Don't Let Money Rule You


This week there was much gnashing of teeth after the SCOTUS , stated more money could be put into politics by businesses.  On the surface it looks horrible, however; it is not the end of the world.  IMHO the only thing this decision means it is imperative to get out the vote in 2014. 

This election cycle hinges on enough people becoming awakened and informed.  When people let go of their fear and hate of other Americans, progress happens.  We have the current repressive government because of the grip of fear on Americans.  It is time for it to end.

It is time to assuage those fears and to get out the vote.  If each person desiring more progressive legislation spoke to one person per day, no amount of gerrymandering or money will allow this nation to regress.    Preach to the people, "Don't sell your voice".   We only have to look at the Afghani people.  Under threat of violence they voted.

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.
