Lily Allen Reports Racist Solider & Gets Twitter Backlash!

Screen shot Of Lily Allen's Twitter timeline


The older I get the more I come to realise that my country of birth is REALLY racist, while of course this is a very saddening realisation to have to come to, it doesn't particularly surprise me.

According to reports British singer Lily Allen has reported a solider for racism abuse sent to her via Twitter. And rightly so, the tweet sent to Allen by Twitter user Harry Wilson said:
"Just seen you bought s*** I mean adopted a child from Africa."
Apparently commenting on the resent speculation that Allen has adopted a black baby, the comment is totally offensive and add completely uncalled for. Though the thing that gets me most isn't the comment itself but the huge wave of abuse Allen is receiving in support for this racist tweeter.

Following the star on Twitter I was alerted of the situation from her recent retweets from people condemning Allen for reporting a 'national hero'. He blood well ain't my hero!!
It’s disgusting, I don't care what job this guy does his comment was deeply racist and he deserves the repercussions for his public outburst. How anyone could condone what was said simply because he's in the army is beyond me. The British army isn't all white and the current wars being fought are on non-white territory, soldiers like him have no place in our army since their racial hatred is a liability.

The fact that he's in the army actually makes it worse in my eyes, I don't want my hard earned tax money supporting racists! Knowing all to well that the British defence services are rife with racism, and not just from news reports but from personal accounts from people I know in the services. It pleases me knowing that Lily Allen's actions could mean one less racist our black (or other non-white) servicemen will need to endure.

It really sickens and angers that such ignorance still occurs!

Lily Allen good on you for reporting this racist, his comment was racially offensive and I only hope the MOB does the right think and discharges his for gross misconduct, he does not deserve the publics compassion and certainly does not deserve the title as one of our nations hero!

Music Review: The Weeknd Trilogy

Rarely do I buy new music these days, with it being even more of a rarity that I buy music from male artists. Reason being that I just can not stomach the lies and hypocrisy commercially viable male solo artists spin with their predictable music and unoriginal public image clashing fiercely with the reality of their private lives.

With music today being so limited in the topics sung about and (in making myself sound old - which I'm not) the lack of experience, soul and true artistry in today's predominately young artists, I was surprised and delight to find out about Canadian singer The Weeknd. I'm told that this artist has actually been around for a while, though it is only now that The Weeknd's music is reaching commercial heights with the song Wicked Games played regularly on the radio. While I have liked the song since hearing it, it wasn't until I had seen its music video that I really became interested in what this young male solo artist has to offer.

Rise Of The Beta Male

Interesting article in last week’s Shortlist discussing the demise of the 'Alpha' male and rise of the 'Beta' male.
In a nutshell, the article was discussing recent culture changes in male behaviour and attitudes which has contributed to the emergence of the Beta male.
Beta males are smart sensitivity men who invest in their appearance, they are said to have turned their backs on the old Alpha male ways of male domination, aggression and exploitation, instead they embody intelligence, charisma and are liberal thinking. According to the article beta males are changing the way we do business!

I was pleased to see that the article had made a connection with this new male attitude and behaviour to the adaption (for the better) to the feminist movement and the study's of masculinity, since the process of women demanding and slowly achieving gender equality has encouraged many men to relieve themselves of the emotional castration once promoted as the alpha male image of…

Book Review: We Real Cool: Black Men and Masculinity

We Real Cool take's a deep look at black masculinity and offers up a fantastic critical analyst of the pros and cons of being a black male in the US.
Hooks acknowledges early in the book that as a female her view point on this subject maybe subjective, though We Real Cool is written with much intellect and heart. It is with great passion for her black males that Hooks writes with, saying that the lack of critical writings on the subject by black males was the catalysis for why she wrote the book.

The book is a real eye opener on the issues and daily assault out black males face and easily related to black males in the UK. Hooks dicusses black male incarceration, Hip-Hop & gang culture, black male misogyny and absentee fatherhood. As a female reader the book spoke volumes to me, and in usual fashion Hooks drew from her personal experiences and relationships with black males when writting the book. This not only helped draw parallels between the black males in my life (i.e. fat…
