Hey all, check out another version of the Cheerios Super Bowl commercial that’s taking America by storm, featuring The Hubster, and my two youngest kiddos. Yep. Swirling comes in a lot of different flavors. Go Sea Hawks!!
Did y’all catch that Grammy performance? Dayum. I thought she had lost it as she had be gone for a minute, but we should never count King Bey out. Yes, I call her King Bey not, Queen Bey. I had left the BeyHive after no real music for 2 years and hearing “Bow Down” before […]
The life of a light skinned Black female can be an amazingly confusing place. The fact of the matter is that I didn’t necessarily understand my complexion to be something so, er, complex. My earliest memory of reference to skin tone was made by my Grandma Hill when she explained the three major races to […]

This video holds the record for appearing in my inbox. I must have gotten 20. Woot! This is awesome, but pretty soon it’ll be as normal an image as…well…vanilla and chocolate ice cream. Advertisers aren’t doing this out of some social advocacy. This is where the world is going, folks. Now go mop your floors.

A very strange and angry black man called Sergeant Willie Pete is enraged by me. He’s enraged because he took a comment I said in a You Tube video in which I was very honest and said that I really didn’t embrace my beauty until it was validated from external sources–yes; I didn’t think I […]
