What I learned from the Mamba. What I learned from the Mamba.

(ThyBlackMan.com) It’s been a little over two weeks since Kobe Bryant passed and here’s what I’ve learned; Kobe was deified in some circles. Not just for his ability to play basketball but his attitude, work ethic and commitment to being the best. He was equally as human as he appeared to be superhuman. He retired from basketball and committed to being a father and man the same way he committed... [Read the full story]


Will the Social Security and Medicare Cut Split the Donald Trump Base. Will the Social Security and Medicare Cut Split the Donald Trump Base.

(ThyBlackMan.com) There are many Americans that rely on their social security check to make ends meet. Without Medicare they would not be able to get the medical treatment they need, and without SNAP they would not eat. This is the reality of more Americans than the current president wants to acknowledge. I may not be the best at math, but if your only 13% at best of the population you are not leading... [Read the full story]


Snoop Dogg Apologized for the Delivery. Snoop Dogg Apologized for the Delivery.

Book Review; Shifting: A Perspective on the Complexity of Being a Black Woman in America. Book Review; Shifting: A Perspective on the Complexity of Being a Black Woman in America.

(ThyBlackMan.com) It is not a secret that black women live a gifted but difficult life in America. Though what we represent has been appropriated in several areas, who we are is often unaccepted and penalized. It has never been popular to be a black woman from the plantation to now. To survive we must tread multiple faces in every space we inhabit. It feels as if there is no true place to lay one’s... [Read the full story]


The FBI says New Orleans is not the Most Dangerous City in Louisiana. The FBI says New Orleans is not the Most Dangerous City in Louisiana.

(ThyBlackMan.com) Every time I look up someone is telling me how dangerous New Orleans is, and they question why I live here. Ironically I hear this a lot from residents across the state of Louisiana as much as I do from others. If I were listening to others…this city is a cesspool of violence and no good thing other than a party can come from it. There are many native New Orleanians that would move... [Read the full story]


MLK & Black Power. MLK & Black Power.

(ThyBlackMan.com) There is no sensible argument that can be made to counter W.E.B. Du Bois’ statement that “the problem of the 20th Century will be the color line.” If any criticism can be hurled at this Duboisian prophecy it is that it ends too soon and should have been extended far into the new millennium. For many of our countrymen, it is Race that remains their rallying point. Even when... [Read the full story]


We Need Donald Trump to Keep Schools Safe. We Need Donald Trump to Keep Schools Safe.

(ThyBlackMan.com) Maybe now that the impeachment circus is behind us, we can start having a serious conversation about what’s truly at stake in the 2020 election.

And school safety is the clearest reason to re-elect Donald Trump. This opinion... [Read the full story]


New Orleans Needs a Mayor that is Progressive & Native. New Orleans Needs a Mayor that is Progressive & Native.

(ThyBlackMan.com) It is important to understand we can champion progression while protecting culture. There are places that are not cookie cutter. Cities are not the same, and we should be able to celebrate the difference as it has something to do with why we visit said places. It’s fair to say natives understand the why’s of a culture…they are the culture. Culture is very hard to preserve, even... [Read the full story]


When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong; Why Someone Needs To Come And Get Susan ‘Ride Or Die’ Rice Immediately. When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong; Why Someone Needs To Come And Get Susan ‘Ride Or Die’ Rice Immediately.

(ThyBlackMan.com) Years ago, famed comedian Dave Chapelle blessed the world with a skit titled “When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong.” Those who remember the skit will tell you that it was various scenarios where some people decided that they would no longer stand for some injustice and decided to intercede as if provided superhero powers that allowed for them to prevent an injustice from occurring.... [Read the full story]


The Offensiveness Of Color-Blindness In America. The Offensiveness Of Color-Blindness In America.

(ThyBlackMan.com) It is difficult to argue against the fact that those among us who insist that they “do not see color” are balanced between being well-meaning and naïve. My familiarity with such types is best expressed by an unemotional reaction to their pleadings for me to join the ranks of the historically illiterate. Despite what the “color-blind brigade” believes, I understand that their... [Read the full story]

Mr President (Donald Trump), Don’t Go Changin’. Mr President (Donald Trump), Don’t Go Changin’.

(ThyBlackMan.com) On Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace implied that Trump behaved vengeful by firing Col Vindman after his impeachment acquittal. Wallace’s guest, Republican advisor Karl Rove said Trump should be moving the country forward after his acquittal rather than passionately calling out the Democrats. I thought, “Are you guys nuts? Have you not been paying attention?” Deranged... [Read the full story]


Why Does the Democratic Party Disapprove of A Consumer Tax Cut? Why Does the Democratic Party Disapprove of A Consumer Tax Cut?

(ThyBlackMan.com) Even Trump’s fiscal 2021 budget, has in it a projected individual (Consumer) tax cut costing $1.4 trillion. Yet, Dems, through presidential candidates, “lead messaging” ignore the need, for such a Tax Cut. However, any Republican Tax Cut to consumers will lightly go through a 3rd party, diluting any real benefits to consumers, rewarding instead the 3rd parties, who... [Read the full story]
