The Damage a White-Centric Education Has on Young People of Color

With it being Black History Month in the UK, it’s that time of year when schools pretend to care about black history for a week before returning to their ethnocentric education. It’s that ironic month where pupils sit in school assemblies where they watch videos about how a lack of representation in school subjects can affect pupils of color before going to their history lessons where they’ll learn about the Tudor period for the fifth time in their

The NFL Is Signing Criminals, But Kaepernick Is Still a Free Agent

We’re coming up on the third week in the NFL regular season and there are more examples of corruption facing the league than ever. During Monday Night Football on Sep. 17, the Chicago Bears faced the Seattle Seahawk. Although the Bears came out on top with a 24-17 victory, that wasn’t what caught the attention of most fans. The spotlight was on linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who was starting on the Seahawks defense. The same man

A Hope For Pakistan: Prime Minister Khan Addresses Nation

On the 17th of August 2018, Imran Khan was sworn in as the Prime Minister of Pakistan. Last night, Imran Khan addressed the nation as the Prime Minister of Pakistan for the first time, passing an hour-long across-the-board, televisual speech. To the rear of a recitation from the Holy Quran and the playing of the national anthem, the Prime Minister inaugurated his address by thanking his supporters who stood beside him throughout his 22 years

Nawaz Sharif: The Rise and Fall of the Crown

Mian Nawaz Sharif inaugurated his political livelihood back in the course of a period where many industries, including the Sharif’s steel business, were taken into the public sector by Pakistan’s then-Prime Minister, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. His father, Mian Muhammad Sharif, was an entrepreneur who had next to no interest in politics, but when his factories were municipalised by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, he moulded up a hostility against him. In some way, General Jillani convinced him

Muslims Are Being Forced Into Concentration Camps in China

From the spring of last year, the authorities of China in Uyghur and Kazakh have amassed what could conceivably be a million Muslims, including even some foreign civilians, in massive detainment and “re-education” concentration camps, where they are to be seized and “constructed” into prototypical Chinese citizens. The detention campaign is known to be a trademark of China’s government safekeeping gear, bolstered by the greatly xenophobic, hard-hitting regulation of President Xi Jinping. Hailed from a partway

The Truth About Discrimination in the College Admissions Process

In 2015, 64 Asian-American groups filed a complaint against Harvard University for what they claimed to be discrimination in the college admissions process. Some may argue that the groups are simply creating a rationale for getting rejected from the institution, but the numbers don’t lie. Many of the enraged previous Asian-American applicants sported nearly perfect SAT scores, played multiple instruments, were named captains of their sports teams and participated in numerous extracurricular activities. With such a resume, one

The 2018 Women’s March: Revolution Doesn’t Give Up

Another year, another milestone for women. The Trump Administration’s first year in office brought scandal, investigation, outrage, one legislative win and ended in a government shutdown. Today, over 300 rallies in every U.S. state show that the resistance has never forgotten what they stood for. Oddly enough, the President himself decided to tweet this support for the protests today, confusing some about the true intentions of the march. Beautiful weather all over our great country,
