TKC EXCLUSIVE MUST READ!!! COUNCIL MEMBER MELISSA ROBINSON PENS REJECTED APOLOGY EXPLANATION LETTER AS MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS LEADERSHIP FAIL WORSENS!!!



Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas is losing control of the council as infighting and agenda-driven politics now threatens to delay New KCI - The biggest construction project in this town's history.

To wit . . .

FIRST ON TKC: READ COUNCIL MEMBER MELISSA ROBINSON'S LETTER WHICH THREATENS TO REIGNITE RACIAL TENSIONS AT CITY HALL!!!

The pedantic polemic tasks her colleagues with battling racism when council should be far more concerned about the rapidly dwindling supply of cash available to run this town.

Moreover . . .

- City Hall furloughs are underway.

- Historic deadly violence threatens neighborhoods.

- New KCI contract disputes could stall the billion dollar project.

- Every time it rains in KC there's a flood because of backed up sewers.

- President Trump White House coronavirus response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx has named Kansas City as a coronavirus hotspot.

Meanwhile, if we are to take this concern at face value then we must also acknowledge that activist groups, clergy and the mayor have dedicated a great deal of time and energy to the emotional well-being of a rookie council member who continues to prioritize her feelings ahead of the interests of 3rd District constituents and all of Kansas City

To be fair, here's her side of the story and a 600 word missive issued to council early this morning . . .

LETTER FROM COUNCIL MEMBER MELISSA ROBINSON REJECTING APOLOGY



Good Morning Colleagues:

It is important for me to share with each of you why I am unable to accept our colleague’s reflective statement about her actions towards me during our debate to outsource animal control.

I am a Christian. I grew up in a small Baptist church at 29th and Indiana. As a teenager and young adult, I found my purpose and worship through ushering. I loved to greet people with a smile. For decades, I took great pride in making certain that everyone was comfortable and able to share their gifts through worship each and every Sunday. The Christian faith teaches us be merciful; to share grace; to forgive and to love. I believe in these principles and do my best to live them out. My default is to immediately forgive, even when harmed, to show mercy and to make our colleague feel comfortable.

Unfortunately, that is not leadership. Leadership is about what I can do, what we can do to move toward progress. First, an apology has to recognize the harm caused and secondly the consequence has to be equal to the severity of the action. In this case, not one action but repeated unacceptable behavior. This opportunity for growth is not about improving our decorum. We have missed the mark If we feel like this is our time to only learn how to respect each other.

In this moment, in this history of the Council Class of 2023, this is our time to set the standard on how racism is tolerated among colleagues, within Council leadership and in the Council Chamber.

Let me use myself as an example, there have been several times in which I have had implicit bias relative to age. I have thought to myself and remember referencing, “Wow, these young men in the finance department are impressive to be so young.” I have also had negative thoughts about Council members who are senior to me and have (in my mind) attributed some of the things that they have said or done to their age. I have to constantly check myself when I begin down that path. As many of us know, society sets these standards such as, older people are demented, young people are naïve, African Americans have lower IQ’s, black women are angry, women are weak, etc. and, individuals within these groups that don’t fit societal constructs are deemed “exceptional”. When these biases go unchecked we have a manifestation of what happened on the Council because we begin to believe them and make decisions based on those beliefs. The apology and reflection has to recognize that the behavior and action was racist. Just as I have to acknowledge that my comments and thoughts are ageist.

The reason why racism as well as other “isms” have to be checked is because people lose their lives when we allow it to perpetuate and fester. Inaction is a deadly tool. While I personally would love to “move on” and get to the business of the City; I cannot. I will not move past this. Dismantling racism is the business of the City of Kansas City. The very outrageous acts happening to black people around the country are connected to our inability to adequately root out racism and ensure adequate repair when we behave intolerably.

I will refrain from making judgements about one’s heart. What I know for certain is the actions are racist.

It’s only when we make the recognition that growth is possible.

We all have work to do. Dismantling racism is larger than two dueling colleagues.

Dismantling racism will not be easy, but definitely worth it.

Sincerely,

Melissa Robinson
City Council Member
City of Kansas City
District 3

Lucas thinks that "leadership" is telling everybody what they want to hear, even when individuals or groups expect opposite things.
Maybe that's how teaching college works, but at some point an elected official in an executive position needs to have the guts to tell people NO.
Kneeling for mobs.
Pardoning folks who were cited for ignoring his own curfew order.
Mindlessly releasing "non-violent" offenders.
Not focusing on the real challenges of city government like streets and particularly the town's rather desperate financial condition.
He treats the job like it's just a matter of observing what's going on instead of choosing priorities and bringing some serious leadership to accomplish them.
Lucas is clearly a person with no core beliefs or values or the guts to provide any consistent direction.
A weather vane in a hurricane.
And in KCMO there are plenty of people like Robinson who provide lots of wind an hot air and very little else.
Hang on, KCMO residents!
The ride has just barely begun.

Holy Moly talk about a mess. The behavior and action wasn't racist. But as a black person Robinson feels only she has a right to make such accusations rather they are true or not. If a black person had maybe teased her a little doing the same thing would she be yelling it was racists? Starting to be very clear that Lucas is a talker but not a leader. To me Robinson's so called letter of rejection reads more like a political speech one might make who was running for office. The immaturity she speaks out about shows up very clearly in her words.

Anonymous said...

Robinson puts too many conditions on an apology. Her behavior is unchristian, unforgiving. Her revelations on ageism are designed to justify her position as an aware woke person. She puts "leadership" above healing, refuses to get on with council business.

She got the concrete contract re-examined and an apology. Is the city going to stop and hand her another kleenex every time she gets a head bob? FGS, we have murders and fiscal crisis. She needs to get over herself. Move on, there's work to be done.

