In This Version of “Rosemary’s Baby,” the Demon Seed is Hosted by an Interracial Couple.

One of my favorite 1960's movies of all time is Rosemary's Baby, a tale of financially struggling New York newlyweds whose luck inexplicably changes when they move into an apartment populated by who initially seem to be good-natured, sweet-but-nosy geriatrics. Guy, Rosemary's husband, is a … Read More...

Why I’m Using My Platform to Endorse Lenny McAllister for Congress!

It’s a big feat, and I’m hoping with all my might that my friend, Lenny McAllister will win the congressional seat that has opened since Jesse Jackson Jr. stepped down and his shenanigans have been exposed. With all the ills going on in Chicago, don’t you guys think it’s time for someone with some sort of moral compass to step up? Me too.

Monogamy Isn’t A Condom: What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You!

It isn’t enough to pretend that your being with one guy is enough to save your life and your womb. Because it’s not. Get tested often, and always use protection. Monogamy isn’t a condom.

Come Hither: Moving On After a Loss (A Very Final Conclusion)

I’m not crazy and it wasn’t a hopeful presumption on my part or a case of mistaken identity.

Puffy was running back up the block towards me; he grabbed me in a hug and twirled me in the air when we reached each other…

Rapper Lil’ Wayne discovers that there is a line in the sand–and that he crossed it when he disrespected Emmett Till

Amazing–Jesse Jackson says NOTHING about these rappers degrading black girls and women. But when “Lil Rat” insults a Civil Rights icon, he flexes his muscles. If there has EVER been a doubt about who is MORE important in “the struggle” set your minds at ease. If the answer isn’t clear by now, you just may not want to face reality.

New Study Suggests Pretty Women Have Less Casual Sex Than Less Attractive Women. Why?

Welp, here’s some new study that seems to inherently make a whole lot of sense. Just like the study that says people who eat real vegetables are healthier than people who eat McDonald fries for theirs, or people who live next to freeways have less healthy lungs than people who live in the Connecticut countryside. Sociologist Elizabeth McClintock of the University of Norte Dame released a study basically suggesting that more attractive women have less casual sex than “unattractive” women, because the less-pretty will often negotiate sex as a compromise. Her study included both men and women, but for this post I’m going to just concentrate on the women. Here’s the highlights:

Chris Dorner Burned Alive: Is This a Movie or Real Life?

Does that name sound vaguely familiar? Well, if you reside in Southern California, you probably know his name all too well. The 33-year-old SoCal resident allegedly went on a killing spree beginning two weeks ago on Super Bowl Sunday. He is reported to have killed two Irvine residents, one Riverside police man and another officer just yesterday in the Big Bear Lake area. All the while, he evaded capture by setting his own car ablaze and escaping to remote locations on foot. Sound fake? It’s not.

Swirling on Planet Earth Part 7: What is Intimacy?

I am not talking about sex, and those elements in that process of two people experiencing the physical aspects of enjoying each other as man and woman. You know, the stuff Mother Nature has in place to allow organisms to procreate. Could I make that any more dry and sound like a lecture from a Biology teacher that puts everyone to sleep? Good, if you are still reading, now I get to the interesting stuff… I am talking about intimacy, that myriad of little actions that allow you and your Boo to enjoy each other as a couple, as a unit, as ONE with whom you just kind of melt together a bit.
