My Hopes for 2014

Posted: January 4, 2014 in Uncategorized


The new year is traditionally a time for making resolutions, and promises to do better and try harder.  Here’s a list of things I’d like to see more of (and less of) in 2014.

Less living in fear – more living the dream

Less waste men – more real men

Less baby daddies – more committed fathers.

Less waiting for a Messiah –  more being the change we want to see.

Less begging the man for handouts –  more doing-for-self

Less criticising the things we don’t like, more promoting  the things we do

Less fake tan, fake nails, and fake hair, –  more celebrating natural beauty.

Nicky Minaj - a living breathing example of Black self hatred.







Less skin bleaching, more self-love

Less ‘ain’t nobody got time for that’ – more ‘spending quality time’.

Less ‘Talking about it’ – more ‘Being about it’

Less of ‘my nigga’ – more of ‘my brother’.

Less grand tall buildings ­-  More  homes for families

Less Banker’s bonuses – more worker’s pay-rises

Less jobs for the boys – more jobs for the masses. David Cameron and  Boris Johnson - the Eton/Oxbridge mafia just won't loosen their grip.

Less aristocracy – more meritocracy

Less of a stranglehood by the Oxbridge elite – more access for the rest of us

the occupy movement

Less  bedroom tax – more corporation tax.

Less War on terror – more war on want.

Less trolling – more ‘liking’

Less adding friends on facebook – more making time for friends in real life.

Less super-hero franchise sequels



– more character driven dramas.


Less coverage of the Royal family –  more support for hardworking families

Less Versace, Versace, Versace – more education, education, education

Less fetishisation of youth – more respect for old age.

Less obsessing over celebrity couples – more supporting of struggling parents





Less Kanye and Kim




– more Barack and Michelle



Here’s looking forward to a better 2014. Let’s make it happen………………..
