Who will save Americans?

Who will save the Americans under attack by the police? America the land where protesting is a right is attacking the citizens. Where are the drones to stop the attacks on peaceful people protesting? Will NATO intervene as they did in Libya? Will NATO sit on the sidelines and watch us beaten and maimed like Syrians? Must we die and be under house arrest like the Syrians before the world considers sanctions against America?

What is the threat of people coming together peacefully to ask the government to stop giving preferential treatment to corporations over citizens? Corporations are not citizens. Why fear the people demanding adherence to the Constitution after wasting a day in Congress to read it?

Wake up people. Occupy is not dead. The people may be beaten but they are not dead. Occupy is not about politics. It is about people coming together to demand freedom from economic oppression that is sinking our nation while benefitting only a small percentage of the population.

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.

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.
