The Pure Driven Snow in Mississippi

Well, it seems I have hurt someone’s feelings.  My governor has blocked me on Twitter.  He said something about HB1425 and I did a quote of it.  My quote was something about one should check whatever my governor promotes. 

I am thinking really?  He is really mad because I stated something about legislation?  Then I remembered I pasted his reaction to Jeff Sessions’ confirmation for AG every opportunity I could find to do so. 

I mean seriously he is my governor and he is saying these things.  Also Mississippi has not exactly been making the best deals lately so yes I question legislation when he is pushing it.  We should always question legislation.  I use to skim the bills. I had no idea this man who likes to pose with guns and law enforcement was so sensitive.  He is the last I would think would be a snowflake.  

 Perhaps it is my asking, what my local media should be doing, if he is of any relations to the woman who claimed Emmett Till whistled at her, which just finally pissed him off.  It could be he worships Donald J. Trump.  Hint the J. isn’t for the Jesus you are thinking.    

Alas what is a constituent to do when her governor refuses to be open and transparent about his governing? She should contact his office to confirm an appointment to discuss this matter given she is a citizen of the state.

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.
