Thanksgiving Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Today in the U.S. we give thanks for our many blessings during the year.

I am thankful that my family is still breathing. I am thankful that I have not slayed the entire bunch for the dumb stuff they do. Life is good and I am thankful for it.

I am thankful that someone had given to the president the okay to fight back. Since the people giving the okay are of the Caucasian racially category, he may actually listen. He has spent the first two years of hid administration attempting to appease the Fox News viewers to no avail.
I give thanks that he decided, at some point in the last year, to acknowledge the lost cause of attempting to convert Fox News devotees to a progressive mindset. He is starting to show a firm hand.
I am also thankful that Nancy Pelosi is still in offfice. Pardon me as I choke on some crow. I never thought the day would come that I would be thankful to have that overtly self-serving female in office. However, she will continue to hold her seat as long ad she continues to stand strong on the democratic ideals on which she campaigns. She has shown more testicular fortitude than those who carry a biological pair.
Looking back on my year I sm able to give sincere thanks Things that I thought to be hopeless, now have hope. I did not expect the president to find a backbone or for Nancy Pelosi to be the saving grace of the ddems in D.C. It has been shown to me that one should never assume life is set in stone. Things have a way if changing over a period of time. We should give thanks in each moment of our lives.

May God bless each of you in the coming year. Happy Thanksgiving.

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.
