Have You Seen the Adorable “Annie” Trailer Starring the Amazing Quvenzhané Wallis? Yes; Little Black Girls are Worth Saving
March 7, 2014 Filed Under: Entertainment
"Annie" was one of my most-loved movies of all time. I introduced my children to it and it's a pleasure we share together. I must admit I wasn't sure what to expect from Quvenzhané Wallis taking over the role as Annie, but from the looks of it, she's fit in just fine. There's a few … Read More...
Oxblood made its debut on the runways last fall season to much accolades and applause. We love this moody rich, yet vibrant cousin of burgundy and I have a feeling that it is here to stay. Here are a few nail polishes that you should try to introduce yourself to your dark gothic side.
Take a look at how some middle-aged black woman made an attempt to brainwash Jamila’s daughter!
I have loved black women since I have had the know-how of sexual preference. Which if we are all honest with ourselves was at a very young age. I remember my mother bought the VHS of “How Stella Got Her Grove Back”, and she would watch it all the time. I finally asked, “why do you like this movie so much?” her response, “I love Taye Diggs”. This was the first time it occurred to me that people of color could be sexually attractive. You can imagine once I allowed myself to make that connection, my natural sexual preferences were unleashed and would never be held back again.
The Black blogospere is up in arms again because someone outside of the “black collective” has the nerve to comment on our abysmal 80% out-of-wedlock rate. It seems that no one will ever be “qualified” enough–not black enough, no “down” enough, not poor enough, pure enough, sympathetic enough, whatever enough–to just come out and call a spade a spade.
Everybody wants six pack abs and arms as strong as Linda Hamilton’s from the Terminators 1 & 2. Is this ok? Or, can we consider this another body image disorder alongside anorexia and other image issues that both men and women face?
For those of you who enjoy theater arts and poetry I thought you may find this young woman worthy of your time and attention. Dominique Fishback is a creative powerhouse. At age 22 she has already accomplished goals that seasoned performers dream of — touring nationally performing her poetry, making appearances on national television and […]
I believe I found BB&W shortly after it launched. At that time, I was in a really, really bad place. Poor dating decisions had taken a serious toll on my emotional health, which was causing my physical health to decline. I was recovering when I started reading the site. Every couple of weeks or so, there’d be articles on dating, vetting, standards, etc, which helped reinforce the decisions I’d already committed to, for self-preservation. Every time the notion of settling crept into my mind, a horror Question of the Week would pop up and I’d thank God for the growth I’d made.
Many of us fight against the curse of Jezebel, as she casts such dark shadows upon black women who desperately want to be preceived as more than just the objects of a man’s sexual release. Then there’s the sex-hating Madonna…
I have lived in some beautiful cities most of which were great swirling cities within the US and visited several outside of our borders. I would like to share a few based on my personal experience as part of a swirl marriage.
A few months ago I tried to counsel a young woman in her mid-twenties who told me she wanted me help getting away from a man who is a textbook sociopath. I underwent Hurculean efforts to get her away from him–offering to help her buy a plane ticket and stay in my home, countless phone calls and texting and coaching. But in the end, the bad guy won, and this woman, once again, ran back into this man’s arms, knowing full well his history of multiple failed relationships, multiple felonies and spotty work history. I needed to find out why.
Personally I’m not buying it. The album OR his latest tantrum. Chris thinks he’s being demonized for one incident, but I assure you it’s not just that one.
