I don't know what any of that was about. I got no sense out of it.
I better get out of this.

I wonder if you spent any time reading that site at all, especially "Pastor Demers Further Attempt to Stop Berachot". That particular posting bears close attention as to the claims it makes of the revenge brought about by God against the many people who have "wronged" Wade. Anyone with the least understanding of mental health conditions would see that post as nothing more than the ravings of a seriously deranged person. And if that isn't enough to convince you I suggest you send them an email and arrange an in person meeting. Just be aware of what you might be getting yourself into!!!

Well, Mr. Demers hasn't changed any since we last met. I wish he could find peace with himself.
I believe that inside there somewhere there's a nice person.
I guess I better shut up. I'm not so flawless that I can judge.
May Almighty GOD, in his infinite wisdom and mercy, bless all who read here.

I agree with the racial barrier, however the African American Community is a big part of that as well. I have encountered it many times already and I have only lived here a few months and I am not even white (I am polish and Puerto Rican with light skin) I have a kill them with kindness attitude towards things, but I see it everyday. Old money white folks still try to follow the rules of the old days and both sides sicken me. But don't put it ALL on the white families when African American families are just at fault.
Meridians big problem is lack of things to do. Nothing for the kids. I have three kids and it is hard to keep them entertained. Stores are leaving and some of the restaurant chains are horrible here. The key to keeping the young folks is having things for them to do. A skating rink is not the best thing. Meridian is supposed to be the "big City" for the surrounding areas, but I just laugh because people are still driving to AL and Jackson to do things because there is NOTHING here. Sad but true. THe fair is a joke too. The other problem is, if you aren't a local family born and raised here...you can forget about fitting in. The families here are not very welcoming and that is a very sad issue. You want more families coming here, then welcome them. I have lived all over the world and this is the most unwelcoming place I Have EVER lived (and I even lived in California-lol) Drinking and drugs are high because the kids believe there isn't anything else to do but get high and drink. Sad, but true. Give the kids somewhat of an outlet and you will see a change. It will take time, but it starts with the kids.

I lived in Meridian for 6 years and I totally agree with new comer. I wasn't from there either and I can say it is the biggest bunch of rude and unfriendly people I have ever encountered. I lived next door to a preacher and even he was rude as hell. The only thing people ever do there is get drunk and pick their noses but what can you expect when half of the town is on parole.

We're on our way, as we overran California and that state is about done feeding us, but we're not rich. We're poor and we're latino. We have many millions of gangmembers. Wait until you get a load of us.

I have just come across this site as I am looking to move into your area. I currently live in Ontario, a province in Canada. It seems like the price of homes is relatively inexpensive. I am just wondering if a person such as myself would be accepted into your community. I am coming down in July for a visit and look around for a home. Have cousins that did live in Meridian years ago but left because of the racial tension's. Being of white decent I am wondering what to expect. Could someone let me know. I am in my fifties and would be looking for some type of part-time work. Do I have to worry about any type of trouble because I am a Canadian. I love baseball, football, and hockey. Like all kinds of people, and always like to try different foods. Hope to hear from someone about my concerns.

Instead of complaining about what meridian doesn't have why don't you open a new business that gives the young people something to do instead of having then go out of town. While your at it hire employees and pay them $12/hr or more with full benefits. Seriously though, just what is meridian in need of that another town of similar size has for it's citizenry? Your complaints are useless unless they are followed by solutions that could work. If you think something is missing then there is an opportunity for you to hire people, pay them a reasonable wage and make a living for yourself. You will find it more difficult than posting negative conspiracy theories. More difficult than blaming it on the guy of the other color. I encourage you to be part of the solution and put the problem behind you. Basically, put up or shut up.

If you want to get away with a crime in meridian all you have to do is use someone elses car OR a stolen vehicle. thats it you will never be caught because idiot untrained cops dont know how to investigate( anything ) if it were not for peoples tips and snitching then no crime in this poor bunk town would get solved, in a real city they investigate crimes here in Meridian they seem not to. and the next time they want more money i will say for what, have to do your job first. Crap police work and crap cops and you get crap pay is what i say, so i repeat if you want to get away with a crime in Meridian,MS. just use a vehicle that is not yours that simple so keep robbing criminals its as easy as pie.

Being someone who lives many miles away from your city but has had the opportunity of trying to understand it I have come to this conclusion. Most of the people of this area of the world are so polarized and continue to hold your hate for anyone who is of different color, religion, or race. This is not America of the 50's where you can treat people like dogs. How you got away with it for some many years is beyond me. So now its going to come back and bite all of you that still believe in segragation right in the ass. I must say it looks good on you. Your fine city will never move forward until you closed minded trash talking weaklings go where you belong. And that is to hell in a basket baby, cause you are going down the drain. Each day the world has less and less of your types, and one day and I hope I live to see it you will be gone. You finally are seeing that a nationwide health care system will work. For all you fat cats that only care about yourselves, watch out because you are fading away This is only my opinion. And its coming from an average caucasian who thank god is proud to call Canada home, but loves your country and loves some of the changes going on. Thank you America for finally realizing that you are only one part of this planet, not the only part.

