LOCAL BLACK COALITION DISCOURAGES NBA RAPTORS FROM KANSAS CITY STAY AMID BLACK LIVES MATTER ALLEGATIONS OF 'EXTREME HOSTILITY' FROM POLICE!!!

Kansas City urban opposition has emerged against a desperately desired/needed pro sports effort that has enjoyed a great deal of hype.

To wit . . .

BLACK LIVES MATTER CONCERNS THREATEN TO DERAIL THE NBA RAPTORS COMING TO KANSAS CITY!!!

Check the highlight in a cautiously worded report . . .

“There are some issues which supersede fun and economic interests. The protection of Black lives remains our most pressing concern,” was the statement in a letter to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver signed by Gwendolyn Grant, president of the Urban League of Greater Kansas City; Rodney Williams, president of the KC Chapter of the NAACP; and Vernon Howard, president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference of Kansas City.

“Although Kansas City is a great sports city, it is also a city where law enforcement has demonstrated extreme hostility and excessive force towards Black people,” the letter said.

Ironically . . .

Both hardcore right-winger and urban leaders have their concerns with NBA . . . However, conservatives ague against pro-b-ball over China biz relation concerns.

Either way, the local culture war fight continues and now confronts a broken promise to bring pro-sports to downtown KC. 

Developing . . .

NBA would be wise to avoid this town. It's not very business friendly and the fans aren't there to sustain a downtown team.

Wrong. They would be a great success and most want the team here.

Better title for you TKC: Kansas City wants China ball!

It seems unlikely that the owners and management of an NBA team is going to pay any attention to a bunch of NOBODIES who represent NO ONE as they make decisions about where the team will play.
The tired old "civil rights" organizations from the 1960s are yesterday's news and younger people even in the black community don't have any respect for or interest in them.
And what passes for local KCMO "leadership" of these groups is about as irrelevant and embarrassing as can be imagined.
Please have a letter-writing campaign to the thugs who are terrorizing and killing black neighbors and see what influence you have among your own folks.
These people never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity to make fools of themselves.

I really wish people knew when and where to fight their battles. This was a ridiculous move. You want more opportunities in the urban core yet you lamblast something like this. Do you think only the NBA will see this letter? Businesses from out of state with good paying jobs could read something like this, and reconsider the possibility of relocating their organization to KC, and look into other places.

Did 8:09 not see the ratings this year? Are you blind or just plain stupid?

The real message is the three of them wants to get paid before they offer any support.

What a petty and spiteful letter. I am no fan of Chi-com ball but trying to discourage the NBA from coming her by badmouthing the city is the act of a child, not an adult.

URBAN LEAGUE'S GWEN GRANT CHARGED WITH PERSONAL FOUL
SCLC'S VERNON HOWARD CAUGHT WHILE DOUBLE-DRIBBLING

These 2 imbecile racists can't admit to themselves that KCMO's homicide epidemic is directly attributable to the 75-80% of homicides that are committed by young black males killing other young black males.

While the crime data prove the above point, Grant and Howard conclude that the real problem is the fact that the KCPD Chief is a white man. Insanity!

Prior to our current Chief, who led the KCPD? That would be Darryl Forte, a black man. Why did Forte abruptly resign his leadership role and retire? Because the Child Victims Unit scandal was about to break, and Forte said he was retiring from law enforcement to attend law school. Is that what happened? No, Forte quickly accepted an appointment to become the Jackson County Sheriff. So, did Grant and Howard criticize Forte for abandoning the KCPD? Not to our knowledge.

This is good news.

When the NBA comes, these people should avoid going to the games and let everyone else have fun.

Thanks, bye!

Nice, two of the biggest racists to ever grace killa shitty have spoken, again, other than stealing taxpayer money, they’re still ignoring the black on black murders since for ever.

And the city just keeps on giving them money, maybe just to shut them up.

But really though, Gwen wasn’t saying a word until they threatened to cut her paycheck, now she’s on a mad black psycho bitch from hell rampage. Jesus Gwen, you don’t matter to anybody but yourself, go away now before some crazy hoodrat mutha fucka with an ak puts your skank ass down.

Gwen has marginalized herself to such a point she has become irrelevant. Every Kansas City insider has considered her nothing more than a grifter over the many years she has been around. Like some other leaders they use race as way to fund their thieving. It’s time to look at where funding should be spent and it is not to organizations who help tear Kansas City to the ground. Gwen worked hard to educate and raise awareness, and to be honest she was successful. When she works against the workers in Kansas City and our ability to earn a fair salary at these events she went way too far. She hurt our community and anyone who works with her should pay the price for trying to take money out of our family’s pockets. Our city should turn our backs on these crazies forever.

De-motivation to psyche you out.

There is honor in work, struggle, persistence and just doing your thing.

Ignore the haters!

YOU MUST READ WHAT THIS GUY said...

Like AOC pushing Amazon out of NYC, making them hire someone else's constituents for those thousands of jobs.

A different side of the same coin that sees the community revere and defend child kidnappers, pregnant police attackers (Deja), assaulters of Asian convenience stores (Michael), truants (Trevon), Fentanyl o.d.'ing counterfeiters, etc.

So why should it be surprising that KC activists will now campaign to push away jobs for their community?

KEEP YOUR CRAPPY LEADERS, BLACK KC, OR GET BETTER ONES- EITHER WAY YOU DESERVE THEM

Stupid MoFo's trying to bring NBA to KC again! Didn't work with Kansas City Kings, and that was during a growth path for the NBA. NBA is now in a shrinking spiral of fans. Next thing happening teams will be picking up games with Globetrotters to make payroll. Kings found out BB fans would rather drive to Lawrence to see real Basketball.

THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON
by Rudyard Kipling


It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy -- willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.
