Yesterday, the US Supreme Court decided that Michigan could do away with considering race in college admissions. There are arguments to be had on either side and I think that as African Americans we need to be careful not to react without knowing all the facts. That said, what alarmed me the most was the […]

  I was walking to the train a few days ago to begin my morning commute when I walked past a young lady who I would say was dressed nicely. I didn’t say anything to her, I didn’t give her any forward looks, but for some reason she did everything in her power to never […]

I always found this funny… when you date a girl, never actually get in a titled relationship, stop talking to one another and then she says how hard your break up has been on her. As a guy, insensitive or not, we’re just like… “WE WERE NOT IN A RELATIONSHIP. YOU CANNOT BREAK UP WITH […]

I came across this video today. Funny story, this weekend I was discussing what my plans were and whereas about 5-6 years ago I would think the sky is the limit it’s not anymore. My list of options involved more of the things I would not do rather than the things I would do. I’m […]

These days a lot of us are choosing to be single. We’re throwing away the mentality that by a certain age we should “settle down.” I mean, the concept never really sounded that great to begin with.

I think it’s important that we realize that a lot of the behavior that goes on between both genders is predicated on the simple premise that it’s allowed. Just like most women will see another woman doing something wrong and choose to disassociate before mentoring, men will do the same. I can’t count the number […]

A few years ago I posted a piece on my personal blog that was in response to comments on a post I wrote here that rubbed some people the wrong way. At the time, many people thought that my attempt to pay a compliment was just a backhanded jab. They felt that I really didn’t […]

keep-calm-and-love-no-thotties-33

Have you ever really sat and thought about society? I made an observation not too long ago that we’d reached a point where as a society we were in a good place but we were also in a really bad place. You see, at this point everybody should feel encouraged to express themselves, their beliefs […]

Relationship Rules in 2014? Yeah, right – Here’s Why You Can Ditch Relationship Rules

Bound-2

A few weeks back Gee Hooks penned a good piece on why people are subscribing to relationship guidelines that don’t work for them. I commented on that post saying, “I think it’s a certain type of person who thinks that they have to subscribe to the popular thought about relationships, marriages and good/bad significant others… […]
