An event occurred earlier this month that garnered national news. On a lovely spring day in Portland, Maine, an interracially married couple wanted to take advantage of the sunshine and 60-degree weather by visiting downtown for some gelato. The family composition is as follows: Jeff is white, 47. Shay is black, 42. Shay has a son,Read More…
The holiday season is steadily approaching and we all want to look our best at our respective holiday shindigs. Glitter eyeshadow is way to up the glam factor and turn a few heads while you’re at it. I used Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Loose Glitter in an emerald green hue called “loaded,” and a pinkish purple shade […]
The Question: ” Christelyn Karazin, I seriously think you should do a segment on why black women until recently where so hesitant to date and marry non-black men. I think this would get the message out there that black women are open to IRR and marriages and it would also give the white men and […]
OMG…I have to just say that I am so grateful that my work allows me to meet people from so many walks of life. Because I’ve got to be honest..they Asian men I’ve met online are some of the most charming, down-to-earth, funny, and sexy men ever! I’m like, “Damn! Where were ya’ll when I […]
Steve Harvey, comedian and talk show pulpit extraordinaire is launching a dating website aimed at those looking for love in all the wrong places. And since he’s a professional husband (married three times) and now in the business of fixing lives (hence his mentoring program for black boys now in partnership with Paula Dean) Mr. […]
During my 72-hour Facebook exile, several people posted a letter on my wall from the eldest child of the man featured on Iyanla, Fix My Life who boasted 34 children by 17 different women. It was a ratings boon for the OWN Network, but left many of us sort of feeling like we needed a shower. […]
I grew up in a very strict Christian home and had no exposure to alcohol until I got to college. Now in my early thirties, I would consider myself a very light social drinker – there are only a few alcoholic beverages I enjoy: rum-based drinks, ciders (as compared to beer) and a handful of […]
We black women are (more often than not) blessed with amazing, high cheek bones…an envy by all, my lovelies! But what makes a good thing even better is using the right tools to call attention to this asset without looking like Bozo the Clown. I’ve recently discovered Jane Iredale’s creme-to-powder In Touch Cream Blush. I […]
Editorial by: Howard Tyrone Smith II Video: Christelyn Karazin HE SAID… The murder of Mary “Unique” Spears and countless other women that have died at the hands of men who were angered by their rejection speaks to a greater issue within the black community. I of course speaking am of the horrible way we as black […]
Formenonly requested that we move the brainstorm session to this thread so as not to derail the one this discussion originated on. Here is the space. Go at it.
In 1977 fifteen-year-old Karen Wexler stood on a dusty landing strip in Morocco as Tamir Rahman walked out of her life for good. It was the last time she’d see his direct, tender brown eyes and the ready smile that warmed her spirit. She was the isolated daughter of a U.S. Ambassador, while he was […]

Like many of our readers, I have been monitoring the story of the Oklahoma police officer accused of sexually assaulting eight black women. After weeks without news, I came across this Buzzfeed article from last month. This section stood out to me: Oklahoma NAACP President Anthony Douglas first learned of the Holtzclaw case on Thursday, Aug. […]
I’m so excited because I received a flurry of response from Asian men who saw my video request earlier this week… There’s a bunch of guys who want black women to know they’re interested, and here’s the scoop from one of them. So yeah–today’s the big day where we tackle this issue head on, no […]
by Dani NBC News has called him “the most interesting man in politics this November.” Newly released polls show Greg Orman (I) leading long-time Kansas Senator Pat Roberts (R) by seven points, a few weeks before Election Day. Roberts, who survived a scathing Republican primary against a Tea party candidate, initially seemed surprised by the […]
Hurricane by Taige Crenshaw Love has no color or boundaries. I start with that statement when someone asks me why I write interracial and multicultural romance. Then I follow that up with the next words, which usually get a befuddled and wide-eyed look from who I am telling it to. When I was growing […]
I knew I was on to something when you all asked me about what product/shade I was wearing when I did the You Tube video on staring yesterday. I decided to go really daring and incorporate my two favorite colors–pink and purple on my eyes using a mineral make up powder I had tried for […]
Greetings BB&W, As a strong supporter of your work and what it stands for, I’d like to say something to all the naysaying black men on this page: Dear Anti-Swirl Black men, as you sit and constantly shit on black women for doing what can only be described as out and out Reciprocity, Id like […]
This is a topic we don’t address nearly enough, but judging by the interest online, there’s quite a movement afoot. Asian men–who are arguably the quietest and most stealth regarding their dating practices–are finding their way to black women. But is it a thing?Some results of these connections have been amazing, resulting in engagements, marriages, and […]
The Question: What does it mean when men stare at you without smiling? This happens often to me, and i’m not doing anything out of the ordinary to be stared at. It is always white guys around my age that do this, the older ones will approach me and compliment me on my looks. (I’m […]
Sure Summer is over but ahhhhhhh the memories of sand and surf and beautiful babes in bikinis. So before we turn our attention to fall and all of the lusciousness to be seen during this season lets look back for a moment.
