Jessica Williams speaks with Sgt. Jasmine Jacobs about Army regulation AR 670-1

Jessica Williams and Travon (one of the staff writers) do it again!

Yeah. This is the problem. And it’s not just a problem in the army - school dress codes also often discriminate against natural African hair. This is racism, specifically it’s an aspect of the kind of racism that says that African hair is inferior to Caucasian hair - as opposed to simply being different.

It’s complete and utter bullshit. I’m glad they’re spotlighting this.

What everyone needs to know is that this IS NOT NEW. I remember being in orientation for my job at the DoD in 2009 and talking to a black female Air Force (I think) member. She said it was an open secret that no black woman with natural hair would ever be promoted.

So at least women have something to fight back against now. Before, it was just understood, so you knew you weren’t getting promoted because of your hair, but nobody actually came out and said that.

Either way, it’s fucking sickening.

Years ago, when I first started blogging about writing and my hopes of one day getting published, I ran my first book giveaway to celebrate my birthday. Now, July 5th is the day I set aside to thank you guys for reading my books, for listening to me ramble on Twitter and Tumblr, and for just generally being awesome, book-loving, YA-reading rockstars. You guys are the best birthday present a girl could ask for.

To celebrate I’m giving away ALL of my books, including an early ARC of This Shattered World, plus swag, across five different winners, open internationally*. I’ll be drawing one of the four basic prize winners each Saturday leading up to the final grand prize drawing from the entire pool of entrants on July 31. The first drawing is TONIGHT, so jump on it sooner rather than later!

FOUR BASIC PRIZES: Your choice of any one of the above books signed and personalized, plus signed swag. (ARC of This Shattered World, poster, and custom These Broken Stars necklace are only available for the grand prize.)

ONE GRAND PRIZE: EVERYTHING pictured above! All signed/personalized however you want them. 

HOW TO ENTER:

  • Newsletter (+5): Enter by subscribing to the newsletter I share with amiekaufman. Each entry here is worth five points in the drawings. (If you already subscribe, you’ve already automatically got these points in the drawing!)
  • Twitter (+1): Retweet this tweet. (Can do this once a day for more points!)
  • Tumblr (+1): Reblog this post. (Can do this once a day for more points!) 

See below for contest fine print and basic contest policy/rules.

With or without the chocolate-covered almonds, this was bangin’.

Chocolate Almond Crunch Ice Cream

Ingredients

(for the ice cream batter)
2 cups soy creamer, plain or vanilla
1 cup almond or soy milk, plain or vanilla, divided
2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract

(for the chocolate almonds)

3/4 cup almonds, toasted
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1 teaspoon coconut oil

Directions

1. In a small mug, combine 1/4 cup of the soy milk with the arrowroot powder. Whisk well and set aside.

2. In a medium saucepan, combine the soy creamer, remaining soy milk, and sugar; mix well. Heat on medium-high, whisking constantly, until the mixture begins to boil. Remove from heat and add the arrowroot slurry immediately, whisking well. This should cause the milk to thicken noticeably. Add the vanilla and almond extract and whisk well.

3. Cover and transfer to a fridge to chill for six to eight hours or, better yet, overnight.

4. Next, make the chocolate almonds! In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the chocolate chips for one minute. Stir and continue to microwave in thirty-second increment, stirring each time, until the chocolate is fully melted. Stir in the toasted almonds, mixing to coat. Spread the mixture out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (as thinly as possible, so it’s easier to break up) and place the whole cookie sheet in the fridge. After an hour, remove the cookie sheet and break the chocolate-covered almonds into bite-sized pieces. If this is too difficult to do by hand, break them into larger squares; place these in a food processor and pulse once or twice, until broken into smaller pieces. Transfer the candy to a covered container and refrigerate (or freeze) until use.

5. To make the ice cream, process the batter according to your ice cream machine’s directions. Add the chocolate covered almonds as you transfer the finished ice cream to a storage container, mixing them in gently (but thoroughly) by hand. I wouldn’t recommend adding the almonds mid-cycle, as these could clog up your machine. (Been there, done that!)

6. Enjoy immediately or pop it in the freezer for a firmer dessert!

[Nichelle Nichols’] record of accomplishment speaks for itself: NASA originally had 1500 applicants from women and minorities on file. Women in Motion helped spur that number to exceed 8000 in six months. Nichols received the American Society of Aerospace Education’s Friend of the Year award for ‘outstanding contributions to the promotion of aviation and space.
