Late Night WTH rant

It is late night or early morning. Either way I shall sleep after this post. I just had a WTH moment. When I started blogging, I expected to get some resistance. I am however blogging from Mississippi. However, I blog anyway without fear. If you follow me on twitter I state I blog without fear for I am an American. I also blog without getting paid for it. Having that reality staring me in the face, I have been forced to apply for positions within my profession.

As a courtesy to those close to me, I contact them earlier this week to let them know I would be undergoing investigation by the Feds. Sometimes in my work I work with confidential items. While I believe in freedom of information, I am not willing to put my country at risk by being loose of lips or fingers. I told the company investigate away, you will not find anything that I have not told you. I did say I could not vouch for my relatives.

My family. My loving family is the reason for my rant. I have been asked to stop blogging. I have not been asked out of fear the Feds will read my post. I have not been asked out of fear for my children. I have been asked because I raise the possibility of having the authorities around my house.

Allow me to be clear. Everything I do is not always right. My goal in life is to do what is right 100% of the time but I fall short. My grandmother always said if you can not do it in the light you should not do it in the dark( I am a nooner queen). I could not believe that I was being asked to stop my activities for it may interfere with someone's not so legal activities. WTH.


If you are reading this posting you now know why I did not put out an announcement. Sometimes I just have to write the shit out before I go crazy as the world around me. WTH

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.

Na…
