In response to gbbarnes,
It's pathetic that folk like you can't seem to understand that not all "Memphians" cast their votes for candidates based upon skin color, but rather those with similar views/ideas. It's evident that you're still with the backward ways yourself. You assume that everyone in Memphis is either a crack addict with a grade school education at best. Your post pretty much sums up your reasoning which is far from the truth. Most people, regardless of race, want a leader to move them forward. Unfortunately, this city is bound for doom because the leaders are buying into this racial divide moreso than looking at the big picture, the placeholders of Memphis jobs. If it's too poor of a city for you to reside, let alone, play in because the extreme crime stats, then why risk driving to and fro daily for our decent paying jobs?? BTW, just because a person is of a different race, not a preacherman, but some good ole boy with managerial experience, doesn't mean that he/she has your best interest at heart either!
