Jackson is not Delta[edit]

The reference given as supporting the placement of Jackson in the Delta is not true nor is any mention of the Delta in the citation. The authoritative "Hinds County Geology and Mineral Resources" by William H. Moore makes no reference to the Delta or the Yazoo River valley. The extensive clay of the Yazoo geological formations underlie the county, but that is not the alluvial deposits of the Yazoo River or the Mississippi River which are further to the west and the north. The Delta historians have mentioned Vicksburg as the starting point of the Delta in this state. If you travel north from Jackson on US 49 you will see the Delta at Yazoo City. http://www.worldcat.org/title/city-map-welcome-to-yazoo-city-mississippi-where-the-delta-begins/oclc/5407618&referer=brief_results — Preceding unsigned comment added by Comingdeer (talkcontribs) 18:22, 5 December 2014 (UTC)Church of the Rain (talk) 19:22, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Crime[edit]

The 14th annual "City Crime Rankings: Crime in Metropolitan America" ranks Jackson as the 23rd most dangerous city in America.[21] —Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.215.62.40 (talk) 01:08, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Downtown Jackson Renaissance subsection[edit]

Which are you trying to add and which ones are you removing and why are you removing them? - ALLST☆R echo 05:32, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

Downtown Jackson[edit]

I'm trying to add more information to Downtown Jackson Ressinance. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cassandra Davis (talkcontribs) 22:45, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

But instead of adding more information, you're removing entries. Why? - ALLST☆R echo 01:50, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Downtown Jackson Renaissance[edit]

I got rid of the projects that are already complete, and added the ones that are not yet complete and that are underway. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cassandra Davis (talkcontribs) 15:59, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

no mention of jackson being the home to retards?[edit]

no mention of this town being the home to retards who cancel high school reunions and subject kids to religious weird shit over the intercom system. is that not encyclopedic?

jackson or jackson city?[edit]

I have lived in jackson most of my life and never heard it called "Jackson City." This is the opening line of the article and it should be right. I am removing this unless someone has a problem with it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Marcusyoder (talkcontribs) 18:57, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Civil Rights period[edit]

The assertion that Jackson was under martial law for one year following the University of Mississippi riots is not sourced and I believe is not accurate. It doesn't really make any sense, since the university is in Oxford, a hundred miles or so to the north, so why would Jackson residents have removed street signs to hinder the Army?

Too many lists[edit]

This article has too many lists - does every radio station need to be listed, attractions listed twice in Downtown and Historic sites, a lengthy newspaper history? I summarized the material under Redevelopment, as those projects would always be changing. Please consider summarizing other areas of the article.Parkwells (talk) 14:00, 7 November 2011 (UTC) Jackson lies well outside the Mississippi Delta.70.233.128.116 (talk) 19:48, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

Editing[edit]

did some reorganizing to bring material on the Gold Coast, nightclubs, etc. earlier into main body of article in chronology, under a sub-header of "Jackson's Gold Coast", as it was the area where many musicians made their mark. Also noted liquor and gambling legalized, and changes to the district from integration. Made a section on "Representation in media" - for the songs and movies, grouped them together, adding tours of the city related to popular book and movie, The Help. Noted city is on "MS Blues Trail" in Lead. Editors - this is still supposed to be a narrative article; please use the word "and" rather than the sign "&" in the text. Added material on legal challenges to MS constitution, and info about congressional districts - where Jackson is included.Parkwells (talk) 18:49, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Timeline of Jackson, Mississippi[edit]

What is missing from the recently created city timeline article? Please add relevant content. Contributions welcome. Thank you. -- M2545 (talk) 08:26, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

Parkville?[edit]

The link to the citation failed. I searched manually for the reference. However,a reference to 'Parkerville' is not found as cited. The citation notes the name 'Lefleur's Bluff' rather than 'Parkerville'. I have corrected this once before so it might be vandalism.Church of the Rain (talk) 01:34, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
