Re: Politics

Why would I be against treating better? Morally and practically, I believe in treating people better. You said people probably wouldn't like a white person holding an ALM sign at a BLM rally. Ok, fine. So, I asked what if it's a black person holding an ALM sign at a BLM rally? That's not a straw man...

Re: Politics

"All Lives Matter" is a racist movement not because the statement "all lives matter" isn't true on its face but because that's not what the movement actually stands for. I'm not taking about the ALM movement. I'm just saying BLM and the alt right don't seem to believe that all l...

Re: Politics

All very excellent points, shinatoo. Very well said, too. I appreciate that. Thanks. While I can't think of any good reason why a white supremacist group would be founded, I do think BLM was founded with the best of intentions to fix a racial injustice. I can fully support that cause! However, sadly...

Re: Politics

Well, I am sure many in that group do. But, as a group, their actions (or inactions) would indicate otherwise.

Go to a BLM rally holding a sign that says, "All lives matter" and see how you're treated. If the videos on YouTube are any indication, they probably won't like that.

Re: Politics

I assume you are trying to equate the two? The Alt right and BLM? Yes and no. Yes, in the sense they're both groups founded on a particular race and they both can use violence/scare tactics to make their points and neither seem to believe in an "all lives matter" society. No, in the sense...

It wouldn't surprise me if Trump invites them to the White House like Obama invited BLM.

In any event, while white supremacists are protesting in Virginia, Missouri remains the only state on the NAACP's travel warning list.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Are there other cities of about half a million people that have the same problem KC does? The most dense part of the city is also the most insignificant.

Usually, the most dense areas control the election results in that city or state. But that doesn't seem to be the case in either KC or Missouri.

Re: Gay marriage

California has banned travel to states that they deem to be anti-LGBT. But since same sex marriage is legal in all 50 states, I don't know how they determine what makes a state "anti-LGBT." Restroom laws? A gender neutral option for driver's licenses? Ross Dress for Less?

Re: Best and Worst Suburban Downtowns

I'm including a few cities that aren't actually suburbs, but not including Lawrence because I think it's pretty much a given their downtown is awesome. The best: 1. NKC - Nice street grid, easy to walk and bike, nice mixture of shops and urban housing. Not much "history," but still charmin...

So, each downtown neighborhood would have to actually purchase X amount of these to have it be uniform in the downtown area? That sucks.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Yeah, that's a downside to KU's loss: their fans were probably less likely to stay downtown after the game, especially if they often visit downtown anyway. I'm not sure how many Oregon fans were downtown, but there's probably a good chance KC's suburbs had more Oregon fans than those that were downt...

Re: Getting involved downtown

Number one on my list would probably be the downtown council. That's a good way of meeting other downtown residents and keeping up with downtown causes and events.

I'd also recommend the Downtown​ Neighborhood Association.

It's too bad the state university that represents Kansas City is not in the tournament. Why? At this point, none of KC's 3 local universities are playing, but the tournament will still have great attendance, so I don't think KC is missing much. Are the fans using the streetcar system?

Re: Big 12 Tournament

We better hope the state doesn't pass some bathroom bill because if they do, the tournament will certainly be gone. Where would they move it to? The open-minded states of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, or West Virginia? Heck, even Iowa is a red state now. I guess they could move it to Colorado or Nevada ...
