Who watched? What are you thoughts? I’m a registered Independent, so I try to keep an open mind. But there were a few things that gave me pause–what’s up with all the “God” rhetoric? Now don’t get me wrong, I’m spiritual and believe in God. But the constant peppering of the deity felt more likeRead More…
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.
On Thursday, the President called Kamala Harris “good-looking.” Was an apology necessary?
I’ve got to say I did not see this coming. TMZ reported less than an hour ago that Halle Berry is pregnant…again. This time with The Squinter’s offspring.

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.
Lit in the afternoon…
Our resident chef says a mouthful…
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.
R.K. Bryant reached out to BB&W because she is an unsure, up and coming author of erotica who observed our penchant for essays on the weekend. Here’s Part One of a story she’s working on. Feel free to give her input.
Sometimes the words don’t fit in my mouth, and so I throw them at people instead. But I’ve recently had to ask myself, ‘Why fucking bother….?”
We needed to lighten up the mood so I thought I would present some swirls in the animal world. It seems that animals are getting along better than humans these days. The law of the Jungle is all they have. No Supreme Court to implement or overturn anything. They just do what they do. Check out some swirls!
Although America was ready for a black Bachelorette, The ABC Bachelorette franchise passed on a grand opportunity to select Dr. Misee Harris who was poised to be the first. Oh well, its their loss. Dr. Harris launched a social media campaign that took her on a whirlwind tour of television and radio talk shows and a myriad of magazine and blog interviews. On the way to becoming a super reality (and actual) star, this beautiful dentist inspired many Americans and garnered some 50,000 Facebook and Twitter fans to cheer her on. As well, Dr. Harris got some hate mail but she always kept it real without breaking a sweat.
It’s been suggested that we release “marriage” from government, give it entirely & symbolically over to religious institutions, and use civil unions under law for all couples gay and straight. I would love to live in that world. Perfectly logical. Hell to implement.”Marriage” is an understood concept universally, even by it’s strongest critics. With thousands of years of history predating all the major religions and implemented planet-wide (with varying standards), what it means doesn’t have to be explained, and expectations in law and society are quite stable. Full faith and credit amongst the states, and almost perfect cross-border recognition between countries.
Many people on the side for gay marriage summon the ghosts of Lovings Vs. Virginia, the poster children of interracial marriage. My question is this: is it a fair comparison?
