Same stuff different year

People we have a problem in America. Why are we still fighting the same issues we were fighting 10 years ago?

I reviewed my blog postings and articles I have written over the years. I found repetition.

I have yet to write about the correct fuel required for interplanetary travel. I have not written any articles complaining about the broadband speed from my isolated rule abode. I could not find any writings discussing the lack of space in advance mathematics classes in public high schools.

I saw several writings supporting pro-choice. There were articles discussing the modern day attempts to keep voters from voting. There were articles snout illegal wars. There were articles about government waste. I even wrote on the detriment to our economy the Bush tax cuts would have. Why am I rehashing tired articles?

Because we continue to allow the same group of clowns to represent us. I have watched President Obama butt his head against the wall trying to get change in DC. It is a crying shame his fellow Democrats have not supported him. More the shame is our refusal as a people to take a stand for our own rights. We must stop giving our rights to corporations. I look forward to writing articles based on our advancement as a nation. I am tired of writing about our regression.

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.
