I assure you that I'm not a racist redneck who hates anybody.
I still own a place in Gtown, and spent over 15 awful years in Memphis, albeit in executive positions.
I have very good friends here..met my (x)wife there (she's from Nashville but despises Memphis, okay?). We agreed to never rear our children in such a repressive, stupid city...such as Memphis, TN.
Given any intelligent choice, I too would NOT advise anyone "moving BACK" or even "moving TO" this punitive, backward place called Memphis ! never as I said, if given a rreal choice !!! why ? when there are much better cites to live in, smaller and larger such as Charlotte, Raleigh, Austin, Portland, Nashville, Huntsville, Spartanburg-Greenvile, Tampa, Fayetteville, Carmel, NOVA, etc etc
BARTLETT ?? that sucks too...maybe Collierville, or Arlington MAYBE my choice would be to put Memphis TN in the rearview mirror, and it's NOT because of black folks OR white folks alone ! it's undereducated, parochial, poorly run, bifucated, racist no doubt (both sides), and just PLAIN BEHIND THE CURVE....if you don't think Memphis is solely lacking, you should try living in other places in the region and nation !
Nope, I would dissuade anyone from deliberately "choosing" Memphis over many other cities in the US and the south
It's not "worth" the "experience"
