@Love_Kiddo How ya doiin' (in my New Jersey Mafia voice, big LOL', Love_Kiddo?    Welcome.


Just know, it will be on and poppin' at times.....er-body don't always agree with er-body.....that's how it be.     We, at least me, as Black women share varied experiences and developmental processes on this site.   We don't always agree, however, we do "speak to the choir" in our experience as Black women.


So, welcome to you.   This site has changed my life.   I hope it does the same for you.


Again, WELCOME (to the "pit".........BIG LAUGH OUT LOUD!).


Welcome to YOU!

@Justme65.   Oh, yes, he is the real deal and those whom lived to now from that era still want him gon'.  He gave up all dirty cops he knew of and sent them down in flames thus Serpico's name is still verboten among NYPD, even, from my understanding, to this very day.

Frank Serpico......still alive.......gave up NYPD cops in the '70s over their corruption and evil toward the residents of NYC.


There are those cops whom are now NYPD brass that still want him and his name dead and buried.


I was a child, though I do remember it being a big deal, when Serpico faced the then Mayor John Lindsey's Knapp Commission regarding said corruption and gave 'em up, names, ranks, and metaphorically kicked ass.


I remember Amadou Dialo being shot 41 times in the vestibule of his apartment building when he'd offered up a cell phone that was assumed to be a gun.


I also remember Abner Louima whom was raped by NYPD with a broomstick handle because he didn't "bow down" to them.


(so sad what happened to man in the video......losing his life over some 50 cent cigarettes.....word?)

@VadimvandenDonk @Kaiju_Bleu  I don't speak to the majority, just to the reality, of how Black men, in my experience with them, are.


Never kind, never "gentlemenly", never sweet, never just "interested".......always dirty......never kind........"Black women are always up to something"........are the experience I've always had Black males.     They are rarely sweet in a genuine way......always "You're a bitch in not speaking to me in the way I desire" from Black men.     Never kind......never. "Hey, how you doin, how is your day?"     Always "Hey mama, why you can't holla a brutha"..............BIG TURNOFF.


So when I used the term "share".......I look at that with serious skepticism.....and that is my right..........don't trust Black men in any way, shape, form or fashion because of past encounters with them........which are NEVER sweet.........always vile, dirty......and......disgusting.


So your "share" is dripping, from my point view, with heavy sarcasm, skepticism, and suspicion.     Don't trust Black men with mighty reason whether you dig it or not.

@VadimvandenDonk @Kaiju_Bleu, Lady A:


I've read your "share".


I will make this plain.    Black men have clear and present hatred toward Black women.


The individual that wrote the letter to Ms. Karazin is now finding out the very real "reality" that Black men, at least those I've encountered as a Black woman, and statements I've listened to by Black men, "high profile" or not, continue to tell us dark-hued Black women that they don't want us.    They shout it from the mountain tops "we only want, light, White, or anyone else but you".......That is Black men for you.


Sugarcoat you will NOT get from me.


Black men WILL not give protection to Black women, overall (Tom Joyner for witness Jeantel in GZ trial is one of rarity).


Black men will not stand up in majority Black communities and stop the killings, rapes, and denigration of Black women on THE DAILY.


Black men kill each other like dogs in the street, go to prison in unbelievable numbers, and expect us Black women to continue to support their sorry asses with our time and MONEY, (I ain't yo' Mammy).


Black men such as Kevin Hart, Dr. Dre, D.L, Hughly (following up Don Imus' calling the Rutgers College women "nappy headed hoes" on Jay Leno), and others continue to call us names and state they'd never date anyone that look anything remotely like "us".


Black men have expressed this now over the last 60+ years by not marrying Black women, by leaving their families for "something better"......ask Lauyn Hill about it......the woman has 5 (or six, not sure) children with a Bob Marley son.....and the man, damn near out of the blue "dumped" her and married some Brazilian model within a year of meeting the woman.


I've heard Black men personally state to my face "you're cute - for a dark girl".......how you form your face to even say something imbisillic such as that?


