Simple request: I need to raise at least $1,300 by Wednesday afternoon to help get the word out in Mississippi that we have an election November 8th, next Tuesday. My goal is to travel the 500 miles from the Coast to South Memphis and all points in between to get the word out. The $1,300 will cover the cost of the newsprint, gas and Motel 6 Saturday night. I expect to be found at all Walmarts from the Coast to South Memphis and all points in between. I am not above going to churches on Sunday and night clubs Friday and Saturday night. Originally I was planning to just do a voter's guide online, however; last week someone said something to me that shook me to my core. This person, well read, world traveler, and highly educated was not aware of the primary being over and Mississippi having the first Black to run for governor on the ticket of a major party. My goal between Friday afternoon and Monday afternoon is to put a voter's guide into the hands of at least 8,200 people. Crazy idea to some but no crazier than the people not being aware of the fact we have an election and the initiatives on the ballot. As a staunch Independent I am not playing party politics but I am supporting candidates whom I believe to have Mississippi's best interest at heart. My goal is to give to the people factual information and my personal opinion on voting in this election. They may take the facts for what they are and view my opinion as my opinion. If you can and are willing please donate. I have a printer who can have the guide ready for me by Friday afternoon if I can get the information to them by tomorrow. Thanks for your help and for your support. Everyone must vote. It is not right for 37% of the voting age population to make a decision for 100% of the people. Republican\ Democrat\Independents we must become active in our government.

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.
