I didn’t like the short film, “Nappily Ever After.” I didn’t appreciate the title and I didn’t like the idea that it perpetuated the agenda that natural hair is bad. It was just silly to me and way too predictable. I understand it was trying to teach women to like their natural hair, but I did not like how they went about conveying their message. It was one of those movies where I was screaming like I would in ridiculous scary movies when all they had to do was run.
I was raped when I was three years old. I never said a word because I didn’t know I was supposed to or how to say something. I kept it to myself for almost a decade until I was almost adopted. But guess what happened when I spoke my truths? The statutes of limitations in Indiana of 7 years did not allow prosecution to occur. I have always wondered how these other women have been able to come forward and have justice for their rape events, but not everyone else.
I’ve been wanting to write about cheating for a long time, but fall victim to procrastination. To be honest, I wanted to write about it during the whole Jay-Z and Beyonce Lemonade scandal, but didn’t. Every time a new story is hot, I wait too long to write about it, but the sad part is, there’s always another story; you know like Tristan Thompson, Kevin Hart and Donald Trump Jr. to name a few. Simply put, cheating is one of the worst things you can ever do to your partner.
A lot of people share their relationships with me and confide in me for advice. Often when I hear them explain their problems, I notice common themes surrounding their arguments. Communication is huge in relationships. But I’m starting to realize a lot of people think communication is delimited to explaining how you feel to someone. Although it’s important to express your feelings and emotions in relationships, we must understand that they aren’t tangible and are nothing more than figments of our imagination. The communication we should have is why those
Because it does. It is the very fabric that has woven humankind together in America. Regardless of how you feel about race relations and think they disappeared right along with Jim Crow laws, you are wrong. Race is still a very underrated systematic problem that has been wreaking havoc on minorities in America for centuries. Did you know that race was first used to separate White people from everyone else as the ultimate race? And this wasn’t just a Black and White thing; Asians, Hispanics, Mexicans and Jews were lynched
The problem isn’t race at all. The problem is that dark skinned folks still refer to themselves as Black people. All persons of color have been stamped with this derogatory term for hundreds of years now and we have delimited ourselves to a color. I have come to the conclusion that the moment we find out our true ancestry and get rid of the term Black people, we will be so much better off. Every time I read a post online, I notice this debate about how black someone is.
Okay, I’m sick of this sh*t. This blog will walk you through a journey of a Black woman who is fed up with trump and those he has brought back to the surface to complete their mission of wreaking havoc on minorities in America. The Source of my Anger I have been on the writing edge ever since the Charlottesville terrorists had the opportunity to rally “peacefully” while killing and beating innocent protesters and toting guns in front of our beloved police officers. The news media was sickening as I
Sometimes I wonder how people would respond if Obama was in Trump’s predicament right now. I mean seriously. Could you imagine how ridiculous people would act if Obama was under federal investigation for allegedly obstructing justice and colluding with the Russians? Not just any country, but Russia who has sanctions on them from the US and the UN. Wasn’t this the same guy who trashed Hillary for being under investigation? Not only are you now under investigation, but it occurred while you were serving as the President of the United
I get so annoyed with how sexist our nation is. I have read two articles this week about the oversexualizing of women’s clothing. One article was about a school note calling girls thots for wearing “revealing” clothing and stating they are distractions to boy’s learning environments. And the second was about a picture Jessica Simpson posted of her 5 year old daughter wearing a bikini. I’m just like seriously, why is this even an issue? The fact that someone thinks it’s even an arguable statement to say that women’s clothing
The next time someone asks me what I’m mixed with by the looks of my hair and skin, I’m going to tell them I’m 74% African and 21% European. My Negus, I made it. To be quite frank, I’m 44% Nigerian. I just received my DNA results. After my high school and facebook acquaintance posted her results, I knew it was time to order my DNA kit. It was quite easy to do too. You order it, provide a saliva sample, ship it and wait for your results to be
