Mississippi values consist of loving our children and our neighbor, because it’s the right thing to do.
Mississippi values, morals and religion, also teaches us that gay people are almost as bad, as the brown people who live in the Middle East, who are themselves, almost as bad as the black humans that were lynched in Mississippi.
Mississippi holds the American record for the number of lynchings “known” to have occurred there from 1882 to 1968.
Not all lynchings in America were because the lynched were black. Whites were hung, out west…because maybe they stole a cow, or pissed off the wrong politician. Indians were hung because, I think you know why. Italians were hung in some places, because they were dirty “immigrants” who were here in America, taking our jobs and women. Some of the lynched even held “union sympathy.”
You can almost hear the various hate groups of the Homeland, not getting it.
We do not openly lynch so much anymore. We have the private/public prison industry, to lock away and or kill a disproportionate amount of black or brown humans. We have our K Street Congress, who enjoy voting for more corporate war for profit and employment, once said K Street Congresshuman’s retire.
After all, there are no profits to be made for Insitu, Boeing or GE, by not killing the brown humans in the Middle East. There are no jobs for many American humans of color, nor their uneducated white counterparts. The army has plenty of jobs. Health care is readily available…in the Army. Just don’t come home damaged.
Bailouts for billionaires, trillions for war, billions for Blackwater, billions for Halliburton and death or bankruptcy, for those who disagree…or those who are different.
Ghosts of strange fruit still hang from some of our trees. Now that fruit is hanging from pomegranate trees in Afghanistan and Pakistan, as well as the date palms of Iraq.
These my fellow Homelandian’s, these are our Mississippi values. This is what we come from. Now our children come from it too.
