A BnB Milestone: Five Hundred Posts!

As with most milestones here on BnB, I blew right past this one. Wouldn't you know out of all the intelligent, insightful stuff I've written (just agree with me) that crazy post on the Usher Wedding was number 500?! 

For the newbies, here was my first post ever. This was my Bougie Manifesto post. And this epic rant one was the most popular as far as readers, comments, links and re-posting. It was posted on Essence.com and fourteen other sites. For some reason my three in the morning rants are always the most popular. Anyway, thanks for visiting the Black 'n Bougie blog. Do I have 500 more in me? Whew! We'll have to see...

I hope so, because I can not live without your daily posts and rants. Please keep them coming.

Congratulations girl. I truly enjoyed my repeat reading of the linked posts. Like many others, I start my day with BnB and wonder as the day's news hits the wire and air waves: "is Chele going to comment on this crap?" Then I start wondering what some of your regular commenters are thinking (yes, even Riley!). Love my BnB community!

I see you, Chele. I see you.

Congratulations Chele. 500 anything is nothing to sneeze at. One thing though. Since so many milestones these days are tainted by the use of performance enhancing drugs (PED's) we are going to need you to take this cup into that room to your right and provide the appropriate sample...LOL

LOL - duly noted.

Ms. C, if you're commenting you are still alive. You could call a sister. Mwah!

OneChele said...

Happy 500, Chele! I rarely post a comment, but I ALWAYS read your blog.

Um...I don't think I had a chance to throw my hat in the ring on your "epic rant," so indulge me for a few...please??

Okay, you were on point like acupuncture on your "epic rant." The reason we've seen such an uptick in the media about Black male-female relationships because America has a new Black relationship target: the Obamas. IMHO, the reality of having an intact, healthy and loving relationship between two Black folk is so absurd to the MSM until they want to do any and every thing to prove that those types of relationships do not exist...and will never exist. Oh, the Black media is in on the conspiracy, too. (We see you, Essence, Ebony, Sister2Sister, and Jet. Don't think we don't.) There's a mission to proliferate stereotypes (no matter how ridiculous) about Black women being so career focused and smart until their no marital good, and the only available Black men being grimy and not on their marital grind. It's supposed to pit us against each other to the point where we don't see that (a) we need each other for basic survival; (b) we can have healthy, long lasting relationships (i.e. marriages); (c) we need each other for basic survival. (Sorry, I had to repeat that twice.) At any rate, you brought it home and bagged it up. Keep up the bouge work.
