Please let those of us who want to laugh for a few moments, do that without your judgement. Without your claims of being unpatriotic. We may laugh for a moment but I can assure you that most of us are praying just as hard if not harder for peace because that is what we have and will continue to strive for as black people, safer and better days for not and not just for our children but for humanity.

I’ve had enough of watching cell phone footage and or body cam videos of children assaulted by school resource officers….

As time went on, however, daily sex routines turned into once in a while. Date nights were a thing that happened on occasion and minor disagreements turned into full blown arguments. The signs were there but often times we are blinded by the lust and the “love” that we miss them or sweep them under the rug

Then again, if I look a little closer, maybe I look exactly like what depression looks like. In my mind, depression looks like sadness, lethargy, malaise. In my head, depression looks like you stop smiling, you stop looking happy, you stop getting things done. When I think about it, maybe I do look like depression; it’s just that the happy-happy-joy-joy mask that I wear for the world is really freaking good.  

As a single mommi, I am always looking for ways to entertain my one-year-old daughter. Most days it’s usually just…

I literally laughed out loud and thought, this is about as true as everyone claiming to be “Living Their Best Life” and we all know just how true that is. After listening to the song again I’ll be the first to admit, while I was extremely entertained, I was left utterly confused. Are they serious? Are they making a mockery out of generational infidelity which runs rampant in the Black community? Nobody is actually taking this song serious right? After scrolling through the internet, I landed on the one comment that seemed to sum it all up for me, “This is a whole Jussie Smollett ass lie!” I died! This person is absolutely right, the idea sounds good and it’s something we really want to believe but of course we all know better! So, as we sit back and watch some of the most ignominious of men across the nation take this blasted pledge of “attempted fidelity,” I’m sure many women, like myself, are left bewildered by this entire movement. 

When you hear the term “Daddy Issues” do you automatically think of the cliche poor misguided girl who’s fumbling through…

I remember one thing that I’ll never forget that I asked him one day when he was walking down the stairs. I said to him “Is it ok if I call you Daddy Jerritt since you aren’t going anywhere soon?”. He said back to me “Do you want to call me that?”. From that point on, I KNEW that I wanted him to be the one I call “Dad” for the rest of my life.

The pain of it is still real today like it just happened. I knew it was coming, I had seen…

This weekend I sat down with my entire family to watch NetFlix’s “When They See Us”, created by Ms. Ava DuVernay; about the “Central Park 5” bka the “Exonerated 5”. The miniseries was released on May 31st and has received a lot of buzz, rightfully so. It was masterfully done and I am so glad that the REAL story has been told.

I gained a new level of respect for Kim Kardashian’s parenting.  She understands that even though her kids are biracial, in this society, they are considered black. They are being raised with an awareness of their black culture, therefore, she practices and celebrates the customs.

“How?” can we continue his outstanding work, and how can I create a legacy now? Here are just a few ways you can create a legacy now.
