Fill your life with women that empower you, that help you believe in your magic and aid them to believe in their own exceptional power and their incredible magic too. Women that believe in each other can survive anything. Women who believe in each other create armies that will win kingdoms and wars. Nikita Gill

Living in South Africa, one can’t help but notice how everything is broken down and viewed in terms of colour, even things that have no such connection. This is the land of apartheid, I THINK WE ALL KNOW but must it all come down to whether you are White, Coloured, Black or Asian? What’s this all about? On radio, all you hear talk of is racist this, racist the other and its not very comfortable.
In Kenya, we are a mixed race society and while on the one hand we don’t really mix, look at us, we are happy and somewhat peaceful.
Some University kids didn’t want to have a mixed race hostel and so they went ahead and filmed a mean and derogatory video depicting a mock integration ceremony with the schools (Black) support staff. In this day and age, 14 years into the Democracy and Rainbow Nation, why are we still discussing this? Somebody help me here because coming from Kenya, I don’t understand this kind of discrimination.
