Not one.

Not a single one.

Of all the media outlets in Kansas City, none dared show a picture of Barbara Harper. In not one of the local news affiliate broadcast (ABC, CBS, FOX, or NBC) did a newscast show her face when they described how she died.

Not one.

Not a single one.

Rest in peace, Barbara

Barbara Harper was a 71-year-old white woman. She was wife, a mother, a grandmother, and a great-grandmother. She was returning home from her work on the nightshift at her job with the United States Postal Service. She was murdered by a black man who mistook her car for one he had previously engaged in a shooting incident with at a strip club.

Seventy-one years on this earth, only to be end because a black gang-banger mistook your car for one he had previously been in a shooting incident with at a strip club.

Of all the media outlets in Kansas City, none dared show a picture of Barbara Harper. [71-year-old woman killed in KC shooting was victim of mistaken identity, police think,, 1-17-19]:

A 71-year-old woman found shot and killed on Interstate 70 just east of downtown Kansas City may have been targeted by mistake, according to police.

Murder charges filed Thursday against a man accused in the shooting said the victim,

Making sense why the local media in Kansas City never showed a picture of Barbara… this is the man who murdered her in a case of “mistaken identity”

may have been shot after being mistaken for someone else who was involved in an earlier shooting incident near a Kansas City strip club.

Surveillance camera footage from the area of the shooting led Kansas City police to 25-year-old Dakkota Siders, according to court documents.

Siders, of Independence, was charged Thursday in Jackson County Circuit Court with second-degree murder, unlawful possession and use of a firearm and delivery of a controlled substance.

Harper was shot while driving on Interstate 70 near the Paseo, according to the documents. Her car ran off the road and into an embankment.

Detectives obtained video from a number of surveillance cameras to show the shooting and a suspect vehicle speeding from the area.

They were also able to obtain the car’s license plate number and trace it to Siders, according to the documents.

Officers were watching the address when Siders drover up in a car matching the car seen on the surveillance videos.

When he was arrested, Siders was carrying one 9mm handgun in his waistband and another under his armpit, the charges allege.

Police obtained a search warrant for his house, where they found another handgun, two bullet-resistant vests and about three pounds of marijuana.

During the investigation, detectives learned of a disturbance where shots were fired outside the Shady Lady at 2800 East 12th Street shortly before Harper was killed.

Surveillance footage there showed a silver car and a white car speeding from the scene. Siders was driving a silver car when he was arrested, and Harper’s car was white.

Officers recovered 9mm shell casings at both shooting scenes, and testing determined that they had been fired from the same gun, the charges allege.

Detectives said they think Harper was targeted because her car resembled the one involved in the Shady Lady incident.


The only reason we know Barbara Harper was a white woman is because of the incredibly moving obituary found at, which includes a video tribute memorial to her. She left behind a wonderful, growing family, murdered by a black male seeking retribution against what ended up being the wrong car and the wrong occupant.

And not one.

Not a single one.

Not a single Kansas City news outlet, print or local newscast, dared showed her photo.

Were white privilege, implicit bias and systemic racism real, we’d not only see have seen Barbara Harper’s photo in every newscast in Kansas City and on the front pages of the newspaper in the city, but her murder (yet another black-on-white homicide) would be the lead story on every national nightly newscast and fodder for late night hosts and cable news programs.

As it is, this is probably the only place you’ll read about Barbara Harper, a 71-year-old white woman who was murdered by a black male, in what local news are calling a case of mistaken identity.

Rest in peace, Barbara.

    I sometimes run these stories by my parents. They are close in age to this lady. “That’s sad.” “This world is coming to an end.” That’s the typical response. Hardly any empathy.

    I hate to go off topic on something as heinous as this. But as I mentioned I’m black. I feel like I’m in solitary confinement. I can’t talk to anyone I know about how I feel about certain people.

    So excuse me if I vent a bit. Tonight I was on the phone with a “friend”. We were discussing nogs kneeling. I brought up the case about the 6th grader in Florida refusing to stand for the anthem.

    I asked her, how does a 6th grader become so politically astute to decide to kneel and hate his country?

    I’m not religious. However, i was in a church recently. When the minister asked people to stand and sing, I stood. I highlighted an example of NFL players standing for the UK anthem. Then kneeling for their own.

    Is this why black neighborhoods are filthy? How can you respect your neighborhood if you don’t even respect the country? Someone needs to start asking blacks this question.

