Leaders in the region are reactionary, doing waaaaay too much. The establishment knows change is coming, its not a matter of if, but when. The city/county merger is their way of controlling it by jumping out in front of it.
Black leadership has been missing at the table, and is neutralized. They’s scrambling for relevancy or to keep their job… or are trying to reposition themselves in the system and status quo. They will try to rally us… tell us black leadership is under attack. Don’t be bamboozled by negros who spent their entire political careers playing gatekeeper, exploiting or turning a blind eye to black deaths, pain and suffering…. and sabotaging black progress.
Memba me talking about holding our own accountable? Circumstances and consequences will dictate even if we don’t. The establishment is kicking them to the curb because they no longer serve their interest or purpose. Stop caping. They never served ours.
It’s rebuilding time for black St. Louis… we need new leaders, new players, new coaches who can deal with our new reality. Not those who didn’t see it coming, we complicit or turned a blind eye.
