Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) One of the truisms I have come to respect is this one: “You cannot effect change without putting some skin in the game.” Blacks are hurting as a race of people. There are the one per cent like, Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce, Jay Z, President Obama, Al Sharpton and others such as professional athletes, who are doing just great, but... [Read more...]

Once you’ve spent time anticipating the experience, make sure you actually enjoy the experience. In our text-happy, social-media... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Back in the 1990s, the rapper Master P created a song called “Bout it Bout it.”  The song had a catchy chorus and helped him build his multi-million dollar musical empire.  I can’t say that I listen to Master P anymore, but I woke up thinking about his song this morning.

Filed under News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The predictable happened as soon as the race of the three teens charged in the Oklahoma slaying of Christopher Lane, a young white Australian baseball player was known.
