Can We Be Your Sistas?

My mom  has a best friend, that she has had my whole life and most of hers (I think the count is, over 50 years now). Every week, they share their stories with each other either on the phone or in person. They can talk on the phone every day, and yet, each time, it would seem like, they hadn't spoken in years.

You could even feel the love in their voice messages, "Hey Ging, it's me G!", or " Hey Sista Gurl, it's me!" The love that they share for each other runs DEEP. They're soul mates. They're Sistas. The kind that are not blood related, the type of sister that is chosen. They lean on each other when times are rough, they celebrate in each others joy, it is the most perfect love.

Studies have proven that women live longer, and one of those reasons is because we allow ourselves the opportunity to vent, and share our frustrations to our friends. By doing so, the slums of every day life don't kill us (Look it up, it's a fact)!

Some of you may not have a SistaGurl in your life right now, I'm humbly asking, will you allow myself and my friends to be your Sistas? We will write with you in mind to help you, and ourselves, reconnect with our fabulous, wonderful, healthy, and spiritual selves. As a special bonus, we also have some BROTHAS to add input as well!

We will be blogging about Love and Relationships, Health and Beauty, News and Politics, Arts and Entertainment, and Black Excellence; you know, the typical sista-type conversation. So try us with your morning coffee, or on your ride to work, cause we have your back, and we're thinking about you!

Sending Love Your Way,

Capt SistaGurl.

Ladies, Make Him Act Right! (From a man's perspective)

So ladies, we have a tendency to get advice from women about MEN far more than we should. So I have a special treat today. We're going to get some advice on how to entice, encourage, and exalt a man from you guested it.. A MAN. I picked one, who speaks with the sole purpose to educate. So some of his language may be a bit harder than you're used to but.. you will not be disappointed. Capt SistaGurl Out!  Introducing Tikko Brohey  Ladies do you feel like “dudes ain’t shit” or “dudes don’t act right?” Have you ever thought about the things you do that contribute to that? The answer is probably not.  Now granted there are dudes out there who just ain’t shit, and that’s just what it is. Majority of men are good men. But his partner can often determine just how good he'll actually be. Every woman deserves to be treated like a queen, as every man deserves to be treated like a king. The disconnect comes from when there’s an argument all the King and Queen shit is out the

Why the Death of DMX Hurts

By Capt SistaGurl Laura Miller DMX has always been a friend to the youth, specifically young black men growing up in the age of Hip Hop who needed someone to help explain the daily pain that they were experiencing. They had X in his edgy brilliance. He didn't walk around pretending to be someone he wasn't. He was someone who we’ve watched soar to the highest of heights and fall just as fast and hard.  Before DMX I don't think there was any rapper who had explained the pains of feeling abandoned better. He resonated with a generation of black males who were born in the '80s, '90s , and 00's UNLOVED. Our community often grazes over young black men in this way. Supported by no one but themselves. He touched them, and he also touched the women and men who understood this type of pain. His lyrics were true to who he was and who he would always be. A real ass dude trying to figure it out. Trying to understand the pressures of his celebrity. Navigating through The agon

The Church is Failing: The Young Black Male

This is a taboo subject. That I’ve thought about quite a bit but never had the courage to really vocalize. Courage and fear are funny things because one of them is just as strong as the other, it’s just a question of which one you choose to live in. So today, I choose to live within a courageous light. Why, being a black woman, and an active christian would I have a fear vocalizing my opinion on how black men have been failed by the church? Messages are often misconstrued based on the perception of the reader. Additionally, it’s best practice to NOT add any fire to the flame of those that question institutionalized religion. However, in this case, I think I’d like to get this out with the hopes that some black man, within a particular age, will utilize this post as a reason to do better in reaching young black men. There was a time when the core of the civil rights movement was centered around black men and women within religious faiths. They actively worked together,
