MS Legislator calls for death of homosexuals

There are times I wonder if the GOP is aware of itself. Last week MS GOP leaders had their panties in a wad after Gov Perdue of NC made an unfavorable comparison of NC to MS. They went as far as to invite her to MS for a visit. I think she declined. If she is gaythen she made a wise decision. This week state lawmaker, Rep Andy Gipson ( district 77), cited the Bible in his call for the death of homosexuals. Well well what do we have now in MS? Sharia law via King James ' version?

My friends warned me about returning home. However I had no choice for my family needed me. I was reared to place family second only to God. It is with great surprise I now know God has placed a hit on me.

When lawmakers feel free to promote hate for the citizens they were elected to serve we have an issue. Calling out Gov Perdue for holding unto a stereotype of MS is the last thing MS Gov Bryant should have done when lawmakers such as Rep Gipson serve in the MS legislature.

It is 2012. It is time for humans to evolve before we are the source of our own extinction.

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.
