Interracial Couples & Black Women – Fight Back in Trumps America


trump-protestLike a lot of people I was completely stunned by Tuesday’s results. I admit, I wanted to stick my head in the sand and pretend that Trump did not exist for the next four years by avoiding the media and disengaging from it all.

However, I was forced to face reality when I get a few phone calls and messages from people telling me to be extra careful since the crazy racist trump supporters have been emboldened by Trump’s election and are targeting minorities, interracial couples and homosexuals.

This led me to read up on an article titled day 1 in Trump’s America (https://twitter.com/i/moments/796417517157830656) where people were sending in reports of harassment, violence, property damage, verbal abuse, etc. perpetuated by Trump supporters.

Apparently, a lot of disgusting trump supporters, young and old feel, that they have been validated by a government that represents their racist and xenophobic ideals and that they no longer have to be “PC”. Instead, they can unapologetically say exactly whatever is on their minds and evil hearts as Trump has all throughout his campaign.

And what is on their mind is that anyone who isn’t a heterosexual White male or female doesn’t belong here in America, America will only be great again when minorities are stomped back into a place of submission, and women have gotten a little bit too big for their britches by expecting to have control over their bodies.

So what does this mean for you if you are a Black woman, or in an interracial relationship with a Black woman or White man?

You need to be prepared.

We need to be smart and protect ourselves regardless of where we live. It doesn’t matter if you are in a blue state (like Connecticut or New York) or in the deep South. Pockets of racists have been hiding everywhere and these idiots are coming out from under their rocks to prey on people.

For me, protecting myself means not being caught off guard – being aware of my surroundings, listening to my gut – and arming myself. Right away I looked into getting a gun, but where I live it is not legal to carry a concealed weapon (that doesn’t mean your state won’t allow it though).

Additionally, my friends and I talked about learning self defense skills – many police departments offer these classes –  and purchasing weapons that can be worn, or are easy to carry around on a keychain or in a pocket.

Here is a list of things I am considering that you may want to consider getting for yourself, your significant other, and your friends/family (be sure to check whether any of these items are illegal in your city or state):

Almost Christmas… Another Stereotypical Black Ensemble Movie


I just saw a trailer for a movie that is coming out today called “Almost Christmas” and all I have to say is *Sigh*, especially to the gun bit at the end.

As one of the commenters on the youtube page noted the movie looks like a recycled carbon copy of the same old same old – “This Christmas” (2007 comedy). Not to mention, the stereotypical loud/ghetto, player/thug characters are a reincarnation of the other tired all-black movies that have been released in the last few years with a Christmas slant thrown on top (the Perfect Match, Think Like a Man, Baggage Claim, and any Madea movie, to name a few).

I am sure sometime within the next few years, we can expect another version of “Almost Christmas” with the same B and C list actors from 15 years ago (can the casting directors not find any new young black actors?) called “Basically Christmas”

My other issue with the current crop of black movies, besides barely ever introducing new actors and all the characters playing stereotypical caricatures, is that they always seem to be an ensemble cast. There will be like 50-11 actors and irrelevant subplots occurring at the same time (e.g. any Madea movie).

I know these types of movies keep getting produced because they are the ones the people seem to support, but is anyone out there writing good movies featuring black characters with some substance to it (not focused solely on race or slavery, isn’t melodramatic with lazy writing, and omits the hood humor?) Seriously, is a good black romantic comedy too much to ask for?

 

Thoughts? Will you be watching ALMOST CHRISTMAS this weekend or nah?

 

SIDE NOTE: At the very least, although the jokes were not funny, Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas (2013) did feature Tika Sumpter and Chad Michael Murray in an interracial relationship and they made for a pretty hot couple.

How to be Irresistible to White Men (Testimonial)


star-thank-youI love getting messages like these. I get them often, but don’t normally post them because I don’t want to toot my own horn, so to speak. However, I now realize that we should be champions of our work and proud of whatever we have worked hard to be proud of (and I am so very proud of my book).

So, it is with great pride and gratefulness that I share this testimonial with you. And if you have a testimonial regarding “How to be Irresistible to White men” changing your life feel free to keep ’em coming to my inbox, amazon, goodreads, itunes, nook, etc.

There’s a shift happening, folks 🙂

 

Hi, I just wrote a review for your book (how to be irresistible to white men). Just wanted to say that I really loved it. I bought it out of curiosity because I normally get plenty of attention from white men, and I was wondering what you learned from Asian ladies. It was really refreshing to read your thoughts, you are very honest, very insightful, and a breath of fresh air. You really nailed a lot of the issues we black women are having image wise. Part of my new year resolution, I recently stop patronizing a particular black women’s online hair forum I had been part of for a decade, because many of the posters were so dismissive of black women in IR relationships. I mean, that attitude was always there, but I finally realized after years of sisterly loyalty to this particular online group that it was doing me more harm than good and I stopped login in. My life has gotten so much better as a result of not logging in everyday to the typical negativities. Anyway, thank you for the audacity of writing such a book. I am sure plenty of Black women are helped by it.

