"White Allies" PLEASE STOP. This blog that is so wonderfully run is for POC. It is our safe space, it is where we can share our experiences, our thoughts, our feelings, and you are ruining this for us. You call yourself an ally and then you barge your way into our space then get mad when we get pissed off. Just fucking stop! Your opinions, you thoughts, your what the fuck ever is not necessary here. If you find the need to message these nice people about how you're a good ally, YOU'RE NOT.

  • "what will your uncles and aunts say?"
  • "look at your cousins! why don’t you be more like them!!"
  • "why are you hell bent on ruining our family?"
  • "you’re ruining our reputation"

La folie Almayer (Chantal Akerman, 2011)


In Photos: Portraits by photographer Jalani Morgan.

It’s always strange and a bit surreal to me when I look at a photograph of strangers and somehow manage to feel as though the person behind the lens has so aptly managed to capture the essence of those pictured. Perhaps it’s a bit of romanticism on my part, but I can’t help but feel that way when looking at the work of photographer Jalani Morgan. What may on the surface seem to be a simple portrait becomes an intensifying three-way relationship between the subject, the photographer and viewer.  A two-dimensional image is brought to life and in a matter of seconds, upon gazing at Morgan’s portraits, I have no option but to feel a close connection to the unknown faces captured by his lens.

Jalani Morgan is a portrait, fine art and documentary photographer. 

Born in Toronto, Ontario, and raised in Scarborough. He was influenced by his parents’ teachings of the African Diasporas and politics and through that is interjected into his art. 

He produces work that investigates the representation from the African diaspora.

Currently he is studying at York University in Toronto obtaining his degree in Anthropology and African Studies.



I’m so tired of people who are a minority hurting their oppressors back as retaliation. Your hurtful actions against your oppressor are not justified, even if you are being oppressed. You’re just becoming the same kind of person they are. So stop.

This the type of shit white people say that let you know they not really about this anti-oppression life.


2.8 million Muslims in the UK and only 2000 filled out a government survey that could possibly lead to significant ease for Muslims in the future with a Shari’ah-compliant student loan.

The government have contacted 1st Ethical basically saying that such a poor response figure really doesn’t show a significant problem with the interest-based loans system in the first place. What is going on?! Even if this doesn’t concern you directly think about your brothers and sisters as well as your children for the future

Please fill out the survey and share through your networks.
