"Introverts don’t get lonely if they don’t socialize with a lot of people, but we do get lonely if we don’t have intimate interactions on a regular basis."

note to critics of the world: When you’re talking to African-American women, don’t use the tired “angry black woman” stereotype.
New York Times critic Alessandra Stanley, whose journalism career includes a laundry list of inaccuracies and errors, published a disgusting assessment of how Rhimes and her hit ABC series Scandal have changed the television landscape for black women.
"When Shonda Rhimes writes her autobiography," Stanley begins, "it should be called How to Get Away With Being an Angry Black Woman."
- Do not forget Michael Brown
- Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
- Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
- Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
- Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
- Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
- Do not forget Ferguson

More from Shaun King.
Guys, please share this everywhere. Shaun King exposed a very integral And deliberate LIE told by the chief of police to protect Darren Wilson, Mike Brown’s murderer. Shaun shows us with PICTURES that Mike Brown was over 100 feet away when Darren Wilson started shooting at him compared to what the STL PD are saying which is that Mike was 35 feet away. They lied about this purposely because officers are encouraged to protect themselves when someone who poses a threat is within 35 feet. Mike Brown was over 100 feet away. He posed no threat. Share this everywhere.
Man they’re truly willing to do anything to justify the killing of this boy.

When I saw this article from takepart about Black &SexyTv I got really excited, because their show are the TRUTH! And I wish some of them would make it on tv. These show are everything B.E.T needs.
Black and Sexy TV was founded by four filmmakers—Numa Perrier, Dennis Dortch, Jeanine Daniels, and Brian Ali-Harding—in 2011 and takes its name from Dortch’s 2008 feature, A Good Day to Be Black and Sexy, which showed at the Sundance Film Festival. Though the channel began with just one program, it has grown to include six: The Couple, Hello Cupid, That Guy, Roomieloverfriends, The Number, andYellow. The series are each distinct but are grounded by a through line of authentic black experience, especially regarding love and sex.
Here’s a list of show from YouTube not all from Black&SexyTv you should check out when you got time.
The Misadventure of Awkward Black Girl
