When President Mahmoud Abbas took center stage at the UN General Assembly last Friday, there was a resounding applause and standing ovation throughout the packed room from the assembly floor all the way to the visitor’s gallery that quite honestly lasted much longer than I expected. As he humbly nodded and walked towards the podium, it was evident that this moment and this very address were going to be historic. Routinely interrupted with cheering, even more applause and ovations as he emphatically made statements like ‘no one with a conscious can reject our bid for statehood,’ Abbas clearly had the support of most in that UN building. But it wasn’t difficult to see where the line of discontent occurred. Sitting in silent opposition were the few member nations staunchly against any notion of granting Palestine its own viable state through the UN. This small minority encompassed several European countries and the United States.

I recently read about a “study” that was conducted by bestblackdatingsites.org that seemed to get the attention of quite a few readers.

The study uses the following criteria to determine if a black man is worthy of having a mate:
1) He is heterosexual
2) Is interested in black women
3) Has a high school diploma
4) Earns over $30,000 per year
5) Is not obese
6) Does not have kids with another woman Read more of this post

With Nina B: Autumn Means New Beginnings – It’s Detox Time!
Happy Autumn Equinox everyone!
This is my favorite time of the year for so many reasons. The weather is invigorating and the air crisp and fresh , the colorful fallen leaves make for beautiful scenery, and most importantly for me, fall represents change and novelty; out with the old in with the new. With that being said, autumn is one of the most ideal times to detoxify, cleanse, and rebuild your body (the other being Spring). Read more of this post
