Akari is a town in the southeastern Kansas city of Kansas City.
For the last 10 years, the population of the town has dropped by more than half, from 4,000 to just under 3,500.
Akari has seen the rise and fall of many residents over the past two decades, from struggling low-income families to affluent, affluent families.
The rise in Akari’s population coincided with a surge in drug use and gang violence, which led to the loss of the city’s historic black population.
The decline in the black population has been attributed to several factors, including increased crime, lack of affordable housing, a lack of mental health care, and the lack of educational opportunities.
In an interview with the National Review, a conservative blog, conservative activist, and former KKK leader David Duke called the town “a disaster” and said that the residents “deserve to die.”
Duke, who served as the mayor of Akari from 2004 to 2008, claimed that the population in Akaris’ downtown area has declined by 25 percent in the last decade.
Duke has made this claim many times, but his comments have garnered less attention because he has not been able to substantiate them with the data.
Akaris population declined by more to 40 percent over the last five years, according to a study from the Kansas City Journal, while the black community saw its population decline by more by almost 30 percent.
This has led Duke to claim that Akari should be closed because it is “a black hole in the economy.”
Duke also told the Kansas Star that the town is a “black hole” because of the drug problem, and has said that he is a proud KKK member.
In response to Duke’s comments, Akari Mayor Tim Loeffler has said in a press release that “it’s unfortunate that one of our most important industries, a vital part of our economy, has fallen to the level of a black hole.”
Loefferler told the Star that he believes that Duke’s statements were “very unfair.”
Lueffler also added that the mayor “did not want to see people die” because he is “very concerned for the health and well-being of the people of Akaris.”
Loescher, who is also the chairman of the Akari Chamber of Commerce, told the Journal that Duke has “not been able or willing to answer any of our questions.”
He said that Duke, “is one of those people that says something and then has to backtrack or he doesn’t get the blame.”
He added that Duke was a “racist and racist” man.
Akarie has also been the subject of a major scandal.
In April, Akarie Police Chief Steve Hargett told The Associated Press that Akarie had “a very small number of narcotics activity” in the area and said he could not “make any kind of informed judgment on the actual number of drug dealers.”
He also claimed that “a majority of the heroin being sold in the city comes from the Akarie area,” adding that the city is “still a very dangerous place.”
In April 2016, the AP reported that Akarian police officers found drugs in the trash and in the garbage, which they found to be marijuana, cocaine, and amphetamines.
In a subsequent press release, the police chief claimed that drug use in the town had “skyrocketed” and that the drug issue “is the main reason for the decline in our population.”
The AP also reported that the Akarees heroin and methamphetamine problems have “been well-documented” by police, including the fact that drug dealers were “trying to conceal their illegal activity from police.”
The chief claimed the drug problems in Akarie “have led to more than 20 arrests in recent months.”
The mayor also told The Kansas City Star that Akarey police officers are “always vigilant, even if it means being out of town” because “they want to protect the safety and well being of their communities.”
But Akari police did not respond to the AP’s request for comment on Loeffeler’s statement.
In October, Loeferld told the AP that Akarites heroin and meth problems are “the main reason we have the crime problem.”
The Kansas Star reported that “the Akareys heroin and other drug problems, which have been blamed on the growing drug epidemic, have led to police being out in the field looking for suspects and arresting drug dealers,” which resulted in “an influx of drugs into the town.”
The same year, the Akarians heroin problem grew to a point that the police department had to shut down its drug task force and send in its own drug squad to patrol the streets.
The AP reported in 2016 that “local police are increasingly finding themselves in a Catch-22 situation: They can’t control drug use while the town itself is losing population.
But the town’s heroin problem is killing more and more residents and is contributing to a decline in its African American population,
