Join host Hank Thompson for an in-depth look at Saint Louis City and County politics. Today’s special guest is the Honorable James McGee, Mayor of Vinita Park in North Saint Louis County. Also joining are Tangazo regulars Tim Person and social justice activist Reverend Darryl Gregory Gray.
Discussions included the reduction of violent crime in Saint Louis, the spending of federal stimulus money in the city, and the continued disrespect of African American women on the Saint Louis County Council.
Today’s guests make note of the fact that the “Black Girl Magic” used to describe Saint Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones, Congresswoman Cori Bush, and Saint Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardener was not extended to the African American women on the Saint Louis County Council and that both black progressives and white progressives must face their disrespect for these women.
