#BlackLivesMatter

Everyone has a responsibility and right to question discriminatory acts against others and themselves, not just because it is morally and socially wrong, but because we owe a future to the next generation - not a dehumanised existence as a label, driven by race, socioeconomic status, class and demographic.

Change needs to happen now, we cannot wait to be guided. To stand a chance of creating a world void of labels, a world where my children and the children of others can have the same opportunities without prejudice, each and every one of us has to take a stand with a plain and simple 'NO!' to discrimination, in whatever form it takes.

I have been a prisoner at her majesty’s pleasure; but I am an academic, I am still worthy, I am still credible, I am still human and I thank God I’m still breathing.