This woman is inquiring as to what she is now finding out to be the truth.


Black men have lost their manhood.    Few, if any, are MEN.


Black men have shirked their responsibilities to their communities, to their "families", to their whole of ownership of being Black men.


There are the few, Bill Cosby, being one.     The man called Black America out on its' bs and Black folk couldn't handle the truth when he stated "stop naming your children names you can't pronounce, stop speaking Ebonic, pull your pants up and look like a young man so you can get a job, stop going to prison".........the man stated this and Black folk saw it as an affront to them when, in fact, he was stating THE TRUTH.


Black men throw us under the bus daily........where do you think the names "chickenhead", "skeezer", "heaux", and nowadays THOT (them "heaux" over there) come from........it ain't Black women, so where those names come from?    It shole ain't White or other men?     ThIose names come from Black men.


This woman is finding out what I've now come to understand over the last 30 odd years, Black men don't want us.   They say it in various ways, not marrying us, having multiple children without the legal marriage that offers her and offspring legal protections, having children with other women that the wife may know, not supporting any of them and not just use her for a baby-pumping machine, hand-maiden and ATM........I mean, I can go on, and on, and on, and on, and on,..........


You won't save yourselves, let alone, Black communities going downhill, you won't stand up for Black women, but y'all will sell us down the road, for your Ferragamo belts, your "gold" pieces, and your "boys".........You'll stand ANYONE but us.


Black men have thrown their families away, never to call the family, or any type of life sustaining help or any type of love..........this I can attest to.


So, I wish this woman good luck in finding a "new type" of mate.   Someone who will offer her genuine love and care and who wants her and wants to be with her, and she, he..........and not some damned loser.

I stopped wearing the "bone-straight crown and "side-burn" Japanese Sumo wrestler look" about, now, 20 years ago.   Got tired of the relaxer, going to the hair-dresser all day on Saturdays to get upkeep for said look for corporate life at the time.   Started transitioning in the early 90's in that I got tired of all the drama that straightened hair requires.    Can't swim, do humidity, any form of hats, scarves, or anything of that sort.    Have "dreadlocks" going down my back now and my (John McCain - 40 years ago - current lookin' boyfriend....lol....sexy as heyall) loves to play with during intimate times, loves it.

Much easier to deal with and my hair is longer than ever.........done with other Black folk think about "my beauty".

Hey now.   Stopped goin' to churches a loooooooooooooonnnnnng time ago.  I agree with you all here.  I used to attend church(es) with relatives because we had to, and not just Sundays, but damn near 4 to 5 days a week.    Y'all know, choir practice, Sunday school, "mass", cooking of church dinners, attending other churches with choir, etc.   I CANNOT stand preachers AT ALL.   The lies they spew forth are repugnant.   The "prosperity pimps" don't give one damn about not a soul in pretty much any congregation in Black communities.    I saw this for myself how these "ministers" work.   They get the nice cars, nice homes, good schooling for their children.  However, the congregants are suffering with lost jobs, lost souls, broken homes and want to sell you a bill of goods about tithing their church with what little money that you may have.....ask them for help and see what you get.......a whole bunch nothing.      There are good churches out there, however, they are among the rare.


The games that are played in church are another turn-off.    Who's doin' who and how "light" are they?   Do y'all know that colorism is uber STRONG in the Black church.   Dark hued Black male preachers rarely, if ever, married dark-hued Black women......ALWAYS lighter.......I noticed that as a child........more so, now, as an adult.


I believe very little of anything that a so-called "man of God" has to say.......so much so........I have read and believe VERY LITTLE of "The Bible".........man written.......contradictory........always used as a weapon heavily against women..........I will not set foot in "houses of ill-repute"..........because that's what churches are, they ain't about soul savin', their about money getting, having, and hoarding and leading congregants into the sick world of organized religion.    I think it, the Black church, has in 2014 become the downfall of Black folk.   They don't address very real issues such as AIDS, drug use, sexuality, "the new world order"........The Black church is lagging in pulling Black folk out of their mire.   Lastly, I don't get why single Black women continue to go to church looking for their "Black Kang", when they don't, overall, attend church?    What you waitin' for dude to come out the sky?....lol.


