I’m not racist but… #14

You have to admit that Meghan Markle is to blame for Jamaica wanting independence‚Ķthere can't be any other reason for it. Whilst we are at it, she's also to blame for Harry leaving the not-at-all toxic Royal Family & British media machine, William following in Charle's footsteps and cheating on Katherine, the Queen falling ill...

Decisions Decisions Decisions!

Each day we are confronted with countless things that require our attention and that we have to make a decision on. To be honest, now as an adult I feel cheated at the sheer amount of opinions I'm meant to have about everything! No; I honestly don't care about the plethora of white available for...

What does being an adult mean? Fundamentally it is a person who is fully developed both mentally and physically. Who has the capacity to understand cause and effect, consequences and can make rational decisions based on the information at hand, or it is for me. Being an adult provides the capacity to be responsible and... Continue Reading →

As soon as Halloween was over, the Christmas adverts started in the UK. This is expected. My friend who works in marketing for a big brand hates Christmas by June (May tbh) as they have had to spend their time figuring out the best impact. Each advert is carefully considered and planned. It's tested on... Continue Reading →

BHM UK! I’m not racist but… #10

Halfway through Black History Month UK and I can admit it's been informative, to say the least! It has brought out many racists who seem to have Twitter bot accounts simply to combat the narrative of a black history month needed, who complain about the focus on the negative slave trade but who also don't...

You're attractive; for a black person! I'm a fan of some reality TV, they are a guilty pleasure as I watch in awe at the people brave enough to go on there. It's a wonderful distraction to watch beautiful and/or talented people compete in strange settings, in made-up situations created solely for entertainment. You fall... Continue Reading →

I’m not racist but… #8

I've been so lazy with my hair over the past couple of years because I've not had reason to maintain a particular look. All of my preening has taken a nose dive to the point that I fear I may have forgotten how to put on makeup, walk in heels and do other ladylike activities.... Continue Reading →

I’m not racist but… #7

Having a voice to be seen to be considered human. Language and Visibility make a difference to people. When people become demystified, their presence within society becomes normalised and so people who had no interaction with them before, start to understand them, and as such accept them within society. This is a good thing as... Continue Reading →

Who is Emily? I’m not racist but… #6

Isn't reading amazing! It's a great escapism. Growing up, nearly all of the books I read, the lead was nearly always a white CIS character. Black characters were reserved for those from the USA. This taught me that the world saw black people either as impoverished Africans or from the USA. That was my main... Continue Reading →

I’m not racist but… #5

When I first started to write and self publish I did so under different pen names. How many nom-du-plumes do I have? The answer is two. I have two pen names that I've used over the years. How is this relevant to racism you may be wondering, and even if you're not I shall answer.... Continue Reading →
