“One of the most damaging aspects of America’s deeply polarized politics, with so many jurisdictions automatically voting for one party no matter the candidate, is that it cracks the door open to candidates most people would never let near elective office. It’s easier for an unacceptable candidate to finagle a win in a primary than in the bigger pond of a general election — but in the deep-red Bootheel region, as in deep-blue St. Louis, the primary effectively is the general election.” – St Louis Post Dispatch
This is the trifling state of St. Louis politics, especially black politics. I’m using this quote from the white establishment media because black candidates stay seeking validation from them while at the same time calling them racist… they prefer that over talking to black voices that represent your interests yet have the audacity to ask for your vote.
This is how this new generation of black misleadership is being created. Do not be fooled by talks of change. None of them Is running to address our issues. In that sense they are no diff that what we already have. Either way we lose. That is by design.
