Sorry to give a gut reaction but here goes . . .
KANSAS CITY DOESN'T OWE YOU ANYTHING!!!
This is a town where EVERYONE is forced to create their own opportunities, fight for their career and withstand constant challenges.
There are some really nice people here who will help but KC and every other place in the world can only tolerate so much whining.
Moreover, assigning a racial component to this screed is unfair because most Black people in this town are too busy hustling like everyone else to take time out of their day to pen a "poor me" polemic.
We wish this lady good luck but warn that Atlanta is every bit as tough as Kansas City. She'll be missed, but somehow, Kansas City will survive without her.
Check local public radio not doing this woman any favors by promoting her pity party:
Grandview native Olivia Williams has her sights set on Atlanta after graduation, because she feels it's more welcoming to young Black women like her. She wrote about it in a blog post for the Kauffman Foundation, and detailed three steps Kansas City needs to take to make itself a place she'll want to stay.
