How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
“I’m scared myself. My girlfriend is scared for me as well, as she’s dated outside of her race before and has been tempered to the stares that an interracial relationship tends to garner, along with the insults, etc.”
We’ve been battling this issue for months. Many of us (including myself) believe that most white feminists don’t give a crap about black women and girls, but talk a good game because they know and understand the power of building alliances in order to further your agenda. Black women have lapped up this pablum for decades and in many ways, we are worse off. People thought I was being unreasonable about my stance on feminists, but here’s a real-life example, and I for one am glad Clutch was brave enough to run this story.
Anta Majigeen Ndiaye or Anna Madgigine Jai Kingsley was not always the free Senegalese woman who eventually became a plantation and slave owner. At 18 years old, her owner Zephaniah Kingsley, one of the most powerful men in Florida freed the 18 year-old woman mother of his 3 children and married her. As Florida was under Spanish colonial rule where manumission laws were more liberal than American. Her husband saw slavery as a temporary condition related to economics more than race. Anna learned to operate the plantations as effective as Zephaniah.
Emperor Kneegrowplease has attempted to execute Order What-The-Cuss, a mental override code intended to stop the flow of persons joining the Rebellion. The hope is this code will effectively shut down black women moving away from black group think that works against them, and at the same time promote the lie that THE MAN (TM) wants to break up black households and send black women off to be with white men and black men off to be with white women. Thus destroying black love forever.
No matter how many times you see the commercials, just don’t do it!
Hood-boogerism isn’t just a byproduct of the lower class, and I can prove it.
The White House and Congress are at yet another stand-off about policy and, with a looming “sequestration” deadline this week, sweeping cuts could be devastating for the American economy. Interested now?
I’m a new mom and I thought the worst thing I would encounter at five months is teething, but because of my baby’s West African roots, combing her hair could be a top contender. photo 2 I was mistakenly under the impression, (as I have been with several things so far) that I wouldn’t have to worry about that for at least a year, but my child has hair covering every inch of her big circumference. The good news is with baby oil, a wide toothed baby comb, and above all, distraction in the form of breastfeeding, we are able to get through it. But I couldn’t help but wonder if our journeys going to be more difficult if I stay reserved on my stance to never give her a relaxer.
This may be one of the THE MOST INSIGHTFUL infographics for the single ladies…lol
In the March edition of Numéro, a prominent international fashion magazine, white 16-year-old model, Ondria Hardin, poses in full-on, full-bodied bronzed hue. The editorial spread was called, of all things, “African Queen.” Now, I have heard of fashion icons and imagery being a bit “avant-garde” but my goodness this is some mess.
Every season there is always a staple piece to have in your closet to wear with just about any and everything. This SS2013 is no different. The biggest color trend is white hot and this white blazer is perfect for 2013. You can buy it at H&M for $49.95. This is an inexpensive way to stay on trend.
The Onion is stinking to high heaven on this one…
A white racist father instructed her supervisor that he did not want any African American’s caring for his sick baby. The hospital complied and even posted a note on the child’s chart reinforcing the order. What the cuss?
Eletha Finch was so gracious and humble accepting her late husband, Peter Finch’s Oscar. It is logical that the widow of an actor should accept any award in honor of her husband (or vice versa). But in 1977, race definitely was a factor in Eletha NOT being asked to accept the award on her husband’s behalf.
Not sure if you ladies are aware of the INCREDIBLE amount of non-black men lurking on this blog. Why are they here? Research and intelligence gathering, of course. Some have already dating black women in the past, some are currently dating or even married to black women, and other are here straggling along the fence. This post is for the straggling dudes. As many of you know, Jordan is my dear friend–and he knows his stuff. –Chris
Some women have “it” and some just don’t. By “it” I mean the motivation, willpower, and means to become women who everyone admires, emulates, and reveres as “the best when compared to the rest”. These are the women who respectable, successful, and admiration-worthy people of all races hold up as examples of the type of woman or Black woman they wish all Black women could be. Let’s call her “Kerry Gabrielle Michelle”.
In such a marriage and family-oriented society, I don’t see any kind of accommodations for singles happening anytime soon and black women are still marrying at the lowest rate among all groups (with the legal right) in America. Do you think it’s true that marrieds have it better than singles or is this just another case of the grass looking greener on the other side?
Mahala Lynch Davis, married her former slave owner Isaac P. Davis in 1857. On the right is their daughter Martha Davis Wilson (b. 1848) holding her baby Julia Wilson (Car). Davis freed Mahala and then married her moving from his former Virginia plantation to Chilicothe, southern Ohio.
Question: What are some other ways to differentiate between someone who is “damaged beyond repair” and a “work in progress”?
