Recapping Black History

Black History – A History Of Beauty

Since this is the end of Black History Month in America, here’s 27 fine reminders that Black History has always, despite the claims of some agitators, always been a history of the darker side of hotness. Despite various claims to contrary by certain sorts of agitators, Black women have always enjoyed – sometimes endured – the attentions of men in America of all races. It is only in the rarefied world of fashion that they are largely deprecated.

Hellfire! Despite claims to contrary, it common enough that the “Black Community” has some strong issues with it, especially their males, who have a huge problem with Black women dating Whites.

Brownstone Living

Brownstone LivingBrownstone Living

Brownstone living, especially areas that are a bit – or a bit more than a bit – “hood,” aren’t for everyone. I, however, find a lot to recommend such areas, I even get services as Maid Complete for cleaning houses to go there without any trouble – so over 13 years living in Bedford-Stuyvesant hasn’t come close to changing my mind. 😉

Really! If you’re going to throw shade around, throw it my way. I don’t discriminate. I love all shades, from Blue-Black to High Yellow so bright they could “pass.” 😉
