Today has been a little hectic around these parts, Clutchettes, but still we rise. Although we are man-down for the day (say a few prayers for our team, pretty please?), we still managed to cover things we hope were entertaining, inspirational, and educational. But as I mentioned last week, we can’t cover it all…so here’s a roundup of what we didn’t talk about today, but thought you should totally check out.

Shall we?

Black Women’s Transition to Natural Hair – Still considering “the big chop”? Watch one woman as she undergoes the very emotional journey of getting back to her roots. It’s a must-see. Oh, and shout out to Clutchette Amy for reminding us to link to the video! {The New York Times}

South African Bill Evokes Apartheid Era – This is not good at all. Is South Africa moving backward? Let’s hope not. {The Root}

We’re All So Busy Texting That We Forgot How to Talk to Each Other – Remember when you spent hours on the phone talking to those you love (and seriously crushed on)? Yeah, me neither. But I want a little of that old thing back. {Jezebel}

BOUGIE LETTUCE, OR WHY I STOPPED TRYING TO CHANGE MY FAMILY’S DIET – Have you ever tried to help your family eat better only to have them tell you to take your bougie mitts off their pork chops? Veronica-Marche Miller breaks it down. {XO Jane}

Is Donald Trump Using Arsenio Hall As His Token Negro? – Hmmm….I’m going to pick “Yes” for $500. {NewsOne}

The Kardashian Family Do Notorious B.I.G’s “Hypnotize” In Dominican Republic! – Ummm….WTF? {Youtube}

Lauryn Hill DENIES Being Nicki Minaj’s Summer Jam “Special Guest”, Hits The Stage With Nas – Nicki, who? {the YBF}

Bonus: Nas & Lauryn Hill perform. L-Boogie is looking mighty fine. #RealHipHop

    – I never cut my relaxed hair went I went back to being natural. It’s like, the texture just reverted back.

    – I prefer texting over talking on the phone no matter who the person is. I was never the person to spend hours on the phone.

    – Yea, I tried introducing healthier options for some of the foods we buy and it was a no go.

    – I can’t believe I was a fan of the Kardashians when they first became popular. What was I thinking?

    – Damn, Lauryn Hill sounded horrible.

      OMG @ Teiko! I thought I was the only one whose texture went back to normal after I stopped relaxing.

      Fatima – Maybe it has something to do with how tightly coiled the hair is.

    Lauryn should play Nina Simone, her voice, acting skills, looks, she is perfect.

    I’m sorry…nope, scratch that, I’m not sorry – Lauryn Hill: Please retire!
