This city is more divided than any other place I've been. This is going to keep it that way. People voting on racial lines and ignoring corruption and incompetence is why the city is a dump.


Really a shame. I'm a big Elvis/music guy, so I love Memphis.

lol. yeah, nobody has ever "come to their senses" just before they're about to die in order to clear their conscience before they meet the wrath of God.


Wow.

I wish I knew when I was going to die 2-3 years ahead of time. According to your line of thinking, Forrest certainly must have.

If we are going to water down history just to appease modern PC culture or to make a political statement

This isn't about PC or watering down history, it's about the people who live in a city are free to name the parks whatever the hell they want.
quote:

There is no possible way that anyone can fairly be judged by what society considers acceptable hundreds of years after they are dead.

Of course there can, if people judge it negatively and want to change it, they are free to.
quote:

Those who choose not to remember the past are free to repeat it.

But something tells me that the citizens of Memphis will not be forgetting the lessopns of the Civil war any time soon.
quote:

And whites in Memphis have very good reason to leave town.

I never said they didn't, but once they leave, they shouldn't have any say over what the remaining - or new residents - of Memphis decide to name their parks.

The French lost a lot of beautiful memorials to monarchs (some that had done much to advance the French culture) after the French Revolution. That's kind of what happens to the losers, their shite gets torn down and new shite gets put up.

Just that's kind of arbitrary.

Others have already mentioned the fact that the KKK would be considered a terrorist organization as well if the criteria were standard.

This is garbage. We have to remember history so that we don't make the same mistakes. That means remembering the good things with the bad things. We have to grow up and stop trying to make sure that everybody is happy all the time. We have to stop bending over backwards to make sure that nobody is ever offended. I have never supported the klan but changing the names of the parks is going overboard on the PC train and will only hurt us in the long run. We have to remember our history and not try to omit it or rewrite it or we are bound to repeat it.

This is going to get interesting because the last time the Klan held a rally in Memphis apparently the police had to go into full riot control. They started throwing out the tear gas on people.


Yep.

The grand wizard or whatever was saying "the black man is an animal unable to control his emotions"

At which point all the black people started rioting and tearing shite up.

Irony. And playing right into the klan's hands.

I hope it is better than the Klan rally at the LSU Ole Miss game in 09. That was one of the most pathetic things I have ever seen.

While true for most of his life, Forrest changed his tune late in life. He actually spent the last few years of his life advocating for Black civil rights.

Well then...why wasn't that part included in the Hollywood movie "Forrest Gump"?

The protest was prompted by the city council removing three Confederate related names from Memphis parks.


Once again...politicians keeping their heads in the sand about important matters adversely affecting the city but spending their time on a matter that won't help with anything. This is nothing more than playing for votes and in the end, probably will do just that while the city continues to see the power base move out. Sadly, our country is being run the same way now.
