Prince Harry Was Right to Choose His Family.

This was not a choice without consequences, and it’s understandable that there is more than likely some hurt involved. When we choose to start a family that unit has to become a priority. Maybe one day there can be reconciliation in the family, but they will know Prince Harry is serious about the peace of his household. When if the royal family doesn’t like it…this is a move they must respect.

Meghan McCain Reminds Me of the Privilege of White Women.

We have to deal with Meghan McCain on our TV because she’s an entitled white girl that is standing on her dad’s legacy and some sort of validation of her voice not realizing she needs a voice of her own. Until she figures out how to have an adult conversation without throwing her privilege, I think she should refrain from speaking…though we know that’s not happening. The thing is Meghan McCain is the kind of political voice that reminds me a white woman is not my ally, and in many instances we could never explain to her why she’s a part of the political problem.

Come and Listen WITH Me.

Jodeci started with the best intentions in their song asking for a gorgeous woman to simply having a conversation to build to something greater.  I wonder what happens, however, after she comes and talks to him. Will he hear or will he listen?  Will he accept what she says even if he does not agree? Will he practice empathy?  Who knows.  If he does, he is one step closer to closing the gap between men and women that has plagued us for too long.

As Mardi Gras Approaches.

We love our city, its culture, and our celebrations. I shouldn’t have to consider staying home because I don’t want to encounter the tourist that in the name of fun crap on my place I call home. If you are having some kind of feud it would be best to find a non-violent way to resolve such, and please do not bring it with you to New Orleans. As Mardi Gras approaches I’m still excited and looking forward to a great season. I just hope natives enjoy themselves without the violence, and tourist refrain from bring violence with them and forgetting how to use a restroom.

Friend or FRIEND?

That did not work. So, I had to work to build communication.  I had to be honest while crying and screaming.  I had to bow out of a lot of great opportunities out of respect for a friendship.  It was not easy at all, but I would not change any of it. The experiences helped me to realize that effective friendships take work, and they are not just simple buttons on a webpage.

Our Part in This “Hot Girl Summer”.

They fulfill a fantasy that most of us will never experience in our lives.  I know it is much easier to criticize these women for their choices, but is it the best thing to do?  Does it help us as a sisterhood progress forward?  Consider supporting these women and helping them understand that we do not need their boobs, their thongs, or details about their sex life. We just need whoever they truly are to shine through.

New Orleans is Nonstop Music.

There are areas around the city of New Orleans that you may find to be a bit quieter, and you can drive into the city when you want your fix. Kenner is just down I-10, and you will find the residential area to be quieter. Visit is not even 20min away when you want to enjoy what New Orleans is culturally. Our music is not a fix, nor a fad…it’s a part of who we are. You are always welcomed to join us, but leave our soul intact.

We Watch More Than Drama.

Because we engage in so many different forms of screen time how we engage at home, at work, and outside of such can vary drastically. If you aren’t down to watch the next round of black women fight, and degrade each other it’s okay to try something new, or boldly continue watching the things that make you different, but just as much a black woman as the next.

Challenges Gone Wild and Stupid.

Playing games and experiencing challenges is expected in life.  It should happen.  Games should entertain. Challenges should improve.  That is not exactly the case with these social media challenges that focus more on the “dare” than “truth”.  Do not let these events on social media distract you from what is happening to those in our society that could eventually affect us.  Dares are no fun when society pays a negative price.

I felt like I had to be something that I was not, and I was not happy about that.  Now, I realized that being weird is a beautiful thing. I add value to this world. I add culture to this world. I add awesomeness.  So thank you, Issa, for opening Pandora’s Box.  We promise we will make weird beautiful.
