Issa Ray Pisses off the Religious Innanets With…

I adore satire, when done right, it causes equal parts confusion and introspection. In my opinion, the best statements are those done with a grain of salt dug into an festering wound. The Black community and the consumer at large is becoming more critical of what passes as Rap Music these days. The rap pioneers […]

Review: The SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills…For A Taste of ‘New…

The Hubster and I decided that we’d spend the weekend in his old haunt, Beverly Hills, for his birthday last weekend and decided to throw caution to the credit card and stay at the five-star SLS Hotel, and I’m soooo glad I did, because I saw more celebrities in one afternoon than I had in […]

Did This Little Girl Lose Her Crown Because She Looks Black?…

Beautiful little Jakiyah McKoy was probably over the moon when she won the Little Miss Hispanic Delaware title. In a cruel twist of fate, it was snatched away from her. Why? Apparently, there were “people” who complained that she doesn’t look like a Latina because she’s black. Latinos come in all colors except black, right? Like […]

Of Gold-Diggers, Womb-Guardians, And Why Black Women Got Their Own…

If you never in your life want to hear a black woman either go off about why “she don’t need a man” or why it’s perfectly reasonable to settle for a broke felon going nowhere in life, perhaps we should retire the word GOLD DIGGER. Just let it die. Because many people have no idea […]

Pimps Up! Hoes Down…. Breaking Down The Trickery of Powerless…

A mind can be a terrible thing to waste and I’m aware that not everybody’s mind is built for social combat. I’m fortunate to have had a father around to school me properly on men. It is by his example that I was prompted to give the screw face to most of the poor excuses […]

Sometimes you have those weeks where there’s just so much WTF news you can’t cover it all.

This is a style using 100% WEN products. The folks at WEN sent me a good chunk of their line to review and I was super excited because I’ve heard of the stuff for about 100 years now, but it’s not widely available in stores and I’m never up late enough to order from those […]
