America Listen to what they are saying

Contract with America, spells out in D.C. English what the GOP desires for the middle class, the working poor, and the poor. Today, Boehner in one of his tweets lamented the fight the Democrats put up to keep Medicare. He blamed the ruckus over the debt ceiling on the Democrats refusal to cut Medicare. (

People if you are not listening at least read. The Tea Party has managed to hijack the government of the United States. Their demands are complete protection of the assets of the wealthy. In turn they will allow us to have substandard living that is slightly above that of people who have not encountered Western civilization.

If we do not say anything then we should not expect things to change. We must say something. Last night the people in WI spoke at the polls. Although the GOP managed to win back most of the seats, the people spoke. We must continue speaking. We must speak at the polls, the dinner table, the statehouses, and in the halls of D.C., we must speak now.

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.
