Sh!t Haters Say to Discourage Black Women From Dating Out…

Attention haters, I have a confession. I only engage you in conversation in order to do the following: To demonstrate how much of an idiot you are, to show the world you’re an idiot, and to give real examples of your idiocy. Got this note on our Facebook fan page minutes ago. I was like […]

Dear Black People, Can We Support More Songs Like This?!…

Okay I’m loving Pharrel right now. He killed it at the Oscars last night, and I loved how Lupita jumped in to get her grove on! Yes; Pharrel looks like the love child of Smokey the Bear and the Lucky Charms leprechaun, but even with that he’s still cute. He also seems to be a […]

OMG…wow…super-duper congratulations to Lupita!! As Lupita Nyong’o tearfully accepts the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and thanks Steve McQueen for giving her the chance to shine.

The “Brown Girl” Academy Awards…Who Took the Show?…

About the most interesting part of the Oscars is the fashion. That’s why I watch…otherwise I’d be watching last week’s Young and the Restless. Well…I can tell you who I’m picking…     I love everything about this dress except one thing. It calls too much attention to her (lack of) chest. Lupita has a […]

The question: On the 3rd day of my new job I met the most beautiful and sexy woman I have ever met. She is black. It was very brief and before I jetted out of the break room (where we exchanged around 10 words) she asked me my name. I responded and asked for hers. […]

You Saw it Here First! Make Up Trends for the Oscars…Lori Taylor…

I don’t know about you, but I’m totally disinterested in who gets what award for the Oscars tonight. I’m more into what everyone will be wearing. “Each year I’m asked what the Red Carpet trends will be. I’ve definitely seen three distinct looks this season. A classic Hollywood glamour look with a defined cat eye […]

What’s In A Name?…

From time to time we discuss names black Americans give their children.  I have seen some pretty outlandish names encroached upon innocent children black and white alike who have to grow up and live in this society.  Some names subject children to endless bullying.  Having survived childhood teasing and possible bullying there is employment to consider.  It is […]

From ‘Fro to Flat Iron: Carol’s Daughter Monoi is the…

Last night I decided to straighten my hair to change my look up a bit while filming “Swirlr.”  You guys know I’m all about rocking my ‘fro, because its great camouflage for scraggly ends…which I have an abundance of. But because I’m a hopeless procrastinator and didn’t have time for a trim, I needed to […]

Latest from Robin Thicke: “I’m Just Trying to Get Her…

Well it looks like Robin might be seriously regretting how much he’s been acting a fool. Like I mentioned in an earlier post, Robin has always taken pride in the fact that, unlike his dad, he had a lasting marriage. Now that part of his prized identity is in jeopardy it looks as if he’s […]

Tyrese Gibson Speaks on DBR Men “They Love Low Standard Women…

What will it take for some women to realize that some dudes just aren’t worth having? The comment section will routinely blow up during conversations revolving around Black women and their disappointment in having not been chosen by the males in their immediate social circle. I just watch the shenanigans and shake my head because […]

A Rose by any other name: Pastel Pink Beauty Trends SS 2014…

This is my ode to pink. A color, that if I were put into as a child, I’d scream bloody murder. I hated the feminine soft color, so Barbie, so girlie, so submissive. I was everything but. I was a certified tomboy. I could climb trees with the best of them. That was then, and […]

Why are Black Women Mocked If Their Non-Black Mates Don’t Look…

I remember having conversations with some of my black girlfriends back in the day (way before I knew I’d marry interracially) about what it would take for us to entertain the idea of dating a white guy. Inevitably someone would declare, “If I ever date out, dude better look like Brad Pitt or it ain’t […]
