Rachel Dolezal isn’t going to let anyone take her ‘blackness’ away from her. Because her being a white woman impersonating a black woman gets her more attention, praise, dates, etc. And why? Light-skinned privilege. Dolezal says as much in her interview with People magazine: In the book, which will be released on March 28, theRead More…
Teeth gaps, as opposed to thigh gaps, (har har har) seem to be carving out a new fashion trend, loosely dubbed, “Perfectly Imperfect,” and I could be happier. Check out the Fall 2015 Urban Outfitters catalog! I remember as a kid having issues about the whole tooth gap thing, and so did my mother, who […]
We’ve seen this photo all over, and was shared by a legion of people. It was overwhelmingly positive, but one (ostensibly) black man took issue. “F**king disgrace smh smh nasty ass crakka touching sister hair smh” And, powerful man with the necessary resources stood up for himself and his sweet little black daughter. In the […]
I often get asked to review the dating profiles of black women who are on sites like InterracialDatingCentral, but most of the time, I pass on it. It’s way too time consuming, and it’s essentially coaching and I simply don’t have the time or resources to do it for free as much as I’m asked. […]

It’s a question I asked Maxi’s two girlfriends this weekend when I found out the signed her up for BlackPeopleMeet. Take a listen. Have a “white friend” dating horror story? Do share…

About the Author: I write romance books (Sci-fi and historical), for a medium-sized press (eXtasy Books/Devine Destinies) headquartered in Canada, […]
First off, I have to be honest and say that I have never heard of i Heart Memphis until today. I have also never heard the the that got him featured on this national hip hop station. But I clicked the link on Bossip (yeah I know) because the title said “The Swirl: I Heart […]
For this Thanksgiving, I thought it might be a little fun to give thanks to aallll the dudes that dogged you out, left you, cheated, used and abused you so you could make room for the REAL love of your life. I’ll go first. I am so very, VERY thankful that Ronnie C. dumped me […]
Your wish is our command.
Were there no discussions about displaying a little variety in the melanin spectrum? I mean… What really being said here?
Dear Roxanne, I have to say that as a fellow black woman blogger, I’m disappointed in you. It appears that your impression of the hair God gifted you with is inferior to the straight silky hair of the people who first taught you that your unique beauty couldn’t hold a candle to theirs. And I’m […]
First, I’m not even going to give a set up this video from relationship coach, Matthew Hussey. There is no intro needed. After listening to the words, and Matthew rightfully mocking them, you have, in one song, the prime reason women are having so much trouble in relationships. Songs that basically say, “I won’t […]
We love you, Chesca!! And YESSS to the IR flow happening there…;-)
Everyone on Pinterest and Instagram is all over the mermaid look, because make up companies can come up with a dreamy, aquamarine shade that looks like the gills of…well…a mermaid. And while these shades can stand alone, it’s fun to see how you can combine to make a really tight, finished look. It’s easier than […]
This post is not for the regulars. Just like I point out the good, I’m going to point of the bad. Not just bad, but utterly horrible. I was sent an audio interview between an author and blogger, Pearl Jr. and Tariq Nasheed. And after listening to this man’s blatant disrespect this man has for […]
It has to be said. The whole concept of the mass hysteria of black female “fetishization” is a psychological tactic that is being used to keep black women from dating non-black men, and visa versa. Here’s how: Fetishization makes black women fearful of dating non-black men, and is a method to knock a “black beauty […]
Sometimes we think that the whole interracial dating issue is something that younger people don’t really think about. I mean, all that baggage from decades ago has them twice removed, right? Wrong. Racism shows up in the most creative and unexpected ways–and this time, it came in the form of a Hispanic girl who couldn’t, […]
Like everyone else, my husband and I watched in horror as the news about the coordinated terrorist attacks in Paris unfurled. It’s the worst attack on the French since World War II. So…this is sort of…their 9/11. I’ve observed the mass immigration of Middle Eastern and North African refugees, as well as the resistance by […]
The video interview that I did with Angel Ramirez-Jordan this week was insightful content, as long as you skip the comments section. No one complained about our discussion, but guess what they found fault in? My looks (“She’s not that beautiful”) and diction. Apparently I have an “annoying voice” that “sounds of white” it’s a shame.” […]
