Ask Dangerous Lee: Do you believe that Blue Ivy is Beyonce and Jay-Z’s biological child?


Q: Do you believe that Blue Ivy is Beyonce and Jay-Z’s biological child?

Erica S.

Brooklyn, NY

A: My short answer is…YES, of course! My long opinion is this: Anyone who believes that Beyonce had a surrogate to carry her child and that Blue Ivy is not Beyonce and Jay-Z’s biological child is ignorant as hell! An image of Beyonce in a swim suit while she was pregnant was featured at DangerousLee.Biz and you can clearly see her exposed baby bump. Also, when looking at images of Blue Ivy I see the face of Solange’s son, Juelz.

Blue Ivy is a healthy dose of both of her biological parents, Beyonce and Jay-Z. Yes, she is light skinned (I mention this because ignorant people use her skin tone to prove their theory) but so is Beyonce, and ummm Jay-Z is not the darkest crayon in the box. I also believe that Jay-Z has family from the Islands, so like Beyonce he also has a mixed heritage…as most of us in America do!

I am sick and tired of people with the belief that Black people have to literally be black as tar to be Black. Wake up! Start by reading my three part article The Half Series: When Black People Look White. It was written two years ago, but continues to be relevant and unfortunately I believe it always will be.

Until next time, Keep it Dangerous!

What do you love most about being a woman?

I love that I have the freedom to wear whatever I want; one day pants, the next day a dress. In the same vein I like the fact that I can battle it out in the boardroom and still have my chair pulled out for me.

Have you had to deal with much sexism in your industry?

In my industry being a woman can actually work in my favor.  Many of my clients are men. The world they walk in is full of locker room bravado. It is hard for them to be honest with their male counterparts about their fears and anxieties. Having a female coach in their back pocket gives them an outlet to express themselves without feeling judged. I can also give them a female’s perspective when needed.

Do you belong to any organizations catered to women business owners?

Who or what inspires you most?

I am inspired the most by my 10 nieces and nephews.  They keep me current and remind me of all the fun parts of life. They also have a way of getting me to do things I might otherwise be afraid to do.

I must add that I am also inspired by nature. The simplest gestures like a bird’s morning song or the annual blooming of a flower never cease to amaze me.  Witnessing nature’s perfection makes me want to be a better human being.

Something about you that would surprise us:

By choice, I have never been married and I don’t have any children.

Advice for women entrepreneurs:

Don’t forget that men were built to provide and problem solve. It’s in their DNA. So let them.  I believe to be successful in business as women we need to have some good men on our team or at least advocating for us.  Sometimes I feel that women believe that winning in business means beating the men. Not true. To win in business means surrounding yourself with the best people, male and female who can help you achieve your goal.

Movie Review: Contagion

I enjoyed this film because I was also creeped out by it. If you’ve managed to avoid getting sick with the stomach flu this winter cold season, consider yourself lucky. I am among the thousands if not millions of people who have survived the stomach flu virus in the past few months. Try to imagine that the stomach flu is what is killing people in this film as you watch it; we’d all be dead!

That’s a sobering reality when you consider that viruses are getting stronger and we get weaker. Contagion could very well be a prediction as to what is supposed to destroy humankind this year. Oh yea, did you forget that December 21, 2012 is the end of the world according to those that believe the theory and they have forced many of us to believe it as well…but not me, I’m too Dangerous and too damn smart to believe that the end of the world can be predicted.

Anyway, this film gives you the cause and effect of a super virus that kills an asinine amount of people . Wash your hands before watching!
