Re: “Mayor Sets New, Nightly Curfew

This inept pile of lard is declaring martial law in a free country? Jim Strickland is the second biggest mistake Memphis ever made behind MLK murdering Mayor Loeb. What a disgusting excuse for a man.

Re: “Protesters Took to Memphis Streets Over Weekend, Speaking Out Against Police Brutality

A lot of these videos can no longer be played....
Makes me wonder who's suppressing these first hand accounts of the truth.

Re: “Strickland Calls for Investigation of Police Response to Protest

Yet Strickland's police are downtown fucking up AGAIN, threatening patriotic activists with trampling by literal animals. Keep fucking around Strickland, keep fucking around and find out. Strickland has fucked up so many chances, we need a less pig headed leader who understands how not to constantly instigate riots by taunting his citizens.

Re: “Memphis Should Embrace Its True Culture ... And It’s Not “Redneck”

No, Memphis was never redneck.
Like ever.
Memphis has been majority black since the Yellow Fever epidemic in 1878, because the fever killed disproportionately larger number of whites than blacks.

"Over 90 percent of whites who remained contracted yellow fever, and roughly 70 percent of these died. Long thought to be immune to the disease, blacks contracted the fever in large numbers as well in 1878, although only 7 percent of infected blacks died."

Re: “Strickland Responds to Protest, Says He's 'Proud' of Police Response

No. This is not JUST about the three MOST RECENT killings.
OUR police are just as red handed.
This is not a Minneapolis problem that can only be dealt with in Minneapolis.
This is a POLICE problem that is the responsibility of ALL POLICE.
Why were the Confederate Traitors who incited the riot not in jail right now for inciting the riot they incited?
Because the cops in Memphis have a history of turning a blind eye to racism, when not outright engaging in it themselves.
We need strong leadership.
But what we have is Good Ol' BOY Jimbo Strickland, and his love affair with Loeb Properties who make their money with systemic police enforced racism.
And that has to stop, and it has to stop immediately, or expect much more of exactly this.

Re: “TN Legislators Advance Bill Targeting Transgender Athletes

Nashville: "We can hate trans people AND reduce public education funding? It's a WIN-WIN! Educated people don't vote for republican anyways."
