Gentrification, Michael Rapaport & The White Savior Complex. Gentrification, Michael Rapaport & The White Savior Complex.

(ThyBlackMan.com) Gentrification can look a whole lot different depending what side of the fence you alive on. Recently there has been a lot of controversial comments over the remarks made by Spike Lee over the massive amount of gentrification going on these days in Brooklyn, New York, and actor Michael Rapaport has his thoughts on it indeed. First off, Spike Lee, being his usual outspoken self, compared... [Read the full story]


Two More Black actors Lost in the Hollywood shuffle?. Two More Black actors Lost in the Hollywood shuffle?.

(ThyBlackMan.com) They tell me that in order to make it in Hollywood you have to first sit on the casting couch. The casting couch basically means have sexual relations of all kinds with people in the industry who are well connected and in power. They include directors, agents, producers, etc. When I read that Will Smith’s son was going to wear a dress in a new slave movie I thought “like father,... [Read the full story]


7 Ways VH1 Is Destroying The Black Community. 7 Ways VH1 Is Destroying The Black Community.

(ThyBlackMan.com) Due to their interesting choices in programming, VH1 might be better referred to as “The Evil Empire.”  Their endless stream of reality TV shows tend to focus on taking otherwise irrelevant black people and making them as  recognizable as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr (I’m serious:  There are black kids who could identify a Basketball Wife before they could identify Dr. King... [Read the full story]


Yes, Amnesty for Illegals Can’t be Defended. Yes, Amnesty for Illegals Can’t be Defended.

(ThyBlackMan.com) I am totally perplexed by Republicans who advocate amnesty for those who entered the U.S. illegally.  We Republicans are supposed to be the party of law and order,  a party that stands on clearly defined principles. Let’s cut through the pompous rhetoric: The issue of amnesty is only about cheap labor.  All the other arguments are merely background noise. With the national unemployment... [Read the full story]


Thy government is coming after you…even if you did nothing wrong. Thy government is coming after you…even if you did nothing wrong.

(ThyBlackMan.com) It seems each day I am reminded of how poorly informed the average American is. This is especially true for the average African American, who speaks of politics through the jaundiced lens of faux progressivism and protecting our president and his political party no matter what they do. But for some reason, I think this is because as a community, things have changed. When I was growing... [Read the full story]


Wifing Politicians: I don’t love these politicians (plutocrats). Wifing Politicians: I don’t love these politicians (plutocrats).

(ThyBlackMan.com) I am writing to satisfy one issue, and that is why do folk take up for these political plutocrats regardless of political affiliation? It is as if folk cannot see they are all in the same gang of scratch my back crony-capitalist crooks. And for those unaware, crony capitalism refers to the intercourse between the state and corporate power. These cats have two sets of laws, one for... [Read the full story]

(ThyBlackMan.com) “IF YE WERE ABRAHAM’S CHILDREN, YE WOULD DO THE WORKS OF ABRAHAM” Every since I wrote the column “Crabs in a Barrel,” the gross hypocrisy of South Carolina State Senator, Rev. Darrell Jackson, has lingered with me. In that column I describe how the Black, South Carolina State Senator, who was also the pastor of the 10,000 member, “Family Way Bible... [Read the full story]


Sweet tooth: The red flag for stress. Sweet tooth: The red flag for stress.

(ThyBlackMan.com) As our worlds become increasingly more overrun with stress, albeit external or internal, it is no surprise that our waistlines have become the victim. Obesity and the problems associated with it are now at epidemic levels in the black community.

The State of Hip Hop. The State of Hip Hop.

(ThyBlackMan.com) Time has brought about an immeasurable amount of change. In hip hop’s heyday, rap music was, without question, authentic and thorough; nowadays, people march to a different drum. It appears that only one vainglorious record is all that is required for an individual to be awarded a multi-million dollar recording contract. As a result, the true art of rap music has been compromised... [Read the full story]


Equal Pay for Women Helps Us All. Equal Pay for Women Helps Us All.

(ThyBlackMan.com) Could you use an additional $24,000 in your yearly wages? How about nearly $19,000? Or even just another $11,000 to $12,000? Those figures are what you get – or rather, what women who work full-time don’t get because of the pervasive “wage gap” between women and men. Correcting that injustice is one reason President Obama last week issued an executive order and a presidential... [Read the full story]
