Women. Society. Success.

March 9, 2012


The picture of a successful man or woman varies between individuals, cultures, ethnicities, races and income level. I’d say that as a collective group, we have a very colorful idea of what success means and rightfully so. We all have our different paths and we must all play our role in society. Yet, I believe our media-forged […]

Re-Socialize Yourself. Africa is a continent.

February 27, 2012


I thought it was obvious. I really did. Africa is a continent akin to North America and Europe. It seems that in our culture we take this fact for granted. And I mean a lot. The cast of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta recently visited South Africa. Yet each time I tune in, one of […]

Can I? These are lies. Garbage. Trash. Made up narratives to make black women a peripheral statement in the dialogue of society. And […]

Komen for the Cure and Planned Parenthood fiasco roused passionate debate around the country regarding a woman’s right to choose. This week, changes to the White House’s Affordable Care Act has once again pushed the debate […]

[Insert Sound Bite Here]

February 2, 2012


Politics is truly a game of sound bites and quotes. How fast can you get this bite to spread through social media? What can I say that means nothing but will get people on board? Isn’t that what politics is today a game of lies, half-truths and promises. After debates and official addresses, Facebook and […]