    From article:
    If living in the United States is “so bad,” why not go to another place to live? substitute teacher Ana Alvarez asked the student, according to a handwritten statement from her.

    “They brought me here,” the boy replied.

    “Suspend me! I don’t care. This school is racist,” the student, who is black, told the dean as he walked out of the classroom with his backpack, according to the affidavit.

  3. In a couple of weeks the Ministry of Propaganda – along with an endless stream of Democrat Party presidential candidates – will descend on Selma, Ala, to provide endless media coverage of the Selma bridge crossing ‘jubilee’. Meanwhile in Jacksonville, Fla, Florida state Sen. Audrey Gibson, D-Jacksonville, is calling for the Florida governor to send state troopers to patrol the streets of Jacksonville hoping to curtail violence. One city perpetually propagandizes clashes with state troopers, while another begs the governor to send state troopers to restore order in the streets. Ironic isn’t it?

    ‘Community outraged’ after 6 deaths in 4 days of Jacksonville gun violence’

    State senator says she’s asking governor to bring in troopers to patrol streets

    By Jim Piggott – Reporter, Kent Justice – Anchor/reporter

    Posted: 11:59 AM, February 18, 2019

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – After a four-day spree of deadly violence in Jacksonville, elected officials announced Monday that they will ask the state and possibly the federal government for help patrolling the city’s streets.

    “I believe our streets are filled with blood and tears,” state Sen. Audrey Gibson, D-Jacksonville said. “I believe that the funeral homes — no disrespect to them or any deceased person — the funeral homes are the biggest business in Jacksonville right now. I am so over it.”

    “Our city, I say, is on fire. Let me tell you what this is not. Our press conference is not about blaming law enforcement. Our press conference is not political posturing. That is not why we are here. The community is outraged,” Gibson said. 

    Gibson said it’s time to declare a state of urgency, if not emergency. She said she will be asking the governor to bring in the Florida Highway Patrol and maybe even the National Guard or federal government to help patrol the streets of Jacksonville. …

    This is the kind of crime that is tragic beyond words. Some brutish thug breaks into the wrong address to rob drug dealers, shoots the wrong kid walking down the street, or shoots at a fellow criminal in a car and kills a baby in the backseat. The perps are so stupid and in such a hurry to kill, that they can’t be bothered to get the right person.

    My mother once told me, “If our government pays people to reproduce, no matter how much or how little, there will be people that reproduce. We should never be surprised by such stupidity.”

    I believe the subspecies in America is becoming more and more stupid because we support stupid people in birthing more babies for all the wrong reasons, while smarter, more successful people of every race have fewer children because of the taxes and all costs of properly raising and educating children.

    Clearly, this ignorant criminal is from the very tail of the Bell Curve. Sad that our government encourages this dumbing down of our nation. It has a great price.

  5. Everyone knows why the media does not show the faces of the victims and their killers: it would expose the black race for what they are! As you quite eloquently laid out in a previous editorial on black crime, if blacks were taken somehow from the picture in St. Louis, Missouri, then there would hardly be any violent crimes at all. It would be one of the safest cities on earth.

    If our white people would simple come out of the delusion that the two races can co-exist, then maybe people like this dear white woman would still be alive today.

    Even some members of the black race admit they also see the bias, and they acknowledge the failure of their race to assimilate.

    As Dr. Watson said, there isn’t really much hope for the race because they never evolved to be much more than a people in the tropics living in grass huts.

    This slaughter will continue on a ever increasing basis depending on the negro population of an area. The economic condition is also affected by negro desity in an area.

    Because of their feeble minds and violent natures, they should never have been allowed to vote, or serve on a jury.

    A person on this site corrected me the other day about Lincoln’s thoughts concerning negroes. I believe that Lincoln was a realist, but political expediency made him alter his thinking. Lincoln was clear that negroes should not vote, serve on a jury, or marry whites. When the person corrected me, I pointed out to them that Lincoln used qualifiers on those who should vote and get citizenship: intelligent blacks, and those who served in the war. OK…how many blacks back then had IQs over 70? One does not need an IQ test to determine if a people are slow, or not. As I remember my history, the death toll of whites FAR exceeded the blacks.

    Finally, the only way now is separation. The blacks cannot, and will not change. Time has already proven that point!

  6. Ofcourse with the blacks it will always be, “He was a gud boi” and with (((other))) folks it’s always, “He was a bad (((egg)))” even when all the evidence points to your communities having a disproportionate amount of “gud bois” and “bad (((eggs)))

  7. Ofcourse, with aome communities it will always be, “He was a gud boi”. And yet with (((others))), it will always be “He was a bad (((egg)))”, despite all the evidence pointing to a disproportionate amount of “gud bois” and “bad (((eggs))) in these communities.

