Question, Would a convenience store be allowed to do business in Madison or Brandon without public restrooms?

I can't believe Rosalyn Anderson wasted her time on this...

@ 9:15 - Legally or by the free markets? How many Madison or Brandon c-stores have single beer buying foot traffic? The money order and Swisher Sweet crowd uses c-stores in a much different capacity than the rest of us do. Let me pay my cell phone bill, give me $4 on #2 and buy a new Chicago Bulls hat....oh now I need your toilet.

The organization is called "Respect Our Black Dollars"


Seriously, a black pressure group is calling themselves ROBD?

Is this the Onion?

I also read they demand CLEAN Restrooms. How about demanding that you don't squat and pee all over the toilet seats and floors. It's bad enough to keep a McDonald's or Walmart restroom from smelling and clear of diapers. I can't say I blame the owners. Everybody buying at a Jackson convenience store should find another place to bath and wait to pee on their own floors.

Both legally or market wise. As for the market argument, are you saying that c-stores weigh how much they can profit per customer in whether or not they will offer public restrooms? I suspect that the suburban customer base for a c-store is different from an urban customer base. But, in either case, not allowing a paying customer the "convenience" of a restroom would seem to be and interesting business decision, to say the least.

A store can also choose what it sells, be it gas, cigarettes, groceries or even no convenience items. There is also nothing that says they must provide a toilet. You are quick to compare Madison and Rankin Counties when making your case. That's wrong. Your patrons need to pee should not be compared to the suburbs needs. If you want gas station toilets, shop in the "burbs." Just leave the soap on the rope home, and flush the toilet. They usually check the rooms condition after each use, so repeat offenders are known.

There's a difference between allowing a paying customer (one who has purchased items) to use the on-site terlet and having one available for the use of a protest or picket group. I feel sure most of these people were not inconveniences in the least since they probably piss on the side of or behind the building anyway. Dumps optional.

I don't know if Rosalyn Anderson wasted her time or not. But she wastes MINE every time they put her mug on television.

This illustrates one of the basic problems in our nation today. These people want the government to save them when the people already have the power. Why do you think a store in Madison would not have this policy? It is not because of Mary Hawkins. It is because the consumers would quit shopping there. Yet these folks have bought into the myth that capitalism only works for the wealthy and they must have special help from the g'ment. Capitalism works for them too, if they use it. Now, if they are using the restroom and not purchasing anything they won't have any leverage with the owner and should not.

Clean Terlets for ALL! said...

Maybe the city can contract with Gotta Go to provide port-o-squatties at all of the underserved locations, and there can be a youth program to clean them. OR, how about pay terlets like they have in other "civilized" countries?

Just wonderin' are black dollars the same as other race/ethnicity's dollars, is there another currency I'm not aware of, what's the exchange rate??

I noticed there were only a handful of protesters. This tells me that the Jackson rank-and file-could give a shit.

Shouldn't these people be at work?

Does anyone else remember the "Far Side" cartoon entitled 'Inconvenience Store'? The little pudgy kid with the striped shirt is looking up helplessly at a single shelf of goods about 15 feet off the floor. I'm betting that there was no bathroom either.

The video was pathetic. I had forgotten how third world it is in Jackson. Sucks for you.

"This tells me that the Jackson rank-and file-could give a shit."

But not in a convenience store, apparently.

Since WHEN did this type of "customer" care about a restroom or public toilet?
Ride down Lynch St. and count the number of buildings that are being peed upon.........

I can't really blame the business owners for being tired of transients defecating all over the floors and walls, yes, I said walls, of their establishment's restrooms. If the local community wants to have public restrooms, they should act like housebroken human beings.

Respect Our Black Dollars hosts a caller-driven radio program each Wednesday. The group has many supporters who agree c-stores should provide restrooms for public use. Denial of restrooms equates to Whites-only days to ROBD.

Drive down Ellis and look at what lines the street. The Payday Loan shops are only outnumbered by the shuttered storefronts. These people are of that "you owe me" and "gibs me dat" mentality.

This is Jackson. An uneducated populace dependent upon government assistance who take to the streets to demand other people provide them a place to sh*t.

Chokwe's dream is coming to fruition.

You gotta have a place to go stuff shit in you braw-zeer so you don't got to pay for it. You cain't deprive peoples of they rights to concealment and fair trade.

Equates to "Whites-only days"? That's humorous since a large percentage of c-stores in west and south Jackson are owned by people of Indian or Middle Eastern descent.

Sadly, the woman summed it up perfectly... "If you want to do business here in our community, you owe us.... something!" *facepalm*

I stopped in a small town in South Mississippi owned by Indians. I asked to use the restroom and they gave me a key to a toilet which is where I am pretty sure they filed the movie "Train Spotting."

I had purchased gas and several other items.

I asked where it was that they used the restroom because nobody with a dime would ever use that john.

They snickered and gave me a key to their bathroom which was quite nice.

The bottom line is that the general public in urban areas will destroy things...with no feelings of remorse.

Solution? Charge $5.00 to use the bathroom and inspect it before and after they leave.

If you open a store on Ellis and have public restrooms, they'll be trashed and you owe the neighborhood something.
If you open a store on Ellis and don't have public restrooms, you are disrespectful and you owe the neighborhood something.
If you move your store away from Ellis to another part of town, you are deserting the community and you owe it to the neighborhood to stay.
If you close your store on Ellis altogether, you owe it to the neighborhood to keep operating, even at a loss.

Owe, Owe, Owe! You owe them, dammit!

I don't know if it's true, but a friend from Florida told me years ago that every business there had to have a public restroom. The conversation came up because she had stopped at a store on the coast to use the restroom and was told they didn't have one for the public. She was very surprised.

Changing the subject, I read this blog at least twice a week just to see what the good racist people of the City of Madison really think of the rest of us. To be fair, some of you don't even know you're racist and would argue that you are not. I have several white friends who make racist comments and mean no harm whatsoever because they haven't a clue that it's racist. I'm black, but I don't get upset with them because they haven't a clue and sometimes it's the way they were raised. I make stereotypical comments about white people, and they call me out on it. We're friends and that's what friends do. But truth be told, there are a lot of racist comments on this site. I pray that we all in Mississippi will just stop this silliness.

What about you, 12:26 a.m.?

What do you think about owners who open businesses in Jackson?

What do they OWE you and your oppressed brethren?

Filthy people. GO TO WORK!

All the business's need to leave Jackson, then they can go "use the restroom" on the corner or in the park. People have nothing better to do than fuss about not being able to walk in a store and nasty their bathroom up and leave. All the people that are agreeing with these IDIOTS need to let them come to your house and "use your restroom" WHENEVER they need to go. Now, do you feel differently? Just let them walk on in your home and use your restroom. Thank you.

Would you just invite people in your place of business OR IN YOUR HOME and let them trash it? A place YOU WORKED HARD for? Please answer this question? There is no argument here!

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell.
