#1. Black Conservatives On Obama

How to you receive a guy who is the culmination of your dreams but holds on to the politics of your nightmares? Do you vote with your heart or your head? This was the question I posed during the heat of the 2008 election, wondering which black conservatives would vote for history and which would hold fast to their views and vote party.

#7. Doomed Romance Is Gonna Get You

He’s like a novel that I’d love to read over and over again. He’s amazingly complex in all the ways I like. He’s intelligent, spiritual, independent, strong sense of self, mature, logical … most of the time, physically strong, nice teeth, beautiful hair, dark skin and patient. He loves animals. He loves his people – in a love/hate sort of way. He’s honorable in a way that most men are not honorable anymore.

But is he what I want?

#9. Michelle Obama Still Dresses Better Than You

Still a top post whenever someone keys in the search terms “Michelle Obama and Fashion” and next to TJ Holmes, she’s the number one reason many people originally stumbled upon my site. Early on when no one was writing about Michelle’s clothes online, The Snob was and with aplomb.