    Most whites would favor the hanging, drawing and quartering of the degenerate element in our communities.

  8. Lost their fear, indeed. Of us. Of the law. Of retribution. We’ve built quite an enemy. Numerous, unintelligent and without enough common sense to comprehend fear.

    Black have been used for centuries by the power brokers to destroy areas before running in and gobbling up property. It was done after the civil war to the south. In cities and towns in the north when they were shipped all around the country to ‘share the pain’. Send the black in to destroy the area, lower prices, then pick up the real estate, drive up the prices and move the blacks out to the next area.

    Why do you think that the top 5% richest folks control like 75% of the worlds weath?

    Not because they’re selling bait!

    Dear Anon 185,

    It may feel you are in solitary confinement at times, but please take the time to ponder this.

    I have not done a thing to you and your kind, nor have my ancestors before me. Yet for some reason I often feel not like I am trapped in solitary confinement, but that I am stuck in “general population”.

    I do not appreciate having had to grow up around your kind and put up with the lies they told about your people especially knowing all the lies that were also told about my people. The lies told of your people made them out to be providential however it seems most of you are problematic.

    Thanks for the bottle of whine!

    Its been a state of emergency since the Emancipation Proclamation;the Civil Rights Act was just a nother tool that these animals used to wage war on western civilization.

    Strip clubs with lots of black customers are highly dangerous to be around. There are frequent late night shootings in the parking lots or in the club itself in the city I live in, Indianapolis. The customers that have any sense stay away from them and those also happen to be the customers with money to spend so strip club managers try their hardest to keep that “ghetto” feel from developing in their club by not playing rap, checking identification at the door, patting down the customers for guns, not hiring overly ghetto acting black strippers who attract their friends into the club, tossing out anyone caught with drugs or obviously intoxicated, and having heavy security to immediately stop any fights.

    Clubs that cater to black are black clubs.

    White clubs go to great lengths to limit their numbers. Not allowing their typical shenanigans is usually good enough to make them pick up and leave.

    Easiest way to keep them out is a cover charge.

    The faculty members wrote that a police force employed by the university would be “undemocratic” and “antagonistic” with Baltimore’s nonwhite population. The introduction of new armed police officers, they wrote, could pose an increased safety risk and “inevitably amplify the climate of fear and justify their roles by citing stops, arrests, and detainments.”

    Agreed, I have been saying those same words as your mother for 40 years now. Have read those same words spoken even before the 1965 Civil Rights Acts , et al. were enacted . To subsidize the reproduction of more “useless” eaters and to give “takers” , franchise, the ability to vote for more “gibs” is a ticket to a Civilization’s destruction. Happened to the Roman empire, it is definitely happening to America.

    Strange I still cannot use the agree function, while I don’t always “check my info” or the edits erase that, I would venture half of my posts have , out of the 40-50 I may have done over the last few years.

    The Liberians made an error.

    The Americo-Liberian settlers did not relate well to the indigenous peoples they encountered, especially those in communities of the more isolated “bush”, They knew nothing of their cultures, languages, or animist religion. Encounters with tribal Africans in the bush often developed as violent confrontations. The colonial settlements were raided by the Kru and Grebo from their inland chiefdoms. Because of feeling set apart and superior by their culture and education to the indigenous peoples, the Americo-Liberians developed as an elite minority that held on to political power. It excluded the indigenous tribesmen from birthright citizenship in their own lands until 1904, in a parallel of the United States’ treatment of Native Americans. Because of ethnocentrism and the cultural gap, the Americo-Liberians envisioned creating a western-style state to which the tribesmen should assimilate. They promoted religious organizations to set up missions and schools to educate the indigenous peoples.

    Should have cleaned up. An error.

    Well, that and being fugged in the a$$ a bit later by Uncle Samuel, as is the Uncle’s custom.

    On April 12, 1980, a military coup led by Master Sergeant Samuel Doe of the Krahn ethnic group overthrew and killed President William R. Tolbert, Jr.. Doe and the other plotters later executed a majority of Tolbert’s cabinet and other Americo-Liberian government officials and True Whig Party members. The coup leaders formed the People’s Redemption Council (PRC) to govern the country. A strategic Cold War ally of the West, Doe received significant financial backing from the United States while critics condemned the PRC for corruption and political repression.
