Michael Jackson Tribute

It is with great sadness that I learnt during the night of Michael Jackson passing from this world with a suspected cardiac arrest.

I grew up in the sixties and had to fight both physically and emotionally every day of my life with racist thugs. From the school playground to Teddy boys coming into our area to fight on a Friday night.

I have fought men and women in my bid to ensure that I have the same rights as every one else and that I am treated fairly in all things.

Throughout that time Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5 were legends. We used to run to the television to see them perform. They were able to instill in us black pride that we could achieve if we wanted to. I still to this day have all of their records and his albums.

He was a troubled genius who set the standards for both song and dance which still prevail even to this day.

This is the picture of Michael Jackson that I care to remember.

One with his brown skin, nappy, full hair and with all of his African and American features in tact.

I would like to offer his family and friends my sincere condolences and to hope that now he will truly rest in peace.

18 Months: Kreative Blogger Award Nomination.

I have been nominated for the Kreative blogger award by Nubian1. Thank you. I shall now share 7 facts about myself:

I love to go out and really dance. I love different types of music from reggae to salsa. I use dance as a form of exercise. This is what can happen when you allow your Daughter to dress you...

I love my new hair dye, Textures and Tones, Flaming Desire.

And the result which is a bright, wonderful summer colour. My friends and family love it. Of course I love my locks and everything locks.

This Champagne is the business and it is the only drink that I can not resist.

Sweets these are my favourites but I still manage to have good teeth.

I went on a holiday to Gambia and fed the Monkeys. They are intelligent, majestic, gentle and beautiful creatures.

I thought I would sneak this picture in. Don't tell.

Finally I love long haul travel and to swim in the Sea. This is the beach where I stayed in Gambia. I have also been to: Dominican Republic, Egypt, Trinidad, Grenada, St Vincent, Montserrat, Margarita, Venezuela, Brazil, Cyprus, Portugal, Spain, France and the list goes on...

Happy hair and please don't copy any pictures or anything else from my blog.
