This is a wonderful event sponsored for the whole family entertainment.
Re: “Herenton's rhetoric ignored inconvenient verities and turned almost entirely on the notion that, although there were other candidates "of color," he was the only black in the race.”
Such a comment shows how strong racism is in this city. A white man would be a racist if he said the same thing about white.
Hoorah for Herrington. He became mayor by running on the racism platform. He is attempting to maintain his office by keeping racism alive and strong. We need a good mayor that discourages racism; a mayor that supports all the people and all the businesses despite the color of their skin.
I wish there were more true caring Americans like author Cheri Delbrocco.
I am also mad as hell. The Bush Administration and supporters are responsible for more innocent deaths than the murderous Osama bin Laden. Also, Iraq country is a little larger than the state of Texas. Have anyone ever wonder the amount of US property damages against Iraq when we invaded them? US taxpayers are paying hundreds of billions of dollars for rebuilding Iraq to no-bid contractors. My hunch is that we are paying much more for rebuilding than the material damaged we did. Perhaps this is what the Bush Administration war in Iraq is really about.
I AM ASHAMED OF MEMPHIS
It is a tragedy that there is so much hate and discrimination with so many Memphis black ministers. How did Memphis ministry sink so low to misguide and puppet their flock in this grave injustice? These ministers are far removed from teaching the word of God and the lessons of Jesus. They should lose their ministry license. I am ashamed of Memphis for the religious guise scene.
"MAN TURNS INTO ZEBRA. LIVE!"
Is it just me, or doesn't the headliner at a glance have the appearance of labeling a human being, as well as the headliner being overly racist with the intent of dividing the citizens of Memphis? What are your first and second thoughts when you read this headliner “Man turns into zebra”? My first thought was "man turns into an animal". My second thought leaned towards the black/white racist line embedded in this city.
MAD AS __HELL TOO!!! Place Blame Where It Belongs.
I would not place all the blame on the Bush Administration. Bush could not have orchestrated near the amount of damages, financial loss, and senseless deaths against Iraq and America if it was not for the Republican Party majority support. The person who continually votes a Republican into office or votes for a Republican to retain an office in Congress is partially to blame.
Evil lurks plentiful in holy guises (i.e. wolfs in sheep clothing)
The Southern Baptist Ministers must have gotten their ministry license through sending off from an ad in the back of a comic book for $2.00 ministry licenses. These unholy ministers teach their personal opinions as God’s word, thus using God’s name in vain. It is no wonder educated people are leaving the church in droves.
