Today Georgia is exploring things modern during her haiga month. I immediately thought of Flint and the Navajo fiasco. Thanks, Georgia.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Folks make fun of filmmaker Michael Moore, a native of Flint, Michigan as some kind of liberal, hypocritical malcontent, pointing out the sins of this country, even “bashing” the car industry which was his family’s bread and butter for decades. GM and Detroit benefitted from the black migration of the 20’s-40’s as southern black folks escaped the terrorism of Jim Crow, the KKK, etc. The point of this little history lesson is that the capitalistic greed built on the backs of black workers in Flint, in Detroit, is alive and well. It began costing white workers their jobs into the 70’sand 80’s as the white guys at the top used the workers as some kind of toilet paper. Not pretty. Not pretty at all!!

  2. No one, melanated or not, should be expected to bathe in, much less drink, toxic water. There were Navajo people who killed themselves after the Gold King incident. My heart sank then, and does so now, at the callousness towards those who are made to suffer.
