For Women, It Really Is ‘All About Love.
(ThyBlackMan.com) I’ll get right down it. Women are objectified on a constant basis in this world. The same holds true here in the United States of America. Our culture may be among the worst offenders in this particular area. Women as sex objects permeate our movies, television shows, songs of virtually every genre, magazine and newspaper articles, books, and our commercials. Entire industries are... [Read the full story]
MSNBC’s Firing of Martin Bashir Reminds Black People that We are Only The Help.
(ThyBlackMan.com) I can’t really say that I’ve ever liked Martin Bashir all that much. His move 10 years ago to undermine Michael Jackson in a deceptive fashion didn’t sit well with me. I presume that Bashir had an ethical reason to do what he did and wasn’t just trying to promote himself to stardom. Either way, throwing Michael Jackson under the bus was a huge career move for the host.

I can’t promise that I’ll be good to you
‘Cuz I’ve... [Read the full story]

Some may argue against it, but these acts continue to adversely affect the growth, development, and progression of the Black... [Read the full story]
Is the culture of ‘Bad Girls Club’ ruining the ‘Black Girls Rock’ mantra? An open letter to Oxygen Network.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Dear Oxygen Network: Lets talk! I have a confession to make: I’am a ‘Bad Girls Club’ junkie. I am not proud of watching girls behaving badly, but it’s one of those reality TV shows that makes me pause and wonder. Which brings me to the reason for this ‘Dear John’ letter. Like any other bad habit it started out innocently enough, and before... [Read the full story]
Inside The Business Of Selling Out In Music.
(ThyBlackMan.com) More hands and reasons in selling out than the average mind may think.

To swiftly get to the point, he claimed Will.i.am was selling himself out as an artist to increase his fan base and to keep his pockets flowing. Will’s music has frequently... [Read the full story]

So, the idea of “black unity” has to evolve in such a way that helps us to understand who our friends are and who our enemies are. When I spoke to Dr. Steve Perry this week about our event in Washington DC on December 1, one thing we agreed on is that we are sometimes... [Read the full story]

The President’s Not the Only One That Needs to Be Held Accountable.
(ThyBlackMan.com) I can totally agree that the President could do a lot more for our people, but a lot of what has and is happening with the economy happen on Bush’s watch. He opened the flood gates for wall streets greed to put us in this position. I believe the Presidents problem is who he has surrounded himself with. I believe he’s getting bad advice. But all that he’s done isn’t all bad.... [Read the full story]
