Dating Scam: Low Bidding

I’ve discussed a few modern dating scams on this blog.  Low bidding is a tactic utilized by users, leeches and people with low self esteem.  (The leech can be male or female and any sexual orientation.  But I write from a heterosexual female point of view.)  They want a person (usually a woman) that isContinue reading “Dating Scam: Low Bidding”

Pro Black You Tube is a Scam

There are a lot of You Tubers that I watch that would fall under the so called Pro Black umbrella.  I think that every last one of them is a scam artist and they should not be taken seriously.  Not only should they not be seen as leaders they should be seen as scam artistsContinue reading “Pro Black You Tube is a Scam”

I Tried the Popeye’s Chicken Sandwich and I’m Speechless

I tried the Popeye’s chicken sandwich yesterday and I was floored by how bad it was.  I don’t know what to make of all the hype.  I’m not sure how it all started and I’m not sure how it snowballed into such a frenzy.  I swear I’m not trying to be a rebel.  The Popeye’sContinue reading “I Tried the Popeye’s Chicken Sandwich and I’m Speechless”

TI’s Hymen Test is Indicative of the way the World Seeks to Control Black Female Sexuality

Traditional Black Womanhood

Traditional Black womanhood is having a hard time in 2019.  It is having a hard time being heard, respected and taken seriously by anyone, even or I should say especially by other Black women.  It seems that anytime a Black woman speaks from a traditional point of view (I’m not talking politics) she is oftenContinue reading “Traditional Black Womanhood”

“The Bluest Eye” and What it Means in 2019 – Toni Morrison February 18, 1931 – August 5, 2019

Literary hero Toni Morrison died earlier this week.  Her powerful novel The Bluest Eye is what makes Ms. Morrison a legend in my eyes.  The book was released in 1970 and exposed ugly truths about Black women and self image and the effect it has on an individual’s psyche and overall well being.

The Greatest Generation

The title Greatest Generation is typically reserved for those that came of age around WWII.  For Black Americans the Greatest Generation is those who came of age during the Black Civil Rights era.  People such as Sadie Roberts-Joseph who recently lost her life to a senseless murder in Baton Rouge, LA changed the world andContinue reading “The Greatest Generation”
