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. The hierarchy of shade of skin, is influenced by biblical text and colonial rule. Europeans have long associated; pale skin, bread, rice and hair with being; spiritually pure, good and being closer to God.

“Cleanliness is next to godliness” John Wesley: (1778)

The term ‘Mixed-Race‘ is offensive to all human beings. ‘Mixed Race‘ promotes a fascist, neocolonialist ideology; whitewashing imperial history, while providing, ‘White privilege‘ for a minority of individuals, who fit the European prototype of beauty and acceptability. Continue reading

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.

To Weave or not to Weave: That is the question?

Big Brothers Bit On The Side

Big Brothers Bit On The Side

While watching Channel 5’s, ‘Big Brothers Bit On The Side‘ (BBBOTS), on Friday 21st, June 2013. I noticed the banter, between the presenters AJ Odudu and Rylan Clark, turned to the subject of weave. While introducing a link to the adverts, AJ (the black female presenter) informed the audience to, “Hold on to your hats” in anticipation for more of the show, but before AJ could finish her link, Rylan, (ex X-Factor contestant), interrupted AJ, by shouting Hold on to your weave’s, as he grabbed and picked up the tail of AJ’s hair, and repeated himself. You can watch the video footage by clicking here.

Social-Violence: A Part Of Human Nature?

Saatchi & Lawson

Saatchi & Lawson

Has violence become a naturalized element of our primitive past in modern day society. Can only the rich and wealthy afford to get away with murder? The reason I ask this question is because of the hypocritical politically-correct ideology that people should not express physical emotions of anger. There is a thin line between love and hate; and due to the recent emergence of mass digital communications, anger (an emotion which was previously easy to hide) has become one of the most dominant emotions of social media.
