i came across this post a guy did last night on another blog where he stated,

now i’m not new to this phenomenon, but can i ask WTF is up with this #teamlightskinned #teamdarkskinned? don’t blacks deal with enough prejudice and racism in the world? now you’re gonna make a sub-category of racism in our own culture?!

i couldn’t agree more with him. i’ve recently logged on a little more to twitter and i see it a lot. #teamlightskinned, #teamdarkskinned. and its not even about loving your skin tone …

Maybe a week or two ago Rihanna released her video for her song titled S&M. if you don’t know, S&M refers to Sadism and Masochism: Sadism- pleasure inflicting pain on other during sexual acts; Masochism- pleasure receiving pain during sexual acts.
Now the video has been banned, last time I heard in 11 countries and after I watched it online right after it had been released I figured it would be. But in all honesty seeing a woman of color do a video like this and make a song …

So, it is Black History Month and while we celebrate the achievements and great things that have happened for black people let’s not overlook some things that are holding us back. The month of February is a great time of remembrance and celebration. Even though we should be proud 24/7, 365 of who we are and where we come from, it is also a time of learning. As a people, we need to learn to better protect ourselves when it comes to our reproductive health. Embrace and enjoy the …

Hello everyone!! I was looking around different blog sites and some are taking the time to acknowledge that today is in fact World AIDS Day. The site I look at most often though, had a nice post that came from HIV positive, international activist, Hydeia Broadbent

Just like Hip Hop runs through the blood of our inner cities, so does HIV. Like Hip Hop, the fight against AIDS has been watered down. We are complacent with the medical advancements made just as Hip Hop is complacent with its

How do we as blacks or minorities overcome this issue that is HIV? Is it possible? Being in school and taking an Epidemiology class I’ve learned that you have to look at the problems on the macro and micro level. I think this video does a good job of that, the big problem is HIV but what people aren’t seeing is what it takes for people to get to the point of not protecting themselves. I don’t want to say too much, I think the video is able to …

It’s Halloween so I’m sure a lot of young girls/women will be dressing up as their beloved Nicki Minaj. I think this piece I came across showed up at the right time. I’ve been browsing a couple blog sites and kept coming across this one particular piece that has a lot of people talking. A young woman by the name of Jasmine Mans, did an original spoken word piece entitled “Nicki Minaj” at an event at the University of Wisconsin- Madison. Miss Jasmine Mans has undeniable talent but

..is February 7th!

I went and talked to Cecilio, who works for ALFA about the testing process and got some great information about it. When I got tested (at a location other than ALFA, last year) they didn’t get into any of the things ALFA got into. So keep in mind not all testing processes are the same but all in all, get tested.

Here’s the video…
And he talks about the rapid test.

I also looked around on the website for National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.

Just read Cree’s post and just viewed the video below, on BET’s 106 & Park Top Ten Countdown. Find this very fitting and again I ask…what’s going on?

Today is World AIDS Day..let’s all get tested!

Because its World AIDS Day I thought I’d share some facts regarding the African American community..keep in mind ladies..African American and Latino women are disproportionately impacted
-          African Americans make up about 12-13% of the population but account for most cases of AIDS

"America’s HIV epidemic isn’t going away. In fact, it’s getting worse, and African American and Latino women are disproportionately impacted… It’s time to provide women in heavily impacted communities with expanded access to affordable women-controlled options, and the female condom becomes that choice. Women will use it if they have it" — Dazon Dixon Diallo, Founder and President of SisterLove, a grassroots
