Open Letter to One PG One
What’s up, PG, You nearly were a G to reckon with, but sadly, you are but one PG with an ‘I’ missing from the middle. I hear you were caught championing drugs and misogyny? I hear you are now being shunned because of the lyrics you spewed when you were less than wise – life is a female dog, matey. I do not like hip hop, I am a reggae man, you might know it, it has roots in Jamaica but is one of the big genres under the black music umbr ...

Share Protect the Buddha from those Selfie-takers!
mutafire 2015-8-25 19:58
It is always hypnotizing to be in a Buddhist temple. I will never get used to it. Each time I am in a temple I shut up and gaze at the statues and take in all details about the temple, but one thing I also cannot resist is try to capture that golden beauty on film. And that is an issue not just for me, but for many tourists and temple minders. I have been to many holy sites in China, The Jaded Buddha Temple in Shanghai, The Grottoes in Datong, Temple ...

Lewis Hamilton - Jerk or Innocent Winner?
Lewis Hamilton, 30, sealed victory in Shanghai at Chinese Grand Prix yesterday, his second win in three races. He celebrated with 'trademark' move of spraying champagne in the face of the hostess - much to her surprise. But Object, which campaigns against sexism, said he should apologise for his 'selfish and inconsiderate' actions. Others called the driving ace 'an embarrassment to the UK', while another said it showed he was an 'ignorant clown'&nbs ...

Share The European Response to the Kenyan Massacre is Offensive
mutafire 2015-4-11 08:24
Gunmen allegedly linked to the now notorious Al Shabab recently wreaked havoc in Kenya extinguishing 147 young intellectual lives at Garissa University. The images of the dead lying in pools of blood and the accounts recounted by survivors are bloodcurdling. France has just announced that it would pay fees for 109 students injured in the attack to, in the words of the French ambassador to Kenya, Remi Marechaux , help Kenya deal with the thr ...

Share Chinese Restaurant in Kenya: "No Blacks Here"
mutafire 2015-3-26 15:42
Almost all people that live in Kenya are black, all shades of black, ebony black, pitch black, chocolate black and the type of black you would accept. With all that data in mind, a Chinese family had the audacity to set up a restaurant in Kenya and then put up a notice saying that Africans were not allowed in the eatery. Black country, black democracy, with non-discrimination clauses in the constitution and then one person, a foreigner, by the way, says, oh, I can expl ...

Share Will China and USA fight in our Lifetime?
mutafire 2014-12-11 07:49
“If China continues its impressive economic growth over the next few decades, the US and China are likely to engage in an intense security competition with considerable potential for war,” wrote American realist, John Mearsheimer, in his opening remarks of his argument that ‘China’s rise will not be peaceful at all .’ Thucydides wrote that the Peloponnesian War was inspired by the fear which the rise of Athens caused in an established Sparta. This has come to ...

Share A Shower a Day …In Your Dreams

“How many students are in this school?” I asked. About a thousand, I was told “Where are the showers?” I asked. ‘There are no showers here,’ said the kid. I went blank, silent if you will. That was me in Shandong Linyi. This just past summer I chose to volunteer as an English teacher at Menglianggu Middle school. Menglianggu is in Linyi. I loved my summer adventure, the kids loved ...

Share Not So Han Hao
mutafire 2014-8-9 10:59
I went to my favourite restaurant this other day and I saw it all, it still haunts me to this day. And it was just the first in a string of signs that seem to indicate that Chinese people are only united on national issues… See a huge Chinese brother, bare muscles, tattoos and all accidentally tripped a woman splattering her food all across the restaurant. Naturally, the woman freaks and throws a tantrum at the brother, the brother doesn’t apologise, he stands up shou ...

Share Letter to My Chinese Father-In-Law
mutafire 2014-8-3 08:50
Dear Sir, I hope this letter finds you in the best of health and wish the day is a cool one there in Harbin, unlike here in Shandong, where it is hell-grade hot as I write. I write this letter to protest your reaction to my dating your daughter. She has told me all about it. Man to man, I dare say, I am ashamed on your behalf and will pretend you were drunk in all the instances you did the things you did. When she told you she was in love with me, ...
