"This is not about money! This is about power!" she said as she grabbed your wallet and ran.
Not a cargo jet. A Whale oil lamp.
Soon, there will be video of every moment, every day, and everything. Can't say I look forward to that, but it will clear the air.
Sounds like the fictional Litchfield Prison in the Netflix show Orange is the New Black when it's bought out by a private corporation and everything goes to hell, eventually erupting in riots.

@CL - I actually only heard people call it that fairly recently. I was talking about old historic neighborhoods in Memphis with AC Wharton a while back, and he told me some stuff about it. There are still a lot of places in the city where I don't know the long story, just the annotated Cliff's Notes.
I heard about the "Pic/Pick" from some friends who lived there as children. It was a very mixed and rowdy or bawdy place, very cultural.
I went ggogling and came up with this link to a book by Mike Honey, an activist I remember from my youth. But I don't think it gets too deeply into the fun side of the neighborhood.

Cross my palm with silver, and I will tell you your future...
I am currently contemplating the cosmic synchronicity which has caused Memphis to be benefitted by the murky legislative ministrations of both a Henri and a Harry Brooks. There is, I am sure, some profound message here. But I am unable to articulate it. My, my.
Interesting. You might want to reference that, CL. I don't think a lot of people caught you.
Your narrative would be better if you claimed descent from the Pick rather than Pinch.
You have to have money to be gentry, lol.
No, I'm just one of the last vestiges of Memphis Pinch Irish Culture slowly being wiped from the history books in order to create a false racial dichotomy that only encompasses black and white with no shades between, running to the front lines of war against the gentry as a spy using my not-quite-white heritage to infiltrate their formations.
Let's face it, most of the people in the Comments section don't live in Memphis.
The fact there are so few of us left is all you need to know about the Nashville Pogrom against us.
They've been so successful they've even completely destroyed our political arm, the Shelby County Democratic Committee, effectively binding and gagging us as they pillage our traditional homeland.
Besides, I haven't seen Bricky around, and I gotta take up some of his slack.
I think moving juvenile delinquents from Wilder in Somerville to Willie Herenton's treatment campuses is going to be a disaster.
So you abandoned the good people of Raleigh and joined the hipster front lines of gentrification. The realtors depend on you guys and what do you get in return? Well I guess you get out of Raleigh.

Got it, I appreciate your honesty.
Fun read, great info!

The fact is that the state legislature ran on racist tickets that expressed racist agendas popularly supported by their racist constituents.
Dumocracy/mob rule at it's best, I suppose.
However, the fact stands that contempt for Federal government is a large part of white southern cultural identity. The Trail of Tears was illegal too, but it was immensely popular among settlers of pure european descent. I have no doubt Andrew Jackson's constituents roared in approval at his defiance of the Supreme Court when he said "John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it.
To some extent this attitude of contempt for Federal law may have led to the Civil War, and seems to continue to this day. Hell, contempt for the law was one of the main reasons to come to the Wild West to begin with.
Technically quite a few wars have been illegal, in face of that a little property devaluation is a pittance, especially considering before that extra judicial lynching was the most popular policy for managing racial tensions.
"And how was Shelby destabilized? By State licensed real estate appraisers acting under State authority to reduce the value of properties based on arbitrary and unrelated factors (read: Intentionally devaluing the homes of blacks and homes near blacks)"
Two or more people acting in concert to intentionally devalue part of the citizenry's property, based on "arbitrary and unrelated" factors is a violation of a number of laws, manifestly in violation of the equal protection clause in the Constitution, and is by definition a conspiracy to break those laws. Need i point out that your constant harping on slavery ( which in contrast was legal at the time, no matter how morally wrong) is not helping your credibility?
If appraisers are all doing it, it would be the exact opposite of a conspiracy.
It would just be a standard public policy.
Slavery wasn't a conspiracy either; neither was sharecropping. Both were also state sanctioned, but more importantly, both were immoral despite being legal.
Saying the Democratic Party of Shelby Co. is falling suddenly is like saying someone with a chronic heart condition for 30 years had a stroke "suddenly".
That's about as sudden as a tree falling after hours of work for the chopping axe.
If you are right that these appraisers are intentionally devaluing the homes of black people, that is criminal.
If they are all doing it, it is by definition a conspiracy, and we must find out high the conspiracy goes. maybe all the way to the top.
If it is also being done to hurt the Shelby County Democratic Party, that is nefarious and not in keeping with our values as a people.
Or maybe you were not really serious about this being the reason the Shelby County Democratic Party fell so quickly?
