Get real Liberal America. We need more than #FastFoodStrikes

December 5th 2013 SEIU was able to stage a nationwide strike in the fast food sector.  Will Congress raise the national minimum wage? Hell naw.  Was the strike without merit? It depends.  If the people who took part in the strike don't write Congress to ask for a national raise in the minimum wage then the strike was for naught.  It also depends on how many of those on strike are willing to start new corporations.  It also depends on how many of us will become patrons of these new corporations that are responsible "citizens"; not takers. 

Yesterday, I setup a project on GoFundMe.  The goal is to raise money to start a restaurant  that will pay a livable wage to 12 full-time employees while charging current McDonald's prices for the food.  Employees will also have insurance coverage that does not come at the public's expense.  Let's see if it can be done.  I am asking for donations for this project. I need 100,000 $5 donors or 1,000 $500 donors or 1 500,000 donor.  Let's do it. 

It is one thing to sit on Twitter and talk it, it is another to actually walk the talk.  Let's walk it.  Time to do something.

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.

Na…
