As Much as I Love Christian Bale, I WON’T Be Watching…

…And neither should you. Hollywood has a looooong history of white-washing biblical stories that originated on or around the continent of Africa, so much so that Egyptian history is part of the Western History curriculum.

Asian Men…I’m Getting To a Certain Point Where I’m…

There’s no doubt that people of color are constantly jockeying for the spot as model minority status in this country, but no such group strives as such more than Asian people. I have a tremendous amount of respect for their discipline, self-sacrifice, and unity. But it’s that unity that I believe can be a major stumbling […]

Ok we made our voices heard  about Elizabeth Lauton’s disrespectful criticism of the President’s daughters, but if we do not address the even more disrespectful attitude of pro athlete Darnell Donner towards Malia Obama and men like him, we are acting in hypocrisy.  Now he is not the originator of the photo of Malia going down some […]

Gifts for the Nerd In Your Life……

Men may be simple creatures, but they’re sometimes the hardest to buy for. And depending on your guy’s disposition, the old standby shirt and tie might lead to grounds for relationship counseling.

I have been struggling with the news about Bill Cosby allegedly slipping white women bennies and having nonconsensual sex with them, and I keep not wanted to believe it.

I’ve watched in horror as story after story of news that another prominent African woman is embroiled in some skin-lightening scandal.

Day Four of Urban Decay’s Vice 3 Palette: “Purple…

Purple is my favorite color. It’s so rich and royal, isn’t it? Problem is, there’s about 100 shades of purple, and not all of them mesh with my yellow undertones.
