Quick Note: Today’s roundup

So today's readings have taken me from reading through 2011 working paper titled 'Global Inequality: from Class to Location, from Proletarians to Migrants' by Branko Milanovic (2011). A different formatted version can be found here, there may be some discrepancies. I then moved onto looking at the question of inequality in terms of mediation, visibility, [...]

what of my brother?

What of my Brother? Whose life has moved along many different lines... Whose experiences could use up all of England's inkwells, Whose linguistics could have surpassed even the Bard's lines, What of him the large precariat Lion, strong but inwardly howling.. What now? What of his life? What then? Where should he hide? Why? Whose [...]

Year 2021.. Or so it begins

-scene- Year 2021 The world is a different place. A place of Cultural creators. Cultural tasters. Cultural dictators. Where it is your link to belief that assigns where you reside.

This week’s lesson: Know and Respect yourself

Sometimes you have to learn that you're working on something bigger than yourself. The world. And the ones who know and understand, are the ones who will stick around. After all what else do you need but that? My internal thoughts to myself.. as I struggle with shedding the overly-empathic and supportive self. I've helped [...]

Marking difference begets miscommunication, which breeds misunderstanding and could lead to feelings of contempt, hatred and hurt. Yesterday's class on colour, difference, browning and Jamaica was great and very, very interesting, not least of all because of a small breakout session as we discussed with our peers the question ; 'How is mixing problematic in [...]

What did Eve-Hawaa feel..

They look for signs where there are not, Fate in the fateless, I would rather spend a day in supposed sin, Then allow an eternity in which we all Explained our misdeed. What can you not see? This is me not creating a "wrong" destiny. There is some pattern here emerging, This is life washed [...]
