Ladies, Do NOT Date Interracially if You’re Too Suspicious of…

A non-black man just sent me the email below regarding an exchange he had with a black woman on OKCupid that he found attractive. This woman is so defensive, so quick to try and discover closet racism, quick to start a fight, and suspicious of whether or not she’s being fetisized. Can I just say […]

Interracial Friendly States, City by City, County by County!…

I’m working on a master list NEVER BEEN DONE before (not sure why, tho) on an interracial dating blog. Back when I co-work Swirling, we created a list of interracial-friendly cities and states, and some of them were not really a surprise–Los Angeles and pretty much all of California, parts of Texas, some fly over […]

Open Thread: “How Do I Explain My Preference for Black Women…

Okay well he didn’t say that…exactly. Here’s what this 20-something white guy actually wrote… Mrs. Karazin,I’m not ashamed and I make it pretty well known amongst my friends that I have acquired an affinity for black women. As a result, I’ve had several people ask me (out of curiosity instead of disgust, I hope) why […]

Why I Have Mixed Feelings About the Firing of the Co-Host of the…

I remember when I was working as a lowly PR grunt representing a bagel company and trying to get a mention on the “Opie and Anthony” show when they were based in San Diego. I thought it was just a regional thing, but imagine my surprise that over time these shock jocks dominated the radio waves […]

New Documentary on the Black Church Shines a Light on Prosperity Pimps…

I have to give credit where it’s due, because columnist Deborrah Cooper was the first to shine a light on how the church exploits black women and milks them of their resources. I remember interviewing Deborrah on this issue way back in the day. The conversation continues with this newly-released documentary from Moguldom Studios. I […]

It is such a holistic mode of exercise that quiets the mind, detoxifies the body, and builds muscle, improves posture, and produces a sleek, feminine physique.   Because there are so many varieties, sometimes folks can get […]

One Black Mother’s Heartbreaking Story of Raising Her Son…

When I read this very personal account from Breukelen Bleu, the founder of the Black Woman Think Tank, I knew I had to share it. So much of the criticism of single mothers raising black sons focuses on blaming the MOTHER for all the negatives. She and she alone is to blame if her son is […]

Last week I took this picture to memorialize how I look at 40. If you would have told my 20 year-old-self that I’d feel better and look better an nearly 41, I would have lobbied to have you committed. I’m proud of a few things at this point in my life. I’m growing my own […]

Grow It in a Bag: Patio-To-Plate Encourages Container Gardening…

As I turn off a dusty road in Temecula wine country, I can’t help but be impressed with Catrina’s green house, where she’s growing just about everything you can imagine. She’s growing everything–all non-GMO organic seeds she also sells–in containers, to stay in containers. Catrina is convinced urban dweller can grow their “garden of eating” […]

I’m convinced most of the wealthy black elite class in America could not give two negative phucks for ‘regular’ black people, and they’re willing to sell folks a bill of hoodwinked goods if it will turn 30-note of silver. News you’re about to hear now won’t likely be reported in the same way everywhere else […]

Open Thread: Hotep-Dude’s Idea of a Legit Harem….You Know,…

This photo and subsequent caption came along my Facebook feed, and not the first time–I’ve seen lots of propaganda of late advocating polygyny–or, er–polygamy, which basically means the same thing. My first thought is, what benefit is this to black women, who out-educate, out-earn, and outnumber marriageable black men? Read the caption: POLYGYNY……. This is […]
