Riddle Me This : DNC Chair

Speaking  with  a friend  offline  a question  came to mind while is Keith  Ellison raising  money  for  his DNC Chair  run?  We've  yet to understand  his willingness  to  step down from his seat in the House  to be chair. However, we are  most confused  in regards to  his need for cash.  

The DNC  Chair's race is not a 50 state campaign. Only members  of the DNC  will vote.  The DNC chair  would  need to be known  to the voting  members .  There is no need for any  advertising.  Why does he need money? 

To my knowledge, none of the  others  running  for chair are asking  for  money.  Something  is wrong  with  Ellison ' s run for chair.

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.
