Janet Jackson Rumored to Divorce: Are Some Differences Just Too…

Gossip rags are all a twitter about news that Janet Jackson (age 47) and husband Wissam Al Mana (age 39) may be headed for Splitsville. And I can’t say I’m very surprised.

Legion of Doom Mothers on Steroids — What the Cuss?…

This one is breaking my heart. I am very sympathetic to victims of domestic violence to a point. I have seen a lot of crimes and issued lots of arrest warrants. Every now and then you hear of a crime that sends you straight into prayer. I am amazed that this mother, Paula Johnson allowed her daughter […]

Must Read: Endless Opportunities Abroad For Women of Color…

There are times when we look at the world and the outlook seems quite bleak and then there are times when we look at the world and it seems unfair, and everything is trivialized. In a world where you’re cyber-bullied to walk on egg shells in the guise of political correctness, where people tell you […]

Roseanne Barr is Running for President, and She Thinks Siding With…

Some say that the more natural of political alliances are between the black man and the white woman. The theory is because both of them have the same oppressor: White men. And in some cases they also share a common hatred: Black women. I never thought that I’d believe it unless I saw it with […]

By Jane Brown Do you know how long marriage expert Mort Fertel says you should work on your marriage, once the thought of divorce enters your mind? One year. A full year.

Leona’s Love Quest: The Final Chapter…

It’s hard to believe that two years ago right before Valentine’s Day I sat down at my desk and crafted my introduction to “Leona’s Love Quest.” My purpose for doing so was to snap myself back into action after a far too extended break from dating. I thought sharing my experience would hold me accountable […]

Spring forward and get a jump start on your spring wardrobe….…

Those of us who are major fashion heads are always keeping our eyes trained forward to the next season although we may be firmly entrenched in one at the moment. Yes we have one month left of winter, but that doesn’t mean that we only have to be focused on winter. What about spring? It’ll be […]

Circles of Support: What Do All These Women Have In Common?…

What do we all have in common? We all love yoga, of course. But that’s not all. Each of us are interracially and inter culturally married. Starting from the left, that woman is married to a Korean man. Then me, married to the German/Irish/Polish guy, the Korean woman is married to an Englishman, the two […]

…And This Man Calls Himself a “Prophet,” While…

In the new media age, where ratchetry can be disseminated globally in a matter of seconds, I’m starting to wonder just how many preachers and self-proclaimed prophets are really just sociopaths and up-and-coming cult leaders. Watch this video and tell me if you can identify how this (probable) sociopath is attempting to use reverse psychology […]

Why Is Everyone Mad At A “Non-Working” Black Woman?…

I find that there are few things that piss off black people more than a stay at home black mother. Not stay at home mother, but stay at home BLACK mother. The minute a black woman opens her mouth to suggest she wants to be cared for out come the shamers and concern trolls in […]

You Tried It: On Unsuitable Men Hiding Behind “Feminism”…

In my previous article on the whole “gold digger” meme, I said the following: It is really tiring to me when I see people throwing [the word gold digger] at a black woman the minute she opens her mouth about wanting to date and marry a man of means or at the very least has more […]

Talking To My Bi-Racial Kids About Black History Month…

On the outside looking in, folks might think being in an interracial marriage means we’re obsessed with discussing race. We’re not. We’re just like any other family with four kids…completely chaotic. But I take Black History Month as an opportunity to talk to the kiddos about the history of African Americans in the country–the good, […]

What We Thought All Along! Internet Trolls are Sociopaths,…

And people wonder why we moderate the hell out of this blog.  This just in from Slate… In the past few years, the science of Internet trollology has made some strides.
