3 imageFinally I have returned to BLWN, and clearly I took more than a hiatus. For that I apologize, I don’t realize how many people the lack of our writings effect. As I navigate through my daily movements and get away from the website, I manage to come across somebody asking ‘when is our next post?’ ‘when should I expect something?’ ‘is anything in the works?’ and reluctantly I reply something is on deck. Which in actuality is the truth, my mind is always racing and I have plenty of posts I just don’t sit down and write them. For those people who keep me on my toes thank you kindly. A lot of persistent people our there challenging me and staying on the look for something new. With that said July is a long time many topics were missed and left untouched by the duo here at BLWN. I’m working on writing to everyone more often. If you’re still following we are still here. 2015 will embark on our third year of having the website up and we have had great feedback. Unfortunately we have not put the required effort to keep everyone entertained. Looking forward I will aggressively work on getting back to everyone more expeditiously. Three being the third year is for me. Taking a walk through my thoughts, experiences and understandings is my plan for the website this year. As a duo our lives are constantly changing and our views on the world expanding. With that said I look forward to the new challenges life has to offer. It’s entirely too many things going on that I have not touched on.

Three years is a long time, many changes have occurred during that time. (more…)

What’s going on good people, guess who’s back!!  It appears we took an extended amount of time off and trust we’ve been catching all the flack.   I, personally, have let a few amazing topics slide out of my grips.  Of course, I want to thank everyone who continued to press me and ask for more.  I also appreciate the people who have been on the site, tell others about the site, and refer back. That means we’re really saying something worth reading.  Don’t stop challenging us here at BLWNL.com we need that.   With that being said, I stumbled across some motivation recently listening to the new Slaughterhouse mixtape.  Slaughterhouse is a rap group formed of four members from different areas across the country, the most recognizable name being Joe Budden.  He has a song entitled “Trade It All”, which really caught my attention and got me back in the labs again.   It’s crazy how a small spark can start a full fire.

The  verse goes,

What’s good free world? It’s one half of the duo ready to hit y’all in the head with another post. After some discussion with my right hand man, we figured we should try to write a post geared more towards our female readers. I know as young black men, we sometimes get caught up seeing the world through only our Ray Bans. But we also know that’s it’s a whole other world when looked through a woman’s eyes. So with that out the way let’s get down to business.

Quick question ladies who would you rather be Mary Jane or Olivia Pope? If you don’t know who these ladies are as a black woman in America, you must obviously live under the rock. But for those living in the caves, Mary Jane and Olivia Pope are lead fictional characters on award winning dramas on national television. Basically the shows chronicle the everyday lives of the two ladies, the ups, the downs, the lows, the highs and everything in between. I think the concept of the shows are unique in the sense that they have black women being the lead characters. Lately I have been asking women that I have come across who would they rather be in real life Mary Jane or Olivia Pope and so far I have been getting back mixed answers. (more…)
