Re: “Rocking and Rolling with the Willie Herenton Campaign

As someone who was born in Memphis and lived there for the first 30 years of my life, I must say I am disappointed, dismayed and disillusioned that the city I still call home cannot rise above race. It has been twenty years since I lived in Memphis. In that time, I have seen the city stagnate under the weight of unresolved racial discord. In no small part, Willie Herenton must accept responsibility for that. The lack of vision and abuses of power that ultimately drove him from City Hall should have ended his political career. The fact that Mr. Herenton has any credibility as a candidate says a great deal about the voters in Memphis and their inability to move beyond the cronyism that has characterized local politics for a hundred years. I feel sad whenever I hear that the city I love chooses more of the same one election after another. Perhaps this year will be different.
