    Isis Brantley update on Texas Natural Hair Laws:


    Isis Brantley, a Dallas hair-braiding salon owner, with the help of the Institute for Justice, filed the federal lawsuit against Texas in 2013. It argued that she was being forced to jump through unnecessary hoops just to receive the state-mandated license. Brantley felt that the requirements were geared toward and created for barbers, and since she is a hair-braiding stylist, the laws should not have applied to her—or they needed to be tweaked for her specific profession.

    "Beauty Enhancers, Ugly Outcomes"

    in Entertainment

    Make-up, weave, hair color, natural hair, braids, butt implants, breast implants, face lifts, etc...OMG what is the BIG deal about  enhancing beauty? Is it really a jealousy that's embedded in the minds of people that can't afford to make modifications that truly enhance beauty or is there truly a concern about why we do what we do to look BEST? Perhaps the cheapest form of enhancements that will allow one to act and feel their best is an attitude adjustment.

    I'm opening the airways today and speaking on beauty, ugly, ratchet, ignorance and all the other attributes that in many ways alter our appearance. What are your thoughts?

    Join me today LIVE at at the noon hour as I bring it! Simply call in at 646.200.0995 to be a part of my LIVE studio audience!

    Creamy Crack or Kinky Coils... Let's Talk Hair

    in Lifestyle

    Curves In 3D Talks Hair.... Relaxed, Natural, Coils, Locs, Weaved, Braids, Long, Short, Nappy or Straight. What style defines you? We are talking hair tonight so the show can be straight curly (pun intended).  There are many thoughts about the BLACK woman and hair floating out there....

    She a fake babee... said of those who are natural to the weave queens......

    She is too urban... said of those who wear weave to the Natural sistas......

    We will be discussing it All this Thursday night October 30, 2014... Bring your thoughts, your views and your hair.... We are talking hair DIVAS! 

     “Why don’t you wear your hair natural?”  

    First, please don’t think that how Black women wear their hair reflects the acceptance or rejection of their Blackness. There are other reasons: financial, medical or just personal choice. It is not always an attempt to assimilate to white standards of beauty. Psychological tests show people most trust people who look like them. If that means wearing my hair a certain way in order to continue to provide for my family, there is no contest. I will march into a pharmacy or beauty-supply store and proudly ask, “Relaxers are down which aisle?”

    It's ALL about the hair.... A Womans CROWN and GLORY!  You may leave a comment or join us for the show at 9pm est.

    in Religion

    STEVE MORNINGCHILD, Keeper of Bigfoot's Pipe.

    Omikwoneeo Awasis a/k/a STEVE MORNINGCHILD: "Greetings from the neeheeyawuk [cree] in the fictional province of Saskatchewan in the fictional country of Canada"

    There's a lot of folklore and stories about the round dance of the Plains Cree. Also called the tea dance and braid bundle dance, the question is whether it is a fairly modern part of Aboriginal celebrations or as ancient as time itself.

    The first known round dances took place in a long lodge called nanapawnikamovikamik, or "night singing tipi," as part of small tribal camp gatherings.

    The braids of deceased relatives, kept in sacred bundles, were central to the meaning of the round dance ceremonies, which also included pipe, food and cloth offerings for the spirits of the dead.

    Special honor songs were sung and prayers offered as the drums were passed through the sweetgrass smoke. A young sappling was set up in the centre of the lodge to be hung with cloth offerings, and a large stone is placed at its base.
