Stop Charlotte City Council from changing the name of Morrison Boulevard

Charlotte City Council Potted Plants are at it again this time they want to change the name of a SouthPark street because they believe the street is named for a former Governor who they came was racist! 

Morrison Boulevard just happens to be the business address for more than 500 Charlotte businesses. Changing the name of Morrison Boulevard represents an undue burden of monumental costs and massive logistics to each of these businesses. 



The costs alone are estimated to be in excess of more than $1,500,000.00 to rebrand these businesses, and their stationary, business cards, websites and social media accounts. 

The logistical nightmare is beyond comprehension.

Benefits of changing the name are nonexistent beyond virtue signaling and a feel good moment for a small group of Charlotte politicians and activists. 

Charlotte City Council and the Mayor of Charlotte need to abandon the idea of changing the name of Morrison Boulevard immediately.

Don't stop with morrison Blvd, take down all the Morrocroft stuff to. And the old Morrocroft mansion needs to be let go just like Latta Plantation.

Who uses stationary these days? Cycle it out. And it cost nothing to change an address on a website. Quit being reactionary. Cam Morrison is the scion of white privilege in Charlotte. His heirs have perpetuated this for multiple generations. Cam literally enslaved Black men to be used on road gangs if the could not prove employment. He was a Red Shirt- read up on NC history. Destroyed Black Wilmington in the 1898 riots.

Grandson Johnny Harris knows how to run a plantation in Quail Hollow and Augusta too. Next comes Ballantyne name.

Y’all can’t be that dumb? Changing names is pointless. Wait til the next George Floyd and everyone will say but we did all we could look at all the street names we changed!

Cameron Morrison was a repulsive white supremacist whose record is finally getting exposed. I would find another sword to fall on. Make his grandkids pay the cost for renaming the streets, they likely were responsible for them getting his name to begin with.

Morrison went beyond thinking that way, he acted on it. The 1898 Wilmington riots are not fiction, and he was involved. It helped him politically for a generation and we should not be honoring his memory. Renaming is the least Charlotte could do. I challenge anyone to name one historic or honorable thing Morrison did that was not painted by a horrific level of racism. not just the Jim Crow, raised in the South type, but the boot to the throat, keep them in their place type of white supremacy.

Politics of 100 years ago matter little to anyone other than a small group of idiots who have nothing better to do. To the few who insist on living in the past get over it. No one today cares who the road is named for or even why. The road belongs to all not just self-righteous indignant reactionary trolls.

I'm with 4:19 the street is named after Jim Morrison or if naming the street after a druggie white guy is too much have Charlotte City Council declare that the street is now named for Toni Morrison the author of The Bluest Eye. Best of all Toni Morrison is also dead.

I've talked to a couple of "people of color" and they don't see any reason to change the name. Period! One young recently promoted MCSO deputy says they need to take a serious look at who is really behind this woke bs. In his mind it is either Jail Reform or the offshoot Charlotte Uprising both are Antifa backed idiots supported by the likes of Braxton Winston.

We average two homicides, four shootings, 60 overdose calls and dozens of calls that are domestic violence related all but a couple are "people of color" so you'd think the politicians would focus on things that matter.

Promoting Morrison, and others, is systematic racism. By thrusting that in the face of Black Charlotte, the city is perpetuating the very cycles of poverty and exclusion that created the gap in opportunity and outcome we see today. Had this governor not been governor, his area of town not been developed by his family, and his name and family 'hunting land' not been developed, the more diverse area of the city would no doubt be thriving and vibrant today.

It does not matter who refuse to believe it, this is today's dog whistle racism, and it lives under our own noses. The Black youth, whether they know it or not, are held down by this same sort of institutional racism, and until it is erased from our town, we cannot begin to measure what horrible effects they had on our people.

