I agree with the first comment that there is a disproportionate amount of white people on this list, as compared to the racial demographics of our city. However, I do like that fact that we are celebrating young people in Memphis that are doing something positive; rather than tearing down the accomplishments we have made, regardless of race.
I wish this list had been more representative of racial minorities including more Latinos, Asians and Middle Easterners (because I know if we, as a city, just open our eyes, we have more minorities helping the city than we give credit for.)
