  • The fashion police won't be as strict in the Power & Light District.

Getting into the Power & Light District is going to be easier. The Kansas City Star reports the P&L will no longer lock out people wearing "baggy clothing, undershirts, sweatshirts or athletic attire."

But there's still sort of a dress code. You can't have naughty words on your clothes. Sweatpants and full sweatsuits are no-nos. And guys, you can't wear sleeveless shirts. This isn't a gun show.

It's all at a time when several major African-American conventions -- most notably the NAACP National Convention in July and the National Baptist Convention USA in September -- are headed to KC. Cha-ching!.

And it only took two years of fighting to get it done. Progress!

The

Star also reports that the city and P&L developer Cordish

recently settled a discrimination complaint brought by the city. The

settlement is confidential.

Cordish still faces a lawsuit in

federal court brought by members of an African-American family who claim they weren't let

in the Mosaic nightclub while white folks wearing similar clothes were

let in.
