What if Kate Middleton Were Black?


by Dr. Boyce Watkins, YourBlackWorld.comScholarship in Action 

If there were a royal wedding being held in Africa, would CNN spend an entire week covering it?  If not, what does that say about race, if anything at all? 

I couldn’t help but feel entirely disconnected from the ceremony that was being shown all over our television sets at the same time hundreds of people were being killed in an Alabama tornado.  I kept wondering if the fantasy of the British fairytale had more relevance to news producers than the reality of death and devastation.

Do Black Women Have a Preference for Thugs? (Video)


In this episode of Your Black Love, Deborrah Cooper and I ask whether or not black women have a preference for dating men that are not good for them.

Do you know a woman who dates one bad guy after another and then seems to spend all of her time whining about the fact that she can never find a good man?  Yea, I have too.  Well, it seems to me that, at some point, we must all have some degree of accountability for our relationship choices.

Jestina Clayton is a woman in Utah who is originally from Sierra Leone in West Africa.  She does African braiding part-time in order to make extra money.  She is now being confronted with the loss of significant income, since a law in the state of Utah claims that you must have a full cosmetology license in order to braid hair.

Clayton filed suit this week in the court of law.  She is being backed by the Institute for Justice, a Virginia-based organization that helps people like Clayton challenge unjust laws.

Wilmarie from Bad Girls Club Season 6

After watching this LAME season of Bad Girls Club I realized that the “baddest” Bad Girl was only on the show for about a week but she definitely made a mark that will last for many seasons to come.

Wilmarie “Wilma” Sena from New Jersey was the BEST Bad Girl in my opinion because she never just talked about what she could do to someone, she showed you what she could do to somebody, the somebody being “the football player” Nikki.
