Out of all the big cities in Europe, why did you pick London over Rome,Berlin,Madrid or Paris? Or better yet out why London over other cities in the world like New York?
That’s simple: I speak English, it’s not too far from home, I really like the multicultural & metropolitan vibe of London and I have family here. Plus, from a economic point of view, they are doing better than most European cities. So, finding a job and settling here would be a bit easier, compared to the other big cities.
“Whites who are sincere don’t accomplish anything by joining Negro organizations and making them integrated. Whites who are sincere should organize among themselves and figure out some strategy to break down prejudice that exists in white communities. This is where they can function more intelligently and more effectively, in the white community itself, and this has never been done.”—Malcolm X, 1965
After you seen hidden colors 1 & 2. Can you share your experience or what you learned from the movies here?
I just saw Hidden Colors 1 and it was very interesting. They talked about the African kingdoms, the big influence people of African descent had in Asia, Europe and the Americas, and their influence on science, architecture, art, mathematics, music and religion. But also discussed current problems and put them in historical context.
I learned a lot by watching the documentary, like how the American Civil War was purely based on capitalism and not whether white Americans were against enslaving black people or not. And how it were actually black people (moors) who helped Columbus “discover” America, as African people were travelling to the Americas for decades. These are just two examples, but I really learned a lot more and would advise everyone to watch Hidden Colors.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find Hidden Colors 2 online. So if someone knows where I can find the full documentary, please let me know.
What kind of music do you like? Favorites artists?
I like a wide range of music and artists: (neo)soul, R&B, rap, jazz and even some poprock artists. A couple of my favorite artists are: John Legend, A Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, D’Angelo, Maxwell, Beyoncé, Common, Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill.
In your opinion, am I racist for being against interracial marriage and relationships? I'm African by the way.
It doesn’t matter if you are African or not. If you disapprove of a relationship only based on the fact that it’s interracial, that’s racist.
I do understand that there are some cases where black guys decide to only date white or mixed girls, because they’re “prettier” than black girls and they think that their kids will be “good looking”. Or white people who see it as some kind of fetish to date people of color. But those people are just plain stupid.
Any relationship, interracial or not, should be based on love :)
I was just tired of relaxing and straightening my hair. I just spend too much time doing my hair and I was always worrying about it. In addition, I learned more about the variety of natural hair styles and I always wanted to know if I could rock the butch cut haha.
I have to admit, it wasn’t an impulsive decision. First, I actually started the “transition phase”, but that soon didn’t look good so I relaxed it again. After that I decided that cutting it all off was the best and easiest way for me to go natural.
