At least today. I tune into my morning news source, the BBC World Service, and I hear not just Kansas City being mentioned, but even Funkhouser’s grave digger’s voice. Take a listen to the piece centered around the Mayor’s plan to make the city more bicycle friendly. The whole time I was wondering if one of the people along for the ride was a blogger…
Even though I am not the biggest R. Kelly fan, I have to say that he put on an excellent show on Friday night. It was lacking flow, but it was full of his hits and it was a crowd pleaser for sure. Sadly, this post is not about that, but about how sad I was for black people after the show.
I don’t have token black friends, I happen to have several friends that are black. I was happy to be able to take a couple of them to see R. Kelly at our company’s private suite. Everything was going great until we noticed that a couple of suites down, a group of what can only be described as exotic dancers showed up. They were drinking heavily and overall seemed to be having a good time.
Here is the part when I started to get sad about black people. My wife had to go to the restroom, and she was taking a while to come back. To get into the private suites your ticket is required; I figured maybe she forgot to take her ticket, so I went to wait for her outside the suite just in case.
The Chiefs players that were there were not misbehaving, but their guests were being extremely obnoxious. They started to spill food and drinks on the floor. Then I saw my wife coming back to the suite and she told me that she was trapped in the bathroom not wanting to come out while the people that were in there, trashing the place and swearing up a storm, happened to also be part of the Chiefs entourage.
On our way out we saw not only a mess on the floor, but puke on the way to the bathroom from someone that didn’t quite had a chance to make it. While I cannot blame everything on the Chiefs entourage, I know they were the people that have behaved the worse on all the events that I have attended in the Sprint Center.
I was really sad when it was normal for the people I was with that some people would just act that way. While not all of the people at the Sprint Center were black, the show is already being considered the first black show there. I heard the people that work there complaining about how trashed everything was, and how it was the first time such thing happened. It made it seemed like just because some people don’t know how to behave it puts a negative on an entire race. Kind of sad to me, because if white trash act up at a concert, nobody blames he whole white race.
