Osceola/Mississppi county is one of the racist places in Arkansas. I never been to a town where blacks and white are literally segregated. One side of the town is white..One side of the town is black..I'm suprised the schools arent the same way. I considered moving to Osceola but quickly changed my mind when I talked to "Harshman Rentals". I'm White and my Husband is black. My Husband talked to those guys and they gave him a poor list of houses then I went in there the same day and I got a pretty nice list of houses avaliable. I think this little town has some serious race issues that people need to pay attention to!!

i agree,but drive across the tracks day or night you see nothing but crack heads crack dealers and weed pushers lil kids who should be in school.most of there parents know about it and could care less till they get caught then its because im black they say.to a newcomer it looks bad but try living here for 34yrs you would have a different outlook hell even the working class blacks are tired of it.the white folk cant help it if the projects are full of lazy blacks,and the other half of town lives off the goverment.i have to work two jobs and my wife works to just to make ends meet while the people on goverment housing live better than i do wheres my fuckin asistance.try thi stacy go to the welfare office for foodstamps or help then send your black man in hell walk out with all the help he needs.my point is racism goes both ways so talk what you know.

LOL @Lurch you sound like a sell-out blaming Black people for their circumstances. Some people cant help how they grow up the only thing they can do is change.

Bullshit. most of the folks 'lurch' was refering to could care less about change. thats the problem. if you want to do better for yourself there has to be an effort made to do so. just sitting back blaming everyone else for their problems isnt the answer.

How can you make that statement after one incident? Has that happened to you anywhere else?

Sounds more like you are nothing but a liar, especially with what you said about the harshmans the the lists you claim they gave. If they gave different lists, then it would be in violation of the law and you would have grounds for a lawsuit. Since you apparently did not file a complaint, go to a tv station with your proof, then you are nothing but a liar.

How about proving your claim and post a copy of both lists here. Just use a digital camera or cell phone, take a picture and post them if what you say is true.

you really do not know osceola that well if you think it is literally segregated.

You go down mockingbird, cherry, around the park and streets in between, then cross the road to jo street, carriage drive, alicia and streets in that area too and you will find it mixed and mixed well.

No she is not lying Harshman would rather rent houses out there to only blacks that have great jops or whites if they are renting to a black person who they feel dont need or deserve to be out there that is what it is you wont be out there. They only way you can get out there is if the harshnmans dont own the house and that is impossible cus they done bought all osceola

Harshman's don't own all of Osceola. There are a lot of other good landlords. Try them before you put Osceola down.

Man the whole city is trash. I just paid my 532.98 light bill which isnt overdue. I'm tired of people trying to justify Osceola actions this city is horrible and I wont advise anyone to move here unless they wanna get stuck. And the mayor is a drunk. Harshman rentals needs a reality check from someone it's funny how they think their getting over on people.. when they are actually being exposed in other cities. My cousin in Memphis said he would never move here because he "Heard of them". PLAN and SIMPLE they give this little town a bad name so other landlords dont stand a chance and it's people like them that makes it hard for aspiring landlords like myself to do business in Osceola.

Osceola is nice and I hate that our reputation is being slowly destroyed by "Bad business" J.W. Hall is one place I'll never buy a car from. If your late on one payment they are so quick to repo your vehicle then take you to court. I say the hell with these money hungry organizations and I've been living here 41 years. We need change for the younger generation and I pray that it will come soon. I'm about to start gathering younger people for city meetings so we can all speak about these kind of things

Harshmans own majority of all nice renovated house so shut up! Every one tryna hype up osceola why how is it benefiting you. You still paying these high ass light bills while the mayor and every other official is living lovely. I am tired of working my ass off so others can smoothly get by and then do better for their family while all the hard workers whom bust their asses cant make ends meet. OSCEOLA IS A RIP OFF TOWN THAT HAD POTENTIAL***** HAD*******
