    Man what! A fellow can’t even get a Big Buford without getting shot. Pretty sure I’ve been to that location but it was called Rally’s before.

      Wrong! Diversity and so-called urban culture works well in many cities across America. I have lived in some of those places. The problem with Memphis is its SES, coupled with Tennessee’s lax criminal laws.

      The amount we lost when moving back here is more than twice the amount that most families earn per year. Many others, especially those that do not have a diploma or GED, can’t find any employment. Unemployment/underemployment never has a positive outcome, no matter the group of people affected.

      Replace political officials, fix the criminal laws, hold parents accountable for truancy (like many other states that attach very encouraging fines), increase the graduation rate, and recruit new business to the city. Every successful city has this recipe.

    All you white folks sound mad but for what.? .y’all sound stupid if y’all don’t stay in the area why are you hot and bothered by what everyone else doing.?? Do we bother you people when y’all killing kids and feeling on your nephews and little cousins… Reality check Memphis been doomed before blacks got the power positions in the city, you people been killing and acting reckless since the 20s so please move out the city we don’t want y’all here…

      Yeah that’s why predominantly white cities have low crime rates, and in major cities with predominantly black populations the crime rate is through the roof…

      Keep trying ghetto trash, someday you’ll wake up and smell the Skittles.

      What a stupid reply… Tell me why in a city that’s majority black why is it a white man on every exit off the interstate begging for change with a sign that says please feed me homeless shelters are packed with whites so the question is who is gonna feed y’all we good silly white man..

    Google the statistics its more white people on welfare in Tennessee than any other race you people are a race of bums, thieves, and junkies always talking bad about other people cause y’all hate the face in the mirror.. Go find a job and put the rocks, pills, and liquor down and stop begging and making excuses…..

    Just keep driving out the tax base. You’ll get the ethnic cleansing so many blacks desire so badly.

    And you know, it just is NOT white people’s fault that blacks keep shooting one another. It’s black people’s fault.

    • Hard Truths

      And blacks with any sense are going to leave, too.

      The professional class in Memphis is largely not local.

    Welfare was created for whites. Where do you get your racist statistics frombbecause if you go visit dhs you can clearly see the different races inside and I promise you blacks are not the majority. Go see for yourself. I’m sure half of your family and even you have or is currently receiving gov benefits right now. Geesh you racist ignats are not worth debating with y’all know the truth ………
