Why England Fans singing ‘Swing Low’ Negro spiritual should not bother anyone!

We live in an age where you need to little to cause offence to someone else. In fact one would almost be forgiven for thinking that there is little one can honestly say that will not offend someone somewhere in the media or even in everyday life. You can blame this on the fact that we become a more clued up and aware society, or you can put it down to the simple fact that people these days are far more fragile take almost everything to heart and cannot stomach any type of critique or disagreement, so everyone has to stay in the safe zone of ‘Political correctness’. Whatever your thoughts I believe that England rugby fans chanting (As they do) Swing Low sweet Chariot’ to spur on the England Rugby team at games is no reason for anyone to get their ‘Knickers in a twist’ about.

The Great Al Jarreau dies.

Another musical great passes as Al Jarreau dies at 76. We have had to get used to great talents falling away in the last few years, but in truth we have to wonder if any of these great ones can even remotely be replaced.

Why Roots on BBC4 is a must watch for everyone.

It took way too long for the Remake of Alex Haley’s Roots to hit the UK and then only to be aired on BBC4. When I first heard about it I was not impressed. The original was one of those things like ‘Star Wars’ woven into my past that should not be messed with. How could they improve on what was at the time and remains today one of the best TV shows of all time?

UK Great - Toyin Adekale

Forgotten greats: Toyin Adekale, an in depth interview with one of UK’s greats.

There are some tunes that are guaranteed to get everyone on the dance floor or nodding their heads in approval, ‘Four Leaf Clover’ by Toyin Adekale is one of those tunes. One of several that have become classic in the ‘Lovers Rock’ Genre, so what happened to amazing Toyin Adekale the singer of so many great songs?

Making a difference: Head of ZuluLand Gospel Choir Mr Banda helps hundreds of kids get shoes for school in Africa.

It may to us in the West seem like such a simple thing. Shoes for our children to go to school. However in many parts of the world something we take for granted, Shoes, are in rare supply and many children amble to school bare footed or with extremely worn out footwear.

When you think of the Billions donated by the UK and other Western countries of which the UK is probably the highest giver, you wonder where all the money is going? It will always remain the case that giving starts at home and local rather than National or International giving is the way forward.

President Obama delivers his farewell speech.

Barack Obama’s farewell speech: will he be the first and last black president?

We have been spoilt having Obama as President for the last 8 years. We may not realise it now but soon enough we shall. For people of colour especially this was a watershed something we many of us thought we would never really see in our life time. It was one of those things that only the movies made tangible with films. However Obama made it a reality and he has proved to be perhaps one of the most dignified Presidents of all time.
