Subject: Virtual March on Wall Street this Wednesday

Hey,

Have you seen what's happening on Wall Street?

Thousands of people are occupying the streets to demand that giant banks pay their fair share of taxes, end the foreclosure crisis, and create jobs. The protest has been running for two weeks straight, 24 hours a day and it is only getting bigger.

I just signed up to join a virtual march planned by MoveOn.org and Rebuild the Dream on Wednesday to show my support.

Will you sign up too? We're trying to get hundreds of thousands of voices of solidarity for the protesters to show just widespread outrage at the Wall Street banks really is.

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.
