I won't believe it until there is an actual full-on baby bump (she is too skinny to hide it) or she confirms it, which she will not do.  As far as I'm concerned she is a shining newlywed.

I was a gymnast for almost a decade, so I follow USA Gymnastics like no tomorrow.  But Ive never found Danell to be attractive.  His body is exquisite as all gymnasts are, but if you want male gymnast candy...  I strongly you suggest you go back to the 90s, where you will find Chainey Umphrey (a brotha), Blaine Wilson (USA GYM WILD CHILD AND GORGEOUS, John Rothlisberger or my absolute favorite never getting old beyond beautiful Russian gymnast Alexei Nemov beautifully nicknamed "SEXY ALEXEI".  This brings back memories, I want a post about him actually :) Maybe I'll write it.

I had stopped watching B&B and all daytime soaps when Rick's mom slept and married Rick's father, 2 uncles, and then her son-in law whom all she had children with.  Too must incest crap., but I always had a little crush on Rick.  Happy to see him go after a black woman, but no I don't like him running to another vagina after a friggin kiss.

 @Good Uh, Most African Americans have 15% European heritage.  Just because you are light-skinned does not mean you are of mixed heritage. 

 

In the modelling world, "international", means GLOBAL appeal, which is usually dominated by a European phenotype and she was trying to appeal to that stereotype.  No one is objecting to her identification as black, but rather the foolish idea that dark skin does not have a global "international appeal," Ie Naomi, Alek, IMAN.  

 

If I had children by a white man, the child would be both black and white, therefore he will need a positive white male role model in his life (his father) and a positive black male role model ( i.e. a good friend of ours that is trustworthy).  There would be no i'm one or the other.

First off, she is not fair skinner.  I know sisters who are literally pale and identify as African-American and international has more to do with culture and nationality.  WTH was she thinking?  2nd of all thank you for writing this black women come from so many different cultures, nations, ethnicities and SHADES for that matter. How ridiculous to do that and in front of NAOMI CAMPBELL (who is Afro-English, and effin AMAZING as hell)  (I hope she brought her cell phone for that mess of cray cray)?

Forgive me because I have yet to read all the comment (which I will), but have you check out any "womanist" reading?  Womanism is the AA Female answer to Feminism.  If you're interested, check out "Sisters in the Wilderness.  It's an old book, but a good read.  I did some undergraduate research on womanism and it confirmed a lot of things that you are saying and how black females were and are shut out of the feminist movement and cannot identify with it.

Beautiful article! Many AAs are oblivious to the fact that the African Diaspora actually placed MORE people of African descent in the Carribean and South America than in North America. My family is Afro-Spaniard, but I wasn't raised in the culture so I mainly identify as AA, but I have many Afro-Spaniard and Afro-Latino/a friends, and they range in color. So the experience of colorism in the Caribbean and South American regions is VERY alive and well and many Afro-Communities are written off as you say and segregated esp in Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico. Its CRAZY! I worked at the UN from 2010-2011 so I knew the Int'l Year Declaration, but many were unaware and to be quite honest it did feel as the Committee for that did not put enough force or PR behind it. It felt more like a "for show" thing, which happens a lot at the UN. But we definitely really need to put more care into Afro-Latino communities. There is a movement amongst Afro-Latinos in the states (no matter their color, but more so the dark-skinned women) to identify. Shakira (NOT AFRO-LATINA) has recently worked with President Obama to bring to light the situation with Afro-Colombian children. The new (comic-book animated) spider-man is Afro-Latino as well. So culture is slowly catching up to knowledge of this situation.

 @SirLoinDeBeef As a history buff and human rights activist, yes I know about many of these histories.  BUT since I wrote the post as an AA female, I had to write from the perspective of an AA female, and the legacy of American slavery of Black people is the closest to my life experience other than my knowledge of Judeo-Christian history and also being of Native American descent.

 

"But, no, when slavery is mentioned, it is always the evil white man vs. the black man/woman and it's legacy, to the current day and moment."  It was not and will never be my intention to write about that (the evil white man).  EVIL COMES IN ALL COLORS AND I'VE SEEN IT FIRST HAND.

 

However,I am HIGHLY interested in what effect the history and legacy of slavery plays in the American dynamic and since I choose to date interracially how that will affect any future relationships.  Its curiosity simply on my part, but it seems there is some anger there, so please don't in any way feel that this is an attack on the American white male.  If it isn't clear by now, I LOVE WHITE MEN!

Thank you!  My mother used that same quote while waiting for her African King to be a good Christian submissive wife too.  Yep, marriage showed her a different reality.

 

You're right yoke actually means burden.  The church has twisted it to mean along the lines of this soulmate since birth kind of thing like fairytale meant for each other.  To be equally yoked actually means to be equally "burdened." Along the lines of your passion for certain areas of life and each to other drew you together and you can't face them without each other. 

 

Yep there has been so much manipulation with that quote makes me sick!!!

 @AshleyFisher And many Arabs in the region technically have Jewish roots.  I apologize if that offends anyone, but global Jewry only is comprised of 2 of the tribes of Israel.  10 tribes are running around unaware of their heritage and many of them are in that region.

Actually Palestine or Palestinians have never been given a state and that is where most the conflicts has been heated.  The Palestinian Authority does have a voice at the UN, but doesn't have the power of a State, like Israel.  Theirs (PA) is more comparable to that of the Holy See at the moment.

 @MissFLondon   Regardless, name-calling is unacceptable in any sphere.  If we are to expect Ken to be a better man, we should also expect Law to be a better man and maintain the higher ground.  Golden rule:  Treat others the way you want to be treated.  I don't believe regardless of his character that Law would want to be treated to the same name-calling.  Which I see no one has done to him.  I think that shows the improvement of the black women in this sphere.
