UNBEWEAVABLE! NEW PROGRAM EMPOWERS AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN (AND MEN) FINANCIALLY IN THE $10 BILLION HAIR WEAVE INDUSTRY

-- Start your own hair business today, selling high-end hair at an affordable price --

House of Beautiful Hair Weaves

Nationwide (BlackNews.com) -- There is a new, unique and very profitable black owned company named, The House Of Beautiful Hair, that is taking control of the $10 billion dollar hair weave industry that was once closed to African Americans. The company is creating financial stability for African American women and men - from business owners, stay-at-home moms, employed workers and even high school students - who wear hair weaves and have friends who wear hair extensions.

Sales of the company's top of the line virgin remy hair has been beyond tremendous due to the independent business owners within the parent company that are moving the hair product throughout the country and earning modest to big incomes either in a part-time or full-time capacity. All of this without buying and stocking any inventory.

According to Raven L. Mahdee, an independent business owner with the company, people are earning enough money to help pay their rent/mortgages, car notes, health bills and all other bills that had been a financial strain on their family budgets.

Besides the generous incomes, African American women are strongly drawn to the business model because of the simplicity and the desire to no longer be just consumers in a market which they created, but have been 95% consumers. Until Now!

In speaking with company leaders, a conscious decision was made to make the investment of $9.97 a month to be an independent business owner. This allows people - from small to large economic means - to have a legitimate opportunity to tap hard into this multi-billion dollar industry which continues to spiral upwards.

Due to the popularity of the company, one New York based production company that produces reality shows for Bravo, Lifetime and the History channels, has contacted The House of Beautiful Hair founders about a possible series of episodes documenting the company's success.

For more information on the company, contact Raven L. Mahdee at (661) 472-9559 or go directly to www.xtasyhair.com and sign-in for a free tour of The House Of Beautiful Hair.

NYCHA nightmare continues after de Blasio's promises

 

Six months ago, Mayor de Blasio took office promising big changes for public housing, but that means little to Blanche Moore, who still has to deal with sickening black mold in her bathroom. “It’s the same,” said Moore, 61, a retired home health aide, who lives in the DeWitt Clinton Houses in East Harlem. “I don’t have a problem talking to them or anything. I just can’t get anybody to come and do the work.” Moore is one of 17 tenants who sued NYCHA in June on behalf of DeWitt Clinton’s 1,700 residents, demanding that the authority address dozens of repairs that date back years.

For Discussion: Are African-Americans Just As Guilty Of Racism As White People?

 

Race Matters

Equal opportunity?

Are Black And White People Equally Guilty Of Racism?

A columnist for The Daily Caller recently penned a brief article demoing “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg a racist for comments she made towards guess host Will Cain.

The two were apparently discussin political correctness when Whoopi responded “Spoken like a true white guy!” when Cain shared his point of view.

The columnist summed up his opinion Whoopi’s behavior with this response:

Goldberg then admits she doesn’t know Cain’s background. She doesn’t need to know his background or anything about him, because she can see the color of his skin. All people with white skin are alike, right?

Everybody has a right to be offended except for true white guys because the ancestors of a lot of true white guys did a lot of bad things. They’re not a Designated Victim Class and therefore, their opinion is meaningless.

Hmmm. Do you think black people too often get a pass to be racist against white people because of things that their ancestors did?

Let’s discuss, Bossip fam.

PUBLIC SCHOOL,,SUMMER BREAK

PUBLIC SCHOOL

SUMMER BREAK

 

 

Thursday is the last day of public school before summer vacation. That means the AM commute will ease up a bit, and that kids will be out and about. It also means parking spots will open up in "No Parking on School Days" zones. Beware, though, since sometimes schools will hold teacher trainings, conferences, or summer programs during which the No Parking on School Days rules are in effect. The only way to know for sure if you're allowed to park in that zone is to call the school and find out their schedule.
