A thought about Mississippi Primary

I have had a thought running around in my mind all day. In my hometown( redder than most counties) there were 4k votes in the Dem primary and 439 in Rep primary. I am thinking there was a large amount of crossover voting yesterday.

Also there are too many reports of errors at the polls.

We need to ensure this election is not rigged to keep the state red. There is a reason I am despondent over not having a progressive running for Secretary of State and State Auditor. We must start now with our game plane to keep the elections honest. Also we must get people to the polls and check the voting rolls for accuracy.

Just my thoughts. Something is at play and we must be ready for it.

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.
