YOUR TURN: The Mayor riles people up

Memphis Mayor Willie Herenton does know how to get people riled up. The "Your Turn" mailbox was all about Herenton's meeting with the city council and the Memphis Sexual Assault Resource Center.

This letter from William Sappenfield is similar to many others we received.  In Sappenfield's words:

"Haven't we learned by now that Willie Herenton is one of the one of our city's biggest exploiters of racism and bigotry?  He has played the race card very effectively over the past fifteen years. You will notice while he said he has become very familiar with the rape center, he offered no explanations or solutions.  Memphis will never become a first class city until racism on all sides is put behind us and the color of one's skin is no longer the basis for elections or problems within our community."

That's William Sappenfield's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
