crying-gif-17We live our lives and learn from the things we go through, life has a crazy way of teaching you how to deal with certain situations, and casting an unprecedented amount of pressure on you, forcing you to grow up. Our society, expects you to go through life never showing how you feel because showing emotion is seen as a weakness, and no human is ever allowed to be weak?

#ShadesOfBlack: Two tone and loving it

Originally posted on Brain & Brain:

I always wondered why people would make a fuss about the complexion of others. I started realising just how important a role complexion and tone played in our society the moment I started dating outside my race. It was never from him, but always from other people. “You’re beautiful for a black girl” or “You’re beautiful for a dark skinned women” were often…

Just do you

We live in an era where people are so quick to point fingers at another person and throw labels on that person and fail to look at our lives and point out the faults in it, as loudly as we do about the faults in the lives of others.

She was once so self destructive.

How a mere scar can make her travel so far back in time and pain.

It’s a scar. Nothing more. Nothing less. No story behind it..” Are the words she uttered when he asked her about the marks on her wrists.

He’d never noticed it before today but something about her spirit was undeniably intense and completely broken.

She had no way of telling him that the marks…

What’s in a word? Obviously a lot as far as “nigger” is concerned. The media and politicians say “ban it” but how impossible is it to make the world’s most dangerous word disappear from existence? And do we really know what it means? Hakim Green of Channel Live fame walks us through this black word’s history, it’s etymology, and explains why this word will never go away, and why we should embrace and cherish rather than shun it. Also, Sean C. and L.V. talk their musical history and why we should cop their new album ‘Loud Dreams’ for only $Free Ninety Nine. My lips is like an oowop as I start to spray it.

Why should “the other woman” leave your boyfriend alone?

Why should “the other woman” leave your boyfriend alone?

I’m so tired of people telling others that men only cheat physically and that women cheat emotionally like we’re both from entirely different species.

I saw a conversation between two women on twitter, that stated that other women must stop speaking to and entertaining taken men, but if a woman is entertaining a man, solely because of the emotion she feels is she wrong? We’re taught to be so…

Soulmates

I’ve heard so many explanations about what a soul mate is, I’ve had people explain it to me and I’ve often left with more questions than what I had before I spoke to them.

People make love seem like it’s supposed to be this constant uphill battle, like happiness is a lifetime war and that tears are an expectant part of it, but if love is so beautiful, why then do humans make it seem like it’s a…
