2011 Blessings

Before I launch into my rants against the inequality of this world, I shall take the time to give thanks my early blessings of 2011.

Yesterday I had a moment of panic as the hail and thunder rocked my home during the storms. Today, I gave thanks that we survived the storms with only some property damage. The blessing of not a life lost last night in Mississippi can not be measured. All that can be done is to share the joy and the gospel of being alive today.

The second blessing of the day came out of Jacksonville, FL. The Mississippi State Bulldogs won the Gator Bowl. They won by a huge lead leaving little doubt as to if they deserved the win.

Today exemplified the blessings that are to come when hope and faith are maintained no matter what appears to the five senses.

May everyone who reads this post find a blessing in his/her life. Joy to all in 2011.

I shall rant and rave tomorrow.

White Boys Whine

Quick  and dirty   Star Trek  Discovery  is everything  I  thought  it would  be.  It is my hope the White  boys  chill the fuck out .  There will be a White male captain .   The Black  woman  will be of a lowered  status.  White  boys  are you appeased ?
My personal  view fuck White  boys who had their dicks in a vise  over women  of color  at the helm of a fictional  space vessel.  I shall watch  Star Trek  Discovery .  I shall pay the fee to CBS Access  with joy. If you wanted to watch OITNB you paid  Netflix . Overall  I look  forward  to the day a fictional  show  that features  women  of color  in prominent  positions  doesn't  freak out White males.  They were  so freaked  out  they compared  The Orville  to Star Trek  Discovery .  Guys chill out ,  future  happens .

The Pure Driven Snow in Mississippi

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.
