More Greenville, NC

This article about MLK signage in Greenville, NC, seems fairly routine. But the comments from readers that follow at the end are interesting.

Like this:

I just moved to town to expand a business enterprise. But when I read about political resources spent like this I feel this is a community divided.


I feel that this is ridiculous. MLK is becoming very generic. It’s everywhere! How about honoring someone local? I really feel that this could easily become a n issue of race. It’s like a test. How much will you put up with?


I was in Greenville last week and spotted the MLK sign right off the bat. Maybe some need glasses or maybe they need to get a life and stop complaining about everything that has been given to them already. Not all races get free everything, some have to work for it. I’m sick of the blacks complaining in the Pitt area. They need to get a job. Oh by the way, pull up your pants and learn how to talk.

And this:

The root of the problem is that a street was renamed and after the fact people realized that because of the new name it might hurt the revitalization(Gentrification) project that is going on in that area. Plus many of the business owners on Fifth street objected to the name change.
