The Continuing Rise In Brazilian Butt Lifts & The Pressure To Be Curvy (Video)

Hmm. Did not know that Oprah brought this trend to light way back when it started. SUre wish the ladies did not feel like they need to risk their health and lives to get those bumps and humps we like. Please find those who love you just as you are ladies and rock with them. We cannot appreciate anything about that ‘new’ body if you are gone. Don’t give in to the pressure.

That said, I know it cannot be easy to live in a world where there is such social pressure to do what others (stars especially) already do to be more appealing. Watch this discussion on it whether you are thinking of doing something to your body or not, or know someone who might. Understanding is key.

In today’s social media society, Black women are faced with the pressure to be curvy. With the rise of the Kardashian Klan and the affordability of a Brazilian butt lift, the panel comes together to discuss the recent surge in plastic surgery amongst Black women. Can you go under the knife and still love yourself?

Food/Business: Slutty Vegan Levels Up From A Food Truck To A Restaurant In Westview, Atlanta (Video)

This PINKY, nyuh!!

Well, it is her dream; still going and growing strong. Now she has a brick-and-mortar location to serve her patrons. Apparently, Slutty Vegan’s meatless fare with a flare is in high demand. In the South, where we kill and fry everything that won’t defend itself or run, that is quite an accomplishment!

So, I Googled up an Atlanta Eater article on the situation for the numbers: over 1200 served the first day at Westview AND the ‘Gram is on pace to reach 100K followers ASAP.

Impressive, Pinky. Impressive!

Oh, I learned of all this when I saw the homie BigDee noting on his FB timeline that he waited in line for upwards of two hours at the new restaurant to order. Hope it was worth it. Scratch that. Bet your pockets it WILL be worth it if Mr. McRib-Over-Every-Sandwich is willing to wait that long… unless Dee comes back over here and comments otherwise.

Rooting for you, Pinky!

Being Sean: The Battle At ‘Golden Corral’… A Special ’30-For-30’

Wow! There is an awesome mix of ‘now that is a damn shame’ and ‘getting the train back on the right track’ in this latest blog post from the homie Sean ‘Cisco.’ And if you aren’t chiming in with “amens” every now and then as you read, maybe you’re in the wrong ‘meeting.’ Check back in an hour. We ‘Waist Watchers’ will be done by then.

There’s A Reason It’s Called Golden Corral…

It’s been a while since I told you about my progress on losing weight and that’s because….I gained weight. Yup picked up quite a few pounds, 30 to be exact. I know you are saying “Whoa, what happened?” Well….life happened. Remember when I told in previous stories that I am an emotional eater? The emotions don’t have to be negative. Happy get food just as fast as stress and anger. Shoot that’s why McDonald’s named the combo “Happy Meal”. How many people are going to order a “depressed meal” or a “pissed off meal”? It doesn’t work that way…

Advice: GaryVee Speaks On ‘Real Wealth’ (Video)

Win for yourself, and help others win, too. Be a badazz biz person AND help others along the way. Gary Vaynerchuk declares that we can be and do both; that, in fact, the world would be a better place if we moved in that manner… for us and everyone!

Every day I remind myself that I am incredibly lucky to be a healthy human being. Once you have your gratitude and perspective, there really are very few things that can damage your mindset and the overall wealth of your life.

Cavalli Talks To His Terminally Ill Grandpa About His Coming Death (Video)

Sometimes you need a good cry. Coach Jim Valvano (aka Jimmy V, late great ESPN commentator and namesake of the Espys cancer courage award) said you need to think, laugh, and be moved to tears DAILY to have one helluva life. That, plus that I am all about FAMILY, made posting this a must-do for me. Very emotional, but you gotta watch!

Steve Harvey’s Response To An Audience With A Stuttering Problem Is Literally Therapeutic (Video)

Respek on Steve Harvey’s name for this. All this. The sista is beautiful. It was just that her situation was ugly. But it looks like that is about to look up for her.

When an audience member asks about dating with a stutter, Steve opens up about his own personal struggle. This may be the most powerful moment yet.
Steve Harvey TV

I sooo wanted to start this post with just how fine the sista in this is… But I wanted her to be taken seriously (just as she desires, per the clip). Of course, I did slide her into the Noon spot (because she is definitely some Eye Candy).

Glidecycling Looks Fun (Video)

…at least more fun than just jogging.

This bike without pedals is actually better for your joints than running.

Yep, the Glidecycle may well change the way you think about running (or gliding, or um ri-cycling, or… ah let marketing figure out a name for it).

Racist History Of American Medicine (Documentary Short)

You don’t have to tell me about racism in medicine and research. I. Am. From. Tuskegee, Alabama! Watch the video and you will learn why that matters, too.

People of color in the U.S. have endured centuries of abuse in the name of science. It’s time we stop celebrating this blatantly racist history.

Skin Bleaching In South Africa (Video)

In the U.S. we beat our chests and proclaim, “Black Lives Matter,” “Black And Proud,” even “Wakanda Forever,” and some of our brothers & sisters in South Africa feel compelled to risk breaking the law and getting cancer by chemically lightening their skin??? Sad and shocking…

South Africa’s skin bleaching scandal: Unreported World went to South Africa where the use of controversial skin bleaching creams is on the rise in a new generation. Despite strict laws banning dangerous chemicals they’re widely available and are making people ill. Reporter Tania Rashid met a celebrity who endorses skin bleaching despite the risks and some of those that are trying to end the trade.

Event: Hip-Hop Stew Launch Party

Was checking out Techniques Radio on WREK.org last night and they got the word out on this Hop Stew Launch Party. Looks like a good look for the long weekend. Consider chilling and partying with a cause for at least part of this party weekend. More, much more, at HopStew.com but here’s a good blurb on the event…

Hop Stew Launch will be a fun-filled day party with performances from Hip-Hop legend El Da Sensei of The Artifacts, Shabaam Sahdeeq, John Robinson, Beneficence, Stahhr and Phoenyx. It’s going to be a boom bap extravaganza for true Hip-Hop lovers! Our launch will be hosted by Fort Knox! Music will be provided by DJ Dug Boogie and DJ Fudge. Patrons can enjoy an amazing art exhibit. Hop Stew will be donating a portion of all funds raised at launch to the Kidney Foundation. In 2016, our beloved Dug Boogie was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) which there is no cure for. Boogie needs a kidney transplant. So, one can only imagine why The Kidney Foundation is a cause dear to our hearts. The launch is geared towards raising funds and awareness. Hop Stew is Hip-Hop for a cause!
