Before the election of Willie Herenton in 1991, Memphis had only white mayors.
Jim Strickland is now the white mayor of 65 percent black Memphis, a once-thriving-now-dying city.
And though the media and seemingly both political parties in Washington D.C. are committed to criminal justice reform, Strickland is now mayor of Memphis because he made fighting crime his "number one priority" during the election.
Remember, Memphis is a city that barred A&E from shooting The First 48 because it painted too nasty a picture of the type of community individual blacks collectively created.
Jim Strickland is mayor of Memphis all because he ran on a law and order platform (he wants a "zero tolerance" policy on violent crime).
Though it might seem as if the political winds blow against the idea of law and order, the reality is almost entirely in the opposite direction: the chaos of modernity will breed a force few people are even willing to understand today.
It's my belief we will soon approach a day when the community breeding criminality in America - and especially in Memphis - lose their defenders, enablers, and must inevitable account for the content of their character. For, contrary to the belief of a police colonel in Memphis, the answers to why violence is found in Elvis Presley's hometown are quite simple. [Whitehaven community and Memphis police pray to end violence, WREG.com, 10-23-15]:
A group of church members in Whitehaven marched for change on Friday night."We're out here for peace. We want peace in our community, peace in the surrounding areas. We want to pray to stop the violence," Rechell Leflore said.
Members from several churches walked down Elvis Presley and East Shelby Drive to Southland Mall.
Citizens held hands with police to pray for those killed in the Bluff City.
"The crime rates appear to be very high, and it seems like there's a lot of continuous crimes," Leflore said.
"We have been plagued with crime, and we want to do something about it," Pastor Russell Belisle said.
Pastors said the first step was being seen by the community holding on to their faith and onto signs letting everyone know their lives mattered.Our grandchildren will be shocked to learn our major cities were once plagued with such shocking amounts of violence that community marches were held to try and ward off said evils... that children were once fearful of playing outdoors because they could be hit by errant bullets fired wantonly from guns wielded by black males.
They'll never know how long we tolerated these conditions to endure, with such large portions of the United States of America uninhabitable because a population was deemed beyond criticism.
Law and order.
For society to flourish, order must be stringently enforced so the law can protect individual humans to collectively live in a state of peace.
In Black-Run America (BRA), individual black people are collectively protected by our inability to correctly note their incompatibility with western civilization, ensuring we all live in a state of perpetual disorder.
Though few on the national scene have noted the significance of Strickland's victory in heavily black Memphis, the march to the restoration of harmony is unstoppable.
Future generations will never comprehend how we allowed civilization to deteriorate to the point where law enforcement unions put up billboards warning citizens to enter a city at "their own risk," because they'll inherit a world where such horrors are but the memory of a distant past.
And such a future is birthed by those today understanding law and order are the three most powerful words when confronting the world of now.
