KC Parks Board to hear new proposal to name east-west thoroughfare after MLK Jr.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The push to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's legacy in Kanas City is moving along, as the Board of Parks and Recreation Commissioners will soon hear a new proposal. Ronald Lindsay, senior pastor at Concord Fortress of Hope, never had the privilege of meeting King, but he understands the role [...]

Gregory Blvd would be the ideal candidate.
While a lot of Greg’s may have peaceful protests while looting and threatening to defund Mayor 10-10-10’s office, their average age has to be 75 or 80.

To help with the protests - the crazies (liberals and AOC-worshippers along with any fake-media types) should plan to join and take on the “gregories” and can maybe stop them by threatening to take away their Geritols...and adult Depends.

Mayor 10-10-10 has another mess on his hands. Perhaps the fumbling-dunce-looter-joining-park-in-and-drink-in-Kansas-parking-lot Mayor 10-10-10 has another great plan that rivals his brilliant 10-10-10 plan... but I doubt it.

He chooses to focus on just over a hundred Covad deaths that affected old people while doing very little about his own approaching 200 homacides. I guess he is in denial of or missed the grade school
Lesson called “ survival of the fittest” or perhaps he is taking it to a new level of policing the high high high KC nationally renowned MURDER RATE.

Good luck Mayor 10-10-10. If the past is any snapshot- you will need it.

tear up the town, get a street named after your god. The fag hater. makes sense to you.

Calm down @5:36, we'll name a street after YOUR God too!

Probably a one block long cul de sac south of 118th, that we'll call "Trump the Idiot Way".

How about naming something after James Earl Ray? Like maybe a shooting range in Swope Park?

Bandit said...

Rename one of the streets that the police like to run DUI enforcement on after Q Ball.

If MLK were alive today would he be caught up in the "me too" movement?

If this idea is so popular, why is it undisclosed? I am amazed at how resistant to the voice of the people this council is.

East-West street makes sense...that is the direction from which the free shit army will come to loot (sorry, new term is peaceful protest).

Brace for impact Country Club and Mission Hills, it is only a matter of time.

Super Dave said...

I agree 8:08 why all the secrecy about it. I'm guessing the new pick will enrage the masses more than the last pick. How about renaming one of the streets around the park named after King? I mean come on he never set foot in Kansas City Mo and truth be known King would denounce BLM I bet as being detrimental to the black race.

The city should put that street in some part of the city they don't want tourists.

Anonymous said...

Why are they still talking about this? They don't have the money for it!! (see above story)

Have they finished paying for or broke even on the last failed attempt?

8:08 AM nailed it.

The only reason this is an issue that won't die is because of the racism in KC brought to you by your hate filled mayor. Let him go, he has enough rope and he will hang himself. Move on there is always OP and other cities that can accommodate normal people. The only thing is it's sad that some piece of shit like Lucas had to come in and ruin our city. The proof is in the pudding all black people do is destroy. Hate right back at ya.

If any street is to be renamed, make it 18th Street.

It is a lie that these groups want to honor MLK Jr. If they did, they would agree with him that the content of one's character is more important than the color of one's skin. Instead, BLM, the Urban League and others preach the opposite. They just want to throw their weight around and remind their puppet politicians who really pulls their strings.

Does the city assume everyone wants an MLK Boulevard? What's next, Black Lives Matter Avenue?

I agree 0920.
And when KCMO was taking suggestions (a couple months ago) I put that down. Let's hope!

They (blacks) only know MLK was a famous black man who was assassinated. They have no idea of his message. They think his message was the same as Malcom X.

Anonymous said...

How about 75th Street? That runs right to Prairie Village, and would pressure the JoCo folks to continue the street name through PV, OP, etc.

Anonymous said...

Omg that is so true lmfao

Anonymous said...

10:57, that is a great idea for metro solidarity. And 75th runs a LONG way in both directions.

More flag-planting.

Get a straight jacket said...

Nope. Brought to you bu fake, Black Baptist Preachers with little else to do. The people already decided. No on MLK. Looking for a different result while doing the exact same thing... insanity. Admitted. There is overwhelming mental health issues among the Black religious.

Get your hand outta my pocket said...

No. Us Blacks don't think his message was the same as Brother Malcolm. You Whites are misguided in all things related to anything but your own culture... and loud about it. StFU

Mo Rage said...


63rd Street.

Perfect.

Charles Whitman said...

Oh? You can't even agree on what BLM means.
Maybe some of you know the difference between "Brother" Malcolm and MLK, but I'm certain, and still insist, that most of you don't know the difference between the two.
You StFU.

Simple solution: find the east-west street with the most shootings within a block north or south of the street. Name that street after MLK Jr. That will keep it authentic.

THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON
by Rudyard Kipling


It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy -- willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

I it because MLK was a homo hater that 5:40 am wanted the previous person to " calm down" or was it because he is a down low bro ? the world will never know. Crunch.
