There is only one plausible explanation for the shooting of an unarmed man in the back by a law enforcement officer while said unarmed man runs away from said law enforcement officer. Considering the multiplicity of such occurrences and the repeated claims that these officers react so drastically because they fear for their lives further bolsters the reasoning behind this explanation. It must be concluded that black men in the United States of America have superhuman powers; because the only reason to fear an unarmed man is that there is a possibility that s/he can disintegrate you to ashes with their killer Cyclops-like stare or cause lightning to electrocute you to death as X-Woman Storm can.

Yes, you are looking at a photo of dad spelled out in groundnut husks.
Well, I’ll start with how I’m a super mega huge fan of boiled groundnuts. The crack, the crunch, the taste just give me life. Every year, a massive festival goes on in my heart in honour of the first nuts of the season. No jokes, evidence below:
So I was going through a daily Guardian news update and this article caught my eye. Why? I saw these three words: me, before, and you.Nothing incredible about them, right? But in that order, they form the title of a book that touched my heart. I read Me Before You almost two years ago, and it touched me so deeply I blogged about it here.

Yesterday, 2 years to the day the Chibok girls were kidnapped, there was special coverage of the events surrounding the incident on CNN.

How long will you show … Continue reading While the world is falling apart… You are gods.
“…. But they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.” 2 Corinthians 10:12 (NKJV)
I’ve had this topic in my mind to write about for a while now. I had just picked up my computer to start, when a young girl asked me a question that so perfectly tied in with the thoughts in my head. Here’s how the conversation went:

Every kinky-haired sister out there knows that shrinkage is real! Too real! And a lot of us turn to blow-drying to give us some respite from that particular issue. It took me a while to finally get round to blow-drying my hair, and I saved it for a special occasion. It was my graduation! Whoopeedoo! It was sometime around my 2nd-year post-relaxer anniversary. I had decided to do a flat twist-out style I had seen on YouTube (I can’t find the specific video I watched, but there a ton of tutorials out there; just Google). And I thought to blow-dry my hair to get added length. So, I went for it. Continue reading “My Very 1st Blow-Out”
We go way back, my dad and me:-D. Yeah, I know you just rolled your eyes. But we do! Right from the time, he stood over my cot protecting my hour-old self from mosquitoes. Yup, he did that. It’s been over 2 decades now and it’s been a series of interesting experiences. Long story short. He calls it as he sees it. He’s genuine through … Continue reading It’s Fathers’ Day!
