Why Are You Calling Her the ‘B’ Word?

The second letter of the alphabet ‘B’ is usually the connotative term that is attached to women all the time. While I know that we might want to insert- bad, brilliant, bodacious and other adjectives that can easily describe a take charge woman, society sometimes invokes its own word.  Bitch.  Yep.  Put soap in my […]

Why He Can’t Tell You How He Feels

Valentine’s Day is near! In the next few days, women all over the world will be inundated with gifts of love and affirmation. Flowers, cards, poems and songs are sure to melt hearts, bring smiles, and tears of joy. Oh, the emotions! Over the years, men have expressed their feelings/emotions to women through many different […]

The 45th President of the United States Has Spoken

For my brothers and sisters who boycotted Donald Trump’s Inauguration, my instant analysis: Donald J. Trump, now the 45th President of the United States, shunned grandiloquence or complex sentences for simple (very) and compound sentences that heralded a populist tone. Trump twice referenced struggling families in the inner cities, rusted out factories in the Midwest […]

Bishop Eddie Long, the Black Church and Pedophilia

News that Bishop Eddie Long died yesterday inspired one of the most bitterly divided timelines that I have seen from many of my Black Facebook friends. Some, the majority from the anecdotal evidence I observed, invoked the “only God can judge” mantra and preached forgiveness of his sins. Others, the minority but a very passionate […]

Boy Bands and Brotherhood

StreetCred. That rite of passage every young man seeks.  Some find it in membership in fraternities (All the NUPES say YO!). Others find it in sports, gangs and other affiliations. However, let’s think back to the 80’s and 90’s when the Boy Bands were significant for many young men.  You remember them- New Kids On The […]

President-Elect Donald Trump May Be the Greatest Pimp Since Goldie

I got up early to do some pleasure reading and it occurred to me that since Donald Trump won last month, many of his pundit surrogates have suggested that what Clinton supporters and Trump opponents (not necessarily the same) missed while focusing on Trump’s “deplorable” rhetoric about race, religion and gender, that most who supported […]

Can America Only Take One Socially Conscious Athlete?

The trending topic for the last couple of day is Colin Kaepernick. He refused to stand for the national anthem in a preseason game this past weekend. That was followed by a statement from the 49’ers quarterback: “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses […]

Farewell Sweet Summer

I’m taking a blog break next week. It’s the official last full week of summer. I’m looking forward to cooler temps, and the leaf color change on the many trees on our property. It’s been a hot one this year, and I’m ready to open up the windows and enjoy those cool evening breezes. Next […]

Pastalicious

If you’re not allergic to nuts, this recipe will have you shouting. I planned to write something else for this week’s blog. However, last week the cooking class at our clinic made this dish and well, I had to share it with you. Cashews have become one of my favorite nuts. They’re actually the kidney […]

Armed for the Battle

Let’s face it, sending your children  into group learning settings – daycare, preschool, elementary school and high school – can expose them to LOTS of communicable germs. It can feel like they’re in the middle of a battle! If you want your children to make it through the upcoming academic year as winners, here are […]
