Narcissism for Black Women: The Very Good and Healthy Expression of Deep Self-Love, and Extreme Self-Devotion. Why? Because It's Good For Ya! And Sometimes I Write about Natural Hair, Among Other Things


pithy quote goes here

Merry Christmas and Happy New York

Hope everyone is in fine health. Please continue to take good care of yourselves. Still on hiatus. I guess one day it’ll be over and I’ll be blogging again. Hopefully, 2014 will turn out to be infinitely better than 2013. Cheers.

Black Women and Asian Men: K-POP @ KCON With G-Dragon And Missy Elliot Makes History

Oh, that was a mouthful. So, for some of you this may be old news, but I like this story…. On August 24 – 24, an event called KCON took place in Los Angeles at LA Memorial Sports Arena. This venue accommodated a doubling of attendance from last year to around 20k. G-Dragon performed his […]

The Difference Between Rev Martin Luther King Jr and Barack Hussein Obama

One man served as a humble servant of the people and this nation. The other thinks he’s the king of humbled servants, this nation, and the world.

How’s It Going Folks?

Things are definitely looking up for my family member. No longer seriously ill and the recovery is coming along nicely. Thanks for all the well wishes. Now, I can totally stop worrying – at least about this….  😀 ** So, what’s new? I figure I’d throw something up just to let you know I’m still […]

Open Forum: What’s On Your Mind? Talking About Self-Control and Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day, everyone. May our troops, veterans and allies stay safe. *** Time Travel(s) I’m in the middle of a long, lovely, idyllic and idle weekend. Rather cold, but I like it like that. I remember a couple of summers a few years back that were rather chilly. Time is going by much too […]

Rihanna – Stay ft. Mikky Ekko | Pink – Just Give Me a Reason ft. Nate Ruess

He’s so very cute, that Mikky Ekko. Doesn’t she look like she’s trying to fart in the tub at the end? That expression on her face…. Like the video, I only wish they’d been fair and have him without that sweater on. Nice arms.  😀   I like this song too.

Decepticons: The Jason Collins Story and Wasting Years of Your Life Waiting on Him

Long-winded title, but hoping you get the point. Maybe you’ve heard about it. Maybe you’ve been blissfully unaware of the hullabaloo that’s dominated the mainstream media for a couple of days. See, what happened is an NBA baller (snicker) earned his 15 minutes of fame by declaring that he is – wait for it – wait for […]

Open Forum: What’s on your mind? Boston, Obama, et al.

I meant to get this out earlier in the week. I usually want to avoid writing about topical news until enough time has lapsed. That’s because there’s always more information forthcoming. Well, even with the little I do know, I don’t have much to say with regards to the Boston Marathon tragedies. Why? I am […]

So, President Obama Cannot Call A Black Woman “Best Looking”?

Spot Check: Controlling That Narrative About Beauty I’m not the biggest fan of the man, based on his performance in office, but the shrieking and howling by the media is hilarious. All I notice is that the biggest complainers of the President calling Kamala Harris, “The best-looking Attorney General in the country,” were white women […]

Black Women: When All Else Fails In Heterosexual Relationships, Become A

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 […]

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 […]

Open Forum: What’s On Your Mind?

I’m a blank right now. 😀 Pick any topic you like or post links. The floor is yours. The Blizzard That Wasn’t I was expecting more snow, but I’m thankful my area wasn’t hit with much. A good lot of it has melted away already. Unfortunately, the New England area is another story. Amazing Analysis […]

Real Life vs Fiction: Faces of a Villain

Recently, I’ve been watching a thoroughly enjoyable crime drama. There’s always quite a number of them floating around: cop shows, superhero movies, episodic thrillers and the like. However, when it is really riveting – I’m reminded of the crucial aspect which makes them work. A story with only an awesome protagonist lacks the essential element […]

Are Black Children Too Stupid to Learn? Part II: Black and Asian People

I really liked the following comment by bretagne, so I decided to make it a separate post. This was in response to, “Are Black Children Too Stupid To Learn?” So, let it rip bretagne: We can never have these discussions without re-inscribing tropes about Asian achievement. As someone who has been teaching in the Korean […]

Good News Travel Comrades: We’re (Almost) Free to Fly Unmolested

My first post of 2013, and it is on the perfect subject. As Nysee mentioned a few posts back: this is the time to get back on track, or continue with our goals. Travel is a big part of that! I feel deprived not being able to leave for domestic and international destinations because of all the […]
