Lesson: Black Chicks Need to Know When Non-Black Men are Hitting on Them!

I continue to be amazed about how many young girls really are clueless about dating. This isn’t anything to be ashamed about–this is easily fixed. Just sort of perplexing that in a world where there so many modes of artificial communication, we’re becoming less and less about to pick up on face-to-face body language cues. […]

Video: Singer Dencia Says on Camera, “White Means Pure.”

Ugh. Every time I hear this woman talk I like her less. Not only is she snappy and catty, that ridiculous blond wig and balloon boobs speaks for themselves. Girl probably prays every night that she’ll wake up and be Kim Kardashian.

Recognize Yourself? Five Signs You Are An Angry Black Woman

By Elaine Flowers, BB&W guest writer We could use this time to go over all of the good reasons why black women should be angry, but I have always lived by the mantra: a problem defined, is a problem half solved. We know there is a large demographic of black women who are angry—let’s forget […]


BYOP: Save Money at the Spa By Bringing Your Own Products!

BYOP = Bring Your Own Products A day at the spa can be spectacularly relaxing, and spectacularly expensive. A one-hour massage can cost you nearly $200. A body scrub with those fancy showers starts at about $85. Facial? $150, easy. But the spa need not be reserved by rich and desperate housewives if you’re smart […]


Black Chicks All Look Alike…I Guess…

This is kind of inane news, but at the time I thought it was funny. Watch this FOX sports correspondent mistake a random NASCAR fan as Donna Summer. You know, the singer that died two years ago. Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames. NASCAR Legend Michael Waltrip — Pumped About Meeting Donna Summer … […]


Video: Okay I’ve Had Enough! Black Parents, You’re Not Superior for Beating the Snot Out of Your Kids!

This is the second video I’ve seen this week displaying a black mother displaying UTTER CONTEMPT for her daughter. Watch if you dare. I am so sick and tired of the black community bragging about how they beat their kids while white parents just “talk” to theirs. But I have to ask, HOW IS THIS […]

Shocking: Do We Support Child Brides Or Child Sexual Abuse?

Many in the world were horrified to hear of an 8 year old Yemeni bride named Rawan who died on her wedding night.  The poor little baby’s body was abused to the point of internal bleeding that caused her death.  That was too much for most of us to imagine as we look around at our […]
