Inside Domestic Violence: Power and Control (full)

Why are black children failing at school?

Experiences in England.  Sometimes you have to step out of America to see that similar issues here affect others all around the world.

Now watch this video about African Americans and the rate of graduates from high school.

A 2011 report from The National Center for Education Statistics showed that only 66% of African American students graduated from high school. David Johns of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans addresses these gaps.

In Memory Of

The scene is common across America at many cookouts.  Music is blaring, people are talking while others are eating.  Children and pets are running around.  The sun is shining. 

Feel good now, enjoy those precious moments with loved ones, because happy times often turn into sorrowful times without notice soon after. 

We take a moment of silence for those who are no longer with us.  May their souls continue to rest in peace.


Thanks for Stopping By...Enjoy the Blog!

If this is your first time visiting, welcome.  For those who have been on this site for quite some time, I hope that you will check out some of the past postings that you missed.  On this site, the blog entries have dealt with controversial topics dealing with everything from racism to relationships.  Of course, the editorial pieces do not reflect the views of all African Americans, but what the postings do is challenge one to think beyond one's upbringing, personal experiences, and more.  If you are easily offended, don't scroll.  If you have issue with being black, why are you here?  If you love all your blackness through and through (or someone else's blackness--lol,) then by all means have a look!  Once you go black...well you know how the saying goes, enjoy!



Men Who Secretly Hate Women - Family, Workplace, Relationships

This my friends was an answer to prayer.  Sometimes you think you know why some do what they do.  What I have learned is when they can't get away with hating you, they move on to those who are clueless as to how deep the rabbit hole really is--this message has many thought-provoking meanings and layers upon layers of truth!  Ancestors hated one another on the plantation and even now many still carry that hate in their DNA.  How long, how long must we carry the burdens of our cursed forefathers' hate?

Break every yoke of bondage--get free of dysfunctional men who blatantly disrespect and are jealous of women.  Cut your losses early, stay away from the angry men and women.(


No Badge of Honor for the Callous Mother

She expects to be honored, but she doesn't respect others.  She assumes she will receive gifts from loved ones, yet she has stopped buying for others.  She believes herself to be a "good" woman even when she is bad.  Some mothers, stepmothers, grandmothers and others are disillusioned, ill-equipped, and downright crazy to believe that children (young or old) want anything to do with them when they have done their share of dirt to create distance.

We can pray until we are blue in the face concerning some of these mothers who may have once had wonderful relationships with children, but no more.  We can judge, condemn or ridicule children all we want, but we weren't there when a mother used, abused, and did unspeakable acts to her offspring.

As much as we would all like to believe that every mother is deserving of some badge of achievement, our Father in heaven says, "Not so."  Holidays like mother's day and others get so many Christians into trouble because they look through the lens of their personal realities rather than being compassionate and understanding of others' plights.

Some children may not have had a difficult childhood with mother but over time things changed in their relationship with their mother especially once they had children of their own.  There are those sons and daughters who are actually better people because they broke dysfunctional programming from mothers and chose to do more with their lives.  Others may have been abused mentally, physically and spiritually by mothers and so they may try very hard to make up for lost times by pleasing moms or punish them depending on how traumatic the abuse.

In the black community, most mothers are generally esteemed.  However, what tends to happen is that many individuals who are close with their mothers will attempt to encourage those who are not to reconnect or stay connected with their mothers even when it is better that people separate. 

Without educating one's self on the sensitive issues involving families, the personal challenges and more that comes with staying in contact with toxic people, the well-meaning individual could actually aid in the problems between mother and children.

Not every mother is sane, functional, and healthy emotionally or physically to take on children and grandchildren and not every mother wants a relationship with all either.
