These B’s Ain’t loyal

Fuck’em.  I am not begging anyone to vote for Hillary.  If someone must beg or plead with you for you to vote, forget you.  You don’t give a fuck.  You just want to bitch, moan, groan, and be seen.  However, I am off target. 
Hillary Clinton was not/is not required to give jack shit to Bernie in regards to the DNC.  However, she did.  Bernie appointed Cornell West to the Platform Drafting Committee.  Cornell a man who has been vocal about his distaste for current President Obama, a Democrat.  Today, Dr. West is support Jill Stein, Green Party.
Party politics is party politics for a reason. You don’t join the year of demanding loyalty or the right to set policy.  If you don’t agree with the Democratic Party don’t be a member.  Build up the Green, Republican, or whatever fourth party you desire.   I say these words as a former staunch Independent voter.  I would still be an Independent if not for the GOP showing they care nothing for the people.  When GOP went totally for corporations, I could no longer be on the fence. 
The GOP has tried for years to silence Hillary.  They have feared she would enact a true New Deal in the 20th century.  I look forward to seeing her do it in the 21st century.  It is with dismay I watch many repeat lies as truths.  It is with greater dismay I watch these same people display a total lack of understanding of government.  I blame those who do know and understand for leading these people astray. 
Folks don’t get at me.  Get at a Civics class.  Also get at history and stats classes.  Once educated you will understand how you have been played.  I too desire for the system to be different.  I know the difference between change and evolution.

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.
