ODD and the Black ‘Community’

The other day I received a text message that was a message being shared/forwarded from person to person and it was a warning about a series of upcoming White Supremacist group initiations which would entail the sacrificing of black boys as part of their rituals. The purported sacrificing that was to take place was to be brutal, ruthless and chillingly murderous. The warning admonished black parents to watch over their children in the coming days and not to allow them to travel alone or engage with anyone that they did not know. The warning also exhorted women to be vigilant when out in public to be sure they don't get kidnapped by rabid white supremacists.This viral warning was professed to be written by the NAACP. The NAACP released a statement on July 5, 2020 denying having author...

ESTHER KRAKUE dared to question the aims of BLM and received horrible racist abuse

By Esther Krakue When I first moved to the UK from Ghana with my family in my early teens, the country that welcomed me was one where multiculturalism flourished and neighbours were warm and unassuming. Your achievements were not prefaced by the colour of your skin or your place on the totem pole of identity politics. People from ethnic and racial minorities were not constantly looking over their shoulders and assuming that every social interaction was laced with disdain or racism. It was a Britain where confidence trumped victimhood. But, much to my dismay, the tone has shifted entirely, and worryingly, over the past five years. Now I, a 24-year-old black woman of West African heritage, am expected to be mortally offended if someone dares assume that my dark skin mig...

Hiding Behind The Ancestors

By Candice Smith Adewole FRAMED PHOTOGRAPH OF MAGGIE WALKER AND STAFFS OF IO OF ST LUKE AND ST LUKE PENNY SAVINGS BANK . A few days ago I had a conversation with a woman on Facebook in regards a post that depicted George Floyd standing between Malcolm X and Martin Luther King. I found the post and picture to be absolutely absurd, because in no way was George Floyd a martyr. He did not deserve to die at the hands of police officers, who are sworn to serve and protect, but he is no American hero in my eyes and there are many others who feel the same way. What started off as a sarcastic, yet humorous comment about what happens when you give crayons to the wrong people led to a conversation that further opened my mind to just how deep the victimhood mentality runs, and just how muc...

Identifying the Whole with the Lowest Common Denominator

The recent unrest and racial strife in the United States has provided insight into the world of Black Americans whose lifestyle, mindset and affiliations are not representative of what is popularly presented as 'Black American' or 'Black people'. Now, more than ever, the stark divergences in points of view about what it means to be 'black' in America are not only coming to light but are drawing deeper lines in the sand. One of example is the now trending opinion piece shared yesterday on this website called 'A Tale of Two Black Americas' While this website chooses not to do so, many Black American websites, think pieces and individuals are expressing the rift taking place in their minds between opposing arguments such as being pro or against Black Lives Matter. There are many who ide...

Confused About What You Thought You Knew About Feminism?

A lot of women unfollow me after I post about and against feminism. I have shared many video excerpts and posts about the 1970s era of the NOW movement and the onset of the 2nd wave of feminism which politicized 'the problem with being a woman'. I have detailed at length why I view the original intent of feminism as vastly different from the aims of much of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th waves of feminism as we know them today. While I won't go into the definitions of feminism here in this blog, I will discuss how the ideology is effecting people's mindset. I view the bait and switch use of the term 'feminism' as being very much like the same tactic used by Black Lives Matter; that originally protested against state-sponsored police brutality. Now, per their own 'About' page's manifesto, their...

Subsidizing Lifestyle Decisions

I am going to be honest because it is my blog and it is a place where I can share my thoughts, despite the fact that the 'thought police' is scouring the internet for something to be angry about. Yes, social safety nets, in my opinion, are humane and necessary. When families or individuals, unexpectedly run into financially hard times due to job loss, a long term illness, etc, such social safety nets are indeed humane and necessary. However, when its presence becomes a 'back up plan' for life decisions, it leads to decisions that might not have otherwise been made. Because I would rather not deep dive into the panicked excuses for why people make the decisions they make, I'd like to share my thoughts on excuses. The situation for a large swath of the 'black collective' has ...
