Why do we hate Black hair?

I read a post on Feministing.com today that made my blood boil.  The post, entitled “Hating black hair starts young, just ask Blue Ivy Carter”, gave voice to everything I’d been thinking about the people who’ve taken to the internet rah-rah’ing about a baby’s kinky, curly, fuzzy hair, taking shots at both the parents AND … Continue reading

A Blog a Day for 30 Days – Day 1

I’ve decided to participate in a challenge that is going to require me to write a blog per day for 30 days.  In theory this isn’t difficult.  There are prompts that tell me exactly what to focus on each day, but… still.  Considering that I have barely blogged at all over the last year and … Continue reading

And so it begins…

I suppose I should start off by telling you all about what this blog promises to be.  But… here’s the thing — this time around, I’m not making ANY promises.
