The words we use

Someone in the media is in hot water for calling the president a dick. In all fairness I have said worse about Dick Cheney and George Bush. Well Cheney.

I do not think anyone should be in trouble for call president a dick. However I have yet to see President Obama do anything that warrants my calling him anything other than Mr. President.

He has not started any unwarranted wars. He has not fought to keep the American people in financial bondage. He has worked to change the tax code to keep the American economy viable.

Why would anyone call Obama a dick is beyond me. IMHO we have had people in power who were true dicks. They managed to screw the people of America and the world so badly it will take a decade to feel normal.

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.
