No Specifics On Council Demands To End 'Systemic Racism' Within KCFD

End result . . . Elected officials spent tonight talking about a Sunday news article with deets from a case that was settled in 2014.

Here's the round-up . . .

Kansas City Council Demands Change After Fire Department Accused Of Systemic Racism And Sexism

Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas and city council members demanded change from the fire department Thursday following a report in the Kansas City Star that documented a pattern of racism and discrimination. The three-part investigation, released Sunday, chronicled numerous problems in the department, including a dearth of black firefighters, especially in leadership positions, and even a lack of women's bathrooms in some stations.

Why not end the racism of the black ass crap around town, like the black churches and the black chamber and the black riots. Shut the f up about racism it's BS the only racism is town is from black people. Get over yourselves you backwards morons.

9:26, there are Black Churches because, while Blacks were brainwashed into the Jesus Cult when they were slaves, they still were not welcome in the White Churches.

There are Black Chambers of Commerce because, while Blacks are American Citizens, they weren't welcome in the White Chambers of Commerce.

There are Black riots because first there were white riots(Tulsa & Detroit, for example).

You are the backward moron & you & your fellow storm troopers need to get over yourselves.

Any one who says there isn't systemic racism, & sexism, in the Fire Department is a god damned liar!

Everyone can see it & everyone knows it's there.

P.S. to be clearer:

White's taught Blacks to riot!

It's like trying to convince the Palestinians that terrorism doesn't work when they saw it work right before their eyes. The State of Israel came into being because of Zionist Terrorism (It wasn't the Arabs that blew up the King David Hotel.)

Feigned outrage. The mayor and council did not give a shit when they gave the fire wighters a pass on the nepotism rule that is pure systemic racism.

The KCMO council has paid no more attention to the operation, financial "management", or leadership in the KCFD than they have to the condition of the streets, the horrific murder rate, the water department, the city's own financial condition, or much of anything else that has to do with actual municipal government, so their feigned "shock" at what's going on in the fire houses shouldn't be a surprise.
And now on to more street "murals", an extension of THE streetcar, fighting among themselves, bicycle lanes, and rants about "racism".
It never changes, although the current crop at 12th and Oak seem particularly dysfunctional.
And the results for residents and small businesses speak for themselves.

Immigrants to this country--Legal, Illegal or Involuntary--are all free to expatriate somewhere better, if they can find it. Or stay and put their noses to the grindstone and build America up, instead of burning it down.

What’s the chance the equity and diversity officer position will be held by a white person. If not, then it doesn’t sound very equitable and diverse

Want to find racism? Look no further than the DNC. The DNC plays the race card at every opportunity, and then tries to convince Americans that we are racist country. Nothing could be further from the truth. Racism was essentially dead until President Obama fanned its dying embers. Racism = the DNC.

11:26 Please define systematic racism. Or is it just another term you learned in your Marxist playbook?

We know that systemic racism exists because blacks consistently trail all other races in every meaningful category: employment, educational testing, violent crime, you name it. It must be due to systemic racism because any other explanation would be racist.
