Warning: Racist Rant

Also language not befitting a lady. I shall update my blog format early morning. As for now I shall say a few things about Black folks.

1. Is Obama president of Black folks alone or the United States?

2. Although his absentee father was from Kenya does Obama owe all of Africa a personal debt?


In the last few days I have had to put my foot down in some nigga issues in my own life. It is a coincidence how in the last few days I have read two stories of Blacks upset with Obama. Get a freaking grip potato chips. He is a Black man who is President of the United States. He would be derelict in his duties as president to only propose legislation to benefit one particular group. As Blacks we have long complained of presidents who only sought to benefit one particular group. We must rise above such thinking.

My African peeps who are not happy with the FLOTUS visit; forget you. Those of you in the States dislike American Blacks anyway. One would think we sold you into slavery. You sit on natural resources that despite years of human habitation still rivals those found in the Amazon. Yet you continue to rape, kill, and to sell other Africans into slavery. A visit from Obama will not fix you ills. More money will not fix the generational issues in Africa. What will fix the issues is a change in the mindset of the people. Stop allowing other countries to take ownership of your natural resources. Stop waiting for a savior, be the savior you need.

I have my days when Black people work my last. After all I have and am still going through reading of how Africans were upset with Obama for not doing more because his father is from Kenya, well that was the straw. As I read that article all I could think was "really".

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.
