Police abusing their power and killing unarmed people is a terrible thing the people in the US have to deal with all too often. I’m not sure why it’s become a UK issue because it’s not a UK problem. Increased awareness about the UK police deaths over the years may seem to have fallen on deaf ears with a majority of the cases determined justified in the eyes of the law. There has certainly been less incidents of seemingly unlawful killings by the police over the last few years, showing there has been some change, and race definitely hasn’t been a factor because some of the most questionable situations have involved white victims. Unarmed Sean Fitzgerald being shot in the back in January of 2019, caught fleeing the scene was particularly disturbing, but generally the lack of information along with minimal journalistic investigation have made it difficult to get a clear understanding of what is going on. Weapons (guns, knives, axes), violence and mental health have been significant factors in these UK police related deaths, the officers have had to make quick decisions in high pressured situations resulting in fatalities and often saving another life.Continue reading Police Brutality in the uk
After doing a little digging I’m happy to see that Candace Owens is still trying to empower people, speak truth and change minds. I have listened to a lot of her anti-democratic stance and as a black woman in America spouting the kind of truths she does, she’s no only brave but has some very good points to make.

Language is very important when considering the appropriate feeling about the history of black slavery from the perspective of a black person, because as a black man there is definitely strong feelings when the topic of slavery is brought up. For clear context in this particular article, when I refer to slavery, I am specifically talking about the transatlantic slave trade which started in the 16th Century. Continue reading Should I feel proud about slavery?
Mohammed “Mo” Ibrahim is a Sudanese-British billionaire businessman who founded Celtel, a telecommunications company which had over 24 million mobile phone subscribers in 14 African countries. He sold the company for $3.4 billion and set up the Mo Ibrahim foundation to encourage better governance of Africa. What I love about the video is the confidence and surety he speaks with about current African leaders. Continue reading Mohammed Ibrahim – Black Billionaire speaks raw truth to old African leaders
The most common age for young girls to start wearing make up in this country is 11yrs old. It seems that society these days has an unhealthy obsession with beauty and appearance. We are bombarded on a daily basis by airbrushed images of models on the TV, radio, magazines & newspapers so I can understand why this creates a warped perception of beauty in many people’s minds. Children exposed to this pick up the insecure vibration levels and jump on the slap stick band wagon to clown looking town. Now there’s nothing wrong with a little make up, but imagine a world where looking like Katie Price isn’t what young girls aspire to. Imagine picking up a magazine and seeing Kelly Brook embracing the beauty of her human flaws.
An African life seems to have much less value than any other.
Popular press has portrayed the Rwandan Genocide as a tribal war between ethnic groups. Scholarly research has rejected this view, (Des Forges; 1999, Uvin; 1998, Prunier; 1995).
Krain (1997) found that ethnic fractionalisation is uncorrelated with the onset of genocide or political mass murder.
It is known now that there a few vital factors that heavily influence the chance of genocide in conflict ridden countries;
Rwanda Genocide Remembered: Small Arms Involvement
The 7th of April 2014 was the day when France refused to take part in the commemorations ceremony for the Rwandan Genocide. Rwanda was a former French colony. Back in the colonial days, the Germans, Belgians and French enslaved the Rwandan people and set up international corporations, milking the country of its raw materials and natural wealth, they also had a large part to play in the genocide that followed.
Dear Arsenal Football Club,
My name is Billy Costigan and I am a fake football supporter.
The fake football team I support is Arsenal, and I have also used Real Madrid and Aston Villa in th past too.
I have been fake supporting Arsenal for the past 10 years and this is my official resignation.
Now don’t get me wrong, I do love the way you play the game. I love the way you kick the ball, with such passion, such power, such promise and pizazz.
