Kansas City Hipsters Pretend That Social Justice Merch Will Save Independence Center

It would be nice if retail could work . . . The local economy could use the help and this town needs the jobs. Sadly, even a "woke" sales pitch is unlikely to bring people back to the mall even after the pandemic has passed.

Here's hoping otherwise . . .

Black-owned Closet Chemistry opening this weekend at Independence Mall

While sitting at home due to the pandemic, Carl and Sheena Brown thought about how they could achieve the American Dream. They wanted to take a gamble by starting their own business and leaving their safe jobs behind. The partners decided to open up a clothing store, but take this new endeavor a step further.

I sincerely do wish their venture well. Best of success to them.

I do feel however that the store is an outlandish mismatch for the area, and it speaks to the desperation of the Mall to fill an empty space at any cost.

It may be time to raze Independence Center and redevelop that very valuable "corner" into strip shopping, sport complexes, upscale living and restaurants.

All black owned businesses do is bring trouble, those people that are attracted to that kind of business are dope dealers, thugs and trash.

Hey, drug dealers and thugs and EBT parasites need some retail action. The last mall the blacks had was African Springs (I mean Indian Springs), and it became ground zero for shootings, robberies, and shoplifting. It is now an empty field - which is what the blacks turn every mall into if you let them.

Oh lets make sure you mention black owned 50 million times. Well I got news for ya the relationship between black and white is over. So they had better depend only on blacks.

"...black owned 50 million times."

"Black owned" has been exploited and beaten to death to infinity at this point.

If you have a well-tended store, reasonably priced items and have a nice staff, you have loyal customers. We don't give a flyin' flip if you're black, white, yellow, whatever. Your race doesn't even enter our minds.

But the minute you start proselytizing with that ridiculous "black owned" garbage, our backs are turned and we're out the door for keeps.
