President of the "Bitter Bitches" Club

I recently learned that I had been bestowed the honor of serving as President of the “Bitter Bitches” Club. Ironically the person that had taken on the responsibility of looking for the perfect candidate never bothered to let me know that I was being considered for such a prestigious position.

CRABS IN A BARREL

Black Women don’t support one another enough. There, I said it! Often we refer to it as the “Crabs In A Barrel” mindset which essentially means we fear helping another will somehow interfere with our ability to attain greatness.

Kavanaugh Should Not Be Destroyed by an Allegation from his Teenage Years

I do not believe Brett Kavanaugh should be stripped of an opportunity to be a United States Supreme Court Justice because of an allegation of sexual assault that occurred when he was a teenager.

We ARE NOT Burning Any Nikes In Our House, We Support Nike!

Gabby asked me last night what the big deal was with Colin Kaepernick when she saw me reading an article about the recent Nike ad.
