@BeautyIAM @keimiasmoon Makeup! Why didn't anyone tell me to use it earlier?! In my house makeup was only for special occasions. I wasted a good part of my young adult years not looking as fly as I could be lol. I love skirts and dresses now, jewelry makeup etc. I'm glad to see more and more Black women paying attention to those too. Some of these girls are looking so hot I can't compete, it's wonderful to see. 


I agree, Black women are Ferraris but sometimes we treat ourselves like Toyotas.

@BeautyIAM At least in my case I've had to spend a good part of my growing years stifling it because the Black men and boys in my neighborhood were so aggressive. I suspect a lot of Black women and girls are growing up in neighborhoods where they have to do the same. Not to mention the unaddressed sexual abuse that goes on.

Setting standards early is the best thing that you can do for a young girl. It's not a surefire way but it definitely helps. I knew growing that I could never bring home a guy wearing a white tee and saggy jeans, no matter what the race. No. Frakkin. Way. Heck, it was a struggle for my parents when I was dating a guy that didn't have a college degree. I could also look to my parents' relationship and see what the guy should bring to the table. Be explicit in the good qualities that a man should have. Everyone has their ups and downs in dating, but my struggles were definitely a lot milder than a lot of my peers. I feel sad that a lot of Black girls do not have this guidance.

@jazzyfae45 I had an ex that made similar "jokes". He wanted to get married and I think he thought he could force the deal by getting me pregnant. It made me uncomfortable and I left. Now that I am in my 30s I am starting to see that some men have a biological clock that's ticking loudly too.

@_Toni_   I've been following the BWE movement since it first came out and I have seen a very noticeable shift in attitudes in Black women. BWE ideas have no entered the sphere of mainstream Black female thought. It's incredible. Before you'd get a cacophony of "Nothing but a Black man", now you more women are saying "We support them, but they don't support us". It's amazing when I look at the comment section now on some articles. I can't believe how the view has shifted toward BWE. Personally, I thought it'd take a little bit longer to be so prevalent!

This question sounds a bit suspicious. This co-parenting nonsense was brought up some time ago on two other popular websites for Black women. The Swedish argument has been brought up over there as well.


#1 If you can't share a space with an adult, don't expect a child to be easier. Children will be all up under you. 


#2 I can't help how sad this is. I understand there are people that are introverts, but to not want or care about being loved enough for a man to want be with you and marry you?

@smartacus It is bullying plain and simple and I wish more Black women would see that. I mean there is some abuser level stuff going on. Telling BW that they're ugly, that no one wants them, that they're bitter, that they're desperate. They are just methods of control, designed to keep a BW in her "place".

I remember the first time I learned that I was supposed to just sit back and wait for a man to send me a message online. I've never done that. It doesn't mean that I'm out asking guys for dates, but saying hello doesn't hurt. I treat it the same offline. Offline I do things to make guys know that I'm friendly like say hi, strike up a conversation etc. Same thing for online. It's online dating, not the club or a bar. Also realize that some of these sites might not be showing you all the same results for eligible people. I've heard friends say that the person who contacted them never showed up in their search results, or showed up at the end of them. Personally, I rarely look at the list of guys that view my profile. I focus on the men I'd like to talk to.

I've always felt that this new crop of misogyny is fueled in part by mother hatred. But I think that mothers have influence up to a certain point and then peer influence takes over. Raise them well, but then limit their exposure to DBR males whether it's on TV, music, school, etc. I only say this because I've watched family members grow from loving kids into total DBRs because they hung around a wrong crowd.

I don't have to worry about the corner dudes any more because I moved out of my own Blackistan but I do ride my bike regularly to work and school. I love it! I live in a city with tons of bicycle lanes and bike paths and the side streets are pretty free of cars so I can generally ride to my heart's content. It is so much fun!

I would get a U-lock. I tell students that all you're doing by getting a cable lock is providing security for the bikes with U locks. Both can be defeated, but a cable lock is far easier to just cut off for thieves. Combining the two is the best combination out of all. Make sure you lock through the wheel and frame especially if you have a quick release wheel. 

If you're biking at night make sure you're lit up as much as possible. My city only requires a red blinker at the back, but that is not enough and at night bikers are hard to see. I wish I could wear a vest full of lights.
