Ladies, Have you heard of this alternative to regular lipstick?
This is one of my favorite posts from you. Thank you. Congrats to the happy couple.

I am really happy for you. I remember one time I made a comment about me meeting Mr. Right one day and your response to me was very positive. I wish you and your husband many blessings. Thank you for sharing this awesome news with us. Bless you.

@Brenda55 "Does it lay with the subjects of the show for existing and being willing to open their life up for public scrutiny?"
I'm looking at ALL of the parents involved. Yes, I think the network sees a gold mine as to capitalize off of them, but I don't hold them responsible for the decisons and actions of all parents involved. From watching the clip I get more of an "exhibit" and "glorification" feel verses "we are trying to correct this" verses anything else. So I will say the issue lays with the subjects of the show.
Two more things....
I hope the children (A.K.A next generation) won't repeat this.
I don't want the younger generation to become desensitized and begin to normalize, glorify and duplicate this lifestyle.

@uninterracial "I couldn't even finish the video because the ignorance was overwhelming."
I felt the SAME way. On another blog they were comparing it to SisterWives. So what! Sisterwives don't make this right either.
Someone please explain to me how this became normalized. I mean, I know how, but dang.
Happy holidays everyone. Thank you Christelyn and everyone for your contributions. I've learned a lot this year.

Power questions at its finest. Nice!
11 months, 3 weeks ago on Why Are These Bitter Chicks Hating On Michael Ealy Because He Married a Non-Black Woman? Oh. I Know.
I just left a message on the General Manager's answering machine. I did let him know that I lived outside of Louisiana so he can know or be reminded that this story has national attention. Keeping my fingers crossed. Personally, I don't know Ms. Lee, but I feel like I HAD TO speak on her behalf. This is deep on so many levels. It really hit home.

@reem11 " I do feel she will get her job back. Many times it takes something like this to happen to bring about change."
Reem 11, I agree I feel as though she may get her job back too. The question is does she want to go back to THAT station lol? Hopefully, a bigger station or a promotion can come out of this if she wants it. I believe that whats meant for bad can be flipped into good by God.
@Christelyn @Suburban Soulgirl I agree with you Christelyn about Bakersfield. I will say that I lived in Irvine (Orange County) for two years and just moved to the Los Angeles area due to LA having "more singles." Irvine...no I would say much of Orange County is family oriented. I've learned thats where I'm to go AFTER I get married. To GET married I should stay in LA County. Hope this helps.

@Brenda55 Thank you Brenda55!
I think I would feel better about it if it were on Centric or TvOne. BET has already done enough for my mind. I can't even.. no."
I feel the same way. You took the words right out of my mouth. Thats like mixing apples with oranges.

@PamelaFoster "Why in the world is this"Demetria" so concerned with one black woman's preference when you have literally hundreds of rappers, entertainers, athletes, politicians, and actors that you could ask this very question? "
Its done to keep Michelle and other BW in place. Its like she is "telling" on them so mama and daddy, (BM and BW who don't like BW dating interracially can "get them".

@Joyce345 Joyce thank you for the refresher. This part of Halima's post got me
"White supremacy says, “When you come outside your house, you will know that I reign supreme,” While racio-misogyny opens the door and says “Come in and put yourself above the women in here”.
This is a sickeness that requires several couches and clipboards.
Don't know how this will be taken, but perhaps (if you have the skill) marketing yourself as a hairdresser specializing in mixed or biracial children hair types, can bring in income too."
I just reread my post and would like to clarify the above paragraph. I see a lot of biracial kids with unkept hair and that may be due to thier mothers (usually nonBW) not knowing how to do their hair. This may be a possiblity for you, especially if you can make house visits. Just wanted to clarify. Thx.

@JuneBug277 @tch "I can't due to financial and other reasons but once I fix myself up better I will be heading to a far better place to live."
JuneBug 227, we may not know when your finances will be "fixed". With this said perhaps there is a way to FLEE. Often on cragislist I see a husband and wife renting out their spare bedroom (in very well to do neighborhoods) to two female roommates, usually college students. EAch girl will have a separate bed (twin beds I think), but they share the same room. The price is usually $250-$300 here in Southern California. Renting out guest homes and living room COUCHES are popular in the Los Angeles area. Don't know where you live honey, but I hope you FLEE.
I've seen posts that say "rent for free in exchange to assist elderly or disabled person with house work" What zip code do you think this targets?
For extra cash perhaps you can participate in paid focus groups.
What gifts and talents do you have? For starters, I've seen people make earrings and they sell like crazy. Perhaps doing this and marketing them OUTSIDE of the hood may work for you. Craigs list can be a good source as I have had some good experiences. Perhaps teaching a class in something you are good and and marketing it around college campuses OUTSIDE of the hood is an idea.
Don't know how this will be taken, but perhaps (if you have the skill) marketing yourself as a hairdresser specializing in mixed or biracial children hair types, can bring in income too.
Starting a cleaning business in areas OUTSIDE the hood is a traditional option as well.
Oh, one more thing, I don't know how old you are but did you know you can get hired as a professional travel companion or travel chaperon? PTCs are people who assist disabled people, senior citizens, medical patients, etc... as they fly around the world. They will pay for your flight and expenses through the company you join with. Your job is to assist them (wheelchair, or whatever) during their visit.Take a look.
I hope this helps in someway honey. I hate for you to be in that living situation. Much love.

Thank you! I was going to address this, but you did well as usual lol.
