Scarves...lawd

I've had my hair natural off and on since I was a kid. I hate beauty shops so I even rocked some extensions for years just to NOT step foot in a salon. In the brief moment I had a relaxer, I remember the whole wrappin' your hair deal.

Ok. I get it.

But why do ya'll need to keep your head wrapped up at the grocery store, the mall, at the restaurant, etc. It looks awful. Maybe I'm ol' school. Maybe I'm used to being around women that will cut the grass in full make-up (my mom...I didn't get that...but...). Now, you will see me out in sweats, no make up and flip flops but damn.

My daughter does that crap and I tell her how bad it looks all the time. She'll say...yeah...I know but there she goes.

Sistas...take the scarves off. Ugh....

Confessions of a Recovering Misogynist" by Kevin Powell

In the past few weeks, I've had the opportunity to have very brief conversations with Kevin Powell. Its very interesting to speak with someone with similar passions for community service. As someone who has been very transparent on her blog, I find this essay by Kevin refreshing. I just happen to see this on Facebook as someone posted it many months ago.
Thanks KP.


I AM A SEXIST MALE.

I take no great pride in saying this, I am merely stating a fact. It is not that I was born this way-rather, I was born into this male-dominated society, and consequently, from the very moment I began forming thoughts, they formed in a decidedly male-centered way. My "education" at home with my mother, at school, on my neighborhood playgrounds, and at church, all placed males in the middle of the universe. My digestion of the 1970s American popular culture in the form of television, film, ads, and music only added to my training, so that by as early as age nine or ten I saw females, includ…

Social Media: Keeping it Real

Social Media is an interesting creature. ONLINE: We're all so brilliant. We're all so healthy. We all are so religious. We love our mothers. We are perfect parents. Well, I'm here to tell ya, not me. I'm flawed. I'm quirky. I don't like to go to places where there's a lot of people. Quiet is cool. Me and God fight. Me and my daughter just had a horrible two years but we're back being where we should be. I've been physically unhealthy for the past two years and it was causing some depression. I couldn't figure it out. I don't like to be  deep, every damn day. I know what I know and there's a whole lotta stuff I'm clueless about. I'm a patient friend but I can shut you out without reason. I'm working on me.

 I think Social Media is missing a dose of realness and regular. I'm down for folks working to obtain their goals and doing it out loud. I get it. I know that it can help others. I'm just con…
