God is Great

How great is this day? I am fighting respiratory issues but am so happy at the same time. This happened without the need for foreign intervention. It was done without spending 200 million a day on arms. This revolution was of the people, by the people, and for the people. Thanks to the Internet, world leaders were not allowed to turn a blind eye to this revolution. People around the world came together to demand their leaders apply pressure to the Mubarak regime.
Today the people and not back room politics won. Egypt is not the last stop on the power to the people train. That train will pull into the station in the USA in 2012.

Continue to send love and peace to Egypt. Today is a great day for humanity.

As details emerge from this latest mass shooting, it becomes more clear, we have a problem that is not solved by more guns.

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.
