Re: “The Perilous Fight Over Colin Kaepernick

Food for thought: Is there much of a stretch between the actions of Mr. Kapernick (a proud member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc.) and the actions of John Carlos, Tommy Smith, Muhammad Ali, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, or Jim Brown. in their prime?

Re: “Q & A: Fred Jones on the Southern Heritage Classic

Mr. Snottingham, I'm sure the Cooer-Young Festival ans the countless other midtown and downtown focused events inconvenience many people. Not to mention the Liberty Bowl Classic. All Memphians can take one for the greater good of the team.

Re: “Who to Hate?

@ C.L. Mullins:
So true. England, France, and Germany all had colonies or alliances in the Muslim world. This nation has sizable populations of citizens of Puerto Rican, Filipino, Hmong, and Vietnamese heritage. The unintended consequences of imperial actions.

Re: “Southern Baptists Elect Memphis-Area President, Reviews Confederate Flag, Homosexuality, More

When I hear the term "Southern Baptist", my mind defaults to these monuments from my adolescence:
CAB Citizens Against Busing
BBHS Briarcrest Baptist High School
OBA Oakhaven Baptist Academy
TO Towering Oaks Baptist Academy
SBEC Southern Baptist Educational Center
Frayser Baptist Academy
Memphis Prep
Etc, etc, etc.....

Re: “Black and White and Read All Over

@barf & Thoughtful

I'm alluding to quality of content. I firmly believe that the CA can stabilize and thrive within the MSA. I find the quality of those other two papers to be superior to the CA.

Re: “Black and White and Read All Over

@ BruceVanWyngarden

If the CA really focused on quality investigative reporting, throughout the MSA, while balancing its coverage with the good and the bad, it would be a thriving metropolitan daily. The Times-Picayune in NOLA and the The Tennesseean in Nashville seem to thrive.

Re: “Two-Minute Warning

For an unfiltered look at the council, county commission, and SCS board meetings tune into FM 98.9. Draw your conclusions, and act accordingly.
