care less, love is love. However, I have heard folks say that black men
are now choosing Latinos because they get the white girl hair and the
black girl curves all in one. The best of both worlds. That's just what
If a very rich group of people approached you and told you they will give you $1 million cash as a bonus if you will be the voice and face of their agenda (an agenda that you TRULY don't believe in and which basically focuses on the continued perpetuation of a form of hate) and then a salary of $2 million per year...would you?
Your child comes home from the first day of school very unhappy and tells you they don't want to go back there ever again.
There is nothing new about the school or environment that you can thing of as you've lived in the same area for a long time and your child has gone to school with pretty much all the same kids their entire life.
Your child won't tell you what's going on other than to say they just don't want to.
I think the tribe should start a revolution about married men and Facebook because this has to stop. I have a married man who is a realtor in my Facebook inbox right now who, under the initial guise of networking, is saying shit like he wants to get to know me better and hopes to see me real SOON. I wish I could say this is a one time thing but it happens all the time in private messages and I'm about to make it a policy to not friend any married man unless he's family.
Have any of you had married Facebook Pimpage in your inbox? How did you handle?
Anybody got you caught up with bittersweet memories sometimes? Do you still think you did the right thing and made the right decision?
"...see you have you to understand. Somebody is going to get hurt out of this situation and you just hope it isn't you..."
Is it a good thing to go into a relationship with the mindset that somebody is going to eventually get hurt? Is that healthy?????
Sephora gave me a whole bunch of different mascaras to try so today I tried out the plum one. It's pretty bright inside the tube but I'll be darned if you can just barely make it out. Can yall see it? What say you? (SIP: Oh...and I know yall looking for the white Chiclet. NOT!)
This is a still from "Marco Polo." Whenever possible I like to use real people I know who have major personality that I think would translate well on screen. Well...onefromphilly has the meanest side eye this side of the Atlantic and I was hoping it would pop on screen.
Well? What do YOU think? Does she have the side eye down or what?
— Italy's health minister traveled to Sicily on
Monday to apologize to a new mother for an operating room fistfight
between two doctors that led to her botched delivery.
Laura Salpietro, 30, had to have her uterus removed and her son
Antonio suffered heart problems and possible brain damage following his
birth Thursday in Messina's public hospital, Italian news reports said.
"Katrina finished what she started today. Granny died." ~ Weezy
Five years ago Weezy's grandmother was vibrant and sharp as a tack. She knew her way around her kitchen blindfolded and she loved her life and her family more than anything.
Five years ago Katrina hit and she had to leave her beloved home in order to stay alive. She evacuated with family and ended up for the next three years living in Houston, Atlanta and Dallas before being able to be returned to her beloved New Orleans.
She started showing signs of the wear and tear of missing her life and of how badly the tragedy rocked her. Her health deteriorated at a rapid speed and...when she could return to New Orleans...it was to a nursing home that had been lovingly researched by her family as the best one able to give her the best quality care for her specific medical needs.
All she ever wanted, however, was to go back to her home even as her family knew she couldn't handle seeing the destruction of it and kept her away.
But she asked all the time. "Why can't I go to my house?"
As the rest of the world was talking about the anniversary of Katrina as if it's something to do once a year...she, along with so many others, had been living with it every single day for 5 years. It's not a sound bite. Not a human interest piece. Not an opportunity for someone to make money off what happened to our people.
BK...AK...Before Katrina and After Katrina...there is always still Katrina.
She left us yesterday on the anniversary of the storm that changed her life forever. Her children were there and spent the night in the nursing home with her because the doctor had shared that it was just a matter of time.
And now she's gone. On the anniversary of the day that started it all.
There are so many lives that will never be the same because of Katrina. So many families still ripped apart. So many people who would still do anything to return to their beloved New Orleans.
I hope yall are still praying for them.

With a deadpan, Beck insists that he is not political: "I could give a
flying crap about the political process." Making money, on the other
hand, is to be taken very seriously, and controversy is its own coinage.
"We're an entertainment company," Beck says.
