Shake Off Your Ugliness Toward Non-black People

Oprah got it right even though blacks criticized her for not representing them early on in her career. Obama got it right even though blacks weren't initially sold on him and even went so far as to call him an Uncle Tom. Even Michael Jackson got it right when he reached across color lines with his music. So why haven't many of the average black people walking down the street got it right? Why do some smile in the non-black's face then go home and call him or her everything but his or her name? Racist black people got it wrong!

I sat back and listened to some family members rant and rave about non-black people and how "they always doing this...they always doing that..." Of course they name called, mocked, criticized, etc. But when it came down to the almighty dollar, they had their hand out. They knew how to "shuck and jive" to get it. Sometimes I wonder if some blacks can even see through their prejudices. Blacks can be prejudice and if they are in power, many can be racists.  Passing over certain ethnicities for other ones, it isn't equal employment opportunity at some establishments.  I see the eye rolls, the attitudes, and other negativity when a non-black walks into a room of black people. It's reverse racism at work!

We need non-blacks just as much as we need one another. Some of us know from personal experience that oftentimes our own people won't support us, but other races will! I can't tell you how many times I reached out to my own race only to be ignored or told, "I don't have the money." At least I know that when I ask for support from other people irregardless of their race, they will show some love! That is why I say Oprah and Obama got it right. We can criticize them all we want, but the reality is that they know how to work all races of people. They know how to genuinely smile not fake it. They know how to find the balance between keeping it real and keeping it REAL! I notice that ignorant blacks who haven't ever gone outside of their small, run-down communities don't understand the thought of embracing a non-black. They don't know the power of befriending someone who doesn't look like me or you. They just don't get it and because they don't get it they will hate on their sister or brother! "Look at her trying to act white...Look at him walking with that white woman." What the critic doesn't know is that the white, red, yellow, or brown man or woman is putting butter on that man or woman's bread, but what about you or me what are we doing? That's right...nothing, but running our mouths!

Let's go beyond black and shake hands with a network of people that will help us get somewhere in life! With God's leading, all things are possible to them that love him! Be blessed...

African American Scholarships - Scholarships For Minorities!

Are you a high school junior, senior, in college, or considering going to graduate school? Did you know that if you are an African American, then there are many different scholarship that you can apply for? The best part about African American scholarships is that since they are a minority scholarship there is less competition for the actual money. Here are some ways you can go about finding the scholarships you might qualify for.

First, you can start by talking to the universities and colleges you are considering attending. They usually have a list of scholarships that they offer and that are offered from alumni, organizations, and companies that they are associated with. This is a great place to start as they often have some leads for scholarships that would have been very difficult to find anywhere else.

Second, you can also try to find African American scholarships by looking up different organizations that protect the rights of African Americans or are specifically for African Americans. These are all over the place and they range from large to small. Most of these organizations will either have some sort of scholarship fund that you can apply for or they can point you in the right direction to finding these types of African American scholarships.

Last, you can also search for scholarships right online. This is usually free to do and the best part is most of the searches will list the different qualifications and they will help you apply to get the scholarship. This is a great way to cut your college tuition down or even pay for it in full. Make sure you apply for each and every scholarship you can find and when you search online go through all the ones you might qualify for.

Full Lace Wigs, the African American Wigs of Choice!

I can remember several years back when African American wigs where simply boring and old fashioned looking. It was not like you had great selections and options back then, though they were available but just not in a wide range of styles and colors. But now, thanks to the world wide web and today's innovators, all that has changed for the better.

The Newest Style Wigs for Black Women

Thankfully, today's african american wigs come in a variety of styles, lengths and colors, including a more superb level of quality. The wigs I am speaking of look natural to the naked eye when worn on your head! If you have not guessed it by now, I'm talking about full lace wigs that can be customized specifically for your needs for both women and men.

Change Your Style at The Flip of a Switch

That's right; you can literally change out your entire look when wearing full lace wigs. Gone are the days spending hundreds of dollars at your local salon or beauty shop. If you can learn to put one on yourself, you are looking at an exciting new way to looking different and stylish all the time and without spending hard earned dollars every week or two with a beautician.

Real Hair Wig - Timeless and Classy Looks

Of course most hair styles made for African American wigs come and go. You probably remember the old Jerry Curl hairstyle? Yep, they had this in a wig as well back in the 80's of course. Back then, Jerry Curls where the thing to have and wear as a hairstyle trend, especially for men. But thank goodness that trend has past and gone bye bye!

Oh My, Are the 80's Hairstyles Back?

Well technically, yes and no. Today's African American wigs are worn and created with the 'revolutionized' 80's look. The simple flip of the ends, front bangs etc...well it is more chic now when where lace wigs in this style. But remember, you can always 'change your style at the flip of a switch'! Though there are some full lace wigs made of curls (not technically Jerry Curl), there are however different curl patterns and textures that are current with today's hair trends and styles.

African American Wigs - The Movement & Making Strides

So now you know a little about full lace wigs for black women. The interchangeable wig, the wig you can change styles when you feel like switching out, the wig that is timeless and classy. I consider the full lace wig the 'Superwoman Wig', because when it comes to hair fashion and hairstyles, we like to be on point. One day you are Jane, the next day you could be 'Veronica the Vixen'!
