Black Love: Symbolism or Reality?
(ThyBlackMan.com) Greetings Everyone,
Before I share my thoughts, I want to give you all this disclaimer. I’m a Black man; 28-years-old, single, with a weakness for Black women. I’m sharing with you all my perspective on what I see regarding black relationships in media and in real life. So, this will not be a playbook because I don’t have the answers…just a lot of questions.

Leftist Nightmare: Ol Black Conservatives Running for Office.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Someone passed on to me the latest video commentary by black conservative AlfonZo Rachel. http://bit.ly/28WbjVI Awesome! The brother boldly speaks the truth with humor, passion and intelligence. I first met Zo about 7 years ago.
His video caused me to reminisce about how we black conservatives have been out there on the front lines for many years; trying to wake up fellow blacks,... [Read the full story]
Jesse Williams’ Activism, Black Community Colorism and more.
(ThyBlackMan.com) By far, the BET Awards were more politicized Sunday night then they have ever been before. From the extraordinary opening performance by Beyonce and Kendrick Lamar, to Usher’s “Don’t Trump America”, there were underlying messages that permeated the biggest night in Black entertainment, and that was… ‘justice’.
However, there was one message that was quite clear... [Read the full story]
Ol Multiculturalism: A Failed Concept.
(ThyBlackMan.com) German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared that multiculturalism has “utterly failed,” adding that it was an illusion to think Germans and foreign workers could “live happily side by side.” The failure of multiculturalism is also seen in Denmark, Sweden, the United Kingdom, France, Belgium and other European countries. Immigrants coming from Africa and the Middle... [Read the full story]
Donald Trump, Republican Party Confuse Outreach Efforts with Pandering.
(ThyBlackMan.com) As long as the Republican Party continues to be dominated by the same ol’, same ol’ White male staffers, consultants, and aides, they will continue to alienate the Black community. As long as the Republican Party continues to “showcase” Blacks that have absolutely no connection to the Black community, have no understanding of communications, or no understanding of political...

The Harms Of Worshipping Money In The Black Community In America.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Money is supposed to liberate you, not mentally enslave you which the latter has done to so many of our people in America.
Worshipping money has become extremely detrimental to our community for several reasons.
1. It erodes your ability to make smart decisions (ex. Vince Young blew through more than $30 million dollars by engaging in financial ignorance like “making it rain”... [Read the full story]
The Lack Of Strong, Black Men On-Screen Is For A Reason.
Joe Morton’s character, Rowan Pope, on the hit ABC television show Scandal is the only reason I’ve continued to support the show. The reason being is because I don’t see too many Black men in films, sitcoms, or even on the local news that look like this; strong. The traditional tropes for Black men on-screen are as follows: We tend to be the sidekick, the best friend, the... [Read the full story]
US Deficit shrinks $1 Trillion under POTUS Leadership.
(ThyBlackMan.com) (This Feat Has Never Been Achieved Hitherto)
In order to appreciate the information contained herein, one must understand “the fiscal year” , which refers to any yearly period without regard to the calendar year, at the end of which a firm, government, etc., determines its financial condition.

Some of the Top African American Business Leaders.
(ThyBlackMan.com) America has been a melting pot of cultures, creeds, religions, and ethnicities since it was first discovered. African American communities have always been significant under-represented in powerful positions, however, having been oppressed for hundreds of years. This is why celebrating African American leadership is warranted. Let’s consider Charles Phillips, Infor CEO and Ursula... [Read the full story]
Diversity or Race? Or is It Privilege?
(ThyBlackMan.com) Our country is convulsing over issues of diversity and race. Police departments from Baltimore to Minneapolis are talking about diversity hiring as the antidote to anti-Black police brutality. Last year, Hollywood scrambled to find diverse Academy Award presenters after realizing its nominees were mainly white. (Again!) Today, a deeply divided United States Supreme Court upheld...

Elizabeth Warren is Hillary Clinton’s Best Bet for VP.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is Hillary’s best bet for VP. Why? Despite the relentless lampooning, ridiculing, and name-calling of Trump, and the smug writing of his political obituary, the election will be a close run up. The big GOP donors and handlers, the hate driven passion to beat Hillary, Trump’s skilled fear mongering and pander to bigotry, the never-ending... [Read the full story]
Why I Will NOT Vote For Neither Democrips and Rebloodicans.
(ThyBlackMan.com) These liberal and conservative pol-lie-ticians only “care” about us when it’s time to go out and vote.
To me, choosing between democrips and rebloodicans is like choosing to eat either rotten eggs or dog shit for dinner and those two parties are NOT good options to choose from.
Our community in America has NEVER really benefitted much from either of the two major... [Read the full story]
Spread Betting and Novel Investments for Everyday.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Spread betting may not be the most familiar investment term in your vocabulary, but it’s an investment form that’s finding increased popularity all around the world. If you don’t know what it is, don’t worry. You’re in good company. Right now, more than half of Americans never invest in the stock market, at any point in life. That makes sense when you think about how volatile... [Read the full story]
Jessie Williams speaks truth on Systemic Racism in America.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Even though I don’t watch award shows, but last night at The 2016 BET Awards, Beyonce and Kendrick rocked the crowd with their opening performance, but it was Jessie Williams that really stole the show with his speech about the systemic racism that we face daily in The Belly Of The Beast.
Here’s what he said about systemic racism, religion, conspicuous consumption, cultural... [Read the full story]
