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: 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 […]

Black Actress Media Watch: Flashpoint’s Olunike Adeliyi

Flashpoint has been on CBS for four years! Where have I been? I don’t own a TV, so I don’t keep up with all the new or existing programs. Since I have to shift through Fancast, Hulu and Netflix, it’s hard to know which shows are still running and which have been canceled. I’ve actually […]
