Drop It Like It’s Hot

Hey everyone, thanks for another great week of conversation.  This week we dealt with some very difficult subjects, which of course lead to strong emotions. I would like to take the time to remind everyone that we cannot always agree, however; we should attempt to be  civil with one another. 

I would also like to remind everyone that Womanist Musings has an open guest posting policy.  If you are interested in participating, please send your original piece or a cross post to me via e-mail.  An issue was raised regarding Monica’s use of the word lame as a negative descriptor  in her guest post this week.  I have never and will never edit someone else’s work.  If there is something in the post that I disagree with, I exercise my right to put an editor’s note at the bottom. This has always been my policy and it is not subject to change no matter who the guest poster is.

Finally, below you will find links to some great posts that I came across this week.  Please show these bloggers some love and check them out.  When you are done, don’t forget to drop it like it’s hot and leave your link behind in the comment section.
