Why the term “Mixed-Race” is Racist!

The next time somebody uses the term ‘Mixed-Race’ to describe themselves or other individuals I challenge you to ask question “What race other than human are you talking about?“. Race was socially constructed by early Europeans to devalue and elevate human beings based upon physical attributes, national heritage and religious values.

Officially there is only one human race! The colour or hue of ones skin, does not change the race, of that particular human.

Henson acting credentials were being derailed by mainstream Hollywood cameos from daughter of Bruce Willis, Demi Moore and son of Tom Hanks. After Empire’s network debut on British television the show lost its authenticity and crossed-over into Jerry Springer world with cliche & tacky soap-opera story-lines.

The London Motor & Tech Show 2019

On Saturday 18th May I attended ‘The London Motor & Tech Show 2019’ at the London Excel Centre in East London. I enjoyed this day trip, it was a chance to experience being up close and personal with some of the latest automobiles on the market. The technology of some the car accessories was state of the art.

Upon arrival I could sense the excitement in the exhibition halls. This was a family event ideal for people who enjoy photography and the odd freebie. The highlight of the exhibition was the indoor race track which allowed patrons to sit in the passenger seat with a professional stunt driver.
