"What is really sad is that it appears the Memphis minority majority have no problems with Ms Brooks and that is another reason why Memphis is the laughing stock of TN!"
This is a great example of why there is no future for decent, hardworking folks in Memphis / Shelby County. Given half a chance the miscreant electorate majority would vote this corrupt piece of trash back into office.
Look what the did with corrupt Rickey Re Peeter. As soon as he got back from the Federal Joint after serving his sentence for taking bribes for his votes on the Memphis City Council, ... they voted him right back into the same office. He promptly took more bribes and was sent back to the Federal Lockup.
Folks, believe your eyes, and not the crap the liberal media is feeding you.

"It was mildly amusing to watch Ruby Wharton - Henri Brooks campaign manager - say on Action 5 last night that she can't imagine what all the fuss is about, and we haven't yet heard these statements in context. Hookay."
Do not forget, this is the bedmate of yo mayor. What does this tell yo?
I'll volunteer what it tells moi, ... It's going to be nothing but harder to be a law abiding, productive white taxpayer in Memphis, Tennessee in the future.
In addition to the garden variety knuckle dragging nitwits you have populating government, you will have some real haters joining them. Best not to be in the City, or if yo have an option, the County.
Anyone who can't see what's coming is blind.
Wonder if she would be happy if the government offered all Americans of African decent a first class ticket to anywhere on the Africa continent and $50,000 to all who renounce their US citizenship and agree to not try & re enter the USA???
Oy Vey, what a deal I have fo yo!
The ability to post anonymous comments encourages a much better, and more honest, discussion about almost anything.
Posters can express their opinions on almost any subject without concern of retribution by employers, other commenters or whacko readers.
Of course, you will have the occasional nutsack who will take the opportunity to make "off the wall" derogatory comments about race, sex, etc., but, ... so what??? That's what the blog watchdog is there for, ... to delete off color comments and block troublesome posters.
It's obvious discussions are much richer, and deeper, when anonymous. I mean, ... I'm not in the market for a "bravery medal" for speaking my mind. If required to reveal my identity, I'd likely opt not to post. Either that, or my post may not reflect my true opinion on a subject.
Good grief, ... this one has absolutely no management experience, or much of an education to qualify him for this job.
He's been a sycophant for local demoncrats for most of his adult life.
Folks, it's an insult to be asked to vote for this critter. He brings nothing to the party.

"I didn't detect any semi-literate individuals in the group. But then it was just a "little ole" Black A.M.E. church in the heart of South Memphis."
Look a little harder, ... they're not hard to find, honest! The vast majority of SCS, aka old MCS, grads are not prepared to do college level coursework. These are the graduates, ... add to these the ones who do not graduate and you can see the local job market does not offer much to employers.
You're all correct, ... tough times and tough decisions in the near future.
All the sins of the past 25 years of the City administrations' avoidance of hard decisions, keeping their friends & cronies fat, not making required contributions to various plans, setting up special plans for cronies (retire in 12 years for appointees) not using the county to collect past due taxes, treating city government as an employment agency, etc., etc., ... is coming home to roost.
Tennessee has both eyes on the knuckleheads now, ... so they have to do things properly. Folks, you put these losers back in office over & over & over again. I hope you like what you see.
