Got this note from a friend and fan of BB&W… “What do you think of it when white guys pursue Black women but don’t have ANY BLACK OR BROWN FRIENDS? OR ASSOCIATE WITH PEOPLE OF COLOR? (FB pictures, IG accounts, in public, etc). Is that a fetish alert? What does that mean?” What does itRead More…
Just one more day. Better get your popcorn ready.
What exactly should a First Lady look like? According to a VA voter, not Michelle Obama. By Jenn M. Jackson
Miss Alice always says that each generation should do better. So in a way, I’m honoring my mother by taking care of myself.
African Americans have billions in spending power. But how many of us have REAL wealth?
My Atlanta trip was probably one of the BEST, no…it was THE BEST trip on the SWIRLING book tour thus far. I got to go to the CNN center NOT as a tourist, but as a guest with a tag and everything! The interview with Natasha Curry was awesome sauce, and she’s so unbelievably down to earth. Turns out Natasha is a product of an interracial union (dad black, mom white) and is married to a white rainbeau, which explains her enthusiasm for all things Swirling.
Just have to brag, because Maxi Me is sooooo gorgeous. Thank the lawd for new acne-fighting technology, because she looks 10x better than I did at that age. She went stag, because, well, she’s 14. I’m sure we’ll be cleaning the guns in front of her perspective dates soon enough, though.
NONE of us should be surprised.
The interracial marriage in this show is just “meh” for me compared to the overall storyline.
Michael Fassbender and Steve McQueen make quite the couple.

Tomorrow is Monday. You should probably read this now.
Everyone already knew that things were bad for black men–the high unemployment rates, the low high school graduation rates, etc., but it turns out things are probably even worse than you thought. Becky Pettit, a professor of sociology at the University of Washington, has written a new book, titled Invisible Men: Mass Incarceration and the Myth of Black Progress, which lifts the veil on the myth of black progress.
Our resident sex and romance expert is at it again!
Yesterday was awesome-sauce. Atlanta was a success all around, and “SWIRLING” to CNN by storm. It was cool that host, Natasha Curry, a product of the black/white union with a white rainbeau of her own, was so geeked up about the book. She’s so super cute and down to earth–we’re looking at pictures of my kiddos in that shot.
It’s easy to get on a roll and then find that you have gone too far in the wrong direction. It’s even possible to go too far in the right direction. For example, I’ve read plenty of posts on a multitude of blogs teaching/telling/preaching to black women to learn how to use their femininity and/or look more feminine. And the people who write these posts have a point: Plenty of women–white, black, and everything else–are interested in increasing their appeal to men and learning how to practice the feminine arts.
I decided to do the question of the week on location at the Georgian Terrace Hotel in Atlanta. Amber Nicole Smiley, an actress and resident, spoke with me frankly about some black women’s resistance to loose weight to score higher in the dating game.
Frequent Fox News contributor and far right political pundit Ann Coulter is promoting a new book, thus we can all expect to get served double doses of extra-hot foolishness–otherwise known as “Quotes from Ann”–over the next few weeks as Ms. Coulter makes her rounds of the media.
In case you were wondering what I’ve been up to…
