For that matter, pretty much all of Kansas City Missouri used to be white too. What's your point, kcmo? I have a relative (now deceased, born in 1919) whose first brand new home was in a brand new subdivision close to where the Kansas City VA is now. It was all white. She also lived at 18th and Kensington, also all white. And various other places in Jackson County, all white.

So kcmo, are you saying that Johnson County is doing better than Kansas City, Missouri because more white people live in Johnson County now than in KCMO? That sounds kind of racist.

No, I said JoCo doesn't have a lot of diverse demographic stats so it looks great on paper. And I never said JoCo was better than KCMO. Sure, Leawood is better than east KCMO. But is JoCo better than KCMO overall? No freaking way. You can easily live any lifestyle of choice in KCMO including suburban, but suburban is all JoCo offers.

I disagree. I think Johnson County IS better than KCMO overall. That's why I live in Johnson County. If I wanted an urban lifestyle I would move to KCMO. But I do NOT want an urban lifestyle. And I like the Johnson County suburbs.
