Colorism: Ledisi The Ignored Chocolate Beauty In The Industry!***messymandella***


I have always wondered about colorism. I  am short, light skin, and a weave queen. Some women would describe that as “fake.”

I tell them get your hair out that pigtail holder,get an upgrade. I also know that people who wear natural hair at times thinks that brings them closer to the “Motherland.” I’m here to tell you, that you can ignorant about your culture,no matter what you think. Hair does not advertise  your intelligence.

 She has dark skin, big lips, and big eyes. She is Beautiful. Women are the worst critics of other women. Oh honey, I know.

Ledisi, admitted in an interview that she never thought she was ugly until she became a Neo Soul Powerhouse. In her book she discusses her looks and her definition of beauty. Here is an excerpt:LEDISI


 “In the book, there’s a chapter called ‘Beauty’: I talk about how I tell myself ‘I’m beautiful’ everyday because the world says something different. I didn’t know I was considered ‘ugly’ to someone until they said it, because all of my life I’d been told I was beautiful, especially by my mother in particular, so when I got out there in the world, I heard differently.

There are also other versions of beauty out there and I talk about those, saying that the woman we typically would consider ‘beautiful’ may look that way on the outside to the rest of the world, but on the inside, she may be ‘broken.’ There are so many things in other chapters that I talk about: ‘Love.’ ‘Forgiveness.’ ‘Faith.’ ‘Exiting Stage Left,’ all of these different aspects that we can learn from. Men may enjoy some parts of “…..Alright,” since there are men that I celebrate—there’s a quote from President Obama inside that speaks to learning from your failures, for example—but it’s especially for women because I am a woman and that’s all I can really  talk about (laughs). The book has a lot of great stuff inside that I’m proud of: photographs that I’ve never shown, pictures of family members that I don’t really talk about (publicly) and those are the people who really helped me to get to where I am.”

You Are Beautiful!

Doesn’t matter what anyone ignorant self- hating undividual tells you. Women of all nationalities and complexions are beautiful. Your skin and your voice outweigh the negativity and all assumptions of certain characteristics that define beauty. Your lips and your gorgeous chocolate skin is a gift not a curse. We have to abandon insecurities within our culture and destroy Colorism. We can’t be united if little girls my complexion think they are prettier. We can’t be united if we have an insecurity if our men date someone of another race. My mom has a dark complexion with my features, my father is of a lighter complexion. My cheekbones come from the Native American ancestors and my skin is lighter because of the German  and black slaves  in my family, that were of lighter skin. People would be rude to ask my mom if I was really her daughter?  It would break my mom’s heart that someone would be that intrusive and ignorant. They judged my mom by her skin but not her features it was embaressing and also disgusting to even question her about her baby girl? We have to inspire unity and abandon insecurity and slave designed hatred that divides black women, still today. Ledisi, Beyonce, Lupita, Nia Long, Rashida Jones are beautiful women of color that  little black girls should notice, these women are successful, admirable women with   different complexions, but are still undeniably beautiful. We can’t let our babies assume they are ugly or not as pretty as the girl in their class with a lighter complexion. End Colorism!

Speak Up Against Domestic Abuse!***messymandella***NSFW – We Love You Michel’le

“Why would he do it?”
“Did I deserve it?”
“Can it really change?”
“Maybe, I should stop bothering him?”
“I am stressing him out, I should have let him talk.”
“She only hits me when I interrupt her.”
“I can’t hit her back, no matter what.”
“She embarrassed me, so I punched her.”

After spending the night with a friend at the age of 14 and watching her dad beat up her mom, throw her in an ant bed, kick her in the face, bloody her nose,  threaten to kill himself If we called the cops, I have NO TOLERANCE! She kept apologizing to me, and she was the victim!

Children’s lives change once they witness domestic abuse.

Thanks Gotti, for telling this story.

This illustrates the story of the child watching this injustice.


13 Years Later… Did officer steve calkins murder terrance williams and Felipe Santos?***messymandella***

          121 January 11,2003,  Terrance  Williams  wanted to go out, but  did have legal cause to drive his vehicle. Terrance calls roommate because he  is scared to drive home,too many cops. Terrance  does not come home that night. His roommate assumes he was with a woman. Next monday, Terrance roommates calls random phone numbers in phone.People who were at the party, knew he left around 6 am. 24 hours later, Terrance’s roommate sends email to Terrance’s mom worried. Wednesday, he is missing for 48 hours. Of course, they are starting to panicked. 27-year-old Terrance williams  was never seen again. None of his friends  are able to contact him. Terrance had a couple of DUIs, and could not register his White Cadillac in Florida. He  depended on his mom and friends to get him back and forth for work. He would  sneak  and drive his vehicle out of desperation. However, driving illegal should never lead to a  disappearance. Once the friends and family  could not find him  in Naples, Florida they contacted relatives in his home state of Tennessee.

            They called the local  sheriff  (deputy Steve Calkins) who signed the towing receipt. Oddly, the deputy never reported towing the vehicle  his Police Department. Steve Calkins is a seasoned police officer. He knew proper procedures that he was expected to follow, as a an officer. He denied “remembering” towing the car. The craziest part is Calkins  has been a law enforcer  for over 17 years. Steve Calkins is full of shit. There is no way in hell that a police officer could not remember towing a white Cadillac, 4 days before.

         Marcia Williams wants justice for her son. No one has seen Terrance Williams, since January 11, 2003. Steve Calkins , has done this  before. Felipe Santos has also vanished. The last person to see Felipe Santos was of course, Steve Calkins. Felipe disappeared 3 months before Terrance Williams. This is outrageous and not a damn  coincidence. Steve Calkins, needs to receive his punishment. Felipe Santos and Terrance Willams were never seen after meeting Deputy Steve Calkins. I wonder how many others have suffered the same fate?

           This is story needs wings. 4 children, deserve to put their daddy to rest. Terrance loved his family and paid child support on all 4 of his children. Terrance  and Felipe families need closure. Tyler Perry is offering  $100,000 for any information that leads to recovering  Terrance and Felipe.

              I forget to mention, Steve Calkins was recorded calling the vehicle in the video towed, he called in a “Signal 11” which means abandoned vehicle. You can’t have an abandoned vehicle if you spoke to the driver of the vehicle.Terrance Williams is clearly heard speaking to Calkins in a recording, from his Cop Car. Yes, he is   recorded on the phone talking to  Steve Calkins, and he also said that he was joking when he said it was “abandoned” and a “homie ” vehicle.There is nothing funny about this situation. Steve Calkins has been fired, because of  polygraph and conflicting stories. Just think this happened after Civil Rights Movement and  Jim Crow. This should not have in our decade. The lack of coverage for this case, is sickening and disgusting. I wish their  live were deemed newsworthy…



They ALWAYS covering up for their fellow officers . The town next to us Jennings,La were 8women killed and EVERYONE KNOWS that it was a cop because of the cleaning of CLOROX and a 1 WOMAN was found in a Police’s Field and no one has been prosecuted we’ve had BIG SHOWS COME TO JENNINGS and FBI as well and only thing the public is hearing is that it’s an inside job that’s being covered so we just need to pray for justice for ALL THE FAMILIES INVOLVED

I usually side with the police, but this Deputy has no business being a cop. No one who uses racial slurs, or changes their story so many times can be in such a power position. I truely believe that the deputy did have some thing to do with both disappearances. I hate to think it is possible, but I bet there are more than just 2 missing persons in this deputy’s background. He should be strung up. I feel he is guilty on all aspects. Please bring justice to the families and to the victims themselves, should anyone out there know anything at all. God bless the families.

You’re a lying murderer Calkins. You will be punished.
