Moxie Sophic’s latest entry “Darkie Negro Pity Party” gives much food for thought. While reading this post, many thoughts simultaneously run though my mind. These will be posed as probing questions:
►► When it comes to abuse, I am deeply uncomfortable with remaining silent. Does silence equate to giving up? Is there more than one way to take a stand?
►► On second thought, the “Keeping It Real Trickbag” has left many vulnerable for further exploitation -in personal settings and collectively. How can we not give the appearance of condoning certain behaviors without ‘laying it all on the line’?
FABRIZIO GRASSO & PANDHORA WILLIAMS Brought to us by New York Magazine’s “Look Book”
Pandhora made a conscious decision to live well and seek a higher quality of life. I’ve noticed slow but steady paradigm shift in Black women. Many (but still not enough) are seeking happiness and a better quality of life ON THEIR OWN TERMS. Once identified, rejecting dysfunctional programming is a first step…Accepting lost call for what they are, yet another.
I want our new readers to ask themselves honestly:
►► How would the “Black Community Machine” majority treat Pandhora?

Cher is a pro-marriage, progress driven blogger whose unique perspectives motivate her readers towards attaining their personal goals. She maintains the position that Black women MUST consider men from all racial/ethnic backgrounds to realize increased potential for love. Cher's forum will ask the hard questions, challenging mindsets and herd mentalities which frequently overtake common sense. "Black Women Deserve Better" is results-oriented and otherwise incompatible with a "read-only" audience. Intact families, safe environments, love, increased knowledge & living well are top priority. Pointless conversation loops, circular logic and debates opposing these core principles are not welcomed. This site accommodates resources which complements our mission and interests. The main objective of Cher's platform is fostering relationships with reciprocal parties who support, uplift and positively interact with Black women.
