This is going to be GREAT! Can't wait to see it!
3 hours, 12 minutes ago on Have You Seen the Adorable “Annie” Trailer Starring the Amazing Quvenzhané Wallis? Yes; Little Black Girls are Worth Saving.
This was a LONG article and it was good all the way to the end! There were so many things that resonated with me but the overall message is, " until a woman truly believes she is WORTHY and a PRIZE to be WON, she will accept anything." Once you WAKE up and say, "why should I have to "bring it" and he only has to bring the thing swinging between his legs? NOPE, not me, either sister. I HEAR you and it's so sad that there are MORE woman than not, still paying for the affections of a man and "Waiting/HOPING" that one day he will wake up and turn into a REAL man and treat her right. Instead of waiting, GET OUT,, and seek GREENER pastures elsewhere! Life's TOO SHORT!

@Jamila thanks for reminding us NOT to respond, I was about to go the heck off! I think my blood pressure just shot through the roof!!!! I'll never understand why if people HATE this site SO much would they spend time reading the content and responding to supporters. It's the epitome of dysfunction! SO SAD!
2 months ago on While Gabrielle Union Cries in Her Soup, Eve Celebrates Her Engagement, But Will There Soon Be News of Random Babies?!
@Swirlgirl28 @UnlimitedBeauty Although I love Tamara/Tia(not sure who played Melanie) I stopped watching that show when Melaine had to constantly degrade herself to be with that man he NEVER treated her with respect.
@Tammy_Ghalden my thoughts exactly, no one seems to be talking about him having unprotected sex and potentially endangering the life of Gabrielle, she could have HIV, that's so sad and to me proves that Dwayne has no regard for her well-being, health, or reputation
@ncatina @itsgoodtobeme I too hail from Philly and know that area VERY well; not an easy place to come of age. The odds were most certainly against Eve from the start, but she seemed to always be striving for more. Most people don't know that she started out as a stripper and then moved into rapping; that was an amazing accomplishment to be at one moment looked on as only a sex object by men and then to successfully be thought of as one of their peers. Amazing! I liked her then, but I REALY like her now.
Also, I am a true believer of "when you see better you DO better" and Eve knew what type of man would treat her like a lady and NOT a ride-or-die chick. Her haters are just jealous and can't believe her man can see her as anything soft and worthy of protecting AND respecting. Way to go EVE!
@EboniOngel I just finished a Doctorate program and sadly there were 3 BM out of 32 participants; #1 BM was married to a BW and indiscreetly cheating on his wife with SEVERAL women at work. ( I just found out he was fired for sexual harassment); #2 BM was a COMPLETE ASS and openly hostile and verbally disrespectful to the other 5 BW in the group often putting them/us down in favor of WW. He also spoke very NASTY about his Black baby-mama; #3 was a preacher. I sadly discovered first-hand that it's not about education or intelligence, it's ALWAYS about CHARACTER.
7 months ago on Iyanla Vanzant: "There is no reason to continue to have children with men who don't honor us."
@LorMarie @BWC I think the point you may be missing is that Iyanla's desired focus is BW. As a BW, she obviously feels most drawn to BW and their plights. Yes, you are right, this message could be for ALL women who engage in shameful behavior but I think Iyanla just focused on who she felt most drawn to: BW. I definitely don't think it was a racial slur or even a consideration.
@BWC @LorMarie Exactly LorMarie. No part of the message was defeated; she calls it like she sees it. And believe me, "messing with somebody's husband" is such a prevalent problem in the BC as BW feel compelled to fight for any BM EVEN BM already involved with other BW or married!!! It's just a fact in the lives of BW today.
WOW! I've always liked Ms. Vanzant, but I think she has REALLY come into her spiritual self these past couple of years. Although she is not an ordained minister, I consider her to be a modern-day missionary, taking her message out into the world and sharing it with any BW that will listen. Yes, what she said WAS scandalous to me because of the fact she felt so COMPELLED to say it! This message is an old one on sites like this but mainstream BW need to hear it! It's not just women like us, on this site, that think and feel this way, it's also Iyanla, a reputable BW preaching the same message! Amen! Iyanla. WELL DONE!
@futureshock Yes, VERY creepy! This paragraph alone gives us an insight into the self-worth of the writer?? So Sad.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on This is one of the Reasons So Many White Guys Think Black Women are Off Limits.
I agree. It's SO SAD that BW even still have this view in 2013. It's like BW KNOW and have been told over and over again that there is a poison out there killing the spirits of BW, leaving them UNMARRIED and ALONE and struggling to survive and provide ALL ON THEIR OWN, leaving their children without fathers, and they STILL, armed with the knowledge of all that information, STILL WILLINGLY CHOOSE THE POISON?????!!!!! BM feel NO allegiance to BW, AT ALL, why would any BW in her right mind still look to BM for anything and EXCLUDE all other worthy mean on the planet? It's seems the epitome of self-destructive behavior and most certainly LOW self-worth.
And, I'm SO tired of people saying, "BUT, ALL BM aren't like that." Okay, maybe not ALL but certainly the majority of BM have not embraced, uplifted, PROTECTED, cherished, loved or EVEN respect BW in so many years, why then are BW still holding onto the dream? Why are BW so willing to drink the poison knowing all well what the outcome will be???
@Karla Thanks Karla!
7 months, 2 weeks ago on My New Obsession...Expensive Lingerie
@EnJay @Karla Thanks! I will!
@Karla Karla, can you provide this newbie with some of your favorite brands! I was just in Paris, sadly I missed out on my hand-made nighties by the nuns; maybe on a return trip. :) I'm looking for this to quickly become my new very expensive hobby
Wow! Like you Chris, I thought Victoria Secret was the best and when I became dissatisfied with their quality I all but gave up on lingerie! Okay, about to try something new...I have heard of Agent Provocateur, perhaps that will prove to be a good introduction to "Next Level Nighties!" My hubby-to-be thanks you!
You GO GIRL!!! Happy Birthday Chris! You look beautiful inside and out as your spirit shines through for all to see. Thanks again for ALL that you do and I'm EAGERLY looking forward to the next 40 years. ENJOY!
