All skinfolk ain’t kinfolk

Am I the only one that gets goosebumps when they hear this phrase? It’s a statement so glaringly truthful that it hurts to even hear it. Maybe hurt isn’t the right word but how else should we feel when people who are “supposed” to have our backs turn around and stick a knife in it? Resentment comes to mind. This statement is one which puts … Continue reading All skinfolk ain’t kinfolk

Acting white or acting right?

Yes, you read the title of this post correctly. Those of us (People of Color) who do not exhibit the stereotypical characteristics of our race and culture are accused of acting white. What does that even mean? How does being yourself mean that you’re suddenly trans-racial? Most say this jokingly, but there’s a little bit of truth behind every joke. It’s a way of telling … Continue reading Acting white or acting right?

This generation…smh

A few weeks ago I was at work and heard some of the older staff members talking about our generation. I figured they were referring to millennials when Logan Paul’s name was brought up. Who is Logan Paul? His relevancy to this topic is only as a horrid example of what millennials have to offer. Although, he doesn’t look that bad in comparison to Dylann … Continue reading This generation…smh

Yes, us young‘uns get tired too

“I hate when people tell me I can’t be tired because I’m young, like I go to school full time, work part time, I am mentally ill and I get frequent migraines. I am tired, don’t tell me I’m not” – Anonymous whisper user If you’re anywhere 30 and under I’m sure you’ve probably heard something like this from some bitter older folks who fail … Continue reading Yes, us young‘uns get tired too

Two messages are better than one

“Just because you can see the candle in someone, doesn’t mean that you’re meant to light it” This morning I was watching an interview by the Breakfast Club. Charlemagne Tha God, DJ Envy and Angela Yee were interviewing Amanda Seales. Until this interview I didn’t know much about her other than her accusation against Russel Simmons. About a month ago, amid the rape accusations, she … Continue reading Two messages are better than one

Losing Control

By the title of this post you’d probably think that I was going to start talking about something deep and emotional and blah blah.  Nope, I just have a bone to pick with people on the internet. Those who literally have no self control. If that’s you then yes I’m talking about you. Do you have to turn all of your thoughts on a particular … Continue reading Losing Control

Being Honest

4/3/2017 – 9:30 AM   So, I just finished watching the first video posted by FouseyTube, the YouTuber in four months. Where has he been? What has he been doing? All of that doesn’t matter. That’s because the “why” was the focal point of the video. Why did he leave his fans, his channels, management companies, his profession? He has his reasons. One thing I … Continue reading Being Honest

Home is where the heart is…

December 20th, 2016 signalled six long years since I immigrated to Canada. The day passed by without me even remembering. Six years ago, on that day, my life changed forever. Being a fourteen year old who had already formed a close bond with my group of friends and settled into high school, it was difficult to leave the place I called home. I remember being … Continue reading Home is where the heart is…

Worth it or Worthless?

  Actions Speak Louder than Words.   It has taken me some time to realize that in order to know if someone truly loves you, you need to evaluate their actions. A man or woman will show you how they feel about you even if they find it difficult to voice their feelings. People take for granted what they have and forget to show their … Continue reading Worth it or Worthless?
