I have been raised in a very open-minded family. My mother, has always been exceptional.

Our school was now integrated school and the questions and interest was sincere. My mom, took a stand and bridged the gap.

Long gone are the days when a new practice of plastic surgery was considered for World War I soldiers who suffered horrendous and disfiguring wounds and burns. Or when gangsters like John Dillinger underwent plastic surgery to alter their appearance in order to avoid FBI capture.

I don’t remember the last time I saw my natural hair in its full glory.From since I was a kid, my mom would coat my hair strands with chemicals to achieve a straight, foreign to my race look. Over the years, I constantly tossed around the idea of going natural. However, it’s hard to decide such a thing when no one in your immediate family supports your decision.

Is This Delicious Soul Food Killing Us?
I am going to jump on the black woman weight loss/healthy eating bandwagon, but I am going to come from a slightly different perspective.

I had to have a heart to heart with my mother that this food is killing us.
