Calling Messiah - Democratic Party Paging



An offline conversation with a buddy inspired me to update my blog today.  During the course of the conversation it was mentioned there is no one in the Democratic Party to fix all Trump and GOP are doing.  I quickly asked, why are we looking for one person?  The answer is not one person it is all of us.  We must all work to correct the governing of the GOP and Trump administration.
We must not look for a messiah but look within for the leader.  We must cultivate and elect to local/state offices those who will govern with the public good in mind.  Leaders who will listen to the people whom they have been elected to serve.  We must create plans of governing (see ALEC) as do corporations.  We must also cultivate and elect to Congress those who understand public service.  My members of Congress have forgotten they represent Mississippi.  They think they serve Trump and the GOP. 
The GOP has made no secret of the plans to enrich corporations at the expense of the poor and the working poor.  We don’t have time to search for a messiah.  When I attend marches and rallies I see many who would do well in public office.  They have an understanding of government not just being an activist. 
Stop searching for a messiah to run for office, you run for office.

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 .

The Pure Driven Snow in Mississippi

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.
