How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
The cassata siciliana consists of round sponge cake moistened with fruit juices or liqueur and layered with ricotta cheese, candied peel, and a chocolate or vanilla filling similar to cannoli cream. It is covered with a shell of marzipan, pink and green pastel colored icing, and decorative designs.
At the annual World Economic Forum(WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, Lisa Witter, a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum noticed a trend: Men seemed to be much more interested in workplace flexibility than they had been in past year’s meetings.
I have observed behaviors in black women, self included, that made me think of the Kübler-Ross model or “Five Stages of Grief”. Many black women have been forced to confront the utter hatred and contempt that black people have for black women. When they see this hatred and the related dysfunction called out, they will respond differently based on whatever “stage” they go to when faced with such an unpleasant situation.
And unlike the (now infamous) poll about black women having a better physical self image than their white counterparts despite the fact that 80% of us are technically overweight, this poll is based not on delusion, but reality.
Single mothers are raising losers, according to a new study.
Spring is here and it is the perfect time for those lovely weekend getaways before it gets too balmy out. Maybe you will take a drive down the coast if you live near one. Or a weekend in the country. Whatever your idea of a getaway is, here are a few pieces I “threw” together to inspire your daydreams.
Wasn’t it Voltaire who said “Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good?” Lately I have been wondering if I need to take Voltaire’s advice when it comes to my quest for love.
I normally wouldn’t do this, but I think this post is a perfect piggy back to Brenda55′s post about what this blog ever discusses black men. Interesting that a sorry, loser, bottom-feeding internet troll and stalker of mine has recently started nicknaming me “nappy head.” I find this hilarious, because not only is this man utterly disgusting to look at, he is also black. With nappy hair. And these fools wonder why so many black women are throwing up deuces.
After the overwhelming response from the previous post , I decided to pick the brains of some men and collected their thoughts and feelings about their marriage relationships. Before I share those quotes I want to share some information from a book I used in my research called “For Women only: what you need to know about the inner lives of men” by Shaunti Feldhahn. She conducted a series of surveys asking men about
their private lives. (Don’t worry ladies, this book was published in the last few years, not 1955) She uncovered some very interesting insights. I will share some here. (She interviewed 100 men to collect this data.)

A timballo is an Italian molded dish, typically of pasta or rice, with a filling of meat or vegetables. Although there are many versions of timballo Siciliano, it’s typically a pasta dish containing eggplant, similar to Greek moussaka. The name timballo (like the French timbale) derives from an ancient percussion instrument, the drum or tympanum, so by analogy, a cylindrical mold. It probably began with Middle Eastern or Mediterranean meat-filled pies.
Inevitably, anytime the children receive media attention, questions are often raised about the paternity of Paris and Prince, as they are fair skinned with fairly straight textured hair. Insinuations occur…
There are only two ways to be sure that a woman wants to have sex with you: 1) She says “yes, I want to have sex with you,” or some similarly worded statement, or 2) you initiate sexual contact with a woman and she enthusiastically responds to your advances with physical advances of her own. I wish that I didn’t have to define what “consent” to sexual contact means in this day and age, but the latest high-profile rape trial in Steubenville, Ohio makes it patently obvious that rape culture is still alive and well.
I came across this post shared by a member of a private group I belong to on Facebook. She was seeking our thoughts on the issue and I had to chime in. Spare the Kids is a blog run by Dr. Stacy Patton, dedicated to provided black parents and families alternatives to corporal punishment. A white man wrote in to seek advice about his black wife’s family over the issue of spanking. Their differences have led to heated discussions as her family is are determined to do it no matter what he says.
Let’s see how this one goes over… Here is a definition of prejudice from an online dictionary: A (1) : preconceived judgment or opinion (2) : an adverse opinion or leaning formed without just grounds or before sufficient knowledge. B : an instance of such judgment or opinion. C : an irrational attitude of hostility directed against an [...]
I want EVERYONE girl and woman on BB&W to look and feel beautiful. We’ve been talking a lot about that lately. What makes BB&W so different for anywhere else on the web is that we truly care and uplift each other. Write to me briefly about a story you’d like to share with our readership about how you transformed a low self-image around in a healthy and practical way, and I’ll give the best commenter with the most LIKES some goodies from brow geniuses, Anastasia Beverly Hills!
