The new Madrid fault is just not active enough. If Memphis were to break off and float down the Mississippi, Tennessee would be a better place!

Here's an irrelevant statement:

The park is located a few miles from the old Lorraine Hotel, where civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968.

Uh, completely different part of town. No connection between the two other than they are in the same city. They could have well said "The park is located just a few miles from Poser's house, wehere many a deer have been eaten" \:\)

When I was in Dental School in Memphis I lived in a dorm adjacent to Nathan Bedford Forrest Park.....I met my wife in that dorm and on our first date we swung on the swings and hung out there. Probably not wise as it could be dangerous in that park at night....but hey, we had been drinkin' Hate to see them change the name

Here we were back in the day....1989 I believe in Nathan Bedford Park between classes....she was in Physical Therapy School while I was in Dental School...we lived in a co-ed dorm....sorry to hijack thread a little

Arkansas might not want Memphis, but it would be an upgrade for that litter box they call West Memphis.

Did I read it right that there was something that prevented the parks' name from being changed?

If so, then the Council needs to move on to something else.

They should move on to something else anyway, like not destroying the school system.

According to Shea Flinn this morning on the radio, this was a reaction by the council to preempt the State Legislature's attempt to control from Nashville the nnaming of local parks. While a bunch of race-baiting cause-heads started this mess, it makes you wonder if the twerps at the State Capitol don't also have more important matters to deal with.....

1) The local thin-skins need to leave well enough alone
2) So do the thin-skins in Nashville

Either way, nobody's going to be happy....revisionist history wins again.

Theres a bill in Nashville that would freeze the names of all war related parks. Memphis acted in haste to change the names before the state legislation is approved in order to have control over the naming of the parks.
Sometimes when a body is unable to practice sound judgement, you just have to let them flounder in their own incompetence and ignorance. Such is the case with the Memphis City Council.
Unfortunately as the rest of the nation deals with and tries to evolve beyond racial issues and bias, the memphis city council seems to be stuck in the past and unable to grow with the rest of the country.
Dr. King would cry at the absolute reverse of his principles that dominate the city councils thinking in the city where he died.
I dont blame the rest of the state for thinking of Memphis as the armpit of TN.

Blackbelt, I am telling ya, you insult everyone who is incompetent and ignorant by comparing them to the Memphis City Council. The City Council is way way way past incompetent and as for ignorance, thye'd all have to graduate to get to the bottom rung of ignorance.

Its actually funny to see them trying to figure out what to do with schools. Most have never seen the inside of one.

It's ironic that the city council is all up in arms about a former slave owner. A large percentage of inner city blacks are still slaves...slaves to the politicians they vote for. They have no desire to educate their constituents...it's in their best interest to keep them poor,uneducated and dependent on government handouts.

Slavery is alive and thriving in Memphis,TN.

JMHO...YMMV

. That my friend, hit the nail right square on the head.... Not only are they slaves to the politicians, they are slaves to themselves. Most have no desire to be educated or perform in society. It's an easier life when the government provides for their every need.

I think it's US who are the slaves.

Who is working and having the fruits of their labors seized and given to the "Royals"? If anything they are just expanding their area of influence with the "army" of political correctness and the sword of "Racism".

They are non-contributing, political force and we, the white, Christian, worker are the ones who are ignored, looked down on and frequently mugged for more taxes for the "King".

If anyone is a slave, it's the middle class worker of this country.

The name Martin Luther King denotes racial strife to me. I object to that. I think we should change the name of the Lorraine Hotel to The John Wayne Hilton or something along those lines or would that be racist?

One guy on Facebook basically compared NBF to Hitler. He of course is all for re-naming the park. He said (censored) NBF and Jefferson Davis. He said something to the effect he just wanted to piss off the history revisionist and the Confederate apologists.

This coming from a white college guy.

Great... now the KKK is announcing a protest rally. Reportedly, "the largest [Klan] rally Memphis, Tennessee, has ever seen."

I'm sure all 9 of them will show up.

He said the biggest rally Memphis has ever seen. It might reach the double digits...like 10 or 11. \:D

I'll believe it when I see it. Just a bunch of hype.

the last rally I remember was in the mid to late 90's, and I recall a bunch of riots at the site.

I don't understand why people find the need to egg these Yankees on. Stay home, ignore them, and nothing will happen. They're just a bunch of unemployed Yankees from Michigan and Indiana anyway.

The KKK can come to town and hang with with another hate group identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center...The Nation of Islam.

They sell fruit and hand out their newsletters on street corners here in Memphis and nothing is ever mentioned about them being a certified hate group...mention the Klan and all He!! breaks loose.

But they be white...LoL

We need something to help drive up our propery value in the outlying counties around Memphis. It used to be everytime ex-mayor Willie Herenton opened his mouth it was a mad dive out of shelby county. Maybe this nonsense will help us out again. Memphis has a lot more problems they need to address then parks. I say give them all a handful of crack and a .25 auto and it'll take care of itself.
