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

Black Women: Starting Over, Moving On and Out

When is the best time to move? NOW. When is the best time to start over? NOW. Spring is a marvelous time of year to run from wherever we are to someplace better. Right now. The following quote comes from Monae: It’s not that easy to meet white guys where I live. It’s not like […]

When Black Women Choose To Date Inter-Racially, They Are Not Abandoning Their Race

The following quote comes from Womanist Musings Blog. She is so on point. The first love of a Black woman’s life should always be herself. We have been taught to devalue ourselves because this strengthens not only the Black male patriarchy but patriarchy in and of itself. Any man that refuses to treat you like […]

Black Women: My Pursuit of Happiness

I love myself. I am relaxed about it. I am mostly cheerful, generous, vain, conceited, selfish, don’t suffer pangs of guilt, and I like women who are this way too. In men, this is a no-no. I love being a woman. If I could be reincarnated, I wouldn’t hesitate with my choice: same person, same […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 George Costanza Method

One of my all-time favorite shows, when I bother to contemplate and can recall it, is Seinfeld. In the beginning, when it was the Seinfeld Chronicles, I used to wonder how long it would last before NBC killed it. It was incredibly funny in a New York area inside-joke kind of way. In the beginning, […]

Braindump Thursday: It’s June Already?

Goal Setting I feel like I am behind the curve, or far from the goal posts. I always have a couple of goals I want to achieve, but I’m not even half way there, and half the year is almost gone! Tweets I signed up for Twitter.com, although for the life of me, I still […]

Project Cheerful: Search for Happiness, Black Women!

I enjoy browsing the Internet for topics that interest me. I have many links to business, technology, science and a bit of political news. I set up a YouTube, Google, and Technorati search / blog / news / link pages, plus my own searches, to offer up information regarding black women’s lives, and our natural […]

Self-Worth: That Voice in Your Head

Do you have an inner or outer critic that won’t shut up? Does the inner critic sound familiar, like a mother, father or other relative that wouldn’t let up on how terrible they want you to think you are? I used to wonder how people ended up not speaking to their relatives for years even […]
