Media Watch: Black Women and The Blind Side

I sorta liked this movie. Yet, I was also disturbed by it. I happen to like Sandra Bullock, even though her taste in men is dreadful. 🙂 So my criticism is of the film itself, and not her as an actress. Also, I’ve learned not to expect anything meaningful from Hollywood, especially with movies including […]

The Jeremy Lin Show

NBA: Same Ol’ Same Ol’ It has been years since I’ve followed sports, basketball in particular. I watched the Knicks when Ewing played for them, that’s how long ago it’s been. And if you want to know how out of it I was, I’ve never watched Michael Jordan play. I’ve never tuned into his games. […]

Tips for Today’s Negroes: A Lesson in Manners

Who’s Your Daddy? Yeah, yeah, I know a lot of you did not have Fathers to teach you how to be a gentleman. And the likelihood is high that your Mothers probably didn’t have the time, inclination, or interest in teaching any of y’all manners. Maybe everybody thought that lil man ShayQuan being rude and […]

Ladies, Is He Good Enough For You?

As we often see in the news, or experienced based on observation, plenty of men reach powerful positions, have a lot of responsibilities, and will be totally, absolutely morally deficient. They will be amoral, immoral, with a massive touch of egotism. Oh, they’re Alpha Males alright, better known as dogs, not wolves. Dogs are wonderful […]

Relationship Barriers: Black Women, White Men and Other Non-Black Men

Note: Let me put my caveats up front. This post obviously does not apply to each and every black woman, since some of us are flexible, flirtatious, and at ease with white and other non-black men. The Swirl Imperative: Becoming More Social There is no shame in lacking a flirting game or being a bit […]

Black Women: Why is the Wall Street Journal, and the media, still talking about our marriage prospects?

I liked this comment by Daphne so much, I made it a separate post. Check out the following. Regarding the WSJ* article making the rounds: I found it bizarre that this was in the The Wall Street Journal*, just like I thought it was bizarre there was a similar article about black women in The […]

For Black Women – No Respect: Is It Open Season on Black Women and Black Girls?

Thanks for the various links Amanda (BWMM) and Bellydancer. 🙂 They Don’t Respect Disabled Little Girls: Papa’s Gotta Straighten Them Out A black father boards a bus to stop “children” from bullying his disabled daughter. I can tell you right now. Back in the day, if that had been me –  my Father, my Mother, […]

Rant: What I Dislike About Being a Black Woman Sometimes

Oh, I like being a woman who’s also “black”, just fine, it’s people getting on my nerves that ruins it. You are damned if you do, and damned if you don’t. People like making up these “what a black woman shouldn’t do” rules, because they are emotional bullies, hypocrites, and misogynists. If you work for […]

Rant: To People Who Compare Every Politically Incorrect Expression or Treatment to "the Blacks"

Stop it right now. Stop those trite, irritating, and annoying expressions of “Well, it is like doing X against the blacks,” or “Well, it is like using the N-word to describe group Y,” or the all time favorite, “Group Z going through this discrimination is like doing this to the blacks.” For real though, those […]

Rapunzalima, Rapunzalima Let Down Your Weave

Went out to a mall a few miles away with my Mother. It’s always a challenge when I go out to eat. At this particular chain (TGI Fridays), they provide no information on their website as to how many calories their food has. It was the only eatery I could find on my GPS, otherwise […]

It’s Cranky Sunday! My List of Dislikes

1. Taking myself seriously. 2. People who take themselves too seriously. Oh, so boring. 3. Comedians who don’t know how to tell a joke without using racial, sexual, politically-incorrect situations, profane language, stereotypes, and still aren’t funny. That’s the bigger crime, not being funny even after using up every taboo. 4. Extremely long trips in […]

Blog Wars: I Am Always Right!

It’s confusing to peruse some blogs (I have read a lot!), and there will be a long winded, or short biting rant about persons X, Y, and Z. They may leave some crumbs as clues, but overall I don’t know who / what they are talking about. And do not care, for that matter. I […]

Praying versus Purposeful Living: The Tigress Has Stripes

I had taken this vow, or made it my goal, to be nicer to people this year. I don’t mean mindlessly self-effacing, humble, or accommodating. I am polite, that’s a given. My intention is to shutdown the harsh critic that resides in my brain. I decided that if I keep the internal-thought-troll quiet, it wouldn’t […]

The Shameless Society

I’m not a Bible thumper. I’m not religious. I don’t believe in end-times, or anything like that. I see myself as moderate, perhaps a tad conservative. I’m not a “liberal” or “progressive.” Although those terms often seem to mean: I do not think. Rules are lame. I can do whatever I want, whenever I want, […]
