Anything but Casey Anthony

My posting tonight is super short. The Tea Party is using the GOP to push us back into the early 1800's. They are attempting to legislate moral codes that forces them to become behind closed doors lawbreakers.

The rights of women are being setback daily. A 15 year old girl is on her way to jail because of a miscarriage in The Carolinas. WTF?!?? We must stop this freaking madness. Pawlenty left MN in such bad shape that women will be forced to quit work to care for their children. MN is having to stop childcare programs. In today's economy who can afford to quit working?

There is a call to not fund Planned Patenthood by the same people cutting childcare. Maybe I am crazy.

We must stop the attack on women. Going back to the early 1800's is something best done in the movies.

  1. How long before a proposal requiring women to follow 6 feet behind their men is submitted? We are indeed on the path to this kind of regressive measure, believe it.

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.
