How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
It’s been suggested that we release “marriage” from government, give it entirely & symbolically over to religious institutions, and use civil unions under law for all couples gay and straight. I would love to live in that world. Perfectly logical. Hell to implement.”Marriage” is an understood concept universally, even by it’s strongest critics. With thousands of years of history predating all the major religions and implemented planet-wide (with varying standards), what it means doesn’t have to be explained, and expectations in law and society are quite stable. Full faith and credit amongst the states, and almost perfect cross-border recognition between countries.
I have observed behaviors in black women, self included, that made me think of the Kübler-Ross model or “Five Stages of Grief”. Many black women have been forced to confront the utter hatred and contempt that black people have for black women. When they see this hatred and the related dysfunction called out, they will respond differently based on whatever “stage” they go to when faced with such an unpleasant situation.
Is Israel practicing the same type of racist eugenics done against them during Germany’s Nazi regime?
Speaking of shaming…
I used the term ‘equally yoked’ for no other reason then the fact that I can’t fucking stand the damn phrase. When I hear anyone say it, and I recall hearing both Black Christian males and females and a Muslim Black man utilize the metaphor it always strikes me as ironic.
Innate social messaging systems tell Black women that they have to overcome, challenge, beat, and win every single thing they do. And, the Superwoman Complex is a leading indicator of stressful lifestyles for Black women. Do you cope with this or mask it?
Celebrating the myth of the Strong Black Woman has mistakenly become an aspiration and an inspiration to those in certain demographics of the Black Community. When things are down and out and a black woman is tired, or fed the fuck up, someone, somewhere will remind her that this disgusting and frustrating existence is merely a test of her ability to survive when life is clearly giving her signals that she should make changes.
Ah, the joys of interracial love. You, he and your beautiful little…Gasp!…Mamzers, today known as biracials. Or are they?
Less than a month out from the presidential election, both President Obama and Mitt Romney have done countless interviews. They’ve debated. They’ve given many speeches. And yet, says Kendal Sheets, Mitt Romney has never really addressed one very important issue: his Mormon faith and how it would influence a Romney presidency.
Are you a dark-skinned woman feeling ugly and unfeminine? Well the Abrahamic God thought you worthy to be a woman front and center in the Bible.
With all this talk of swirling, I often wonder how some of our Christian BWE ladies approach the IR debate in their Christian circles. After all, the Bible has some pretty interesting things to say about the topic…
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. What Mitt Romney and Co. have actually succeeding in doing is offending millions of people via a series of comments that one writer for the Telegraph has famously described as “utterly devoid of charm and mildly offensive”
Ever get cult recruited?
Oh, the lengths humans will go to in order to separate ourselves from one another…
Isn’t it ironic that a people who has a history of suffering and being displaced wouldn’t want to provide sanctuary to other victims?
Question: Have you observed persons encouraging a sense of spiritual naivety in black girls rather than preparing them for real issues? How do you feel “faith” is used to disarm black women and girls?
Black people spank their kids the most, but how’s that working for us?
