Tis be the season


I admit that our nation is not where we desire to be but the number of people shopping on Christmas' eve let me know we will get there. Before the elections all we heard was dour news regarding our economy. My faith in the American people comes from the history of this nation. We did not become who we are by rolling over and just taking it. We are a nation of innovators, can do, and will do people. The large number of people out shopping today let's me know we will do. There is hope alive in the people although our power players do their collective best to undermine our financial security for personal benefits. As each of you take time to think of this past year, keep hope alive in your hearts. Do not give into the darkness pitched nightly by the MSM. Know yourself and the history of this nation to come back against all odds. Happy holiday

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.
