Occupy cotinue to stand

It is amazing how the elected officials continue to be sock puppets for the 1%. These people pretend hard to not hear what we are saying. They pretend that OccupyWallStreet happened out of the blue. Worse yet they pretend that Americans had no clue before the Arab Spring. NO. We as Americans have been well aware as to what is going on in our nation. We had shut our eyes and ears to pretend the molestation of our rights and liberties by our favorite uncle was not occurring. However, we have finally reached the recovery stage of our lives. We understand that we do not have to be victims. We can control our responses to the economic and environmental abuses against us. We now know we are not alone. We stand together ready to face our abuser in the system of universal justice that is now in play. Stand strong Occupy. There will be those who attempt to derail the progress. They will come from the inside and the outside. Take stock. Check your moral compass hourly and the movement will not die. Allow no egos to rise from the movement despite the flocking of egos to the movement. This movement is not for the moment but for 1,000 years from this moment. No more do we sell our souls for a moment's respite from the tribulation of daily life. We keep faith that the pain and tribulations will pass if we continue to stand strong. We may not see it but we must believe it. Please read the links below. Occupy Wall Street did not just happen. It is merely the people being tired of trickle down.

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.
