Memphis has had it's share of crappy mayors, but some middle class whites still live in the city. Mid town and downtown are in decent shape and east Memphis is still home to most of the wealth in the county.
Even the old money in Jackson has packed up and left.....not just the middle class.
Jackson is in far worse shape than most cities in the region. I'm afraid it's still going the wrong direction.
