@jdependance I like all kinds of rainbeaus because it's so hard to choose from all the good looking men, BUT I have a very LARGE sweet spot reserved for Asian men of all stripes- Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Taiwanese, Vietnamese, Indonesian, Samoans (although they are more Pacific Islanders, but whatever) etc. -the list goes on and on. I also love learning about different Asian cultures and languages.
I love Asian men! Don't be shy about it, you are not alone!

Actually...I honestly think I might be able to sing it better (or, at the very least, just as well). "
In front of millions of people...on the national mall...on inauguration day...in 30 degree weather... standing next to Obama....and Biden....and Michelle Obama....and in front of a camera broadcasted to the entire world?!
Damn girl! I wish had your confidence, I would make all my evil mastermind dreams come true and take over the world! Muahahaha!
I don't doubt you can sing. Maybe you can actually sing better than Beyonce, but nobody here has made a stunningly successful career out of it as she has.
I mean come on people. Give credit where credit is due and leave it at that!

IKR. I liked Beyonce's performance. She did fine. People seem to forget that the band she was singing to ALSO lip-played. Is that a word? haha. Anyway, their instruments were prerecorded and they pretended to play.
The first family was so beautiful and dignified.
Of course people are going to draw comparisons between MLK and Obama. They are both Black.
People have little imagination.

I totally disagree with the Jezebel post, but it was an opinion piece for "F*ck You Week" so it in NO WAY represents the main view of feminist or the most full or honest view of the ranges of modern feminist thinking on breastfeeding.
So all the anger and disgust in the comments below (I do share them) are directed at somebody venting some gripe they have in an opinion piece on a blog looking for hits.

@Sunshine789 @Jamila @Christelyn "An out-of-wedlock pregnancy can destroy the lives of many black women, while a white woman will have resources to fall back on. A white woman can be promiscuous and make it "work" for her persona (in some instances, and only on some levels), but a black woman is more likely to face harsher social penalties for it."
I have only seen one clip from the show Girls. It showed some white girl high on crack and the funny part of the scene was suppose to be that she though she was smoking weed, but it was really crack and when she figured this out she said, "don't let my mom find out."
I was dumbfounded...Then again, I don't watch much American TV anymore, none-the-less cable...
Your tumblr is really nice Elegance. Love seeing all the beautiful ladies. Thanks for sharing. :)

This is awesome.
A few months ago I saw an ad for National Grid, (electric company in NYC) at their main headquarters no less, with an interracial family- a white man with his black wife and he was carrying their daughter on his shoulders. They were all smiling and laughing. I was so happy to see it.

@tmluvsfashion Me too! It's over a minute and a half long. It's like a music video :D
@Neecy I agree with so much of this!
There is definitely a range of stylistic femininity.
I think as long as you dress in a way that highlights your best physical qualities, then what matters is your character, your attitude, and how you carry yourself as far as projecting a feminine attitude. If a woman is dressed to the nines in a dress and heels, but drunk off of cocktails and cursing then her clothes will do nothing to project femininity.
@Lexi88 "Women shouldn't play hard to get, you must be hard to get. "
Exactly! Have conviction and be sincere.

This movie should not have been made. It is too soon after the events happened. Some of the direct consequences of these events are still in progress and we just don't know about them.
This entire endeavor is problematic and blurs the line between entertainment/art and real life events in the present.
**However "accurate" the film's producers claim it to be or innocuous the film seems, make no mistake, it is slick 21st century propaganda.**
What else could a theatrical film (not a documentary, not a news piece) about an on-going war and on-going covert operations be? Really? Let's not be naive. Let's not go easy on ourselves because it's too hard, or complicated, or not fun to do differently than just swallow wholeheartedly all the "entertaining" crap Hollywood dishes out. Instead, let's BE CONSCIOUS and think about it. Otherwise we might as well be filing into the theaters in the 1940s. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Allied_propaganda_films_of_World_War_II#United_States
A documentary is ok. (Even that, given it's timing, could be propaganda, but at least a documentary doesn't present itself as fictive and so it can be critically challenged for being inaccurate, illogical, misleading etc.)
A news program about the events is fine.
Theatrical movie. Umm, NO.
NO war propaganda thank you very much.
(And for the record, I supported the American government's hunt for Bin Laden and agree that it was within our nation's interest to pursue him and kill him (and other proven terrorist), even if I did not always agree with the methods used, ie. drone attacks.)

@reem11 @ImaniScully Women are sometimes vulnerable and sometimes strong. Men are sometimes vulnerable and sometimes strong. It depends on the situation and the person and even their age. It's not all one or the other.

Peter Norton and his wife Gwen look like a lovely couple who are happy people. They look very compatible. They kind of look like each other, which is something I think happy couples tend to do.
Haha! Maybe I'm aiming too low and should try to get myself a billionaire :D
I would love to know how these couples met (the non celebrity ones!) as I find it difficult to let average rainbeaus know I am interested non-the-less the billionaire ones...

1 year, 2 months ago on An Open Letter to Black Women Who Don't Think Feminism Is For Them
The problem with these kind of pro or against feminism stances is that there is no given definition of feminism to be for or against.
If you've taken women's studies classes or have studied feminism then you know there are many different schools of thought and that they often have opposite or very different viewpoints. There are so many branches and they change all the time. Feminism was once a movement, but in my mind, in 21st century America, it is more a philosophy or a belief one can hold and use to influence their actions. Philosophies grow and change and can be influenced by the writings of others and that is what has happened to feminism. I find it is more of an activist movement in places where there are less basic rights for women.
Saying I am pro or against feminism tells you very little about what a person believes or doesn't believe about the rights of women and their place in society. We have to be more specific.
