Bill Cosby Daughter Evin Speaks Out.
(ThyBlackMan.com) I am the youngest of five. I remember our family trips and moving to NYC just so we could be closer to my father as he worked. From the time he worked in Las Vegas to the Cosby show in NYC, he always wanted us to be close, to be a part of his whole life, at home and on stage.

Donald Trump, Worst Presidential 100 Days Ever.
(ThyBlackMan.com) #45 Trump got one thing right about the media hyped first 100 days measuring stick of a new president. It’s a silly measure. In fact, presidents from John F.
