It’s Complicated; but then again it’s NOT!

It’s Complicated; but then again it’s NOT! By JV Howard

There is undoubtedly a generational gap between the past generation (our parents or Silent generation) and the next generation (our kids or millennials) with us (baby boomers) – my peers and I – representing the bridge gap. The gap represent something of a grey area between when the baby Boomer generation created the internet and when the millennials created SixDegrees.com, which is said to be the first ever social media website.

The bridge gap - defined as a difference or disparity in attitudes, perceptions, character, or development, - is indispensable given the last generation custom to being hands on, face to face, along with human embrace. In contrast the next generation is accustomed to being hands off, on FaceTime or Facebook, and embracing virtual acceptance.

As we acknowledge the empirical evidence involving generational differences the onerous falls on us to balance our children – millennials - barometer for human relations. 
Human relations begins with family and our parents were the gold standard - in most cases - of backbone and character; in the black community things were hard, scarce, and in many cases difficult.

A Crisis In America; How Did We Get Here?

By JV Howard

African-Americans live, to a certain degree, in a constant crisis management mode 
and have been for some time. Crisis defined; a condition of instability or danger, as in social, economic, political, or international affairs, leading to a decisive change...
It produces a dramatic emotional or circumstantial upheaval in personal life. But how did we get here?

In answering the question how did we get here - in a crisis mode - take a look at 
present day realities that point to social, economic, health, and political quandaries 
that have severely watered down the promise of this countries democratic process. 
The promise of inclusion has morphed into a promise of preference and privilege; the 
preference to ignore the basic human rights and dignity of all it's citizens and the privilege of immunity and exemption.

A quick inventory of current events highlight headlines that reads ‘Worst Week in 
America’ as a major social crisis with guns and mass killings continue unabated, a economic crisis governed by late night tweets, a self inflicted opioid health crisis, and a political crisis where leadership is more bot than human. A bot is a device or piece of software that can execute commands, reply to tweets, or perform routine tasks like order from McDonalds.

MEET THE FOUNDER OF THE NEWEST BLACK-OWNED BEAUTY SUPPLY COMPANY THAT IS REDEFINING INDUSTRY STANDARDS

Arlington, TX --  BPolished Beauty Supply, an Arlington, Texas-based beauty supplies platform and brick-and-mortar-shop that covers everything from conditioner and shampoo to protective style items such as wigs, crochet hair, and hair braids, continues to redefine industry standards as a leading Black-owned business today.

Despite the adversity and lack of Black female representation in the beauty industry, Frankesha Watkins, founder and owner of the company, is determined to demonstrate what is possible with hard work, commitment to diversity, and savvy business acumen.

"Black women are the largest consumer of beauty products and dominate the industry in regards to dollars being spent. However, we have the least amount of ownership.

In addition for years the market has been flooded with products that have not been suitable for women of color," says Frankesha. "We deserve to have ownership in this industry and access to that same quality of beauty products, which is why I am so excited to be offering the best products right through my new beauty supply store and accompanying platform."
