Of course she would, she is not smart enough to tackle items that require some degree of intelligence.

If Kansas City is going to remove ALL Racist locations on public property, then 18th & Vine is closed, Cleaver Parkway has to be renamed, The Watkins Freeway has be changed, Chavez Boulevard goes, and any other public facility has to be renamed as well.

Racial bias is racial bias, regardless of tone or hue.

Speaking of money, how much will this fiasco take away from the things we really need done around here like, streets, bridges, water and sewers, more police you know, the things they’ve abandoned long ago for a bright shiny new downtown and a new airport we didn’t need?

Remember, just removing the Paseo signs and putting up mlk cost us almost $100,000. Does it cost that much to put back up the Paseo signs? They’re talking tens of millions of dollars to do everything they’re talking about.

Fix the damn streets and everything else first dipshits.

The council woman lacks the intelligence to realize that history is written after it happens. It never goes away. As a white person I have never thought that slavery was OK in any aspect. But in the time 155-400 years ago it was a world-wide practice. It was not right but it was the "way of the world". It was black people selling other black people into slavery from Africa. It was in Europe, America, India, and most of the world that was developed at the time. Let us never repeat that to even one person, but, it was true that it existed. I have traced my family tree back to the 1500's in France, we were never slave owners but until the 1880's we were farmers with a lot of children and they had big families to work on the farm. When we came to America we settled in Ohio and in the early 1900's some migrated to St. Louis and Kansas City. We fought in the Civil War for the North. We supported your freedom and we support that today. But you don't need to tear down every monument or rename things you find offensive today that were normal back then. It is time to be better and eliminate hatred not statues or plaques, or gardens or names of people that in their times were good people. The times were different, we have grown and learned. Give it a chance to be better.

Well said, @11:15, but if Blacks buy into the American Culture, who will their "oppressors" be?

Remember you can't be a "Professional Victim" without oppression, and how else could Gwen Grant or any of the other Black Leaders earn a living?

At least use pieces of the statues to fill the potholes.

Potholes have been left unattended for several years but the Kansas City Public Works Department was able to remove the J.C. Nichols plague on his donated fountain within 24 hours.

Funny how the Kansas City racist Public Works Department can move quickly when it comes to destroying something a white man built.

12:03 I had one in my neighborhood we would call about once a month for...... 6 years, yes 6 years then one day about two months ago it mysteriously got repaired, the funny thing is it wasn’t the city that did it. Our neighbors did it.

Racist ? according to what we know about be people ? what others tell us about people or the side people present vs. their true self? Good luck picking which statue is Racist and which statue is not . When Oprah said some white people need to die . Was that Racist ? Was it Racist when that black stalker killed that white woman in Kc last weekend ? Or is it just Racist when George Floyd died ? Have we elected a Racist determination panel to judge who is not Racist ? Have they been completely vetted under a lie detector? Because that is the only way you are going to know who is racist and who is not. about 99.999 % of the population is racist. Be it a woman, black, gay, Hispanic , white old NRA member or handicapped tranny half white the other half you pick .

make recommendations to the City Council for removal of monuments of those “that held slaves, promoted racism or participated in the oppression and dehumanization of others,”


She doesn't believe white people are basically slaves and haven't been oppressed and dehumanized?
