The women in Sean Paul’s video I’m Still In Love (2002)
“The Tories drank wine whilst your nan died alone”
Seen in Brighton, UK.
This graffiti refers to the recently revelations that Tory politicians and staffers were holding private parties & drinking wine during the strictest lockdown period in UK in 2020, at a time when all private gatherings were officially banned, and the death rate for the elderly was extremely high, due to government malice and ineptitude.

If you have a job that requires a lot of web searching, or if you’d like an alternative to Google, consider Ecosia. It runs on Bing source code so the results are decent, and they use the profits from the searches to plant trees 🌳! ~45 searches = one 🌳 planted.
About 3.5 billion searches are done daily with Google. If 1% of those searches were done with Ecosia, that’s 35 million searches a day, or over 200 million trees planted within a year.
The amount of searches I do while working and outside of work will lead to over 80 trees planted in a year. It’s amazing the impact an individual can make! 😊
Tracy Chapman and Alice Walker were in a relationship when they both lived in Brooklyn in the mid 1990s.
Walker discussed the relationship with an interviewer in The Guardian in 2006:
“"Why was it kept so quiet at the time? "It was quiet to you maybe but that’s because you didn’t live in our area,” she answers with a throaty laugh. She has written about the relationship in her journals, which she plans to publish one day.
So why did they decide against using their relationship to make a big social impact like other celebrity lesbian couples, such as Ellen DeGeneres and Anne Heche, have in the past? The idea seems to amuse her. “I would never do that. My life is not to be somebody else’s impact - you know what I mean? And it was delicious and lovely and wonderful and I totally enjoyed it and I was completely in love with her but it was not anybody’s business but ours.”“
