You have probably heard about the exhibiton by now “Watching Oprah: The Oprah Winfrey Show and American Culture”. The exhibit honoring the Talkshow Host’s legacy opened last week at the National Museum of African American History but have you heard her speech?
I personally couldn’t stomach to watch the complete interview of TMZ. Kanye in self absorbance claiming that he did liposuction for us because he didn’t want to be fat so he became addicted to opioids, was just too much for me.
So Black barbie’s hairstyle became a topic of disscusion. While others think the style is appropiate othes had harsh words like Corn rows & a ratchet blonde weave why y’all playing in black Barbie’s face ?? Take a look and decide for yourself.
On the subject of Bill Cosby – and this message is specifically for people who identify as Black – no matter if you think Cosby is guilty of serial rape or the victim of a racist system that perpetuates the image of the “beastly” black brute lusting/drugging/raping white woman – I say to you that our children are watching and we want/need them (our girls and our boys) to be clear – that actions have consequences.
This image was posted on facebook in the facebook group Natural Hair. Although it didn’t have as many comments in the group, it seems like it’s going viral on instagram. Your thoughts and what do you think about the the artist’s explanation?
*NEW ART* “American Thought” by Watson Mere. This image is more so of a symbolization of 2 cultures that have lived on the same land for almost 400yrs but for the most part don’t comprehend or understand each other. The 2 differing figures lay in the same bed with the bed itself being a representation of the United States and both reading and resting their minds on 2 separate ideologies. One being a white supremacist mind set bent on maintaining their perceived rule over the land through oppression and the other a Pro-Black frame of thought focused on becoming conscious of one’s self, establishing a lost and dormant African culture and resisting the oppression coming from the contrasting culture.

A sad, yet historic day. Jennifer Pinckney’s heart wrenching letter to her late husband, Congressman Reverend Clementa Pinckney, who was one of the nine people killed by a racist attack at the Black Historic church in South Carolina, is trending. So is Presidents Obama’s speech who was called Reverend in Chief. Listen to the speech and you’ll understand why.
I think this is one of the most passionate and honest commencement speeches I’ve heard. A speech from the First Lady, from the heart, one everybody should see, hear or read. That’s why I posted the transcript here from the Whitehouse website.
Kids, aren’t they the cutest? Here are they are selling a serious message with all the cuteness in the world. #Ferguson Kids telling it like it is: Racism isn’t over but I am over Racism.
As a huge fan of the Daily show, I couldn’t wait to see what comedian Jessica Williams would add to the program. Well I didn’t have to wait long. She is just marvelously funny. It is probably because I am bias and because I am into Natural hair and I read a piece about the army banning Natural hairstyles that Operation Black is my all time favorite: The strength of our military is the brave men and women who serve in it. Those who are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to defend our country and Black women have hair. Check it out.
Not only is she a gorgeous inspiring natural, she is one of the best singers on planet earth and yet had the least votes on the Voice.
I took my wig off because I no longer wanted to apologize for who I am. There is not one woman in America who does not care about her hair, but we give it too much value. We deprive ourselves of things, we use it to destroy each other, we’ll look at a child and judge a mother and her sense of motherhood by the way the child’s hair looks. I am not going to traumatize my child about her hair. I want her to love her hair.
Last week the Black Bloggers community lost two wonderful souls who each left a remarkable imprint behind. Even though I didn’t know Karyn Washington or Domineque Banks it really doesn’t matter because when you see an out-pour like that on social media, you know that a person touched lives.
That’s a man! But that is a woman! said Usher. And there is a reason for that. This is a natural woman that we all should watch. Not just because she is natural but because as Adam says she is not from this world! He is talking about her voice. Listen to her last battle and watch her perform if you can do both at the same time.
