Beyond stupid

At this point I need to boil my water before drinking for something in the water is making people stupid.   Texas congressman is pushing for SNAP cuts on the reason people are buying food at high end stores.  Well hot damn.

I had no idea the second hand food store I shopped was high end.   I also suspected the fresh fruits and vegetables I purchased were over priced.   Fault me for desiring fresh fruits over the syrup packed packages at the second hand store.  

The GOP rebrand is a failure for they still have the same stupid people in office.  GOP wants a rebrand? They need new thinking people in office.

As details emerge from this latest mass shooting, it becomes more clear, we have a problem that is not solved by more guns.

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.
