Nation Building in a Mixed World

The events unfolding in Egypt are more about a world without borders than just simple freedoms of a people. As I watch the United States and Israel sit on the fence watching, I laugh. I laugh at world leaders who are not getting IT. IT is the realization that the Internet has made it a small world after all. The United States and Israel sit in worry that a Muslim, I hate Israel regime, will replace Mubarak. The truth is those people sleeping and marching on the square are not looking for such a regime. If you were to ask those in the square they would say they do not live to see Jewish people dead. They would voice a strong dislike for the racist Israeli policies that keep non-Jews oppressed in Israel.

World leaders must understand we are a small world. The Internet has allowed us to communicate beyond physical, sexual, religious, and political boundaries. Our communication has allowed us to acquire a view point that extends beyond our noses. Our worldwide friendships over the Internet have us seeking peace more and war less. Only those stuck in the 19th century manifest destiny mentality spend their hours in fear of war. Those ready for the new century desire peace and the freedom to enjoy that peace.

Revolution is here. It will go worldwide The old guard must prepare to leave. The people are tired of war, fear, and death. The revolution will not be stopped with lies and tricks. Only freedom, peace, and respect will end it. No more are nations being built. In this new world it is about the people.

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.
