Egypt

This week started off so well for me. Although I am physically drained, I am still happy about Egypt. I am sadden at the violence after the peace. I see the violence as nothing more than a last attempt to create disruption by those about to lose power. It is my hope that people worldwide see this violence for what it is. We have a government stomping, beating and killing peaceful protesters. Ignore Glenn Beck's call to fear. Take the time to make a call to your person in congress to demand an immediate end of U.S. aid to the Egyptian government.

Peace does work. I am still overjoyed by last week's start of the peace revolution. I maintain hope that it will not be stopped by those seeking bloodshed.

I shall rant more when I have more brain power to do so.

As always thanks for reading.

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.
