Whew!!! What a week

Recently I had issues with a password connected to my blog. However, I take the issue as a sign that America is mad(aka crazy). I was mad to expect my apps to work after changing a password and America is mad for just accepting Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader.

Ok. What can I say? Harry Reid is still Majority leader in the Senate? WTF??? Are the dems into S/M and light bondage? Why Harry Reid? Really if anyone knows why, please let me know. His re-election was not a mandate given his opponent was crazy than two squirrels on anti-freeze. Have we finally reached the bottom of the barrel in finding leaders?

Harry Reid is the reason a majority of the progressive measures taken over the last 18 months have been stalled. The man has no backbone. Geez. Really?!?! A bi-partisan movement should have occurred to remove Reid as Senate Majority Leader.

I have more on which to rant, however; for now I am just stunned.

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.
