A Dr. Goddess Giveaway with Sears and Kenmore!
Folks, I have a ton of brand loyalty to Sears and Kenmore because I grew up with their great appliances and credit the intelligent choices my Mom aka “Ms. Freedom” made for our family. As you may know, I’ll be debuting my next play entitled, “She Put a Hammer in My Hand, a story about women and home improvement,” which is a tribute to her and a tool kit for all of us. Thus, I’m delighted to be flying on over to Chicago for the Kenmore Bloggers Summit and there’s a great opportunity for you to win some great prizes, particularly a Sears Gift Card of $100, $50 and $25. *SQUEAL*

Waaay before Lethal Weapon, 48 Hours or Huckleberry Finn, Santa Claus was working the interracial buddy theme.

Europeans, however, have a novel element to their Christmas mythology: a black sidekick.

Once upon a time, yet another international magazine decided to print racist / white supremacist words and imagery regarding a Black artist and then issue an “oops, did we do that?” apology, as if that would be enough to make protestors go away. It didn’t and it won’t. Between @theybf @thefashionbomb @luvvieig @drgoddess and @rihanna, we are not having it!

I was at one end of the Proctor & Gamble booth in the Expo Hall when I heard someone say that “the dirt” from the Swiffer commercials was around the corner. I raced over to find the actor, dressed in his hideously wonderful and creative, “Keyboard Guy” dust costume, posing with happy consumers.
