When Will White People Stop Negating Our Pain

Most people explain this incorrectly as far as I’m concerned. It’s not that black lives have more sorrow.Because everyone experiences emotions by the things that have shaped their lives, the depth of sorrow that I feel about racism may be the same depth of sorrow that a rich kid of Beverly Hills feels about losing…

Ignorance

Okay, so I need to address the elephant in the room. On my personal blog and on my social media, I’ve been sharing the hell out of posts calling for social equality for people of colour, and calling out those that dare to tell me racism doesn’t exist and even more infuriating, that institutional racism…

Dear White People

I am not your chocolate anything. Period. Just because we are friends, doesn’t mean you can say, sing or write the word ‘nigga’ in any context ‘Wog’ anything makes me want to slap you. You will never understand the struggles of growing up black, even if we grew up in the same neighborhood, went to…

The Lifelong Casting

For those of you that don’t know, I’m Wiccan, and I’m working on a spell that will take 30 years to complete. The thing is with spell crafting is that the more time and effort you put into a spell the stronger it becomes, so I’m using the phases of the moon and the positions…

Piling on pounds with age, and the ridiculous expense of eating healthily

Here’s the rub. I’ve always had a high metabolism, so throughout my youth I always stayed fairly thin, despite me having a relatively sweet tooth. I’d take drugs all weekend and then devour packs of biscuits, chocolate bars and various other junk during the week while eating one long continuous meal all day. Then shortly…

Mud is thicker than Blood

There’s been a fair few times over that last couple of weeks that the conversation naturally drifts towards my family life. And having a somewhat spotty relationship with my mother and having left home at a very young age, I’m understandably hesitant to talk about it. Which of course leads to prying, which leads to…

Keyboard Politicians

I’ve seen a lot of post on social media like ‘Why is everybody suddenly a politician.’ Let me tell you why this is dumb as fuck. Politics affects every person in every household, so people interested and therefore engaging in the conversation about politics should be applauded. When you engage is something, you form an…

Excerpt of my book extended

Prologue   Fire rose in large plumes and blood flowed as freely as the black and grey smoke. The village was destroyed. I was surrounded by people, but felt more alone than I had in my life. He was gone. He was dead. The ground continued to shake. I continued to cry.   1  …

Shiroi Tsuki

The moon was supposed to be especially bright that night, so during my usual throws of insomnia I threw open my balcony doors and peered expectantly at the sky, but a thick layer of red smog obscured my view so resigned I resumed what felt like an endless period of tossing and turning. Monday morning…

Excerpt from my book.

We were completely blind to it, those of us affected had an inclining of what was going on but for the most part, the United Kingdom chose ignorance over enlightenment. The tide changed when private emails between the key players in parliament were leaked on the Internet, revealing that the cuts to allowances of the…

Dear Helen Hayes (Labour MP)

Dear Helen Hayes, I’m writing this letter because I genuinely fear for my freedom, rights and financial well-being under this Government. I’m not alone in feeling like this, people from my community and a lot of the other friends I’ve amassed along my short time living in this world. I am a twenty-five-year-old gay male living in…
