KANSAS CITY SMALL BIZ FEARS BACKLASH OVER BLACK LIVES MATTER MURALS!!!



Street level politics sparks fear amongst a growing number of Kansas City small biz operators who are concerned about reactions to an upcoming controversial art project launched with the endorsement of mayor & council.

To wit and as the mural project prepares to start painting very soon . . .

MORE SMALL LOCAL BIZ OWNERS WORRY THAT BLM SIGNAGE WILL DETER CUSTOMERS FROM KANSAS CITY!!!

Here's the best note sent our way over the past week . . .

"Does the city really know what it's doing with these murals? I understand that the politics benefits them and I don't totally disagree with public art or even BLM for that matter. But nobody asked me about painting what's tantamount to a huge political ad on the street near my place. 

Nobody bothered to ask business owners how they felt about it or the potential pitfalls. Why not? Neither the mayor nor the council can predict what's going to happen before the election and these murals could be the focal point of more protest or even worse trouble. That's the last thing we need, we're barely surviving as it is . . . Not to mention people who are going to be turned off by what they think is all of KCMO endorsing BLM. Those folks, and there are a lot of them, might skip a visit, boycott or refuse to spend any money in Kansas City. 

Just wanted to let you know that this decision was done without the input of nearby employers and workers whatsoever. It's a shame that our mayor and the council keep putting small business last."

Special thanks to a few local biz people and workers who have sent messages our way about this issue. Moreover, it's surprising to realize how many folks don't know how to contact Mayor & other elected officials or that the 4th District is represented by council members are Katheryn Shields & Eric Bunch - Both of whom enthusiastically endorsed this project.

Hey Now, there's no use complaining. The murals are on their way and if you're afraid of back lash. Just imagine the BLACK LASH you're going to get by going back on your word.

Deal with it buddy or move your business to Buckner.

Good luck, buddy!

I've heard the same thing from Brookside. Nobody wants to be the site for the next round of "mostly peaceful" protests that shut down everyone's shops for two weeks.

I stated this month's ago. And Kansas City's don't understand .THE Conservatives and Independents are the ones keeping this economy going not the rioters. You Loose your visitors and you will loose your City. I have been to Many communities in Kansas and Missouri There Business is doing OK.BECAUSE they don't publicize .Groups that,that causes City's to be Destroyed.

^^and yet there haven't been any "riots" here in over 3 months and there really was only minimal property damage. Hugh. Your narrative is false. Weird.

Gee no kidding what exactly did they think people were going to do? Flock to a racist rioting area to do business.

BTW did you paint BLM on the areas that have blood shed over it for the black people's freedom by the Republicans. You're so welcome for your freedom! slap us in the face again why don't you and I'm sure you will.

C'mon, Killa Shitty, look at the upside to having these big ol' Burn Loot Murder street murals. Alot less traffic means those dang potholes won't be getting as deep and wide this winter, y'all.

Anonymous said...

You mean to say that there are still some small businesses still operating in KCMO?
Someone call smiley selfies Lucas and Dr. Rex and shut them down!
They're nothing but blood sucking capitalists and KCMO is working hard to become the most woke little town in the country.
More protests, money for places like 18th and Vine, kneeling on demand, and endless virtue signaling like these "murals".
The fact that the vast majority of the public has been sick and tired of this crap for well over a couple months now doesn't count.
After all, they're just residents and taxpayers.

Anonymous said...

Whether for fear or principle, many customers will avoid these businesses and neighborhoods in favor of places that are safe and that don’t flaunt political opinions. Spend your money where common sense prevails.

I'm surprised not all Americans want murals glorifying a Marxist political organization that wants to destroy the nuclear family of having a mother and father, no private property, no prisons and no capitalism. How odd.

Super Dave said...

Something such as street murals should be voted on by the public. Businesses should have a right to a say in the matter. Remember it's them paying the taxes not the painters.

Is 18th and vine getting a mural? How about prospect?

Small business failure is important to BLM, Antifa, the City Council and Mayor.

The business owners are justified in their frustrations.

The local BLM group's FB page (KC Shade) notes this, “We have been granted Black Life Matter Street Murals With the permit and Five different Locations in Kansas City, which will all be painted the same day. ✊🏾 Most of the locations are hot spots to where racism begins or exist still. So Come out September 5th. ( Choose a location you would love to go to on September, 5th. )

SCHEDULE FOR SATURDAY IS AS FOLLOWS according to KC Art on the Block Events FB page
Time
- Street barricades arrive: 6:00am
- Mural prep and chalking: 7:00am - 11:00am
- Community participation event: 11:00am - 4:00pm

Locations
- 10th & Baltimore
- 18th & Vine
- 31st & Troost
- 63rd & Brookside Blvd.
- 63rd & Troost

Get this...KC will be (to my knowledge) the only city in America to have more than one street defiled by BLM.I've come to the conclusion that they want to be the #BLMMeToo and #WeHaveMoreBLMstreetartthanyou (I realize that is a long hashtag).

As I have posted before the big boys and girls from BLM and Antifa did not stop in KC to help out the effort. Instead, they flew to DC to help out there.

This is so amusing.

The BLM and their allies want national attention and nobody cares. hahahahaha

If you are white and were not racist prior to the riots over a drug addicted felon who stuck a gun in a pregnant woman's stomach - ok.

But now, if you are not hoping to join a militia and defend your family, neighbors, city and state from the BLM/AntiFa scum that rule over us all with the help of the media and Democrats, then you are either dumb as one of the bricks they (BLM/AntiFa) throw at cops and business', or, you are sucking at the trough like the DNC scum that is currently ruining this country.

Just think, if you fucking racists just weren't so racist no one would feel the need to paint large yellow signs on streets to make sure you fucking understand.

Anonymous said...

@8:57, if as you say we are all equal under the law, then why don't we have the same right to speak out that you do?
And why don't we have the right to object to what appears to be pandering to less than a third o the City's population?
If three people are choosing a lunch spot, why does only one of them have the right to make decisions for all?

Equality means exactly what it means, and special treatment is innately unequal. To argue that special treatment is "owed" or "deserved" to make up for past wrongs is absurd, it can never do so. And such "special" treatment is in and of itself a "wrong" inflicted on the majority.

I am afraid that there exists a Minority that is eventually going to have to settle for what every other minority in this Country does, MERE EQUALITY!

9:52pm Dude, I am WHITE. Look at it like 9:48pm (which is me! Ha!) and that should do the trick. To be this upset about people just wanting you to be able to freely say that YES YOUR LIFE MATTERS, not more than mine, just equally or striving toward lives mattering as equally as possible. You are acting like that is too much, and I have to call bullshit. You can strive for that, you really can.

I wrote: Dude, I just had lunch with my parents today.

You inferred:
We ate out (we ate sandwiches at their kitchen table)
I wasn't working (I did work today, I went there for lunch)
They are together still (ok this is true, but maybe not assumable these days)

So go fuck yourself with your bullshit theory about bias that you seem to think is your best way to dismiss any chance that you might just be a fucking asshole who no one likes and you like feeling superior to black people.

Nobody is superior based on race and skin color.. However, cultures can be superior to one another.
