Re: “Memphians Respond to State Punishment Over Statues

@CL Mullins
That was interesting. You should look at the commentary on the CA. Some serious self-loathing/shooting in the foot comments.

Re: “Memphians Respond to State Punishment Over Statues

One thing that I quickly learned about the other grand divisions, when I left to go to college, was that we in Memphis are viewed as inhabitants of another galaxy. That's expected. We are demographically, socially, spiritually, and culturally different. Our histories and stories are different than that of the rest of the state.

What has always fascinated me is the inability of we in this county to work together for the common good/greatness. The zero-sum desire to dominate keeps this county standing still.

Re: “Weekend Review: Confederate Statues Loom Over GOP Debates

GOP candidates for governor are wasting their time here. Their true constituencies lie East of the Tennessee River. As for Mr. Roland, he is a creature of the suburbs and the exurbs. He has nothing for the urban environs.

Re: “The Unmatched Courage of Dr. Martin Luther King

Yet a sizable portion of this nation's electorate empowered a man of no character or faith. I don't believe that there will be better days ahead.

Re: “Forward March

The interesting thing about this surge is that it took the deaths of well scrubbed, affluent suburbanite children, who understand how to access the system, to spark interest. "Only in America!"

Re: “Which History Should We Honor?

The history argument is a smokescreen. The man, the arguments and all those who support it are known quantities.
