Is the Angry Black Woman Real or a Myth?

A few days ago Wendy Williams was reflecting on her short time on ABC Dancing with the Stars. She said that the confessionals the contestants do are not their thoughts. They are actually scripted and according to the script she was supposed to be an eye rolling, snake necking angry black woman, but she refused to follow the script. Why? She said she was not that girl, and she refused to play the role. Williams is actually an accomplished woman with a lot to be happy about. Why are black women portrayed as angry? Is this a myth of the media? When the president ran for his first term the media tried to paint the first lady as angry. Fox contributor Juan Williams actually called her “Stokely Carmichael in a dress.” So do black women actually contribute to the stereotype? Are black women justified in being angry? Anger is a normal emotion, but when that becomes your daily fuel then perhaps that is a problem, but why don’t we ever hear of the angry white woman? Aren’t white women frustrated and angry too? Some women do in fact make a career out of anger, but is that enough to justify the myth? What do you think? Share your thoughts.

Porsha Williams, RHOA has been charged with assault

Reality television is simply scripted television performed by amateurs. Most of the time it is harmless, but when Porsha Williams charged Kenya Moore on the RHOA reunion show it got a little bit too real, and now the real world has become involved. Williams has been charged with assault, but what has Bravo Television been charged with? Read the linked story for the details and share your thoughts.

Nene Leakes is a star, but she is Nobody’s Friend

Nene Leakes is the star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. What she says goes and if you challenge her supremacy you will find yourself watching the show versus being on the show. Nene was tight with Kim and when they broke up Kim was soon history. She fought with Sheree, and then Sheree was a goner. She handpicked Marlo, but when Marlo crossed her she dismissed her, but last night Nene took it to a new level. Cynthia her good and faithful servant became the latest to be a member of the former friend list. Cynthia Bailey has been there for Nene. She has been her ride or die chick even when the viewers questioned Cynthia’s sanity. A couple of week’s ago on the show Nene called Cynthia’s husband Peter a “bitch.” It’s hard to come back from that kind of insult, but Cynthia seemingly accepted Nene’s non-apology apology. Last night during an interview with Andy Cohen, Nene unleashed her wrath on Cynthia, and she also through some shade on former castmate, Sheree. Last night Nene had a platform provided by the network and she suggested that Cynthia should be dismissed from the show. It is hard to break it off with Nene. If you are on the show you do so at your own peril. A few weeks ago my son was home from school and he sat down with us and watched some of the show. He said that Nene was a “beast”, and I have to agree with him. She devours her enemies. Nene has gone from being a fun loving down to earth woman on Season 1 who made us laugh to being a “star”. She has improved her looks, her clothing and her stature, but along the way she shed the persona that made us root for her. The fact is Nene is a star, but last night she proved she is nobody’s friend.

We learned this in 4th grade. Did you learn this in school? This speech still resonates.

How would you like to live in a world with no rules?

This morning I was watching the Today Show. They featured a story about a great little girl basketball player. She was great and she played on an all boys team but the state rules committee would not let her team participate in the tournament because the rules stated that a girl could not play on the boys team. The team decided not to participate if ahe was not allowed to play. The anchors of the Today Show said they hope that the team would challenge the rule and the ultimate goal was to overturn the rule. So why do we have rules? Do we only want to obey rules we agree with? On the evening news I saw a rancher who refuses to pay the tax the IRS has determined he owes on the land that he lets his cows graze on. he has not paid taxes in 20 years and has a tax bill of 1 million dollars. he refuses to pay and people from throughout the country have come out to support him. So he refuses to pay his taxes but we have to pay our taxes. Is he right? What rules do we wish to obey? So what do we do? Eliminate some rules, all rules? Share your thoughts.

Restroom Controversy…is this a civil rights issue?

A friend of mine told me her granddaughter works at a major retailer. There is an employee who was hired as a male, but now he identifies as a female. He has started using the ladies room and when her granddaughter complained she was told by HR that she was discriminating against the employee. So now she no longer uses the ladies room at the store. Are her rights being ignored? Share your thoughts.
