Re: “Harrison, Ark., embarrasses itself again by refusing visit by delegation from Ghana

I was born in Harrison. Lived there from 1953 to 1972 and then again from 1978 to 1981. I am in the city to visit family every other weekend. The Black and Yellow Billboard is just another testament to the lack of character and extreme lack of shame the city supports. Yes, SUPPORTS!!!!!! Harrison is located in some of the most beautiful country in the world, and, unfortunately, some of the most selfish, yes racist, bigots in the world. No one in Harrison even cares. If they did, something would be done. But nothing ever will be. Because NO ONE wants too! They openly agree. All my life, all I ever heard in Harrison was, "We don't want their kind here"!!!! We don't want anything here. There has been great resistance to even allowing some businesses to locate here. Home Depot was not warmly received when they came here. Someone once said, "If you want to know what's wrong with America, go spend some time in a small town, and you will figure it out"!!! Harrison proves, beyond a sad shadow of a doubt, that this is true. And to make matters even more disturbing. Harrison likes the fact that they are the embodiment of what's wrong with America. This is the major reason that 3 of every 4 High School Graduates in the Harrison Area leave and never return. Why would anyone want to live in any area with that much hate and ignorance. It is very very sad and disturbing.
