I'm so sorry for your loss Niki and Christelyn.  Niki, your eyes sparkled when you spoke of Jason and you grinned when showing me his photos.  I know he will be missed.  Again, so sorry.  Praying for your comfort and healing.

@TashaLopez I hate that there are so many single mothers of children with autism.  So many men leave women with special needs.  That leaves them free to find a real man who will step up to the plate like the two men I mention in the post.  Stand up men are out there. 

I am heartbroken for your mother.  I know she is strong though if you are any indication of her parenting.  Please feel free to share a song I wrote with her.  www.autismanthem.com  Best to you and your family.

I'm not even offended by her stupid comments.  This babushka clearly has issues.  SMH

@Geekette221B You too?  OMGoodness, I got all kinds of flack for liking Shaun and Parker.  I got Tiger Beat and Teen Beat.  I did not get Soul Beat.  I was so mistreated by black kids for being dark, and then they ridiculed me when I liked white girl music.  I could not win.  I was a member of the Henry Winkler Fan Club as well as the Hardy Boys. And please don't forget The Bay City Rollers. :)

I loved this fabulous performance and know that she will get better as the show goes on.  Nene is larger than life that is for sure.  Through all the shade that is being thrown, no one can deny that Nene is a smart business woman and her people are getting her in the right places at the right time.  She has a large fan base and DWTS has a formula for selecting their guests.  So I ain't mad at Nene for getting hers and securing a financial future for her family. 

Some of you are too young to remember a street, loud, ghetto acting Queen Latifah.  But her handlers and management saw star potential.  Now you see a polished, sophisticated host and business woman who expanded her creative efforts beyond the tough, hardcore rapper exterior she started out with in the business.  Now Dana Owens has mainstream and crossover appeal as rapper, actress and singer.  The Queen Latifah show boasts a variety of celebrity guests as well as ordinary citizens making a difference in their communities.  So lets see how Nene evolves with the right management and opportunities.  I am happy that she is transforming and say give her a chance.  Her fans will not let her down and don't think she cares about naysayers or she would have long been out of the game. 


Thanks for this post @tracyreneejones!!

@Christelyn Anyone truly reading the posts here don't see hate, but truth. You can stand up to any anti BM complaint.

Bitter bm are always going to say what they want, but are they getting shows based on that hate off the ground?  Any cable networks looking for a bash bw by bm shows out there?  Are they getting major sponsorship from legit companies and advertisements?  No.  Swirlr and Chris' brand are on the rise despite these haters.  They are always going to hate.  And the fact that not only beautiful, breathtaking bw are marrying out, but dark skinned natural haired women, and those of all shapes and sizes they would never give the time of day to anyway are marrying out and they have simply started to take notice and are outraged.  As I always say, many don't want us, but they don't want anyone else to want us either.  They want us with an apartment full of their children, emotionally dependent on them, alone and unmarried because we don't deserve what white and other women deserve. That is for the most part healthy relationships and marriages living well and happy. 

My bigger issue is that bm can make these videos all day long degrading and bashing bw; saying the most vile, hateful things.  But say one bad thing about the GLBT community and you are banished from the Internet Universe.  The masses come out on the attack.  No one should be bashing anyone, but bw seem to be the least cared about group of people out there.  Not too many stepping up to stop the hate toward us.  Maybe we should be lobbying Congress to become a protected group.  Just saying......

@TheNoobie @Soul_Incites OMGoodness girl, I hope he is real quality material and remains a stand up guy.  Keep us updated on your progress.  You know the importance of vetting, but he already sounds like a true stand up man.  Others are watching and looking too when bm spew their hatred.  WM know that they don't sit around and do this to their women and are taken aback by it.  Unless they are friends with said bms and believe the hype.  I want to believe that more are like your friend.  Good job for taking the monster to task and blowing him out of the water.  And best to you in your new relationship!

@Chicago404 " I think I had a pregnancy scare 8th/9th. Luckily i didn't fall victim to that" 


I am so glad you did not fall victim either.  But I think that is way too young to be having sex.  Some of the girls in my school, 6, 7 and 8th grade had no shame about being sexually active.  I look back now and all of them had underlying issues in their homes that directly contributed to the girls being active so early.

I grew up with the threats "I'ma break your neck, or I'll lay you to rest" absolute foolishness.  I said as a child that if I ever had any children I would never say those things and I have not.  That is one reason my children can not be around Grandma without me so needless to say our visits are not frequent.  There is a consequence to growing up being beaten with belts, extension cords and other objects including hands, being threatened all the time and just mistreated.  It will have an impact once these kids become adults.  They will either accept it as normal and repeat the cycle, or may have a complex or issues with trust and or bullying, or may reject it like I did.  My sister excused those stupid threats saying that they were only said for impact.  Impact my foot.  What good is telling a child that you will break his/her neck?  What the heck kind of impact is it?  To be more terrified, or to be made to feel so bad about yourself?  My parents will never say those things to my children.

I believe you do have to discipline and a swat on the bottom or even a pinch for little kids but my teens think the world ends if they lose their tablet, computer time or television.  My parents would both be serving prison sentences for their extreme discipline meted out on my sibs and me.  You may still have to get in your child's face to remind them who is boss but spanking should stop around first grade if not before.  


This is another reason why babies having babies repeat this madness because they are still being beaten themselves.  That's all they know how to do and a poor baby doesn't even stand a chance.

@ladyofmagic1974 Could not have said it better myself.  People are oblivious to the fact that there were black woman white man marriages before, during and after slavery.  They want to always throw up rape like it happened last week.  Not to detract from that as it was the most horrific thing that many women suffered.  But there were also these unions that were by choice.  People married at great risk to themselves and offspring and livelihood.
