‘Get woke’ | The Community
Easy villains are comforting. There have been some hate groups in the news recently and they certainly qualify as easy villains. I would never join one of those groups and I’m delighted to condemn them in the strongest possible terms. Further, I’m pleased to be part of a conversation about how best to combat racism and marginalise it in our society.
Princess Diana: icon? | The Community
Princess Diana died on the evening before I moved away to begin university studies. I once would have said that I loved Diana. One of my earliest memories is of watching her wedding with my mother and grandmother at 4 in the morning when I was three years old. Throughout my childhood, I pored over the glossy magazine pictures of her. I dreamt about meeting her. I hungered for details about her life and spoke adoring words about her. I kept a sleepless, tear-filled vigil on the night of her death.
