Eletha Finch

Swirling in History Oscar Night!…

Eletha Finch was so gracious and humble accepting her late husband, Peter Finch’s Oscar. It is logical that the widow of an actor should accept any award in honor of her husband (or vice versa). But in 1977, race definitely was a factor in Eletha NOT being asked to accept the award on her husband’s behalf.

Not sure if you ladies are aware of the INCREDIBLE amount of non-black men lurking on this blog. Why are they here? Research and intelligence gathering, of course. Some have already dating black women in the past, some are currently dating or even married to black women, and other are here straggling along the fence. This post is for the straggling dudes. As many of you know, Jordan is my dear friend–and he knows his stuff. –Chris

Becoming Kerry Gabrielle Michelle…

Some women have “it” and some just don’t. By “it” I mean the motivation, willpower, and means to become women who everyone admires, emulates, and reveres as “the best when compared to the rest”. These are the women who respectable, successful, and admiration-worthy people of all races hold up as examples of the type of woman or Black woman they wish all Black women could be. Let’s call her “Kerry Gabrielle Michelle”.

Leona’s Love Quest Part XX- The Cost of Being Single in America…

In such a marriage and family-oriented society, I don’t see any kind of accommodations for singles happening anytime soon and black women are still marrying at the lowest rate among all groups (with the legal right) in America. Do you think it’s true that marrieds have it better than singles or is this just another case of the grass looking greener on the other side?

A Self-Proclaimed ‘DBR’ Black Woman Reaches Out To Us.…

“Admitting this openly is something that I wouldn’t normally do, but I guess I felt it had to be said openly to someone in the hopes of preventing or reducing the number of functional DBR women produced in the black community. Even though I’m only sharing my story, I’m sure there are many more instances of black women who share the same background as me.”

Why Should Black Women Be Saved? Because We Are Worth It!…

Culture has dictated for over 400 years that black women are property, of low grade and value, and are more male than female. That mindset, although it may take another 400 years, must change and that starts with you and me.
