Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) A few weeks ago I wrote an article about the inimitable Ron Paul (R) Texas. The article’s theme was the dangers of Mr. Ron Paul and it focused on his comments about the Federal Emergency Management Association, FEMA, and, I believe that I touched into Paul’s social beliefs which I truly feel are based in bigotry.... [Read more...]

Sexting and Bullying One In The Same…

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Expanding bullying into the area of Sexting has brought this debatable crime more into the light of law enforcement and cyber investigation. The reality is that one in five tweens/teens/young adults maybe risking prison because of sending and receiving child pornography. This includes risking a life of prison because of  distributing... [Read more...]

Arthur Lewin; A Lynching By Any Other Name…

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Last week we saw a lynching on TV.  We saw a man pleading for his life as he was brutally beaten and subsequently killed. His name was Muammar Qadaffi, and he was the leader of the African country called Libya. This is not the time to debate what he is alleged to have done or not done, to glibly discuss whether or not he was... [Read more...]

Jimmy Graham – A True Baller…

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) That’s right, Jimmy Graham!  Most of the public is only recently becoming aware of the story of Jimmy Graham.  I find this very unfortunate, but true. Jimmy Graham is a tight end for the New Orleans Saints football team.  As of this writing, he is the leading tight end in the N.F.L. in terms of receptions and touchdowns. ... [Read more...]

Black Dads; Hard Ball and Sons…

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Sometimes—especially with sons—you have to “play hardball.” If you’re a father of boys, you have my prayers. They’ll make you proud, but they also may make you crazy. One of the key areas you need to address with your sons is their aggressiveness. I saw it in my sons and in other boys in the neighborhood.... [Read more...]

Herman Cain The Free Thinker…

October 26, 2011 by  
Filed under Misc., News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Herman Cain’s quote was, “If you are unemployed and not rich it is no one’s fault but yours.” All of my life I have heard White and Black people make almost the identical statement, but the meaning is the same. Allow me to put his statement in several categories. There have always been a substantial number of rich people... [Read more...]

Occupy Movement Thoughts – Get Rid of Greed for the Good of Us All…

Filed under Misc., News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Greed and the desire for self-improvement are two separate things. Greed by definition is an “EXCESSIVE” desire to achieve goods and wealth. This is often done at the expense of others, and ultimately leads to corruption and manipulation to satisfy that excessive desire. Self-improvement and a desire for upward mobility,... [Read more...]

President Obama African Policy; Somalia Neocolonialist Genocide…

Filed under Misc., News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I often wonder what Obama’s father would say about his son’s incessant intervention in Africa. For certain, I know he would not say Obama’s loves him some Africa. Maybe he would because every time we look around, he sending troops to the continent left and right and in all cases to date, to murder established leaders. We... [Read more...]

Beyonce belly bump and cheating music ways…

October 26, 2011 by  
Filed under Ent., Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Beyoncé’s been catching a lot flack lately. In the past month, if gossip bloggers weren’t clucking about her pregnancy (or non-pregnancy, as some people still believe), they were taking the diva to task for not rolling a disclaimer that her newest videos have been inspired by 90s R&B supergroups and Belgian choreographers. Now,... [Read more...]

Black America is Self Destructing…

October 25, 2011 by  
Filed under Misc., News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) It is quite evident that Black folks in the U.S. are at the bottom of every good category and at the top of every bad one. You know the stats; they are released every month or so and paint a dreary picture of our status when it comes to incarceration, education, health, employment, net worth, income, life expectancy, and overall... [Read more...]
