Perhaps Maya Angelou said it best when she told us, “You may write me down in history with your bitter, twisted lies, you may trod me in the very dirt, but still, like dust, I rise.” Sister, just as you have risen to achieve every other academic, career or social goal that you have set for yourself, you may also achieve your dream of a attaining a life partner with whom you can share the joys,...

a little intense. but I can relate to some. countrygramma: I wanted to share this for two reasons. First, these are tips that I’ve collected from fellow WOC in academia, and they’ve proven to be successful, so I thought I’d pass them on. Second, it is incredibly fucked up that we live in a world where WOC academics have to treasure strategic advice on how…

Moving On NOW
I was going through my Facebook today and I saw old messages from a lot of people I hadn’t talked to a long time. I defriended my Ex that ruined my life briefly until I came to my senses and saw that i could do better. But of course I saw his profile pic in my message box from old messages that we had exchanged and I was like DAMN. I guess it has really worked out with his new sorority girl...

bwlivingwell: Don’t you think that if black women stepped up their game, black men would respond appropriately? Black women can play their role in making the black man what he should be, we must never underestimate how we can transform the men by our actions! Black people are depending on black women! BWE writers have had occasion to put forward the question, why are black women responsible for...
I knew this entire year that I wanted to come home to Chicago and and live with my parents and find work and help out around here.

judesview: So I encourage you all to watch this clip. I’m very conflicted on this one. While I want to see more movies featuring Black actors and stories that normalize a Black experience, I’m not sure if I want this movie to come out.

Dreaming While Awake
Can I kiss you? I thought about it all night. That’s why I couldn’t sleep. I tossed and turned hoping no to wake you;but then again, I hoped to wake you so you would remember I was laying next to you. I hoped you would grab me and make love to me like I was going on a trip. I like the last time, before anything, the best. The memory burns into my retinas; but only when it is the last...
Dear wonderful person......
cosmiclove23: I secretly wish you were stalking me on tumblr;)
I thought this was what I wanted. Now I have it…I want something else. The one thing I can’t have. Why do we do these things to ourselves? Why do we chase shadows that can never be caught? Why do we try to trap water? I want to kiss “him”, not him…
