Condoms are your friends, Black People!
There are three things that are inevitably difficult for any young Black male to attain in our times: 1) a good job 2) scoring a date with a “Yellow Bone” while you are unemployed and 3) securing a purchase of condoms at a store when the cashier is an elderly Black woman. For as long as I can remember, sex and everything associated with it, has been regarded as a topic too taboo for...
Our loyalty is not for sale
Sometime during the week I came across an article on the Al Jazeera website. The video insert displayed Yoweri Museveni – the incumbent Uganda President – publicly donating a sack filled with $100 000 in cold hard cash to a youth organization, apparently responsible for developmental work within the community. The glitzy exhibition of the ‘charitable’ deed was broadcast live on national...
What To Think, When Thinking In English
South African residents, more especially the youth, are highly influenced by the usage of the English language as it is one of the commonly employed medium of communication in our country. Amongst the eleven (11) official languages of South Africa, English continues to prevail as the widely spoken language of our schools, even in township or rural schools – whereby the teachings of indigenous...
The Rusty Iron of Thatcher
The news of the death of Britain’s original Iron Lady have been totally rampant on a large magnitude of news bulletins. Margaret Thatcher died at the age of 87 on Monday the 8th of April of 2013. Britain and many other countries are mourning the death of the prolific woman who became the first Prime Minister of the UK. And with death of a person as famous as she is, comments made...
I am not a coy one to admit that I have had quite a significant amount of sexual relationships within the time span of my life. Like any other ordinary young person, I’ve experienced different types of such affairs. The tally comprises of a variety ranging from meaningless sex with total strangers, to organized coitus with fellow female friends (A.K.A Friends With Benefits), and ultimately...
Misogyny is a Bitch
We are all fortunate enough to be amongst the living during the acclaimed 21st century, amidst the year 2013. What this means is that we are living in a glorious period of technological advancements, civil societies and more so, the days in which women rule the world. Through many centuries, women have convincingly transcended from the inferiority that was unfairly bestowed upon them by the male...
The Moral Fibre Of Our Gayneration.
A couple of weeks ago, I attended a Jurisprudence class in which we are taught about the Philosophical areas of law. It was startling to arrive at class and find a white American middle-aged man, serving as a guest lecturer that time, announcing that he will be teaching us about African Moral theories and Ubuntu. I know right!?! An American with an American accent teaching us, Africans, about our...
Girl, Who's your Daddy...No really, who's your...
So you’re a young man looking for a great night out with friends at a local club (if they require you to down more than 4 shots of tequila for the night, they are not your friends, they are assholes), and while your friends are on some serious Hugh Hefner tip, you alone at the bar having an Umbrella-hanging Virgin Cocktail. Any straight man in your position would feel obliged to approach any...
the UGLY truth about BEAUTIFUL women!!
Finding the right words to start a passage or an introductory paragraph to a piece, is always the hardest thing to do in terms of literature, but once you get on track, it’s one smooth sail from there. Same as trying to allure the forever so enigmatic species of nature called women, for the first time. It takes balls the size of DJ Fresh’s head to make an attempt at initiating a...
"There Goes My Baby" - Mary Stopes Clinic...
No one of us chose our date of births, our ethnicity and oh so drop-dead gorgeous looks that we inherited from our parents, because that’s what we are at the end of the day, a product of our parents’ towning activities. Be it your parents planned to have you or not, you had nothing to do with the circumstances that you were born under. So the best and logical thing one can do is to...

4th unwanted anniversary.
Nothing beats that “Wow, you have progressed better than your peers” look an individual gets from elders after enlightening them on your academic achievements. You feel that intrinsic surge to pat yourself on the back to congratulate yourself and your hard work. Then that bright blue sky imagery, of your successes, in your head gets overclouded by the remembrance that the infatuation...

If you believe in science, then it wouldn’t be too far fetched to presume that you also follow the evolution theory. From the Big Bang Theory, to man being a descendant of intelligent primates that still exist today. These are usual and conspicuous physical forms of change we are accustomed to, but what about the change in Man’s manner of utilizing his mind? We have all read about our...
