    And people wonder why companies won’t come to Greenville for jobs. I grew up in Greenville and it was a booming town, lots of good jobs and a safe place to raise your kids. There’s too much hate in that town and soon it will be another Memphis.

    • Yeah sure that’s “real” reason companies won’t come to Greenville despite Canton Ms averaging a half dozen murders a year for the past decade. Lies like the one you told are hurting Greenville’s economy.

  3. So sad.That’s what ignorance will do to people, places and things living without knowledge of God,self & how to apply for a better life.
