@Dandelion100 @MsLoupe @DJD2013 Wholeheartedly agree. Most white American names have Biblical (Hebrew) origins, yet the people bearing these names are not ethnically Jewish. I kind of like that we have some originality, and you don't have ten kids in the classroom all answering to the same first name.
3 weeks, 1 day ago on WTF?! People GLEEFUL Over Our Negative News…Plus a Sobering Acknowledgement.
Thank you so much Christelyn. There can never be a shortage of these kinds of uplifting messages for black women and girls to hear. I also champion online dating for black women interested in non-black men, because people it takes away so much of the pressure vs. a guy approaching a woman in public. As for the study about black women being chosen last, that is ONE website out of many, and we know that swirling potential varies depending on what part of the country you live in. Also you get what you pay for. That particular website is free. Not saying that someone can't find love on a free site or that they have to shell out huge amounts of money to find a real relationship, but guys who are just messing around are less likely to want to pay the monthly fees. And what does it matter that you get less responses than other women as long as you SOME responses from men COMPATIBLE to you? Like you and Evia say, you only need one.
Good job Stephanie! I hope a movie is to follow, executive produced by Sarah Jessica Parker and Martha Stewart :)

@Brenda55 @Maxine I know right?! I grew up watching Nell on Gimme a Break but never knew how slender she was in her young days or that she sang on the Hair soundtrack. I really love this musical (you can also hear the original 1968 Broadway version of the song on youtube) and everytime I hear someone accused black women interested in white men as "worshipping" them it makes me want to defiantly sing this song :) Oh yeah the black men on the Vietnam draft board are actually The Stylistics!

@The ArchAngel @_Toni_ What person in his or her right mind wanted to get married at 14 years old in 1979?
The ones that were preggers.
@Brenda55 @BeautyIAM I was thinking of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0sjn2m47T8
Oh I forgot smoked salmon. So make that my top eleven :)
4 weeks ago on Chef Bob: Grilled Coconut Lobster
Hmmm...shrimp, chocolate , spaghetti, crab, sushi, wild mushrooms (inc truffles), cheese (any kind), mangoes, bread (mostly any kind but esp French bread and corn bread). Honorable mentions to pumpkin, cherries, ice cream, calamari, cheesecake, and dandelion greens.
Lobster is one of my 10 favorite foods on the planet. YUM!

@kia I respect Anna Wintour for sticking to her guns on this (no matter how they portrayed her in The Devil Wears Prada, ha ha) and also the Hollywood Walk of Fame for their refusal to give stars to reality show celebrities.
1 month, 1 week ago on Example Number 435,098,182 of What’s Wrong With Some Idiots in the Black Community
@Lily10 The worst part was when he said (this part from the story on Sandra Rose) that Michelle Obama could not Instagram a picture like the one Kim did, referring to her selfie baring butt and said-boob. How crass. On what planet is the First Lady of the United States SUPPOSED to send a picture like that??? What irks me is his cries of racism while making money off the Confederate flag, promoting a white Jesus, and demeaning black women. In his mind black people = black men only.
For the record, Barbara Walters was friends with Kris Jenner going way, way back, so her nose up the Kardiashians' butts has less to do with talent and more to do with nepotism. Kris was a stewardess who married well not once but twice, and leveraged her friends in high places. Otherwise these people are about nothing.
@FriendsofJay I can't remember how I found out about The Wicker Man, but I love that film! Nicolas Cage starred in a remake that was pretty terrible. My favorite line is when the inspector breathlessly tells Christopher Lee (the perfect "villain") that people are jumping over bonfires without their clothes on. Lee matter-of-factly says of course--it's much too dangerous to jump over fire with your clothes ON.

Thank you for covering this slap in the face to black women. There are umpteen white Vogue cover models that he could've compared his sex tape girlfriend to, but no, he picked the only black First Lady we've ever had...a very fit, classy, intelligent, fashionista of a black woman. He's lost his mind.
Wow they're a beautiful couple! I've never heard of The Sisterhood until now. Yet another show showcasing women--esp. black women--fighting each other? And in the church??? Well I hope this one takes a different tack, esp. if their children are involved. I'll withhold judgment for now and hope for the best.

Mwahahahaha I love it!
2 months, 1 week ago on Issa Ray Pisses off the Religious Innanets With “Crips4Christ” Rap Parody
She had a serious, long-term relationship that made it to the engagement stage. She wasn't his side piece, she didn't have a messy divorce, she wasn't left carrying a child with no father in its life. Like a lot of couples who are the same color, they went their separate ways for whatever reason. There is nothing here that should shame her or any woman about swirling!

@new shoes Ha ha--had your coworkers never watched Pretty Woman and that famous scene where she comes back into the store that rebuffed her the fist time? "Big mistake. Big. Mistake."
4 months ago on How To Be A Strong Black Woman: Follow Oprah’s Example
@sassyjai02 @Tammy_Ghalden It's only 70 miles from Austin--may be worth the drive on the weekends. I used to live there and LOVED it. It's a whole different ball of wax from the rest of the state and has lots of young, open-minded singles. While I didn't see BW/WM couples out and about in the numbers I see them in southern California (the black population there is under 10%), the few black women I knew personally were in committed relationships with white men.
4 months ago on My Favorite Swirling Cities
I'm not a mother so forgive me if this sounds ignorant, but are most women thinking about their daughter's dating lives at five months??? She has no idea that her daughter will be curvaceous-yet-not-fat like the other women in the family, or that her skin won't darken or her hair frizz up as she ages. She doesn't even know yet if her daughter will like men period. And what about the father? A girl often models her choice of man after her da. I agree with Christelyn's advice never to tell your child not to date a certain group of people (because they will rebel) and to place character above color. Other than that this letter struck me as odd. Gorgeous? Head turning? Someone chased her down in a mall because they couldn't believe her beauty? Is this a five-month old or a Victoria's Secret model? I hope the author focuses on more immediate issues like her own stereotyping of black men and possible issues with color and hair texture. And teach her daughter that her worth isn't tied up 100% in her looks.
