Red Pill Activation

Every so often I throw a red pill into a TL to see the bots and the operatives at work.  In all of the discussion about collusion with Russia during the 2016 elections, Bernie has been remarkably quiet.  He will say something when pressed but overall he isn’t concerned about the matter.  Why? Collusion with a nation against whom we have sanctions is a very treasonous matter.
I am not saying Bernie directly colluded with Russia for the failure of our democracy in the USA.  I am saying there were some running his campaign who had ties to Russia.  I do know if I tweet a few keys words to legitimate people regarding Bernie, I get foreign bots in my DMs. 
I am not saying all Bernie Bros are bots.  I’ve met them offline.  They sincerely believe a White man is the solution for all of the ills of the USA.  Maybe they are correct, only the creators can correct what they have done.  However, I continue to see White men make people of color, especially Black people, and women afterthoughts.   What type of fool would I be if I trusted my welfare to a White man? 
My discussion with a White male about Bernie making HBCUs an afterthought, ended with the White male saying “so i really don't care if you think….”  I knew this White male, much as Bernie and the other bros, didn’t care what I think.  In his words one doesn’t need to be Black or female to support women or people of color.  He is correct, however; being male and White seems to hindering hearing women and PoC when they speak.  I could be wrong but as a Black lesbian it is my interpretation of decades of conversations with White males and males.
Post-election some are slowly waking to understand why Black women knew from Jump Street what time it was.  Black men still locked into the same “I am man and I must lead the women and children” dreamland as is Bernie are still sleeping.  The Women’s’ March   was vital for it said, “Naw Bro being male isn’t nor has it been for centuries the only qualification for leading.” Yet, our media and elected officials continue to push to young people of color and to White women the White male savior narrative.  Meanwhile, Black women singing “Hell 2 Da NawNawNaw”.

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.
