Let’s just be honest. Share this message far and wide.
If Robin Williams, the brain behind the “blerdy” Bowtie Behavior, looks familiar, then you must have seen her in a Wix commercial. That’s where I first saw her and just knew I had to hit her up. Williams, 30, came up with the idea for creating hip bow ties after a failed search for […]
Mother’s Day is May 8. Don’t you want to give the mom in your life something that you didn’t put more than five minutes of thought into? Not to be a nag, but… Cute in the Kitchen Because I love cooking…and looking cute while I do it…“Your Life’s Chirp” apron from ModCloth, $29.99. Pretty […]
This weekend I met up with some of my family in Laguna Hills, California. After a few drinks, there’s no telling what we’ll all say.
So Harriet Tubman, the iconic slave woman who ushered her brethren to freedom via the Underground Railroad, will grace the $20 bill in American currency. It’s been a long time coming. I’m glad for it. But when I look at her portrait, there’s a lot I see that many black women, over a century later, […]
The person you see above used to look like this… It’s would be an understatement to say the changes of this extremely talented wrapper have been striking. I’m not in this woman’s head, but it seems as if she’s trying to transform herself into the type of women men in her hip hop circle […]
We all dream of having a flawless face but let’s be honest no one has perfect skin. I have been told plenty of times I have a flawless face but little do they realize that makeup is one of the biggest components to my “naturally” flawless skin…not to mention drinking tons of water! Nothings wrong […]

The recent prom proposal business http://www.beyondblackwhite.com/disturbing-trend-prom-proposals-kool-aid-watermelon-really/ We will also cover the responses we have had from people outside our community to the sandman response video
So…Prince died today. I can hardly believe it, and took it even harder than when I found out Michael and Whitney passed. I guess because Prince spoke to me in ways that others didn’t–he put so much of himself into his art, but his private life was enigmatic. If you wanted to know about him, […]
I’ve noticed a rather disturbing trend with high-school kids and prom proposals–white guys asking black girls to the prom with posters reflecting racist stereotypes. Worse, we see photos of the black girls smiling gleefully as they accept said proposals. I have never seen anything so blatantly derogatory by white boys coupled with the […]
Anybody who’s read this blog long enough knows I’m a product junkie…like…it’s a real problem. In my defense, I long buy the good stuff. But I’ve been stacking up the shampoos and conditioners from 100% Pure Cosmetics and absolutely loving them! I can hardly decide which is my favorite, because all of them are leaving […]
This blog post isn’t necessarily about MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way). It’s about some of the members, who circle around the periphery of the movement who make it their business to poison the well and further drag the name and image of black women. Let’s not act like there hasn’t been a segment of […]
By now you might have heard that The Talk co-host, Aisha Tyler is breaking up from Jeff Tietjens, her husband of over 20 years. She wanted to do the divorce private. Unfortunately, Aisha Tyler says on The Talk today, that there are people who “perch at the courthouse always looking for dirt,” and released the […]
Sometimes I get the most absurd questions… Thanks for the great videos…very educational 🙂 I have a question. As a white male from the Southern USA, I have…I would say “grown” out of certain ideas about interracial relationships. It wasn’t because of any one book I read, or sensitivity training classes, but just a gradual […]
Got this comment off a You Tube video I did. Take a look. And that, in a nutshell, is why I get trolled so hard.
John Smelser, Knox Count Schools security officer. (KNOX COUNTY SCHOOLS) Recently we heard about a Mississippi couple evictedfrom their trailer home because they were an interracial couple. And now we have a Tennessee security guard claiming that he was fired because his racist supervisor discovered he has a black wife and “black” (that is, biracial […]

It’s been a while since we’ve unleashed one of these! OT away, mattys!

I took this shot at sunset in Coronado, a little island across the bridge from downtown San Diego. I loved how the colors of oranges and yellow bathed everything in the most beautiful light. It’s what photographers call “the golden hour.” I’ve been using Shea Moisture liquid foundation recently, because it’s slightly darker than the […]
The Question: Dear Christelyn: I am a 26 year old graduate student from Chicago whom is stuck in a pickle. Apparently. I have been having a strong interest in partaking in interracial dating but I am currently talking to a white guy around the same age as me but this is not the problem at heart. […]
