My Occupy Night

My Occupy night lasted 2 seconds. Someone whispered rats in my ear and I left. Give thanks to those Occupying. I arrived at the park a veteran of camping in the wild and having slept in a few subway stations. I was ready for police, police dogs, night sticks, fire hoses, and jail. I was not ready for the parade of rodents.
Jackson Mississippi is the same as NYC, Chicago, and Atlanta in regards to what happens when the lights go down. So blessings to all who are occupying to regain our quality of life. Thank you.

I shall say, the police presence at the park while I was there was kind. They were doing safety patrol without harassing. Then again the governor and Lt governor are attempting to cut retirement for public employees. PERS is one of the reasons I thought to brave the night at the park.

Please stay strong on this mission. If you are such as myself answer the call from those Occupying. If you cannot occupy you can support those who do. Send food and first aid supplies. Be ready to bailout those arrested. We must support this movement. Corporations may have billions but we have people.

A remark from a conversation I had this morning about the movement. Think it over.

Yes they are trying to kill Occupy. The Dems will try to kill it if they can not control it. The Repubs trying to kill it for the truths it shows. Those on the plantation want it dead to save Masa

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.
