Want to Meet This Guy? L.A. Folks, Meet Us at the Mixed Heritage…

It’s kind of funny who and how you meet folks. I met Philippe Koo on our fan page talking about how awesome Swiss Chard is. We bonded over leafy greens. Then I found out that he runs a You Tube channel called Team Mixed Show. But when I looked at his line up, I saw it […]

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 […]

RANT: I Am So SICK of Black Women Throwing THEMSELVES Under the…

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 […]

Someone tagged me on this Facebook question radio personality, Michael Baisden posed… When I read it I almost couldn’t believe the question. A black, male radio host, entrenched in the the black community, doesn’t know WHY black women dating interracially is STILL a problem? I really have a hard time believing that. But more on […]

Cramped for Space, But Got a Fence? Consider ‘Pocket’…

Urban gardening is coming into it’s own, and more and more innovative concepts are being developed so that more people can grow their own food no matter how little space they have. As long as there’s sun, there’s hope for you to get your garden on. I have quite a bit growing in my kitchen […]

WTF Another White Artist Who Sounds Like a Black Dude!…

Dang…I was listening to this guy in the car with the kiddies on the way to Easter service and I swear with that falsetto I pictured him to be a big, fat black dude. I was like, “This is the jam!” Later, Maxi shows me the video and points out who he was. The one […]
