Birthday Cake Blues

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EEnefkpRfHE”

Operator: 911 what is your emergency? Caller: My birthday cake is on fire. Operator: Ma’am, stop calling here. Tomorrow is my birthday. When my friends asked me how I felt about yet another year added to my age, I answered: I ain’t dead yet. I didn’t say greaatttttt, like cereal box Tony the Tiger. I […]

Getting Wiggy With It

I am not my hair. I am not this skin. I am not your expectations. I am the soul that lives within.    India Arie – I Am Not My Hair Speaking from the standpoint of a woman who has no clue what her natural hair looks like, I hesitate to jump in feet first to […]

Unmasking the Masked Crusader, the Super Sistah Revealed

I’m feeling bare, stripped, curiously naked and exposed. I’m addicted to privacy and have been from my youth; but there is a time for the dark and there is a time to let the light in. Besides the Superhero aspect of my pseudonym and all its inherent fabulousness, the mask of the Super Sistah appealed […]

Killing Me Softly

Recently someone close to my heart went home to meet his Beloved.  He was here today and then gone like a raging flame suffocated by a lack of oxygen. When precious things are taken from us we wonder about the purpose of life and whether God has a plan. We ask ourselves, is there a […]

Masking the Truth

While most of my friends love my writing style, a few hate my Super Sistah alter ego.  Evoking Sacha Fierce is not acceptable for me but fine for a celebrity like Beyoncé who’s entitled to her creativity.  My friends go on to admit that they despise my Super mask and they think she, me, is […]

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 […]

Warrior War Cry

I can see it now, Rocky running up the stairs with his hands thrown in the air.  The music is blaring in his ears making him take the steps two at a time. No one can stop him.  He’s invincible.  I can see it now, Lenox Lewis entering the stadium with his white silk hood […]

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 […]

Bitch & Her Boots

I had a pair of bitchin’ moon boots back when I was young. I don’t want to date myself but for the infants they are like slouchy boots minus twenty plus years. Back then I already had a healthy self-esteem but in those boots I thought I was the shit. Coming to school that day […]

Beauty Backlash

The Super is not a girly girl. I’m more butch than Barbie. I’m the type of girl whose looks are deceiving. I look like I invest a lot of time in maintaining the pretty. But it’s a lie.  Like all women I like to keep myself up but I find my beauty regime time-consuming and […]

Who’s Bad?

It’s difficult, challenging and downright hard to be good.  Being bad is easy. It requires no effort at all. Waking up in the morning spitting fire and brimstone takes no extra synapses for the brain.  It’s a matter of giving into base impulses and letting it ride. Being evil, mean and nasty only requires letting […]
