15. "I have also had first hand experience."
Edited on Sun Nov-15-09 11:37 AM by Kansas Wyatt
"A group of my friends and I got in, all in violation of the dress code. No problem. But then we are white folks."

"I am glad to see this come up because this city has a long ugly history of racism and white privilege. I am sick of it."

Oh, and Bannister Mall has now been leveled and removed. In the early 1980s that was the best mall around, and I remember it when I was a kid. When I moved here in 2000, Bannister Mall had become a place to avoid, because of what it turned into. If you want to draw people in, like the Power & Light District, then you don't let it become a place that people want to avoid going to. After all, if those businesses close down, because they cannot attract customers, then Kansas City and Cordish fails at the investment in the District. Sorry, it's just a simple fact.

They would probably say I was in violation of the dress code, with the way I dress, but I don't care.
