Self Isolation Thoughts

So this year has already been a pretty wild one, and that's me putting everything pretty lightly. I'm not a medical expert and as of a few days ago I've stopped being as up to date on the whole COVID-19 issue, as the moment it hit the UK it impacted my mental health in way … Continue reading Self Isolation Thoughts

Sometimes You Have To Accept You’re Surrounded By Racists #GeneralElection (347/365)

Like many I woke up today gutted with the news that not only did the Conservatives win, but they won by a landslide. Many areas like Wales, Stoke and up North switched to voting Tory and not only was it shocking but it forced a lot of us to accept that the silent majority hold … Continue reading Sometimes You Have To Accept You’re Surrounded By Racists #GeneralElection (347/365)

Shamima Begum/ISIS Are Western Government Pawns (334/365)

This theory of mine started when Shamima Begum kept flooding our social media whenever public opinion on Brexit was low, it got to the point that I actively paid attention to whenever she was mentioned and I'm honestly surprised more people haven't mentioned this... but them most people honestly believe that 'muslim terrorists' are truly … Continue reading Shamima Begum/ISIS Are Western Government Pawns (334/365)

Weird Ways We White Ourselves Up In Order To Assimilate (299/365)

If you haven't heard the term 'white yourself up', or whiteness being used as a seperate behaviour for POC, then you're either white, or don't know enough POC (or live in a country where this isn't a thing). For the rest of us living in a white mans world we kind of have to 'white … Continue reading Weird Ways We White Ourselves Up In Order To Assimilate (299/365)

Anyone Else Worried About Our Lack of Prime Minister? (198/365)

This is just a short post but we haven't had a prime minister since the beginning of June and even though Theresa May was a shit bag, we're in this weird power vacuum or waiting for conservatives to make up their mind about who to give the position to. Now my first issue with that … Continue reading Anyone Else Worried About Our Lack of Prime Minister? (198/365)

Britains Polite Racism Problem (157/365)

I feel like the more generalised term for polite racism are micro aggressions, but honestly British culture takes it to a whole new level. The idea of being polite with your prejudice and tricking yourself into believing that you're not racist is both funny and scary. Funny in the sense of it being ridiculous, and … Continue reading Britains Polite Racism Problem (157/365)

Honour Killings are Scarily More Common Than You’d Think (149/365)

We hear the term a lot in the media - 'Honour Killing' - but with every mention is the implication that it's a far away issue. The idea that only people in the East do it, and that's just not true. It happens everywhere, and honestly it's scary as hell. Honour Killing tend to be … Continue reading Honour Killings are Scarily More Common Than You’d Think (149/365)

Bad Things Theresa May has Done as Our Prime Minister (146/365)

Theresa May is probably one of the most hated prime ministers we've had in a while, and that is saying something. Britain as a whole doesn't tend to hold love for their political leaders, but in the age of Brexit, Windrush and our ongoing homeless crisis - she's been pretty horrific. She may be crying … Continue reading Bad Things Theresa May has Done as Our Prime Minister (146/365)

Black Lives Matter in the UK Too! (137/365)

I remember when the Black Lives Matter movement grew on social media, everyone was condemning police brutality and really opening everyones eyes to what actually happens to people of colour when they're approached by the people who are supposed to protect them. I remember speaking about it in university to people as well and everyone … Continue reading Black Lives Matter in the UK Too! (137/365)
