I can't stand things like what the city is doing. They plan to ignore our history to appease today's PC culture.

Memphis:

Population:

•Memphis is the 18th largest city in the United States by population.
•Memphis city limits: 680,768
Black/African American population: 61.1%
White/Caucasian population: 33.6%

Do you really think this is a matter of political correctness, or the citizens of a city renaming things more in line with their values?

If the white people wanted to keep the civil war memorials to confederates in Memphis, maybe they shouldn't have moved out of town.

Italy should have rename iconic landmarks in Rome (and around the defunct Roman Empire) because they were built upon the backs of slave labor.

They should rename them if the people that live in the cities with the landmarks want to rename them.

It's not the intent of the city, but the renaming of these parts masks a page in the city's history. One is a burial place for Forrest. Memphis may not like it, but he lived in Memphis for a very long time, ran a business in town, and had a major influence on life in the south for a long time.

I'm completely against renaming any memorial for that reason. Sometimes the past is unpleasant to talk about, but this isn't just a park...it's a burial place for a historical figure.

If we are going to water down history just to appease modern PC culture or to make a political statement, then we had better get busy. There is no possible way that anyone can fairly be judged by what society considers acceptable hundreds of years after they are dead.

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

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

Considering the state of the black family in this country,black politicians seem to focus on the least relevant issues in it's defense.The fact that 90% of Shelby Co's black children are born out of wedlock is a prime example of why this is waisted energy.Maybe the Klan can bring this to their attention.

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.

Memphis elected officials need their enemies visible.

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.

Michelle did say that "we are going to have to CHANGE OUR HISTORY" .

If people in Memphis don't like the way the majority runs the town...they will have to leave or live with it.

Forward.

DHS lists them as a terror group that we are currently at war with?

Didn't Napolitano imply that the Tea Party is a threat to Natl' security? A 'terror group', in effect.

All these semantics over terror is besides the point. FYI, the Congressional Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists, which was passed on September 14, 2001, doesn't mention Al Qaeda by name.

The U.S. has arguably the strongest free speech and religious rights of nation in the world. Groups like the KKK, the Neo-Nazis and Al Qaeda aren't allowed to hold rallies in most European nations because they have strict hate speech laws. For example, British historian David Irving was convicted and sentenced to five years in an Austrian prison for the crime of Holocaust denial. However, even our 1st Amendment has limits. You can't yell "fire" in a crowded theatre, you can threaten to kill the President, you can't incite riots, you can't encourage insurrection against the government, etc. So here's my question for you: If an American citizen who is a member of Al Qaeda wants to hold a rally to peacefully promote radical 7th Century Islam without encouraging violence or insurrection against the U.S. or its citizens, should he be granted a permit?
