So much hate and vitriol comes at us from the right side of the political spectrum in response to today's current events. The right offers no solutions, just epithets, conspiracy theories, racism, xenophobia, hatred, insults, and abject fear.

I enter the west wing to keep our breakfast date Mother, Father and I have. But, breakfast isn't ready. Instead, I find Mother standing at the door and Father talking to Harrison outside at Harrison's truck. Mother quickly informs me there's been an accident. I take a look out the ...
All ANC big men loooooooooooove Nelson Mandela and worship him as a god above God, right? Right? Apparently not...
I've never wanted to write much if anything about politics, because politics and religion are the two things that still stand in the way of a happy human race. However, sometimes I couldn't help but write about the corruption of South Africa's current ANC government. It just slips o...
I had so many plans for yesterday, but yesterday I fell asleep and slept for the whole day. But I worried not - there's tomorrow to do it, isn't there? And so tomorrow becomes today, and all my plans are lined up and ready to go. The first thing on the agenda is of course fitne...

I am a Black woman of Caribbean descent. I was born in South London and have lived a large part of my life in London, apart from 6 years in W. Germany. Last year I finally put pen to paper to express my feelings about the racism and prejudice that I have experienced, due to the colour...
I caught a bit of the Fox News Propaganda Network the other day, where a parade of white pundits and one Uncle Tom were castigating blacks for rioting in Baltimore. They were spinning one fiction after another, so the record must be set straight.
