Don’t You Just Love it When Racists Slip? Fox News Guest, Bob…

Someone sent me this link and I thought it was a joke. I mean, in this day and age, when interracial and intercultural relationships are at the highest approval of all time, some dusty old racist comes out to talk about how, “In his day, you didn’t see the mixing of the races.” It’s almost […]

Reader Weighs In: Wife vs. ‘Wifey’…

I got this letter from a reader the other day, and it was so impactful, I had to cut and paste just as is! It also goes along with my video commentary about an exchange I saw between a man and a women discussing their irresponsible sex practices that led to an unwanted pregnancy. Check […]

Video: Chris and Wes On How to Inspire Attraction with the Opposite…

Some people think attraction with the opposite sex is either “there” or it isn’t. Not necessarily. Sometimes emotions like shyness and nervousness overwhelm us to the point that, even if we are attracted, we don’t show it. Wes Murphy and I did a demonstration on how to build attraction, and the chemistry we build is […]

Successful ‘Mompreneur': The Mastermind Behind Camille Rose…

Today is wash day for me. I have my staples, the things that are tried and true blue. Several Camille Rose Naturals products have joined the rotation because the results are undeniable. Big, fluffy, soft curls… Just about every item I’ve tried I like–especially the products in jars, because those tend to be heavier and […]

Leona’s Love Quest: Is There Love in the Cards?…

Those of you who have been following my Love Quest for a long time already know I am a bit of a mystic. I’m really fascinated by astrology and I often find that personality assessments created from a full birth chart to be both specific and accurate (feel free to insert your disbelieving eye-rolling here.)

Civil Rights: Can We Focus Less on Marching and ‘The…

I have seen trailers for upcoming movies to be released in the next few months. I see superheroes, sci-fi, fantasy, fairy tales, feel-good biographies and we are marching for civil rights… AGAIN. Do not misunderstand my words. With all due respect, I have deep appreciation for my mother’s generation. They marched, they sat at the […]

AM/BW: “Never Settle for Secrecy”…

By Mamie Mooney I’m a huge fan of interracial dating. I just want to say that before I continue. It is my belief that people are made to love and be loved; and to grow, and be fulfilled in that love, regardless of color. All of the statistics that describe and prove us to be […]

Utterly Speechless…Is Kim Kardashian Wearing Blackface?!…

First, it was our vocal talent. Second, they took our lips. Then, it was our asses. Now, it’s our color. I guess everyone is better at being a black woman than an actual BLACK WOMAN. I’m in utter shock right now. The other side will perhaps argue that this is “bronzer.” Really? Is that what […]

Special Guest: Interracial Dating and Colorism…

The affect of colorism in Black America continues to be a topic of contention. While many of us are dating and marrying interracially, the wounds from feeling rejected based on hue are still raw with many of us. Such an occurrence played out this week on our Facebook fan page, when I posted a video […]

About four hours ago, the exchange below took place during our current discussion on the film “Light Girls”. I wish to thank Neecy for asking some insightful – and quite possibly for some, uncomfortable – questions that I feel deserve further exploration. I have crested this side bar to the main article so that readers […]

Crazy Snow Day in Southern California!…

We’ve lived in Temecula for seven years, and while I’d heard some rumors about crazy, freak snow storms, I thought maybe there were a few flakes and a dusting. Nothing like what I woke up to this morning. It basically snowed from about 1AM to 8AM, and of course the kids were delighted… By the […]

Young, Beautiful, Sexy, Talented, Accomplished and Single? Not For…

Both Fawn Stone and Lakesha Yvette Walker were featured as singles on Interracial Marriage and Family, formerly Swirling and Marriage.  I have not been single for quite some time but as a dating and life coach understand that it is quite hard out there for women everywhere to find love.  Throw in beautiful, successful and […]

Yes You Can Grow Life-Sustaining Greens in the Dead of Winter!…

Right now, Temecula is under a freeze advisory, which is pretty unusual for Southern California. I’m mildly concerned about my fall garden, because there’s a few crops that are sensitive to frost. But what I won’t be worried about are the sprouts that I’m growing indoors. For the impatient gardener, growing sprouts can give you […]

Glad to See More Non-Black Men Seeing Through the Lies About Black…

The people who make careers of trashing black women in social media might not have counted on something: Critically thinking men of all races might investigate these claims to either confirm or dismiss them. You also can’t count out the increasing numbers of non-black men who are dating and marrying black women disproving all the […]
