My Pain as Viewed by Another's Intellect

One would  think I would  be accustomed  to the overt racism  since Obama  was elected. However, tonight. I was amazed  anew. 

A study  has been  published  to indicate  riots  only serve up make America  more conservative.  I read the overview  of the study at . 

As I read  I thought  a better title  would be , " Black  people  scare Whites ".  The title ,  "If  Black people  don't sit down about these murders, they will lose more rights " could also  be used. 

It is late and I am tired.  I shall  write  more tomorrow. 

Just know the study, the publication   and the refusal  for open discussion  about these murders  say much.

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.
