Why Do Some Black Women Consider Marriage “The Enemy”?…

Ever wonder why these women get so mad? It’s because the topic of black women in loving relationships where they are married and thriving is like a dog and a dog whistle: You don’t hear what’s so bad or painful, but they do. Oh do they ever. And they will let you know.

Whitney Mitchell & boyfriend Garrett

Swirling, Young, Beautiful and Disabled?…

In light of the wonderful discussion prompted by a QOTW that stumped our wise one, I could not help think of the first person who followed me on Tumbler. Meet Whitney Mitchell. Whitney is a phenomenal young woman who touches everyone she meets. You are drawn to her bubbly personality, positive demeanor and beautiful smile. You hardly notice that Whitney is a quadruple amputee at all. Her condition does not define her and she thrives in spite of it. In fact Whitney is more determined than ever to be the dancer she always dreamed of being. Whitney is in constant company of people who love and adore her — family, friends and strangers alike are inspired by her winning attitude and refusal to be defeated. I don’t detect bitterness due to a medical misdiagnosis causing her condition.
