How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
Elizabeth Warren, Chairperson of the Congressional Oversight panel and challenger to incumbent Scott Brown for the Massachusetts United States Senate seat, became a youtube superstar when a video of her speaking last year went viral. Warren was the originator of the ‘you didn’t build that’ phrase that President Barack Obama has been taking heat for as of late.

Can black women ever win when it comes to expressing their emotions?
When it becomes too boring for a comic to bring it up, that’s progress.
Black Americans have experienced an arduous journey to gain all of their civil rights in the United States. People of African descent have been indentured servants, slaves, three-fifths of a person, second-class citizens, and finally, with the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, people of color were given all of the same rights and responsibilities as white Americans–at least on paper.
Come hell or high water, Chick-fil-a takes a stance.
Mitt Romney is currently on the tail end of his three-nation overseas trip which was ostensibly designed to convince U.S. voters that he is ready to engage in some heavy-duty political wheeling and dealing if he were to become President of the United States.

“While the overall results of the survey are interesting to read, it seems that African American sexual behavior has been singled out for the lions share of media attention. And I think I know why.”
Science has proved it: Some black women are using fat as a shield.
Between avoiding discussion about his tax return and failing to adequately explain how his policies will benefit poor people, Romney has allowed himself to be painted into a corner.
I’ve come to the conclusion that perhaps the only way to help lower income women is to help lower income men.
