Question about GOP

I have moved into being more in public life. It is a local deal but still I must be more circumspect in my blogs. Keeping propriety in mind I shall refrain from asking the rhetorical question, " Is the GOP on crack?". I shall instead state I believe the GOP is out of touch with reality.

If the GOP really thinks we will forget the cliff diving into the cesspool of far right ideology, then out of touch is the kindest way to wonder aloud about the logic. The hate and race baiting during the GOP primaries has created alarms within minorities. Please include White women as being alarmed.

Today's GOP appears to be fighting to keep wages low, to keep women out of the workplace, and to keep public funds going to private corporations. When the GOP under Glenn Beck vowed to take our nation back I had no idea they wanted pre-revolutionary America. Tea anyone?

It is imperative that we as Americans help the GOP join us in our reality. We can help GOP by remembering what is important to us as a whole. We desire more time spent on easing credit for small businesses than on wombs. We desire rehabilitation of our publics schools more than we do corporate sponsored charter school. Education should remain free without being beholden to corporations. We desire corporations operate without destroying our environment. We desire to eat food without fear of harm. We most of all desire the treatment of all men as equals under the laws of our nation.

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.
