Like other Red State governors, Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves saddled his state with third-world conditions he caused with failed right-wing policies.
Mississippi is conservatism instantiated.
Do you want to see the results of Conservative governance? Mississippi displays it on steroids. So how does that affect the citizens of Jackson, Mississippi? They end up waiting on poorly distributed clean water by the state, or they must buy their own bottled water at an extreme cost to them.
We justifiable send money overseas to countries that are experiencing catastrophes, famines, and more. But, somehow, we are unable to see that same suffering within our own communities. While visibly, it seems like this occurs solely in communities of color, one should drive through many parts of Appalachia to see wretched living conditions for many of our citizens.
Our economic system is criminal. And it is aided by derelict media. If we ever linked the environmental neglect, poisoning, and destruction in Flint, Michigan, Jackson, Mississippi, poisoned creeks and air from forms of mining in Appalachia, it would be clear that the corporations are harming the many irrespective of hue for the benefit of a parasitic few.
I use a phrase on my Politics Done Right program often. We will win when we unite the ghettos, the barrios, and Appalachia. The statement relies on stereotypes, but the truth in it is unavoidable.
