I still care

I continue to ponder the minds of Romney and those who are okay with his thought processes. Admittedly I understand that Romney was attempting to pander to the "middle class" with his statements of no concern for the rich or poor. Yet, I have discovered that pandering yields little of lasting value in life. I refuse to pander. When I say I care, I actually mean it.
I have no desire to see the rich become poor for it means economic times have become extremely hard. I have no desire to see the middle class become paupers for it means there is no one to give to the poor. I truly have no desire for the poor to be homeless and hungry for it means a violent revolution. I care. We are more than the sum of Romney's thoughts. We as Americans are more than what the trust fund managers say we are. We need to make it known that we can not be bought. We will no longer vote against our best interests in hopes of one day being 1%. We will do that which is right for our nation and the citizens of our nation.

All Americans must be taken into consideration. We must be honest in our economic narratives. If KXL is the best jobs bill the GOP house can produce we are screwed as a nation. We must insist on honest dialogue. It is time we become the experts instead of quoting the "experts". It is coming out that members of Congress are vested in KXL. It seems there is no concern for America only for checking accounts. Wake up America. Wake up

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.
