Where do we go from here

One of my favorite songs is "Come Together". It is sad that we as humans can not come together unless death or violence is involved. As the celebrations across the United States continue , there are some who are not toasting to the demise of another but are pondering the meaning of his death. If people take a moment to remember, our lives did not improve after the death of Saddam Hussein. Heck, the lives of Iraqis did not improve after the death of Saddam. What improvements will come to us because Osama bin Laden is dead? We are not more or less safe than before his death. We are still human.

In our humanity will we now withdraw our troops from foreign lands to bring them home? Will we finally put into practice the words we recite on Sundays across our nation? Do we finally beat our swords into plows to till our land? What happens now? How do we cause it to happen? Just as Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, and Cheney came together to create Armageddon according to biblical writings can we come together to create a peace? Let's come together over peace.

  1. I believe this was the only war during my 43 years on this planet that was 100% justified. With that being said, and given that the 9/11 mastermind is back in hell, I think absolute peace is now 100% justified.

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.

Na…
