Channel 4 Documentary series-RACE "The last taboo".

Th above picture is from a series of photos altered to show people in the media and in power of different races. The above is Margaret Thatcher as a mixed race women.

Monday 26th October starts a week of Documentaries exploring questions of Race. Race and intelligence?. Does being mixed race have an advantage?, How racist are you? and black people who are going under the knife to appear more European,and why?.

I will be interested to see how these questions are explored. How far are they going to go to prove the answers in one side of the argument or truly look at the questions in the right and just context.For this to hold true vast and varied amount of subjects will need to be extensively explored.

If this isn't shown to be balanced, my opinion will be known and letters will be written. I encourage many others to do so.

BNP-British National Party Tonight on BBC question time

Must see tonight 10.35pm BBC Question time, the leader of the BNP will be on the panel.

Several people are going tonight to protest against Nick Griffin appearing on Question Time. I was invited but I am happy to watch it from my TV. I absolutely want Nick Griffin on panel tonight and hopefully we will get some answers. Whether or not he will trip himself up is debatable,which many people are hoping. I am sure he has fully prepared himself to cover his statements he has made in the past and the true nature of the party will be carefully contrived, or maybe not will see.

Background information on Nick Griffin below...

Nick Griffin is leader of the British National Party and has been a member of the European Parliament since the 2009 elections.

A smartly-dressed, Cambridge-educated family man, he has written of the need to "normalise" a party which has its roots in the fascist National Front and, when he took over as leader in 1999, was chiefly associated in the public mind with skinheads and swastikas.

At the time, Mr Griffin said the party had to rid itself of the "three H's" which he defined as hobbyism, hard talk and Hitler.

He has portrayed himself as a defender of free speech against the politically correct "liberal establishment", even posing for the cameras with a gag across his mouth at election counts.

But he has a controversial past, which includes a 1998 conviction for incitement to racial hatred relating to material denying the Holocaust.

And to his opponents, his decontamination of the party is only skin deep.

In April 2006, he told the Mail on Sunday: "'Yes, Adolf went a bit too far. His legacy is the biggest problem that the British nationalist movement has to deal with. It just creates a bad image'."

Everyday he wakes up in his million dollar home
His life is like a video, the only reality he knows
He jumps inside of his hundred thousand dollar car
Cruising up the boulevard
Driving pass people living hard
Complains about the gas prices but still supports the war
He complains about his 6-figure salary, tax to feed the poor
He doesn't understand the homeless, doesn't think its genocide
**That millions die from three lethal letters
He does shit to make it better
**And I'm thinking of you

Everyone wants to touch the sky
Nobody wants to reach back
For the ones who are scared to fly
Everybody wants heaven
If you don't want to sacrifice
Don't say nothing, don't say nothing
Don't say nothing
Don't say nothing

[Verse 2]
She watches television full of fabricated show
Thinks the world is just a joke, but oh little does she know
That there is a real life drama happening right outside her door
'Cause She continues to ignore, but she's like the TV - the story repeats
She's searching through the channels
Skipping pass the news, she's more entertained by lies and gossip
'Cause it hurts to see the truth
She complains about the nation
Think it's a waste of time to vote
She says the one that has been corrupted forever
No one tries to make it better
**And I'm thinking who

Everyone wants to touch the sky (Oh-ho)
Nobody wants to reach back
For the ones who are scared to fly (Scared to fly)
Everybody wants heaven (Heaven)
If you don't want to sacrifice (Oh)
Don't say nothing, don't say nothing
Don't say nothing (My hand to my brother)
Oooooo-Hush (Hand to my sister)
Don't say nothing
Don't say nothing
Don't say nothing

Yeah, yeah

BNP-British National Party

Narrowminded morons!!!"

Ghana's Vodafone deal 'illegal'

The sale of Ghana's state-owned telecoms firm to UK's Vodafone was "unconstitutional and illegal", a leaked Ghanaian government report says.

The UK-based mobile company bought a 70% stake in Ghana Telecom (GT) and its assets for $900m (£570m) last year.

The report, seen by the BBC, said GT was undervalued and ultimately the price paid for GT was less than $267m.

President John Atta Mills had promised to investigate the controversial deal before his election last December.

The BBC's David Amanor in the capital, Accra, says Mr Atta Mills' National Democratic Congress party (NDC) had objected to the $900m price tag while they were in opposition last year.

Critics said it was too little for the assets, which included terrestrial, mobile and fibre-optic cable networks and an academy known as Ghana Telecom University.

New Cadbury advert- Your thoughts?

Do you find this advert offensive? I have been hearing some people like this advert and few don't. I am curious to know why?

From what I can see of the advert it's set in Ghana were cocoa beans are produced, the Cadburys chocolate are showing they now come under Fair Trade standards. This means fairer working conditions for all persons who produce the cocoa beans for their chocolate. It was set in a village were the local people were dancing from what its look like to me expressing happiness.

Do you feel from that we were made to look like a joke? If so why?

As Africans/Caribbean's we are known for our joyful celebratory dances. I didn't find anything funny with that. So where is the offensive? If this was set in Brazil and they were dancing to Samaba music throught the streets of the Favalas, would we find that offensive or exotic and beautiful.

Sometimes the question isn't with the advertisers but your own depiction. As far as I am concern joy and the expression of that is universal to all so why is it when we are shown to be there are further associations. I would like to know what are you seeing?

Please see the extended version below.

African migrants seeking UK 'dream'

Panorama's Paul Kenyon visited a derelict house near the French port of Calais to hear why so many young African migrants remain determined to reach Britain.

The cellar steps are thick with oil and the walls a congealed buttery yellow. They're steep and twisting, and someone's daubed graffiti in a language I do not recognise.
Clearing work at a Calais migrant camp
The French government has recently dismantled migrant camps in Calais

At the bottom someone has tried to light a fire, and the charcoal remains have been kicked around in the gloom. There is a stinking curtain across a doorway, and when I tug it, a swarm of silent flies tumble out, and bump around the cameraman's light.

On the other side is the skeleton of an arm chair, some half eaten cans of food and an overwhelming smell of stale urine. Upstairs is not much better.

Here in Calais, this is home to around 30 men and two women. They are mostly young and ambitious and some speak several languages

Yet another fail!!!

Seriously the less I say on this the better. I am beyond disappointed. Remember a previous post about the rapper Roaxnne Shante? She supposedly had a contractual agreement with her previous record label Warner to "fund her education for life". Well that was a FAIL!! This has been found to not be true at all and in fact she continues to lie to cover up the lie. Brilliant!

If you want to read further on the story please click the following link....

This fail post will continue for a bit. I have a few things to get off my chest with black people I keep encountering. It's excellent for my studies meeting such like but frustrating in reality..


Please watch the following video that was recently sent to me....

Ok my thoughts really briefly I love the beat, the energy etc etc, but at certain points of the video they fail BUT maybe it's just me...
