How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
I’ve been getting this question a lot lately: “Chris! Your hair is so thick and healthy looking! What are you doing?!” Like my curls? I have to thank Philip B for them. Just purchased the Philip B Curly hair styling kit from Gilt.com at a discount (normally this line with wacky crazy expensive) [...]
So apparently Jennifer Hudson’s guy, and baby daddy (anyone notice they’ve been engaged for about 100 years?) says he thinks Jennifer needs to dial back on Jenny Craig. Here’s the skinny:
“Hi, I’m a 19 years old and I’m very interesting in swirling I have had interest in white guys before but never really made an attempt at dating them because I figured they don’t date black girls, but right now I have a predicament I really like this guy I think he likes me but some of the black boys tell me that he is just trying to be nice that white guys don’t like black girls, and my brother knows I like this guy and he told me if I date a white guy he is going to disown me I just don’t know what to do. Thank you for listening.”
This post is a bit tricky because it deals with the issue of intersectionality. I strongly suggest people read up on the term and who is impacted. I say this because intersectionality is something that smacks black women upside the head from many angles depending on who they are, and how many different levels of privilege work for or against them.
Forget about “What The Cuss?!” file this story under “OMG Seriously?? GTFOOH!!”
One prominent blogger has concluded that, because I made two short comments recently, on a couple of blogs, that were in poor taste, and because she kicked me off her blog four years ago, that I am the stealthiest of stealth concern trolls, spending years gaining you all’s trust so that I can pursue my true an agenda of “pissing on BW’s heads”. Then she uses me as an example of someone who has been improperly allowed to be a supposed ally due poor vetting by BW.
President Barack Obama gave the commencement speech at the only all male historically black institution of higher education in the United States, Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA. President Obama could have made his speech about anything he wanted, but he choose to make a call to personal responsibility the foundation of the speech, which says a lot to those who are bothering to pay attention.
I’m totally over the moon! You regulars remember ‘Young Teach,’ the really cute music teacher from Tennessee who had recently acted upon his desire to date black women. So he started a blog, “Adventures of Swirl Man,” and bought “Swirling,” and read it in two days. He was a contributor here for a while, and [...]
It’s on thing for you to have unpopular rude thoughts running through your head; it’s quite another thing entirely to let those thoughts escape through your mouth and into the waiting embrace of a journalist’s microphone. Michael Jeffries, CEO of Abercrombie and Fitch (we’ll see how much longer he can keep his position), thought no one was paying attention when he let some of his ideas escape through his mouth, and now he and the company he leads are suffering due to his indiscretions.
It would seem that you ladies are so NOT feeling the sporty trend. I can dig it. It is good to know your audience and I am happy to find that most of you are vintage souls. This will make it that much easier for me to create looks and posts for you.
Kerry Washington’s role as Olivia Pope on the ABC hit Scandal is seriously causing her star to rise and she is finally getting the major media attention she deserves. Ms. Washington landed her first cover of a major fashion magazine when she snagged the cover story for the June 2013 issue of Elle Magazine.
After reading this, no should should be complaining about how hard it is to swirl…
Although I’m a single woman who isn’t focused on getting dates at the moment–but that could change at any second, because really, who knows when The One ™ will come calling–I still love to read the dating stories of other women, especially black women.
