I appreciate you all! And please share this with your networks and circles of friends! Thanks again!












Reading is my favorite sport


There are a number of aspects of my life that you will read about in upcoming books.  My first book will be based on this blog.

Ever wonder why men don't call when they say they will?  Question his closeness with a certain woman he calls his "friend".  Want to know what men are really feeling, but never discuss?  That's what you'll get from this book.

I'll reveal the actual title before it is published.  My desire is to complete the book by January 14, 2011...

Pray with me that it is to be...

A Sense of Safety (Guest Post)

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. Many young adult DV relationships begin during the teen years. When involved in a DV relationship, a person's safety is very often in peril. Nora Hood guest blogs for YBBG in this post.
A Sense of Safety: Protection or Survivors of Domestic Violence.
Approximately 20,000 calls are made to the National Census of Domestic Violence Services every day. It’s a fact of life for domestic violence survivors who live in fear that a former partner will show up without warning, seeking revenge. Unfortunately, the vast majority of victims haven’t prepared a plan of action, or had security or monitoring devices installed. Protection is a major concern in light of the fact that three women are killed by a partner every day. Providing for your safety and that of your children can seem an overwhelming objective for domestic violence victims who are just trying to get away from destructive relationships and get on with their lives. Many assume that…

Wanetta Gibson's video confession

Wanetta Gibson was a sophomore, when she met up with Brian Banks, a junior star linebacker, in a stairwell at Long Beach Polytechnic High. They stood in the stairwell making out, and then went their separate ways. That make out session led to an accusation of rape.

Watch the video to see Brian tell what happened to him after their make out session. Then you will see the undercover video of Wanetta, ten years later, saying a rape never occurred.



Wanetta Gibson reached out to Banks on Facebook, of all places, wanting to "let bygones be bygones".  He set up a meeting with her to be secretly recorded, confessing that a rape never happened.  She met him, but refused to go to court, and didn't even give him the courtesy of an apology.

We now know that Brian went to prison off of, what I consider, poor legal advice.  His attorney allegedly told him he would be perceived negatively because he was a big black guy, so he may as well plead no contest.  At 16, he asked if he could …

Guy Secrets: He treats his friends better than you

I know, the title of this blog post may have caused a screw face with some of you. However...many women often complain about how much time their men spends with friends.
There's a reason for that... If your man spends more time away from you and with his friends... It's because he likes them and feels obligated to you.
That may seem a little crazy, but someone really can love you, but not like you very much. If your relationship is more like a chore than a good time...trust me, your dude will always look for an escape. He will take on more hours at his real job, join an extra rec league, hand out with his boys more, etc.
There is a cure for that, though... If you and your boo have a genuine friendship...enjoy similar activities, can talk and joke with each other, really find joy in each other's personalities...he will actually want to spend time with you.
More than that, when a dude considers you a friend, he feels more free and less tied down. Honestly, dudes secretly de…
