Kill my seed before it grows

Sheriff John Brown. Stand up. Stand up for your rights. As I channel Bob Marley, I feel those words as never before in my life. Tonight I attended a meeting to plan OccupyMS. I was shocked to see 35 people out to plan in MS.

During the course of the meeting several people made statements that echoed the words of the establishment to kill a movement. OccupyWallStreet is confusing the MSM (corporate controlled need). After attempting to ignore the movement, they are now scrambling to define the movement. After being unable to label a leader or a single cohesive issue, they are now attempting to discredit the movement.

It is for us the people to not depend on MSM to define our movement. America in the last 12 years have created enough ills for us to protests a full year 24/7. This movement is not about a single issue. It is about the collective economic and social oppression of Americans. When roughly 1% of a population controls 89% of all resources and 99% of the people do not have adequate access to 60% of those resources, do not be surprised when the 99% of the people take to the streets.

It is important that those of us in the movement do not lose focus of the goal: a better life for 100% of the people. There will be those who will seek to infiltrate the movement to kill it. Love those who come to deliver death to the movement for only love can take on hate. Speak words of authentic love to those who approach or demean you. Be your authentic self. We are a diverse nation and this movement is by diverse people. Our strength is in our diversity and in our ability to come together on one accord: a better life for all people.

Keep this movement going. Let it not be killed by those who fear people coming together for greater good for all.

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.

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.
