EPA must die or so say Southern people

It amazes me how Southerners continue to work to kill themselves and their children. Georgia has joined the Southern fight to eliminate EPA rules that require companies to be responsible to the environment in the course of business. I am not willing to sell the lives of my children and their children for a dollar today. These Southerners claim it is anti-Southern to care about the environment. I say their claim is full of hog-wash. If we allow corporations to continue to bypass EPA regulations there will be no place to obtain free drinkable water or breathable air. We will find ourselves paying for those things required for life. We will pay the very corporations that polluted the resources beyond usability. People wake up. Think for a moment. Is that paycheck really worth it? http://m.ajc.com/business/georgia-sues-epa-over-1195909.html http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=375321983004 http://blogforcleanair.blogspot.com/2008/04/mississippi-official-trolls-for-other.html

The Pure Driven Snow in Mississippi

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.
