West Tennessee is definitely the epitome of negativity, racism, hate, envy, greed, entitlement, and unappy people. The above mentioned are unhappy and let their above mentioned qualities make those they encounter just as unhappy. Pitiful to see such a large population on this never ending hamster wheel of self loathing and despair. It's unfortunate that only maybe 1 in 20 people that you pass in a public place smile back. The following message is for these people who clearly frequent Topix:
If you don't hear it with your own ears or see it with your own eyes don't invent it in your small mind and say it with your big mouth.
Truly, the more time you spend building yourself up (making yourself a better person or educating yourself) the less time you'll spend putting other people down.
Good luck and may God be in your minds.
