Confusion in my world

I remember in 2010 hearing ads about Republicans creating jobs. I am confused as to what job legislation they have introduced since 2010 elections. Today House Republicans wasted time and money to pass a bill they knew would go nowhere in the Senate. Our president introduced legislation that would put this country on track from the wrongs of Bush.

It seems to me the Republicans are sinking the economy to gains reelection. Why would I vote for someone who is willing to see me homeless to save his/her job? I am confused. Republican sinking of the stimulus at the local level has not gone unnoticed. I shall not be confused when it is time to vote.

As details emerge from this latest mass shooting, it becomes more clear, we have a problem that is not solved by more guns.

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.
