Tynee Talks: Breaking the Stigma of Depression and Anxiety (Mental Health Check)

The month of May is Mental Health Awareness Month! If you have not had your mental health check- up, now is the time to do so! Just like we treat the common cold, we need to be just as adamant about treating our mental health.

LaTashia Perry is a modern day renaissance woman. Some may even refer to her as a Virtuous woman. She is a wife, mother of 5, children's book author, Lactation Coach, hair stylist, fashion stylist, and entrepreneur. I'm not sure if she's actually Diana Prince, moonlighting as LaTashia, but it's safe to say that this woman is definitely a WONDER. Mrs. Perry is strong enough to bear the children and get back to business. 

Listen to my latest Tynee talks Podcast interview with LaTashia as she talks about what prompted her to write a children's book series centered on the likeness of African-American children, her adventures raising five kids ranging from ages 20 months to 15 years old, and balancing a business, all while finding alone time with her high school sweetheart husband Virgil.

Tynee Talks: Kanye West is Trippin’ and I’m Mf’n Tied

Kanye West is Trippin’ and I’m Mf’n Tied

I’m tired of loving Kanye’ like the Mother that will not stop giving her crackhead son, another second chance! I’m tired of Kanye’ West living out the lyrics to his hit song, “All Falls Down.” My guy is literally falling down the into the now famous Sunken Place, a key pop-culture phrase, that's been adopted from Jordan Peele’s critically acclaimed movie, Get Out. I’ve been rockin’ with Ye’ since 2004. That's Fourteen damn years, and now I feel like the ni%*a done betrayed me like Bernadine’s husband in Waiting to Exhale and I want to burn his shit up!
Nevertheless, the ultimate betrayal did not take place when he got on and left my ass for a white girl *insert* (Kim K). He betrayed me when he took his Black ass on National Television and said “Slavery was a choice!” This Mf’er definitely crossed the line! I have made excuse after excuse as to why Ye’ out here wildin’ and no longer can, nor will I enable carelessness for yourself at the expense of our people and culture. I will not stand for you using your voice and privilege to demean the ancestors that allow us the live the life we are afforded today;just because you are about to drop an album or want to feel accepted by those in power. Not today, tomorrow, or the next day!

You once rapped in reference to the Civil Rights Movement:
“I get down for my grandfather who took my momma
Made her sit in that seat where white folks ain't want us to eat
At the tender age of 6 she was arrested for the sit in
And with that in my blood I was born to be different…”

Mr. West you are most certainly different; and I mean that in most incredulous way! What happened to that Kanye`? Your grandfather and your mother did not risk their lives, for you to be out here actin’ a whole fool. And I do mean a whole fool! I am now just like that Mother that finally realizes she cannot let her crackhead son back in the house because he stole her bill money and took her blood pressure medicine. I now have to love you from a distance and pray that you change your ways.