Otherwise, polarization and paralysis will doom the city council. All based upon a triggered adult who is emotionally unprepared to compromise in order to actually lead. Q or Cleaver need to get her back on track.

Melissa rob an go is mentally unstable and should be removed from office. Her self esteem issues are keeping the city from doing normal business, she thinks the world should stop for her perceived hallucinations of racism behind every door.

9:12 is correct, if she truly was a Christian she would accept the unnecessary apology and move on, this is how the city clowncil continues to spread the racial divide and continue the city down the wrong path.

Her church is in the highest murder per zip code in the city why? What’s she gonna do you know, as a god fearing Christian to get the murder of her own people to stop?

The answer isn’t at the all you can eat buffet that’s for damn sure, effing race baiting pig.

It’s clear that the citizens aren’t the priority in this shithole town anymore, race, egos and self esteem issues rule the day.

Robinson on her seat with less votes than any other council person. She represents a dying district, but acts like she should have a supersized position. At the end of this term she won’t have a district to run in as hers will be north of the river. I find it very interesting though that Lucas has tried to align himself with organizations and individuals who didn’t support him, including his own pastor, but to ignore those who supported him throughout his race. Risky move by Lucas, I’m sure it’s going to be a problem for him politically. How can anyone trust him once they see how he has ignored his old supporters. Throwing old friends has become one of his favorite moves, maybe that’s why the Kansas City Star quoted someone talking about the Quinton Shuffle.

Rumors are all over the place about looking for a replacement in three years, that never happened with Sly James. He may have been a bit of a bully, but he spoke the truth and no one ever wondered where he was at on an issue, something no one can figure out with Lucas. Even his most ardent supporters have had to admit that he is not prepared for the job of mayor.

There is no doubt Robinson is strongly tied to Gwen Grant and the group that has no faith in Lucas. Several quotes and signed letters from that group display a clear disdain for Lucas and his failure to support their position. When this council Briton’s to turn on him, and it will, Lucas will find out what it’s like to be alone. He has left himself with few true friends and alienated big groups of people who were with him.

If the rumor is true that he is running for Cleaver’s seat he well may have a chance in a couple of years. As mayor he most likely is finished only one year into his term.

TOP PHOTO -- MAYOR QUAGMIRE'S QUICKSAND COUNCIL

In this episode, Christian heretic M.R. ushers in a new era for the rookie Council...self-promotional "leadership" over foundational principles like mercy, forgiveness, cooperation and love.

"My default is to immediately forgive, even when harmed, to show mercy and to make our colleague feel comfortable. Unfortunately, that is not leadership." Remember folks, this quote is from a self-described Christian.

"Dismantling racism is the business of the City of Kansas City."
Remember this quote the next time you wonder why your taxes are going higher in KCMO, the infrastructure is still failing, the homicide count hits an all-time record, the airport project is a mess, the Council keeps giving freebies to wealthy developers, a tax-subsidized downtown baseball stadium is pushed forward again, and the Council claims the sky will fall if you don't renew the 1-percent earnings tax!!!

944 nails it. The blacks are forever getting in over their heads but they would rather cut off their tongues than to admit it. Luckily for them, they have the silver bullet - claims of racism. It’s weird, because they want to be equal but then they can’t really cut it.

If Lucas does not get a handle on this and "check" Robinson (to use her own word) they might as well lock the doors to the city council chambers and wait for all their terms to expire because this environment is counterproductive and toxic. Robinson is angry, immature, and pouty and clearly does not know how to play well with others. She needs to realize having an MBA does not make you a brilliant anything and actually it's not that big a deal. She also needs to realize she was voted into office to work for the good of the city and not to pursue personal agendas. If her attitude is not addressed and she doesn't get down to working for this city then maybe she should just usher herself out the doors of city hall with a big smile since that is apparently what she is good at by her own admission.

Roberson appears to have little experience in dealing effectively with white people. This entire matter should have been handled internally and behind closed doors. Instead she has blown it up into a major deal that will destroy her ability to get any support from the council for the remainder of her term. I am black and live in the 3rd district and both of our 3rd district council members must be careful with the issue of racism because they don't seem to understand how to effectively deal with it on a professional basis.

So true! They want entitlements they actually don’t have to work for. The BLM movement is simply keeping them stupid and immature and us normal folks having less tolerance for them. African Americans have plenty of role models who are self made folks. Someone mentioned Candace Owens......look around there are many who also happy to help lift people out of lousy circumstances. Many black leaders are race baters. Al Sharpton makes his money by keeping blacks ignorant and uneducated. Jesse Jackson did the same. Until blacks follow sincere leaders who stand for something, meaningful, the cycle will continue. My patience for their self pity is over.

This is pushing for division, just as it is around the country. Democrats love to do this. It’s so easy to call someone a racist. How do they prove they’re not? How do you prove a negative?

2:42 you to admit many of the factual comments are well the truth and nothing but the truth. But Lucas so far has shied away from the truth.

Anonymous said...

3:36, you misunderstand critical race theory, which is the philosophy behind BLM. According to CRT, all whites, and some blacks, are racist. Whites who admit they are racist and actively work to further BLM are still racist but they may some day be redeemed (sounds like religion, doesn't it?). Whites who deny they are racists are the worst racists of all. Every denial makes them more racist. Also according to CRT, every social disparity in which blacks have the short end of the stick (wealth, housing, crime, education, you name it) is entirely due to racism and in no way to dysfunctional culture of the black community. Because racism has caused all their problems, equity demands that blacks be given free stuff (reparations, racial preferences in employment and education, tax benefits, use your imagination.

So don't even try to prove you're not a racist when Councilcritter Robinson calls you one. You can't, under CRT. Either ignore her or shout at her louder than she shouts at you. But do not, ever, apologize.
