Almost every town in the Delta is lawless and ran by idiots. If it were not for Cleveland there would be no place to live. Heck, Cleveland is the tax base for the rest of the county.

Here are some great numbers....Greenville is 74% minority and 25%(i know that there is a % missing) white, yet that 25% is 78% of the tax base for Greenville. Greenville was once a great city when the percentages were reversed. Now it is crime ridden and dirty. Just another example of how socialism doesn't work. Now those voters in greenville keep voting for morons like Bennie Thompson and expect things to get better, all he does is get a few federal hand outs and makes a bunch of promises and then votes along party lines for programs that were the cause of the cities decline in the first place. Jobs left because of an uneducated workforce that was more likey to sue than show up for work. Something for free is the mindset of most minorities in the Delta and it has destroyed everything that I love about the Delta or Greenville in particular. We do need a black leader in the delta, just none of the ones that we currently have. We need one that will preach self reliance. We need one that is a true Christian and preaches conservative values and doesn't look the other way when other politicians in his or her party aren't. There are plenty of white folks that fit this mold but they wouldn't be elected and if they were, they wouldn't have the political power to get anything done locally. Yeap we vote for Thompson and Obama, the type that have caused all the problems to begin with.

Ironic that you mention Bennie Thompson.
He just recently voted for a bill, that is on it's face, anti Christian.
Preachers can now legally be convicted and sent to jail for years, if one of their mindless members goes out and commits a crime, based on something that they have preached on, for which they are ordained to preach on.
It is no longer safe to be a Minister of the Gospel.
This nation has become a Communist police state,thanks to the Bennie Thompson's of the Congress and the brain dead people who keeps sending back to Washington.

Both of the previous writers either have alzheimers or have a very selective memory. Stop saying minority when you want to say Black. It's ok to say Black. And by the way, Blacks are not a minority. Non-whites outnumber whites 13 to 1 globally. white people had a 400 hundred year head start on Blacks; you all should make up 100 of the tax base as a form of reparations. You speak of Obama when it was that idiot Bush ,who has the intelligence of a grape, who destroyed your country by giving it all away to corporations in the form of tax breaks, bailouts, deregulation, and using the military for world imperialism without sharing the spoils of war oil in Iraq & the natural gas in Afghanistan. Where was your protests when Bush was raping the treasury? Bennie Thompson's hands are tied because white folks always block real change because they are so afraid the former slave will one day wake up. Who do you think those white shriners are talking about when they study about the master builder who was hit over the head and placed in the northwest corner(america)? I get so sick of all these so called christians!!! You're nothing but a bunch of hypocrites. You took slaves and seperated them from their mothers, families, culture, etc and you used to kill Blacks if you caught them reading!!! Read your history you Hypocrite!!! You just started allowing your former slaves to read the bible just a few decades ago but you call yourself christians when you see the former slave is mentally sick yet you would rather kiss a dog in the mouth and save a homeless dog than minister to the poor Blacks who probably live down the street from you. You guys are not Christians you're devils you are Satan's children and it shows in your misguided, half truth telling, blaming Blacks because your white leaders squandered 300 yrs of money made from free slaves and over a hundred years of jim crow, lynching, and denial of equal rights. Id like to see the shape of white people after over 400 yrs of oppression. You fake christians. Jesus never even called himself or his followers christians. Dust that bible you claim you believe in and read it. If you find the word "CHRISTIAN" in the bible 1 time. I'll send you a million dollars and while you're reading read Gen 15:13
And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
who do think that's referring to? What if it's referring to these Blacks you have so much contempt for? We are the only ones in history that has fulfilled that prophecy and when we wake up you better hope that you personally had been a friend of ours

Why does everything in this world have to come down to color? The problem is laziness and ignorance. No we should not have voted based on sex or color in the last election but we did plain and simple. And if you voted for him or you didn't he is YOUR President like it or not for the next four years so deal.Everyone wants to talk change but nobody wants to do anything about it. This is our country. And by our country I mean Americans. This country was founded and prospered on the religions you are griping about and it would seem things have only gotten worse since we have started taking God out of the plan. Parents have gotten lazy, yes you send your kids to school but you should make sure they are getting something from it. Teach your child respect and honor in themselves. Drive them to want to be more than, and better than you ever were. Push them to get educated on the past mistakes so that we will not continue to repeat them. Don't be afraid to discipline your child if they need it and maybe they will realize if you do something wrong you will have to pay for it not just get a slap on the wrist and big ole time out. Make them want to be more and lead by example. Teach them about gun safety. I have two children that have been raised up around guns and taught the proper respect for what these weapons are cabable of.For those of you on here bad mouthing one another be aware this is how you are and the future is watching you. For those bad mouthing "Christians", all I can say is it is not for me to judge you, what you say or how you act is your burden to bear,as I fully believe the only sins I have to answer for are mine, but I was brought up correctly with this faith as have been my children and they understand you do not kill each other, you do not steal from one another, you do not cheat on the person you decide to spend your life with, they also understand spare the rod and spoil the child. It does not say to "beat" your child there is a difference, but a good ole fashioned spanking sure let me learn that if I did something wrong I would have to pay for it- bad mouth it all you want but a faith that instills those values in children is alright with me.

I have always believed in one hundred percent equality, freedom, activism, voters rights, etc. I am now coming to the opinion that you need a vested interest in something to make it work. People who have nothing invested in the mix, that is peopole who don't/have not paid taxes, or own no real property are generally looking for and voting for the person who is going to "give" them something, who is going to expand government entitlements, who is going to take care of able bodied men and women who choose to sit idly by, who do not realize that this money has to come from somewhere and that is out of the pockets of the people that work. Look at our public education system, it is considered to be one of the worst in the state, which is considered to be one of the worst in the United States, yet we continue to elect the same people to run it, we continue to do business as normal.

Where is the problem lies with people like Tez Lecviet who believe that whites owe black a reparation. I do not know a single former slave. I do not know a single child of a former slave. My family was chopping and picking cotton alongside of these "slaves" yet I am expected to pay for the sins of white slave owners of the past. I feel that is is more my burden to fight for equal opportunity for everyone, not to GIVE anything to anyone simply based on the color of thier skin.

I have lived in several different areas of Mississippi, a few different states, and I have visited many countries. The Mississippi Delta is indeed a unique place that has problems faced no where else that has to be tasted, smelled, and most of all lived to fully understand. The haves created a culture of holding down the have nots; that the mechanization of the farming industry forced out most of the hard working laborers; and forced good hard working people into welfare and held them their through generations until what was once a last resort became a right. This vicious cycle has perpetuated a give it to me society.

Our children are born no different than the children in other parts of this great country yet we do the worst in national testing; we have on average about 10% more "disabilities" than the rest of the nation. I for one don't believe that my location makes me less intelligent or less able. I see people making choices, then complaining about the results.

Opportunity is available, but you do have to answer the knock.

you are right, whites are the minority in the Delta...as far as everything that happened 60 years ago, sorry I wasn't alive and it isn't my responsiblity, I was alive in the 70's and 80's when the places that I mentioned were prosperous.

" blaming Blacks because your white leaders squandered 300 yrs of money made from free slaves and over a hundred years "
they weren't free...blacks in africa made a lot of money selling their black slaves and tribesmen...they too squandered their money, look at Africa now.
I don't hate anyone but I refuse to ignore the elephant in the room. The blame soley rest on those "blacks" (which is the majority here) why are none prductive members of our society that milk the system. The sad thing is that those blacks that were so horroribly treated would roll over in their grave if they saw how black culture was today.
