It’s been the summer of protests, and now another one is planned.

The Coalition of Concerned Citizens, including Black Lives Matter protesters and others groups announced their plan to “Shut Down Graceland.”

Protest leaders say the mass demonstration is planned for 6:00 PM Monday. They said they specifically chose Graceland because it is Elvis week and they know it will raise awareness.

Leaders say they also chose Graceland because “it demonstrates one of Memphis’s most common forms of financial inequality and because the site has ties to…the death of unarmed teen Darrius Stewart.”

We feel like we still haven’t been answered,” said Frank Gottie, a community leader. “They’re givin us the runaround.”

    I heard Sheriff Clark from Wisconsin speak and he said the BLM is an evil or something like ideology. He is right.

    I think that because these blacks want to hold on to their past so desperately that we should give them their wish.

  • Webb

    Don’t Mess with Elvis Fans…

  • Warren

    The Local Police should line the Street with Buses equipped with handcuffs on every seat I bet they do not have a permit for this demonstration take them to a local Stadium & keep them for the whole week pending Trial & Fines

    I don’t see how burning your own neighborhood helps prove a point. How looting your neighbors business’s does anything to prove a point. Stealing only costs consumers more and makes any group look like common thieves using the shooting as an excuse to steal and destroy. How attacking and burning before the facts are even out can help. The difference in finance is because most people work and build up their lives, not getting more and more from the government and expecting more to make it even. It’s not the taxpayers job to keep us in a high life style and we can sit at home collecting a check. I’m poor and have had my lights, and water cut of not to long ago, it’s my fault not the taxpayers. It’s a problem I need to fix not the government’s. Get a clue people Hillary is lying about all this free stuff, this country is in debt more money than most can count. To keep borrowing to give stuff away can only lead to everyone’s demise.

    I think we should give all blacks reparations, a new home, a car and a yacht!
    Is there anything else that I have missed? Oh, of course 5 million dollars in their bank account so they can maintain this lifestyle! Life is tough and it’s tougher when your stupid!

    • Rodney Steward

      I can come up with a lot cheaper way to handle this, and it only cost about 35 cents a head!!

    • The Redhawk

      How about a ticket back to Africa. There is a lot of good Blacks, but these are just thugs. They probably had no father figure.

    The BLM organization is nothing but a radical and racially based group who’s only goals is to push racism. MLK would be ashamed of their actions and the black community should not stand with their radical actions. There is no justification for what they do and their complaints of black lives being lost to shootings falls on their own communities responsibility as more black lives are lost by black shooters than Hispanic, white and police combined. Their focus should start in their own communities first where it would do the most good.
