There are many falsehoods some black people believe, and that other people believe about us. But none such falsehood is more destructive than “Black people don’t commit suicide. Only white people do that.” Over the years, that stereotype has been challenged as we’ve witnessed high-profile black women succumb to their internal demons and bid theRead More…

Amazing–Jesse Jackson says NOTHING about these rappers degrading black girls and women. But when “Lil Rat” insults a Civil Rights icon, he flexes his muscles. If there has EVER been a doubt about who is MORE important in “the struggle” set your minds at ease. If the answer isn’t clear by now, you just may not want to face reality.
Welp, here’s some new study that seems to inherently make a whole lot of sense. Just like the study that says people who eat real vegetables are healthier than people who eat McDonald fries for theirs, or people who live next to freeways have less healthy lungs than people who live in the Connecticut countryside. Sociologist Elizabeth McClintock of the University of Norte Dame released a study basically suggesting that more attractive women have less casual sex than “unattractive” women, because the less-pretty will often negotiate sex as a compromise. Her study included both men and women, but for this post I’m going to just concentrate on the women. Here’s the highlights:
Does that name sound vaguely familiar? Well, if you reside in Southern California, you probably know his name all too well. The 33-year-old SoCal resident allegedly went on a killing spree beginning two weeks ago on Super Bowl Sunday. He is reported to have killed two Irvine residents, one Riverside police man and another officer just yesterday in the Big Bear Lake area. All the while, he evaded capture by setting his own car ablaze and escaping to remote locations on foot. Sound fake? It’s not.

I am not talking about sex, and those elements in that process of two people experiencing the physical aspects of enjoying each other as man and woman. You know, the stuff Mother Nature has in place to allow organisms to procreate. Could I make that any more dry and sound like a lecture from a Biology teacher that puts everyone to sleep? Good, if you are still reading, now I get to the interesting stuff… I am talking about intimacy, that myriad of little actions that allow you and your Boo to enjoy each other as a couple, as a unit, as ONE with whom you just kind of melt together a bit.
Swirling made another small step forward this weekend, when our Meet-up group (Sisters With White Misters) met at Rassela’s Jazz club in San Francisco. It was, for so many reasons, a memorable swirling experience and a true demonstration of community being created.

This woman threw herself to protect a man who hated her simply for the color of her skin. Could you have done it?
Black people are having problems accumulating wealth because their relatives bleed them dry?
“It feels like I’m constantly being attacked…”
Well this is disappointing news. Looks like all the promotion about fish oil lending protection against heart disease might have been more gimmick than good science. The Sept. 12 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association published a review of over 20 studies involving over 70,000 patients–some of which were heart patients–that revealed that fish oil gave no real protection for the heart.
Elegance gives the basic building blocks.
Is it fair when people, men in particular, express fear of black women?
This 32 year-old doctor is ready to expand her dating options, but there’s a few snags she needs us to work out…
What happens when our enemies acquire drones? What if they write a manifesto declaring how subjectively they can target US citizens living in America? This is a valid question and remains unanswered.

Clement Ribeiro S/S 2013 London Fashion Week Winter still has us in her grip in the Northern Hemisphere and it would seems that tempest will not pass soon. However, she will in about six weeks.

“I am relatively new to your website and blog. I think most of your readers are young women and men. I wished there was a website like yours in my 20’s and 30’s perhaps I would have made different choices.”
It is a strange lot to be a black woman in American society. She was brought to this country to be an unpaid worker, a concubine and a broodmare. Her body and her sexuality has been reviled and experimented on but from the various brilliant shades of brown black people come in, is curiously loved.
