Television is STILL Not Ready to Make Black Women ‘The Main…

If you’ve been around for a while, you might know that I watch soap operas. Not just casually either–my DVR is set to Bold and the Beautiful. It’s a thoroughly horrible show, but of recycled story lines and romantic pairing that lasts about three episodes. So I wasn’t holding out much hope that a love affair […]

What Pictures Say About You That You Might Not Like……

I am an amateur photographer, and I’m told I take a pretty good photo. The most important thing I’ve learned about the art is that each photo tells a story. It can inspire a feeling, remind you of something, spark a latent memory. But guess what? Bad photos in smeared bathroom mirrors, cluttered closets and […]

Like What I’m Wearing? Get It for $5 on Hautelook Before…

I’ve been getting a lot of people on my Facebook page, raving about the lip color I’m sporting in this photo.   I’ve got news. What you’re seeing in not a lipstick, lip gloss or lip stain.

As Much as I Love Christian Bale, I WON’T Be Watching…

…And neither should you. Hollywood has a looooong history of white-washing biblical stories that originated on or around the continent of Africa, so much so that Egyptian history is part of the Western History curriculum. There are some people who have no idea that Egypt is in AFRICA, and the average citizen looks like this… […]

Asian Men…I’m Getting To a Certain Point Where I’m…

There’s no doubt that people of color are constantly jockeying for the spot as model minority status in this country, but no such group strives as such more than Asian people. I have a tremendous amount of respect for their discipline, self-sacrifice, and unity. But it’s that unity that I believe can be a major stumbling […]

Gifts for the Nerd In Your Life……

Men may be simple creatures, but they’re sometimes the hardest to buy for. And depending on your guy’s disposition, the old standby shirt and tie might lead to grounds for relationship counseling.
