Lots of local posts to catch up on… Don’t like taking about the region, its a cesspool. The establishment Democratic machine is running people away in droves. The city has a fraction of the population it had just 50 years ago. Black leadership that operates independent of the establishment Democratic machine is virtually nonexistent. Most are career politicians who spent their entire careers tap dancing, soft shoeing or ducking and dodging. They lost support of the community years ago… they do have support with the old negro guard and liberals/progressives who exploit black issues and black people for their own agenda.
Everything you heard about the region… the racism, oppression, corruption, high crime, low wages, blighted communities, diminishing of safety nets and survival mentality that results is what happens when career Democrats, liberals/progressives and black misleadership are allowed to ‘govern’ unchecked and with impunity for generations.
Its hard to talk any of their calls for Gov Greitens to step down serious when their actions/policies over the past 25+ years have led to the murder and incarceration of black people, blighted black communities and set black St. Louis back decades.
