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...
Monica L. In light of a recent post, I wanted to share a refreshing story of Monica L. This beautiful, scholarly sister would not let negative messages from anyone or church affect her love, happiness and future. However Monica fully credits God for allowing her and her husband’s paths to cross. I too feel meting […]

How Much, If Anything, Do the Beneficiaries of Profits From Slavery Owe to the Descendants of Former Slaves?
Turns out Benedict Cumberbatch’s fine arse is the descendant of plantation owners who got super from owning sugar-cane producing plantation in the Caribbean. A newly appointed city commissioner in New York, Stacey Cumberbatch, told the New York Times last week that she believed British actor Benedict Cumberbatch’s fifth great-grandfather owned her ancestors on an 18th-century […]
(credit: CBS) There has been a recent uproar at the University of Minnesota because a black student was misidentified as a burglary suspect. This is alleged because the student was black. Well it most likely is true that he was misidentified because he was black. What is up with that? We all don’t look alike. But […]
OK, So You Possibly Hate (Or Love) Beyoncé’s New Album, But At Least You Now Know Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Is
She deserves the hype. And by “she,” I’m referring to Nigerian feminist author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Beyoncé’s recent eponymous album–and the woman herself–have been dissected, and hyped and argued over to death. One of the most eyebrow-raising song’s on that album was the song “***Flawless,” which had originally been released under the title “Bow Down/I […]
By “Nissa” When I was in college, I was part of a women’s circle that met once a week to discuss school, God, & men. Whenever one of us had our heart broken, we would vent during our weekly session, examine what went wrong and work on improving ourselves. Instead of calling our exes, “Mr. […]
Nobody can tell me that my frequent consumption of fresh organic produce from my kitchen garden hasn’t resulted in glowing skin. And that’s to no chemicals, it’s not glowing in a bad way. This skin is brought to you by green smoothies from my garden, every morning. My frequent updates about what I’ve already got […]
Massage your Rainbeau/Rainbeauette for Valentines Day By SirLoinDeBeef It’s a lot better than a card. Lasts longer than a box of chocolates (and isn’t fattening). You’re communicating with your hands and fingertips. Humming, whispering or staying silent. Warm oil or cocoa butter (my preference). Quiet, no talking. Lighted candles. Brandy or cognac. A hot bath […]
This is foolishness at its finest. I’m not a Real Housewives of Atlanta Fan. In fact, I’ve never watched the show other than the occasional snippet that I see when I walk into a room where someone else is browsing for something to watch or when I’m browsing for something to watch. But I do […]
I was up at the wee hours of the morning last night and saw this commercial… This is brilliant, and I wish it could be shown on the television more.
I was given permission by L. B. Kelle to share a recent experience she had. Now I know the loyal readers of BBW would have some choice words to say to anyone who dare questions why she would want/love/marry a white man. Ultimately I agree with Lillian’s final assessment but I don’t think I would have […]
