How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
Anta Majigeen Ndiaye or Anna Madgigine Jai Kingsley was not always the free Senegalese woman who eventually became a plantation and slave owner. At 18 years old, her owner Zephaniah Kingsley, one of the most powerful men in Florida freed the 18 year-old woman mother of his 3 children and married her. As Florida was under Spanish colonial rule where manumission laws were more liberal than American. Her husband saw slavery as a temporary condition related to economics more than race. Anna learned to operate the plantations as effective as Zephaniah.
The White House and Congress are at yet another stand-off about policy and, with a looming “sequestration” deadline this week, sweeping cuts could be devastating for the American economy. Interested now?
In the March edition of Numéro, a prominent international fashion magazine, white 16-year-old model, Ondria Hardin, poses in full-on, full-bodied bronzed hue. The editorial spread was called, of all things, “African Queen.” Now, I have heard of fashion icons and imagery being a bit “avant-garde” but my goodness this is some mess.
The Onion is stinking to high heaven on this one…
Eletha Finch was so gracious and humble accepting her late husband, Peter Finch’s Oscar. It is logical that the widow of an actor should accept any award in honor of her husband (or vice versa). But in 1977, race definitely was a factor in Eletha NOT being asked to accept the award on her husband’s behalf.
Mahala Lynch Davis, married her former slave owner Isaac P. Davis in 1857. On the right is their daughter Martha Davis Wilson (b. 1848) holding her baby Julia Wilson (Car). Davis freed Mahala and then married her moving from his former Virginia plantation to Chilicothe, southern Ohio.

The Wayne County NOW Board of Directors named Detroit Prosecutor Kym Worthy one of the 2012 Feminists of the Year, and the board bestowed upon her the Susan B. Anthony Award.
Twentysomethings are more confused than ever, and their confusion is partly due to receiving well-intentioned, but ill-informed and inaccurate, advice. Twentysomethings are also confused because they fail to realized just how important their twenties actually are.
Last week, President Obama performed one of his annual duties by delivering his State of the Union Address before a joint session of Congress. Democrats and Republicans, Senators and Representatives, and even common voters alike looked on as he touted some of his major accomplishments from his first term. But, after seeing so many of these in the past resulting in little action from Congress, particularly those from President Obama, one must wonder, is the State of Union Address just a formality now or is it worth all the attention it receives?
It’s a big feat, and I’m hoping with all my might that my friend, Lenny McAllister will win the congressional seat that has opened since Jesse Jackson Jr. stepped down and his shenanigans have been exposed. With all the ills going on in Chicago, don’t you guys think it’s time for someone with some sort of moral compass to step up? Me too.
It isn’t enough to pretend that your being with one guy is enough to save your life and your womb. Because it’s not. Get tested often, and always use protection. Monogamy isn’t a condom.
I’m not crazy and it wasn’t a hopeful presumption on my part or a case of mistaken identity.
Puffy was running back up the block towards me; he grabbed me in a hug and twirled me in the air when we reached each other…
Amazing–Jesse Jackson says NOTHING about these rappers degrading black girls and women. But when “Lil Rat” insults a Civil Rights icon, he flexes his muscles. If there has EVER been a doubt about who is MORE important in “the struggle” set your minds at ease. If the answer isn’t clear by now, you just may not want to face reality.
Does that name sound vaguely familiar? Well, if you reside in Southern California, you probably know his name all too well. The 33-year-old SoCal resident allegedly went on a killing spree beginning two weeks ago on Super Bowl Sunday. He is reported to have killed two Irvine residents, one Riverside police man and another officer just yesterday in the Big Bear Lake area. All the while, he evaded capture by setting his own car ablaze and escaping to remote locations on foot. Sound fake? It’s not.
