Oh, what a surprise, the Oscar nominees are White men! As they try to use awesome talent like Lupita Nyong'o as a poster child for their agenda, we should remember that the Academy Awards have never been kind to Black women.

I'm not the health-chick who can order a three-leaf salad for lunch and be too full to pack in another bite. I'm the one who reaches for the dessert menu as soon as her stretch jeans hit the cushioned seat of the booth and orders her entrée by saying, 'Whatever goes with the 'Death by Chocolate'.'

I was taken back to childhood days of dancing and singing along to the radio with my older sister, Danielle. There is -- and always will be -- something magical about sharing the dance floor with the person who has been able to finish your sentences.

Take some time to thank the women in your life who are supportive and who believe in you. And remember, it's not just about surrounding yourself with lots of women. It's about having a sisterhood.

I cannot deal with how women are using social media to bring each other down. Why does everything have to become a thing, an issue, a point of contention? Why is it that the second someone puts "mother" in their title, they become free game for attacks from the crowd?
