About Me

I was practically born a member of the Democratic Party. I began registering people to vote while still in elementary school, often after Sunday school. I'm excited about the future of our party because good, in the end, always wins!

Bias Against Women Driven By People Who Think It Doesn't Exist

From Rawstory

Bias against women driven by people who think it doesn’t exist: study

June 29, 2020.

Managers who believe gender discrimination is a thing of the past showed bias against women by suggesting a female job candidate be paid eight percent less than an identically qualified man, according to new research.

The study, which comes after a United Nations report said around 90 percent of people globally hold some prejudice against women, found that bias persists even when female representation in a particular field increases.

“Quite critically, this research demonstrates that managers who think bias is no longer an issue in their profession are, perhaps ironically, the key drivers of bias,” the authors said.

Researchers looked at veterinary medicine — a profession that used to be dominated by men but now has a substantial female workforce.

"Step up"....indeed. 🙄

Amber speaks for me.

Prince and Chaka ....Nothing Else Needs To Be Said


Good grief! The YouTube streets are filled with idiots.

Thank you for the ❤!

Thanks for the computer love!

Thanks for my heart. You helped to make my morning!

Matthew 28....Like Thunder!!!

"Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up."

The best part about Easter for me, besides the candy, was rushing to church in my best to see mom sing in the choir. They always "tore it up". The only catch, it meant we had to be ready in time for sunrise! Stockings, slips, hair (done the night before), and all the ironing had to be done so that we could get to church by 6am.
I found this video of a song I've been looking for called Matthew 28. Donald Lawrence and his choir are awesome. It brings back memories from my youth, watching my mom belt out praises in songs that told the story. Enjoy!

Shout out to all the church choir members! Are there any sopranos out there?

DL For The Win!

I don't always agree with DL. However, Mr. Hughley is absolutely correct in this clip about the Smollett situation.

Favorite quote from the clip: "Chicago has become a whipping post for everything that is wrong with our communities. Fixing Chicago won't fix most black people's problems. Fixing most black people's problems will fix Chicago."

Thank You For All Kinds of Love!

Thank you for sending me some computer love (hearts)!

For those who love computers.....

For the math lover.......

For those who love stripes.....

For those who love awesome presidents....

For those who love Stitches and not snitches.....

Mother Speaks Out About 12 Year Old Daughter's Strip-Search Experience

Mother Of 1 Of The 4 Black And Latina Girls Strip-Searched At New York School Speaks Out

Breanna Edwards Feb, 14, 2019

Chanderlia Silva has laughter in her voice as she describes her daughter to ESSENCE.

The 12-year-old is a shy girl, Silva notes, although once she gets comfortable she can be super silly. She loves being around people; she loves music (it always came blaring from the speaker in her room); she likes to dance and play with makeup, try on clothes and hang out with her girls.

So, when the music stopped coming from her daughter’s room, when she started sleeping in all day…behavior that was not like the bubbly “girly girl” that her mother knew and loved, Silva became desperately worried.

“I felt like she was going into a stage of depression,” the 28-year-old mother of four told ESSENCE last week, her voice sobering. “She was displaying behaviors of wanting to hurt herself, which definitely put me in a bad space because you never want to see your child go through that. Then, as a mom, I don’t know what to say, I don’t know exactly what to do. In those situations, you don’t want to put her in a more stressful space.”

This would be devastating to anyone. But to a child....this is not acceptable. It has BEEN happening across the country.
A few examples...
