With the move to get rid of statues of men who held racists beliefs, Supreme Justice Roger Brooke Taney is one of the busts.  And you guessed it, our county is named after him.... and our lake is named after our county.

Knew a woman that liked living in this area she said because of the Bible. Lebanon and Ozarks. (Ark)

But she also belong to a Church that believed the Darker your skin the closer to satan you were.

What denomination would that be?   Can you just make up some rediculous crap, con a few initial followers, and then start up a growing community from it that's free from taxation?

Oh....wait.... Yes, yes obviously you can.  I mean Duh!

I guess what I meant to ask is....What do they call themselves?

Apparently Master Bedroom, blacklist, plantation, and many other common English words are on the list to be removed.  Does that mean terms like cracker will be a no go as well?  How about the word Jayhawk?  Nothing pleasant associated with that word either.  I'm all for equality.  Good people are good people.  Has nothing to do with race, creed, gender, etc.

Two signature sites in Kansas City are the Country Club Plaza shopping district and the JC Nichols Fountain near there. One of the main roads through the Plaza is Nichols Parkway. The Plaza and much of the surrounding residential development was done by visionary real estate developer Jesse Clyde Nichols. One of the covenants he incorporated into the deeds of the homes sold in the early to mid-1900s was a restriction against ownership by blacks or Jews. He didn't invent the practice, but he certainly was a proponent and helped the idea spread across the country.

So, now it's just 'that fountain' and 'that street' until they figure out something suitable. I know I feel a lot better now that we've cleaned all that up :D

I really don't remember I use to get Papers from them but she gave them everything she had and their main Church was in Arkansas. I remember she wouldn't eat any unclean meats.

And I'm very serious on their beliefs the darker the skin the closer to Satan they were.

River of Life Church was very much against Women, called them all Jezebels.
