I so afraid. Really Jan Brewer?

First, bravo to President Obama for keeping his cool.

Maybe I am a little oversensitive about code talk by the GOP however Jan Brewer has taken the cake. First we had Newt with Blacks love food stamps and Obama is the food stamp president. Now Jan " in your face finger" Brewer is claiming she felt threaten by President Obama.

First, as a Black mother of males and living in Mississippi, I am very sensitive to the 1930's Jim Crowe code talk used by Brewer. Such talk has been used to kill and to imprison Black males in the South. It is a freaking shame. It is a throw back to the ads ran in TN showing Harold Ford and white women during his reelection campaign.
Jan can deny racism but her words and actions say otherwise. I view her actions as nothing more than a photo op to display "White Power". As governor of AZ I would expect the President to meet with her. He was there to talk economy not campaign. She would have had an opportunity to speak with him later about her concerns. However she chose to have a showdown on the tarmac. Yet she is claiming in her finger pointing glory that she was threaten. Lawd she was worse than the White woman in Color Purple who became Ophelia's boss.

I wait for the next GOP code talker to take our nation back.

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.
