Did I get your attention? I’m warning those of you who are very tender and sensitive to be aware that the next few paragraphs will be no-holds barred, non-politically correct, coming from my perspective and experiences (off-line). So, this isn’t something I gleaned from reading anyone’s comments, blogs, Facebook profiles, or having a third eye [...]
One of these days, when I have the time… and it is Black History Month. Although if folks want to get the ball rolling you may start talking about it.
Introducing a website dedicated to dating, relationship, and coaching services for black American women who want to date interracially or internationally. Swirling & Marriage is brought you to by a truly awesome member of the BWE community Lorraine Spencer. In 2010 Lorraine helped highlight some sisters, which achieved international newspaper coverage. She also placed ads [...]
Language Skills I started watching these shows, since Hulu added this category. What’s interesting to me, is that I’m beginning to understand what the characters are saying in Korean. Words are floating around in my head, because they’re repeated so often. I can read a few words in some languages, but I’ve never picked up [...]
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 [...]
The Question Asked of me by C.B.: If you are educated, would you or have you married a blue collar wm? Many folks are quick to suggest bw take or accept a lower level bm on the academic and economic label. Why is this a problem if a bw marries a wm on a lower [...]
How to Play It Serious The best information always comes from the comments section. I’d like to highlight these tips from Lisa: I started reading BWE blogs when I was 27 and now I’m married at 32. I might still be thinking about all the time I have and feeling that there’s “no rush” if [...]
Using an interesting quote from Classic NYer: But that being said, perhaps I can show you another point of view. Take for example my brother, a stand -up individual raised by my mother and father with correct morals, treats his mother and two sisters with respect, graduated with degrees and working on another one, acts [...]
I like Queen Latifah (Dana Owens), so I am willing to sit down and watch her movie(s). Long Descriptions Ahead Did I like Just Wright? To be honest, I dunno. Sometimes I’m too busy thinking about its message to appreciate whether it was fun to watch or not. What message? Oh, the Good Employed Hard [...]
It’s the last day of September, Devil’s Advocate* month. It’s round up time. Before I begin, I have to highlight these fantastic blogs for their incisive commentary: Black Women’s Interracial Relationship Circle: 5 things bw need to realize about the current black social milieu Acts of Faith In Love & Life: Pimps, Predators & The [...]
It’s September, and it’s Devil’s Advocate* month. I was sent a link to this picture. Thanks Chocholatestar. We don’t know who created it, but it does beg the question: Are black males real men? People like to pretend that out of wedlock (OOW) births are an issue that is the sole responsibility of, and problem [...]
That got your attention, didn’t it? Apparently, my old, old post Why White Men are a Better Choice was interpreted (by the mentally handicapped and functionally illiterate) as a heartfelt plea for black women everywhere to sex it up with all the nearest and available white men. It seems that I’ve been successful at convincing [...]
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, [...]
