  • Matthew Healy – Another “Ironic” Racist

    During the conversation, Healy mentioned that he once messaged Ice Spice on Instagram, which opened the floodgates for Friedland and Mullen to refer to her as an “Inuit Spice Girl,” saying: “This chubby Chinese lady. ‘Yeah, I rap and [make] music.’ Do they talk like that? Do Inuits talk like that?” What followed was their…

  • RIP Sidney Poitier

    Thank you for being there, sir.

  • Some Indian

    Just got this charming comment on my Your Woman video: After a lifetime of this shit, I am not surprised.

  • Another Outsider

    However, Dorothy endured heartbreak at Aberystwyth as well as acclaim. Sheela Bonarjee still has the battered black exercise book in which her aunt collated her verse. Alongside one of the poems, Dorothy jotted down a note: “Written at the age of 22 when a Welsh student after 3 years of secret engagement dropped me because…

  • More Racist Shenanigans

    I was out in Mosh again last night, having a lovely emo time. I was with a couple of friends and another had gone to the bar. He came back with Racist David in tow. Yes, Racist David who thinks this is the height of comedy ->  I was dumbfounded. When I’d flagged his bullshit…

  • Why Is Your Band Called White Town?

  • Racists On Facebook

    So, I’m scrolling through my newsfeed and I read this “joke” above that’s actually the most sick, dehumanising racism which *two* of my white “friends” have liked. What the fuck? I post it up, call them out and instantly another white male leaps to their defense, saying that I need “to chill” and that he “needs context” for…

  • On Racists And Sea Lions

    The ignorance of some white people just staggers me. If anyone raises racism or cultural appropriation, they immediately flip into full-on sea lion mode or, even worse, into dismissive troll mode. Here’s how I see it: Imagine I’m in a public space, say waiting in line at a cafe. Someone prods me and says, “Ow! You’re…

  • Cultural Appropriation Is Not New

    “White people began to come to Harlem in droves. For several years they packed the expensive Cotton Club on Lenox Avenue. But I was never there, because the Cotton Club was a Jim Crow club for gangsters and monied whites. They were not cordial to Negro patronage, unless you were a celebrity like Bojangles. So…
