Blacken the county to keep Charlie Dooley and County Democrats in power forever?

The following is posted at: Countenance Blog,

There has been chatter among real estate professionals in St. Louis that Slay and St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley swung a secret deal, where the city would stop taking new applications for Section 8, while the county would accept many more.

This would de-blacken the city, meaning less crime and more left-wing white yuppies moving in, and blacken the county to keep Charlie Dooley and County Democrats in power forever. Wherever the neighborhood in Slay’s ad is, it might have benefited from that more than anything.

Many of the renovations the Mayor boasts about are happening in city neighboroods like Soulard and Benton Park that just so happened still to be mostly white.

    This sounds exactly like something Charlie would do...........

    I bet Garry Earls suggested it.

    Time for Charlie to go!

    Unbelievable. Absolute bigotry. Worried about the county being "blackened?"

    Quite frankly, I expected better.

    I admired this group for opposing the trash districts. But racism is where I draw the line. Very short-sighted rant from what I thought was a progressive group. Unfortunately, I was wrong. Looks like at least one person on this blog is still in the stone age.

    Making the news to print here is not what I see. Reporting the news here is what I look for. I don't see any bigotry, just reporting the facts. Thanks for reporting the news.
