Antisemitism in Kansas City
Young Jews in Kansas City hoped their generation wouldn’t have to worry about discrimination, but anti-Semitic incidents are only increasing. Plus, getting dangerous chemicals out of drinking water could just about bankrupt small towns in Kansas.
The Anti-Defamation League has been keeping track of anti-Semitic incidents in the U.S. since 1979 and says they've never been higher than last year. In Kansas City, a new generation of Jews is coming to terms with that. KCUR’s Luke Martin reports.
For towns with only a few hundred residents, keeping tap water clean and safe can be a daunting expense. And as David Condos of the Kansas News Service reports, that’s likely to become more common in western Kansas as chemicals from farms seep into dwindling water supplies.
