Affluent Caucasian Louisiana residents break away from Baton Rouge to establish their own city

A group of wealthy white residents in Baton Rouge has successfully separated from the majority-black city to form their own suburb, St. George, following a state Supreme Court ruling. The Supreme Court voted 4-3 in favor of the incorporation of St. George in southeast Baton Rouge. This decision came after a decades-long battle and a lengthy court battle. The leader of the St. George campaign, Andrew Murrell, expressed the desire to create a better city and invited both supporters and opponents to contribute to the development of St. George. There are concerns that this segregation will negatively impact the black community in Baton Rouge. The next steps include appointing the city’s first mayor and city council members before residents can vote for new leaders in the next election cycle.
