It is indeed a sad day. It is with no happy announcement that anyone can talk about this whole BREXIT mess. War is coming, if not already on our doorsteps. The Pound is already sliding, which may eventually lead to unrest within Britain, its former colonies that still depend on it (Jamaica included) and the […]Read More Of BREXIT and Of War and all these things
I’m just another angry black man. Or that’s what Piers Morgan would want me or any other person of colour to think if I dare challenge him. According to an article published April 25, 2016 by MailOnline, Mr. Morgan wrote re Beyoncé most recent visual album, LEMONADE, he prefers the old Beyoncé, “the less inflammatory, agitating […]Read More How Dare You, Piers Morgan?!
Sorry You’re Not Black Enough Time and time again I see posts all over social media about black vs whites, light skinned vs dark skinned, among a slew of other issues surrounding race. However, black people don’t think they can be racist towards their own kind and in doing so, a term such as colorism […]Read More Sorry You’re Not Black Enough
This entry may take you for a loop because it took me a while to gather my thoughts so I could speak with as much clarity as I possibly can. So buckle up as you’re in for a treat.

It wasn’t until a friend of mine shared a link with me that the urge to write resurfaced. For most people within Jamaica, and for Jamaican expats, who keep abreast […]Read More Being Jamaican: A Technicality
On February 13, 2014, I attended a show put on by the Quilt Performing Arts Company held at The Philip Sherlock Centre, UWI Mona. This show was like, yet unlike any other that the group has put on.

Hi there readers, I’m once again going to use Beyoncé’s self-titled album as the pivot for this entry. Specifically looking at “Flawless” (feat. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie). As a matter of fact, Beyoncé’s part in the song will hardly be looked at as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s verse has been stirring up a lot of thoughts in my head. I hope you’re ready, cuz I […]Read More And What Do WE Teach OUR Boys?
Hi my readers, I want to apologize for being absent these past couple of months with my blogs. Too much was happening in my personal and professional life, that I couldn’t find the time to sit around the computer and put my thoughts together. However, I have decided that instead of making a post on every episode […]Read More Pretty Hurts…Right?
Often times, we as humans, because of our imperfect state of existence, tend to try our best to stage our lives for public approval.
