Doggie Wants the Ball?

This rant will be quick. Am I alone in noticing how much coverage has been given to the Oscars vs the amount given to Wisconsin by the MSM? What is happening in Wisconsin is a wake up call for the rest of the United States. The Wisconsin moment and it's outcome is vital to the United States as a whole. Yet, even today I am being forced feed Oscar news. The different spins have been too many Brits, nit enough Blacks, and Charlie Sheen. I love movies. I normally see movies first run with my son; snacks and all. I love movies. However, I do not think or feel in my heart the Oscars should be the lead story when we have basic American rights being threaten by the government.

We have a problem and the powers that be are dead wrong if the think the Oscar hype will take my gaze off Wisconsin. We must not be distracted by award shows and celebrity drug issues. We must continue to press our elected officials to serve us and not to oppress us.

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.
