"Statistics show that 1 in 4 women in the US is a victim of domestic violence, those numbers jump to 1 in 2 if they are married to a cop.
Law Enforcement officers beat their significant other at nearly double the national average. Several studies, according to Diane Wetendorf, author of Police Domestic Violence: Handbook for Victims, indicate that women suffer domestic abuse in at least 40 percent of police officer families. For American women overall, the figure is 25 percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”

    Duro Olowu, the eponymous Nigerian label based in London, recently showcased it’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection on the second day of London Fashion Week SS 15. Mixing diverse prints with vibrant colors, the collection is an exhibition of creative exuberance with it’s elaborate shapes and cuts.

    The inspiration for his collection this season came from a trip to the Senegalese island of Saint-Louis, where the collection’s appliquéd starched brocade was made and which supplied Olowu with his Spring ’15 palette. He also cited the cover art for the album The Pointer Sisters, Ozu’s film Drunken Angel and Japanese film noir in general and 1940s pinups as inspirations. The retro influence is apparent in the signature multi print tea dresses and the styling of his lookbook where his modern prints are in contrast to the chintz settee. (see more on stylevitae)

To solve the problem, his grandmother taught him how to sew. 
Since Bridges started his company, Mo’s Bows, he has been featured on Shark Tank, and in Vogue and GQ magazines.

Excellent piece in The Daily Beast on Fannie Lou Hamer.

Remembering Civil Rights Heroine Fannie Lou Hamer: ‘I’m Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired’
By Lottie L. Joiner
Fifty years ago, civil rights leader Fannie Lou Hamer spoke before the 1964 Democratic National Convention in Atlantic City—and her speech became one of the most pivotal moments of the Civil Rights Movement.
Fannie Lou Hamer wasn’t one of those dainty, soft-spoken Southern ladies who drank sweet tea with a congenial smile and a Sunday go-to-church wide-brimmed hat.
No. She was a tough, in-your-face, tell-it-like-it-is presence who spoke truth to power and stood up to the white power structure that ruled the state of Mississippi. Hamer’s big spirit was only matched by her passion for civil and human rights.

    The grass ain’t always greener.

    ok. wow. just no words.

    It’s another case of sheer ignorance. He thought it was funny and probably would have laughed at his sister or one of his friends because he doesn’t realize we can be KILLED and or maimed in those encounters.  It’s not about the grass not being greener. It’s choosing someone who get’s it.

    White men will never be there for WoC. You can date him for x amount of years, he can say I love you x amount of times but when it comes down to a matter of your existence as a person of color - They. don’t. give. a. shit.

    That goes for anyone dating a white person. Don’t fool yourself into believing they’re different.

    They’re not.
