New effort begins to name Kansas City street after King

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A civil rights organization has restarted an effort to name a major thoroughfare in Kansas City after Martin Luther King Jr., suggesting that three intersecting major routes through parts of the city be renamed after the civil rights icon. Kansas City is one of the largest cities in the U.S.

He watched another preacher force a women to have sex in a hotel room while he watched and laughed and told her what to do. Something a lot worse that anything JC Nichols ever did.

He had a dream.

Wait a second.. He was never even here? Did we not matter? Once Again ... Black People do not need leaders, organizations, street signs, or anything else..... They are capable adults and need to be treated like adults...Did black people thrive under 8 years of a black president ?? Did their life get worse under Trump? I’m trying to understand why a Black Person would be dumb enough to vote for Dems....

Let’s be clear... a handful, namely one Vernon Howard, believes he has some higher moral authority to dictate what Black children should consider honorable. He’s alone is pushing this street name and its not going to make a bit of difference. The whole notion that he thinks Black people should worship King is in and of itself racists against Black people. I hope Parks & Rec putT A STOP TO IT. If the reason ain’t right, then throw the whole damn idea in the trash. MLK just isn’t relevant any more... neither are Black pastors, as a whole.

what a bunch of pointless bitching.

It's going to be in a part of town you people NEVER visit. Why should you care? Just shows how racist some of the people read this blog are. Really dumb comments.

You should be ashamed.

Let’s make one thing clear, this is attempt number five ok. The cleave lost trying to change prospect into mlk back in the 70’s, reed lost trying to same thing on prospect, we all know about the Paseo and parks and rec tried to change jc Nichols to mlk and that got shot down. Speaking of parks and rec, so this is attempt number five and by the way, they said the name change will cost them $250,000. How does it cost that much when the signs are already made?

10:13 don’t forget the main culprit in this whole fiasco, the worthless fake rev the cleave.

I agree. Just rename a street somewhere so the tourists know exactly where not to go, unless they are in town to buy crack, get some hookers, and get shot.

@7:36,
We can't help noticing that you have just as much time available to spew your petty little hatred and pissy little whining on this site as any of those you criticize!

Yet you call others "a busted, broken, bitter, bitch"!
What a laugh!

Not east of Troost, just rename Troost to MLK Blvd and be done with it. Maybe the name change will make the hookers and dope dealers rethink their errant ways and reform. Muhahahaha! I kill myself sometimes! That is too funny.
