34. I'm sure you are aware that local bars have dress codes against the same attire.
There is one in Overland Park. Actually two right next door to each other, and cover in one also applies to the other. One is a mostly rock, though it has a wide range of music and is blue collar, but it does not have a dress code. The other plays mostly rap all the time, but has a more upscale atmosphere. The one that plays rap does enforce it's dress code that keeps out a bad element, but it also will not allow me to come in, due to the way I dress. No exceptions.

One night, a white woman was bitching to the doorman of the upscale bar about why her black friends could not come in, due to the way they were dressed. I had been talking to the doorman, so I was standing there listening to this woman claim it was racism and discrimination. At that point I interrupted her, and told her that they would not let me in either, because of the way I was dressed. She looked at me, and said, 'well I can understand why.' Hmm... That really amused me, but I bit my lip and said no more. Once she said that, she proved that she was full of shit and the discrimination claim was a total crock of shit. This woman was such an idiot, that she did not even realize what she had done. So, spare me the discrimination claim, because it is pure bullshit.

Cordish and the City of Kansas City are only trying to protect their investment and prevent it from slipping back into urban decay. They made this decision before they even broke ground, because the venues and business they are seeking, requires it from them. Sorry, NCAA Tournaments, concerts, conventions, professional sports teams, people on vacation or business, etc. etc. are not interested in gansta rap or being in the hood and would avoid it.

Oh, and if you are the woman, who was complaining that night, I completely understand now.
