In 1977 fifteen-year-old Karen Wexler stood on a dusty landing strip in Morocco as Tamir Rahman walked out of her life for good. It was the last time she’d see his direct, tender brown eyes and the ready smile that warmed her spirit. She was the isolated daughter of a U.S. Ambassador, while he wasRead More…
This is foolishness at its finest. I’m not a Real Housewives of Atlanta Fan. In fact, I’ve never watched the show other than the occasional snippet that I see when I walk into a room where someone else is browsing for something to watch or when I’m browsing for something to watch. But I do […]
I was up at the wee hours of the morning last night and saw this commercial… This is brilliant, and I wish it could be shown on the television more.
I was given permission by L. B. Kelle to share a recent experience she had. Now I know the loyal readers of BBW would have some choice words to say to anyone who dare questions why she would want/love/marry a white man. Ultimately I agree with Lillian’s final assessment but I don’t think I would have […]
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and for the romantics at heart, this is the ultimate day of love for the whole year. And apologies to the fellas, but this guide is a gift guide for her, well not HER the movie, but for the fabulous ladies in your lives. As we know, not […]
On the heels of Super Bowl XLVIII that featured the halftime show featuring Bruno Mars we’ve got a plethora of articles regarding this mixed raced rockabilly throwback. One such article featured here was based on the HuffPo article , “What Race is Bruno Mars”. Strangely enough, this caused a minor collective gasp when used by our Blog […]
It is no secret that black women have been marrying interracially for centuries although some folks may want us to think otherwise. It is simple fact. Research into archived documents and photos prove this. without question In honor of Black History Month, I will be sharing some photos or portraits of black women interracial marriages and […]
I’m really proud of myself that at the end of 2013, I had kept my New Year’s resolution. I think I had success because I didn’t give myself some long, unachievable list that only SUPER ME could do, as opposed to just old regular me. I gave up white sugar and most processed foods, and […]
I made a few resolutions for this year. For example, I would try to be less confrontational and not expend energy in pointless arguments. Another resolution was to severely reduce the amount of give-a-damn I have when it comes to black people determined to be trifling. Not just trifling: Wanting someone to rescue or feel […]
Another gem from Pinterest. Attractive couple Christine and Daryl had a Fusion African-European wedding, but the couple lives in Perth, Australia. I love the beautiful photographs courtesy of Evermore Photography. To see all of the fabulous wedding pics of this gorgeous couple, check them out at the Truly Engaging website. What a stunning bride! […]
Monkey Bread (Made from scratch) Whereas traditional Monkey Bread is made from canned biscuits, this healthier version builds a base from scratch using a combination of all-purpose and whole wheat flours. Waiting for the dough to rise two times will test one’s will and patience, but the end result is certain to make it all […]
I’m making my rounds this morning to read all the news, rags and gossip and was struck by this woman. Before I read the story, I took in the image. I thought the contrast in her lipstick against the white and black clothing and her brown skin was all and everything. Then I read […]
Okay, the game was a complete blowout, and it seems as if the Seahawks were the only ones who showed up to play and actual game. The highlight, hands down, was the performance of Bruno Mars. He sounded amazing and looked amazing. The 50’s look and the pompadour was everything. Guess what race Bruno is […]
Do you ever notice that the most brilliant amongst us are often slaves to their own internal torment? I was shocked to hear that Philip Seymour Hoffman died yesterday, apparently by a drug overdose. Not gonna lie, when I first heard, part of me thought about how Hoffman always looked pasty and winded, and thought […]
You’d think so if you listened to conservative media sites. Take a look at this snippet from Human Events: Gore said such efforts to manage African women’s fertility were important in his desire to reduce the growth of human population. Gore complained there will be more Africans than either Chinese or Indians by mid-century and […]
Ever wanted to demonstrate the paradox of Black Male [Mixed] Privilege by systematically illustrating how male privilege is fully analogous to White privilege? Perhaps this post will be helpful.
Black men are in the complex position of being quite privileged in one sphere of human activity — romantic relationships — while being quite disempowered in all other spheres of human activity. As ever with any human being, privilege is hardly acknowledged, while disempowerment is appropriately and loudly resented.
Hey all, check out another version of the Cheerios Super Bowl commercial that’s taking America by storm, featuring The Hubster, and my two youngest kiddos. Yep. Swirling comes in a lot of different flavors. Go Sea Hawks!!
Did y’all catch that Grammy performance? Dayum. I thought she had lost it as she had be gone for a minute, but we should never count King Bey out. Yes, I call her King Bey not, Queen Bey. I had left the BeyHive after no real music for 2 years and hearing “Bow Down” before […]
The life of a light skinned Black female can be an amazingly confusing place. The fact of the matter is that I didn’t necessarily understand my complexion to be something so, er, complex. My earliest memory of reference to skin tone was made by my Grandma Hill when she explained the three major races to […]
I’ve been hinting about this for a while, and I guess I could tell you, but it’s probably better to just show you… So what is it? About the Series The series begins with our “Swirling” Experts, Christelyn Karazin and Jordan Harbinger, interviewing single clients who are looking to expand their dating options in […]
Poking a dollar-wrapped finger into the eye of haters across America, Cheerios will bring back the interracial family that brought so much controversy. As we’ve mentioned, advertisers are hip to the FACT that more and more families in America look like us, or have relatives, friends and co-workers who do. In fact, General Mills believes […]
