I hate when I hear people say things like “he dresses like he’s black” and when you look at the person they are dressed in what is perceived to be “urban” attire. Meanwhile urban attire is fashionable and has been a main staple in the fashion industry. Or better yet when someone is dress in […]

When I think of family structure I immediately think of my own home, the household I was raised in. My brother, sister and I were happy kids. We were fortunate enough to attend private school, graduate from HS and college. We were raised to be close knit and still are. I by no means feel […]

So one day I was talking to my grandma and she was telling how hard things were for her mother (my great Grandma) who came here from Puerto Rico in the 20′s/30′s. She was a Black Latina and faced many tribulations. She remembers her mom combing her hair and stating how her children need to […]
