I live in NY. I am pretty eclectic and open to everything and, always have been.
@Statuesque OK. I thought it was just me. I definitely think that she is attention seeking and also very judgmental. I haven't watched her show too often. But, she had sisters on once. I just thought she was being unnecessarily nasty. For lack of a better word. That attitude might be better directed at 34 kids and DMX. But now that I hear what you have to say, it kind of sheds some light.

@Statuesque LOL! Please share your thoughts on Iyanla. I loved her first book over a decade ago. Now that she has a show. I just don't know...
I didn't watch. I couldn't. Can Iyanla fix this person? From friends that did watch, I heard that he is disrespectful to his mother and seemingly blames her for his problems. That is the start of his problem, I'm guessing? Then I heard some of his harem came out in part 2. Things like this should be discussed. But, I never thought BB&W focused too much on "Black Issues".

@Tempaccount Oh Lord! Thankfully that hasn't happened to me. Even without a pic, I'm sure you are pretty and the insecurities came out. Honestly, it's typically a woman with something you wouldn't look at in a million years getting crazy. Every so often when I am out with my boyfriend I'll get grilled by a Black man with a White women. It's very confusing. It's almost like they are saying "I can do it. You can't." with their eyes.

@Brenda55 So, BB&W isn't their thing. That's OK. The thing that makes me angry is that the same people will say things like Christelyn "hates" Black men (without even really reading, listening, or comprehending what she's saying.) Then, a couple of pages down there is someone spewing vitriol about Black women and that remains untouched? I can't even imagine the frustration you ladies go through.

@BeautyIAM Sigh... I have no words.
OK. Now that more facts are coming out, my earlier anger has dissipated. They were having sex in the car? I also heard the audio... I don't know. I wasn't there. But if they were engaging in lewd behavior and then she started ranting, it's questionable.

Wait, someone "called in" a Black woman making out with a White man? Is that a crime? Oh. I forgot. It is. I hadn't heard that before. I thought the officer saw them and came to his own conclusions.
I am a recovering product junkie. This list still kind of made me want to run out and buy. I own about 7 of the items on the list. I've tried 2 others. I am curious about the Moroccanoil. I would also like to try the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor oil products. But, I have to wait until some of the products I already own are gone. At least, that's what a recovering product junkie should do...

@International_Responder I know. I almost didn't respond. Because I didn't know if the comment was... Serious? Two Black women might not have the same experience in relationships with WM. So, I don't understand the comparison being made to a WW/BM relationship. Funny thing is, I am a person that likes to remain as positive as possible. It comes back to you. But, good vibes doesn't envelope people and make their ignorance go away.

John Taylor... I guess I was so busy looking at him that I didn't realize Roger Taylor is giving me a Ralph Macchioesque vibe. Ralph Macchio was probably my first celeb crush. New Moon On Monday is my song.
@Lili2009 When I was transitioning, my hair would get tangled just for funsies. It gets easier dealing with the two textures.
@MelissaCritchley I'm sorry. I am not sure who your response was for. But, how can expecting racism and ignorance actually make someone experience it? I never in a million years expected it. But, it happens. All. The. Time. Sometimes you have to look through a different lens to get the full picture. I live in NYC and have never been to Minnesota. But, I have no doubt that whoever you were responding to has experienced whatever it is she said she did.
@Keioni That's what I always thought. Honestly, it depends on where we are. Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn are where we have the most problems. Mostly we laugh it off. I refuse to entertain people like that. I had to explain to my boyfriend that responding to them is exactly what they want. Once in a while I comment on the fact that if my boyfriend was not in the picture, I wouldn't be with whoever is opening his mouth at the moment.
3 months, 1 week ago on “Im a Negro Bed Wench,” and Other Things I Learned Since Marrying My Husband
@Keioni It depends. The bulk of the disrespect comes from Black men. Every once in a while Black women will give a look. Sometimes they smile. White men and women will cast a disapproving look once in a blue moon. But Black men??? Ohemgee! Looks,comments, I get "Come back to us beautiful." You name it, they do it. They are testing my boyfriend. They act like he's not there. One day (I hope I'm wrong) it may become physical. Do you live in an area that is diverse?
@Keioni Yes. At least it does to me. I live in NY. So, you figure so many people, nationalities, cultures... No. I have never been called a Negro Bed Wench. At least not yet. Or an Uncle Tom. There are other, disrespectful things that happen.
@Brenda55 Your whole comment was gold. BUT when I read "If people only knew how stupid they appear throwing that they would stop it once and for all." I almost snorted my coffee. I may have to put you in the same category as Chicago404... Do not read comments while eating and drinking!

@sparel @MayaBee @melissamak007 @lumiereleclaire I've been to different parts of Cali a few times. I don't think you should be scared to go. I saw that video (which turned my stomach). But honestly I think that could happen anywhere. A male friend of mine (who is Black and a police officer himself) was recently profiled. All he was doing was getting into a cab after coming from the gym.
@MayaBee @melissamak007 @lumiereleclaire Vibrant colors do typically look good on darker skin tones. Yellow looks great on me. Orange, just doesn't.
@lumiereleclaire @melissamak007 You're welcome! I deal with all types of ignorance when I go out with my boyfriend. So, it's nice to hear that you don't have to anymore. I love yellow. But orange would not look as good on me as it does on you.
@lumiereleclaire Happy that you are in a place that is accepting... Or at least people mind their business. That orange is your color.

My hair doesn't like Miss Jessie's either. I think HeyFranHey said once that Miss Jessie's doesn't do much for what they want to charge you. And Cantu charges too little because some of their products are filled with bad things. LadyHumor, I don't blame you.

I read the book years ago. When I saw that a movie was being made... The book was pretty steamy. I didn't see how. I like Sharon Leal, the actress playing her. The character in the book was, well I won't give anything away. Addicted was a really good book though.
@annyjay400 Coilier is a word!! It is a very good feeling to be able to do your hair yourself and not be a slave to your hair stylist.
Bougie Black Girl was talking about the same thing yesterday, or the day before. She had two pics of two women side by side. One had maybe 3a/b type hair, the other had 4b/c. They both did a 3 strand twist out. One had 10,375 likes.The other, had 3,796 likes. I don't think anyone needs to guess who was who. They both had beautiful hair. I follow natural hair bloggers and vloggers with all different hair types. My hair has been in it's natural state long enough for me to know what works. I follow HeyFranHey. Our hair type is nothing alike. Do I want mine to look like hers? No. I love my hair. There are too many people out there that don't realize if they don't love themselves, no one else will. It has to come from within.
P.S. The title of this post killed me!
@International_Responder I did go. I think, it's primarily to celebrate the Lovings and their union. Their case was such a landmark. The Loving Day celebration is for couples, and singles of all races. Eating, drinking, and mingling. There were also a few tables set up with information about the Loving Day organization and other things.

@cjdimplez @melissamak007 OK. So Texas is way too far for me to dry and drag you out somewhere! I'm not a natural hair blogger. Just a junky like you! LOL. I am still trying to master my hair. I subscribe to a bunch of different naturals. Some with hair like mine, some not. Is your hair fine like HeyFranHey? Check her our if you haven't already. Also Quest For the Perfect Curl and Naptural85 have pretty good videos. I think the summer is a good time to start trying to get out there. There are always a lot of things to do.
