Oh remember the outcry when JK Rowling cast Black actress Noma Dumezweni as Hermione in “The Cursed Child” and she famously and accurately said “Idiots gonna idiot” when asked about the backlash against her? Well it seems to have happened again with the casting of Halle Bailey as The Little Mermaid. And it's ridiculous.

After a long time - I have entered Nappturality into the realm of a "social" site. Things change, I know. And resistance to change is useless, so I've done what I always do. Adapt and Create.

We’ve all heard it. ‘White privilege”. Panels of white people discussing how they do or do not believe it exists. Panels of Black people discussing how they do or do not think it’s important that White people do or do not think it exists. The simple definition of White privilege is the set of advantages White people in society typically experience that are not experienced by non-White people.

There was a time before Facebook. People searched for and visited websites to find other people interested in the same things. They joined up, conversed with each other, shared ideas, made friends and discussed things

I can see why we are increasingly preferring to shop online instead of visit stores. No one wants to be treated like a criminal when you are simply shopping for shoes. And shopping while Black has become hazardous to your health.

We speak with our dollars. And I will not knowingly spend my hard-earned money with a company that donates money to sexual assaulters. None of us should. When it comes to the #GrabYourWallet movement, there is always room for one more.

We all have natural hair goals, and right up there at the top of what I hear from naturals is that they want LONG HAIR. Let's talk about that because it's important. Long hair is should not be your goal because instead, maximum length should be, even though that may not be what you consider "long hair."

The best thing you can do for your natural hair is to keep it moisturized. Understanding how well your hair holds moisture and how it treats products is the key to making sure your hair stays soft and hydrated all day. We outline the best moisturizing tips for all hair textures.

Summer sunshine makes us all want to get outside and play. We are told to wear hats, sunscreen and protect our skin from UV, but what about our hair and scalp? I have a personal issue with UV, because I am a Black woman who got skin cancer.

If we are blessed with a long life, it will happen eventually. You will may allow it to show, you may not. It may come early, or it may come late. But it’s coming. So, let’s get into how to grow out beautifully and care for it.

Can I talk to you about your skin? Because it needs attention. You need to start paying attention, and now. Your skin is your first defense and your barrier against pollutions, UV, radicals and poisons. Care for it now, or regret it later.

Struggling with hair loss? Have you noticed your hair thinning, especially on the hairline? Has your hair changed texture, color or elasticity no matter what products and routine you change to? It may be your thyroid.
