Welcome to the views of a real American liberal.
This blog features the random rantings of a Mississippi mad woman. Rush Limbaugh is the inspiration for this blog. If an overweight, fake far-right, and cigar smoking raving idiot can have a voice then so can an overweight, real far-left, and Wal-mart shopping Mississippi mad woman.
Occupy until all can no longer deny the imbalance on this planet. We are better than what we have become. Occupy.

Say A Little Prayer
Today as I have for several days, I felt a little guilt. The guilt I felt was over the joy of not having another storm heading towards my state. I am thankful that Mississippi is being spared Irene. If it sounds selfish it is. However, I have watched the people here carry on after storms and floods. I know the people here are very resilient but another Katrina after the year of storms we have weathered thus far this year would be a bit much for any sane mind left in the state.
I send out a prayer for those in the path of Irene. I solicit the prayers of others for the people in the path of Irene. Positive thought in my view can do much. Keep positive thoughts flowing for those facing Irene.
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 .
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.
