Obama has low poll numbers

This posting will be very quick. The president's poll numbers are low. So what?! Maybe he will listen to real Americans rather than tea bagging, media controlling, Koch brothers funded groups.

Now that we have his attention we need to use our 30 seconds to deliver our coherent message. When we deliver this message, we must stay on point. We are a diverse community with one simple message: do what is right for all Americans.

We need to engage our president. He needs to know we support him even when we are critical. We understand that he is the last stance between us and the wing-nut legislation of tea bagging elected officials( see news for Ohio's actions today). We need to bring him back into the reality of life in the United States for most Americans.

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.

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.
