400 Pound Woman Makes Easy Target for Rupert Murdoch…

But, and this is just me thinking out loud, with black women leading the pack in obesity in America, we just make it too damn easy for men like Rupert to take shots at us. We walk right into those stereotypes, Doritos and Twinkies in hand. And…AND…she’s 32, walking with a cane. Three-TWO. She is way too young to be that big, I don’t care if she is just five inches shy of seven feet tall.

Why Do Some Black Women Reject Self-Improvement?…

  I’ll warn you right now that this will sound harsh but I hope that you can hear the caring message I’m trying to send. I think Black women can do better and be better because we are much better than the world and many of us believe! We need to stop having low standards […]

Day Two of the Curly Twist-Out…

Yesterday I sported curly twists and was happy with Day One, but was concerned with how it would look after I’d slept in “the mushroom cloud” all night. Surprisingly, it looked pretty good. But I decided to twist the first 1/4 of my head, pin behind the ears, and let the rest stay loose. I sprayed a little water and shea butter on that part, and here’s how it came out:

Regarding Broomhilda: Was she worth being rescued and why was she…

Quentin Tarantino’s new film Django: Unchained has stirred a lot of different thoughts, feelings, opinions and emotions in people; about slavery, Django killing so many white people on screen, gun control, etc. but the feedback I found the most interesting was some of the commentary regarding the Broomhilda character played by Kerry Washington from black women. I want to address three questions/comments that are a conglomeration of the multitude of comments regarding this key character.
