I’m on a mission to get Lenon Honor as popular on You Tube as these beastly, self-hating abusers posing as “Black conscious community (BCC)” aka ‘hotep negroes.’ So who is Lenon Honor? He’s a married father of five kids, who promotes the uplifting of the black community in a way that isn’t dehumanizing of eitherRead More…
I am an unapologetic fan of the soaps. Did I mention I won’t apologize?
This is my personal opinion and does not reflect the opinion of Beyond Black & White writers or the blog owner. You have probably all heard about Charles Ramsey, the Black man who saved three Hispanic women who had been kept captive by a Hispanic man for 10 years in Cleveland. You can catch […]
Let’s face it, my attempts at online dating have been a giant fail and it became my only resource once I got too busy to try anything else. It is undoubtedly time for a new approach, so I decided to take a closer look at Matthew Hussey. (Seriously, what woman wouldn’t want a closer look at those twinkling blue eyes, that dazzling smile and totally ripped bod?
The real kind, not Mrs. Butterworth’s!!!
Just a few weeks ago, a Senate filibuster led many to believe that the gun debate had ended for good. But, I’m not so sure the gun control debate is over yet.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m THRILLED for Paige. I just wish that EVERY little black girl was cherished and protected and married off to a “perfect guy for her,” not just the daughters of rich men who are responsible for advocated a lifestyle that grants the exact opposite to “ordinary” black girls.

I was just thinking the other day about the way some Black people online complain that they want to see more of “our stories” being told in the media (yes this is a First World Problem sort of post). Well what do you mean “our stories”? Black people are not a monolith and we have many different stories.

You just can’t go anywhere these days…
I have so much to say to the people that read this blog that it gets hard to know where to start. If I told you that I had been writing to you, the person reading my words right now, since the time I began to write, would you believe me?
Online dating has allowed millions to make connections with people they may have otherwise never met. There’s a website for virtually every interest and preference so dating can be likened to shopping at the largest online matchmaking superstore.

Yes. I know. I am always writing blog posts on how to dress classically chic and I seem to, without meaning, to neglect the sporty ladies on this blog. So guess what? This post is for you.
There are two basic body types–apple and pear. Apples, like me, accumulate fat in abdomen, back and arms. The pear accumulates fat in the thighs, butt, and legs. These two separate body types need different methods to cut the fat, so you need to do a quick assessment of which type you are before you move any further into this post.
First, of all, I will just begin by saying, brown women everywhere, please stand up. Janelle Monáe is in the building.
“Much of the advice people get about their marriage problems is wrong. It sounds good. It makes sense. The problem is: it usually doesn’t work,” Fertel says. “Reconciling a broken marriage is tricky. The process is not intuitive. You really have to be careful that the advice you’re following has proved to achieve the outcome you’re looking for.”
It looks like the discussions we have had about feminism on this blog have not happened in a vacuum. The debate continues about whether many–NOT ALL–of the tenents of feminism have backfired in the new generation of men and women.
