Texas our Texas, Always At The Forefront Of Some Mess By K. Amara

  What can I say? There’s always one and soon others will follow suit. Texas is and has been on a MF roll and is definitely with the sh*ts! From voting rights to continuing to police a woman’s uterus, Texas clearly wants ALL the smoke. I mean legit, when Southlake has an entire specialty podcast dedicated to the shenanigous racist behavior going down in their town, you know its Michael Jackson “Bad.” Over the last month or so, our good guvna’ has implemented several pieces of legislation that really has gotten…

Mattress Money By K. Amara

Here at BWNC, there is a strong emphasis on building financial acumen to create generational wealth. So it’s only right to keep the people informed about what’s going on with their money and how it may be severely impacted so let’s get right into it. In a bipartisan effort, Uncle Joe and his colleagues on the Hill passed a bill that will take a cool $1.2 trillion to fix the infrastructure to help curb the impact of natural disasters.

Classically we as women are sworn into modesty from birth. We are sworn into our mothers’ traumas and our fathers’ regrets. No family dynamic is good enough for you to grow into your own and without mistakes. Dress like this, walk like this, talk like this and of course, never be unlady like.

Skirts above the knees just holler coming…

Yes I’ve had boyfriends, I half-way planned a wedding to a man, grew up in the church over half my life, been told I just “haven’t met the right man,” all that shit, but still at the end of the day…I’m muh’fuckin gay okay?

Intentional Parenting by Ayana Conry

There is no rule book to being a parent. For most people, parenting styles are bits and pieces of our own experiences, wanting to (or not wanting to) emulate our parents, the influence of people that we love and trust, society and it’s expectations, and many other outside factors. What I’m realizing though is that parenting is more of an inside job. One thing I’m sure we can all agree on is that there never seems to be enough TIME. Between work, social relationships (romantic and platonic), side hustles, family,…
