I absolutely adore MAC's Ruby Woo! Wet and Wild also has a nice red I believe the number is 918.

I admit that having fine thin hair makes it so hard for my twists to look nice (In my opinion). I will continue with my natural hair journey and hope to find a happy medium.

I am so appalled by the way the both of these ladies are being treated! I mean you would think that after enduring many years of racism the black community would be more supportive to one another. This doesn't make any sense. I am not condoning Taj Mowry's statement toward the black community, but after seeing and hearing the way his sisters are being torn down, I can understand his feeling.

Why should anyone consider his future? Did he consider it himself? Come on...actions produce repercussions (negative or positive). If his future was as bright as some are trying to portray he would have known that!  I think he is lucky....if that were my child....

I am so immune to this. I usually tell them that I stole the baby or that I found him (when referring to my son or her referring to my daughter) in front of the store and that I am looking for their parent. I get a total kick out of it! When I delivered my daughter the nurse asked "Does that white baby belong to you"?

The sound effects are classic! I also liked the 94.7 reference (my favorite station). I find that most of the stares come from Black men, middle aged black women are a close second. I once had a woman ask (in a Target restroom) if my kids were "mixed". I responded "yes they are biracial" she said "why'd you have to go there"? I just gave a blank stare. I was in such shock that she would even say such a thing. People!

You know I really don't think that you should have to stop identifying yourself as a BWE advocate publicly. You may not be accepted by certain people (whether or not they feel threatened or out- shined, I can't say). As you said your work speaks for itself. I can say for myself coming across your blog and noticing some of the commonalities that you and I have (and I am sure a lot of other women), it is encouraging and empowering to watch and read your triumphs. Please do not be apologetic to such an insignificant bunch, they obviously have issues, especially if they cannot express themselves without degrading or slandering others. You are still BWE in my eyes!

@eugeniaberg @deleted_1910844_AJ1997@Chocomusings@Christelyn to AJ's comment regarding Choco- I will say as I did last night, my mother raised me to treat everyone equally, and I do so. No race is superior to another, just because someone personally feels inferior to whomever does not lead to the conclusion that black women feel that another race is of higher standard. The conversation is so simple! We are all free to love who we choose, when another takes it upon themselves to throw out insults, then it becomes a matter of person. Are you envious? Do you have personal feelings of inferiority? I mean how do you come to the conclusion that Black Women in general have this opinion of the Caucasian race?

@Chocomusings@Christelyn I think in some ways you may be going to far! I seriously doubt that the ladies here are in any way coming down on the entire AA race. The whole discussion is based on a specific group of AA who make it a point to tear-down women who date or marry non-AA men, it has nothing to do with the AA race overall. I think every BW here knows where she "belongs", especially if she looks in the mirror on a daily. The ignorance lies in your interpretation. If you can become so offended by what you thought someone was making you personally out to be then you have issues beyond this posting!

@EliseYMason@forgetting4u I think it has become an epidemic in the sense that, people are not recognizing their true feelings of themselves, and subconsciously projecting their negative feeling/ lack of self -worth onto their off-springs, which in turn causes them to repeat this cycle.

@Toni_M@formavitae Why the inferiority? I was raised by a single mom and I must say God kept his hand on us, because she always encouraged me, nurtured and protected me and my dreams! She exposed me to any and everything she could that helped to shape me, and I never felt inferior to anyone. We all have the potential to be Great in our own right.
