Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The drumbeat refrain from Tea Party leaders and more than a few wishful thinking GOP strategists, governors and congressional leaders is that the roll-out woes of the Affordable Care Act is the party’s passport to electoral victory in 2014 and 2016. Polls do show that a majority of Americans worry about the web site glitches,... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I heard a knock on the door of my hotel room. It was Donald. “Turn on Megyn Kelly. She is reporting about an MSNBC commentator’s claim that using the term “Obamacare” is the same as calling him the N word.” http://bit.ly/18QPu5V MSNBC’s Melissa Harris Perry’s accusation is absurd. It is an obvious weak attempt... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) “For it matters now how straight the gate/how charged with punishment the scroll/I am the master of my fate/I am the captain of my soul.” That is the fate stanza of the poem ‘Invictus’ as written by William Ernest Henley. It is also apparently the mindset of a visibly angry John Boehner. To that, I say it’s about time.... [Read more...]

Rich, White Kids Have “Affluenza,” Poor, Black Kids Go to Prison.

Filed under News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Last night, I made what might be one of my most emotional appearances ever on CNN’s AC360.  I’ve appeared on Anderson Cooper’s show more times than I can remember, but this was an appearance that I will never forget. The situation revolved around a discussion of “Affluenza,” a (fictitious) condition in which a person’s... [Read more...]

Racism, discrimination and lies. But it’s all in the spirit of Nelson Mandela…

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) In the wake of Madiba’s death there has been a lot of talk about “living in the spirit of Nelson Mandela”. It took less then a week to forget all about it again. Nelson Mandela’s memorial was insulted on-line, by media as well as social media. Most of the “white” media could not understand... [Read more...]

A Contemplation of Good, God, and Evil.

Filed under Christian Talk, News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I’m a freethinker on the subject of religion. I’m not a Bible thumper, I never attend church, and I don’t have much use for preachers. In fact, I just can’t see the logic in getting up early on Sunday morning and getting all dressed up just to go pay somebody to scream at me for two hours. I don’t see the logic... [Read more...]

Our Black Entertainers Are Just That, Entertainers.

Filed under Ent., Music, News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Frequently, I see African American authors and readers on this site and others take on the notion that African Americans in the media spotlight are obligated to produce music, tv shows and movies to our satisfaction. For quite some time, those expectations have been relied on superstars such as Lil’ Wayne, Tyler Perry and... [Read more...]

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Pleasantly surprised and a bit shocked, I enjoyed religious Christmas Carols played in the elevator of a major hotel. Progressive bullies are relentless in their quest to repeal the celebration of Jesus’ birthday, Christmas, declared a federal holiday in 1870 by President Ulysses S. Grant. Illustrating the effectiveness... [Read more...]
