The Day After

It is the day after Thanksgiving here in the States. I am too stuffed to roll over to use the remote to turn on the television. I figure it is just more of the same dumb down America junk from the previous day. The MSM( main stream media) seems to be working in overdrive to dumb down as many Americans as possible.

Case in point, Prince Williams's engagement. Should his engagement makeup 20% of a broadcast? I thought his mother to be a wonderful person but I do not consider his wedding to be of national importance. The Royals are token leaders from an outdated mode of government. We as Americans should be more concerned about the PM and Parliment.

Who will design her wedding dress is not as important as the security measures being taken at the airports. Our responses to the new security measures are more important. I laughed until I cried at the news of one airline passenger wearing a bikini. We need to discuss more on what this war on terror has done to our lives.

Who will attend the wedding is of little importance to me. I am more concerned with China's visit to North Korea after the recent attack instigated by North Korea. We should want to know the location of our ships in the South Pavific. We should clamour for more information on our 20k troops in Sourh Korea.

Let it never be said that I am against a good time. I have partied with the best of them in my lietime. However I am aware of what happens when one parties too much. We should not allow ourselves to be caught slipping. We need to demand a return to real news that we can use. We need to spend more time investigating the news we are given. We need to question why the tail is wagging the dog.

The Pure Driven Snow in Mississippi

Not another gun violence blog post

It is simple in my view, we have a problem.  We must ask why are assault weapons, weapons that spray when fired, required in civilian life.  I am not against gun ownership. I do question those who are arming themselves with weapons more suited for battle than stopping home invasion.  Are these people expecting the American government to attack them? Why?

As details emerge from this latest mass shooting, it becomes more clear, we have a problem that is not solved by more guns.

Work to do

I am typing a few quick thoughts today.  This thought is about White people being real.  When I returned to Mississippi in 2002, I had planned to only be here two years.  I didn't wish my kids to be in the oppressiveness of Mississippi too long.   I like other young Black people left this state before the ink was dry decades earlier.  When I returned in 2002, I was to learn of a silent change in the state, White folks waking-up. 

They are sadly still not the majority in 2017 but they are growing daily.  Trump has helped many White people face the mirror no longer able to deny the truth.  They are now facing the results of hate without the filter of Confederate glasses.  Mississippi is a wreck and holding on to a divisive symbol of hate, our flag.  Centuries of hate in the state has left the state destitute to the point even White people are leaving in large numbers.   Those now leaving are exporting hate to other states that have done well economically by ending policy of hate.
