Another week has passed and there has once again been a LOT going on and this time i have the most varied round-up from the few weeks i have been running the Friday FANatic so far. I hope you enjoy and would love to hear of anything you feel i might have missed from this list:

MOST LIKELY TO BE AGREED ON:

i took the race/reconciliation conversations on my blog a few steps back to try and find a starting place that most people would be able to acknowledge: Just Say, “It’s Not Okay!”

MOST VULNERABLE:

My friend from Oakland, Amanda Kuehn, shares a glimpse into her current story of Singleness for the Taboo Topics section on my blog.

MOST DREAD-FILLED:

i had a fun encounter concerning my dreads, with a woman at a local car park the other day.

MOST RISKY AND POTENTIALLY HELPFUL:

The invitation to wear another person’s shoes and argue a point based on their point of view, has so far led to some interesting and frustrating response:

Can you Wear The Other’s Shoes?

MOST SILLY AND LIGHT FUN:

Guy randomly narrates peoples lives in various public places and their reactions are great:

 

MOST UNSETTLING:

Lawrence Otis Graham speaks about the need he feels to dress his boys a certain way so that they will be safer from the police in Americaland:

MOST BRAVE FOR LETTING ME WRITE FOR THEM:

New friend, Trevor Swart, invited for me to guest post on his ‘Swart Donkey’ blog on the topic of learning:

Learning and Relearning: Steps to a United Future

COMPETITION FOR MOST AWKWARD:

Was it this guy [Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Jonathan Bernier] who played sport for an event honouring Nelson Mandela while clearly confused about who this “great sportsman on and off the field” actually was?

Or these guys who were caught harrassing women on the street when their moms volunteered to get involved:

FROM THE TWITTERER:

Hashtag Game suggestions i’ve submitted:

The Sound of Instruments being tuned.

Ho, Ho, Ho, Ho, Socks?

Drill Bill

The Virginia Woolf of Wall Street

Look Whose Tolkien

Arthur Conan Doyle the Barbarian
