Lets say u were wrongly accused of a crime and had 2 spend 5 years in prison. You had a choice of serving ur time in the worst prison in Nigeria or the most notorious prison in Iraq. Which one u choose?
I choose Iraq for some funny reason it felt safer with the Americans and Brits there and all.
This was his response:
Really? Even tho u don’t speak the language and they would probably take u for a westerner because u are black?
Which would your choose.
By the way after all that this is what he choose:
Well one is just a rough country and the other is a fully fledged war zone so for obvious reasons
Speaking of prisons the battle over the flesh and sin is fought in the mind, break away from your mental slavery.
Peace and thanks for passing by.
Even if its with the aid of a compressed gas tank and a professional holding your hands sometimes.
Any who check it out. A childhood dream come true in the deep waters of Turkey. Yeah and don't want the middle finger I seem to have lost my will power under water, whatever gesture the guide told me to do I followed like a fool. Ah well. ohh almost forgot, the special lady in the pic lookin all scared is Lazenya my other half.
can anyone guess why they were coming so close?
P.S Gods love can go deeper than any ocean and if you feel your a too deep in sin and away from him, rejoice for he will find you. I would rather get deep into God's love than the love of the World.

The destination is far but the way things are looking with my gran uncle selling the house and with two weeks to find a room to rent I think I would be touching base in Accra sooner than later.
Stay saved Stay Blessed

I would leave you to make your own inferences.
I hope you enjoy them and please post a message to let me know what you think.

Featuring Mark Jenkins
Exhibition Dates: Fri 13th of April - Sat 12th of May
Washington DC-based installation artist Mark Jenkins has over the past four years experimented with clear packing tape (sellotape) to create cast-based sculpture that he installs in cities as a form of non-permission based street art, a sort of “off-wall” graffiti. The works’ humour and surreal nature has helped generate huge interest amongst the public and re-engaged them with their built environment. Jenkins is now bringing his art to the UK, and for his first solo show at the Lazarides gallery he will present an assemblage of sculptures and documentary street installation photographs.
I will be posting my own Photographs soon, so hold on.
Peace and thanks for passing by.

forced multiculturalism is an afront to the human condition. "white privledge" seems to be thrown around a lot without any true evidence to suggest that it exists. anecdotes are not evidence. support for reparations is almost completley an emotional argument and we all know how that is a logical fallacy. slavery is consistantly used as an excuse, even long after its effects were tangible. if you want to keep playing the race card and continue down a path that does nothing to repair the past then keep pushing a devisive issue like reparations. if you want to actually do something for the "black community" attempt to change the culture that places no value on education, hard work, or personal responsibility.
before you get your panties in a bunch about the last statment realize that its not geared towards the entire black community, just most of it. as long as race baiters like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton can continue to have greater influence over the community then Thomas Sowell, Clarence Thomas, Condolezza Rice and a whole host of others who don't portray themselves as victims, the black community will continue to slip downward and demand false entitlement when they should be far more critical of their own culture and put some emphasis on the things that will actually change their lot in life.
I would be interested in hearing your response to this...thank you
Firstly I would like to thank you for coming by and letting me know what you think about the post, I appreciate it. Though it would have been nice to know who this is or where you are (lol).
Secondly no one ever said multiculturalism (
Following from this question it sound disgraceful and insulting that slave owners were paid 20 million pounds at the time of the abolition of the slave trade. Money helps but in my books the conditions that maintain the neo-colonial economic and societal frameworks that prompted slavery and colonialism need to be removed to enable true self determination of African people on the continent and in the Diaspora. Were not reparations to Holocaust victims partially based on emotional considerations and have the British naval officers not been given the unusual privilege of selling their stories as a form of emotional compensation through vast monetary gains? I have not used slavery as an excuse for anything but an explanation from many things. The effect of slavery are truly with us and will be for a long time, are the effects of the holocaust, the World Wars, and the Cold War not with us today? Also I have not played the so called race card with regards to this blog or to attain or justify any thing I have ever done or achieved in my life. To me that is a creation of people who to not want to be confronted with difficult truths or lies. Man should be judged on their actions and not reactions to their skin colour.
The past should be resolved through dialogue, forgiveness and acceptance of forgiveness which should lead to tangible change for all parties. I am very happy that you have talked about the culture of the ‘Black Community’ is there really a Black Community (UK) that has a distinctive uniform culture? I think the answer is no. Is there an African Culture? I think the answer is Yes! The African culture of which I am a proud product of definitely places absolute importance on the value of education, hard work, or personal and group (extended family and tribal responsibility). It is ironic that you speak of responsibility for actions when Tony Blair and the Queen cannot even accept responsibility for (GB) on behalf of nations in the form of an apology for the role of this nation in Slavery when African nations have done so an initiated programmes such as the Joseph project (Ghana) to correct these wrongs.
Since you have so much insight on the character of the Black Community in which most of them have been stereotyped by your characterisation, I would like to point out that it takes a village to raise a child and therefore ‘Black Leaders’ appointed by black people as true representatives or self made Black people who have ‘made it’ cannot have total influence on Black people as a result of the slave trade which has scattered us on so many cultures effectively destroying our culture and enforcing an alien culture and environment on us. Therefore is the current Black culture you mentioned truly representative of Black people in the Diaspora or is it just the remnants of what could be salvaged from slavery and what is being mimicked form their new ‘homes’?
The Black community has flaws and problems just like any other community and yes we are working on them, not through begging or reparations but through confronting the realities of this world.
May God Bless You.
P.S your post did not have much to do with my video blog but rather inferences on issues such as reparations which require a more intensive forum to discuss through face to face dialogue.

Since most people know its been 200 years since the supposed abolition of the slave trade it is quite refreshing that some one 'Toyin Abegtu' has spoken out for numerous muted black people, most shamefully, black politicians in the UK on the effects of slavery and the shameful nature of the 'celebration' of the abolition. When you have ridiculous, propagandist and outwardly stereotypical and 'racist' programmes showing such as 'The Last Slave' by Channel 4 in 2007 UK then you know there is a problem. Black people in this nation need to wake up a break the mental, economic and behavioural slavery that we are still under today. Until the harsh truths of slavery are dealt with by all citizens in this nation regardless of colour or ethnicity then we will continue to have ten year old black kids being murdered, black kids underachieving in education, a skewed 'hip hop' gangster mentality that is endemic with both black and white youth today. When a society (Blacks youths in the UK) only have African American musicians and British sports men and sports women as their primary role models then you know we have a llllllllooooooooooooooonnnnnnnggggggggg (African accent) way to go. I pray that God will cause a stir that will bring change. Believe me change is coming in this nation that has lost its morals, fails to apologise for the past organised subjugation of other races and has adopted modernity and materialism as its religion.
The REVOLUTION shall be OMNIPRESENT

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm, life isn't always fair, and maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting strategies (adults, not children are in charge).
His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a six-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job they themselves failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer Aspirin, sun lotion or a sticky plaster to a student; but could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became
contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you
couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar can sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to
realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap,
and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is survived by three stepbrothers; I Know my Rights, Someone Else is to
Blame, and I'm a Victim.
Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.
