Fans from around the world are demanding to know how disrespectful thugs were allowed to criminally deface the historical wall and sidewalk in front of Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee.
Knowing the value of Elvis Presley’s mansion, questions are being directed at Elvis Presley Enterprises and local government how security could be so lax to permit the vandalism.
Presley, who was raised and grew up in Black neighborhoods of Tupelo, Mississippi, was known for his kindness and unracial love for Blacks.
“Let me tell you the definitive truth about Elvis Presley and racism,” The King of the Blues, B.B. King said to me in a 2010 interview in San Antonio. “With Elvis, there was not a single drop of racism in that man. And when I say that, believe me I should know.”
‘People today will say things about Elvis they just don’t know about’, King commented. ‘They want to say this is black music, this is white music, this is country music. But when Elvis came along all that was suddenly washed down the drain’.
“BLM has now defaced Grave,” posted Mindi Miller, a friend of Elvis and fans across the globe. “Sad to say Biden And Kamala keep bailing these jerks out of jail … they fund their legal counsel also! Not just in Memphis..all over!”
BLM didn’t do themselves any favors in this criminal project. They just literally angered millions of Elvis fans across the nation and around the planet.
“Graceland is on the National Registry of Historic Places,” posted Don Wilson, a prominent Elvis fan, friend and Hollywood insider. “That should pull more weight for prosecution of malicious vandals.”
“These BLM thugs will do this again – if they think they can get away with it,” Wilson continued.
“In the Lone Star State, we have a saying, ‘Don’t Mess With Texas!” said Allen Jackson. “Well, BLM and their supporters have solidly damaged their cause, because nobody should mess with Elvis.”
“So security at Graceland can stop fans and yell at them but can’t stop this,” stated Billy Stallings ‘Spa Guy.’ “…this didn’t happen in minutes.. Security needs to tighten up!!”
“I am so sick of all this mess! Im tired of the lawlessness and the looting and violence in the streets,” said fan Tracy Bother. “
Now they’ve gone after our Graceland! I hope they are watching the property and Mansion cause I’m scared for it. Hope most of this country is waking up and seeing what this mob is doing to our nation and things we hold dear.”
I’m sorry but these people aren’t protesters,” commented Kenny Craig. “This is thug behaviour and vandalism! Graceland is one of the biggest reasons tourists come to memphis! I’d love to see how Memphis would survive without attractions like this. Elvis was not racist in the slightest and absolutely adored the black community, he was one of the few back in the day who listened to gospel and admired it.”
