Vote my way! or else lose your job

I found that thought I had lost earlier.   I post my thought here for it is longer than 140 characters.  I have no links for I need feedback from you.  We need to create a listing of the CEOs telling their employees a vote for Obama is a vote to be laid-off.   We need to be ready to take the intellectual talent from those CEOs to form new ethical corporations. 

It is very telling of the value these CEOs place on those they employ.  It is time for Americans to take a stand.  Voting is our right.  It is not a privilege to be earned. Voting should not be subjugated to the whims of CEOs.  We need to make our voices heard at the ballot box and where we spend our money.

  1. I disagree with the practice of employers putting pressure on their employees to vote for specific candidates regardless of what party they are trying to help. I was very disturbed to read about the Republican CEOs doing this and equally troubled when my cousin, who is in a labor union, was sent a message urging him to vote for Obama. It is coercive and workplace harassment.

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.
