Come here to talk about topics that are not related to development, or even Kansas City.

Not sure that people are "hesitant" to talk about it because it's about race (at least, I'm not), just not sure what there really is to say about the mayor supporting a symbolic city ordinance urging Congress, which doesn't answer to the KC city council, to do something. If you're actually just trying to bait people into a conversation about reparations, then just say you want to talk about reparations. I think I can already picture how that conversation would go, though.

I was just making a joke. I don’t care to discuss the topic myself, especially not with some folks on here, like you, that think you know me and my opinions before even having the conversations.

Sounds like a big day in NKC. Would be amazing if the pro-transit people get elected.
