Brenda Brody: PRIDE…

“Stop worrying about what somebody else says or wants or does. Be positive. Have you ever seen the way David Bowie looks at Iman? And have you read the love letter Roger Ebert wrote to his beloved Chaz? There are men out there that will love us just like that. Don’t even think about the ones that don’t.”

100% Positive: “I Love Black Women Because…”…

We must be on the verge of something great, because the trolls are in full force, sending out their roaches to attacked absolutely everything about black women–from the coils of their, curve of their hips, shape of their lips and wideness of their nose. Nobody wants us. The rainbeaus who love us are “simps.” We’re all “middle-aged,” fat, desperate and eat our young. Did I miss something from the list? Meh. Whatever. Since these sorrowful knuckle dragers are CONVINCED that black women are the most hated, most reviled, most unloved women who should just go die in a corner, I thought I’d give ya’ll an opportunity to disabuse these miserable lots of these notions. All are welcome–ladies, men, children, mothers, fathers, black, white and polka dot. Tell us what RIGHT about us…we’re all listening!

“Worthless: The Indispensable Guide to Choosing the Right…

College is the new high school—this is a truism for those high school students who are seeking to enter or remain in the middle-class. Indeed, a college degree has become the golden ticket, but for those who need to take out student loans or receive other financial aid to make college attendance feasible, that ticket has been getting more and more expensive over the years. Is it still worth it to purchase that ticket? The answer depends.
