Where is Faith

Faith is MIA in the Christian nation.   Faith has not been seen by Christian folks since November of 2008.  Well,  I should say some Christian folks haven't seen faith.   What happened in 2008? Americans elected a Black man to the office of President of the United States.    Aww hell naw! Was the scream from many households that night.  Some said with joy and some with fear.   I write to address the latter.  

Since 2008 the membership in hate groups has grown rapidly.   Gun sales have increased exponentially. People are packing heat as in the days of the Wild Wild West. Recently we have seen a call to and an attempt to end our government.  The funny thing the person leading the Americans.to dismantle the government wasn't born in America.   The things we do to ourselves.  

All of this call to arms and other such crap is fear based.  Fear causes one to lose sense of direction and sight of one's faith.  In the absence of faith, fear grows into a powerhouse of self-destruction.  If we are a Christian nation or even a nation with 3 .3 million Christian then we should know faith.   What I think we have is a religious nation that knows not how to keep the faith.   We know not the Spirit of God is with us and attempt to manifest destiny via our own designs.  

Answer in your heart this statement that has been with me since MySpace days: Religion is for those who fear hell. Spirituality is for those who have been there.  

Let go of the fear people.  Live in love.  Share in love.  In love you will find faith waiting.

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.