2:34 thriving and vibrant like what Da Ford? Steele Creek? Eastland Mall? The Mayor let you idiots paint BLM on Tryon Street how many lives did that save? All it did was kill Epicenter and dozens of other businesses trying to survive COVID. Now you want to bring that same BS to SouthPark GTFOH

1843hours,

AA was having sex with multiple men at CMPD including your boys Tinsley, Garnes, Zach Cooper, Johnson, and one of the judges at the courthouse. Tinsley broke it off with her since he didn't like sharing and she started stalking him in Central. She was investigated by IA and lied about it. She said he raped her and recanted her story. She was suspended for 30 days and was eventually moved to Hickory from a west side precinct. She was dumped on 3rd until the district attorney's office said she could no longer testify in court. She was removed of her duties and terminated. Tinsley sued her for defamation of character and he won 80k from her, which she has to pay to him.

Now, she is suing CMPD to help pay for the lawsuit dues.

Kyle Rittenhouse is cleared of all charges and is about to leave the court room.

Judge Schroder yells out from behind the bench:

"Hey Kid!"

Rittenhouse turns around.

"You forgot this" Tosses him his AR-15.

Credits roll. Eye of the Tiger plays.

If you Google William Tryon (N. Tryon & S. Tryon Streets), you'll see he was not a nice guy. I wrote to the commission on street name changes about him, but they weren't interested because it wasn't a black thing.

White man, enslaved Africans in the triangle with Barbados as a colonial Englishman. Who wasn't interested in changing that name again? I will be happy to enlighten them on the history of our colonies. He was responsible for the further expansion in NC that wiped many indigenous tribes completely off the map. Tryon was well after, but in the same line, as the governors who wiped out the Tuscarora, Saponi, and Tutelo tribes. Who knows how many we don't know about.
It is all fruit from the poisonous tree.

2:04 which judge? you named everyone else. interesting conflicts.

Anonymous said...

0244hours,

Honestly, I don't know the name of the judge. The reason I know about him was because IA was considering firing her and taking away her gun after a judge she was dating called 911 saying AA was going to kill herself after he dumped her. You just can't make this shit up, brother.

Watch your 6 around people in this place. Free my nigga Tinsley!!!

Maybe all the "brothers in blue" should act like they give a damn about the life of your follow officer and quit hounding her over mistakes made when other bothers knew exactly the harm they were doing and don't relentlessly attack and humiliate her until she's dead. She should not be a cop but there are many others that belong on that list.

^^This liberal motherfucker above me right here.

This person accused our bother of raping her and she kept her job. Then you try to play her off like some victim that got taken advantage of by her surroundings. You must be her attorney. I just hope you aint sitting on my shift with this hogwarsh.

Tinsley was a shit officer. His biggest passion was fucking with the skateboarders downtown. GTFO.

Hey 1:33 I'm not either of those things and you're too dumb to read. You're probably also another liar-under-oath. Yeah, terrible that she made that false allegation and she has been exposed for it and shouldn't be a cop. I think she should be prosecuted for it. I think the only reason she isn't being prosecuted is because of the couple of hundred other perjury cases and other crimes by police officers you know damn well should also be prosecuted but have not been. It's not just the other criminals on the street who get off for their crimes in this town. Everyone does, including cops. Your defense attorneys make excuses about how you suffered enough by losing your jobs-- on the rare occasion that that happens and for the few times that anybody even gets charged. Other people that get charged have their Mamas go on TV and talk about what a good boy they are. What's the difference? No accountability.

You assholes keep trying to shame women who have sex with men but not men who have sex with women-- particularly like Garnes who's in a position of power over people and shouldn't behave that way in any circumstance. And a judge apparently who is literally making decisions affecting people's freedom and civil decisions. And he's screwing a police officer. It seems pretty well known that this person has severe personal problems the point of being suicidal so maybe stop taking advantage of that unless you're just hoping to kill her. And now you can STFU.

Same applies to all the subhuman racist misogynist bullshit posted here. Try to use your brain and consider the facts and characters involved and comment intelligently or refer again to STFU.

Since you mentioned Garnes, he should of been terminated for his racist rant to the white officers in Eastway! I couldn't care less about Aquino because her bullshit doesn't affect anything I do. Same thing with Cecil and Veronica Brown, "Who cares?"
