Bearded Black Brilliance

On a 94 degree fall day in Chicago today,  I woke up and immediately began to scroll down my facebook timeline. This is fairly normal behavior that I need to improve on. However, I noticed that nearly EVERY post was related to a new group called Beard Game Matters.

It's full of mostly black men with beards. That's enough for all you ladies to immediately exit this screen and beg for an add. Stick with me anyway! Single ladies, married ladies, and ladies whose relationship statuses are “complicated” jumped at the chance to swoon at the revived trend of masculine male sex appeal.

For just a few minutes..or maybe 2 hrs according to some, you will find that GOD is real by the pure majesty in which he has created some of the most handsome men in the U.S.
What I love most about this group is the fact that the owner Mike McMillan's social media branding has propelled him into a group membership of nearly 200k people. That is nothing to sneeze at!

I also love the fact that even on a social media platform, women receive an opportunity to celebrate the splendor of black men. Did I mention that they are mostly clothed? This is not a porn site, no grey sweats, or slow motion videos with them rubbing baby oil on themselves in the lavatory; black men are simply assembled to be treasured.
Who can be mad at that? I understand that the notion is merely superficial, but it's hopefully a resurgence of celebrating our men for their uniqueness. I firmly believe that media plays a massive role in what Americans, and those abroad see about black men, so a small change could breed results that we could never fathom.

Black men are beautiful, and we covet them, and the masses should take notice. not see this as an opportunity to find love in a hopeless place. I firmly believe that men this fine are not strangers to construction worker type cat calling. So just enjoy the view.

There is an intense need to exalt our men, and this is the place to honor the BEARDS. They are not nude, or in a towel rubbing oil on themselves! A lot of them are very well dressed, and they are mostly giving us just the top half of their physique.
Unfortunately, we live in a sex derived cultural mindset. In my opinion, the imaging is more problematic within black media and culture. Black men and women are still seen within Sarah Baartman and black buck constructs. So in order to see the individuality of our personhood, sometimes it is best to mimic the trend that these men are lending. Show less, receive more.

The pyramids were not built in a day, so I do not expect an immediate change. However, the many facets of black brilliance can and should be showcased in the same way.

Special disclaimer, the men showcased in this article are more than just handsome faces, they come vetted, and highly recommended! 

Live in your light Sista Gurls!

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

It's Not Love, it's Love Adjacent

It’s my thought that the heart and the mind take turns in sharing authority in how we pattern our personal decisions. They cannot both be in control at the same time, and I believe that there’s a celestial straw pulling to determine which will rule within each given moment. The dangerous part about this is, sometimes when the heart wins, we forget to use our brain . When this happens, we start making decisions that are completely passion driven, hunger driven, and backed behind a receptor that shouldn’t receive as much showtime as it’s getting. Sometimes you fall in love with someone that is all wrong for you. They don’t feed you spiritually, they don’t feed you mentally, and maybe they don’t respect you. But they have ONE or two things on our list, so we keep them around. But by osmosis, all the signs that you saw in the beginning appear a bit less obvious, and now you THINK you love this person. Your heart is in control and your brain is taking a break, your brain has

The Black Freak

Recently Nicki Minaj received a wax statue at Madame Toussads wax museum in Las Vegas. Although this is a huge honor, there have been recent reports stating that her statue requires extra security surrounding it. Spectators at the museum have been flashing photos of her likeness in very indecent poses.  Why? Well, because she's on all fours and half naked. Now, I've never been to this place but I went on the website, and viewed a few statues, the only other one half naked, but standing is..RIHANNA. Nicki Minaj in my opinion has willingly fashioned her persona into a modern day Sarah Bartmaan . For those of you unfamiliar, she is best known as the Venus Hottentot, and in life she was an African Woman turned Dutch, turned French tourist attraction, turned science experiment. This is real, look it up if you don’t believe me. Anyway, I say this about Onika because, like Sarah, when there was a rescue attempt to save her, she said (according to history),
