reke gwire!

as a fan of social medium one-liners; derivatives and condescending alike, i have caught flak with the fray of the phrase ‘check your privilege’.  this is because i am wont to introspect than your average troll. the aforementioned has been a monkey swinging from tree to tree at the backyard of my mind. 

see, first, i’m lost as to what it is meant to denote. therefore, by virtue of this space, i’d like to take liberties in interpretation. my current ‘privilege’ is i’m leaned back in a 62-seater paradiso bus which offers almost half the cost to my destination. as the traffic monster lurks relentlessly, i am quick to fish out one of my ubiquitously branded scribble-book and beloved ink gel pen to scraggly lay the monkeys on paper; oblivious of the stray stares beside me and below; if only to alleviate the circumstance.

given, a privilege is which is granted unto us by virtue of who we are, are from or associated with and on the larger scale, not necessarily available to others in similar proportions. therefore, i believe the mission of the moniker is to check excesses in relation to the ‘less privileged’.

as i’m an affable individual *cough* decent by an standard *cough* reasonable by all means *cough cough* historically fair and perennially noble, i take this onus to present my take as follows. 

that behind glut of online checks and balances, whether fueled by hurt, hate or passion may not be as wholly invested as to warrant a step off the pedestal of a privilege, for validation in books that are cannot be accounted for. laudable as it could be, the rationalization cocktail ought to be laid out in fora, without emotions and torn into without feelings. 

all trolls considered and filtered, only then would it be reasonable to edit my systems and mount a wreck-ball like cyrus, consequently plummeting my unchecked privileges. 

HA. HA. *clap*.

*After being called cassius clay at the weigh ins.*

"My name is Muhammad Ali and you will announce it right there in the center of that ring after the fight, if you don’t do it now. I will punish you!"

Ali bloodied Terrell and almost knocked him out in the eighth round, Ali taunted Terrell throughout the match hitting him with sharp jabs and shouting between punches,What’s my name?” ”What’s my name?” “Say It!” Terrell couldn’t defend himself anymore. All he could do was put his gloves up to his face, both eyes were cut, his left eye was completely closed by the end of the eighth round. The right eye was closing. But The fight still lasted 15 rounds.You know why it lasted 15 rounds? That’s how long  Ali wanted it to last. He wanted to punish terrell. He wanted to tell the world what his name was.

In the 12th round Terrell finally said Muhammad Ali.

If you thought this is a cow, you’re wrong. Meet the Dzo or Yakow - a cross between a yak and a cow. As to why it’s looking at me weird, I have no idea.

Tusker ..Baridi,

the most popular beer in Kenya

Tusker was first brewed on 15 December 1922. George Hurst, the company’s founder, was killed in an elephant hunting accident and in his memory, his brother Charles decided to name the first beer brewed “Tusker”
