My 4 Children Are Exceptionally Privileged

By Tasha Vanzie I know this woman and family. Very blessed in all ways including financially. They are a black family, who are homeschoolers, 13 yr old has already graduated from high school. Victimhood, crazyhood, underachieving on purposehood (because it is the 'black' thing to do) is for the birds. Black people who have yet to awaken from the deeply debilitating liberal agenda will only sink further into the underclass. Black people who believe in their own humanity and God given equality are succeeding and living joyful - regular - lives... Far away from the growing prison-like nature of underclass environments and mentalities.

That Mothering Question that Evokes Guilt

So, due to Radical Feminism, young girls are raised to believe that women are supposed to have it all but their personal freedom is absolutely their first priority. This priority should always be met. Usually this freedom is first career, work, j-o-b, independence. The reason this is important is because this is what men grow up thinking about and being trained into. Whatever men fixate on, women should as well. The object of desire is to compete with men, to rival them in life goals. Without said competition, a woman's life is meaningless, because there is nothing else; except sexual identity and freedom. Work and sex and the top 2 priorities for any self respecting Rad Fem. Women fall into various positions on the Radical Feminist spectrum, and their answers to this question ma...

In Defense of the Homemaker

Radical Feminism has infected the world and though the ideology is supposed to fight for women's freedom to choose their lifestyle and goals, that freedom never includes freedom to be a homemaker. Understand, that women and men are infected with the virus of Rad Fem ideology. You will be told that should you set the clock back 60 years, you will fall into a pit of oppressive despair, barefoot and pregnant with no resources to escape your tyrant of a husband. He will leave you for a younger, 'ambitious' woman and you will be left penniless and without skills or history in the workforce. Your mother-in-law, your friends, previous co-workers, sisters and brothers will all tell you their unsolicited opinions on your decision and some will be quite vicious in tone. Remember that ...

How Homeschooling Forces Parental Level Up

While the reason for homeschooling is as varied as the number of families homeschooling, there is one commonality amongst all of them; which is the move towards autonomous thinking and the taking on of personal responsibility for the sake of the child's education. The reason why this topic interests me so deeply is because I have been promoting the 'leveling up' process for women's personal lives for several years and its extension into family life is only fitting and a given. You may be wondering what the leveling up process is. Leveling up is the shifting and elevation of mindset away from the state of being that includes a total lack of self-care and self-love, as well as engaging in relationships and activities which are devaluing and destabilizing to overall well-being. ...

Charity Begins At Home

Our 8 year old has trouble wrapping her mind around cleaning out her room and often takes hours working on one dresser of clothing. Our 13 year old has trouble deciding how she wants to tweak the arrangement of her room and has been at a stand still in regards to moving the project to completion. Our 16 year old just needs a good ole fashion, full on, clean out demolition service and the completion of her RATHER artistic wall decor that she started months ago. I've got to finish spray painting a gold antique-style finish on the artwork frames I want to hang in our newly redesigned dining room. Hubby would like to get the tall ladder and clean the sky window and, of course, I have a couple of projects for him such as hanging a few plants from the ceiling. We'd also...

A Mother’s Responsibility To Her Children

During a bloody Father's Day weekend in Chicago, among the many dead is a 3 year old boy. He was shot dead while in a car that was being driven by his step-father; who was the actual target of the murderers. The step-father only suffered a minor grazing by the bullet and refused medical help. While the usual neighborhood admonishment takes place with a small gathering of local ministers and folks displaying public tears over the senseless violence they endure, I take a step back from my immense disgust at the entirety of this so-called 'black' experience of living in the 'hood to once again focus on the adage: 'What we allow, persists. What persists becomes the culture'. Yes, I am on the outside looking in. Yes, I have, for a short time, lived in the 'hood of Atlanta (while I was...

Consider an Introduction of Merit Based Projects for our Children

"Every persecuted individual and race should get much consolation out of the great human law, which is universal and eternal, that merit, no matter under what skin found, is in the long run recognized and rewarded...the whole future of the Negro rest(s) largely upon the question as to whether or not he should make himself, through his skill, intelligence, and character, of such undeniable value to the community in which he lived that the community could not dispense with his presence..." - Booker T. Washington Families are not solely a collection of people who happen to share the same DNA and a home is not merely a space where a collection of people eat and sleep. Within a family and home, children have an enormous opportunity to develop into sound, contributing human beings. As p...

Hurried Mom Syndrome

HURRIED WOMAN SYNDROME!!! I once lived the excerpt below... I made a firm decision that my next and last marriage would afford me the opportunity to be a present mom, a #SAHM. I would love for all women to slow down and actually experience life, #motherhood and time with their family from a less stressful and burned out perspective. P.S. I obliged my daughter with this Snapchat... she loves it! Lol Excerpt:"Ms. Hughes and millions of other women have made the choice to give up their all-consuming careers. Why? Largely because the feminist battle cry of “having it all” resulted in lots of stress over a myriad of competing demands for time, guilt for the virtual neglect of children, and longing for more home-and-hearth time. In fact, there is even a new synd...

Minnie Gaston – The Millionaire Wife, Benevolent Queen

From: Black Titan by Carol Jenkins and Elizabeth Gardner Hines (Original Caption) Birmingham, Alabama: Dr. A.G. Gaston, left, and wife, Minnie, admire diamond ring on finger of nationally-known religious leader, Reverend Frederick Eikerenkoetter, better known as Reverend Ike, evening of October 31, prior to banquet honoring Dr. Gaston as a "Living Legend."

While my uncle had begun to make his way in the world, the Gardners, a farming family from Montgomery, were considered some of the most beautiful people in Alabama. Thanks to a thoroughly shaken racial cocktail, ...
