Say it. Just say it.
The suburbs wouldn’t exist without them.
St. Louis is dangerous because of blacks. Without a black population, St. Louis is easily one of the world’s best and safest cities.
With a majority black population, the city is on life support.
‘We’re on life support’: Downtown St. Louis business leader is ready to leave, by Austin Huguelet, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, November 14, 2022
ST. LOUIS — A longtime downtown booster is moving out of downtown, and he’s making some noise about it.
Aaron Perlut, a founding partner at marketing firm Elasticity, wrote a LinkedIn post Monday blasting City Hall for not doing more to deal with drag racing, gunfire and general lawlessness in the area.
“For a region to be healthy, its heart must be strong,” he wrote. “Someone get the defibrillator. We’re on life support.”
He wrote the post after hearing an employee’s car had been broken into right outside the office on Locust Street, the second time in the past few weeks.
“It makes us yearn for the culmination of our lease which comes at the end of 2022 when we leave downtown,” he wrote.
It’s only the latest complaint about downtown in recent years. The pandemic hit hard, emptying offices, restaurants and entertainment venues. High-profile shootings, drag racing and late-night mayhem filled the gaps, fostering a sense of lawlessness in the heart of the region. Residents have complained they can’t sleep at night. Some business owners have worried the bad headlines will scare clientele away, and others have considered relocating themselves.
Perlut isn’t waiting around to find out what happens next. Elasticity’s lease is up at the end of the year, and the company, which employs 30 or so people in the area, is headed to Grand Center.
Out of 318,000 people, St. Louis is 46 percent black, 44 percent white (as of 2020 U.S. Census).
Our good friends at the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department not only put out an annual report on crime broken down by race, but a weekly analysis of the yearly crime rate.
Also, conveniently, breaking out violent crime by the race of suspects.
And thus far in 2022 nearly every homicide in St. Louis has a black suspect.
Black Lives Matter, though. Right?
For 2022, 118 of 122 known homicide suspects were black, or 97% of known homicide suspects in the 44% white city of St. Louis were black. That’s known suspects… through November 13, 2022.
The city is on life support because if you point out blacks are destroying Western Civilization in St. Louis, you court a death sentence.
Our world will change when we have the courage to admit the sunk cost black people represent to our civilization. Until then, more and more cities will be on “life support.”
