I feel like a woman

I shall write more about the debate but I must post this quick thought.  When Mitt said binders full of women, my first thought was did he not know any qualified women at Bain?  He spent according to him 25 years in private industry (note: Mitt is over 60 where were the other 35 + years).

Seriously, he had no qualifed women at Bain?
Seriously, women only need flex time to cook dinner for their families?
Seriously, the MSM attempting to pain President Obama as rude with Candy? Seriously?

Binders full of women
President Obama's response

Keep in mind Mitt Romney is not off the mark with the GOP.  The RNC chair has stated Romney is on mark.

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.
