Experiencing the Jamaican Stereotype

As I’ve found myself in an increasing number of social environments over the years, one thing that never goes away is the Jamaican stereotype. I’m not talking about asking where I’m from, we’ve already addressed that in a previous post, but the constant imitation of a Jamaican Caribbean person. This particular stereotype focusses on the […]

My Thoughts on Black History Month

A dear friend (and cousin) messaged me recently to ask if I’d be doing a post on Black History Month, and in all honesty I wasn’t sure what to say. I didn’t plan to write a post, but even just discussing the terminology was interesting enough in itself to not give it a miss. To […]

PHOTO FRIDAY #2: Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens

It’s time for ‘Photo Friday’, where I do my best to bring you one photo that reflects a great personal experience that I’d recommend to all.

In Converstion With…Stacey

Today we try a new format for the blog and speak to Stacey, who wants to share her thoughts on being in a relationship with a mixed raced guy. I’m lucky enough to be that guy, and you can imagine how strange this was effectively interviewing my partner at the table when we’d usually be […]

BIPOC, America’s BAME

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll have seen that I started a poll this afternoon on (what appears to be) a new classification travelling across the Atlantic. The sample size was only small and the poll is still ongoing, so this isn’t scientific by any stretch of the imagination, but just over 70% of […]
