Trump Who? Here's Why I Don't Give a Damn.

I know that we as a nation are on the heels of a presidency that was unfavored by over 50% of the voting population. I also know that we as a nation are going to wake up in mourning because the Obamas are leaving the white house. It sucks. There is really no right way to say it. We will miss them for who they are and what they stand for. We can also remember how every time Barack walked off of Air Force or stepped to the podium behind the presidential seal, dreams were no longer deferred. It is okay to grieve. Not for long, because quite frankly, there isn’t much time to do so.

The world is changing fast! Tomorrow what we knew about how the government worked could be a recent memory.. I am not here to fear monger, it is just the truth. Healthcare is changing, the stock markets are fluctuating, protests are looming and all throughout this process children are watching. Capt Twitter Fingers, The President of Scam University, Alleged Rapist, Mr. Pussy Grabber is going to be the 45th President of the United States. TOMORROW.

He is going to be boarding the same plane that the OBAMAS did, sleeping in the same bedroom, with just as much access to the military that he or any other president had. He is “our leader” now. (Excuse the vomit). I know everyone is saying,” Oh he is not my President.“ but guess what? Go visit another country after tomorrow and they will dispute your theory.. These are the undeniable facts.

So what do we do now? I have a few theories. Since it is also the same week as Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday, The Birth of Nation film was released this week, and Hidden Figures is number one in the box office; I can’t help but notice the symbiotic echoes of unity, change, and forward progression from our forefathers and former leaders.

We cannot give up. Our children (literally and figuratively in my case), still need our help. Our blood is still in the streets and our souls are still broken. We cannot, sit down and throw our hands up because an orange man is supposed to be our representation now. We have the tools be the change, to build our wealth, and to be our own leadership. More than we ever did, we can do this for ourselves.

We don’t have to to sit and be shocked. Shocked for what?? When are people are losing love for themselves? When our median average of annual salary is approximately $8k and $71k among White Americans. We have spent too much time being shocked and feeling sorry for ourselves. Try a new thing! Create, Inspire, be an example. Invest your money, stop buying takeout food, jewelry and shit we do not need. Feed the homeless. APOLOGIZE WHEN YOU ARE WRONG. Please. USE CONDOMS. Be a leader. Do not let the dried blood on the leaves of our ancestors and our children be in vain.

Truthfully, this has nothing to do with white people, or any other nationality for that matter. It has everything to do with us and what is urgent for our communities. No one will ever give us anything.

This is a call to action as much as it is a plea for my people to be great. BLACK is amazing. There is no limit to that and it is about time we stopped watching the world lap us.

When only the Sistas are CANCELED!

New Blogger Alert!!! This post was submitted by the ever talented Seirra Pepin! *****
Drake’s Nice For What dropped just in time to be mine, and plenty of women’s Summer ‘18 anthem. What a thoughtful king. @Defend_Brooklyn said it best, the video has the Infinity Stones of Black women. But Aubrey’s female empowerment jam doesn’t exempt him from flaw.
Like many other rappers, he uses expletives to describe women. He’s belittled Kid Cudi’s mental health. Nevertheless, our problematic fave has yet to be canceled. Neither has Kanye West after his slavery comments, not really.

This isn’t about our Canadian Prince or Chicago’s troubled son. It’s about Black women and the nuance and forgiveness we deny them. Start the cancellation parades organized by forward-thinking millennials (like myself) that aim to diminish the platforms of Cardi B, Chrisette Michelle, Azealia Banks, Tina Campbell, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Think about how swift, and in some of these cases, impactful, backlash has be…

MUST READ: How to Emotionally Validate Children/Teens

Guess Post Alert!!! Many of you who follow us may remember that we interviewed health therapist, and "Dating With Dev" Site Creator Devon Estes, and it was BRILLIANT. She's been so gracious to share her expertise on an article that most parents and mentors will benefit from! Show her some love! ~ Capt SistaGurl

By Devon Estes M.S.,LPC

As a mental health therapist for teens and their families I find myself teaching emotional validation a lot. For the teens I spend much of their treatment expanding their emotional vocabulary, guiding them into identifying their emotions, helping them identify their needs associated with their emotions, and supporting them into acting on those needs in a healthy productive manner. For their parents, I’m often highlighting the connection between validation/invalidation and the issues they experience with the child, as well as how to help support the child navigate self-validation.  I also find myself debunking the myth that validation is ag…

I think it's especially important that when something is on my mind, I share it with my SG readers. Yall are my girls and therefore we must be able to have those conversations that aren't always popular for the betterment of womanhood. Your vagina, can be compared to no other vagina, it was carefully crafted just for your in divine splendor.  It's special. You are special. Here's the part that we so often forget and rarely point out though. As special as your Kitty Love Blossom is, it's only special to you! Literally just you.

Sometimes you may go to the ob/gyne and the physician will tell you how beautiful it is, and how firm your cervix is, but that's because they value those types of things. In real life. It's apart of their job.
