Urban Decay Wants You To Wear Color This Spring. A LOT of It.…

You guys know I love just about everything Urban Decay, but I think their new “Electric” palette may be a contender with their best-selling NAKED palettes–just on the other end of the spectrum. These colors are BOLD and look MAGICAL on dark colored skin. Think Lupita, ya’ll.   Contrary to what you might believe, bold […]

Like Cheerios, Honeymaid Sticks It To the Haters…

What’s sad is that many of the people who rail the hardest against interracial, intercultural, interfaith and same-sex unions have no idea how hateful they appear. But we at BB&W firmly believe that love is LOVE, and we support Honeymaid and Cheerios for sticking a […]

How Bleaching Products Promoted Colorism in the 1950’s…

I saw this on “SwirlQueen’s” Facebook feed, published in the 1952 issue of Jet magazine. You know, that magazine that’s supposed to celebrate black people??   What you’re looking at, ladies and gentlemen, is a damn-near-white black woman embracing her black kang. What was the message? “Listen dark butts! Use this cream and then maybe […]

Jennette McCurdy Messed with the Wrong Dude; Hit Show Gets Cancelled…

There’s a lesson in here somewhere, I’m sure of it. Jennette McCurdy, co-star of the hit Nick show, Sam and Cat, got a rude awakening after she messed with the wrong baller by publicly criticizing his (lack of) sexual prowess. After McCurdy publicly shamed Drummond’s kissing skills and lack of romantic game, a racy photo […]

I write this piece, dirty and dusty, after 1.5 hours on a cantankerous horse that I think was trying to kill me today on a trail in the Santa Barbara mountains. We’re on a mini vacation on the outskirts of the S.B., and The Hubster and I thought it would be a good idea to […]

Who Gets Away With Raping Innocent Kids? Blackinstani Folks and Really…

This headline stuck in my craw this evening: “Du Pont Heir Gets Probation for RAPING Three-Year-Old Daughter.” The suuummmbitch… And why, pray tell, did the judge give him such a lenient sentence? Because he was so worried about the near 300-pound and over six-foot-tall pedophile having it hard in prison. So let me get this […]

Being in the ‘greatest city in the world’ also offers […]
