Anna Renee’s Birthday Present To Herself

James Copes,The Mayor of Oakland’s Eastmont Mall

Two Sundays ago, I decided to go out in search of a bookstore to browse.  I’m a hardcore bibliophile and was seriously jonesing for some book spine reading action, so I first went online to see what bookstores are actually left.  Ever since my beloved Stacey’s Bookstore of San Francisco closed down, and also even…

Youtube Love Couples I Love

Have I told you all how much I love Youtube?  It is so epic!  Youtube is such a wonderful way to preserve history, and it’s great when we gather only what we need.  I don’t do the negative stuff because my mind is like flypaper and the messy stuff would get stuck in my head for a long…

White Business Partners – Can We Truss ‘Em? pt2

Part 2   Warm Spirit and Cold Business Partners Don’t Mix What happened to Warm Spirit?  Daniel was shocked by its success.  He never fathomed the company growing so big.  Nadine was shocked herself.  In fact, many in the direct marketing industry were blown away by Warm Spirit’s stellar success.  It was unprecedented, unheard of for a black woman to…

White Business Partners – Can You Truss ‘Em?

Oh, how racism and jealousy can destroy a good thing!  If your business partner is white, make sure he’s not easily influenced by racists.  Find out if his friends are racists, and whether they can sway him against you.   It’s been said that you can tell much about a person by the company he keeps.  Do a background check to…

Aiyana and Ayize Ma’at Teach Us About Black Love and Marriage

Hello Fam!  This is the season of giving and love and happiness.  I personally don’t get involved with the hoopla of shopping for gifts and fighting in malls for stuff, but I do love to share the gift of knowledge and wisdom, especially when young black couples are involved.

Black Folks Are Breaking Into the Beauty Supply Business

The beauty business is a huge booming business and black people spend a great deal of money for beauty supplies every year.   In fact, we buy so many beauty products that our black dollars are able to support hundreds of beauty supply stores in our communities, city by city.  Every store I’ve ever been in has always had a brisk…

Tyrese Gibson Drops Science on the Immutable Principles of Success

While I was doing researching for the post I wrote on author Dr. Dennis Kimbro, I found out that singer Tyrese Gibson had collaborated with him.  Tyrese did at least one talk with Dennis Kimbro’s  “Take a Millionaire To Lunch” series.  In this series, Dr. Kimbro arranges for black millionaires to speak to the students of HBCUs and teach them how to think like a…

Dennis Kimbro – Think and Grow Rich, A Black Choice: Will We?

Well, it’s been a few days since Black Thursday/Friday happened, and a lot of us spent more money on those sales than we probably should have.  It’s hard to be disciplined when desires have been implanted in our brains for stuff we don’t really need.  Then they offer us a few days a year to herd…

Patrick and Gina Neely Like Doing It in the Kitchen

I love this couple!  😀 Pat and Gina Neely of the Food Network’s Down Home With the Neelys are over the top and dripping with black love!  Their love clings like homemade barbecue sauce on slow cooked ribs.  They go hard and sexy with their black love.  So unabashedly brazen and unapologetic with it! I like boldness and…

Don’t You Know…I’m Flawless!

We women have had a hard time with commercials, haven’t we?  The humiliation of that stupid “Hail to the V” commercial, which was a douche of a mess; and not too long ago that stupid Superbowl commercial with the evil jealous witch of a sister.  It seems that Madison Avenue just refuses to consider encouraging…

Steve Harvey vs Cornel and Tavis-Game Recognize Game!

This video is interesting. Steve Harvey has come out swinging on Cornel and Tavis!  I have just listened to Steve on his radio show and he is pulling no punches on where he stands concerning Cornel and Tavis, and their Poverty Bus Tour. I have to admit that I’ve been out of the loop concerning…
