30 days RAW for Leukaemia Research! My story...

Posted on May 4, 2009 at 1:53pm 0 Comments

I've been reading a lot about raw food recently, and wanted to see whether I could do it. Here were some of my fears:



Initially I was concerned that I would be consigned to a life of dull, boring watery looking salads, or that I would have to act in a certain way to fit in with the raw food community. I was also aware of not wanting to make myself 'too different' in case I became alienated from my friends and ended up alone. I saw so many websites of people preaching and seeming a… Continue

Barack and Curtis: a sizzling critique of black masculinity in the media

Posted on December 4, 2008 at 9:02pm 2 Comments

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=H5YoS3bqk5g



Since relatively few black men end up as gangsters, rappers or presidents, the notion that black western masculinity travels on a linear progression between Barack Obama and 50 Cent is deeply problematic. Between rap and the Oval office there is a world of popular black male figures inhabited by the likes of Chris Rock, Lewis Hamilton, Denzel Washington and Dave Chappelle – to name just a few.



Fortunately this short film soon moves… Continue

True, they are afraid to actually go out in the real world beyond school. True, I think there are too many black people thinking they can make it on sport scholarships and being video girls.

I was thinking about doing vocational anyway, I figure if I am going to school might as well focus my study. I have a huge problem with math and science, it's like torture.

Indeed! Nice to meet you :)

Yeah, I am scared of fascists. On one hand they make me very angry but on the other hand I don't wanna get beat up.

Yeah, education makes sense but only to those who actually know what they are doing. I feel sad when I see people who have like 8 college degrees and don't know what to do with themselves.

Thanks for the comment. :] Yeah school is pretty dull right now, but I still take college credit classes because I know that I can do it, it's just that sometimes I feel a little run down ya know? There are some universities that are strictly portfolio based, and schools frequently visit my high school and give free portfolio reviews, sometimes they give Seniors scholarships.

P.S. Moving to Germany would be amazing.
