Fairness Doctrine - Liberal media

Today I sent an email to my local radio station asking for a time slot.  I shall see if I am allotted time on the station. I have asked in person and via snail mail. 

I asked for a slot on the new Urban radio station that broadcasts football games of the private academies created after Brown v. Topeka....  I live in a very conservative area, hence the name of my blog.  The media where I live is much the same as the rest of the United States, not liberal.  Reagan's elimination of the Fairness Doctrine allowed conservative media owners to change the narrative presented to the American people. The people here for the most part are under informed or choose not to engage with the local media because it is skewed against free thinking.

Please wish me well.  Although I have blogtalk radio, I wish to be able to reach the people in my area as well.  Many here do not have broadband or access to a computer.  Currently offline radio and print media still have value in this area when it comes to informing the population. 

I am also looking into my own station should I need be able to get a slot on the  existing airwaves. 

Regards,
Libby

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.

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.
