She was here, she was there, she was everywhere
Moving so fast, she blurred my stare
Talk about busy
Sis made me dizzy

Always on the move, like she had something to prove
She would get dressed while I was still nude
So, there was never really a flow
After each climax, she had to go

We just had a thing
I guess you could call it a fling
I call it an intersection
Paths crossed without a connection

Smiling faces
Short embraces
A colorful phase
Lasted exactly 45 days.

While racism can simply be defined as the dislike and resentment of another human being, based on skin colour, and is often narrowed down to a black and white topic, the subject is a deeper and more colourful one, where various races loathe for the same vain reason of having a different pigmentation, and apparently, what was designed to be a splash of beauty on Earth became dissected in which people were classified into groups called ethnicities (an application of the human colour chart and birth of colourism).

This colourism is better known as racism.

And although the rainbow chart of humans has no mandate for which colour stays on the left or on the right of the versus in racism, the most dominant duel has always been marked up as Whites vs Blacks and as history proved time and time again, that the White race holds an unyielding first place in the ranking of being racist, I am pointing this topic of racism to the subject’s most dominant force (White People).

There are two types of White racist: A conscious racist and a sub-conscious racist.

A conscious racist is an “in your face” racist, bold, up font, no-shame-in-their-game racist, proud to be white type, who strongly believe in White Power and that all other races were ordained by God to be inferior to the Whites; especially those of the Black race.

The conscious racist has my admiration and a sprinkle of my respect, because he or she is not lost or confused; they are aware of their stance and beliefs and it is clearly outlined how someone of my colour is perceived and will be treated by them.

Then there are the sub-consciously racist White people, who are not aware that they are actually racist.

Commonly, sub-consciously racist Whites believe that they are in favour of equality for the Black race, but do not expect or accept Black people being more successful than them on any perceivable levels; furthermore, this same group embraces the concept of positive Black Achievements, but only as an allowed privilege, given by the White race, out of pity, for the offering sense of equality.

Ask them if they are racist and the answer is an alarming, scornful reaction and an instant “No!”

Simple disagreements which cause an immediate emerge of skin colour sighting over point of views is a typical behaviour of a sub-conscious racist, and having any level of comfort in knowing that being White is a qualification versus another race is a top attribute of sub-conscious racism, but the number one place of sub-conscious racism has to be given to the “weaponizing” of racism, where it is often holstered but used at advantage points before being retracted as a sign of being mutual again.

Now, if you are White, ask yourself if you are racist, sub-consciously racist or none.

May your demise be an emblem of finality and change to the history of black oppression and racial division in the United States of America, and one which will inspire human equality worldwide. – Ian T. Sebàs –

Piers Morgan, a self-absorbed and condescending, British journalist and co-anchor for a UK television program titled, “Good Morning, Britain”, recently used the ITV’s platform to air his prejudicial and bias views toward the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.

Meghan Markle, an African American woman, who won the heart of Prince Harry of the British Royal Family before marrying him on May 19, 2018 has been received by the British public with scrutiny and mixed feelings, mainly because she is black and is of US nationality.

Piers Morgan is a middle age British man, television presenter and self-acclaimed intellect, who, in my eyes, has led a career of television interviews laced with sarcasm and indirect insults as ways to heighten ratings and create buzzing feedback from viewers.

In a recent broadcast, Meghan Markle attended the infamous Wimbledon, to support one of the world-renowned champions in tennis, Serena Williams.

Apparently, Meghan’s overnight gain of royal status has gone to her head and she forgot that one of her duties as a royal is to serve the public in more ways than one, and with obvious naivety to her expected behaviours in her new role, the US actress-turned-Duchess requested that no photos of her should be taken while being in attendance at the public arena.

Personally, I shunned at Meghan’s request with sneer and found it to be ridiculous and imprudent; she has gotten too big for her boots, too fast. Wimbledon is a public arena, which hosts public events, if the Duchess of Sussex required privacy, then she should have arranged some kind of tinted glass box, to sit in, with the management team of the arena.

Still, I remain a fan of the young royal couple, Harry and Meghan, and excused her behaviour with the fact that she is still new to her position and deserves a grace period to understand it all.

For her request of “no photographs”, the British public, to no surprise, attacked her wildly on social media, and rightly so; plus, I believed that those attacks will definitely help shape Meghan’s public behaviour in the future.

However, Piers Morgan, in pursuit of recognition, took to the air and while commenting on the conflicting episode, stated that Meghan should go back to America, if she wants privacy.

In my opinion, Piers Morgan is an Ass-Hole, bias and probably racist, who obviously grows bitter at the sights of interracial relationships and despise the fact that a black woman is now a part of the royal family.

Piers Morgan is a child, desperate for attention and does not care which type he receives, as long as his name is being mentioned, he considers it a win, and for that reason, I will say his name once more to soothe his tantrum, “Piers Morgan is an ass-hole!”

Seeing Souls

I am blind to features
I hear and feel, but never see
God’s creatures
My sight sees a black hole
Flickering lights, representing souls
Powered to be pure
Worthy to explore
Close your eyes
Rid all whys
See no more
Blindness is a cure.
