    This is the beginning of what is sure to be an exciting journey. The fact that wearing my hair chemical-free is a "journey" is absurd, but it is sadly true. I have learned and been so inspired by so many other sisters' hair photos & albums, that I felt compelled to publish mine as well.

My Top 5 CDs... period

Summer I would have said "Yep you pay me and that will be $20.00 cash no credit cards please." Then I would have sauntered off cracking the hell up!!


I've heard worse.

A friend of my mother's was at home, waiting for the new care giver for her elderly mother to come. When the caregiver gets there, my ma's friend answers the door, only to get yelled at by the caregiver for being inappropriately dressed for work.

She thought she was the previous caregiver, being relieved from her shift. Because, clearly, black people never have to hire anyone to take care of the elderly. 0.0


That was a very uncomfortable situation and she should have apologized!!!

It happens to white people too!! I can't tell you the many times I have been mistaken for an employee just because I am standing there waiting for someone. And I almost made the same mistake at Target when I saw this girl wearing a red shirt and kaki pants sitting and laughing and chatting with a man in certain aisle and I thought: "I've been here like 10 min. waiting for help and she hasn't noticed" turns out... she didn't work there. Ooops! the clothing fooled me and thank God I did not say anything. I learned that we can be a little "dumb" sometimes.
