J.C. Nichols Name Forbidden In Kansas City

We can only hope this signals a greater appreciation for history among the plebs . . . Meanwhile, the link tease offers another glimpse at a social justice movement winning the fight against a racist, rich white guy who has been dead for 70 years.

Hell lets just bulldoze everything off the face of the earth that Nichols built. Maybe that will make the fucking crybaby assholes happy. Sure would put an end to all the Plaza Shopping Center a lot of Perfect Village and a good part of Brookside.

Destroy Destroy Destroy it all!

What the hell is the "Urban Land Institute"?

Is that just another of the hundreds of "gimmeanaward" facades that Architects have created so any one of them who actually gets so much as an outhouse built gets an "Major Prize" for doing so?

This is how power works. Those with a gain in power get to redact and rename. St Petersburg or Stalingrad? Bombay or Mumbai? Thailand or Siam? It's a low cost cosmetic capitulation.

The worthless scumbags who succeeded in removing his name, never built a goddamn thing themselves. Their only success in life is getting their 15 minutes of infamy. Once this shit is over, they will never be heard from again, except when seen in police body-cam coverage on the news as they clamor for more gbmnt free stuff. Tits on a boar hog.

Well we can't rename anything built by non whites because they haven't built anything. Get over it brown people without whites you would all be eating each other around camp fires and shitting in holes.

Ha ha. That would be news to the Egyptians and Sumerians. City sanitation wasn't started in Medieval Europe by a couple of white peasants sitting in a hovel and tired of shitting in pots. We know that because their shit don't stink.

Mesopotamia had clay sewage pipes 4000 BC. Look, Europeans invented a lot of stuff, so did the Chinese, Mayans, Africans, etc. If your so sure of your superiority, why make up shit about shit? Maybe crack a book and read up on who did what when?

... and African Blacks did what?

Copied other Cultures @7:40 - there isn't one damn thing anyone can point to that originated in sub-Saharan Africa!

Of course, it was Medieval Europe that eventually thrived to lead the world in nearly every human endeavor when Mayans and Sumerians were long gone.

3:56 St Petersburg was Leningrad. Stalingrad is now Volgagrad. Actually study history before quoting it
12:35 I also thought the same about the Plaza. If the shithead BLM activists don't want to see Nichols' name in the area he created it they shouldn't be allowed the pleasure of looting the Plaza. Raze it to the ground and return the area to what it the pig farm it was before Nichols bought it. After reading the article and seeing that two of his descendants support removing his name for "the good of the city" I now believe it should stand as a monument to his pussy descendants.

Don’t care at all about BLM and will always be grateful to JCN for the many wonderful things he developed in the metro. Many of the most beautiful places in the city today are there because of him.
