Power to the people

This weekend I got a tweet regarding something said by the president. The president is to have said, " it is for government and business to lead America into the future". I replied to the tweet, " I disagree with the president. It is for the American people to lead America to the future.".

I worry that we the people have lost our minds along with our collective will. I can at no point remember turning over my life to government dictates. I am dang sure I have not given into corporate mind control.

We need to awake to the daily warnings. Recently corporations have been given rights as individuals. The Republicans, supported by Fox News, used every bit of misinformation available to get people to vote against the good of the people. There is now a call for school choice rather than improve local schools.

We the people must lead this country. We must let the courts know the difference between individuals and corporations. We must let political parties know the power is with the people not a political party. We are too independent to be summed up by one party. We must take back and improve our local schools. We do not need to bus our children across town to get a quality education.

We can do it. We did it before we had corporations. We did it before we had mega school districts. We can do it now. Our time. Our power. Our future.

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.
