TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! CONTROVERSIAL KANSAS CITY BLACK LIVES MATTER MURALS ALREADY FADING!!!



For our early morning Sunday readers one of our most KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS offers a practical perspecrive on our street level culture war.

To wit . . .

THE PAINT ON KANSAS CITY BLM MURALS HAVE QUICKLY STARTED TO FADE!!!

Here's the story, the photo confirmation and a sign that a touchup might soon be in order . . .

"TKC, taking a walk through Brookside this morning, I noticed that traffic is already wearing off the murals where people slow down and accelerate through the Meyer intersection. I know that it was said that they were going to use some kind of sealant on them to protect them, but if there is anything it is not adding much more than a sheen. So far the damage is modest, but I assume after an entire winter in Kansas City that the murals are all going to be pretty roughed up." 

"Some of the more excitable people on this blog might want to calm down. These things are not going to survive. It’s kind of a pity, because so much effort went into them. However the money could’ve been better spent. Thought I would pass a couple photos along to you."

Everything fades.

But also, climate change is the result of systemic racism.

So this means that they'll probably need some (more) city hall money.

"Ruffed up"? I hadn't considered the idea that dogs were peeing on them.

This was a volunteer effort, I'm sure there are a lot of people who would be more than willing to do the maintenance. Kansas City has more people who want to help create rather than just criticize and hate.

Anonymous said...

^^^ A nice thought, even if it's not at all true.

Well the people who everyone thinks is criticizing and hating are the BLM people. These people have no business painting the streets with HATE slogans such as BLM. BLM have been out killing and burning down cities not to mention they are saying no one else's life matters and I would say that's HATE on their part.
How many white people have been killed by black people but you don't see white people painting racist slogans on the streets. And it's the other way around with the police. The police have been shot and killed by black people but no one wants to talk about that. To say that anyone who disagrees with BLM is critical and hateful is just ignorant. BLM is racism at it's worst form and a phony victim game no one wants shoved down their throat. Grow Up.

5:35 need more police to block the streets to repaint/maintain or are volunteers going to run between cars or work at night?

BLM itself is dying and fading. They had a nice run and got to destroy property and steal and yell at cops, but it’s about over with. BLM is based on lies and just like paint, won’t last. Nothing changed, BLM accomplished nothing.

We're there any Burn Loot Murder protests in Briarcliff last night as reported earlier in week? Skid marks on the BLM "artwork" did not go down well with some people (not me).

BLM destroyed a lot of property. BLM killed a lot of people. BLM created more racial tension than this country has known since the days of Jim Crow. Good job, BLM. May you quickly fade away.

Anonymous said...

Other Things Fading:

1. Biden’s Campaign
2. Black support for Biden (“you ain’t Black if you don’t vote for me”)
3. Biden’s memory
4. Biden’s campaign slogan (does he have one?) (maybe borrow 1 of the 500 Hillary had)
5. Biden’s supply of Depends

The artist murals make me happy to wake up in KC because KC is a woke city. The murals have brought people together. It will be sad when they fade but that is what happens to art when it is not stored in a museum. Maybe there is a way to do that.

There is no need to break the law and vandalize these murals because they are art. Maybe you don't think so, but I have read that the Supreme Court has said that art is in the opinion of the beholder.

One thing I do feel is wrong is disallowing other murals for other groups. Everyone that is not trying to hate or hurt other people should have equal rights to a mural.

Peace out KC.

We could all use a little maintenance and touch up. No big deal keeping the murals fresh if that's what people want to do.

Super Dave said...

Why does this not surprise me. First off you don't just apply any ole paint onto an asphalt service and think it will last much less stick properly. Unless the areas were properly treated and cleaned first it isn't going to stick using the good stuff. More half ass leadership from city hall. Another fail from 12th and Oak.

VOCs love VOCs. Simple chemistry. The sealer was put on too soon before the paint cured 100%. Gassing out into street. Poor dumb babies.

Thanks all. This is great info on cleanup and sealers and what not. The next round of murals will be much more durable.

