Three Styles That Flatter Your Curves. Three Styles That Flatter Your Curves.

(ThyBlackMan.com) There is always the same debate – do curvy women look better, or skinny ones? Of course, any body shape has its fans, and while supermodels will probably always be tall and thin (simply because they are hired to show off clothes, and most clothes hang better on a skinny body), there will also always be curvier icons like Beyonce and Kim Kardashian. What is really important when... [Read the full story]

(ThyBlackMan.com) Last summer, I believe it was July 17, while driving through Staten Island, I saw a gang of goons, all clad in blue, threateningly surrounding a fearful fellow who appeared to be fumbling a stuttering explanation to his menacing interrogators. They were all wearing baggy, blue khakis that were sagging downward. They must be crips, I thought. Rumor has it that they are thugs and hoodlums,... [Read the full story]


Thy Temperature of Black America. Thy Temperature of Black America.

(ThyBlackMan.com) It’s one thing to get mad at a racist cop in Ferguson or Baltimore. But a white man, in a church, where he was trusted to sit with a small group of worshippers who were opening their hearts to God? It pushes us close to the edge. Just how close? I conducted my own opinion survey by listening to some of my black friends talk. An usher at a local church told me that upon seeing... [Read the full story]
