No hetero?


I was sitting with one of my good friends this evening and the topic of heterosexual black men was the topic.....




We talked about how at one point is was pretty easy to spot a hetero man vs. a homo man....




But with todays fashion the same men that flocked to the stores for baggy rocawear jeans,long white tees,and crisp jordans have since traded that in for purple skinny jeans,Vnecks and skateboard shoes....But why?these are the same men who laughed a few years ago.....
Has gay become the new black?
I think its all pretty 'homo'...
The wonderful thing about fashion is that it doesnt define you.....But the old saying 'perception is reality' holds pretty true to me.


I cant really get with a 'grown man' wearing jeans that would give they average woman a yeast infection ridding on a damn skateboard.


It hot that Wayne,Kanye,and Pharrell have inspired young people of color to be different,but whats next now that 'different' is now mainstream?

  1. I understand what ur saying but i've been on the whole skateboarding thing since i was younger..and i understand how music artist seem to be the ones changing people and making them different as to how i took it.. But ur making it seem like every body who wear skateboard sneakers tight jeans etc are posers..and u would never date a guy with them. well to me ..if a guy was all hood before has no right because they where the ones laughing at gays and etc. Well when i firts went to highschool wearing my tight skiiny jeans everyone hated but then started following..then i seen weezy and all these other srtist wearing them..and it was wierd cause they didnt get it from me..cause i doubt they seen me..but that made other feel ooo they wear it so i could. My point though is that theirs nothing wrong with tight jeans cause that just marks history.. Pilgrims to, the 80's to the Romeo and Juliet Legging look things....I mean men actually wore jeans tighter than women throughout history where women werent even allowed to wear anything of such fabric.. (jeans) so basically now that jeans are mainstream for girls they adopted the right to call them girl jeans or whatever..but their wrong..And i've personally been upset that tight jeans , a vNeck..and etc has been a mainstream item now but the worst part is the Vans song..when that come out..Crowds went ballistic and hoped on that swagg. The Guys werent even wearing skinnys then. And now Jerk just ruined the justice and Also the whole SUPRA footwear..WOw..THeir like jordans now..And everybodies wearign themm..I'm over it.... Well i just wanted to comment and show u..that u could i wrote this in a way that not directed to some of the people who started these trends etc.and more soo forwarded the article to the people who think they can wear these trends. when they did make fun of those whom wore it first..Hypocrrrrraaacccyy ..

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness.

As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own.

As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues. 
Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work...
So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events, hell how t…

So I did a thing.... Chapter 1

This is the story of how my life was changed (again) in a matter of a few months... Its taken a while to process everything that has happened in my healing, the journey and ultimately what is next for me ... So bare with me as I tell this LONG story, Ill include pictures though to make it kinda fun...I have dealt with a lot of depression and anxiety stemming from this entire situation because of things that went wrong, things that were left unattended (by my own hand) and ultimate outcome...But I want to share my story because I know that someone else is hurting in silence and could use some help. While I don't have all the answers ,or maybe any some days, I have my story
On February 19th at 12:30pm, I had 19cm/ 3.06 pound fibroid and 8+ pounds of excess skin removed in the same 6 hour long procedure.... Days later I had to have 2 blood transfusions due to the loss of blood in surgery and after.  Apparently things got scary (I didn’t know,I had a TON of morphine in my system ).
I…

Chapter 6 .....Silvia

And just like that.... I had a date.

The scramble began, I had to cram 6-8 weeks of recovery plans in a matter of 10 days....

Oh, and  I mention this is my final semester of my degree?
So yea on top of working full time, trying to navigate through my interpersonal relationships,  and processing whatever is about to happen, I had to navigate what this could possibly look like for the last of my education.

via GIPHY
I was extremely emotional at this point and probably closer to my breaking point that what I honestly wanted to admit..........
I was scared.
Scared of the pain, the recovery, the incision, hell how my body would look and feel because I had honestly just adjusted to the initial weight loss and of course dying.
While both procedures are fairly simple, its rare that they are done together....So I had no clue what to expect but that I was going to be in pain...
I got my tribe together for surgery/recovery plans, bought plenty of wine (they like red wine),and started really proc…
