Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) There are genuine and sincere men and women of integrity who believe Mr. Obama’s policies have not been affected in lifting blacks out of their dismal economic condition brought on by the 2008 downturn. The facts are on the side of critics in that blacks have not fared well under the Obama Administration. You merely have to... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) African American men have great untapped potential, given by God our creator. There is a gold mine of gifts, genius, talents, abilities and resources among black men. These resources have gone untapped for two reasons: External forces such as racism, discrimination, poor role models or no role models including the absence of... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Too many times in my walk I’ve observed many people seek to fill the void that they carry inside of them by seeking the validation of others who are the wrong people to seek fulfillment from. It’s almost like they are on fire from within in an unseen manner and seek relief from the first thing that comes along that shows... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The only way to change the radio format is to change ourselves. One day at a time. It is a far gone conclusion, that the radio format today is particularly garbage from top to bottom. For hip hop, guns, sex and drugs govern the airwaves. For R&B it’s more of promiscuous sex and buying bottles in the club for that... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Overruling myself, I am now doing what I said I would not; I am writing a column in which I mention two items: Skittles and Iced Tea. I cringed every time I heard those words during the pursuit of justice for Trayvon Martin and his family, and throughout the trial of George Zimmerman. They became synonymous with Trayvon himself,... [Read more...]

Don’t Call Us Black Anymore..Just Call Us Guilty.

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) “It’s not about race.” We’ve seen and heard those words said many times over the last few weeks. As an intelligent black man, hearing these words repeated so often gives me the impression that black people aren’t the only ones that need convincing, as if repeating the mantra enough will make it a fact. Being judged... [Read more...]

Yes, Looking for Televised Insight Into Black Condition Is Hopeless.

July 29, 2013 by  
Filed under News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Televised simple-mindedness is not beholden to any particular race, political bent or sexual orientation. We should not be surprised that a cross-section of TV talking heads cannot identify the root cause of rampant black-on-black violence. It is not poverty. It is not the disintegration of the black family. It is not cultural... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I expressed concern to a friend about the policies being endorsed by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.   My friend then asked me, “Would you feel better if President Bush’s closest advisers were all white males?” I replied, “Actually, they are white males.  It just so happens that one of them has dark-skin... [Read more...]

If you want to count yourself among those who get off this frustrating weight cycling treadmill, ditch that diet now! Shedding extra pounds is rarely easy. Keeping it off is the... [Read more...]

July 28, 2013 by  
Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) As a black conservative tea party activist, I am extremely excited about Bill O’Reilly’s recent series of commentaries and TV shows addressing the hypocrisy and exploitation by the American race industry that has and continues to devastate the black community. Bill O’Reilly boldly called out all of the usual suspects,... [Read more...]
