Black women took to Twitter this week after Rep. Maxine Waters was mocked by Bill O’Reilly on Fox News Tuesday morning.

When I logged into Twitter and saw the #BlackWomenAtWork hashtag trending, I was almost scared to click through. But, I’m glad I did. The sheer amount of activity on the hashtag was astonishing. The experiences people shared were true…and sad. As a black woman who has worked in corporate america, I could relate to many of the experiences being shared. Reading through the tweets was like a slap in the face of the racial reality that is ever-prevalent in our society. We’ve come a long way, but we have a long way yet to go. If you haven’t read the tweets, click the hashtag above to read it now. Did you share your experience this week on Twitter?

It’s fitting that one rap superstar will induct a fellow rap legend. It should be a great performance. It’s been almost 21 years since Tupac’s death. I think this is a well-deserved honor for Tupac and Snoop Dogg as the person who will induct him. How do you feel about the upcoming induction of Tupac into the Hall of Fame?
3…Tyra Banks returns to ‘America’s Next Top Model’ and removes age limit | E! News
Rita Ora tried it [hosting ANTM], but Tyra Banks will resume hosting duties for the 24th cycle of the how. This should interesting. Let’s not forget what happened when American Idol raised the age limit…we got the “Pants on the Ground” guy. First, Tyra decides to do a season with male models and now she’s removing the age limit.

4…The Honest Company is now selling MLB team-logo diapers | Adweek
Okay, so, this may be a tad bit much. I understand the licensing interest and lucrative potential of MLB diapers. However, is this necessary? The one upside (outside of the profits) is the probability of attracting the dads shopping the diaper aisle. This could be a very memorable “dad moment” – have your favorite baseball team logo on your little one’s diaper. What do you think? Would you buy MLB team logo diapers?
5…TLC is bringing back Trading Spaces | E! News
I loved this show! I still remember my favorite makeovers. I continue to follow the designers on social media. I. 👏🏾 AM. 👏🏾 HERE. 👏🏾 FOR. 👏🏾 THIS. I can’t wait for this to return. I hope a few of the original designers also return. That would be fantastic. Will you watch the new “Trading Spaces” on TLC?
