAT???? THEY GET FIRST CHANCE TO BUY OVERPRICED SEASON TICKETS. AIN'T

THAT JUST PEACHY?

^^Sure is asshole! I got mine. Too bad you're a broke bitch, you could've got some too, but then you would have to find some people to go with. Everybody hates you cause of dumb shit like this.

1:11 easy to call someone you disagree with names. It's harder to debate the issues. Tell us what part of 11:53's comments you disagree with. Do you think the poor should pay taxes so that Clark Hunt and Patrick Mahomes can get richer? So that Burns and Mac can make a higher profit? So that developers can build a hotel that will be in bankruptcy in a couple of years? Tell us why these are good ideas?

1:17 - of course 1:11 thinks we should make a few Rich while he lies in his own waste. He can't think for himself. Nor can he achieve anything beyond name calling on this blog.

Structural Racism is code for capitalism ... the same thing that allows Mahomes to make $400,000,000.00. Don't hate.

Quarterback-$400,000,000 = obscene. KC (Rome) is burning!

^ Nope, the Hunt family is betting on making $400,000,001 dollars off Mahomes. Don't complain when you spend $60 to park at the stadium, $15 for a soda and $120 for a Mahomes jersey or when taxpayer money is spend on the parade route for the champions to drink themselves silly (not you, the players).

Hmmm give tax breaks to business creating jobs and tax revenue..or...continue the generational expanding dependency to a subrace that has no ambition except to emulate its thug culture.

Easy choice unless you need to pander for votes.
