Let It Fro. Let it Fro. Let it Fro…

What type of hair do you have? The answer doesn't really matter since nearly all ethnic hair has some form of coil, curl or kink. Blacks are the originators and perfectors of the illuminus hairstyle called the afro, or the 'fro' for the cool people. And no matter whether you got a little or a lot … Read More...

Confessions From a Woman Struggling with Her Sanity…Can You Relate?

Writing has always been my escape from life. I understood, at a very early age, that no one really gave a fuck about what happened to me. My job as a child, and especially as a foster child, was to shut the fuck up, don’t create trouble, obey and create as many opportunities for my […]

Strange Fruit…But It’s Still Good For You

So I went out to my lime tree this morning and found this… And somebody had a dirty mind and did this… And then The Hubster did this… In any case, no matter what they look like on the outside, the same skin-loving goodness is the same on the inside. I start my morning with […]

Sh!t Haters Say to Discourage Black Women From Dating Out

Attention haters, I have a confession. I only engage you in conversation in order to do the following: To demonstrate how much of an idiot you are, to show the world you’re an idiot, and to give real examples of your idiocy. Got this note on our Facebook fan page minutes ago. I was like […]

Dear Black People, Can We Support More Songs Like This?!

Okay I’m loving Pharrel right now. He killed it at the Oscars last night, and I loved how Lupita jumped in to get her grove on! Yes; Pharrel looks like the love child of Smokey the Bear and the Lucky Charms leprechaun, but even with that he’s still cute. He also seems to be a […]

Suddenly and very unexpectedly, before the game got started, Bill grabs Hillary by the collar and throws […]

Judge Not An Ally By Their Skin Color or Whom They Marry…Support is an Action

OMG…wow…super-duper congratulations to Lupita!! As Lupita Nyong’o tearfully accepts the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and thanks Steve McQueen for giving her the chance to shine. In an article written recently by The Root, one writer admits that an American-born black person would not have given Lupita a chance because she doesn’t fit the […]


The “Brown Girl” Academy Awards…Who Took the Show?

About the most interesting part of the Oscars is the fashion. That’s why I watch…otherwise I’d be watching last week’s Young and the Restless. Well…I can tell you who I’m picking…     I love everything about this dress except one thing. It calls too much attention to her (lack of) chest. Lupita has a […]

QOTW: White Guys Asks, “Does My Gorgeous, Black Co-Worker Like Me?”

The question: On the 3rd day of my new job I met the most beautiful and sexy woman I have ever met. She is black. It was very brief and before I jetted out of the break room (where we exchanged around 10 words) she asked me my name. I responded and asked for hers. […]
