Kansas City Squatters Stay Winning

Here's another look at this dump of a down and the demise of local codes enforcement given that there's no cash for it during this time of plague.

Take a look at KCMO property values continuing their downward slide . . .

Residents angered by KCMO's inaction to people squatting in vacant homes

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Barbara Johnson has lived in her home on the city's east side for 56 years. Johnson, a former professor at University of Missouri-Kansas City, said the Oak Park neighborhood used to be well cared for by the upper-middle class Black people who lived there.

I see the author pulled a little sneaky. Capitalizing the B as in Black people. Had she mentioned white people I bet she'd use a lower case w. So woke 不

Yes, White people, aka out of town investors, get away with murder. They hold owners who occupy property to a highest, more oppressive standard than these so-called investors. It’s unfair and this is predominantly why these areas are referred to the ghetto. Whites know they can do nothing with their investment to the point of it being an eyesore and nuisance and no or little action is taken. That is White privilege in Kansas City.

More like bank-owned corporate privilege. Coming soon to a neighborhood near you.

Maybe Mayor 10-10-10 laid off or furloughed inspectors or enforcers.

“Furlough” is a dog whistle for “we want businesses to fail and won’t let them operate so we will lay off city employees so the have to rely on govt assistance and we get a guaranteed vote”.

He is your Mayor... KC... vote Mayor 10-10-10.... watch crime ride he joins protesters.

How about a 5% city earnings tax? Lol

Get out of KCMO. I admit I was reluctant to leave after living in KCMO for twenty-eight years. But 5 years ago moved to Johnson County and life has been much improved and so much easier. I recommend it. KCMO will continue to crumble, folks.

I am a liberal with rental properties. I let people live in some of my properties freely. I am doing my part to combat homelessness. I expect them to respect the property and keep the area neat and orderly. My tenants are essentially on a rent strike, and I respect their movement. I am losing money because money is not important to me in a nanny state where I believe the government will take care of me. I am an idiot and will be voting for Joe Biden.

She is a bigot.
"upper middle class Black people"

She might as well say, "high-toned coloreds".

She is not "woke".

The city should have an interest saving these old houses. It would be an investment to board up the houses and prevent leaks.

That's the same thing that is meant by "White people".

Remember people, this is what mayor mcdrinkerson wanted, this is his idea of a city, record murders, not supporting the police but supporting blm and antifa and vacant burned up houses in a shithole city. This is his dream. It’s up to us now to get what we want.

If you are lucky your squatters will be crack dealers who might fix up their trap house a little bit

Should I use a capital N when referring to them?

Playwright David Mamet had a famous saying, essentially: …‘in order for democrats, liberals, progressives et al to continue their illogical belief systems they have to pretend not to know a lot of things’… By pretending ‘not to know’ there is no guilt, no actual connection to conscience. Denial of truth allows easier trespass.

Maybe the women be winning to make a trade off for the rent?
