GOP memo to MSM: Shut that shyt down

I preface this blog with this statement:  I rarely watch television because of my work hours and other commitments. 

Friday, April 11th, I was able to watch roughly 1 hour's worth of television.  Within the 1 hour of  off-on watching, I saw three attacks by women on the equal pay narrative.  These attacks were coming from commentators on "liberal" media outlets. 

Although these women stated there is no inequality in pay for women, all I heard was "Shut that shyt down now."  The GOP may not be the most savvy when it comes to new media but they have traditional media on lock.  These women were on various media outlets to stop the narrative of inequality of pay from gaining traction.

It is my view, this effort by the GOP will fail for the GOP still fails to understand women.  Girls may be gullible but women are much more complex in thinking.  It is offensive to me, as a woman, to see upper middleclass to wealthy women on television speaking on behalf of GOP against equality of pay.  The GOP will not sway women with this current plan of attack.

  The best counter attack message the GOP could offer is job protection for women who miss work because they are primary caregivers in their families.  The GOP should speak to efforts to ensure affordable child care options for working women.  The GOP should speak to the good of the ACA in lowering the cost of birth control pills.  These are only a few options available to the GOP for courting women. 

However, screaming "Shut that equal pay shyt down" via MSM is not helping GOP win the votes of women.  IMHO

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.
