Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I received a phone call from a friend of mine who teaches elementary school. She told me that she’d spent the week excited about the fact that some college basketball players were coming to her school to eat lunch with the kids. She thought that her inner city students would gain from the chance to be mentored by the men they... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) “When John Singleton did Boyz-N-the Hood everybody went out to see it. But when John Singleton did Rosewood nobody went to go see it. We vote with our wallets, our pocket books and our time in front of the idiot box”-Spike Lee.

When Black Men are Jealous of Their Black Women.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Black Love.  It begins simply enough: you are everything he says he ever wanted.  You are smart, independent, charming, sexy, and a suitable representative of the two of you. You are able to bring thoughts, opinions, and ideas to the union. You are not dead weight that he has to think for, do for, and support without assistance. ... [Read more...]

Why Men Should Hit on Women at Church.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I was thinking to myself the other day – I have NEVER been hit on at church.  Real, genuine churchgoing men are like unicorns, so why when I take my seat in the pews seeing all manner of men before me like I’ve just landed at the other end of the rainbow, I always leave empty-handed – no pot of gold, no man?  A goon will... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Susan Rice hasn’t even been nominated to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, but Republicans act as though she has.  The attacks are coming fast and furious (pun intended) but they are as misguided and inaccurate as the War in Iraq.  Senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and John McCain of Arizona have already... [Read more...]

President Obama vs. The GOP.

November 28, 2012 by  
Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The conventional political wisdom is that now that President Obama is safely back in the White House and does not have to worry about reelection, he can do what a few other freshly minted second term presidents have done. And that’s take off the gloves and let fly with a series of bold, reform initiatives. FDR, Harry Truman,... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Today’s technology gives men, all kinds of men, access to women like they’ve never, ever had. Have you ever stopped to think about that?
