I have to move to West Memphis for personal reasons, and frankly I am a bit scared. mod cut do tend to keep my eyes down and stay quiet and out of everybody's way and because of the way I am people in the South are really hostile to me. I am always the bad guy because I am quiet and different. I know West Memphis' history, and I am really scared; where are the safe, open-minded neighborhoods in this town? Understand, I don't want to knock West Memphis - every town has its good and bad areas, but I really need to know where to go. Thank you in advance.

You might like Marion better, just about 1 mile North of there. It's like Mayberry! All kinds of nice neighborhoods, apartments, people, things to do, etc. Not as run down as WM. Nice city!

I used to live in West Memphis. I did not know it had a "history".

What history does West Memphis have other than the West Memphis 3? If you're worried about the town because of some murders that happened two decades ago then I don't know what to tell you. Also, I have a sneaking suspicion that, if in fact southerners are acting hostile towards you on a regular basis, it's not because you are quietly minding your own business but instead are somehow doing something to antagonize a wide variety of people who happen to live down here.
