White Man Who Says He’s ‘Born Again African’ Won A Grant Meant For ‘People Of Colour’

November 8, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: main, Story |

Anthony Ekundayo Lennon, born Anthony David Lennon was one of four people who won a paid traineeship as a “theatre practitioner of colour” last year.

The two-year opportunity was funded by a £406,500 grant from Arts Council England to “deliver a comprehensive programme of talent development for future BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic) leaders”.

However, the Sunday Times uncovered a copy of a book written by Lennon in 1990 in which he recalled receiving jibes in the street from people who thought he was mixed race despite his 100% white Irish heritage.

The actor describes himself as a “born-again African” and stated in 2012 that “although I’m white, with white parents, I have gone through the struggles of a black man, a black actor”.

The Daily Man-Up: #1 Mistake People Make When Building A Habit

October 24, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: main |

So as the title implies, No.1 mistake people do when they start building a habit is relying too much on willpower. They believe that building a healthy habit like daily exercising, is only possible if you go hard and you push yourself everyday to show up and be disciplined.

While this plan might work for people who have trained and grown their willpower muscle to above average size (think: really fit and healthy people, who just keep on getting healthier), it won’t work for majority of us, because of a single reason that willpower is finite resource and if we ask more than it can handle – we’ll quit.

So here are my 6 thoughts on Willpower. Most of it is research based, and if you wish, I could find the sources of the studies made.

The Daily Man-Up: Before You Do Anything, Write Down Your Damn Goals!

September 27, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: main |

(photo: @seteales)

So you think you want to go somewhere in life? You truly believe that you are capable of something more than mediocrity? Well, have you written down your goals? Do you know exactly what it is that you want? Do you really know? If you do, how do you know? Why is it that this is what you want and not something else?

You will wander aimlessly through life unless you clearly define what you want, why you want it, and how you will get it. Do you want that muscular body that drives the women crazy? Then you must eat the right foods. Do the lifts. And, above all, make it a priority. Do you want your dream career to lead a stable life doing what you love? Then you must go to class. Do your homework. Spend the hours studying. Sacrifice partying and friends.

A Guide to Using Nonbinary, Gender-Neutral Pronouns

September 25, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: main |

A gender neutral or gender inclusive pronoun is a pronoun which does not associate a gender with the individual who is being discussed.

Some languages, such as English, do not have a gender neutral or third gender pronoun available, and this has been criticized, since in many instances, writers, speakers, etc. use “he/his” when referring to a generic individual in the third person. Also, the dichotomy of “he and she” in English does not leave room for other gender identities, which is a source of frustration to the transgender and gender queer communities.

People who are limited by languages which do not include gender neutral pronouns have attempted to create them, in the interest of greater equality.
