MEMPHIS EXODUS: Why Residents Are Leaving the City Behind

YouTube player

Memphis is witnessing a significant exodus, primarily due to rising crime rates. This trend is highlighted by a local moving company owner, Phil McLendon, who reports a surge in business as residents flee to safer suburbs and other states like Texas, Missouri, and Florida. University of Memphis sociologist Elena Deega suggests that crime is a symptom of deeper issues such as disinvestment and lack of opportunity in the city. She emphasizes that meaningful investment in schools, amenities, and job creation could reverse this negative trend. However, the current scenario paints a grim picture, with the city’s leadership struggling to address these root causes effectively. This mass migration reflects a broader pattern of urban decay in certain big cities, where progressive policies are often blamed for exacerbating crime and safety issues.
