Shea Moisture continues to delight with product after quality product, and the newest expansion (a least it’s new for me) of the Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore line because I was really feeling the leave-in conditioner and the styling lotion, and I reported on it here.

‘Black or White’: New Film Tackles White Grandparents Raising Biracial…

It’s been great to see Kevin Costner regularly making films again. (We all love The Bodyguard, right? lol). Honestly, I had forgotten all about him until he surfaced at Whitney Houston’s funeral a few years ago, where he spoke quite eloquently and lovingly about her. Looking at his imdb page, he’s actually been working steadily […]

Take That, Haters! BB&W ‘Circle of Support’ In Action…

If you’ve been on the interracial dating pages on Facebook, you’ve probably run across this haterade:   People can be so cruel on the internet, and often forget that the people they demean and ridicule are real human beings, with real feelings. The above photo was a bastardization of this lovely one: Don’t you just […]

IRR Romance: Pretending With The Playboy…

The only exception to the rule is his aunt, and when Carter learns she’s terminally ill, he rushes to her bedside. Filled with fear and guilt—and desperate to ease his aunt’s mind—Carter does the only thing a guy could do…he panics and […]

AAWG: Lady J’s Dating Profile Pic Do’s & Don’ts…

by SavageTango I’m laying here on the bed, looking up at the ceiling, and I can’t move. Not after what some chick named Lady J just put me through. My body is beaten. My back is battered. My biceps are bruised. Physically, I am a broken man. But mentally? Well, that’s a whole different story, […]

Conservative White Men Married to Black Women Sound Off on Jesse…

People should really do their homework when they come for this community, because I find that you folks are truly galvanized to protect what’s yours!! After the disaster of an interview with the “Reverend” Jesse Peterson and his screeching, bigoted caller, you all wrote in to ask the host and producers some HARD questions. So many […]

Throwing Signs: Letting Him Know You’re Open and Interested…

Stalemates suck, don’t they? For every guy who’s asking, “How can I tell if the woman I’m interested in is open to dating non-black men?” there seems to be many black women who are scratching their heads, wondering: “Why do guys stare at me but never approach?” “Wait. Is he flirting with me? Nah. He’s […]

A Nigerian in Paris – Torn between 2 Terrors  …

Written by: Zara Chiron, check out her website here. I guess this is what I was getting at when I defined what the term ‘Afropolitan’ meant to me. West-African born with my life’s years spent across 3 different continents. I feel connected to everything, without ever truly feeling like I belong anywhere; a multi-cultural person somehow […]

Is Your Partner Addicted?…

It’s 2015, and time to look introspectively. Relationships are rarely easy; in fact, they’re usually pretty complex. Even when each member is ready, willing and emotionally able to put forth their best effort, issues pop up and things get complicated. And if you add mental illness, addiction, codependence and other psychological disorders to the mix, […]

Overcoming Ambivalence to Make Room for the Love You Want…

Does anyone else struggle with what to say when people ask the dumb, “Why is a pretty girl like you still single?” question? I usually have an arsenal of flippant answers ready to fire off, depending on how feisty I feel in that moment: “I’ve been kind of busy traveling the world. It’s hard to […]

See why.   You can listen to the whole interview here: If you would like to contact this “sage of wisdom” and ask him why he doesn’t think marriage to my […]

Vintage Never Gets Old…Shabby Apple Pinup Look…

It’s been a while since I sang the praises of Shabby Apple, a collection of vintage dresses that puts the sexy in classy. I love the look of the 1940s, and think black women wore the heck out of it.   I’m wearing the Bronwyn Dress, ($88) a blue and black fit-and-flare made of soft, […]

Beauty Tuesday: Easy Combo That Makes Skin Look So Dewy; Must-Have…

Achieving a dewy look can be a challenge, especially if you suffer from T-zone syndrome like I do. There hasn’t been one single magic-bullet formula that I’ve discovered, but I recently put together a mix of bb creams and bronzer that has seriously changed the game for me. I combined SMASHBOX BB Cream (Dark) , […]

Fear and Loathing; Interracial Dating When You’re 30+…

By Mamie Mooney For many women, dreams of love, marriage, and babies are a cluster of ever-whirling hormones, romance novels, and childhood fantasies.

What Skiing in Big Bear Taught Me About Interracial Dating Prospects…

This weekend was enlightening on so many levels. While me and the kids learned to ski for the first time, hubby was out on the highest mountain. I was relegated to the bunny slopes. And, after all that effort, I have a new appreciation for winter sports–that shit is hard. I’m sore like I was […]

Don’t You Just Love it When Racists Slip? Fox News Guest, Bob…

Someone sent me this link and I thought it was a joke. I mean, in this day and age, when interracial and intercultural relationships are at the highest approval of all time, some dusty old racist comes out to talk about how, “In his day, you didn’t see the mixing of the races.” It’s almost […]
