All Racist, Sexist, and other Bigots are Spayed & Neutered!

That’s not Occupy Memphis’ sentiments; but racism is a huge problem in Memphis, Tennessee; even black Memphians who are in leadership positions get in on the racist bandwagon.  How bad is racism and the ever charges of racism?  Bass Pro, Memphis’ super star, is affected by its ugly presence.  There isn’t a day that goes by a high-profile race issue isn’t on the table; from sun up to sun down someone is crying racism.  Some has equated Memphis with South Africa’s apartheid regimes of the past; with black Memphians making up over 60% of the population but, having nothing to with the commerce and trade except, providing labor.  Although blacks are elected to political offices and appointed to government administrative positions still black s are lagging far, far, and further behind in trade and commercial business opportunities. 

If you’re standing please take a seat; what is about to be revealed will rock you back.  Yes, blacks are racist too!  If you can’t get this idea under your belt; ask any black person if he or she has witnessed another black person degraded, demoralized, or rejected someone because of their skin color; you’ll be shocked to know the truth.   Not only does racist hate black flesh but, they hinder trade and commerce thereby, stopping productive communities in their track.   Cities that are flourishing, doing so despite their past racist history, like many deep southern cities, might’ve realized this fundamental truth: racist slows commerce.

Occupy Memphis has taken it upon themselves to increase commerce in Memphis and bring a change to how Memphians relate with each other.  They’ve made the fight against bigotry their center platform with their powerful Diversity Caucus.  Like most occupy initiatives, they’re in your face approaches to solve problems.   Occupy Memphis and Occupies around the world wants to prove that bigotry has no place in their movement; everyone is a 99%’er if they’re working hard to make ends meet.  This unique approach to Memphis’ race problems would likely change what’s bothering the spirit of Memphis.
