Editorial note: As expressed on our "St. Louis' Racial Oppression" page, although the City of St. Louis is majority black, black culture and entertainment are often excluded by major events and institutions. Many events lacking inclusion are supported by your tax dollars. Since we first published that page, we have noticed more inclusion of black acts at the History Museum Twilight Tuesdays, VP Fair and now Loufest, however, more inclusion is still needed.

Editorial note: You can appeal your property tax assessment. To find comps, enter your address in Zillow and filter for "recently sold." You can also use realtor.com to get an idea of what properties similar to your in your area are selling for. You should check your neighbors tax assessments against your own to see if your taxes are higher because they appealed and you didn't.
