Segment looks at racial divide and role of Delmar Blvd. Always noticed this divide over the years... (grew up along Delmar..although further west, along the city's border. Divide persisted there too..and still does to this day). This is the elephant in the room that people in the area are aware of on some level...but never talk about. It's the first time I have seen it reported by a major news service...or any news service for that matter. Local media never touches the subject.
Knew St. Louis was one of the most segregated... but report really makes the point. See here.
"The two parties have combined against us to nullify our power by a ‘gentleman's agreement' of non-recognition, no matter how we vote ... May God write us down as asses if ever again we are found putting our trust in either the Republican or the Democratic Parties." -- W.E.B. DuBois (1922)
