Gavin Redknap aka “Gavros”

I didn’t publish his comments on this blog so he got mad and posted my real name and other details, which were all lies including a link to a site a former neighbour started posting vindictive stuff about me.  It has only been removed recently after I tracked down the owner which wasn’t easy. His […]

Trayvon Martin and the killing of Latasha Harlins

   Even though I am broken hearted my faith is unshattered I WILL ALWAYS LOVE MY BABY TRAY — Tracy Martin (@BTraymartin9) July 14, 2013 A tweet from Trayvon’s father, Tracy Martin after the verdict.   The verdict is in and George Zimmerman was found NOT GUILTY.  It came as no surprise to me in […]

Gary Younge’s Guardian piece on the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmermans aquittal

Gary Younge’s Guardian piece on the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmermans aquittal

I went to bed at about 4.15 am, still angry over the Zimmerman verdict and didn’t get to read Gary Younge’s powerful piece entitled, “Open season on black boys after a verdict like this”  until a few minutes ago, as the Guardian editors have removed it, leaving a message stating it is being ‘investigated’.  It […]

It’s time for some home truths and I AM NOT BACKING DOWN!

It’s time for some home truths and I AM NOT BACKING DOWN!

It appears the group out there in Homerton aren’t going to be happy until they put this uppity black bitch in her place.  I have news for them, they can kiss my black ass. I was still in bed yesterday morning (blood pressure was high and was giddy) when I received a phone call from […]

Sponsor a Scholar Mark Lancaster wannabe pimp and creepy voyeurist, pleads guilty

Sponsor a Scholar Mark Lancaster wannabe pimp and creepy voyeurist, pleads guilty

I imagine the reason,  Mark Lancaster plead guilty yesterday was to spare his wife and children the horror and humiliation of a trial. Men will always stray, but what he did was on a whole other level.  Besides, we didn’t need a trial,  his actions were played out on the video, secretly recorded by journalists […]

Danny O’Shea Murder: Christopher Nathaniel Paul Boadi found not guilty

Danny O’Shea Murder: Christopher Nathaniel Paul Boadi found not guilty

I had almost finished a post on the Danny O’Shea murder trial last Thursday, when the sandman came calling and I had to hit the sack. When I awoke the next morning,  every single post on this blog had been wiped out. Three years worth, gone. Luckily I had back up as did my hosting […]

Looks like Nigella Lawson’s hubby Charles Saatchi, choked her at restaurant

Looks like Nigella Lawson’s hubby Charles Saatchi, choked her at restaurant

Y’all seen the pics of Nigella Lawson’s husband assault her in public? Just a reminder that domestic abuse doesn’t only happen to folks in lower socioeconomic group, brutal men come in all forms, even amongst the genteels. You know me, always skeptical, first thought the photos were, well, “a publicity stunt”, then the rational part […]

Now she can write more novels: Judge Constance Briscoe arrested at her home

Now she can write more novels: Judge Constance Briscoe arrested at her home

Even before Constance Briscoe became a judge I always thought she was a pretty cool broad and wish I had gotten to know her better. Just after she was called to the bar in the early 80′s, she and I worked at a grassroots organization on Kingsland High Road in Dalston. She was the confident […]

Black Britain’s shame: A lost generation of young black males

Another black kid died on Boxing day. Stabbed in the heart by one of his peers after an argument over sneakers. Pointless, but someone saw fit to pull out a knife on Seydou Diarrassouba on the busy side-walk of Oxford Street. If reports that he may have had gang affiliations prove to be true, it’s […]
