When is it ok to be black or a minority? If you read my blogs you will know I like to discuss topics that most people don’t like to discuss because it may make them uncomfortable! So is this a reason we should not highlight or discuss subjects that make us uncomfortable or angry? Why is it when a black person or another person from a minority highlights blatant racism we are shouted down or told to shut up and stop complaining. I had a discussion recently explaining to someone about the blatant racism I have faced nearly all of my life. I was quickly met by, well I have encountered racism from black and minority people. Its almost like it becomes a competition as to who has received to most racism. That really angered me, to be honest as I know for a fact that person has not and will never ever receive the type of racism I have endured. So, I left the conversation there and decided not to pursue it as this has become a tactic to silence people and to stop them from highlighting it. The type of racism I have received as a child to what I receive to this day is completely different. As a child in secondary school you would get called a n***ger to your face or if you left the class room you would get a swastika drawn on your books. If you used a particular toilet in the school swastika’s and n***er would start to appear all over the…
So, the questions fathers get asked allot is why do we spend so much time in court? Unfortunately, if you have had a divorce or a breakup even though as a father we have equal parental rights. The courts and the system do not agree with it and the only way a father can seem to see his kids is if he takes his ex-partner to court. We have to pay all the fees, including the maintenance for our children even when they are deliberately being withheld from the father.
As a father being there for your child, being on the birth certificate and everything else we do for our children means nothing in the eyes of the law. Women to this day are still allowed to disappear with your child and use your child as a weapon with no consequences for there actions. Is this fair, of course, it is not but until the law sees this and fathers start fighting back nothing will ever change.
Women are breaking human rights laws by doing this but as no one has challenged it in court nothing has even been done about it. There is a piece of legislation that every human being is protected by in the UK, I would like to say worldwide but it would probably be a lie. It is Article 8 of the Human Rights Act 1998. Under Article 8 protects your right to respect for private and family life, your home and correspondence.
Based on the Article 8, why are so many women breaching this daily and hiding behind government agencies who are assisting in these breaches? It’s because no one has challenged it, most fathers are so tired and stressed they don’t have the fight in them to fight in court. Maybe other man just settle for the fact they will never see their children again and just walk away.
I will never walk away from my children and I don’t think you should either, united we are a lot stronger and divided we will fall. So, don’t settle for anything less than your child and you being in their lives no one can or should take away that basic human right of yours.
Fathers should be allowed to enjoy their kids like the mothers do and not spend his life in court fighting for his basic rights.
