Sistah Support System

Social Service, called welfare back in the day, was built originally to support the needs of the nation’s poor, needy and sick. The goal of the program was to give a helping hand to those without support. Whether you agree with the program in its current form, its originators understood one basic human fact: all […]

Saying Sorry Sucks

Saying sorry sucks. I know this because when you’ve cut the hair off as many of your sister’s Barbie dolls as I have, saying sorry doesn’t just slip smoothly from the lips. That said, I confess that as I’ve gotten older saying sorry has become even more difficult. There have been times when I’ve had […]

Dating Dot-Com

Guess what, Super? I’ve found a man! Word? (I love when I get a chance to say that.) Yup, he’s good between the sheets, he’s kind and I think we’re on our way to being in love. Your man-less drought has come to an end. Thank you, Lord! (She’ll now buy a lot less batteries.) […]

Lady Killer

Do you have T&A (tits and ass for those who don’t text)? If you do you might as well mark a red X on your back because you’re going down?  Some women don’t like other women, so much so that without provocation they’re always in the process of plotting a sister’s downfall and demise. Most […]

Forgive or Forget You!

We are taught from the cradle to forgive and forget. If you’ve every been trapped between the pews on a Sunday wearing a too tight dress and uncomfortable shoes, then you know that the good book says to turn the other cheek.  The ability to forgive is a virtue and a gift.  For many it […]

Super Save a Hoe

Some women are hoes. Capital H.O.E. ‘How you gonna write about empowerment and call women derogatory names?’ I can hear the criticism ringing in my ears. My response is that we can’t pretend that some women aren’t a little bit too free. I said it and mi nah tek back no talk which in patois […]

Black Girls Don’t Cry

When I was young I used to fight, brawl and roll around wrestling in the grass. My life was like an episode of Basketball Wives. Now that I’m grown, I’ve learned some things and realized that a karate chop to the windpipe is no way to communicate. As I’ve matured I’ve learned to get my […]

Fake Me, Real Who?

Without shame, guilt or remorse I admit that the Super does not always practice what she preaches. I’m not as positive as I seem. I’m not the best black friend everyone needs. I fall short of being the über confident and uplifting woman I claim to be. In person one might be a little surprised […]

Friendship Reformulated

When popular products fail companies yank their best brands off the shelves and bring them back to the lab for reformulation. Sometimes our relationships need the same treatment.  It’s necessary at times to break things down in order to build them back up. This is the case with long-term friendships.  I have a friend I’ve […]

Blogging while Black

Like driving while black, blogging while black comes with occupational risks. Just like fights break out on the playground, the blogosphere can be a hostile place filled with bullying kids.  Recently I clashed with a site that made me feel like I was Rodney King and they were the cops. It’s a big bad blog with […]

Bitter Best Friend

My sister says that when I walk down the street people see me coming. She claims I have a bounce to my step and an attitude that says here I come or for my Jamaican readers, “see mi ya.” I never gave her observation much thought.  But recently I realized that not only was I […]

Girl Fight

When men think of the words Girl Fight they instantly conjure visions of muddy girls in bikinis pulling hair and slapping each other hard enough to make panties fly.  When women fight in reality it’s less sexy.  Michelle Rodriquez is not bobbing and weaving Mohammed Ali style looking tough and sultry.  When they exchange words it […]