5:37 getting paid $12,000 a mural is not a volunteer effort. Do you people even follow along or remember anything from yesterday? I know I know, asking you to remember something from two weeks ago is basically asking for a miracle I guess. No wonder the dimwit party is so fucked up, you people can’t remember the lies from yesterday they told you, you just go by what they say on Twitter right now and not from What they tell the news media.

After all, if twitter says so, it must be true!

In the end, BLM is still a radical Marxist anti-American organization that wants to get rid of all ownership of private property, all prisons, capitalism, and the nuclear family of having a father and mother raise a child. These are just a few of their crazy ideas, but yet the city government was dumb enough to allow these murals to be painted on public streets.

Silvestor orgalthorp said...

Just go to the “walk away” campaign site on Facebook and read the thousands of stories of people who are leaving the democrat party because of all the BLM bullshit
Start your day with that, if you have an open mind

The obvious solution is to furlough more city employees, buy more paint, hire more "volunteers" and do it incorrectly again. It's the Kansas Shitty way! 😏

P.S. I TOL' YA SO!!! Called this one before the paint was even dry! 🤣

The unprofessional job that was done on the political slogans a/k/a "murals" is an example of why minorities need public contract set-asides. They do such bad work that no one would hire them as subcontractors unless compelled to do so.

BLM should have hired J.C. Nichols.

J.C. Nichols would have done a quality job with the BLM murals.

His quality work lasts for decades.

J.C. would have also trimed the murals in red line. They would have really popped!

My comment is it is stupid to do a lot of elective asphalt painting bc duh the paint fades and looks bad. Increases maintenance costs. Look at awful green paint on Grand for an example.

1:58 - Bahahahahaha

What labor ? Going to the mailbox to collect their welfare checks?

What blood ? Blacks were such cowards they cut and run during WWII and Korean War whereby they were pulled off the front lines to drive trucks as they endangered the other troops by dropping their guns and running off.

600,000 Union white soldiers shed blood freeing slaves during the Civil War which is now never acknowledged.

BLM and the Media are a bunch of Marxist liars with no reality. Your lies don't hold up when one sees and experiences first hand what BLM and the Marxist Democrat Party are all about.

Keep spinning and believing those fairy tales 1:58 but no one else is buying it except your fellow indoctrinated Marxists.

If you learned that shit from College Professors; those coward douchebags hid in college and never served in the military or witnessed war first hand.

Anonymous said...

Hey 1:58 - hate to put a dent in your fairy tale but:

When we used to bid on public contracts; we had to include a minority firm in the bidding process as a partner.

The minority firm would never show up to do the work or fuck up what they did do so we would just tell them to stay home and mailed them their % dollars of the contract work. Honest truth and sad.

If you are going to support BLM with stupid comments, at least use correct English.

It should be "don't", not doesn't.

That way folks won't immediately know how dumb you are.

Yes, they were all volunteers doing the painting. Community orgs and just people who wanted to help. Haters going to hate. You’re point of view is obsolete...

Anonymous said...

And I would bet NONE of that sad small group live in that neighborhood. So much for engaging the community's support. I do not believe people should be treated differently because of how they look, where they are from, how they may worship, etc. People are treated differently because of their hate-filled racist rhetoric, their violent actions, and their desire to be perpetual victims. Sad but very true. Mural painting, dance parties, picnics, protests (both "peaceful" and otherwise), and all the other nonsense we've witnessed these past few months do nothing. Serious, and many times difficult, conversations with rationale participants who do not have personal agendas is what will start any kind of a change.

Whites in general benefited economically from a slave based economy and white-only privileges even if they didn't own slaves. That was a long time ago, but the property ownership was passed thru generations.

Blacks were excluded from trades and unions by whites.

They travelled North when jobs were available in manufacturing.

It gets complicated, but the whole black prejudice is about keeping American labor costs low by creating a permanent underclass.

This is why migrants pick crops in the USA without benefits.

"It gets complicated, but the whole black prejudice is about keeping American labor costs low by creating a permanent underclass."

It gets "complicated" because the Marxist Democrats and BLM cannot keep their lies and make-believe fictional stories straight.

Tens of millions of poor whites, poor Hispanics, poor Asians have worked their way out of poverty. It takes hard work to do so while Blacks constantly bitch and do nothing but ask for handouts. Have some pride in yourself loser.
