After Mayor Willie Herenton's election night speech, you had to know that people would be standing in line to give their rebuttals. They are.

This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to David McWhorter, Jr. He wrote one of the more printable responses to the mayor:

"Mayor Herenton is correct, there ARE some "mean, mean people in Memphis."  They are not, counter to the mayor's comments, white racists.  They are the criminal element in the city who daily rob our children of their innocence, and our adults of their pursuit of happiness and enjoyment of a peaceful American lifestyle.  I implore you mayor, pursue the criminal element with the same tenacity you so frequently remind us you have towards white Memphians. Keep your focus mayor. There is much, much work yet to be done."

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