How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
They are running out of mammies and mule to carry their water. Boo fricking-hoo. More black women are realizing that it’s not our sole responsibility to worship, uplift, and carry water for black men out of some mythical historical duty. Let the “blacklash” begin.
By immediate demand, here is your fresh OT thread…
By the way, I’m working on building a forum/message board on the blog so that you all can congregate and not worry about comment overload. However, it will cost me money. If any of you would like to contribute, you can drop a few bucks in the Paypal tip jar at email@example.com.
Now OT away!!
Another South African girl has been raped and murdered in a grisly fashion.
Two months after Anene Booysen was found raped and disemboweled, another teenager, 14-year old Thandeka Madonsela, was found after having been raped and disemboweled in the veld in Naturena, south-west of Joburg.
Here’s a warning: Ladies who are doggedly defensive about anyone ever saying anything critical about their physique might want to scroll on to the next post, because this guy is giving an honest (and somewhat raw) opinion that I’m sure is going to offend some-dang-body.
I think my blog, The New Elegant Black Woman, is all about hypergamy and becoming a high quality woman, because it feels great to be one and because it makes you attractive to high quality men. I think that a lot of Beyond Black & White and BWE articles are about hypergamy too. So what it hypergamy?
Are we all ever out of our element…. Geez. I thought I would share with you the wonderful experience with being out on the road with 18 teenagers and one other adult. Now, picture this group. 18 kids from Detroit (most of whom have never had a chance to get out of the city and go anywhere), 15 girls and 3 young men. Most of them 18 or older, only a couple are 17. One tall (she is over 6 feet), athletic (she played major college basketball), drop-dead gorgeous black woman. And me…. Creaky old gimpy-kneed white guy. Oh, for ease I will refer to my fellow chaperone as Ms. Jones.

I know that I installed the word “VET” into my vocabulary as I found myself coaching more and more women on finding suitable mates. What if someone does all the right things, asks all the right questions and still ends up with a shyster? Well, Joy Richardson, a dear friend thought she married the man of her dreams and in just two weeks it started unraveling. I would venture to say that it started before that.
April 2 was World Autism Awareness Day. I have been one re-tweeting fool over the last couple of days doing my part to get the word out. But when I retreat back into mommy-hood, I return to the -what ifs and what will happen when- thoughts relating to my own son Elyjah who is autistic. Constant joys and worries take up permanent residence in the mind of a parent who has a child with autism.
Ladies and gents, meet Linda Wood Hoyte, 70 years of age. Yep. You read that right.
I have been getting shout outs from the BB&W ladies about nail color trends. And I have put together the first list of the most feminine nail color trends this S/S 2013. But don’t worry if you don’t see a color that you like, there will be a part deux–coming soon.
Here are a few color trends that have been spotted on the runway and street that I think you ladies can definitely pull off. Make sure to take some pics if you try a few of them out.
Well the GAT-DL are at it again with their embracing of black boys as the precious and then throwing the responsibility to mammy and mule to young black girls and women. In a recent Huffington Post liberal pile of horse poop, an author named Ise Lyfe makes the argument that yes, school aged black boys are often ratchet, obsessed with expensive sneakers and speaking inappropriately about sex and seem to have absolutely no interest in their education, but…and get this, it’s NOT their fault. Worse, publicly disciplining them in front of black girls (even when they’re bad asses deserve it) diminishes them as men and future mates. It makes THE PRECIOUS look bad, and as such, puts the mythical black family at peril.
Here’s a sad tale of another woman having to learn the hard way that living together as husband and wife is not the same thing as being husband and wife.
Princeton University alumna, Susan Patton just came out publicly to say something I’ve been telling all of you since, well…since I’ve been here. Silly rabbit, go to college for the education AND the smorgasboard of potentially marriageable men you’ll find there, and to Hades with rabid feminists who are mouth-foaming at the whole idea, shaking in their boots that there’s some great conspiracy to fling women back into a 1950′s kitchen, barefoot and empregnated.
