To start off I WILL NOT name names. But it has come to my attention that during the Executive (Secret!) Session on Tuesday the city council will consider renaming Cleveland Street to "Martin Luther King Boulevard."

I have heard this from several wives husband and even children of current council members! I have it on good authority that these shadowy figures will deny it in public, UNTIL IT IS PASSED!!

What has this town come too? I half to drive my oldest son to ballgames down that street!! How will I explain the name change? How is he suppose to understand when at our house we celebrate James Earl Ray Day??!!

If you care at all about our community and your Christian values you will be at City Hall at 7 p.m. on Tuesday August 7 to PROTEST! We cannot allow this to be done in our town and we cannot allow the our city council to do it IN SECRET during the same meeting they're going to turn the high rise over to Moreland Collage!!

Thank you and I lookd forward to seeing you at the meeting.

Youre talking about the same people who steal from are homes and make our volleyball players pregnant!!! You better think again if you don't think it can happen to you on MLK, which use to be a safe place to raise your kids.

LOL!! Grover Cleveland served too non consecutive terms as preisednt of the USA. ONLY PREZ ever to do that. What has Obama done???? much less MLK.

Is that true? What's your source?
If so that's about the dumbest thing Ive heard from this town..

And to answer "derrrr," you are incorrect on your assumption. Not everyone wants "black peoples money" and then leave town. I'd prefer to stay 100% segregated.

That's exactly why Franklin County don't get any big businesses. Because of being racist. No company is going to put their business in a place that does not welcome different ethnic groups. Because they have to hire a certain percent of minorities. I'm talking big companies. So don't ever expect Franklin County to grow much and sit back and watch Williamson and Jefferson county grow.
thats right

You are a moron! White people never steal or get high school girls pregnant right? This town is majority white people and full of white trash, believe me the handful of black people in this community are not our biggest problem. I look at people based on character not the color of their skin. I cannot believe you call yourself a christian! FYI...I LIVE ON CLEVELAND STREET AND IT DOESN'T BOTHER ME. Worry about your own street.
Are you kidding me

First of all, it's MORTHLAND College - you might consider signing up for English 101.

Second of all, who gives a shit what the name of the street is? You are aware that we are living in 2012?

Both of these rumors are FALSE - idiot troublemakers crack me up. Educate yourself quickly or your three children will grow up to be as ignorant as you.

I'd pay money to see you show up at any city meeting and "address your concerns".

I don't let my kids out after dark, so why would I do that. I don't even do that on my own street. Not because of black people, but the white thug boys.

This is not true so stop spreading rumors. This town had people stealing before black people were here. It is a trashy white town with many problems before they came here. I agree this racism is a big reason this town hasn't grown. At least others coming here and getting girls pregant is mixing te gene pool up a little.
