So its been a while since I’ve even opened my blog, can’t say I have a good enough reason for being away but maybe my creative juices have been dry. But today I felt a need to say something thanks to YouTube comments.


This is going to be a mini rant on Racism be warned.

Okay, first check out this video;

Then I highlight a few comments;

Hmmm, makes you wonder doesn’t it…

  • Wait, 86% of rape will reduce just by vaporizing all black people? How come no one else has thought of this before. The world will be a Utopia without black people. Lets start the witch hunt, where did I put my pitchfork and match sticks.
  • Black people have a low IQ. Awesome. All those black people with awards, PhD and honor degrees you were conned, return them immediately to the source.
  • Women with 6 to 8 children from 6 to 8 different men. Wow! I am missing alot of my family member. Dear http://www.familytree.com, Where is my family?

So…

According to these people, blacks are evil incarnate and we should all be locked into one continent where we can harm ourselves as much as we want.We are promiscuous, dumb, thieves and beggars and we should all be rounded up, put in a boat and sent on back to wherever we came from.

I just can’t understand the racist beliefs some people hold. It’s simplistic thinking to typecast an entire race based on the doings of a small portion. Yes, black people complain about slavery but they have a right to since it happened to them and their ancestors and because of that the vast majority of countries that were enslaved have low economic growth hence all the aid they are given by economic giants cause they are neighborly and to boost relations cause they might have resources that they don’t.

If you ship all black people to Africa and as Africans we unite and refuse your imports where would you get a market? The all white continents wont be richer and safer now, huh? Cause no market means no money, no money means a rise in crime rate, which means you would have jumped from the frying pan to the fire.

I still believe we should bring back some Old Testament kind of punishments for people who spew hate that might be construed as facts by others.

Portrayal of Africa…

When you hear Africa what comes to your mind?

Is it this?

365427

Or this?thika super highway

Cause the two pictures are from the same country.

I don’t know if its just me but I hate how Africa is portrayed in the media. And by media, I don’t just mean the news, though they are up there in the “I’ll burn your studio down cause you know nothing about us” category. I mean photographs, books, in music, basically everywhere. I read this book once and the author, not naming names, was doing a piece with the setting in Uganda, and she literally wrote that in the whole town – Uganda is a country not a town – there was only one hotel and it was the only place they could charge their satellite phone. SATELLITE PHONE! Are you kidding me? I get a signal in my bathroom.

Really does everyone out of Africa believe this is how we live?

or this?

Cause again they are both in the same country.

Am I saying that the first images don’t really happen and that we all live in ten thousand sq/ft houses with pools? Fudge no! I live in an apartment with my mom and we most definitely don’t have a pool or an elevator for that matter, hence why am this skinny. Stupid stairs! But where in the world does that really happen. Am just saying stop saying we still walk bare foot on dirt roads, have no electricity and we live with Simba in our back yard. I’ve seen a lion maybe once or twice and it wasn’t in the tree at the back of my house but in an animal orphanage and in Lion King!

Purple Monday.

Couldn’t be red, it’s Monday!

Kinks…

This is a weird topic but I had to bring it up, BDSM, primarily spanking. If you were raised in most parts of Africa this is the kink you will have most issues with. Reasons, we were beaten almost everyday for every conceived slight. Late for school? The teacher beats. Failed a class? The teacher beats you or depending on your parents, your patents too. So there is simply no way to associate pain and sexy fun.

Hump Day…

Weird facts you don’t want to know but I’ll tell you anyway.

Secrets of international toilets.

Australian toilets flush counter clockwise. Africa has probably the highest number of pit latrines. Japan, highest number of technological forward toilets. India needs more toilets. Kenya has something called flying toilets, which is pretty disgusting.

Truth by Cici standards.

Cry for help…

As a people, we like to bury our heads so far in the ground, trying to pretend that the problems we have, are something else. The answer might be staring at you right in your face but we just assume it will fix itself and ignore it. No matter how much a cry for help we might offer, our pleas are laughed away like it is nothing but just a joke or something that came with the boat.

I might not be as old or as experienced as the people around me, or even my peers but I understand that, even if you sweep the problem under the rug, it will just keep growing and explode in your face. Most are afraid to speak out, to show emotion, to show that they have a problem.

It shouldn’t be hard to say am not better. That I need help. To speak out and just say I need someone. The burden carried is too heavy for just me. But we are society that likes to hide. To close our eyes and just say, its not there. But, we all need a light bulb moment. We need to understand that the excuse,its a white mans disease, is not sufficient.

Am haunted by the ghost of a past I wasted. By a present where I crave company, but seek solitude to hide away my difference. By a future that is too far away, out of reach and blanketed by a mist. I cannot see past today and even today is fuzzy. I want out. Of this life of my ghosts, of the depression, of the self hate, of the emptiness.

Am scared shitless of what might happen if I were to lose the fight. They say its good to know yourself and your reactions but you know what, eff you! I know what my reactions will be and they will not be the pretty psycho babble you preach. It will be devastation, it will be pain, it will be blood.

I need an out. We all need an out. Before the voices, begin to sound right.

Weird facts you don’t want to know but I’ll tell you anyway.

How dumb is your man?

So am starting a new segment called, “How dumb is your man?” Am just gonna post odd facts I hear or read on the internet, the radio, the guard at my apartment block, you know everywhere!! šŸ˜› So lets begin…

Sometimes it’s good to listen to local news. Apparently, a survey conducted on Kenyan men and their use of contraceptives showed that 75% of them did NOT know how to use condoms. Most of the research findings are not suited for innocent minds like mine but I’ll still state them. šŸ˜› It is so bad that sometimes they forget the condoms in you know… hint hint!! So my question is simple, how dumb is your man? Hope they ain’t in this 75% pile…

PS: Please do not shoot the messenger, these are not qualified facts, am just reporting!

Bride price or Ownership…

If at one point in your life you were ever in a business class, you would know the meaning of price but in layman terms, it is simply the amount given as payment for something on sale. And if you buy something doesn’t it mean you own it in one way or another? So really, by making a man, or woman in some parts of the world, pay dowry aren’t you giving him ownership and all the rights that go with it?

In Africa, dowry is like an ultimate law that can’t be broken. It is so intense that in some communities, failure to pay it and if by sheer bad luck your wife dies, they will not let you bury her but say you don’t have that right. It has become a way of cheating your spouse out of his money. I know of a lady who went to her Dad to say that the hubby’s family was so rich that he should request a 100Ā  camels but tell them to sell the camels and bring the money cause he doesn’t have a farm to keep them. Do you know how much 100 camels are worth? I don’t know either šŸ˜› but lets just say the Dad made millions from them.

I think its an outdated practice that really should have stopped with our ancestors! This is what breeds wife beaters, cause of thoughts like I own you and thus I could do whatever I want. And this is not even a theory anymore, I talked to an educated man with a really good job and in a position of influence and he told me that, “Beating my wife is not wrong, am just disciplining her!” And people have the nerve to ask me why I don’t think marriage is in the cards for me.

So really, by us continuing this custom of a bride price, aren’t we saying women are commodities just like a can of coke, to be used and disposed of when we are empty?
