We Must Stop the Misuse of Coon.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Black people let’s have a serious discussion about the use of the word coon, and others like it. That term has been popping up a lot lately, and honestly I feel it is both out of context and hypocritical. Have we really gotten to a place whereby we shame each other about methods? Do we realize that when we do this we are no better than our oppressor? How many of you would dare... [Read the full story]
World’s Salvation is the Maligned Black Race Pt. 1.
(ThyBlackMan.com) It is no secret that there are plans for a New World Order (globalization), President George Bush Sr. was quoted as saying “there will be a NWO and it will not be stopped” so just exactly what does that mean? The term is used to describe an accord of the world’s superpowers to rule, secure, and maintain the premise of “global peace”. However, the concept is to bring the... [Read the full story]
African History vs. African American Culture.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Back in 2015 while on an African visit, John Kerry, U.S. Secretary of State boldly said to the audience: “We have to do much more than just celebrate our history; we have to build the future.” Seems ironic that he would have to make such statements, but the truth is that our brothers and sisters in the motherland suffer from the same “disease” that afflicts African descendants...

Keep Your Space Positive.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Elbert Hubbard once said, Positive anything is better than negative nothing. Our biggest daily challenges do not exist in the mundane jobs we perform or in the roles we occupy each given hour. Our most challenging job as human beings is to ward off the constant attacks of negativity that comes our way in the form of people, places and things at any given hour on any given day. It...

Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump political debates -I’m not watching anymore.
(ThyBlackMan.com) A few minutes into the first presidential debate between Trump and Clinton, Hillary Clinton did the very thing that I cringe at and hoped she would not do. She went after Trump on a point about jobs and their alleged loss to China, Mexico, and just about everywhere else you can think of but here. If she hadn’t gone on the attack, Donald Trump sooner or later would have. They were... [Read the full story]
Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump Presidential Debate – My Thoughts.
(ThyBlackMan.com) The pundits say the presidential debate was the most watched debate in US history. Wow. I watched the first presidential debate Monday evening and I must say, it doesn’t look good for this country. What I saw alarmed me but the after show analysis was even more disturbing. It appeared as if Donald Trump was totally unprepared that he merely repeated his primary stump speech... [Read the full story]
Cultivating Right Relationships.
(ThyBlackMan.com) We live in a relationship reality; each day of our lives is shaped by it. Much of who we are – for better or worse – stems from a relationship, whether personal or interpersonal.
Our first relationship is with Divinity, God. Absent a relationship with a Higher Power, we are merely a mass of dangling human protoplasm. If there is no Higher Power than ourselves, then we automatically... [Read the full story]
A History Lesson – Black History.
(ThyBlackMan.com) As the doors swung open last week to the nation’s new Museum of African American History and Culture, my organization, CURE, was hosting another separate, but related event.
Fifty black pastors from around the nation convened in Washington, D.C., for CURE’s annual Pastor Policy Summit. CURE focuses on market and faith-based solutions to issues of race and poverty.
What’s the... [Read the full story]
Politics & Sports, Turnabout is fair play.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Why can’t more of us see that economics is the key to our freedom and the answer to the problems we talk about all the time? This political year has and continues to bring this fact to light, but the Colin Kaepernick protest illuminates the issue of economics even more. Here is a guy who chose to exercise his right not to stand at the playing/singing of the National Anthem, and... [Read the full story]
Love Him or Hate Him, Republican Donald Trump Has Transformed Politics Forever.
(ThyBlackMan.com) As my readers know, I don’t pay much attention to polls. I think they are a total waste of time and have proven to be extremely inaccurate over the past few years. According to polls, Mitt Romney should have been president after the 2012 elections.
Just as the polls have been egregiously wrong in predicting election results, so have most of the pundits in discussing the “Trump... [Read the full story]

Dads Take Your Child to School Day! The Department of Family and Community Engagement is partnering on this initiative. This event is similar to the Million Father March that was held on the first day of school nationally.

Black Students & Favors — School System.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Back in the 1960s, as large numbers of black students were entering a certain Ivy League university for the first time, someone asked a chemistry professor — off the record — what his response to them was. He said, “I give them all A’s and B’s. To hell with them.”
Since many of those students were admitted with lower academic qualifications than... [Read the full story]
Gabon’s Colonial Infection.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Once upon a time ago, a cruel and barbarous colonial power came to Africa with its friends to rape and pillage and murder and spread disease. The year was 1839 and through the nefarious barrel of cannon, France forced the signature of a treaty with local chiefs that gave it powers over the southern coastal regions of Africa which we presently call Gabon. The arrangement was made... [Read the full story]
Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton reaches out for his supporters.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Someone might want to inform Hillary Clinton that greed and envy are two of the seven deadly sins.
Her new revised tax plan would raise the estate tax to as high as 65 percent — up from 40 percent, where it is today. She would also apply this hated death tax to as many as twice as many estates.
It’s one of her dumbest ideas yet — and that is saying a lot. It won’t... [Read the full story]
