Watching Revolution

I enjoy television. The shows that become popular say much about the society. Shows that become cult favorites say even more. Watching the second episode of Revolution, I wondered who are these writers. What are the motives? This episode brought up a few interesting modern day American survivalist tenants. We are too dependent on electricity We cannot trust the government for the security of our families Living in the city is bad. Living in rural less crowded areas ensures survival. Government will take away your shotguns used to obtain food. A time when displaying the American flag will label you a rebel We should have at least one hard copy of our children photos My thoughts: We are too dependent on electricity. Government fails to serve when the people forget they are the government. Living in the city increase your chances of survival in the event when self-sufficiency is not possible. Living in rural area allows a certain level of freedom not found in the city but does not guarantee your survival. The Confederacy is an example of a fallen nation whose standard is seen as a rebel flag. I am sending pics of my children to snap fish now for printing. When I traveled frequently as part of my job, I would read the editorial of the local paper at a local coffeehouse/diner. I was able to learn much about the area where I was staying. What does Revolution and it 29M viewers say about our nation. Watch the series. Let me know your thoughts.

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.
