    Black Money Business Jobs : 80 percent of black kids begin their adult lives with no assets whatsoever

    Part of the problem is the vast majority of blk folk want to streak out @ 18 to prove something. Some of it is parents envying their own seed by and withholding resources and money- "If I had to struggle, why shouldn't you?!? I don't know too many nonblacks leaving home @ 18. Five or six extra...

    Beauty - Hair Care - Fashion : Confession - I'm So Tired of Fighting with My Natural Hair!

    Instead of washing it with shampoo every time, which strips the hair of essential oils, you "wash"t with conditioner only. It can be braided, loose or whatever. But yes, I washed out that press I had all last week. I don't post mahvelous pics of myself nor my hair, cuz frankly, I've given up on...

    Beauty - Hair Care - Fashion : Confession - I'm So Tired of Fighting with My Natural Hair!

    Chile, be happy your hair holds a strong curl. I prefer to wash twice a week and co-wash in between... so yeah, it's freshly washed before twisting. Before I twisted I apply virgin olive oil throughout... some blue magic every other day and leave-in conditioner everyday after wetting it. I've...

    Beauty - Hair Care - Fashion : Confession - I'm So Tired of Fighting with My Natural Hair!

    Great advice. I'm now into the flower hair pins and banana clips. Here they are co-washed, although it has a tad more volume when dry. I'm seriously thinking of braiding in some thick hair or even yarn for more volume, so I can style them as opposed to just wearing them down. I have a light...

    Black Relationships : Would you personally continue dealing with a person who....

    He seems insecure and controlling... with too much time on his hands. Him ignoring you is hisway of telling you to get in line (his line) or else, no convo for you. Nip it in the bud or just move on.

    Beauty - Hair Care - Fashion : Confession - I'm So Tired of Fighting with My Natural Hair!

    Maybe so... my hair is much finer in the back (3c), and up front it's way more kinky... trying to pull it back into a ponytail makes my hair look like a mushroom from the front, unless it's wet/damp before I pull it back. I know for a fact that I'd be much more satisfied if it was at least...

    Beauty - Hair Care - Fashion : Confession - I'm So Tired of Fighting with My Natural Hair!

    Don't give up and give in to temptation! I wished like crazy my hair were more kinky, like... 4c kinky. Although I am a 4a/3c, my hair type sucks monkey balls, LOL. In it's kinky state, it's too thin to do all the schnazzy natural styles and big curly blown-out looking afros... when flat ironed...

    Black Spirituality Religion : Sleep Paralysis

    Y'all are making me want to sleep with one eye open. I've had experiences where I'd wake up suddenly while reaching out for something... or when asleep, my arms would just flail about, aimlessly. Weird.

    Black People : The Indian Slave Owner

    We need to keep in mind that some NA tribes that were rumored to have harbored slaves, actually lived in peace with Black slaves. The illusion of a slave/master relationship is what kept many white slave owners at bay.

    Black People : Downlow commercial by Burger-King aired during Raiders game

    But, also, if you hadn't noticed, in the beginning, there was a BM scurrying to catch up with the other marching men (symbolic of BM lagging behind in society). Then, later, a Hispanic-looking construction worker (stereotypical job) got punched in the stomach. All the while, the Asian man breaks...

    Black People : Rape of women and children in America

    You have a point, but I see it this way... men rarely correct their male peer's malicious behavior towards women... cuz that would mean the corrected men stand a chance of a better/equal supply of sex (and other pleasantries) from women. I think, of many reasons, this is why men let things ride...

    Black People : Stop Creating Slaves In Your Home!

    Wrong. I have been a parent for 13 years. Also, what makes people think the term "rod" doesn't mean the "rod" of discipline in forms other than beatings? Discipline, understanding, communication, boundaries, etc.?

    Black People : Dad loses Cool on School Bus

    Why is the boy's mother mad? He shouldn't have been harassing a girl. Throwing condoms on her head? Heck nawl. I bet the mom was a wee bit jealous cuz she probably doesn't have a father figure to steer her unruly son in the right direction. Pretending to be upset, LOL. She on camera looking...
