Notice he does a perfect impression of ‘Boomquisha?’ You got to love this creative hustle. They’re making us laugh while they cash in at the bank. Good on them! AHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Being aware of the tricks and attempts at manipulation sent your way is certainly a must, but this doesn’t require you get angry or fearful. Simply side-step these persons and keep walking.

A boatload of you asked me to address the letter published in Essence.com from a black woman who alleged that her white husband called her racial slurs during sex. Many of you thought the letter was a complete fake, manufactured with every known cliche thrown at black women in order to preclude them from dating out.
Can you say racist? I don’t like to throw that word around. I really don’t. But, what other reason is there for this type of shenanigans?
Since I don’t watch ratchet reality shows, I have no idea whether or not Kenya Moore is the enemy or not, so please don’t judge me.
Lilly Pulitzer, wife of Peter Pulitzer grandson of the famous publisher Joseph Pulitzer of the Pulitzer Prize fame, was the fashion designer best known for Hobo Prep Chic style.

In honor of Women’s History Month, I wanted to profile a special swirling black woman. I could not think of a more fitting role model, outstanding leader and phenomenal woman whose official title is Vice Admiral Michelle Janine Howard, three star ranked Deputy Commander of the United States Fleet Forces Command. Having aachieved so many “firsts” for a woman, a black woman, her graduating class from the US Naval Academy (1982), and family life.

“To the single women over 40 who are reading this: Don’t give up. If you just believe that you will find someone in your life, you will. I truly believe in the power of positive thinking and positive energy. It will happen for you. And when it does, don’t run and hide from it. Meet it head on.”
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.
