Fam, this isn’t hating. I gave some of these people the benefit of the doubt, reached out to some. Applauded them the handful of times they did the right thing, but they made a choice… to work against the best interest of the community. Now the community must work against them. The days of any ole black and black misleadership not being called out or their feet held to the fire and blind support are over. Their days are numbered…. the old loyal negro base is dying. They alienated/sold out millennial during Ferguson. Term limits. Ward reduction. Voter apathy. Residents leaving St. Louis in droves. They have no one to blame but themselves.

The prosecutor who helped Darren Wilson get off is about to get reelected. Again. Token opposition both times. There is no push by black leaders to remove him from power like their push to keep Claire McCaskill in power. <br><br>I swear I’m not making this up…

"Did black leadership “Wake Up, Stay Woke”? Absolutely not. "

They didn't recognize or seize the moment. Black Lives Matter, Deray and countless out of town orgs that came to set up shop did. Instead of preventing the hijacking, 'prominent protesters', the self anointed and clergy turned nonprofit hustlas joined them.

That's typical of 'black leadership' in St. Louis.... joining/caping for the opposition in exchange for grants, money, access and validation. They did it with BLM, paved a lane for Lyda Krewson to win, voting for Prop P and now pushing Claire McCaskill.
