Victimizing Black Women: NY Times Thinks Cure for Black Women and Black Family Poverty is “Let Em Out of Jail”

According to the “experts” they sought out for this article, black males have been locked up for far too long. If you want to read an institutional and media driven message – that hurts black women – the following NY Times article is a prime example: Long Prison Terms Eyed as Contributing to Poverty It’s so […]

Are Black Children Too Stupid To Learn?

Florida School System Gives Up on Black Children Are black children really that hard to educate? Or are people who are supposed to be professionals, you know – experts at teaching, declaring that there’s an actual limit to black intelligence? Are black children really too stupid to learn? A nephew of mine believed he wasn’t […]

Wayne Brady vs Bill Maher: How a Good Brotha Fights A Bad White Man

He does it by talking about the black women (of questionable repute) that the “bad white man” dates. Say What? Apparently, Wayne Brady (WB) got plenty tired of Bill Maher (BM) using his name to lament President Obama not being hardcore or thuggish enough to suit him. Perhaps both should search YouTube for that video […]

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 […]

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 […]

Black Culture As Defined by the Japanese

MsMellody writes: I would like you (Betty) to write a blog piece on the following Japanese news story. I came upon this video while just looking around on the web…to say that I was shocked would be an understatement. Let me add this last bit of info – seeing that I am well past this […]

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 […]

White Women

A while ago, someone sent an email asking why did I not write about white women. That was funny. The Proper Focus At the top of this blog, the stated purpose of this site is to acknowledge the awesomeness of BLACK women. I’ve been accused of being a white man at times (tee hee hee), […]

Hollywood’s Obsession with Nazis

Missing Pieces of the Puzzle One of the first scenes in X:Men First Class is devoted to a concentration camp … and Nazis. I turned to my friend, asking, “Why?” She said, “They are the obvious bad guys.” When we saw Shutter Island, I wondered. “What do the Nazis have to do with DiCaprio‘s character […]

Black Women: Please Yourself First

Note: This is a random rant. I’m a selfish person. I’m not afraid to admit that. It’s probably because I’m the last child, the only girl, and spoiled rotten. I’m generous, friendly or kind – when it suits me. Guilt Gets One Nowhere. I’ve racked my brain to find instances of when I’ve pitched in, […]

Tears of a Clown: Keith Ellison’s Manhood Goes on Sale

Remember back when John F. Kennedy swore that the Pope didn’t make his decisions for him? (On September 12, 1960, he said, “I am not the Catholic candidate for President. I am the Democratic Party’s candidate for President who also happens to be a Catholic. I do not speak for my Church on public matters […]

To The Black Women Who Defend Barack Obama (or Any Black Male)

Shellacking November 2nd was a shocker wasn’t it? Wow, that was some election. Where did all the progressives and liberals go? Are they only in California, Connecticut, Delaware, and New York? I know a lot of you think that the sole and most important reason for the Republican and Tea Party takeover of the House […]

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, […]

For Black Women: Please Have Sex With White Men

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 […]

Dear Pepsico,

Please note: I did send this note, via email. I just heard an ad for your “Refresh Project” and the music of John Mayer, “Waiting.” Is your advocacy also endorsing the words of a racist / sexist bigot? Is David Duke a part of your “Refresh Project” as well? You hypocrites can drop Tiger Woods, […]

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 […]

Avatar – Dances With Cat People

I liked the movie, Avatar, by James Cameron. I have not seen Titanic. The thought of watching a three hour movie about a sinking ship doesn’t appeal to me. This movie is spectacular to look at. The 3D aspect does make you feel immersed in the movie. Very nice to look at. Plot: The natives, […]

If Black Women Were White Women by Alienated Conclusions

I am not a feminist / womanist, or whatever women decide to call themselves these days. I just believe in freedom, respect, prosperity, and the right to live a decent life as a human being for black women! The following essay was very well written. The author flips the script on the madness we’ve all […]

District 9

District 9 is the first major film effort of director Neill Blomkamp backed by Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings maestro). Shot documentary style, it is funny, gory (I likes!), and action packed. Not a dull moment. I enjoyed this movie, but it was a guilty sort of pleasure. It has one too many offensive, […]
