People are full of sh!t

It's funny how people who are the standard don't speak out against things like colorism and body shaming until it has a negative impact on them. How many of our lighter skinned brothers and sisters used to (and still do when they think no one is watching) laugh at jokes when they were aimed at darker skinned people? How many skinny and/or in shape women laugh at jokes when bigger women are the target?

But as soon as a darker skinned person brings up colorism, it's "oh in school people called me red bone or yellow." Or as soon as a plus size women brings up her being body shamed and how women our size are not the standard of beauty, skinnier and/or in shape women want to discuss how someone called them small or skinny or bean pole even. Now you want to discuss body shaming, sis?

This is why I think so many people are full of sh!t. If you are standard and have laughed at those of us who the world doesn't see as conventionally beautiful because of our shape, size, and skin tone, then you don't get to try to use our for real, every day struggle to talk over us.

A lot of you are just full of sh!t and hate for those who haven't been considered the standard to get any kind of recognition or shine. It's just like when "others" cry about reverse racism. There is no such thing. Hurt feelings do not equate to the absolute diminishing of a person as a human being because they don't fit what the world in general consider beautiful or attractive.

Black Film Review: Only 4 One Night

So last night/early this morning, I had the unfortunate chance to watch the movie Only 4 One Night, starring Brian White and Karrueche Tran. It was over an hour of my life that I can't get back. To make matters worse, I was in the kitchen pouring myself some libations when the opening credits were rolling so I didn't get to see that child molester, Chris Stokes, had directed this movie. I didn't find that out until after the fact. The premise goes a little something like this: Brian and Karrueche are happily married, the perfect couple. Karrueche's sister suffers a great loss, ends up in their guest room. Karrueche has to leave to go support her and Brian's son. The sister is left with the husband...and you know where this is going. But listen, the movie was basically a rip off of all the other movies about crazy women becoming obsessed with men after sex or just becoming plane ol' obsessed. If you've seen Obsessed, Single White Female, Hand that Rocks the C…

Coming soon: Tell Me No More

“He’s getting married!”
“What?”
“Jamie… he’s getting married,” I repeated frantically.
There was a wild look of panic in my eyes, I was sure. My whole world seemed to be crashing down around me. Nothing prepared me for the news that the man I still loved was about to walk down the aisle and make another woman his wife. Kay had to catch me in her arms before my legs gave out on me. For four years I’d been trying to come to grips with the fact that I’d let a good man get away.
Jamie and I had been together for almost two years before I’d cheated on him with my son’s father’s best friend. I’d met Jamie while I was head over heels in love with Aric. Even after finding out Aric was married, I held on to hope that he and I could be together. That was until his wife, Stephanie, tried to kill me and my son while I was pregnant with him. Even then, it took a while for me to see that Aric and I just weren’t meant to be together.
I finally saw that Jamie was the man I needed. Everything was g…

A Review (finally): Acrimony

I finally watched the movie Acrimony...

I want everyone who said that Taraji had no reason to be mad or snap to tell me why you feel that way?

Because listen...

That man cheated on her, used her money until she had not a dime left, had her carry the financial weight of their whole marriage for over twenty damn years. She begged and pleaded with this man to get a job and help her. Begged and pleaded...

This woman was tired. And YET, she worked and worked and worked in order for him to sit home and work on his craft.

Finally, after draining the damn life out of her, he gets on. His invention gets picked up, after she leaves him.

After she says enough is enough is when his ship comes sailing in. He then gets with another woman who knew someone who knew someone... She pulled some strings to get him put on.

THE SAME DAMN WOMAN HE CHEATED ON HER WITH ALL THOSE YEARS AGO!

He gives Taraji ten-million-dollars and buys her mama house back that she lost because of him.

All of this after over twent…
