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.

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.
