OK I am seeing the same thing.  I thought it was all in my head. I do not beleive I have celiac (although my mom has it.) But I see a distinct change if I eat wheat products.


I am going to start a trial today and see what happens.

Lest we forget that black women are often strangers in a strange land......and we also have to deal with our fellow skin-folks.........get the kids off to school, the house picked up, the shopping done, dog to the vet and dinner on the table on time.

Chris I know that you did not want to cover this. It's like this scene below in the Godfather:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPw-3e_pzqU



The Huff Post article came across to me like the rest of the folks now tuning into a program that we watched years ago. They are just now catching it on reruns.  Think about it.  This site had been around how long?  Black women empowerment bloggers began posting their thoughts since when?


Gonna be honest on this one.  Elegance's one month (or longer) experiment idea is looking awfully good to me at this point.  You know what?  I really think it would be a sucess too. I realize that black women are all along the spectrum when it comes to working out the toxic experiences that they have had with far too many black men and to much of the BC.  That said most of us here have crossed those rough seas, landed on much more welcoming shores, crossed the beach and are heading inland.  We are being greeted by the men and women who have preceded us and are now participating in building the campsite. We are building a stronger community for the other voyagers who will arrive wanting a fuller life on her own terms. 


So while the incandescent bulbs are finally clicking on for many black women we will shine our Acandescent™ ones and keep it moving forward.

If you do head wraps you may want to look into Pashmina scarves.  I use the cheapo ones since I have hair and they keep me plenty warm.  You may want to spend a little more and get the real wool ones.  They are still light weight but will keep your head toasty.

A trick I learned years ago. Coat yourself with a thin layer of Vaseline before you get dressed to go out. I used to do that when waiting for those early morning buses.  Works great.

Fair enough. It is obviously that you have had a string of bad luck when it comes to meeting and dating white men. It is like the ones that you have met confirm the belief that white men are only interested in one thing and are not at all serious about forming a committed relationship with a black women. 


Fortunately many women on this site have had a very different experience which may be why some of us really did not sweat Savage's post and saw it as a hoot. 


Men and women come to this site with a wide variation of romantic experiences and no article is one size fits all. If we wanted to be daring I guess we could do a series of articles about casual sexual encounters between black women and white men.  I know that they do occur, are consensual and gratifying to both parties. 


BW/WM relationships run the gambit so I for one will not take something like that off the table now that the idea is out there. It may be of interest to some to explore this aspect of the BW/WM dynamic.   Who knows.

"Is this going to be the first of many articles by white men who like to have casual, uncommitted sex with only black women after they marry a white woman? "


Quite honestly it never occurred to us to run a series of articles like the one you have suggested so I can safely say no, this is not.  What this is is one man's opinion expressed in the most entertaining way.


Oh BTW why the assumption that Savage, or any other divorced white guy is sexing every black women he takes out or wants to sex every black women he takes out?

Why did you jump there?

Don't feel bad.  We are already doing that. Check out some of the selections that we have posted over the past few weeks.


What is nice is that the authors themselves are writing content just  for us here at BB&W and several have posted on the site to engage this community directly.


They are doing their part so lets do ours and make them welcome by checking out what they have to offer, comment and possibly make a purchase.

Top 10 Reasons Why Corporate Social Media is Not Your Friend, and Dark Social Media Is


"If someone hostile to your politics, your business or your person lodges a spurious complaint to Facebook, or Yahoo, Google or YouTube, say, that you're an anti-Semetic copyright-violating whistle blowing vegan child molester, what these providers generally do is simply cut your account off without notice. Their terms of service often relieve them of the bother of even sharing the exact nature of the complaint against you let alone investigating it, and explicitly state that “your” lists are really theirs. I know people who've lost thousands of business contacts and years of content in Yahoo and Google email accounts, lists and YouTube contents this way"
