Osama Bin Laden dead

It is amazing that he was killed in Pakistan. A country where I said in 2001 that if we were serious we would go there to get him. Instead we went to Iraq on pure bull.

I do not celebrate his death. I moan for the senseless loss of lives we have caused since 2001.

Bush once said Bin Laden was not his problem. He stated Bin Laden was the next president's problem. Obama has his resolution.

I now wait for the media to give Bush credit. Americans need to be cautious in their response. Bin Laden's death is not s mandate he is just dead. Imperialism will no longer be tolerated in this world.

President Obama is about to make his remarks.

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.
