Mississippi Values

March 11, 2010

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.

    I was ready to click off this site when I saw the picture you opened the post with. Luckily, my eye caught the first couple of sentences, so I read on.
    I couldn’t have said it any better than you. Tremendous post, but that image, for me at least, is a little too much. Not a criticism, just my perspective.

      I was ready to put the real photos of lynchings throughout this post, but I hoped a few folks might read a bit further…and maybe, just maybe, see that our past haunts us to this day.

      I don’t see much of a difference between our drones and Mississippi trees. I don’t see much of a difference between torturing POW’s of the never ending wars and those same Mississippi trees.

      Thanks for your comment noh8
      I appreciate it.

    We’re not really about freedom in the USA- it’s just the way we try to justify our foreign policy.

      If Americans truly wanted to change…an honest look at our foreign policy would be a great way to open a few eyes. If Americans really wanted change…they’d wake up one fine day, here in the sunny morning freedom of the Homeland, and it would hit them…we do not live in a Homeland because of the brown skinned humans who live in far away places.

      The rot of pretend freedom is all around us.

      Just ask my friends at the Seattle Fusion Center, staffed by Boeing, the FBI etc. etc. etc.

      Thanks Alex.
