He and I because of all things inbred are more than likely related.

I understand his pain. We live in rural Mississippi. Although we have low crime and a top notch school system, we do not have jobs at a livable wage. Each morning I join the caravan of cars driving a minimum of 77 miles one way to work each day. We are not driving to six figure jobs we are just driving to stay employed. Each day I watch the gas priced climb knowing the magic number that will force me to quit working. I am sure like me he has thought why is there no high speed rail in this state? Why do I earn less than people in Arkansas who are doing the same job? Yes there is frustration but President Obama is not the author of American frustration.

Mississippians who continue to vote for Tea Party darlings victimize themselves. Much of the Tea Party legislation is death to Mississippians who derive much of their income from federal funds that come into the state. It is at this point I should mention that many large companies in. Mississippi hire people not from Mississippi. Then again qualified Mississippians often leave the state on the first thing going. They desire to escape low wages and low level thinking. I understand the frustration. Yet, I do not blame Obama.

When the governor of Mississippi gives federal funds meant for the people to private industry, I can not blame Obama. When the same said governor refuses funds to create jobs in the state, I can not blame Obama. I can only look to the people of Mississippi who continue to vote into power those who seek to protect the wealth of the wealthy. Mississippians whose idea of healthcare is God will fix it will protest healthcare reform because Obama is for it. God save me from my folks; they be crazy.

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…
