@caligirl94117 Hold up hold up.  I posted this on my Facebook page and a sister named Sheila proclaims that she knows Rose.  Sheila is a black American woman also married to a Serb and lives in Serbia.  So American sisters are also representing.  That was fab comment to see!

Good try troll.  Show me your blog where you are praising sisters and uplifting them instead of tearing down and criticizing and I may half way kind of believe you.  If you are real, even with all your black loving women bm friends, you are still few and far in between.   I smell some NOI at work but I could be wrong.

That is why I decided to concentrate more on my Google Plus for Swirling and Marriage. I am horrified that Facebook can do this after all the hard work you put in building your fan base, sharing stories and pics and everything.  So shameful and heartbreaking.  But on the other hand, look at this outpouring of love and support you have.  Awesome!!!!!!

@Brenda55 Thanks Lady B for mentioning the other two legged predators.  I fear them more than the police which is why my son can't go anywhere unsupervised.  Walking prey for evil.  I am so glad your brothers made it to be seniors.  Even with your close calls, praise God!

@Fae Quince With more and more pressure from Downs Syndrome and Autism advocacy groups the police have had to deal with this and public relations is important though they have a long long way to go.  I do see that many PD's will try to put something in place but sometimes circumstances won't account for any amount of training when rogues will be rogues.

@crich42 You may have to become proactive in your son's case.  I suggest making a call to the local PD in your area and arranging a meeting with the community relations to find out what they are doing.  Discuss your concerns for your son who will be with you so they can SEE him and be on notice.  They should be more than happy to tell/show you what they are doing to address your concerns and what groups they are working with if any.  If they are not, then you have a chance to foster some program or relations between the police and autism orgs in your area.  


I think Chicago actually has a program for the special needs community.  I think Fairfax County Virginia has something in place for elopers.

Miss Watts could have still told the story had she shown her ID. Most likely it would not have escalated. And she could have outed the officers and the harassment. This could happen to any of us anywhere at anytime.  I would just handover my license/id and protest later.  With social media, the word would get out about my treatment.  A camera phone running is even better and legal.

I agree with lots of the sentiment here. Unfortunately we, black women are 73 + oow childbirth in this country. Who can we blame for these kinds of ads? I am outraged at the fact that our communities are full of single black mothers who are choosing this for themselves and innocent babies. I can't get mad at an ad that tells the truth even if it doesn't apply to me. There is lots of outrage at this ad and I cringe at it too honestly. But truth is truth. No Wedding No Womb. All this outrage would be better suited mentoring a young teen and showing her a better way. I don't like this but again we have contributed to these kinds of ads.  This probably was an oversight that won't be made again, at least by this company. 

When ads start to show single ww with their biracial babies, the country will be outraged and programs will come out of the woodwork to stop the oow births in ww. Then black women will benefit too. But until then, we can try and stop the behavior but a whole lot of work needs to be done as many black girls are programed from almost birth that they are not worthy of marriage and repeat this cycle 4 generations sometimes.  The ad is not fair, but it represents the truth in our communities. It is what it is.

@Savannah18121 I wonder how many of those bms spouting off about Cooper's four children have that many or more with different women and not paying a dime of support for any of them?  Trash and trash talk makes good ratings and page hits.  Meaningless Eve and progressive forward thinking women.  I say let them keep talking.  The First Amendment allows us all that right.  But it doesn't say the words have to mean anything, just the right to say it. lol

It is not uncommon as I coach many women who are virgins of varying ages.  Not hard to believe at all and I am an advocate of no sex before marriage.  I like his advice to the young lady and I am glad you posted the call.

@Brenda55 It will be a while yet.  Cali has no reciprocity for anything and no Magistrate system here so I am back to square one if I want a legal career.  I am still looking for what I want to do when I grow up. lol  So congrats on being able to retire so young.  Time for you to get your book published girl.  Just pick a topic and I'm sure you can make it relatable to the masses.  Swirling, Nursing, Audiology, Mating habits of Bees, Securities and Exchange in the Czech Republic, The Education System in Malta etc. Just pic one of these or a myriad of others, write your book and I'll enjoy the read. :)

@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.
