Kansas City J.C. Nichols Postscript



Two perspectives on the fountain drama amid MILLIONS in damages and will result in more political slap-fighting in the very near future . . .

A Sad Day in KC: A Hollow Gesture from KC Park Board

By Joe Sweeney "I personally believe history should be preserved, irrespective of what are considered personal flaws of someone nearly a century after the fact." It's been an interesting era in Kansas City and it's felt more like the 1960s than nearly 60 years after.

With Nichols' name scrapped, Parks Board to shift focus to honoring MLK Jr. in KC

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Plaques honoring J.C. Nichols at the fountain near the Country Club Plaza are now gone. The city removed them the day after the Kansas City Parks Board unanimously agreed to remove the controversial developer's name from the fountain and parkway beside it.

MLK hated Homosexuals. So that would be a great place to honor it. Now put on your Von Dutch hats and report to your scam protests without 5 seconds of research or rational questioning.

This was a racist act of domestic terrorism forced down your throat without a vote again just like they did to the Paseo. If you people in KC sit back and take this you are cowards. Nichols built the Plaza too and he is everywhere in KC what are you going to do about that? To erase Nichols you will have to tear the Plaza down including the fountain. Isn't it funny how blacks can be racist but whites can't????

BLM should not want to honor MLK Jr. They have been quite clear that what counts is the color of your skin not the content of your character.

White man builds a beautiful iconic outdoor shopping center and fountain.

Envious black man destroys it.

Pretty much sums up America these days.

Funny how the Kansas City Public Works department cannot fill a pothole or remove snow but they sure can tear down a monument in a hurry.

Good work Kansas City Public Works Department employees. Take the afternoon off like you always do.
