Twitter Special 2162012

I write this quick blog update in honor of someone in MS with whom I have been debating the last few hours. I have family issues today so I may not be my normal polictically correct self. Please read the links at the end to understand why I have the veiws I do. This twit fest started over my simple response to a question about contraception. I am of the opinion that insurance companies that cover viagra should cover birth control as well. I do not use viagra but I pay for it as part of my base premiums. Also, these same religiuos institutions have had insurance coverage of contraceptives for years. Why such arugments now? In America we have people, who in my view, are finding reasons, no matter how off the wall, to be angry with President Obama. I would rather these people come out and say "we hate having a nigger in office" than to continue to protray being without knowledge. These people attempt to hide their racial hatred behind seemingly on the surface plausible arguements. However their arguements do not hold water when placed up against facts. This discussion with this person has now gone into why KXL should be allowed. Given the person is a CPA from Mississippi State Univesisty, I would expect this person to know energy is traded on the open market. KXL will not lower the price I pay at the pump. I would expect this person to research how many jobs would be created, the length of those jobs, and who would actually be hired to fill those jobs. I would expect this person to research the origin of the materials for the KXL pipeline. I would also expect this person to know the number of producing land based oil wells capped by oil corporations in America. I would also expect this person to know that oil in ANWAR would not benefit people in Mississippi unless they owned stock in the corporation access the oil. All that glitters is not gold. America is not in the dire straits some would have us believe. We do have a problem with corporations controlling our government. Without additoinal commentary here are the tweets with the links.

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.

Na…
