The Big Reward in Donald Trump’s Perennial Race-Baiting.
(ThyBlackMan.com) First, front running GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump cheers on a crowd at a campaign rally in Birmingham, Alabama that physically and verbally assaults a black protestor. He then follows that up with a tweet on phony and doctored black crime figures that were so racist that even some staunch conservatives cringed at the ploy. They didn’t buy his lame, partial walk back excuse... [Read the full story]
Politics: The Disappearing Governors.
(ThyBlackMan.com) There is a painful irony in a recent decision of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, on the side of Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, whom the U.S. Department of Justice tried to stop from making charter schools widely available to minority youngsters in his state.
The Circuit Court’s decision over-ruled a lower court decision on the side of the Justice Department, which... [Read the full story]
5000 Role Models and Call Me Mister in Duval County Public Schools.

The Murdering of Black Men!
(ThyBlackMan.com) Black men know why we are murdered. We talk about it. Black men know why we are incarcerated. We mull about it. Black men know why we are mis-educated. Dr. Carter G. Woodson penned a book about it! We may play stupid; we may even act stupid; but, trust me, we are far from stupid. We know exactly what’s going on!
For starters, Black men, intellectually, are the most intimidatingly... [Read the full story]
Part 2: 15 Tips For Being Healthy On A Tight Budget.
AVOID FRIED FOODS
All oils used at restaurants are derived from a GMO substance coupled with the meat or French fries, which are most likely GMO. Chemicals from the food and the oil damage your body. Instead pick the healthier choice of roasting, grilling, or broiling.
CANNED AND FROZEN VEGETABLES
If access to fresh produce is limited, canned vegetables are the best alternative.... [Read the full story]
Part 1: The Privilege Of Being Healthy In America.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Having a healthy lifestyle in America is a privilege relegated to those with the socio-economic status that provides the opportunity and environment for healthy practices. The poor must endure all the social ills and are unfairly ostracized by social dynamics out of their control that dictate the level of health they and their loved ones are able to experience. The myth circulating... [Read the full story]
Ol Political Translations.
(ThyBlackMan.com) It is amazing how many different ways the same thing can be said, creating totally different impressions. For example, when President Barack Obama says that defeating ISIS is going to take a long time, how is that different from saying that he is going to do very little, very slowly? It is saying the same thing in different words.
Defenders of the administration’s policies may... [Read the full story]
Black Voters; Republicans Are Data Driven, But Have No Vision.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Last week my super PAC, Black Americans for a Better Future, launched its inaugural speaker’s series with Maryland Lieutenant Governor Boyd Rutherford. This was his first national media event since being sworn into office back in January.
Rutherford is a phenomenal administrator and Maryland’s governor, Larry Hogan, could not have chosen a better person to be his running mate.
Rutherford... [Read the full story]
Yes, Adults Are the Problem.
(ThyBlackMan.com) It is time for adults of every race and income group to break our silence about the pervasive breakdown of moral, family, and community values, to place our children first in our lives, and to struggle to model the behavior we want our children to learn.
School children don’t need one more “Officer Slam” as some students referred to the White South Carolina school resource officer... [Read the full story]
The Presence of Prayer.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Ever wonder what’s at the heart of the differences between older generations and their current offspring? I do, a lot.
Sometimes I am amazed that teenaged boys and girls can sit at the same table texting an entire conversation and never speaking a word to each other. The absence of verbal skills amazes me. They like to call it multi-tasking. But to me it’s like texting while... [Read the full story]
The Difference Lies in the Confidence…
(ThyBlackMan.com) Do you ever find yourself steaming over what you “should” have said in a conversation, but didn’t because you kept quiet? Do you wish you could apply for a new position, but because you lack all of the qualifications, you don’t bother? Do you ever hold yourself back before others have a chance to reject you? Confidence is what turns your thoughts into action – an invisible... [Read the full story]
Five Ways Materialism Is Killing The Black Community.
(ThyBlackMan.com) There is no doubt the black community is full of materialistic consumers. Despite being only 13% of the population in the United States, we are large consumers of smart phones, flat screen televisions and other non-essential gadgets and gizmos that give us “status and credibility” in our circles. We spend over $1 trillion dollars annually on our basic needs, but mostly on our... [Read the full story]
GOP Ignore Black People.
(ThyBlackMan.com) As I watched the Republican debate on October 10, I thought about Kanye West and the comments he made after Hurricane Katrina decimated New Orleans. He said, “George Bush doesn’t care about Black people”. Later he tiptoed away from the comment by saying he “regretted” it, but he never apologized.
Five years later, in 2010, Bush gave the Today Show’s Matt Lauer an interview.... [Read the full story]
Refusing to own a gun may cost Rep. Jeb Bush dearly.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Republicans love guns as much as they hate big government. Maybe I should say: real conservatives take their right to bear arms and defend themselves under the US Constitution’s second amendment VERY seriously. There’s a reason why you see so many bumper stickers reading “God, country, guns” on Republicans’ cars.
During the 2008 campaign, Democrat presidential candidate... [Read the full story]
