Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Once again the Black community has been shown how irrelevant they have become in the U.S.  Most of the blame can be laid at the feet of the media appointed Black leadership for selling out their people.

Tweet (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.
