O.K. I have held off on commenting on these silly articles by this guy for a while, but I have to post a response to this one. It's obvious and apparent by this person using generalities, he's trying the "Over There, there are racists, or whatever" mob mentality tactic to misinform the uninformed South East Tennessean on his silly point of view. Tax Breaks are not stealing money, taxing people is stealing their hard-earned money! Oh, I shutter to imagine what your worldview is like if you write an article and at the same time draw some odd correlation between tax breaks and racism, and schools! Are there any Klansmen in the Shelby County suburbs outside of Memphis burning crosses in the night? I don't see any, that would surely make Foxnews. A metropolitan area's right to create their own municipal school district is ultimately up to that municipality, or so it will be with this state legislation. I was not born in Germantown, but I lived there for much of my life, and I can say that I am offended that you are actually allowed to write articles for the newspaper in this uninformed and blatently uneducated manner, get a real job!
