Xmas War

When will Americans wake-up to the lack of a war on Christmas. Today, I am thankful McDonald's is open. What other religion in America closes the post office? What other religion in America closes schools? How many public schools in America have Christmas plays? There is no war on Christmas. The "war on Christmas" is nothing more than a construct by the media to maintain the numbers of those who vote Republican. It sole reason for existence is to create a victim mentality to increase the numbers of the Republican party. Looking at "Christians" in America under a microscope very little Christ can be found in the Republican party (IMHO). Knowing scripture and attending church become nullified when the death of someone without insurance is celebrated. There is a war on Christmas but it is not against the holiday or the closure of public and private concerns for the holiday. The war against Christmas comes when people give into the demands of Madison Ave and eschew the dictates of Christ to be "thy brother's keeper". Pepper spray for a video game? Churches debating if to have Sunday service because Christmas is on a Sunday? Where is Christ, America? The Christ of whom we hear so much as being the reason for the season. Would the Christ who has not asked for any war or wars to save Christmas, be happy with those who attempt to create a need for a war? Neither political party has a monopoly on Christ or Christianity. It is wrong for anyone to claim to be the sole holder of Christ or Christianity.

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.
