Moral Panic

Have you ever read an article you instantly knew was suspect? I did, when I learned that Jussie Smollett had been attacked by two Trump supporters who kicked him about and tied a noose around his neck in an alleged racist homophobic attack. I read the article in the Daily Mail and remember thinking, "Hmm, …

Academic Spirit

So, I'm doing a Sociology degree... I'm loving it. The fact that I am now over 40 means that I have a good five decades to look over when considering the way that society is constructed and the way in which people adhere to rules and dictates that are maintained only by the continued belief …

Own It!

I've noticed that people always seem to be quick to deny they are "racist". I find it quite amusing when people emphatically insist that they are not. My quest is to understand why people don't own it. I personally have more respect for people who do! Seriously, tell me you are racist and then I …

We before I

There is more to the I. The I stands alone. As One, it is very singular but we are not single. We are not a "1" and until we understand this we will not WIN. I has not, and is not won; therefore, I will never win. There is no I. We carry the DNA …

Folk Devils

American's do make me laugh! From the days when the late great Aaliyah was singing about age being 'nutt'n but a number', we've been knowing that Robert Kelly had a thang fi di pickni dem.... in 2019 it's a travesty... It's common knowledge, and its become an acceptable norm to the point where other 'artiste's' …

Sorry For Your Loss

I am both intrigued and irritated by this very interesting program starring Elizabeth Olsen. There seems to be nothing but praise for the way that this TV series is documenting the grief caused by the sudden death of Leigh Shaw's husband. The program is very much about her and her navigation through this process which …

Deep

Some of us have deep seated ancestral scars that are to be healed in this lifetime.¬†Until the work is done, we can not know ourselves, and no one can truly know us.¬† But we will fit in with the socially accepted norms, we will ensure others stick to the norms too... Our children, friends, siblings, …

Looking Back

Most recently I have become more and more aware of the encouragement we get from society to look back in order to move forward. More and more I'm thinking that this is by design a huge mistake on our parts. Sure, I can see where everyone is coming from. In order to avoid the mistakes …
