Check out this new web series from MademeNoire.com titled, “I Always Wanted To Ask: Interracial Dating,” which covers the topic of interracial dating between white women and black men.
Six women participated in the open discussion. Three women from the staff of TheFrisky.com (all white women) and three women from MadameNoire.com (all black women) asked specific questions they’d always wanted to know about each other’s race.
Some of the questions covered in the discussion include:
1. Are white women trophies for black men?
2. Are black women jealous of white women?
3. Why do black women get so angry when they see a black man with a white woman?
Check out this article written by Thyblackman.com’s Yolanda Spivey, who has been looking for work in the insurance industry for the last two years, but has not received any job offers.
Out of frustration and curiosity, Spivey decided to conduct a little experiment. Yolanda, a college educated black woman with 10 years of work experience in the insurance industry, decided to pose as a white woman by changing the name on her resume to Bianca White, just to see if employers would respond differently.
You’ll be shocked and amazed by what Ms. Spivey found out.
On Wednesday, NFL Detroit Lions linebacker Justin Durant weighed in on the ongoing controversy surrounding Chick-fil-A and the restaurant owner’s public opposition to gay marriage.
The NFL baller ended up saying in so many words that he would still support Chick-fil-A (because of their tasty chicken sandwiches) even if they came out in support of slavery.
Durant took to his Twitter account yesterday and asked his followers “what happened with Chick-fil-A?”
As several replies came pouring in, Durant expressed his disbelief that there was any controversy at all.
The internet and social media networks have been buzzing over the last 8 hours with comments about Olympic gold medal gymnast Gabby Douglas. Some comments were very positive and some were negative.
After scanning through some of the negative comments, we noticed that many were coming from African-American women criticizing Gabby’s hair.
Why would anyone especially African American women criticize the second female African- American U.S. gymnast to ever make the Olympic team, and the first African-American Olympic gymnast (male or female) to win gold in gymnastics’ biggest prize, the women’s all-around title?
In defense of Douglas, Yahoo!Shine’s Senior Editor Lylah M. Alphonse wrote:
Check out this open discussion video from Lydia Cotton, a woman who has made quite a name for herself for creating and posting relationship/self-help videos on Youtube.
In this video, Lydia Cotton discusses the fact that 72% of black women are single mothers. She also talks about movies like “Waiting to Exhale,” where it appears that women enjoy the grief of complaining about the men that they are with.
Cotton calls for accountability on the part of women who continuously find themselves in relationships with deadbeats.
She says that “no percentage of these women” (single mothers) got pregnant by themselves. She says that it doesn’t make sense for a woman to sleep with a man who is not worth having s*x with and then complain that the man is not a good father to her child.
Cotton says that if you’re choosing the people you’re having s*x with, and they all end up being terrible fathers, what does that say about you?
In her article, Randall, a Harvard graduate, notes that four out of five black women are seriously overweight. She also notes that one out of four middle-aged black women has diabetes.
Randall feels that black America needs a “body-culture revolution.” Why? Because too many experts who are involved in the discussion of obesity don’t understand something crucial about black women and fat: many black women are fat because we want to be.
