People Hold it Together

My dear Americans please do not lose your ever loving minds. Having Obama as president of the United States of America is not Armageddon.  Seriously we have survived worse Pearl Harbor,  Civil War, and George W. Bush. 

In my own life I am surviving day in day out setbacks.  My faith in the guidance of Christ in me keeps me going. I have a FUBAR situation now but I am still going.  I do not allow the noise outside myself to quite the inner and ever loving voice of Christ within me. 

Today's media enjoys keep our nation hyped up on fear. I am here to tell you it is possible to let go of the fear.  I tell you what I lived. I went from $250K to foodstamps. However I am still living.  We can do it, together.  Stay positive.  Think without fear.  Be ready to be a rock for another person. We can do it together.  

Certain politicians and faux news outlets need to stop the manipulation of fear. Shame on the churches, synagogues, & mosques enabling the growth of fear.  You holy ones should be the ones to remove such weeds from your fields.

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.
