Having the Biggest Afro Physically Possible [and other things you will deal with]

I stan for my natural hair. Once an avid relaxer fangirl, I now shout "YASSSSSSSSSSSS" really loudly any time I see a natural proudly rocking her kinks. I've also received so many compliments on my extremely nappy and puffy hair that I have no darns to give about folks who feel natural hair is inappropriate … Continue reading Having the Biggest Afro Physically Possible [and other things you will deal with]

You Should’ve Left It To Beaver [on romanticizing the past]

Every day there is a new reason why I should just delete my Facebook account and never log on to that website again. The only thing keeping me on there is because FB was more or less shooting with me in the gym regarding my social media life. And you know how it is when … Continue reading You Should’ve Left It To Beaver [on romanticizing the past]

You’re Blinded by the Fashion [and other ways WSPS is infringing on my liberty]

Let me start this post off by saying, HAPPY BLACK FOLKS MONTH YALLLLLLL! There's just Black Excellence Recognition everywhere.

The Metaphorical Thorn in My Side (aka Things That Grind My Gears)

If you've never heard the story of Paul and the thorn in his side, basically, in 2 Corinthians Paul, a devout follower and spreader of the Good News of Jesus, writes that in order to keep him humble in his missionary work he was given (by God presumably) a "thorn in his side". Not a … Continue reading The Metaphorical Thorn in My Side (aka Things That Grind My Gears)

What’s The Point of A Truth?

So this week in pop/hip-hop circles, four albums that people more or less have been waiting on dropped. J.Cole, Chrisette Michelle, Kelly Rowland, and Kanye West all dropped albums yesterday and hip hop heads the world over rejoiced. It was basically a firestorm of reviews and acclaims and critiques and twitter quotes. Although i refused to purchase … Continue reading What’s The Point of A Truth?

Because Iyanla’s Busy [Things I Do to Fix My Life]

I'm about folks dealing with their issues, letting go of their demons, and moving on with their lives. I think it's one of the healthiest things we as humans can do for ourselves outside of talking and fellowshipping with God. If you've never heard of Iyanla, she's a life counselor (or at least that's what I call … Continue reading Because Iyanla’s Busy [Things I Do to Fix My Life]

Fairy Tales and White Supremacists (and other necessary evils)

I doubt there's any one who would argue that reality tv is of benefit to society. Actually it'll be much easier to count the people who would make this argument than it would to count the people that oppose it. Yet, reality show after reality show keeps popping up on the television. It done got so bad … Continue reading Fairy Tales and White Supremacists (and other necessary evils)
