Ask Rachel

During the Rachel Dolezal debacle, like everyone else, I viewed the situation with confusion, perplexity and saw the hilarity behind the sad saga. If you’ve been living in a cave and missed the controversy, or worse, you don’t have Internet or cable, then allegedly, Rachel is a white woman who gained and kept her position […]

Too Busy Ballin’

I’ve had some positive life changes recently. Things are looking up, up, up. As with most changes, even positive ones come with their fair share of challenges. When life takes a turn in the right direction sometimes we unintentionally lose sight of what’s important. If you’re like me you get distracted and let certain things […]

Mute, Miserable, Misses

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zLfCnGVeL4″

Too many of us interact with women who don’t speak. They have no words. What we get from them is only silence and the sound of crickets. A peep or a chirp doesn’t escape their lips. From the minute they hit the doors of their workplace their personalities and their vocal cords fade to black. […]

Battle of the Sexes – Mister versus Missus

Despite 5 inch heels that can crack backs and shatter a short man’s ego, in spite of six-figure incomes ballin enough to make the blue collar brother cry, and contrary to the societal shift that has put some sisters in the driver’s seat, still, after years of evolution, women still haven’t changed. No matter how […]

Black Girl Blues

Oprah is off the air but I remember one of the quotes from her final show. She said: The show has taught me that there is a common thread that runs through all of our pain and all of our suffering and that is unworthiness. Not feeling worthy enough to own the life you were […]

Barren or Baby?

The Super has no babies, no bambinos, no chile and no children. My mama is a granny without a single grandchild to her name. When I was getting educated she rejoiced in my childlessness and would tell anyone who would listen that I was pursuing perfection and had no time for a passel load of […]

How do you eat a Tiger? With little chews. If you have ever been overwhelmed by trying to pursue your dreams then you know how daunting trying to succeed can be. Recently I had a chat with my sister.  She’s trying to be Super but is struggling.  I instantly gave her some encouragement. What kind […]

Envy – The New Green

Envy is a sin. Ask anybody. No need to consult your Bible.  It’s one of the seven deadly sins.  Trust me. As I write this the Super is green. Not the fashionable forest color but the green of guacamole and late night drinking.  I’m the color of wasabi sauce minus the sushi.  I’m the hue […]

The Most Super Sistah

People are losing jobs, homes are being foreclosed upon and the state of the economy and America’s financial future is at risk.  Things are looking bad for a good portion of the population but as the gospel artist Donnie McClurkin sings, We All Fall Down, But We Get Up.  So instead of worrying about things […]

Work Hard for the Money

I prayed for a job. Went down on bended knee and asked God to rescue me from unemployment. After months of hitting the pavement and watching my bank account dwindle to nothing, my prayers were answered.  The negative balance in the bank account turned towards the positive. All was well in the world or was […]

Flight Lessons for the Unemployed

Even Super Sistah needs a 9-5.  But like a million other Americans I was a victim of the tough U.S job market. Where I live in New York it was brutal with nary a job, a hustle or a gig in sight. I had all the credentials and looked good on paper, but after job […]