Don't do churches.......less filling.

@NATruthstudent, Meant to say one of the few films that is equally done well and adapted damn near exactly to the level of detail that a book delivers would be, I think, the movie "The Godfather" (series 2 and 3).

@NATruthstudent, I love The Bodyguard also, NATtruthstudent, lol.   It's a tad corny here and there but still good overall.   It was a bit shocking, frankly, at the time, though "modern".    


Yes, I would say it was a mold-breaker in '92 and, yes, there should be "deeper, more intensive treatments of IR relationships" on film.  Would like to see more of it.    


Still, I want to check out Zane's "Addicted" in book form first, "the book" is generally better than "the movie" in that a story comes directly from the writer's head as opposed to the story being "adapted" from the book with Hollywood license, thus wrong casting in numerous ways, in a many instances.


(Ex:  Mario Puzo's "The Godfather" is equally as fantastic on film as written).

@bamabelle2k9 @kia Hey now.   I agree with you, bamabelle2k9, regarding The Bodyguard.   However, Kevin Costner, whom was majority financier of the film, stated in the late '90s (after the movies' 1992 release) that he KNEW the film would only go so far with love scenes in that love scenes with a Black woman superstar, at the time, would be problematic for HER image (in regard to her fan base).......at that time.   He also stated himself that he knew that the interracial film would be risky in terms of his (still) good and solid relationship with Warner Bros. and not getting a major return on his, and their, investment.     So I feel you that the film is "light" on, what could have, been serious love scenes in the film;  The film stands up still, though I did want "more" myself, lol.


(The man has many cool points for delivery of eulogy at Ms. Houston's funeral, being surrounded by a primarily Black congregation and having been born the son of a Baptist preacher, and was comfortable in "his skin" in that environment).


I'mma gonna have to get this Zane "Addicted" book, yes, the "old" kind, where you pick it up and read the paper pages one at a time - no e-reader for me, thank you, lol - I like sittin' in my comfies, in a chair with a good drink, soft or not, and being immersed into another world:-)

@Lady A You got that right, don't forget those other terms too "chickenhead", "skeezer" & the ultimate "heaux".    Again, I haven't lived in Black communities for 30 years, out of the question, as far as I'm concerned, they are detrimental to the soul.     It's amazing how our ancestors did everything to free themselves from bondage of Slavery and here we stand today where Black men despise Black women in any way they can. 


Those of us who date "out" are doing ourselves a great favor in removing ourselves from the vestiges of hate that Black men have developed for us.   Been done with them, plain and simple.    


That's why this is huge for Eve (and Black women) that a prominent Grammy winning rapper has married the man of her dreams and has moved to London, England away from her "hood" roots.    I highly agree with JolieMelodie that her story is truly inspirational.   Let this be the lesson.........it doesn't matter where you come from, it's where you're going, and Eve has truly grown and evolved into a beautiful woman whom is doing big things with her life (ask the tennis champion Williams sisters, from NWA's Compton to world wide champions....if they can do it..........we can do it.

@Lady A, You got that right, Lady A.   Music, rap in particular is horrid today.    What I've always loved about Eve was her bravado.    She was (is) all of that.   No female MCs now, well there are but they suck as far I'm concerned, we know who they are.   For that matter, there aren't really any good male MCs anymore, we know who they are.    I've gone back to Black music such as Earth, Wind & Fire,  Confunksion, Outkast (love me some Big Boi and Andre 3000, who is soon to play Jimi Hendrix in an upcoming movie, totally makes sense, them bruthas CAN rap), Toni Braxton (not her sisters), Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes (there is not a soul in the world today that sings soul better than the now deceased Teddy Pendergrass, son of a preacher, soul from the heart to billionth degree), Eric B & Rakim, Destiny's Child, TLC (loved me some Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, that woman could rap, RIP at her 2002 death in Honduras, South America), the now deceased Curtis Mayfield (Superfly, one of the baddest albums in the soul arsenal).......actually, been listening to some of the new country artists and they are beginning to incorporate small measures of rhyming into their songs (Florida/Georgia Line, I think to name one group, "This Is How We Roll" is their song, I think, not sure, lol)    I know you get what I'm saying..........I hope Eve doesn't dismiss rapping altogether, her man must know that's a segment of who she is.......still want to hear more music from her or maybe she's outgrown that area of her life and is ready to completely move into another direction...who knows.    Still I loved her bravado...


