Save Some Major Money on this Five Minute Mineral Makeup Look…

  I had an unexpected meeting this morning and didn’t have time to slather on a full makeup face. Lucky for me I was able to fake it with a mineral makeup bronze/coral look. If you’re in a crunch–whether for a meeting, unexpected visitor, or going out on a quick errand–you’ll look like you’ve spent […]

Interracial Couple

By “Zac Onbothsides” There we were, wow, she was stunning.  The conversation was easy, we were laughing.  We talked about our families and backgrounds.  If it’s not obvious from previous entries, I am a white man. And my date on this evening was an African-American woman.  So there we were, easing into some past personal […]

Congratulations! You’ve made it to midweek. Only a few more days to go. So since you’ve got some time on your hands and may find yourself sitting behind a computer in a cubie bored out your mind, I thought I’d give you a point to ponder. I can’t imagine being on the outside looking in […]

How to Mack To An Asian Guy……

  I swear, I WISH I had known how incredibly cool and down-to-earth Asian guys were when I was younger…maybe for romance, but at least friends, but damn if I’d mistakenly thought Asian men had absolutely no interest in black women. It wasn’t until I was heavy in research for Swirling that I’d learned so […]

Whorish NAACP Willing to “Forgive” Donald…

I have lost the last atom of respect for the organization my father was a member of–the NAACP. Apparently they are willing to “forgive” Donald Sterling for being a big, old racist asshole who was probably a slave owner in his past life. The NAACP said today they are still willing to work with Los […]

Monday Man Candy: April Showers Bring May Flowers…

The birds are enthusiastically chirping each morning. The days are a little longer and the natives are wearing less clothes. Indeed, Spring is in the air and you know what they say.. April showers bring May flowers. And in my experience, rain showers provide the perfect cover for a moment of Man Candy indulgence. Enjoy […]

My oldest kiddo, aka “Maxi Me” just finished a major project for her high school French class. Maxi is an artist and wants to enter the fashion industry and go to the ridiculously expensive, New School. I told her go for it, but I’m not paying unless you minor in a skill that you can […]

Black Women Who Seek To Eliminate Themselves “Out Of Love”…

I feel a mixture of compassion and frustration with black women who are determined to degrade themselves in the pursuit of seeking validation from poisonous sources. These women are often hostile to those who tell them that it’s pointless to self-segregate from the world when black men are doing the exact opposite. Not only that, these […]

BB&W Special Guest Dishes on Her Experience at a Black Woman/Asian…

Race-Based Dating? I’m a black woman who has always been attracted to guys of different races, but growing up in a segregated city in the Midwest, there weren’t many Asian people around, so I never even thought of liking Asian guys until I was about fifteen. Perhaps it started with all those Hong Kong action […]

Yeah. So, deep in the midst of an international Black woman celebration comes hecklers and haters aiming their teef sucking and unsolicited opinions at People Magazine’s naming Lupita Nyong’o’s the “Most Beautiful face of 2014“.

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 […]

I’ll admit it. I watch car crashes and train wrecks on Facebook. I lurk on so-called “black empowerment” pages ran by people who think beating up and belittling black women will make them “ack right.” It’s like I’m WTF-ing when I should be doing other stuff. I know. I have chronic rubber-necker disease. I guess […]
