TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY ARGUMENT FOR REPARATIONS!!!

A fascinating treatise on the history of local racism and the legacy of slavery encourages voters to support sketchy and EXPENSIVE urban renewal projects that NEVER live up too expectations or promises. Even worse, these projects typically only enrich a few professionals and power players and almost always FAIL to improve life for communities confronting economic challenges.

There is nothing stopping local leaders from addressing their community's legacy of racial injustice. Here is a credible plan for getting started.

Slavery was awful. But it doesn't mean that I should give money to all of my councilman's friends.

When are we going to get reparations for General Order #11?

What about the $20 trillion in welfare over the years? That doesn’t count?

The fact blacks have been on welfare since LBJ, hasn’t helped them. Many are welfare dependent and, unfortunately will always be.

The 1st black slave was sold by a black man to a black man.

Factor in all the TAX money now that goes to just black causes then add that up for entire length of those black causes has been in effect (years decades) and bam suddenly we the US tax payer has paid more money then reparations to black causes ALREADY. NO MORE HELP HOMEBOYS GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER LIKE EVERY OTHER RACE IN THE US.

Where do I sign up for reparations from the blacks?

Reparations? Please refer to the preceding story about how KCMO is so near bankruptcy. Under the circumstances asking for reparations is like asking the homeless beggar for a handout.

So, people who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves? And, they want people held responsible for things that happened before they were born? Yet those same people are not being held responsible for what they are doing right now? Give be a break with the BS!

Kammie Harris is a descendant of slave owners, let’s start with her!

Oferr reparations IF AND WHEN blacks stop shooting blacks! Otherwise forget it!

Fuck reparations. Period. Blacks would fuck up an anvil. No amount of money would make a damned bit of difference.


Businesses they ruined are the ones deserving reparations.

I didn't have slaves. My family didn't profit off of slaves. Current Blacks alive were not slaves. Are they also wanting to pay damages to my family for all the wrongs done to them ? Many of my extended family ( non black ) have gotten settlements for another minority status and history. Low life and no pride cousins. Get some balls and pride. I wouldn't cash a free cheese check for something that I didn't experience, nor should anyone else. Because almost all families have seen terrible. But Rats eat cheese instead of make their own way. If you have your life in line you don't need another person to paddle your canoe.

Talk about a shitty return on your investment

Mr. Charles Marohn is more than welcome to write the first check from his own account. Make sure you use lots of commas and zeros CHAZ! I'm sure many other white guilt-ridden libtards will follow your lead! 😏

You mean to tell me LBJ freebies all these years were not enough? Now more? These people have NAACP and affirmative action they get hired over someone who is more qualified and they want reparations??? Do it and see what happens!

I am actually for it, if there is a return on investment.

Here is the return.

An end to ALL quotas, Affirmative Action, set asides, legislation that favors minorities etc. special 250 points off your SATs to get into college let the white cream rise to the top and after that, good luck.

They shut the fuck up about slavery.

Now, let the chips fall where they may and guess what - you have to support yourself forever, no money for anything.

It is a known fact that Kunte Kunte was related to the first black prostitute. Her name was Renta Kunte.

Reparations and a one way ticket to their homeland if accepted, and Europeans who claim to be American.

Fuck "reparations". See what happens when white america see's the incalculable damage it does to the economy and their childrens futures. The Afro's will never stop blaming it on whites but too many of them can't cut it. Afro's have a lower IQ than other racial groups. Significantly lower. Look at Africa. Do you see a well governed continent? No. It's just another step towards a race war.

Reparations should be a one way ticket to Africa and maybe a few weapons. They can either take Liberia and make it their country or get slaughtered trying. Either way good riddance

KCMO doesn't have two dimes in the whole fucking city. For reparations you will have to tax me, to tax me you will have to catch me, and since I'm a Kansan you can't - I have no MO/KCMO tax liability, and never will for reasons in this article.

Here's a novel idea instead of reparations; why don't you roll up your sleeves hit the books, study, get good grades, stay away from drugs, get a job, work your ass off and you will move up the career ladder. Just like everyone else has to do.

Corporations don't care about skin color; only profits. If you are smart and a hard worker they will hire you and reward you up the career ladder.

REPARATIONS IN KCMO?

Because...what KC really needs is a Liberal White male from Minnesota telling them how to further bankrupt their city!
