Nigga please part 10

I can not remember how many "Nigga Please" post I have written so I have label this one as 10 and shall count on from tht number. My panties are in a wad and twisted because of a recent article about Blacks in Congress being upset with Obama over Black unemployment numbers (title link). Nigga(s) please.

The article mentions something about gays and Latinos have a political voice and how blacks need to do the same. My simple, backwoods, and countryfied response is "Really?!??!!". Politics is the answer to Black unemployment? (http://politi.co/qZgksR) Hogwash and a slap of the my coffee mug to the Black "leaders" who propose such nonesense. Controlling economic resouces is the key to jobs and to havng actual political power. Get a grip potato chips. Black unemployment can be resolved very simply( education, spend less, save more, and invest in the items required by Black families for survival).

Blacks spend more and save less than any group in America(http://bit.ly/rb7zaN). There is a reason there are Koreans and Indians owning more property and businesses in predomiately Black neighborhoods than Blacks.




The idea that President Obama is responsible for creating jobs for Blacks is so backwards and demoralizing that I understand why Black America is in the shape it is. Mofo's would rather wait for a freaking handout. People wake the hell up. President Obama is no more responsible for creating jobs for Blacks than Bush. As president he is responsible for the welfare of all Americans not just Blacks. The state of Black America is on Blacks. When Obama pushed for the stimulus package we should have been knocking on the doors of local and state elected officials to accept the pacakge in its entirety. However we sat at home and complained rather than demand more of our local officals. Obama can create a plan but it is up to local and state officials to act on it. Wake up people there is a reason states' rights have become a major issue. When we sit on our collective ass and not walk to the government stimulus buffet to fill our plates we should not be surprised at the paltry plate of government etitlments our proxy bring back for us to eat. Nigga please, work with me. We should have been out full force in 2010 to vote and to get others to vote but we sat on our butts. How hot must the skillet become?

We continue to give into the HNIC syndrome which created the slave trade and has kept Hatti and Jamaica in Third World status. I am waiting for the IMF to take advantage of the issue in Sudan. Rather than come together as a people to control their natural resouces, they chose to split. The split in what was once Sudan has now created an opening to go into debt with the IMF and to lose control of natual resouces.

Our problem is not the White man or any man. We are our problem. Rappers rap about owning cars, clothes, and ho's rather than banks, cargo carriers, and highway construction companies. We sit and fret over government benefits rather than resolve to care for our own. I am willing to sleep in a tent if it means more Blacks are able to be self-sufficient. As a people we have enough buying power to invest in ourselves yet we choose not to do so. We would rather see another Black person not succeed rather than to share in his/her success. I would rather own 10% of a million than 100% of nothing. Work with me.

We need to hold our elected officials accountable. All of our elected officials. I contacted my senator about a job that required security clearance. I was up front and honest with him about my plans for the money I make from the job( bringing highspeed internet access and computer instruction to a predomiately Black and poor part of Mississippi). He was supportive and had his staff make calls on my behalf. I start work in two weeks. I could not get my Black House of Representatives member to protest with me on issues facing not just the Black community but poor Mississippians as a whole. Obama is not the problem. We are the problem. It is easy for the Congressional Black Caucus(CBC) to come out with anger against Obama on jobs. However, the qestion we should ask the CBC is why are they not using harsh words against their fellow members of Congress? Why are they not having a media blitz to promote the poliices introduced by Obama that help not only all Americans but would significantly aid the Black community. Why are they not promoting Civic education in their districits to help people understand the true nature of what Congress does. They spend more time being upset over having few photo ops with the president than they do on their actual job. Whew, Mama has spent more time on this subject than planned. It is time for me to take off my panites, wash them well and to put on a fresh pair to face the day's new round of mess.

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.
