KANSAS CITY FINALLY RESOLVES DIVISIVE MLK STREET NAME FIGHT BY REJECTING PROPOSAL FOR CITYWIDE UNITY!!!

In a few moments the Parks Board will approve an obligatory "solution" to years of fighting that won't really satisfy anybody. 

Following a national disgrace wherein neighborhood voters REJECTED MLK BLVD ON THE PASEO the first time around . . . Here's a preview of today's decision:

"Board members will vote on renaming parts of three streets. The boulevard would run along what's now parts of Blue Parkway, Swope Parkway and Volker Boulevard. Tuesday's meeting starts at 2 p.m."

Here's what people who reside in Kansas City, MO should understand . . .

SPECIAL INTERESTS & ACTIVISTS DOMINATED THIS DISAPPOINTING COMPROMISE!!!

Moreover . . .

RESIDENTS PROPOSED MLK ON 63RD STREET THAT WOULD'VE SPANNED ACROSS KANSAS CITY AND OFFERED A MORE HOPEFUL SIGN OF UNITY!!!

The 63rd street solution earned a bit of support but a grudge match betwixt East side clerics and neighborhood leaders prevented the idea from moving forward.

Even worse, clueless suburban activists entered the discussion with absolutely no understanding of KC's geography expect for 3rd-rate college lamentations.

And so, an idea from people who own homes and work in Kansas City was overlooked in order to bow to special interests who started the debate hoping to protect their fiefdoms and now garner only measly tribute to a long gone era.

The aftermath of this episode in Kansas City's history might earn obligatory praise whilst only a few people understand that LOCALS WANTED KANSAS CITY MLK UNITY OVER POLITICS and were rejected by their leaders.

Disgusting to rename ANY street just so the family can bleed the public dry for the rest of their lives to the 10th generation!!! The man would be disgusted at what his people have done with their freedom!

Why should we name anything after MLK? He was a plagiarist and a philanderer. His real name wasn’t even Martin Luther.

If you’re on the Parks Board, you are a pandering piece of shit, just like our chickenshit mayor.

This is racist and nothing more than a black power move. They have changed the names of our fountains changed street names and painted racist graffiti all over the city. Go ahead and do this and I will scream all over the place just like you black people are doing. Boycott all black people for turning our city into a racist dump. Keep them out of your suburb this is what they do they are the ones who are racist haters always have been. The klan was right NO BLACKS ALLOWED. Hats off to Joe Biden for one thing. He was against desegregation.

No one is supposed to be seeing street signs now. The Libtards want all people hiding in their basements, like Basement Biden, from COVID, even after they are vaccinated or have gotten the virus. Stay fearful of the big bad wolf and under Libtard government control.

This will fix all of Kansas City’s ills. The more of this virtue signaling crap that goes on, the worse the problem gets. This is laughable.

Well, when you pretend that racism is still the same as 1963, and you're too scared to address the violence and dysfunction in black communities, change a street sign! It's a suitably empty gesture for a suitably empty movement.

The cleave is behind all this, nobody cares about mlk anymore, the cleave is pissed because hopis own black community has been telling him no since 1977.

This has been a 44 year mission for the cleave and the fat fake revruns, typical dimwit power move here, they still believe no means yes. Idiots all of them.

And how much money do we have to pay mlk’s family for this bullshit? People don’t know they have to pay yearly to rent this nobody’s name.

A national disgrace... Is that what you call stopping your overlords’ arbitrary takings?

Also paint bike lanes on those streets so the black cyclists are protected.

as long as it is a street warning to avoid the area i'm fine with it.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Finally! We can rename that street and stop all of the rioting and looting. We'll all honor Martin Luther King and that would put an end to this racism claim once and for all.

If it ain't white. Scratch that. If it ain't black, you turns it black.

I wonder if the board has done their homework.

From wiki:
"The area is named after one of its beloved former residents: William Volker,[2] a German-born philanthropist who donated most of his fortune to the city and its poor."

Why would they even consider renaming Volker???

In every American City with a street named after Martin Luther King Jr. it is a street with no viable businesses, no life, no commerce, no nice homes, no sign of pride. These streets all over America are show places of the deplorable neighborhoods it runs through. They are places of crime and despair, now that is what we have to look forward to in KC.
