What Hillary Clinton’s Loss Means For Dumb Black Women

AFRICANGLOBE - It was late Tuesday night, into the early morning, when fear set in. Trump takes Florida flashed across the screen. Florida. Florida? The battleground state had swung right. But it wasn’t until later, Pennsylvania, a state Obama won last election, delivered the final blow. Social media was ablaze with memes. The #Mood hashtag reflects feelings of voters in disbelief. We went into the election confident Hillary would make history as the first woman president.

Most White Women Sided With Trump Not Hillary

AFRICANGLOBE - One might think Donald Trump's sexist and vulgar statements would sway female voters away from the candidate. But roughly 53% of white women voted for Trump on Tuesday.

Meet Ten Of The Greatest Black American Female Athletes Of All...

AFRICANGLOBE - There was a time that if little Black girls tried out for sports the odds were against them making the team.

However, those times have changed dramatically and now they are becoming some of the greatest athletes of all times. Now, when a little Black girl tries out for a sports team the question that goes through everyone’s mind is “will she be the next greatest player of the sport?” Here are 10 of the greatest African-American women who have either paved the way or are still paving the way for Black women athletes.

Black Is Beautiful, Stop Bleaching Your Skin

ARICANGLOBE - Recently, I met an old friend from high school who I had not seen in awhile. I remember her from back in the day with her radiant dark skin and an exuberant personality. Alas, her face had turned uncharacteristically light with prominent scarring and widespread discoloration. Surprisingly, her arms and legs have remnants of her original skin tone. She now wears the niqaab or face-veil and became introverted. She says she was happier with her natural skin and now she spends a lot of money to restore a healthy skin. My old friend is not alone in this misery.

Brazil’s Black Hair Revolution Continues! Photos From The Curly/Kinky Hair Pride...

AFRICANGLOBE - Early this afternoon, a friend of mine sent a link to me of an article/video that she found from the U.S. Black women’s magazine website Essence about Afro-Brazilian women making transitions from straightened hair to natural kinks, coils and curls. Entitled “Afro-Brazilian Hair Stories”, it perfectly captured the experiences of so many Black Brazilian women coming to find beauty in their natural tresses in a country in which their self-esteem is assaulted daily with negative comments, jokes, laughter and even job rejections all because afro-textured hair has for centuries been discriminated against and considered ugly, unprofessional, uncivilized and the like by white society.

Head Games – The Gantt Report

AFRICANGLOBE - One of the worst things you can do to a woman is comment on her hair! I admit it, I don’t get it! When considering a woman, a good man will look way past a woman’s hair. He will look into her eyes, he will observe her smile. The very best men will look for what lasts when they consider a lady. They will look at her heart, her honesty, her level of respect, her character, the way she lives, the amount she contributes and gives, how she relates to adults and children, how she manages money, how she manages her home or business and the best men will look at how a woman sees him!

Black Feminism – A Cancer In The Black Community

AFRICANGLOBE - Some Black women in America today have allowed The Massa to psychologically brainwash them into thinking that Black men are these “superpredators” and “the biggest threat” to them when we know that this isn’t true. The gender studies classes they have in college, I see them as becoming more of a breeding ground for radical and Black feminists nowadays.

Black Bodies, White Terrorism: A Global Re-Imaging Of Forgiveness

AFRICANGLOBE - Apartheid was white terrorism. What the British did during the Kenyan Mau Mau was white terrorism. Dylann Roof was a white terrorist, supported by state sanctioned institutions of white terrorism. We do not negotiate with terrorists. That’s what America teaches. Except white terrorism. Then we don’t negotiate; we privilege; we prioritize; we centralize. White supremacy does not worship our God. It prays at the altar of coffins filled with Black bodies. It tithes in the blood of Black folks. Its hymn is the sound of our tears and screams. Its amen is the stillness of our stolen breath.
