Republican Strategy

This morning on C. Armanpour I heard the most ridiculous statement of my day; “John Huntsman while appealing to a majority of Americans will not appeal to the majority of Republicans.” I am paraphrasing the statement for I am blind in one eye and barely seeing out of the other. Frank Luntz made my head spin faster than the “Ryan Budget Plan”.

I am seriously sitting at my local McD’s on my second cup of coffee and my head is still spinning. He, Luntz, went on to state how Paul Ryan or Chris Christie would be good candidates. I thought in my uber-liberal heart, “please let Ryan or Christie be the Republican choice.” In the spirit of competition I could not understand why if the Republicans really wanted to win they do not make the two Mormons the frontrunners. (Tongue now stuck in cheek) Seriously the only Republican candidates with a chance to unseat Obama, other than the Bizzaro Obama from a parallel universe, would be Romney or Huntsman. They both have proven that they understand the center where most Americans live.

The last words I heard from Luntz’s mouth were along the lines of negative politics. He stated Huntsman was shooting himself in the foot by being negative (honest) about other Republicans. He stated that Republican voters did not wish to hear negativity (truth). Republicans, according to Luntz were more concerned with taking down Obama. My world spun out of control and I awoke sitting in McDonalds at my laptop. WTL (What the Love). Did I just hear Luntz say the Republican strategy was to unseat Obama?!!!?? What about jobs? What about education? What about fixing our infrastructure (technical and physical)? Who are these people? Do they really hate Obama so much they are willing to sink our nation in the process?

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.
