What the hell is going on with young, black America?  Let me specify. RICH, young black America. Y’all have been on one lately. Listen babies…we have rules and shit. You can’t just go giving opinions without consulting with your elders first!  I, really, try to discuss relevant issues that concern us but this needs to be addressed.

Something's gotta give

Career-wise, I don't know what I want to be when I grow up. (I think we've talked about that before.) Once I dropped ballerina and astronaut off my potential job list, life got a little less interesting. But, I've always known that I wanted to be a mom.
