Mississippi loves GOP

Last Tuesday we voted in Mississippi to elect actual in name and action members of the GOP to control the state. In the past we elected DINOs (Dem in name only). Why do we, financially disadvantage people, vote GOP? Are we too poor to dare ask for more than $7.45/hr? Are we poor to dare say what another mouth to feed means for our household. Are we too poor to have the ear of God? Are we too poor to afford food at the supermarket which necessitate the stockpiling of guns to feed our families? Why are we voting GOP in Mississippi? I am not against GOP just what these members of the GOP plan for our state. Say a little prayer.

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.

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.
