I want to use a few examples from recent media chatter to discuss the perils of women giving men passes for EVERYTHING!!! Men do NOT settle! Men go after jobs and partners they don’t deserve and are unqualified for ALL THE TIME. Extreme social conditioning amongst dysfunctional blacks browbeat black women into accepting […]

Let's Remind Women Of Their Economic Clout: Put A Nice Black Lady On The $20

Great news!

Women On 20s wants an esteemed woman on paper currency, starting with a newly-issued $20 bill. It ties into the anniversary of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. While there are certain undeniable hiccups with the implementation and timeline of that legislation working for all […]

The Process Of Building Faith, Hope, Love & Trust

Thank you to the awesome women who’ve connected via social media. So many reached out to offer kind words, encouragement and practical solutions when I wrote about an issue I’m trying to resolve.

I ignored jumping too deeply into the feeding frenzy that resulted from the poison arrow lobbed at black women by the quack scientist and once-esteemed rag Psycho(logy) Today. They aimed..and missed! “We apologize…” so says, Editor-In-Chief Kaja Perina. Don’t you just feel the remorse? Nope? Me either! Well..this isn’t an Anita Baker song, so […]

How Serious Are You About Uplifting Black Women?

We interrupt this regularly scheduled blog post to take a moment to ask a serious question:
