I can think of 3 times black leadership in St. Louis had an opportunity to change the trajectory for black people by just supporting black and instead completely dropped the ball… 1. When Nelly got on… instead of seizing the opportunity as Atlanta did and building an entire entertainment industry upon it by supporting the local hip hop scene and artists that were getting signed, Mayor Clarence Harmon led the charge against young black rappers by refusing to give Nelly a key to the city… Nelly was also kicked out of Union Station for wearing a do-rag and threatened with arrest during at TWA flight originating from St. Louis. TWA was based in St. Louis. Black leaders did not see the vision. Atlanta did. Nelly went on to go 9x Platinum. 2. When we took to the streets during Ferguson… black leaders, orgs and clergy jumped out in front, declared themselves leaders then sold out to the Democratic Party and NPIC who used BLM fronted by Ferguson mascots to sell it. Again, they did not see value in the efforts of young black youth, even when they reignited a movement. The world did, BLM did, The Democratic Party did. The NPIC did…. they’re all still eating off hat effort. 3. Today, now, during the era of Trump… at a time we should be pushing an agenda that speaks to our specific interests, black leaders are rallying black people to vote for establishment Dems and unqualified white progressives in black face while pushing intersectionality, ‘standing in solidarity’ & diversity…. in one of the most racist and oppressive regions in the country, controlled by Democrats. Black people are fleeing the Democratic Party in droves, instead of rising against the party just as our young people rose against the establishment and leading the exodus, they cowered.
