Vlog: Accountability and Interracial Dating

Comments

  1. Ok..first off, I definitely got my after work morning laugh off of that!
    And that's definitely an interesting and very observant point. There it is. Non-black men and women who date/marry black men and women probably lack that attention to detail. Either because they just don't know or don't care. I'd say its a combination of both.

  2. LMAO! This is funny! True though, black hair takes more maintenance and generally It's only other blacks that notice that little attention to detail, especially when it looks messed up. And they are ALL about the hairlines!!! Damn, don't know any other people more into hair than black people though. This did make me laugh :-)

  3. See, I am self-conscious about my hairline and for the longest I always blamed the sistas for all the bald brothers in the world. So I will reluctantly avoid that subject.

    But I will add that you are hella funny with the jokes. Had me over here cracking up.

  4. lmaoooo @ The bad hair lines on dudes who date non-black women. Hysterical!

    I agree.... that's the beauty of being with a black man. Certain things you just don't have to explain. ;-)

  6. You are ten kinds of crazy! I can't say that I've noticed the fucked up hairline/white woman combo, but what I have seen is the 9 times out of 10, when you see a black man with a white woman, he ain't no black man worth having, ESPECIALLY if he's been runnin' up in that bedraggled lookin-chipped-tooth-having-no-ass-titties-to-her-knee-caps-stringy-haired-white woman. I mean, I'm just saying. What you need to get on the brothers for is having their kids looking all jacked up because White Sally doesn't know how to do black hair. PLEASE -- and Mr. Black Man with the White Woman, stop sending your White Sally over to me to ask me what I use on my kids hair or if I can teach her (*smh*) to do hair. I'mma stab you in your eye!

    *whew* I had to let that out.

2018: A Year Without Fear

I used to make these lofty, resolution goals each year. The older I got, the grander my ideas became. That is until I reached the age of 30 and my entire life shifted.

At the time, I was divorced, living totally on my own, trying to rebuild myself financially and trying to figure out my next move toward happiness. That was at the time I started this blog.... which started out as my chronicling the dating and mating of a 30 something divorcee' in the South's Largest Metropolis. I was trying to date. I was trying to establish myself financially. And I was trying to find my purpose.

So much has changed in the almost 9 years since I started this blog. I've traveled alone. I gained and lost friends. I got into a Ph.D. program. I got re-married. I lost my mother, my best friend.... not to mention my uncle, cousin, and aunt. I gained a sweet baby girl.  I went from getting my bliss.... to trying to balance that bliss with my own life..... Yet in trying to find the balance, I alw…

Frat Boys, Toxic Masculinity and the #METOO Movement

(scene from Spike Lee's famous School Daze)

A few weeks ago, my sorority held its national convention on New Orleans. Coincidently, another fraternity was also holding their national convention in New Orleans. Naturally, the jokes, mostly in jest, played upon the fact that these two groups, full of single, attractive and smart folks would be "on the prowl" and looking to "hook up" in the city known for its strong drinks, Southern heat, and hospitality. It was all jokes until nastiness decided to rear its ugly head.

You had men in the other fraternity sexually harassing and being obscene to my sorority sisters who just wanted to have fun and handle the business of the sorority (and network.. and yes.. meet men in a somewhat safe space).  There were stories of men groping women. Men saying disgusting things and then being like "Well fuck you then" if women rejected them. You would HOPE and think that college-educated men wouldn't act this way.

But..…

The Ides of Birthdays

My 39th birthday is in two weeks.
*sigh*
You know, I feel like I write the same type of blog around my birthday every year. I get extremely introspective and pensive about the whole thing. But this is my last year of my 30s and I am feeling all of the feelings that have ever and could be felt. I hate trying to bring this up to folks.. who are always wanting to remind you of "well.. you got this.. you got that...". As if you haven't dealt with depression long enough to realize it doesn't matter what you have... if one piece is missing.. it throws it all off.
While yesterday was the 3rd anniversary of my mom's passing, I realized she wouldn't be here for my 40th. That was a hard pill to swallow. I thought for sure we'd be celebrating a lot that year... my Ph.D... a baby... a big, fancy car..... all of that. I only have one of those things so far but still... I was hoping that having her hold on at least until then would be the icing on my cake.
My life feels…
