A Contemplation of Good, God, and Evil.
(ThyBlackMan.com) I’m a freethinker on the subject of religion. I’m not a Bible thumper, I never attend church, and I don’t have much use for preachers. In fact, I just can’t see the logic in getting up early on Sunday morning and getting all dressed up just to go pay somebody to scream at me for two hours. I don’t see the logic in that, and I never did, even when I was forced to participate... [Read the full story]
Our Black Entertainers Are Just That, Entertainers.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Frequently, I see African American authors and readers on this site and others take on the notion that African Americans in the media spotlight are obligated to produce music, tv shows and movies to our satisfaction. For quite some time, those expectations have been relied on superstars such as Lil’ Wayne, Tyler Perry and an assortment of other black entertainers. But of course,... [Read the full story]
Sending Holiday Season Regards to our Conservative Warriors.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Pleasantly surprised and a bit shocked, I enjoyed religious Christmas Carols played in the elevator of a major hotel. Progressive bullies are relentless in their quest to repeal the celebration of Jesus’ birthday, Christmas, declared a federal holiday in 1870 by President Ulysses S. Grant.
Illustrating the effectiveness of the progressive’s intimidation, anonymously signs... [Read the full story]

The Top Five Activators to Boost Your Personal Productivity.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Think about this: How much money – both now and in future earnings – are you losing because you simply don’t have the energy to perform all of your essential, everyday tasks? What if you had more energy to go back to school and complete that degree plan? To write that book you’ve been contemplating forever? Or just to take your kids to the park for a game of touch football?... [Read the full story]
Black Unemployment Eased From 13.1% To 12.5%.

The national unemployment rate dropped from 7.3% to 7.0%. The program attempts to create the right economic environment for job creation.

R.I.P. Nelson Mandela: Nothing Is Impossible.
(ThyBlackMan.com) It’s Friday morning as I’m writing this. I’m in a somber, yet reflective mood. On yesterday (Thursday), Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela – anti-apartheid revolutionary, philanthropist, author, spiritual father, and former President of South Africa – passed away. We just lost a man of great vision, valor, and dignity. Mr. Mandela’s life was an extended case study of fighting the... [Read the full story]
Barack Hussein Obama Will Be Remembered As One of Our Greatest Presidents.
(ThyBlackMan.com) I am sick to death of these so-call Black “intellectuals” spending so much time criticizing President Obama – not because I don’t feel that EVERY politician’s feet should be held to the fire, I do, but because most of the nonsense they’re spewing is pure, unmitigated, ignorance. And what makes it worse is it’s either purposeful ignorance, or ignorance due... [Read the full story]
Manny Pacquiao – Floyd Mayweather Jr. in October 2015, Maybe.
(ThyBlackMan.com) For almost four years there has been talk of Floyd “Money” Mayweather taking on Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao in what many believe would be the richest prizefight ever in the history of boxing. During the initial negotiations, the Mayweather camp called for random “Olympic Style Drug Testing” for “Performance Enhancing Drugs” (PEDS). The Pacquiao camp countered with three...

Black Voters Are Now Up for Grabs.
(ThyBlackMan.com) I had an extensive conversation last week with a prominent Republican political operative about next year’s congressional elections. This operative is one of the godfathers of Republican politics and has played at the highest level for more than 30 years.
He wanted to talk with me about the Black vote in light of President Obama being in the White House. He is not one of the... [Read the full story]
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.
