Memphis doesn't have the safest suburbs but I can tell you the safe areas feel safe, in the city and outside if it. Memphis also doesn't feel nearly as dangerous as it's said to even in its more violent areas, but I may be desensitized to the threat/level of danger due to other factors. Statistics bear out that Milwaukee is a safer city, but Milwaukee isn't a bastion if nonviolence, now...

I guess if we're judging Memphis on the quality of of its museums, neighborhoods, and shopping by comparison, I can see how Milwaukee is a stronger city. Food is a whole lot more debatable, a whole lot. This would really come down to taste and preference if style, but Memphis holds its own here, easily...

The whole safety debate can go on and on. The truth is much of personal safety depends upon the individual with lifestyle and location choices. There are safe living options in Memphis just like anywhere else.

I find Memphis incredibly intriguing. The food, the music, Civil Rights history etc.

I hope the Sterling Brown issue does not ruin Milwaukee's progress.

I was born and raised in Memphis. I love the city, and it will always be home in my heart, but I will never move back there. There's too much crime and hot weather. I live in Nebraska and tend to get along and connect with people MUCH better. So, overall I would choose Milwaukee for the cooler weather and midwest culture. But going to towards, Memphis, the people who bash the city are usually not credible at all. Those people are just people who like yo portray Memphis as a ghetto, and nothing else. I've met many people in Memphis and Mississippi and have just decided that the people and lifestyle in Nebraska fit me better.

For real.


The people in charge seem to be taking it seriously, apologizing, and disciplining those responsible. Of course Milwaukee, along with the rest of America, have a long way to go.

As a midwesterner born and raised, I agree.
