Fair Enough

 

“FAIR ENOUGH” IS A PHRASE COMMONLY USED AROUND LONDON. WHY FAIR ENOUGH? WHY NOT BROWN ENOUGH OR ANY OTHER SKIN TONE ENOUGH? 

AND HOW MUCH FAIR IS FAIR ENOUGH???

THEN …AS BACK IN MY COUNTRY WHAT REALLY SETS MY HACKLES UP IS  ..NOT BEING FAIR ENOUGH!!

This performance is an attempt to question the use of the word “fair” in the phrase “fair enough”, which is commonly used in England. I hope this work made the viewer ponder and question, as to why good (enough) equalize (colour) fair?

 

Coming from a country where a majority covet a fairer skin tone, the irony is not lost on me. Taking it a step further, have tried to play and question, around-how fair is fair enough, how much fairer one needs to be fair enough, or should I say good enough?
