A few weeks ago I was having a chat with my 16 year old cousin about school. We were talking about his gym activities when he mentioned to me that he was one of two black kids in his class. No biggie there. Then he added that when they picked teams, the gym teacher would […]Read More Is It A Black Thing?
I just found this draft I made over 4 years ago and decided to post it. A few weeks ago, while walking to my car downtown, I happened to be walking behind a couple of ‘well-dressed’ women out for a night of partying. As they walked, their hands were busy trying to keep their much-too-short […]Read More Frank but Funny Friday: Are You Dressing Inappropriately?
I cannot sit idly by in Atlanta and not be concerned about what happens in Birmingham. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. – MLK Since the murder of George Floyd, […]Read More Thank You, White People
Coronavirus is bad! let’s get that straight. I know it and you know it. Regardless of of how and where it originated, people’s lives have been negatively impacted. For those directly affected, be it, whether losing a loved one, loss of employment or whatever, I hold you in my thoughts. I was told repeatedly that […]Read More Covid-19: The Beginning Of Life As We Never Knew It
This week’s news was dominated by the Black Face Scandal.

On one occasion, he was attending an Arabian nights themed costume party, hence the brown face. Another had him with […]Read More Black Face? No, It’s Just Dirt But I Apologize
Up until a couple of months ago, the world was on the brink of a cataclysmic war, with North Korea holding regular nuclear tests and threatening to annihilate the US and South Korea. It seemed like only a matter of time before it escalated to a point of no return. Then the Winter Olympics happened. […]Read More How The Winter Olympics Brings The World Together
I am prepared to receive some backlash for this but it is just MY TAKE. Last Wednesday, our Senate passed a bill that would see the line in the national anthem changed from “in all thy sons command” to “in all of us command.” Now please don’t get me wrong, I am all for inclusivity […]Read More Oh No Canada!
I have been closely following a bizarre case in St. Vincent and The Grenadines where a young aspiring/former model was accused of calling a government minister’s wife the B word. ‘So what?’ I can hear you say. Well it turns out that on this small island, you don’t use the B word without dire consequences. […]Read More In St. Vincent, The B**ch Is Bad!

There’s a saying, ‘If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quack likes a duck, then it’s probably is a duck.’ I live by that mantra, kinda. So when I saw the yahoo news about a baby born in British Columbia that was not assigned a sex at the parents’ wishes, I […]Read More It’s A Boy! It’s A Girl! It’s…It’s…What Is It?
Yesterday I watched the news about a city man who had his personalized Star Trek-themed licence plate recalled because ‘Manitoba Public Insurance received a complaint.’ Yes, all it takes is one solitary complaint. Even over a 2-year old licence plate that is obviously, in a blatant way, not intended to be offensive in the least. […]Read More Cutting Off The Nose To Spite The Face?
