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 .

Mothafucka Please...get up and leave

Here is a quick little ditty that came to mind over the weekend.  It was inspired by some muthas in the USA playing games with the lives of me and mine.

Muthafucka please get up and leave.

Suppression Games - Mississippi

I am writing today about my recent adventure in voter registration.  I've had some recently developments in my life that necessitated a change of address.  Change of address, same US Congressional district, meant updating my voter registration.  During the process I was reminded of the suppression games of Mississippi in voting.  Many automatically think Voter ID when I write, suppression games, in the South ID is the least of the ways of suppressing the vote. 

My secretary of state, Delbert Hosemann, touts the ease of voter registration in Mississippi.  His favorite is  using the online method, http://www.sos.ms.gov/Vote/Pages/default.aspx.  I used this site, waited 7 days, and then call my new county to confirm.  Shocker of all shocks, I am not on the rolls.  We have less than 3M people in Mississippi and only 1.8M are registered to vote, my desktop can process those numbers.

All things being me,  I confirmed with a voice at the Clerk's office the times of operation.  I sta…

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.