Actually, I was grocery shoppin' the other day and was rappin' under my breath to myself, yes, an older Jay-Z song, and a dude behind me actually said (to my initial horror) "that's pretty good", LOL, I turned fire engine red (even through my Black skin) from embarrassment, omg.    I tried quickly to get my goods and go and dude says "that's not bad at all"..... I wouldn't mind bein' a rapper, a little bit, but I have yet to have that "bravado" and bravery that rap requires.      That's why I love Eve so much, she has "the right stuff".

I, myself, don't do anything with any Black males involved, they are not to be taken seriously in any way, shape, form, or any type of fashion.  Homeboy needs to step to the bridge where he came from under and don't give a damn about he wants, it's what Black women want and it shole is heyall ain't this tired lookin' "I just got mt threads from K-Mart on a shoppin' spree", LOL!


E.V.E. is doin' BIG THANGS!   Leaving the the tired Black Male Negro BEHIND!    Good Riddance!


I love you E.V.E. and, again, a BIG CONGRATULATIONS to you as the NEW MRS. MAXIMILIAN COOPER.


YEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHH, BOYEEEEEEEEEEE!    Big laugh out loud!

Congrats to them for 22 years of marriage!   I remember Iman's career when she was THE supermodel of the 70's and 80s, particularly from the early (now deceased and 70s) Halston era.  I've always loved David Bowie, his Ziggy Stardust era, his androgenous (sp?) era, the 70s & 80s songs Fame, Young Americans, Under Pressure (with the band Queen), and Modern Love.  He is one of the best blue eyed soul/industrial/rocker performers of our time and uniquely handsome.


So, congratulations to them both!  


All I can say is, with a big smile, get off of your booty and "Let's Dance" :-)

I remember Arrested Development when they had Dionne Farris on the song "Tennessee".


Refreshing.....soul alive......the ladies have clothes on, lol, they look strange, not all half nekkid, lol.   They also look beautiful like us er'day girls, lol.


Love the cityscape back drops.   Love when the 2nd dude talks about wanting to watch t.v. with his son and sees The Bad Girls Club and Real Housewives fussin' and fightin'', bussin' it open, about the name brands and liquor in the mix, them beatin' up each other over gettin' a baller, rapper or hustler to live comfortable, what ever happened with being like Claire Huxtable?, so fake with silicone, botox, nose job, new shoes, "how you look in the mirror and it ain't you", LOL, LOL, LOL.


Love that they are talking about relate-able, everyday matters regarding marriage, kids, and a "responsible" life.


Let's Keep It Up......can't go back to where we started, Only Way Is Up......Up, Up, Up,   


Yeah, I dig it, (lol, that was sooooo real).

@Gijou Chiiiiillllllle, I'm in stunned disbelief in Michael Jace's matter.   I'm floored at what happened here.   Why, is all I have, why?   Yeah, money issues, Chapter 11 & 13 bankruptcy to restructure his mortgage note and finances.   But, damn, I continue to be in stunned disbelief as to this man killin' his wife in front of their children.   Why?   Why come you (Jace) kill yo' woman in front of the kids?   Why?   Why?   Why?   Why?


That ass will burn.   Why ruin your life, her life, the kids' life, and, lastly, yo' career?   Why?   Because you, Jace, mad?   Oh, son, all they lives are ova.     Sad, sick, twisted and perverted.    I just don't get it, I honest to Goddess, just don't get it.    Why, boy (Jace), Why?
