Quick AM thought

If you follow me on Twitter(@amsmadwoman ) or FB(Libby Middleson) then you know I have been active away from my blog. I am working on a guide for voters in Mississippi. However this morning as I dressed I had the opportunity to listen to corporate owned MSM (HLN) discuss the events in Oakland.

Hold your hats for the spin: the police are victims of the protestors. WTL?!!??! I too have heard stories of the police being hit by rocks in Oakland. However I was not in Oakland to confirm. I can not confirm if rocks were thrown or if the person(s) throwing objects were protestors or undercovers.

The spin by MSM is outrages. It shows who owns what in America. There is a continued move to discredit the movement. The police rep on the show claimed the protestors had no respect for law forcing the hands of the police byte news person claimed the protest should not be overnight. I guess neither of them have been impacted by the 8 yrs of bad policy during the Bush administration. I guess the continuation of those policies under Obama has left their lives rosey. Many Americans have not been so lucky. Hence the reason we occupy.

White Boys Whine

Quick  and dirty   Star Trek  Discovery  is everything  I  thought  it would  be.  It is my hope the White  boys  chill the fuck out .  There will be a White male captain .   The Black  woman  will be of a lowered  status.  White  boys  are you appeased ?
My personal  view fuck White  boys who had their dicks in a vise  over women  of color  at the helm of a fictional  space vessel.  I shall watch  Star Trek  Discovery .  I shall pay the fee to CBS Access  with joy. If you wanted to watch OITNB you paid  Netflix . Overall  I look  forward  to the day a fictional  show  that features  women  of color  in prominent  positions  doesn't  freak out White males.  They were  so freaked  out  they compared  The Orville  to Star Trek  Discovery .  Guys chill out ,  future  happens .

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.
