Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com)  What do you mean you can’t do math? You invented it! An animal bone, with markings used for counting, discovered in South Africa is estimated to be more than 35,000 years old. Another bone, the Ishango Bone, found in the Democratic Republic of Congo, not only has markings for counting, but also prime numbers which indicate... [Read more...]

Dr. Boyce Watkins; Why This Black Business Scholar Feels Sorry for Donald Trump…

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Like nearly every other black man in America, I’ve been taken aback by the manner through which Donald Trump has used racist code language to undermine the presidency of Barack Obama.  After first wondering if he was born in the United States, Trump has made reference to Obama playing too much basketball to pay attention... [Read more...]

Dr. Boyce Watkins; Kid Rock, the NAACP and the Confederate Flag: Three Questions I’d Like to Ask…

Filed under News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The NAACP of Detroit has committed what appears to be an incredibly sad act by giving it’s Great Expectations Award to Kid Rock during it’s annual Fight for Freedom Fund Dinner.  It’s ironic that the  NAACP is giving an award to someone who regularly uses the Confederate   flag during his concerts.  The... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The tables were turned on PBS late-night broadcaster Tavis Smiley when Need to Know’s Alison Stewart asked him to explain his recent comment describing the forthcoming election as “going to be the ugliest, the nastiest, the most divisive, and the most racist in the history of this Republic” on Need to Know airing tonight... [Read more...]

Kamau Franklin; Blacks in America Should be Headed to Divorce Court – Counterpoint to an Article Written by Bro. Herndon…

Filed under News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) A short counter-point to my colleague Darrick Herndon’s piece in ThyBlackMan. America has never been a melting pot; it’s been more of a stew, where some of the vegetables are pushed to the top while others have always been pushed down closer to the fire. However life in America is changing where those who thought they were... [Read more...]

Reggie Legend; Fair Weather Friends of God…

Filed under Christian Talk, News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) In Revelation, Jesus said that He’d rather us (the Church) be hot or cold and not lukewarm.  The irony of this is that it’s when the weather tosses these extremes of hot and cold at us that we show lukewarm sentiments the best!  While He wasn’t speaking from a meteorologist’s point of view, it is still interesting to... [Read more...]

Brian Foulks; What does it means to Black and a Christian…

April 29, 2011 by  
Filed under Christian Talk, Misc., News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) For the past year, I have been wrestling with the thought- “What does it means to Black and a Christian.” That may appear as a no-brainer comment with a diluted intent to segregate but that is far from the truth. It unpacks a question that many young black males ultimately wrestle with as they are taught the stories of slavery.... [Read more...]

Darrick Herndon; African and American: Life in Two Nations…

April 29, 2011 by  
Filed under Misc., News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) America’s reputation as a multicultural melting pot is well deserved.  We are a nation made out of many to form one.  While the world’s best and brightest are drawn to our country to study and to work, the African-American experience has largely been one filled with marginalization.  While the world’s huddled masses... [Read more...]

Filed under Health, News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) There are many ways to manage and reduce stress levels, and your diet and nutrition choices can have a very powerful effect on whether those levels go up or down. Certain foods provide comfort and actually increase levels of hormones in the body that naturally fight stress. The right food can also help relieve stress by lowering... [Read more...]

Protecting Your Mind from Sinful Thoughts…

April 29, 2011 by  
Filed under Christian Talk, News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Satan had been showing a pattern of attacking me. I had gradually become very angry at some things. Most of my anger was aimed at my husband and in our marriage of twelve years. I began to seek a way to combat this spiritual attack. I wanted to write a letter to my husband and tell him why I was angry. I knew doing this would... [Read more...]
