It was Brett Fish in the Study with the Theological Text Book

Monday mid morning i received a whatsapp message from my wife, tbV: How quickly can you make it to Wynberg by train? The answer, as it turned out, was pretty quickly... within forty five minutes she was picking me up and dropping me at The Warehouse where she offices. Within about another thirty, lunch break was over and i found myself studying as part of the LUT group. i'm not gonna lie, i just had to [...]

The next in a series of Race videos with the hope of helping us understand concepts and labels that might be confusing. One of the biggest of these is "white privilege" and in this video, using three different story or analogy vibes i try to give a broader understanding as to what white privilege is all about with the bottom line definition being 'Unearned or undeserved privilege gained purely by virtue/accident of being white'.

Water we going to do

'Scientists have calculated that we would actually save more water by forgoing one pound of beef, or four hamburgers, than by not showering for at least six months.' How about sitting with that one for a moment? Especially if you live in Cape Town where we have just about hit level 4 Water restrictions... What's that you say? With around 11% of drinkable water left in our dams and the rain forecasts not looking to [...]

#MenAreTrash revisited

Some more thoughts on the #MenAreTrash hashtag i visited over here. Clearly #MenAreTrash has got people talking, which again is a good start, and hopefully people are looking deeper than just what feels like an offensive tag to some. So here are some follow up thoughts i wrote on FB: Here's a thought [not mine] - if we men are more upset by a #MenAreTrash hashtag than we are about the crimes committed against women [...]

The second video in my Race with Me series takes a look at the big hairy mammoth-type creature in the room, namely "White Privilege" BUT BEFORE YOU RUN AWAY... take a moment to entertain the possibility that the idea of 'White Privilege' you are against may not be the same as the thing i am talking about: For more Race with Me videos, click here

a journey into #MenAreTrash

i started off quite irritated and frustrated with the #MenAreTrash tag that i've seen pop up all over Facebook this last week. So i eventually started writing a Facebook status on it and literally changed my mind as i was writing... so this may come across as a bit of a clever clickbait make-you-think-one-thing-but-i-am-saying-the-other misdirection but i actually watched my mind change directions as i was typing this on my phone...
