No state is majority Black. Mississippi used to be majority Black until the waves of the Great Migration.

I know in many parts of Mississippi city wise is black, I know in a few parts mid-state they do whatever it takes to run government.

In doing that, you got the problems you got, anyone ever seen Lumberton?

look at this enough and you see why Mississippi is in the shape its in. Lumberton Informer

Thats just 1 city, this is going on in alot of places in Mississippi, its not just exclusive to this state though, but this problem is more wide spread here.

I read - or started to read - the article. I gave up when I gt to this gem:
I said I wasn't going to go on about the police department, but we all know that their goal is to economically burden anyone they deem as a threat, and hopefully, their Gestapo tactics will backfire on them.

We all know? Really? These types of reports dot the landscape on the Internet. Things we all know. No need to offer any evidence at all, because "we all know".

Baloney.

And now we are asked to understand an entire state by looking at one town, population 2,000, handpicked by 'someone'..

Corruption exists everywhere. Every state. It exists on a local, state, and federal level.

Take Memphis, TN for example. I only selected Memphis because it is 30 minutes from where I live, and I hear about the things that go on there on a daily basis. Memphis government is corrupt and inept, it's schools are failed, dead people are voting, councilwomen are getting drunk and pole dancing at parties, 20+ year mayor Willie Herenton partying with strippers, etc.

Does anyone think the entire state of Tennessee is that way based on Memphis?

As someone else said, every state has racist people.

Why such an ignorant question? I hope you didn't ask if they had indoor plumbing there too. Too many folks must live in their own bubble and not get out much. I guess I don't get it because I've traveled all over the US for work. Guess what, every state has rednecks too!

So do other states. In Misssissippi, most of the hate groups are either KKK or Black separatists.
