Come Hither: Moving On After a Loss (Pt 1)…

Macho Little Black Girls Part II: Machoism Kills….No Exceptions.…

“I do strongly suspect that this behavior is a sadistic attempt to encourage black women into a mentality and lifestyle that “protects them” from being feminine little girls. Because there are too many predators in the black community who don’t see a sweet little girl. Instead, they see a wet hole just asking for it because she’s a ho anyway.”

You Can Date A White Guy….Just Remember To Stroke The Collective…

Ladies, you can live your life, live it well, and not feel there’s anything wrong with it. You deserve happiness if you seek happiness. You don’t have to prove yourself worthy of happiness. You don’t have to earn a “black woman mammy merit badge” to be happy. You don’t have to justify a desire to be taken care of nor a disgust at disgusting behaviors – your own relationship happiness does not need to meet any trifling fool’s prerequisites.

That Awkward Moment When You Tell Your Parents You Like White Boys.…

“Mom and I finally brought it out in the open. We were arguing over something and she brought up my only dating white men. She couldn’t see it at all. She grew up in the Jim Crow south and she had had a hard time at the hands of white people. While she had raised my brothers and me to be tolerant, she didn’t like the idea of us dating or marrying outside our race.”

Day Three of 28 Days of Heart Health: Everything You Did (and…

What does sugar have to do with heart health? Well, sugar consumption in the United States is ridiculously high, and manufacturers scheme by hiding sugar in just about everything thing, which leads to us consuming extra calories and spiking our blood sugar, which over time leads to obesity and insulin resistance. Insulin resistance leads to diabetes, and diabetes damages all our internal organs–especially the heart. Combine that with high blood pressure and you have the perfect recipe for a heart attack. That’s why we invited Celebrity nutrition and fitness expert JJ Virgin, Co-Host of TLC’s hit series ‘Freaky Eaters’ in her #7 New York Times best seller, The Virgin Diet to give us some frank talk about the good, bad and ugly on the sweet stuff.