Best, Jessy

Thanks so much for sharing your review with me and other potential readers, Jessy! I very much appreciate it and can’t wear to hear of more greatness sure to come into your life from un
plugging from the negativity.

XO, Lisa

The Hotter Royal (Prince Harry) Dating Mixed Race Woman (Meghan Markle)


beauty-trends-blogs-daily-beauty-reporter-2014-07-17-meghan-markleEveryone wants to know who is Meghan Markle?

No, she’s not the girl from Glee, although she does bear a striking resemblance to Naya Rivera (another beautiful mixed race actress)

Meghan Markle is an American Actress who is currently on the TV legal drama, Suits. Oh, and she is also Prince Harry’s gorgeous, mixed raced, OLDER girlfriend (she’s 35) giving new life to the words that fairytales can come true, they can happen to you!

prince-harry-meghan-markle

YOU GO, GIRL!

Ok, how jelly are you that Meghan Markle has managed to snag one of the most eligible bachelors in the UK (a hot, tall, powerful, prince with a full head of hair, no less)?

Before people start claiming Harry is not crossing racial lines, Meghan isn’t 100% black, but since she has a black mother and a white father, so we can definitely call their relationship an interracial one.

OT – Is it just me who always thought Prince William was the hotter? “How the turntables have turned” as Michael Scott would say. This iteration of Prince Harry is looking mighty fine. He sure has grown into his own over the years, am I right?

By the way, Prince Harry basically put a cork in it to all the naysayers who were in denial that the two are together by confirming their relationship and telling the media to back up off his woman with a strongly worded statement to the media who has been digging into her past and painting her family as unworthy of her being loved. Of course these people seem to forget Prince Harry’s parents were also divorced and Princess Diana was a model in her younger days… so it makes no sense for them to try to degrade her profession and delegitimize her background/upbringing.

Way to go, Prince Harry! Who doesn’t like a man willing to stand up for his woman! 🙂

Robert Pattinson & FKA Twigs Engaged! Not an April Fool’s Joke


fka-twigs-robert-pattinsonIn the latest black woman, white man celebrity interracial couple news, 28 year old actor / heartthrob Robert Pattinson and 27 year old singer FKA twigs (Tahliah Debrett Barnett) – otherwise known as Twigbert – are reportedly engaged (No, it wasn’t an April fool’s joke and no, it’s not because they’re trying to hurry up the marriage part because of an imminent baby carriage)!

Rob is madly in love with FKA and has been pretty much from the time they started dating last September.

Of course, there have been many bitter (:cough – white – cough:) fangirls who have expressed their outrage and disappointment with Robert’s choice of love interest, deeming her not worthy of the handsome Pattinson.

Methinks it has a lot to do with FKA twigs’ ethnic background (her father is Jamaican, and her mother is english and spanish but the average person would identify her as ‘Black’ upon seeing her) and reminds me a lot of the whole Zoe Kravitz / Chris Pine, Michael Fassbender… insert other cute hot white actor here.

I guess they would’ve preferred the seemingly dull gay/bi-sexual kristen stewart (who cheated on him) to be the one who got the ring from Pattinson over the confident, bold and oozing with talent, FKA twigs? Oh well, too bad! In the infamous words of selena gomez, ‘the heart wants what it wants’.

Congrats to the extremely happy couple, and remember ladies – there are plenty of gorgeous white men who will appreciate your unique, fly style and beauty!

Tamera Mowry & Adam are Pregnant w/ Baby #2!


1488246_843247272379405_6945609193725214777_nLots of news in the BW-WM celebrity couple world in the new year!

Much thanks to those of you who have sent me notes regarding actress Tamera Mowry and husband, Adam Housley’s big announcement.

 

Tamera broke the news on her Facebook wall / instragram to her fans with the following statement:

“Adam and I are beyond thrilled to announce we are#ClearblueConfirmed! Love Clearblue‘s pregnancy test with Smart Countdown. It helped me get through the wait for my result by counting down with me. We can’t wait to meet our newest addition!! #spon

 

74921036Yeah, it sound conspicuously like a pregnancy test infomercial (and she’s probably getting paid to mention clear blue every third word, but I’m not mad at her.. after all, she’s got another mouth to feed on the way!)

Congrats Tamera and family!
