African-American Women: Where They Stand
Next to the Dishwasher, Hopefully!
Anyone catch any of this series on the NBC Nightly News about black women called African-American Women: Where They Stand? If figured I might, since you 'bags know I seek out contentious race issues, but I don't watch the nightly news anyway, and I wasn't about to start for some shit like this. Plus, I've been working nights this week at the BGM.
Of course, come to find out, you can watch the entire thing, plus mad bonus footage and shit, on the NBC website. I watched the following bit, on "redefining black families," for a story I did for XXL today. I'd watch the rest of it, but I've gotta leave in a little bit, on my way to Memphis. More on that (maybe) Monday.
My bad about the picture of the broad with the skee ball a.k.a. the little brother. Ironically enough, the segment has to do with the fact that so many black women have a hard time finding a spouse. According to the grim statistics stated in the piece, over 40% of black women have never been married, compared to only 16% of white women. Could it be the haircut? I'm just saying.

Ghostface Killah - The Big Doe Rehab: Album Review
Ghostface Killah, The Big Doe Rehab (Def Jam, 2007)
As I mentioned in a story the other day on the god-awful new Wu-Tang album, Ghostface Killah's ability to tell the difference between a good idea and a bad one is just plain unparalleled. This is Ghost's third album in the past year or so, following last year's critically acclaimed Fishscale and its bonus disc More Fish.
Would you bang a broad who was pregnant?
What if it was Christina Aguilera?
I don't know. Pregnant women usually have ridonkulously large cans, and lord knows I've been guilty of staring at a pregnant woman's cans over the years. But the stomach thing does kinda gross me out, especially having accidentally stumbled upon my share of disgusting pregnant woman pr0n over the years. To me, it just makes a woman look that much more like an animal. Which I suppose we all are, but still.
I'm not saying I wouldn't go for it, given the opportunity, I'm just saying.
Check the full-size pictures, from the January '08 issue of Marie Claire, after the jump. For research purposes, of course.

The Real World: Sydney - Episode 18: Episode Summary
Tonight's episode picks up right where last week's episode left off, with Parisa and Trisha going at it. Trisha calls her old man and brags that she just pushed a fat girl. Meanwhile, Parisa is outside in the hallway shouting shit about how Trisha doesn't care about her family, she thinks Christianity is a superior religion to Islam, and she's put on a gut since she moved in the house.
Trisha's old man tries to get her to apologize for pushing Parisa, but Trisha's not having it, especially with Parisa going off on her like that. Also, you get the idea that Parisa is going to try to have Trisha kicked out of the house regardless. After their little exchange, Parisa goes off somewhere to cool off, while the rest of the group debates whether Parisa is really going to go through with it.
Video of the Year: Sensual Seduction
Five reasons why "Sensual Seduction" is the best video evar:
1) The whole song is about dropping a load. (Nullus.)
2) There's an obvious homage to the video for "When Doves Cry."
3) While he sings sensual seduction in the video, the real name of the song is "Sexual Eruption."
4) His hoes have that blank look on their faces, like the hoes from those Robert Palmer videos.
5) At one point, Snoop's hand comes dangerously close to one of his hoes' boobs.
