MISSISSIPPI
The epicenter of Americas legacy of pain

The time has come for all good citizens of the State of Mississippi to take a stand and do what is right. The Deep South, the region, far exceeds demonstrative acts of intolerance on its citizens than all other regions combined, in the United States of America. Mississippis Delta, where cotton was king, is the epicenter of that pain. Here is where we find the Blues People.

The Blues People, particularly those in Mississippi, have endured suffering from the moment they were chained and captured in their native land and held in dungeons, in unimaginable conditions, for months and years, before departing on a voyage that would alter their future forever. It was on those voyages that they became Blues People looking for an escape to freedomsome through the salty waters of the Atlantic Ocean, others through bloody revolt and still others through the power of willwilling death into their own captive bodies, so their spirits could soar and return to the place where somebody was singing their name in a song, in a blues songtill it was heard in the sun-soaked cotton fields of the Mississippi Delta!
Oh my Lord, oh my Lord what shall I do, what shall I do?

The beneficiaries of the legacy of pain i.e., Mississippi and the United States of America must do what is true, just and rightthey shall apologize, if only for the following:

For the over five hundred documented lynching deaths of African American (Black) people that make Mississippi the most egregious of all offenders in the United States of America.
For all those years of torment and torture in the cotton fields of the Mississippi Delta, not to mention the legal disregard of the pain suffered by people in the United States of America.
For not allowing any African American (Black) people onto the rescue canoes, during the 1927 flood, and for reverting back to a slave-master mindset, when presented with a clear opportunity to respect the dignity and life of all flood victims, who were rightful citizens of good standing in the United States of America.
For the death of Emmitt Till, which launched the Human/Civil Rights Movement, throughout the United States of America.
For not ratifying the Anti-Slavery bill until 1985, making Mississippi the last state in the United States of America to legally acknowledge the system of slavery was over.
For the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in the United States of America.
For consistently having the worst statistics regarding health and education; and, for putting young children off school buses (along roadsides) and out of school houses (in the middle of a school day) in 2008, who were proudly acknowledging the historic accomplishments of President-elect Barack Obama in the United States of America.

Can we humane and good citizens of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA remain silent and inactive when such things are continuously being done in our name? It is our duty to humanityis Mississippi less binding than those in other places? Lawmakers know it is a well-established principle that every wrong has a remedy. Herein rests our Nations respect for law.

What shall we do?

Mississippis therapy and racial healing begins like any otherwith an apologyand ends with you. Take personal responsibility for the process of learning the true and persistent pain of Blues People; and, the realization for potential greatness that awaits us
