‘Is it ever OK being content as the side chick?’ Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


You know that woman who does absolutely nothing for the project, but still receives a good grade for all of the hard work the other person puts in? Yeah well That’s a side chick. Reaping the benefits of a relationship without actually putting in the work for it. And that’s why side chicks are becoming such a big deal. This generation of women would much rather take the easy route out, instead of settling down and sticking it out in a functional, serious relationship.

Some may argue that being a side chick isn’t a very attractive option, and that women take the back seat to the main woman in a man’s life. But in this case, it’s all about perspective. While some may see it as coming second, some women see it as coming first without ever having to run the race. Some women feel as if they’ve already paid the price of being in the “main woman” seat for many years, therefore content with having the new “side chick” status.

Nine times out of 10, the side chick knows of the man’s current relationship status. And more often than not, she is the shoulder to cry on, the therapist he confides in when he is having relationship issues. One of the most appealing aspects of being a side chick is not having to worry about the arguments. Since the man often comes to the side chick to complain about the issues he’s having in his main relationship, the side chick generally experiences the “good side.”

Why Are More Women Choosing to Marry Themselves? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


It’s a celebration of being single and thoroughly enjoying it, therefore many women are jumping on the “I me wed” and choosing to marry themselves? Women are tiried of listening to or even believing whatever society’s messages are about being happily married. Women no longer believe they are not enough if they are not with someone else.

The notion of marrying oneself entered popular consciousness in the 2003 episode of Sex and the City in which Carrie Bradshaw, its protagonist, announced she was fed up with forking out money to celebrate her friends’ life choices, but never her own.

Join Author, Blogger and Host, Tracy L. Bell at 6:30 p.m EST on the next “Conversations Of A Sistah” for her commentary on “Why are more women choosing to marry themselves?”

Hope we’ll meet you on the air!!

“Racism and this 2016 Election” Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


untitledFears of heightened bigotry and hate crimes have turned into reality for some Americans after Donald Trump’s presidential win on Tuesday November 8th. And the list of incidents keeps growing.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, they’ve counted more than 300 cases of hateful harassment or intimidation in the U.S. since Election Day. “They’ve been everywhere — in schools, in places of business, in stores like Walmart and on the street,” SPLC President Richard Cohen said Monday.

While Trump has been accused of fostering xenophobia, hate, racism and Islamophobia, some people have used his words as justification to carry out hateful crimes. In recent days we have witnessed ugly episodes of racist or anti-Semitic pro-Trump graffiti along with threats or attacks against Muslims.

Polygamy in 2016….Ladies Would you share your husband?


polygamy_1490320cPolygamy and Bigamy is illegal in the U.S., yet some people are practicing this way of living as if it is the new norm. Essentially they are the same in the aspect of having more than one wife/spouse.

Over the last few years there have been a number of television shows regarding the polygamist lifestyle. This has led some to wonder whether polygamy may be legal anywhere in the U.S. It also raises questions about why bigamy is outlawed and whether this is a trend that may be changing.

Is polygamy the next fight in marriage equality?

Currently, every state has a law outlawing polygamy. Additionally, the federal government has several laws that also criminalize the act of being married to more than one person. Enforcement of these laws is relatively difficult given the often secretive nature of many polygamists and the fact that most will have only one marriage on paper.

The question of polygamy is an interesting one in that most people today view polygamy as immoral while the Bible nowhere explicitly condemns it. Several prominent men in the Old Testament were polygamists. Abraham, Jacob, David, Solomon, and others all had multiple wives.

Tune in tonight at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” on blog talk radio as I tackle the subject “Polygamy in 2016” with my special guest Azad Chaiwala (pictured left), a polygamist of polygamy.com and Bishop Andre’ C. Alston (pictured right), Pastor of Antioch Christian Tabernacle. I’m sure there will be opposing views from my special guest. What do you think?
