Dutch Film “Only Decent People” Features An Interracial…

Robert Vuijsje, a Dutch journalist and writer, published his first novel Alleen maar nette mensen, or Only Decent People in 2008. The gist of Alleen maar nette mensen is that a young white man from the upper class of Dutch society becomes infatuated with the prototypical model of black beauty–dark skin, voluptuous lips, and a protuberant backside–and goes in search of a black woman who has such a physical form.

Emergency Post for the BB&W Crew: Reader Wants to Go Natural,…

This is by far the most bizarre post I’ve received so far, but with reports from war-torn Blackistan coming out daily, I can’t say I’m surprised. I also have to admit that I have absolutely NO IDEA how to help this poor girl, but the least that I can do is post it to see if any of you have anything to lend. The writer understands this story is fantastic, so she agreed to post a photo of herself along with the email to prove she’s real.

So…here it is.

Etiquette 101: Graciousness in Competition (and life), Part 2…

This post is in response to the overwhelming feedback to my previous post in regards to graciousness in competition. The objective was not to project anyone in a negative light but to shed light on the importance of knowing how to deal with people graciously in competition and uncomfortable situations. The responses that followed expressed a myriad of personal thoughts and feelings on the matter but with the exception of a few, the majority of commenters various responses focused on three areas (as one commenter pointed out) and I find that if we defend these stances they will do us more harm than good.
