Dramatic Video: Tornado hits Lambert Airport in St. Louis

Gotta see it to believe it. SIDENOTE: when you see black people running don't just stand around RUN FOOL!!! You'll find out later what you ran from.



This video is an absolute disgrace. The anger that has engulfed so many of our youth is constantly displayed for all to see. Why are so many men standing around? Why do the girls push the senior woman?? Why does the older lady even have to get involved in the first place when there are so many young men around? I don't know what the reason for this display of ignorance is but I do know that they had no right to do this to that girl.

I hope justice is served to the girls that were so violent and for the camera guy who you could hear repeating the words "The police are on their way you better get out of here" even as the beaten down girl was having a seizure.

Da Brat Got A MJ Tat

Since shes been released from prison Da Brat's been a little busy in the studio as well as at the tattoo shop. Jermaine Dupri tweeted this pic showing her fresh ink.
The tattoo artist did an awesome job with the details but I don't know how I feel about this. Am I the only one who thinks this is a bit overboard??

Real Talent Is Making Comeback

For those of you who don't know, this is Marsha Ambrosius formerly of the popular duo "Floetry". Marsha is definitely doing her thing with her new banging single "Far Away" from her new album "Late Nights and Early Mornings". This album gives us some real music again, thank goodness because I thought musical talent had died in Nicki Minaj's latest wig.

She looks great here, we see you Marsha! For those of you who live under rocks and have no idea what song I'm referring to, just watch the video.

3 Kids Injured In Texas

This story truly breaks my heart. Three kindergartners were injured after a child brought a loaded gun to school. according to this news report by Austin News KXAN. Apparently the weapon fell from the child's pocket and discharged a bullet creating fragments that injured the kids including the child that brought the gun to school. So many questions, so little answers.

Is It Just My Imagination or Are Alot Of Black Men Losing It???

Does there seem to be alot of angry black men out here now days or is it just me? Whats up with all the anger and hatred directed towards black women today? I am really perplexed as to why I have encountered so many broken men who take their limited experience with women and turn against a whole race of women. Just visit some youtube videos on relationships and black women and you'll see what I'm talking about. I hope this isnt a growing trend and I am glad that I know for a fact not all black men project this hatred but there sure seems to be alot. SMH, as if black women dont have it hard enough. I saw a video on youtube that disgusted me but i am seeing this attitude more and more. Dont watch the video if your very sensitive to ignorance.

Who the hell is this and what the hell is wrong with these fools??

Your Natural Styles; Twist Outs

Twist outs are a definite style favorite for many naturals for numerous reasons. They are easy to do and pretty easy to maintain. When styling the hair your twist can be as big or as small as you desire. Twist are usually done on damp hair, for best results a leave in conditioner, gel and oil are used when creating this gorgeous style. After washing or wetting the hair section it off in 4 to 6 sections. Take your time and work section by section twisting the hair into two strand twist at whatever size you want. Once the whole head is complete you may sit under a dryer to dry the hair faster or allow it to air dry.

Most naturals wear their two strand twist for a few days prior to unraveling them but when you are ready to wear your twist out style, separate the twist using a dab of oil on the finger tips so as not to create fuzzy hair. Unravel the twist 1 -2 times a piece in order to create a chunkier look. At night simply re twist your hair, tie with a silk scarf and repeat in the morning. Throw a flower or head band in your hair, beat your face, throw on your fav accessories and stay fierce. Enjoy your beautiful natural style ladies!

Lets Discuss Black Entrepreneurship; What Are You Waiting For?

Black Owned!
     Black entrepreneurship begin with the onset of Emancipation. The lack of sufficient employment due to the racist practices and laws put in place during and after the ending of slavery black unemployment was extremely high. Whites encouraged each other and business owner in refusing the hiring of blacks in many areas outside of domesticated workers and dangerous industrial fields. Exclusionary practices made it difficult for blacks to gain employment and subsequently KEEP employment. In response to the hatred, violence and scarce employment opportunities, blacks began forming and building their own businesses. Black business ownership rates increased more than 100% between 1900 and WWI.

     In today's world blacks are fairing far better than our ancestors but much work is still needed to create a fair playing field with equal opportunities. The unemployment rate for the nation is at about 9% with unemployment in the black community lingering about 15.6%. Now is the time to begin strategizing on how you can become a black entrepreneur. Blacks can no longer afford to wait around hoping for employment, we must continue to create our own employment opportunities. If former slaves could successfully build and create businesses despite not having the access to education, grants and trade schools how much more could we again become the owners of our own dollars. Black entrepreneurship is said to have increased by about 60% between 2002 and 2005. My question to you is what are YOU waiting for?
