  • Dark Skin, Light Skin, Straight Hair, Nappy Hair: Do Black Men Reinforce A Color Caste System For Wo

    in Women

    Viola Davis, last nights Emmy winner for Best Actress In Dramatic Series, gave a historic dramatic speech in which she quoted Harriet Tubman, and thanked the writers and actresses that enabled her to "cross the line" and win an honor formerly accessible only to white women. Previously, when actress Lupita Nyong'o won an Oscar for her role in Twelve Years A Slave, she expressed many of the same sentiments. Is color and hair texture still an issue when it comes to defining womanhood? In chapter four of The Female Solution we discuss the politics behind how women define themselves. It comes down to a battle of genetics. Whose physical traits represent the good people, the smart people, the pretty people? We know of the white doll/ black doll experiment, in which little black girls, when given a choice, selected the white doll as the one that was good, smart, and pretty, and said the black doll was bad, dumb and ugly. How do we talk about that painful reality in African American culture, so we can face and correct the widespread, self-perpetuated color caste system that leaves so many African Americans emotionally scarred?

    "The psychic distance between love and hate could be the mechanical difference between a smile and a sneer, or it could be the journey of a nervous impulse form the depths of one’s brain to the tip of one’s toe.  But this impulse in its path through North america nerves may, if it is honest, find the passage disputed: may find the leap form the fiber of hate to that of love too taxing on its meager store energy—and so the long trip back may never be completed, may end in reconnaissance, a compromises, and then a lie..... "

    This myth of the creation of the white race, called “Yacub’s History’” is an inversion of the racial death-wish of American Negroes today.  Quite simply, many Negroes believe, as the principle of assimilation into white America implies, that the race problem in America cannot be settled until all traces of the black race are eliminated.  Toward this end, many Negroes loathe the very idea of two very dark Negroes mating.  The children, they say, will come out ugly. What they mean is that the children are sure to be black, and this is not desirable.  What they mean is that the children are sure to be black, and this is not desirable.  From the widespread use of cosmetics to bleach the black out of one’s skin and other concoctions to take Africa out of one’s hair, to the extreme, restored to by more  Negroes than one might wash to believe, of undergoing nose thinning and lip-clipping operations, the racial death-wish of american Negroes—Yacub’s goal—takes its terrible toll. What has been happening for the past four hundred years is that the white man, through his access to black women. has been pumping his and genes of the blacks—i.e., has been fulfilling Yacub’s plan and accelerating the Negroes on death-wish."

  • Crappy Days! Also known as Bad Hair Days!

    in Lifestyle

    Do you have days that feel like you shouldn't get out of bed?  Does your hair look bad all day because you don't really care to look good for someone else.  How often do we get caught in the illusion of pleasing others above our selves.  
    Is it selfish to want to have something that makes your life better?  Is it selfish to take time away from others to learn something new that will improve your life and another's life?  Then, call me selfish!!!!  

    I don't like crappy days of following work responsibilities and being bored and not caring about what my hair looks like! 
    Yes, give me happiness, that comes from creating values rather than just producing a value that already exists, so I can share it with another as love and get the feeling of pride!  You deserve this too!

    Yep, call me selfish!!!

    Why 70% of Women Over 40 need Zinc

    in Health

    Join Parttners in Health and Biz talk show host Gail Dixon as we discuss Zinc, the mineral that 70% of women over the age of 40 don't get enough of.

    Right now is the most important time to correct a shortfall. The reason? Zinc helps ward off winter illness. So if you have a deficiency you're more likely to get sick.

    Almost all women go undiagnosed because symptoms of a shortfall, including fatigue, hair loss and appetite changes are so vague and common that doctors often fail to make the connection to zinc.

    11/24/15 - One Eyed Homeless woman gives truthful interview about life

    in Politics Conservative

    You see them all the time.  Homeless people, wandering downtown, hanging around convenience stores or busy intersections panhandling for anything...money, food, a ride.  I met Linda, a 52 year old, one-eyed homeless woman in Waco, TX.  At first, she just asked me if I could help by giving her a little money..."anything you can spare would be appreciated."  So, I reached in my pocket and pulled out some cash and gave her a couple of dollars.  But before I did, I wanted to know a little about her life..."How did you come to be here?" I asked.  She told me of her daily challenges and fearful nights living in the streets of Waco.  She explained what happened to her and how she lost her eye.  "I was sleeping, and someone swung at me with an ax," she said, as she pulled back her cap and hair, to reveal the damage to her skull.  She's bouncing from place to place...one homeless shelter to another.  One convenience store to another.  I went in to pay for gas and as I was walking back to pump gas, she asked me if I could give her a ride.  I agreed on one condition, that she would allow me to record her story during our drive.  Tonight, I'll air she short interview.  Call ins welcome.
