Are we now Egypt

We must wake-up people before it is too late for our nation.

Recently on the History Channel I watched a show about the old west, “Cowboys and Outlaws”. The premise of the show was about cattle barons in Wyoming killing homesteaders. The show’s highpoint, in my view, was the description of how the cattle barons hired gunslingers from Texas to kill homesteaders. A local sheriff decided after the death of two homesteaders to not allow the gunslingers to kill anymore homesteaders. However, one of the gunslingers was able to get word to then President Harding who sent out the cavalry to rescue the gunslingers from the hands of the sheriff.

As I watched the show, I thought how history often repeats itself when people choose not to learn from history. I look at the current position of our nation. Those who have power to alter our path for the best choose not to do so. In fact they choose to do the bidding of their corporate sponsors to ensure limit access to the American dream.

The latest effort to limit the power of the people by those in power is to reduce control of Congress to 12 people. How is it we have allowed our country to concentrate power in the hands of only 12 out of the 535 elected officials?

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.
