they are in depressing conditions like that. That's why I've always thought poor rural blacks have it worse than inner city blacks. I mean at least they are in cities with action going on or the tools they need to do better for themselves.

You can go through entire sections of Miss, Bama, GA, etc. with county after county of NOTHINGNESS, but it's worse in Miss.

.

Ive heard that one of the reasons why so many ppl are overweight in mississippi is because there aint much to do so ppl just eat out of boredom or just depression

If u live in tallulah then u might as well be in Mississippi. That sh*t ain't no different.
Its right next door but is like a totally different world. When we "black ppl" go over there, they usually treat everyone like sh*t and f!ghts usually will happen. Hell i even had to slap a racist mall cop there in 2009 because this n*gga followed us around the mall talking about yall have enough bags and i dont see yall buying anymore so yall could leave. We like wtf and dude really tried to pull/push me out that bi*ch. He caught like 4 solid to da head and we ran before the real cops came. Crazy thing is, i was dressed in a shirt and tie because we had just left a church in Vicksburg, MS so i didnt even look like the "hoodlum" they viewed me as

Arkansas, Louisiana, and Alabama looks like this too. The south is no joke but I still love it. It's home and it all I know. You just have to find a better way to provide for yourself...which is easier said than done.
never been north of gulfport/biloxi but if the rest of miss is like bama then sheeeit

i thought north fl/south ga was bad but god damn. it must be damn near impossible to leave some of the towns i drove through in alabama. NO upward mobility whatsoever. NONE.

in the deep south poverty is a mind state that A LOT of ppl can't shake off. Ppl too consumed with getting over the system, ghetto balling, clubbing, getting high while breeding more kids into this sad cycle. It's depressing, contagious and I see it damn near everyday. I'm really considering moving to Cali.

Its just like camden philly blacks move in trash the place whites move out and prosper... Camden nj is the perfect example which was once a great city woth many cultures soon became overun with blacks city got sh*tty whites started moving out and now its nothing but a sh*thole

if you're going to mention this say the whole truth...Camden started to decline after companies left in the late 60s...RCA-Victor, namely. The only company that stayed was Campbell's.

Once these manufacturing plants left, that's when the unemployment rose and quality of living is correlated as well.

Don't just but the blame on "blacks", it is more of an economic issue, but maybe that would be too hard for you to understand..

CLINTON, MS- Mississippi News Now is reporting that Clinton, MS is cutting off access to Jackson, MS by closing down a main road that connects the two towns. The reason why is due to the influx of criminal activity from Jackson that has plagued Clinton in the last few years. Clinton, MS is a majority White city with only slightly more than 20 percent of its population being African-American. Jackson, MS is a majority African-American city with close to 80 percent of its population being African-American.

Mike Cashion, an Alderman from the Ward 6 district created the plan after residents complained of the high crime rates. He states, “Overwhelming support. They realize too, this isn’t going to be a cure all. This isn’t [going to] stop everything but it is a great first step.”

Over the years, residents have complained that crimes such as drugs and robberies were spilling over into their neighborhood from the high crime town of Jackson.

One homeowner Jim Coker supports the town’s initiative. He told Mississippi News Now, “Just since the day before Thanksgiving, when our house was broken into, I’ve lost track of how many but it’s up around eight to a dozen.”

Coker also mentioned that his home wasn’t the only one broken into, but several of his neighbor’s homes were burglarized in the last several months.

Cashion, who says he doesn’t liken the division to the Berlin Wall told Mississippi News Now, “All we’re trying to do is close the street to reduce a.ssess into the subdivision…that simple.”

He also states that the closure won’t prevent all criminal activity. To make the city of Clinton much more safe, the police department was recently approved for over time, and security and surveillance cameras were installed throughout his neighborhood and other places in the city.

If the plan goes through, Eastside Drive’s access to Shaw Road in Clinton will close in a few weeks. Shaw road divides Clinton and Jackson.

They didnt say clinton was all white, just majority white. According to city-data.com, Clinton is 33.8% black. That's still majority white and sure, that would be considered a "black" city in most states, but not the deep south. Plus, 33.8% is still a hell of a lot lower than the 80% black that Jackson is. I'm willing to bet a higher % of those blacks in Clinton are more educated (tolerable) than the low income blacks in Jackson to those white people. So they are trying to close this road to cut back crime to this one specific part of Clinton, which probably wont work anyway.

In my area the city of Warner Robins, Georgia (only 30+ % black, military town, suburban) does not want to be a.ssociated with Macon, Georgia (60+ % black) so much that they were able to get themselves to be officially classified as their own metro area...even though the cities are like 10 mins apart or closer dependin on what side of town. It bugged them that much to have ANY a.ssociation.

Considering how spread out and rural Mississippi is. It's possible there could be only one major road to Jackson. Closing it off could reduce the amount of influx dramatically.
Clearly you've never been to Jackson or Clinton, MS....its not spread out and or rural. There are around 12 routes into Clinton on either side.
