Actress Thandie Newton discussing coming to terms with her identity at TedGlobal 2011. This is why it’s so important for women to be aware, awake and alert so their self-image and self-esteem are firmly rooted. It impacts every relationship – especially the most important one: with ourselves.

Ken & Barbie dolls!
It’s hard to believe how quickly the year has flown by. It’s already the One Year anniversary of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. I’m making observations with regards to how women can use their Charm Offensive to position themselves for higher-caliber marriages and business relationships.

Continuing our discussion from February – by supporting those who are supportive of you – we’ve got some new commercials that show black women in a positive light. (Don’t miss When Advertisers Positively Acknowledge Black Women #1.) Which is not the same thing as pandering or being ‘ironic’ for the sake of attention, paternalism or worse! The brands do need to label their ads better so we can find them by a simple SEO search.
Much of the future of advertising has to take online viewership into greater consideration. Yes, brands that means you!

Victim or Victimhood Peddler?
Puffy or Not Is Ashley Judd The Real Face Of Sexism?
Poor Ashley is having a very public moment. Maybe she’s going through something privately that’s making her a little extra-sensitive these days. I can’t imagine why she’d take the time to write an entire essay about what she purports is a ra-ra sisterhood stance combating misogyny and body-shaming if she’s as rooted as she claims:
The only thing that matters is how I feel about myself, my personal integrity, and my relationship with my Creator.
Now that television outlets have picked up on the story this is becoming a huge media circus going into Week Two – amongst those who have time to pay attention. Some people would have women believing we’re lesser-than, oppressed and victims under-siege with no recourse.
This time what we need to reassess and discard isn’t part of Blackistan Thought Propaganda but a lopsided, distorted feminist ideology. To me all of her righteous indignation reads more like self-indulgent posturing that’s an emotional response for not being considered a Sexy Young Thang anymore.
**Begins crocodile tears and a pout.

Just know when I was writing this I was watching Maya Rudolf on the Ellen Show. Tooo funneee. I was about to do a news and social media break because of the increasingly irritating “controversy” over Ann Romney being a Stay At Home Mother and some “feminist” brou-ha-ha which had my eyes glazing over. Class envy is such a wasted energy. Using poor women to argue a counterpoint is WRONG. The Talking Heads don’t care and some people voted against their self-interests and are suffering the consequences. Ann & Mitt are BILLIONAIRES y’all! They’re very, very rich and have lots and lots of privilege. NEXT!
There’s nothing stopping any woman from positioning herself to be in a similar situation. LIVING WELL. VERY WELL.
Back to the matter at hand. Continue reading “See How Fast Blackistan Turned On Trayvon’s Mama Sybrina Fulton?”
One of my readers sent me a link to an interview at Radar Online with an African-American Royal back in January. I posted it to the blog’s Twitter and Facebook accounts but realize it should be bumped to post level for those of you who missed it. Baroness Monica von Neumann resides in Los Angeles after the death of her husband, Baron John von Neumann. I’ve excerpted a portion of the interview but you should read it in its entirety at their site. She’s positioning her company as a lifestyle brand for luxury goods.

Alrighty, after some of the recent social upheaval and blogger dust-ups my planned forum posting schedule is slowly being integrated. Finally! I’m with those of you who are like-minded enough like this >_< to keep it moving. We’ll continue sharing and exchanging affirming and practical information we can all apply offline as we continue on our life’s journey.
One of the most often asked questions women have is how to best approach men. Well, my reply is you don’t! Women Must Not Be The Aggressor. Men have to take initiative, otherwise the burden of pacing a relationship will fall to you. Don’t get locked up behind bars in “Superwoman” jail. Be free!
