Summer in Southern California means dry heat that can shrivel everything…from the plants in my garden, to my skin and hair. Where my hair is concerned, I have in the past solved the problem of dryness with the ultimate moisturizer–water. I’m a big fan of Carol’s Daughter conditioning cleanser for that purpose, but still, myRead More…
This news release came in my inbox this morning, and I though it was significant enough to share it here in it’s entirety. What I find ironic is decades ago, it was high-income people who led the trends for marrying less and divorcing more. Poor people were aghast by them…remember? Then for a variety of reasons, it seems that the trend trickled down, but then more educated folks realized that single parenting and divorce ain’t the business, but poor people don’t seem to have gotten the memo.
This piece originally ran in the now defunct (I think) Pregnancy magazine in 2010. Watching that cute video of the Nulls inspired me to dig this out this little diddy for the folks who requested the blog talk more about sexual health and lady parts.
Nobody can tell me that this way isn’t the best way. Well, I guess they could, but I wouldn’t pay them a lick of attention.
“If white men are moving into black neighborhoods and seeing black girls they find attractive, what’s to stop them from approaching?”
“My dog is named Beau. He is really sweet. He turns 13 on July 7th. Taking hikes with him on some of the local trails is one of my favorite things.” (Insert photo of dog with or without owner in profile)
At the most recent Awards-Show-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named, un-famous rapper Machine Gun Kelly (also known as “MGK”)–you never heard of him? Me neither–spoke to a reporter on the red carpet where he felt the need to announce his feelings about the sexuality of black women. So Mr. Machine Gun has a black daughter, which he thinks gives him […]
This is by far our most amazing event to date. Ritzy location, upscale clientele, a chance to meet that someone special. What more could you ask for?
I’m looking to bring on an experienced writer to focus on healthy-hair practices, styling, product reviews, and can demonstrate how-to tutorials via video.
It wasn’t the movie from the 80s that made pink famous but the pre-love child of the 60s is making a comeback in all its various shades. Which pink shows off your varied personalities?
This woman and her sister, Venus, have been laughed at, bagged on, talked about and belittled, and still the move toward excellence with a quiet dignity. And in the end…they always win. So, steady hand clap for Serena.
Got to love Twitter. It’s mostly inane, but sometimes you can hook up with some great folks.
Everybody say, “Oooommmm”
“What is this love affair that many black women have with dysfunction and misery? So dedicated to this non-sense that they will not only do anything to defend it, they will attack any woman with resentment and hostility who seeks out more positive alternatives.”
#42 looks gorgeous on all our hues!
If you haven’t said you’re coming, you’d better do it now. We’ve got limited space and limited free items. I’d hate for anyone in the crew to miss out.
It truly hurts my heart that so many black women have been beaten down, so much to the point that they don’t even think that deserve even the most basic of emotional, physical and financial expectations that women of other races have.
As an aside, I have to give props to the online black media at large who [mostly] remained open to the message of the book, and upon reading it, realized that this book was not about white knights and white-man worshiping, nor was it about black-men bashing. There is one blog magazine in particular that has it out from me, but I’m heartened that most people can see through their agendas.
The Republicans have tried just about every trick in their book in an attempt to stigmatize and ignore those in this country who don’t fall under the banner of “White Anglo-Saxon Protestant”. During the Republican primaries the suggestions as to how to stem the tide of illegal immigration–which, by the way, had been decreasing for some time already and is now at a net-zero–became increasingly punitive and downright bizarre.
I come back to SoCal and find all Hades breaking loose on the BB&W fan page. Find out why.
Ever get cult recruited?
