Occupy Matters

Dear Occupiers please continue to occupy. Your bravery is making change in the coldest of hearts. It is true you have been shot, sprayed, and jeered by the power structure yet you have not gone under. Those who seek to kill the movement have infiltrated to be instigators of mayhem, designed to cast a shadow on people desiring to be free of economic oppression. The corporate controlled media have made even the liberals in the media still their support for OWS. Spineless Democrats are beginning to join Nancy Pelosi in walking upright. Banks have rescinded the decision to charge fees on debit cards. Republican support for the Grover Norquist pledge is being challenged by Republicans. We, 99%, can do much when we come together for the greater good. Selfishness, greed, and desire for absolute power (Koch brothers) created the mess we have in this world. May the legacy of OWS be people world wide learning to not oppress another. Continue the good fight. We who are not asleep thank you.

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.
