BB&W Intern Elizabeth’s 25 Life Lessons…

I celebrated my 25th birthday recently.  It was somewhat anticlimatic.  The height of my excitement in reaching 25 was that I could finally rent a car!  (Hey, in NYC that’s a big deal – It means I can travel more outside of this concrete jungle). Then it started…:  “Its all downhill from here!” -(My Best […]

Rest in Peace, Paul Walker…

I was stunned Saturday evening to learn of the death of actor (and BB&W favorite), Paul Walker, in a car accident. While he is most famous for his role in the Fast and Furious film franchise, I became acquainted with him (as an actor) in the late 90’s during a run of teenage films like […]

White Guy Asks, “How Do I Protect Black Women from DBR’s…

I am pleased to see that the conversations that take place on this site about the lack of respect and protection that black women face has raised the awareness of non-black men, who desire to protect us.

Weekend Read: “Letters to My Mixed Race Son”…

We talk a lot here about the importance of boys to have fathers. When I heard that my facebook friend, Frank Robinson (who is a white man married to a black woman) wrote letters to his son since 1988, I was in awe of the level of love and commitment this man had to cultivating […]

The Dumbest Reasons Offered For Why Black Women Should Stay Fat…

I have been actively working on being a smaller weight for about a year or so (inactively for a few years before that.

What Just Happened to Maria Kang is the Reason I Quit Talking About…

Infamously known as the mommy of three who had the nerve to ask America, “What’s your excuse?” offended enough fat-acceptance folks to get her banned from Facebook in which Jezebel gleefully reported. Granted, Kang seems to have went over the line this time when she scoffed at overweight lingerie models, writing that she was annoyed […]

BB&W’s First Annual “Sexiest Man of the Year”…

I got inspired to do this post because of the Adam Levine “Sexiest Man” travesty. Someone in the comments section said that we could do a better job at picking, and since Livefyre now allows us to post photos and videos, I thought, why not? Let’s do our own dang on sexy man poll. I’ll […]

Would You Date a Smoker If He Looked Like This Guy?…

Every time I see this guy on commercials, I think about how guys like the Marlboro Man just seem sexier to me. Until they breathe on me. I’m on the East Coast and my visit to New York to see the Rockettes yesterday reminded me how many people still smoke traditional cigarettes despite all the […]

The details are sketchy, but it looks like some 20-year-old miscreant shot and killed a white guy with a black girlfriend. We don’t yet know the reason for the attack, but am I wrong to guess that it might have had something to do with this jackass having a problem with who his girlfriend was? […]
