I stumbled across this video of the fabulous Barbara Hillary a couple years back and revisited it today. As a relationship coach, I meet many women who don't think they could go across town alone. Some will call their mothers for something as simple as breaking a necklace, or have a fit … Read More...
Spike Lee, Tyler Perry, and Quentin Tarantino: Why the White Guy’s ‘Django’ Did it Right for Right Now
Let me start by saying that I fully intended to hate every moment of Quentin Tarantino’s new film, “Django Unchained.” But…
Me and prominent writer and prominent social media feminist, Tami Winfrey Harris had a Twitter exchange regarding her article about Shawty Lo in “Clutch.” It’s worth the read, I think. The primary goal of “No Wedding No Womb” was to start a dialogue, and in so doing, begin to affect change. This is a good start.
Can you advocate for your people if you date interracially?
Just in time for Monday!
Ever had someone declare your anger? Without your input? Well, that’s because you’re an angry black woman, a Sapphire to be exact. Melissa Harris-Perry uncovers this stereotype as the third and perhaps most dubious image in the crooked room.
Here in America even we black folks take things for granted. We have had our civil rights movement behind us for decades and though the struggle continues, we can pretty much get what we want in this country with education and hard work. But there is an invisible group I would like to focus on today. That group would be our Afro-Latina sisters.

I mean the Afro Latina who identifies as black and is undeniably of African descent. These women proudly proclaim their heritage, but they are marginalized.
“I want no part of any group, system or structure that sells the lie of being equal partners in striving to overcome inequality and oppression while that supposed ally is also standing on my neck.”

I am THRILLED to announce that Shaun Brown has asked his girlfriend, Victoria for her hand in marriage, and she has accepted!
Every time I see a white woman with a black man, I must admit I get a little jealous. Not because I want her man, but because I wish it were just as easy for me to date interracially so my mind began to wonder: why is that? Why is it easier for black males to pursue IR than their female counterparts? Why or how are non-black females more easily able to pursue relationships with men outside their race than black women? It’s got to be more than a European standard of beauty.
