Taking This Show On The Road–#Swirling Going National!…

These events, ya’ll–I don’t mean to make you jelly or anything, but they continue to be amazing. Even in 98-degree heat (well, at least it’s a dry heat) nearly 50 people showed up to our “Swirling” book signing at Europa Village in sun-shiny Temecula. I was slightly annoyed with the folks that RSVP’d five minutes before the event, but I was able to forgive it, since we nearly sold out of all the books we brought. We had so much dang fun, people keep asking, “When’s the next one??!”

My Take on the Gabby Douglas Cluster Cuss……

I was asked to chime in on the Gabby Douglass daddy situation by my buddy Rico, who runs a show on Livestream. I also finally speak out about a certain black-woman-hating man who has been slandering me for two years. For the curious, here it is. We get into the juicy stuff at around 18:00. Sound may be kind of low, so turn your speakers up.

Black Women, Love and Where They WON’T Find It (Part 2)…

This is the follow-up post to my previous article on how little sense it made for black women to waste their time looking for love and acceptance from directions it was not forthcoming. At the end of the article, I asked why. Just why do so many black women handicap themselves in this regard and waste so much valuable time and valuable love? This part will discuss some possible theories and then I’d love to open the floor to the community members as to how black women can get around this irrational way of dealing with love.

The Rise of the ‘Bitter Beckys': “Yes Virginia, There…

What the heck is wrong with black women, who have been despised, beaten down, told they are ugly and that they are no more than some thug’s sperm receptacle, and no man in existence could possibly find us attractive getting an ego boost? What’s wrong with giving shine to men of all races, colors and creeds who REJECT these messages and find beauty in our blackness??
