Are you as sick of this week’s national headlines as I am? Thought so. Have at it ladies and gents. Weekend plans. Date night. Favorite foods. Travel plans. Entertainment. Hair, nails and make-up. Hobbies. You name it. Good news only. No drama.
Amidst all of the hustle and bustle of of Congress’ jumbled talk about gun policy, the black community is yet reminded of the dire consequences associated with untamed gun violence. Since Newtown, the city of Chicago has seen 50 deaths at the hands of gunmen. One of those deaths was the last surviving child of a woman named Shirley Chambers. Her 33-year-old son, Ronnie Chambers (picture right below), was killed while sitting in a parked car.
Hear some real, compassionate talk from a former gastric bypass patient.
Have you ever had these faulty ideas when you started your health and fitness regimen?
Is Israel practicing the same type of racist eugenics done against them during Germany’s Nazi regime?
Speaking of shaming…
And guess why they’re doing that? Because to some degree, SHAME WORKS.
I just stood there in front of my DVD player and television, spellbound. Dressed for practice, and short on time, I nonetheless had to pause for a minute to take it all in, DVD case still dangling in hand.
Just how much are you willing to take on?
Mornings can be really tough on me. Sometimes I wake up with shoulder pain, lower back aches and knee pain. Since I’ve not had any injuries, I’m guessing these aches and pains are from localized inflammation and general strain. My dad had knee problems and needed surgery in his lifetime. Since I’m not a fan of bionic joints, I am determined to get to the source of my morning pain and then work to find a long-term solution that won’t require me filling out prescriptions and loading my liver with ibuprofen. Enter my local farmer’s market health-food guru, Colin. I told him about my morning aches and lethargy and he suggested the MSM Morning Mix.
I’m often the predator, but a young girl couldn’t walk around being plump and juicy without coming to learn about the dreaded neighborhood phenomena known as the DIRTY OLD MAN.
The new season of the STARZ’ show Spartacus: War Of The Damned debuted last night, and it was everything that Spartacus fans have come to expect: Sex, blood, guts, fight scenes, and gorgeous men galore. And, a few not so gorgeous men made an appearance too, but you can look past that.
What women do with their privates is no one else’s business and it doesn’t harm anyone as long as the sex is consensual and safe right? I disagree. I think some people are oblivious to the fact that there are sexual norms (it’s intro social psychology and sociology). Sometimes these people even propose that “anything sexual is normal as long as it’s consensual”. They don’t realize that they are establishing the new sexual norm of ‘anything goes and everything is okay’ and that there is something ‘abnormal’ about you if you think otherwise.
Frankly, I am tired of talking about Quentin Tarantino’s film, Django Unchained. But, here I am, talking about it again. Why you ask? Well, because the brilliant minds behind the events of the January 19th “Gun Appreciation Day” are working on innovative ways to reach out to communities of color. And, Larry Ward, current president of conservative leaning media company Political Media, has been working feverishly to aid this cause. So, what brilliant motto did he come with? “What would Django do?” For the record, yes. This is real.
Make no mistake…this is a stealth form of abuse.
Things I have recurring dreams about: 1) That Loyola Marymount University has called and told me they granted my diploma by mistake–I needed to take one more math class and they forgot to tell me. ( I HATE math); 2) I have just moved into a house so big we keep discovering new rooms; 3) That I’m being chased, in a blue nightgown, down the stairs of Kaiser Hospital by the Sesame Street monsters.
How many of you are *hiding* your interracial dating preference?
The Pentagon wants to allow women on the front-lines of combat. But, do the ends justify the means?
Have you ever been “catfished”?
An apology is a bit much. Let’s hope Spike Lee isn’t holding his breath waiting for one…