Wow the modern liberals did a mind FK on you friend. I guess you've not lived in a city where millions of illegals have flooded in and installed violent drug dealing gangs on every block. Family's houses broken into, family members threatened with knives just trying to go to the store to get a sandwhich and a pepsi, white women targeted for se_x, white males targed for assaults and robbery. I don't even know what you're talking about except from history books. The only racism I've seen here in CA goes the other way. Come to SoCal and live in some of those urban hispanic and black neighborhoods and let's see if you even survive whitey modern liberal.

I think you are making the point very clear as to what the writer was saying. And for you to say come live in some of your areas only shows tha amount of hate you are filled with. I understand a lot of it likely justified, but I know for a fact that many use it as a crutch. This way they don't have to go out and try harder, work harder, heck maybe go back to school and get an education for what interests you. Threats and violence only work and keep those people isolated from the real work that in most cases they have absolutely no knowledge of, or as in most cases just to damn lazy to get up their ass and do something. You can shoot and kill as many "white people as you wish" but keep in mind that only digs the whole deeper and deeper. Nobody wins in this situation. I have said in the past that I live in Canada and was thinking of moving to southern United States for a taste of something different. If I want to get shot at, or attacked I don't have to travel that far. Keep up the crappy work and watch your whole economy in your area go further down the sewer than perhaps it already is. Talk and threats are cheap, stand up and do something positive, something to help your community, something to get the thought process out of the shitter and back on the road to success. Until that is done, I don't care what color, or religion, or ethnic background you come from you will always be down and always be angry. Look around at the people that live nice happy lives. They don't have to be filthy rich, or live in gated communities. They only have to get up everyday work hard and try to make a positive difference. You my friend have got a grudge and hate on for some reason. Perhaps think about being positive for a while. You may be surprised at the help you get, and the results that come your way. In Canada it doesn't really matter what your color is, or your religion. You are an equal until you chose not to be. At that time you will fall hard, just like you likely have been doing for years. If you always think the same way and want things to change, well you are now dealing in possibilities that don't exist. Try harder, hellmove if you have to. But get your mind thinking in a positive manner, and smile that helps cure a lot.

That's a lot of talk but you didn't say nothing meaningful in my opinion. Your fairytales don't wash. I grew up in Los Angeles and went right through the 80's and 90's attending my friends funerals as I went. You haven't the slightest idea in your smelly hippie modern liberal fantasy what it's like to be bumrushed by millions of the poorest criminals Latin America has to offer in just a couple decades setting up gangs from one end to the other in what used to be nice safe clean whitebread neighborhoods. LA has 4 million people and only 9% of the LAUSD is non-hispanic white today. Thirty years ago it was 70%. You talk about hate but I'm not a hater... just someone who had to live through the voting behaviors of people like you. People who live far away, and think they know something, but who voted to destroy the areas I was born and raised in and now want to preach to me their self-rightous judgmental hippie shi_t.

I can say honestly that you are absolutely correct. I have no idea what kind of pain, suffering, and hell so many people in your area have gone through over the last thirty or so years. I don't know what to say, nor do I no how to stop it from continuing. Perhaps as a group of native Californians you should join together white,and black as a team. You need someone or a group to lead you in a force so large that you can end this craziness. You are correct when you say I am miles away. Although I don't live in your state I do visit it often. I have no issues with race or religion, but then that is what type of enviornment I was brought up in. I suppose I have no idea of the hate that is carried by both sides. But if the numbers you tell me are factual that its gone from 70% down to less than 10% then someone or somebody should have been raising hell a long time ago. I do hope that somehow you can come together and make your neighbourhoods better for all. It may be a dream, but I recall a great man of the 50's and 60's who had a dream and he made amazing progress in such a short time. We need a people such as Mr King and JFK to have the strength and vision to do what they say. I was so hoping your president of today could start that process, but for some reason it just isn't happening. Good luck to you my friend. I say friend because I hope that can be.

You're not a bad guy Harry and I don't dislike you. I just recognize that you're deceived. You were brainwashed your whole life with modern liberal ideological nonsense and so are a product of your environment. It might sound like disrespect but it's not. It's just a perception based on observation.

The blacks and the latinos are already against each other here in a big way. There were cases of latinos actually going out and hunting them. Pretty serious no? The few whites that remain in the large urban areas populated by millions of latinos with their crime, poverty, and gangs are retreating into gated communities or leaving the state all together.

Hispanics just tipped the balance and are now over 50% of the population in a state with 37 million people. That's more people than in your entire country stuffed into only 1 of 50 states here. Imagine if 1/2 your country were the poorest hispanics from Latin America who jumped the border since 1931. Our latino population here in 1931 comprised only 1.15% of the U.S. population.

The state is broke and the nutjobs that ran it into the ground were just voted into office. The takers are the power here. The givers see it clearly and are leaving. Two million have left already and were replaced with poor criminal illegal aliens. Soon there will be no more givers just takers in a state with more people than your whole country. Guess what happens then?

First come the riots after which... I would rather not talk about it. And it's a direct result of post-1960's modern liberal hippie boolshi_t.

The interesting thing is that the modern liberal whiteys themselves will bail the state as its sinking and fan out to find new places to repeat the cycle. That's how crazy they are. They'll actually flee and then repeat the cycle.

Oh well... it will be quite a show.
