Take a look at this video, and the “man” harassing this woman, and the reason he is harassing her. The heckler must have grown up listening to gangster rap. I’m only half kidding. Kudos to the well-dressed and classy black men who tried to intervene. You can only shake your head at how truly patheticRead More…
Some women have “it” and some just don’t. By “it” I mean the motivation, willpower, and means to become women who everyone admires, emulates, and reveres as “the best when compared to the rest”. These are the women who respectable, successful, and admiration-worthy people of all races hold up as examples of the type of woman or Black woman they wish all Black women could be. Let’s call her “Kerry Gabrielle Michelle”.
In such a marriage and family-oriented society, I don’t see any kind of accommodations for singles happening anytime soon and black women are still marrying at the lowest rate among all groups (with the legal right) in America. Do you think it’s true that marrieds have it better than singles or is this just another case of the grass looking greener on the other side?
Mahala Lynch Davis, married her former slave owner Isaac P. Davis in 1857. On the right is their daughter Martha Davis Wilson (b. 1848) holding her baby Julia Wilson (Car). Davis freed Mahala and then married her moving from his former Virginia plantation to Chilicothe, southern Ohio.
Question: What are some other ways to differentiate between someone who is “damaged beyond repair” and a “work in progress”?
“Admitting this openly is something that I wouldn’t normally do, but I guess I felt it had to be said openly to someone in the hopes of preventing or reducing the number of functional DBR women produced in the black community. Even though I’m only sharing my story, I’m sure there are many more instances of black women who share the same background as me.”

Small, intimate gatherings give an excellent opportunity for the single men to observe your domestic skills in entertaining and interacting as a hostess (don’t worry, no one is trying to push you back to the 50’s) If you can’t cook, don’t worry,you can always cheat!
Culture has dictated for over 400 years that black women are property, of low grade and value, and are more male than female. That mindset, although it may take another 400 years, must change and that starts with you and me.
Blasian love in the 19th Century…
They marry, divorce, and get remarried faster than a jackrabbit getting a quicky behind the bushes. Why?
The Wayne County NOW Board of Directors named Detroit Prosecutor Kym Worthy one of the 2012 Feminists of the Year, and the board bestowed upon her the Susan B. Anthony Award.
Bet you didn’t know I could be so creative with a white t-shirt, huh?
She is law school, and is seeing many of her white schoolmates dating, mating and beyond. But there’s only slim pickings for her.
This just in: Winter is here for another 5 weeks but that’s ok. Even though we find ourselves in the grips of one of the coldest winters on record doesn’t mean our wardrobe has to be, ermmm, frozen stiff…
Twentysomethings are more confused than ever, and their confusion is partly due to receiving well-intentioned, but ill-informed and inaccurate, advice. Twentysomethings are also confused because they fail to realized just how important their twenties actually are.
Last week, President Obama performed one of his annual duties by delivering his State of the Union Address before a joint session of Congress. Democrats and Republicans, Senators and Representatives, and even common voters alike looked on as he touted some of his major accomplishments from his first term. But, after seeing so many of these in the past resulting in little action from Congress, particularly those from President Obama, one must wonder, is the State of Union Address just a formality now or is it worth all the attention it receives?
It’s a big feat, and I’m hoping with all my might that my friend, Lenny McAllister will win the congressional seat that has opened since Jesse Jackson Jr. stepped down and his shenanigans have been exposed. With all the ills going on in Chicago, don’t you guys think it’s time for someone with some sort of moral compass to step up? Me too.
It isn’t enough to pretend that your being with one guy is enough to save your life and your womb. Because it’s not. Get tested often, and always use protection. Monogamy isn’t a condom.
I’m not crazy and it wasn’t a hopeful presumption on my part or a case of mistaken identity.
Puffy was running back up the block towards me; he grabbed me in a hug and twirled me in the air when we reached each other…
