Single Girl Day Out: Get Out Review

Like one of my favorite women ever Wendy Williams, when I write a story I like to give you guys a back story before I get to the story. This past Sunday I was heading to work thinking I had to work, when I get there my boss tell me to go home she need me for Monday morning. So, I was heading home when I was reading down my friends’ timeline about the movie “get out” so instead heading home I went to see this so-called controversial movie. And when I say I have not been entertained by a movie in a long time, this movie kept me at the edge of my seat. I don’t want to spoiled the movie, but it touches some topics that is swept under the rug so to speak.



Kinda crazy that we had a black president, legalized gay marriage and accepted transgender people (some will say force to accept) but people still have a problem with interracial relationships. The movie address that common fear that black people have when it comes to interracial dating, growing up my parents made it very clear to me at an early age that they didn't want me to date outside my race. And as I gotten older I made a decision for myself to stay dating within my race, not because of my parents but because I love black men so much that I don’t see myself with no other race other than my own. But in the movie, it killed me how she tried to make it seem like he was crazy when he told her that her family didn’t like him. Plus, the fact that she didn’t tell her family that he was black beforehand would have been my warning to get the fuck out of there. And I did see posts after the movie of black women, telling black men to leave white women alone (but I doubt this movie will not stop black men from dating white women I'm just saying).


But what I love about this movie was his best friend, (who is true best friend’s goals by the way) rod Williams played by LilRel Howery. His best friend told him from the jump that the whole situation was fishy, but as well all know (well black women know) black men love to found out the hard way. But what I loved is that he knew that something was off, and he kept looking for his friend; and wasn’t going to stop until he found his friend. Even made a fool of himself going to the police station trying to report his friend missing, seeing how his friend went hard to go find him made me want to have a sit down with my few friends; and asked them would they do the same for me. 

But overall the movie was so good, I will be going a 2nd time to see this movie that how good it was to me. But these are one of those movies that black family need to take their children to see, because there are questions that your children will that they need answers too like interracial relationships, racism, hypnosis, and friendship etc. etc. etc. I don’t want to spoil the movie for others, but go support this movie you will enjoy yourself.

When Hurt People Hurt: Nas and Kelis

You can’t fix what you didn’t break. Sometimes the demons we face, are not the person we’ve dated fault. We’ll never know the demons anyone truly face, until they decide if they want to take it out on us. We try to be there and show them something different but soon realize their demons are slowly killing us. As I come to learn a man is his mother image. A man is what his mother make him to be, he may carry out some of his father actions; but his character come from his mother. Like a woman is what her father tell her to be. Whether he speak it with his words or speak it with his actions (by not being in her life), a woman carry her father words with her everywhere she goes and in all of her relationships. That why sometimes when a man is reckless, if his mother understand his actions then no one else opinion of him even matter. Vice versa with a woman. We chose to play doctor but doesn’t stay around to fully cure that person injuries. We just add more cuts, to an already wounded soul…

My Thoughts on Love Is...

As I always say, when the love is real it not meant for anyone on the outside to understand. I always ask women “what would they do for love?” Some women answer, while some just look at me like I’m crazy. Everyone loves to claim they have a limitation on love. However, as one told me you only have limitation when you haven’t met your match. Now, before I could write this story I had to re-watch this series twice just to make sure I was understanding what I was watching. Therefore, after watching this show I got something to say and it won’t be pretty. My new addiction celebrating black love is Love Is”, which tells the origin story of a modern-day love, before social media came and destroyed well trying to destroy love for everyone. This show has become the topic of discussion more than this season of “Insecure” (I’m still waiting for that wow moment of this season). Love Is_ is set in '90s. And tells the story of two Black creatives who fall for each other quickly. Nuri works as…

What to Do When A Person Ghost You

We all knew this day was coming and now it time I write about it. This Sunday night, was the season finale of “insecure." Now, before I get to the point of the story I must share my thoughts of this whole season. I was looking for that spark this season like season one, and two, but I didn’t receive one until the end. Even the whole Daniel and Issa storyline that was a letdown. When I saw she brought back Lawrence I was hoping that finally they would work it out, but again Lawrence on that bitch ass shit. However, the relationship between Nathan and Issa was the talk on black twitter. While Issa thoughts she finally met a good guy who challenge her, Nathan proved that “the lighter the eyes, the bigger the lies.” While we have to wait until Next Year to see exactly where this relationship will go, Nathan pulled a move that was close to home for many people. It hurt like hell when a person leave you without any warning or reasons. It leave you asking yourself, “What did you do?” We…
