Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Look up the word ‘love’ in the dictionary.  For the most part it is defined as a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person.  However, to a man (or woman) when asked the definition of this word, rarely do we provide this generic answer.  Try it.  Text ten people you know and ask them to define the word... [Read more...]

Thy Black Christians: Shame! Shame! Shame!

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Increasingly, I am hearing the following mantra/narrative from Black Christians. “I’m voting for Obama because he is the lesser of the two evils.” This is an extremely weak veiled attempt to justify their racism and loyalty to The Black Code (never side with a white against a fellow black). From a Christian point of... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) So everyone is talking about the situation that occurred between the Brother that was driving the bus and the Sister that was a passenger, and I wanted to give my thoughts on the matter. I posted the link on both of my Facebook pages and I must say, the amount of deflection that was exhibited by some of the women that commented... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) During this deep recession, and true to 400 years of Black history, we have a group of Black, Black haters and poverty pimps running all over the country selling their books, promoting their television and radio shows, elevating their speaking fees, and playing crabs-in-a-barrel by blaming President Obama for the high unemployment... [Read more...]

Cornel West & Tavis Smiley, King Barack Obama can do no wrong.

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Let me start from the truthful beginning:  I love and respect Tavis Smiley and Cornel West immensely.  I don’t care who knows it, and I don’t care who gets mad.  I’ve had my differences with both men in the past, but I was taught that even if you admire someone, you should still be honest when you critique them.  My... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Rappers Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Kanye West, “P” Diddy, 50 Cent, and hip-hop businessmen Russell Simmons, and Robert Johnson, just to name a few, are members of the 100 Million Dollar Club—Robert Johnson perhaps being the lone billionaire. The accomplishments that each has attained is remarkable; however, the means to which they... [Read more...]

Baracknophobia.

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) During the first presidential debate, liberals looked on in horror as President Obama did his best Timothy Mozgov impression, allowing Mitt Romney to posterized him with a thunderous presidential debate performance reminiscent of Blake Griffin’s most famous dunk. The fallout was as swift as it was unprecedented. MSNBC’s... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) One morning last week, I turned out of my neighborhood to head to my office and was startled by what appeared to be a cloud of smoke across a wide swath of gray sky. The tall buildings that normally tower over the nearby streets were nowhere to be seen. It was a bit disorienting. As I tried to make sense of it, I had only one... [Read more...]

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Sometimes I have random thoughts while sitting and waiting for other things to happen:  I come to a realization about politics while I’m at the grocery store, or I’ll figure out the meaning of life while doing my laundry.  I’m always thinking, probably a bit too much.  Today, the question that came to mind was the one... [Read more...]

GOP out of touch with reality.

October 13, 2012 by  
Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I saw an astounding figure that approximately 70 percent of Republicans believe that the poll numbers on the presidential race are biased towards President Obama. In other words, they are asserting that because President Obama has been – at least at the time of this column – ahead in most polls, this cannot be correct and... [Read more...]
