“I Have A Thing For Black Girls”: The Fine Line Between Being Adored And Racially Festishized

I gleefully ran my hands up his bare chest; his washboard abs made it easy to forgive his Justin Beiber- hairstyle. He traced his lips up the side of my neck, gently tugged on my earlobe with his teeth and whispered into my ear, “I love your skin.” Supreeth wasn’t the first one to tell me this; previous suitors had told me numerous times that my skin feels like butter– a true testament to my moisturizing regimen. At least this is what I thought Supreeth…

To Forgive Or Not To Forgive: Do Cheaters Really Deserve A Second Chance?

Shutterstock

When commuting to and from work on crowded trains, it’s hard not to overhear other people’s conversations. One in particular this morning that caught my attention was between two women contemplating if woman #1 should take back her man, whom she apparently discovered had cheated on her. Woman #1 was clearly hurt and confused and had no idea what she should do. Woman #2, however, didn’t hesitate to give #1 her advice: give him another chance. When…

White Woman Suing Over Black Sperm Loses Legal Battle

Last year, many of us found ourselves taken with the story of the White lesbian couple who were suing the Midwest Sperm Bank for giving them the wrong specimen. You may remember that though the couple asked for sperm from a White, male donor, they received a sperm from a Black man. And their daughter Payton is biracial.

The sperm bank issued the women a full refund for the six vials but Jennifer Cramblett, the woman…

http://www.timefrozen.com/

There's a certain stereotype that follows men of color collectively, wherever they go, no matter what they do. It's the notion that they're deadbeats, thugs or just simply not that involved in their community.

DeVaughn Ward and Pastor AJ Johnson know these stereotypes all too well, so they planned an event that puts those notions to shame — just in time for the first day of school. After seeing a group of men…

Uncle Luke Critiques The Black Community: “We Are So Easily Influenced”

I know, I know. Former rapper Luther Campbell, the man who brought us such vulgar classics as “Me So Horny” and who, along with the other members of 2 Live Crew, once professed to be “As Nasty As They Wanna Be” isn’t exactly the staple of the community one would turn to in times of socio-political and economic strife for answers. But every now and then you have to separate the man from the message. Admittedly, I can’t say for sure if this is one of…

Anthony Horowitz, the latest author behind the debonair, crime-fighting, gadget-wielding super-spy that is James Bond, thinks fan favorite Idris Elba wouldn’t be the right person to take on the icon.

“Sometimes I Can’t Breathe”: Cameroonian Women Speak Out Against “Breast Ironing” Custom (VIDEO)

In Cameroon, “breast ironing” is a custom in which various objects are heated and placed upon the budding breasts of a pre-teen girl in an attempt to halt development and in turn make her less attractive to men.

The Response to Lenny Kravitz's Wardrobe Malfunction Reveals Our Sexist Double Standards (VIDEO)

When most women have wardrobe malfunctions, they're supposed to respond by tittering adorably, slipping the offending body part back into its garment and apologizing, because they're ladies and that's what ladies are supposed to do.

If you're a dude and a ball or two happens to slip out of your gym shorts, you throw your head back in laughter and let your junk roam wild and free. That applies doubly if you're…
