I am a former resident of Memphis and was born there. The 70's and 80's were the best times. In the 90's I had to move out along with the rest of the great white flight. I moved several times trying to stay ahead of the crap but finally gave up and moved out. If Memphis could go back to the way it was before all that happened, I'd move back in a heart beat. It was a really great place to live at one time. Now the blacks have made it a hell hole.
Fungus spreads. Bad is more influential than good and will drag it down and destroy it with pure hatred. New Albany was connected to Louisville by one bridge. Crossing that one bridge was an immediate safari into a sea of black outrage and hate. WHY all the hate, I have no idea. I was usually tired from a long workday, hoping I had a full tank of gas, four good tires, and that no radiator hose would bust before I could get back on that bridge to safety.All I know is that they have too much time on their hands and not enough real worries to keep them busy trying to improve their lives.
