Welcome, everyone! It’s time for another installment of, "The Mainstream Media’s Attack on Black Women!"

Allow me to introduce you to Satoshi Kanazawa. This brilliant psychologist (read that with the most sarcasm you can muster) recently wrote a blog on Psychology Today about how black women are not only dumb, but are tragically unattractive when compared with women of other races. According to Kanazawa, in a study performed over seven years, a group of interviewers rated the attractiveness of a group of white, Asian, Native American, and black women …

There are a couple of my friends who I can never talk to without the conversation turning to men, sex, and/or love. Recently, I was having a conversation with a friend of mine about relationships. I usually hate these conversations especially, because our views are so different. My friend, who I will call K, is the type of girl whose world isn’t complete without a guy. She always has a boyfriend, and the rare occassions when she is single, she is 1) acting all tragic and pathetic, and 2) in …

As a person who lives for music, I thought that I would periodically write blogs about artists that I find out about who are doing something more with their music than teaching us how to dip it, pop it, lock it, and drop it (no shade, I promise!), and are actually saying something that us advocates would be interested in.

I wanted those so bad for Christmas,” she shrieked, pointing at the Reebok EasyTone display. …

I really don’t know how I feel about Keri Hilson. I don’t despise her, but I’m definitely not her biggest fan. I feel as though I am in the weird place of peaceful indifference to Keri and her work. However, when I heard the title of her new video, “Pretty Girl Rock,” and listened to the first few seconds of the track, I was immediately annoyed. I understand that most celebrities have narcissistic tendencies, and have very fragile egos to nurture, but I found this apparently overt example of …

Last night, BET and Centric did their first showing of the annual Black Girls Rock show, which celebrates black women and their contributions to society. I must admit, I was less than enthused. Although I have never seen a minute of Centric’s programming, I have seen enough of BET’s to make me a pessimist and skeptic. Considering BET’s insistence on promoting negative and stereotypical images of black people in general, especially women, and not seeming to really care at all, I have become a little disillusioned with “black …
