Are you insane?


Definition of insanity... doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results!


We resolve to do better.  Make long lists, create vision boards, throw out the little "black book," clear out the pantry, buy a gym membership, and buy the latest self-help book. All in the hopes to better ourselves....

trey's new article for the Huffington Post - State Of Emergency for Black Girls
 sweet little brown girl
Lately, I've become overly aware of little black girls between the ages of six to eleven years old. Little black girls with thick, short or long braids. Sometimes in their hair, they have a dozen rainbow colourful clips or multicolored beads, or tiny braids cane-rowed tightly into beautiful masterpieces. Their hair parted four million little ways with heavily greased scalps. They have thick beautiful lips, flat cute noses,and soulful big eyes. Their chocolate brown skin glistening, yet often they have forgotten to lotion ashy elbows or knees.
These little black girls remind me of myself. And I look for me in them...
