Word of the Day: Nappy

"Hair distinctive to some Africans and Americans of African descent. If taken care of properly, it is very beautiful, thick, and soft. And people actually DO wash natural, nappy hair."

Clearing it out.

Hi all!

Just quickly wanna clear something about my previously topic here. It's been a lot comments there, which I do enjoy to read. :)

My standpoint about the last topic is that this was just a THOUGHT and not necessary what I think. This is a thought I wanted to drop after a conversation between me and my friend. I'm aware that it can be a bit controversy and stereotyped. And my point is not to say it is this way. Just wanted to drop off a topic I think some people out there might have.

I know, for fact, this is not all true. And I know everyone have there own individual preferences and thoughts. So, I am not looking at black women as a "group doing this and thinking that". It's just a question - to go forward! :)

Thanks for all the comments! Really interesting and necessary answers!

See you soon and til than - stay blessed!

A question in my head

Hey y'all! I'm still in NYC - and I love this city! Beautiful place, beautiful people and the vibe is unique!

There is this question stuck in my head and it has in some ways got clearer while being here. I might be wrong, but I gotta drop my thought.
In some ways I think, this is a thought that might be wrong, that most of the black women that like white men, are looking for white guys that are living the "white life". I mean like typical, from the media focused, "white life". I can't really describe it, and probably there is no such thing, but you know what I mean - more in a metaphors way.

Is this thought of mine in any way true? I'm curious to see your answers!

In my hand, I sometime feel like I've got into a "grey zone" - I sometimes get the impression my way of "adepting to the black culture" is seeing as something negative (negative is not really the right word, but...). But I gotta make this clear - im not adepting anything, I'm just being myself. I happen to love a lot of the "black music", i'm probably using a lot of words that some people would relate to the "black culture", I'm probably wearing a special type of clothes, etc etc. But I'm just being me.

But I'm curious to get some feedback, critique, and reflection on my thought! :)

In no where

Sitting out in nowhere. In a small town called Haverhill, outside Boston. Crazy place. Like a town in some movie. Beautiful but scary. And guess what, no black women here. Weird town. Gotta continue!
