@Tammy_Ghalden @Karla Yep. From what I understand, BW have naturally "rounder" behinds which doesn't equal having a "fat" behind. I have cousins from Nigeria who are nice and slim and they have round table top behinds and hourglass figures that would put some women to shame! They're fit and have "round" behinds. my behind is rounder, but not like my cousins and my younger sister has a flat behind. It doesn't matter whether she's bigger or smaller in her weight, her butt will always be flat, but when her weight it up, her butt does get wide, which is what I see in a lot of women who are overweight.

@ColetteASmith He's so cute! I'm really digging him too! I watch Sleepy Hollow every week, religiously. This week's episode was awesome. I sense a real love triangle coming on. Just not with Ichabod.
Oh squeal!!! These guys are making me swoon. Henry Cavill is on the tippity top of my list now. He is so hot! He's handsome. Damn handsome. Not pretty, which I like. Oh yum. If I were single, he could not only get it, he could keep it! Where's my husband?!?! I need to vent. It doesn't matter what makes you hungry, as long as you come home to eat!
@Tammy_Ghalden He actually did drag his feet on civil rights legislation. He along with LBJ voted against the 1957 civil rights bill that was being pushed by Eisenhower and the members of his party.

Yes, I just had my green smoothie this morning. My husband and I make them and it's the only way I can get my youngest to have any vegetables or fresh fruits. I always use it as an accompaniment to a meal or a snack, but not as a meal replacement because I know that fresh fruits and veggies will go through you quickly and then you'll be starving. Great advice!

@phillychick I must agree. Not only is this in response to the New First Lady of NYC, this is also in response to the recent shows like Sleepy Hollow and Almost Human that are featuring BW in a positive light. I just saw a commercial on Youtube the other day that had a BW and WM singing to each other and they gave a kiss at the end. Very cute and very in your face. I'm one of those who found the love of my life on the internet and I had lots of responses from non-BM when I was online even without a picture! When I allowed the non-BM to see my photo, they were stumbling all over themselves to get a date with me, so the whole "unattractive BW" myth is just that. You just have to shrug that mess off and live your life. That's pretty much what I'm doing. And what a wonderful life it is! :)

@ElegantAngelButterfly You know the saying about "if you tell a lie enough times, it eventually becomes the truth" (I'm paraphrasing). These turds think that if they keep on telling the same lie over and over again that eventually people will listen to their idiocy and it will become true.
Aw!!! I love Francesca! She's beautiful and funny. I'm so happy for her and her new husband. :)

@TamekiaThomas I don't know if you have a faith, but there are some faith-based sites out there with men not looking for loose women. Also, opening the field to men outside of Michigan may yield better results. You can extend your search up into Canada and Canadian men are very nice! They're North Americans, but without too much of the racial baggage that comes with guys from the U.S. (Someone correct me if I'm wrong)

I met my husband online. It was eHarmony and the funny thing is that after I signed up and paid for six months, I met my husband two weeks later. I was also talking to a very attractive WM who was two years my junior. He needed a little time to grow up though. He was really fixated on being sexual. He even asked me if I had a "ghetto booty" at which point I was not very interested. My husband spoke to me on a person to person level. Like, we spoke about the books we read, our respective faiths and how they shaped us and our experiences in them, our love of the outdoors, what we wanted out of a relationship. He was treating me like a woman and not like a Black person who happened to be a woman. Big difference. We've been married just over 8 years and have been together for 9 1/2 years.
I would say that I always encourage BW to get out of the box when dating and I give them directions like, go online, frequent more diverse areas, and the like. I try not to talk about improving social habits and graces because of the way I speak. It will come across as condescending and a bit snob-like because of my very flat accent and manner of speaking. I don't wish to offend. I do tell BW who want to listen that there are men all around you if you open your eyes.
@Brenda55 I don't know about anybody else, but being a princess in Africa depends on what country you're from. I'm only half and back in my father's country, I'm a princess and member of one of the founding families of our tribe. It really doesn't mean much unless you're there. It may not even mean that you're rich or anything. That's what my experience has been.

Interesting. I remember this guy. I also think that their story would make for good reality television, though I don't really engage in watching such programing unless it involves cooking. Theirs is a very unique story and just goes to show you that sometimes you just don't know where you'll end up. Congratulations to the couple and I will pray for their safety and happiness.
1 month, 1 week ago on Redemption: Formerly-Ranked Aryan Brotherhood Member Begins Family With Black Woman
Of course I will be watching this movie. I remember the painting of Dido with her cousin Elizabeth when I was doing a little bit of personal research on people of African descent in Europe. I was fascinated with her story and yes there is a happy ending. Though she married "beneath her" given her position, she married a man who loved her and had three children. She died quite young (age 43), but I can say that for a woman born under her circumstances, it was a life well lived. A bit of a charmed life if you will. Her mother was an African woman in the West Indies. I believe that if Dido's father didn't love her mother or his child, he would not have brought her to his uncle the Earl of Mansfield to be raised as a lady and recognized child of his. No, she didn't get to sit "at table" with the family most of the time and most especially when they had company, but that was due just as much to her illegitimacy as it was due to her race. Even more so because she was born OOW at a time when it was a serious blemish on the reputation of a family or young lady to be born OOW at the time. Anyways, I hope we will all get out and support this movie. I think that it's telling a good story that 20 years ago would not have been pursued due to the IR tones all over the place with an African woman and then with her Biracial daughter.

Speaking of privilege, I think we all should check out this new period drama, "Belle". It's about a young girl who is the daughter of a British aristocrat and a BW from the US. He brings her home to be raised by his family and finds that she is caught in a very interesting situation where she is privileged in one sense and not so in another. It's supposedly based on a true story. I am definitely going to watch this...

I agree with Chris! Look, you'll have no problem meeting WM with similar interests. Especially the engineer types (my husband is an engineer and many of the BW I know who are married to WM have engineer husbands). Just saying...
