Glad to see you've found something you like that you can go back to week after week after wee......
(where you never have to look further than 2 feet for a decent throwing stick)
You are always spewing how much you hate whitey. You blame whitey for everything from the genocide in Africa to you being a coward. But when it comes down to it when you want something you want a white man. When you call for a policeman do you tell the white cop you will wait for a black? What about when you go to the emergency room? If is a white doctor do you tell him you will wait for a black one? You blame whitey for you being a moron because the white schools were better. I hope when it's you time to go to that big white house in the sky a white mortician does your make up and embalming. That will really be a sight to see.
There you go again. Just because half your family has has been or is in jail does not mean the rest of the nation is like you. No one in my family is in jail. Just yours.
Maybe that is your problem Oldtimer,
you rate the quality of political leadership by the number of black or colored faces you see in the group photo rather than the success or failure of the group’s ideas, performance, reasoning and actions.
I see why those rainbow colored group shots never seem able to pick winners. They are too busy picking the right colors for the right contrast in leaders to be able to even make good decisions.
People with nothing to do but spew bullshit on the internet need a damn fine bleaching. And that's why I've teamed up with my fine friends at Kirby Woods Baptist Church in East Memphis. Our new slogan (and it's already gone viral AND trending on Twitter) "We're going to beautify your rectum for the lord!"
Oops! Sorry. Completely forgot this was a thread pertaining to racial issues. Carry on, my angry friends.

Well Crack, I am a big fan of "The Park" also, I'm at the Shell at least once or twice a week for concerts and I walk my dog there several times a week. We even occasionally run up and down the drainage ditches to get wet when it's really hot. If you ever see us, say hello, if we say "hey" back you will know we're not hallucinations.
Yes, that Ford is a family member. But, I would assume that every family has a crook or two somewhere in the closet. Why should a family with 10 siblings be different from any average family?
Diogenes, do you hear Memphians railing about the proposed tax hike in Germantown, Arlington or any of the other muni's? No, it is not our business, the same as you railing against leaders that you can't even vote for, one way or another. I imagine that Germantown has to raise taxes to avoid getting a warning from the state comptroller, just as every city that tried to run a deficit. But, you vote there, why didn't you insist on draconian cuts to services rather than a tax increase. I guess you wouldn't do that, because that would entail putting your on kind out of work, however, as long as it is those people in Memphis, cut all of their jobs out!
Diogenes, you are beginning to show your true colors.
We desperately need more young leaders in this city - white and black - like Ed Ford Jr. The old guard keeps fighting the same fight over and over again and nothing ever gets resolved.
I try to dream in color, of course, however, when I open my eyes to reality, I see mostly black vs white. It is like looking at the two different pictures of the major political parties. Republicans, at the top, are mostly overwhelmingly white, while the democratic picture looks more like a rainbow. I didn't make it that way!
When group pictures of the corporate and business muck a mucks in Memphis, are shown, what do I see? The papers in Memphis, how many actual black reporters do they have or, except one full time, how many editorialist of color do they have? The old SCS had a 47% or so minority student body, how many blacks was on the old school board?
It is like the article, Memphis has the highest sales tax in the nation. If a black writer had made that statement, I am sure, that he/she would have put it in its proper perspective by explaining what I did; that Memphis had the 7th total lowest personal tax rate of any city in the nation. A black reporter would not say a crime happened in Hickory Hill, when, in fact, it happened quite a ways away in Orange Mound. He probably would have prominently mentioned that they were shot while engaging in a criminal activity. I didn't cause Autozone Corporate to get a class action discrimination lawsuit filed against them. Just look at the picture of the corporate leaders there? I have never called any of the suburban leaders scum and other names, even though I don't like some of their policies.
So, CEBorst, what exactly are you talking about? You are talking about a dream, seems to me, while, I am talking about what I see. Come out of your rose colored dreams and look at what you actually see live!
(even though you are skipping threads here)
Oh Lord no CE, the acid back then was incredible, the park was wild and relatively crime free. My synapses are humming just thinking about it.
Truly a blessing from the Overton family. I'm sorry your hallucinogenic experiences didn't pan out.
Well, if the choice is a blind alley or a drainage ditch in Overton Park tripping on LSD, I'll take the blind alley.
I would suggest that if you continue to read what you find to be perpetual gobbledygook, then you aren't on a road to anywhere, but in a blind alley.
But thanks for keeping corporate media in business.
Thanks for noticing Crack, you know I even watch MSNBC and Fox News. I read the NY Times and the Washington Times, the Nation and the Atlantic ... but you enjoy your drive down that one way street.
Don't take it so hard Smitty, because for a moment, when he hit the water, the Tallahatchie wasn't quite so muddy.
Those were dark days in the bleaching industry. My daddy had to treat Billie Joe MacAllister in a dark alley in the middle of the night. But the bleach was defective, and Billie wound up with a navy blue ass. That's why he jumped off the bridge.
Even if they did read Kafks's work that wouldn't help. Heck, even the editors here enjoy their life as representations of characters from Kafka's "The Trial".
Man, no kidding. Seems like nothin' ever comes to no good up on Choctaw Ridge
