Toyota Motor Credit To Pay $21.9 Million For Discriminatory Practices.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Each year observances and events offered in recognition of Black History Month offer opportunities for people of all colors and locales to reflect on the unique experiences of Blacks both past and present. Many of the annual observances chronicle progress since the passage of laws adopted years ago to ensure that Black citizens and others of color would enjoy all freedoms and benefits...

Yes, Republicans Can Get More Black Votes.
(ThyBlackMan.com) The 2012 presidential election delivered a wake-up call to the Republican Party to improve communication with minorities.
The realization that the American presidency can now be won with support of less than 40 percent of white voters — Obama won with just 39 percent — was a bombshell.
When Ronald Reagan was elected president in November 1980, 88 percent of the electorate... [Read the full story]
White America, It’s Not Always About You.
(ThyBlackMan.com) It’s Black History Month again, and this is the first post on this blog where I’m mentioning it. It might be the last; it might not be. Doesn’t really matter since I’m liable to talk about race relations and diversity issues all times during the year. It’s time to talk about it now; let’s see how many people I scare this time around.
As most people know by now, one of... [Read the full story]
It’s Still a Woman Thing with Hillary Clinton.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Bill Clinton barely got the words out of his mouth lambasting the Bernie Sanders camp for what he bluntly said were attacks on Hillary that were to sexist and to “profane” to repeat when a Sanders campaign official shot back that the attack was “disappointing.” Sanders for his part took the high road approach, acknowledged that he’d heard some nasty things from his supporters...

Black Women Unemployment Rate Spikes; A Threatening Sign For Whites!
(ThyBlackMan.com) It is regrettable that there were no lead stories among the African American press (print media or otherwise), which could have acted as a catalyst for a discussion of an issue of great import to the African American (AA) community. And that issue is the increase of the AA unemployment rate as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) for the month of January. However, the... [Read the full story]
Beyonce; On ‘Jackson Five Nostrils,’ Creole vs. ‘Negro’ and Beefing Over Beyoncé’s ‘Formation’.
(ThyBlackMan.com) I was born and raised in New Awlins and never miss the opportunity to remind folks of that. So when Beyoncé’s video for “Formation” dropped on Saturday, I, like the majority of my homegirls, was hype.
I wasn’t excited because I’m a certified Beyoncé stan, because the video is visually stunning, or because this seemed to be the Blackest iteration of Beyoncé yet.... [Read the full story]
RNC: Old School Politics.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Alright, alright; enough about my column from last week where I called out several RNC staffers by name because of their total disloyalty and disrespect towards me. No more jokes about me being introverted and never speaking my mind.
I will admit last week’s column was very pointed and blunt—by design.
I came into the Republican Party in the middle of the Reagan administration;... [Read the full story]
Black Folks; Raising Money or Just Raising Cain?
(ThyBlackMan.com) Bernie Sanders raised $20 million with the average donation being just $27.00. What is wrong with Black folks? For decades conscious Black leaders have cajoled, encouraged, admonished, and begged us to raise money among ourselves, a small amount from a lot of people, you know, the way Marcus Garvey did, which we love to brag about but never emulate. What we have done instead is raise... [Read the full story]
(ThyBlackMan.com) If one goes solely by mainstream media coverage, one would assume police/community relations in the inner city hadn’t progressed beyond the last riot! I’m typing this in New Orleans, whose police department is under a federal consent decree for severe shortfalls in several high-profile cases. I remain committed to uniting Black men and police officers, not because it’s... [Read the full story]
Marco Rubio: Sour Grapes, Slings and Arrows.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Governors Jeb Bush and Chris Christie join forces with Senator Ted Cruz to attack the most popular Republican running for president in 2016–Marco Rubio. Both Bush and Christie struggle to get campaign momentum, and hope New Hampshire will offer a breath of new life and an end to the donor hemorrhaging. Senator Cruz, on the other hand, appears to have wounded Donald Trump’s candidacy... [Read the full story]
Ted Cruz Once Again Proves Himself Presidential.
(ThyBlackMan.com) As the New Hampshire primary fast approaches, I wish to remind voters that our next Commander-in-Chief must be of the highest character; cut from the rare cloth of our founders.
Sometimes God gives us great gifts in ugly packages. Recent attacks on Ted Cruz from both the Trump and Dr Carson campaigns gifted Cruz an opportunity to show his character and presidential instincts. Ted... [Read the full story]
A Bad Breakup & 8 Mile Walk Led to the Most Amazing Love Album of Our Time.
(ThyBlackMan.com) A few years ago, Dr. Samori Swygert went through a bad breakup after a long term relationship. So what? Many of us have gone through a bad breakup. But this man, a pharmacist by trade, concocted the perfect formula for an amazing piece of art out of the hurt he suffered from the demise of his relationship.
One evening in Virginia, after walking eight miles to clear his mind, he sat... [Read the full story]
Five Habits to Cultivate Wellness.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Are you well or are you good? In English, we are taught the semantic difference. For health and fitness, though, we should aim to be ‘well’ and not ‘good’.
Wellness and exercise should not be confused. Wellness is the state or condition of being in sound physical and mental health. Exercise is a means to wellness. In fact, if you don’t exercise, the argument could be made... [Read the full story]
Black People: Are You A Zombie Helping Your Own Extermination?
(ThyBlackMan.com) Genocide is real. We have seen it through Apartheid, all over Africa and in Germany prior to World War II. Eugenics (population control) is real. Ethnic BioWeapons are real. But all that being sad, what are you doing while the powers that be are trying to exterminate your entire “race” or ethnicity? Maybe you don’t worry about it, refuse to think about it, don’t...
