Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I’ve always loved Stephen A. Smith.  His energy, intellect and instinct as a sports analyst is second-to-none.  I also appreciate the fact that every time I was on Stephen’s Show (“Quite Frankly, which ESPN should never have taken off the air), he always treated me with decency and respect.   I appreciated his show... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) One of the definitions of untouchable is: beyond criticism, control, or suspicion. As Black Women we have a tendency to think that we are beyond criticism, and when we are justifiably criticized we scream that we are being attacked, but have no problem verbally attacking Black Men, and because the Black Woman is so rebellious... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I don’t go out of my way to meet very many people.  I’m not sure if this makes me anti-social or not, but it’s just a fact.  In the course of my work, I’ve been blessed with the chance to bump into some extraordinary souls, and brilliant individuals who’ve climbed mountains in their sleep.  But there are few people... [Read more...]

Is It Fair To Compare NBA Kobe Bryant To NFL Oj Simpson.

Filed under News, Opinion, Sports, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I am good friends with former NBA player Etan Thomas.  I consider Etan to be one of the great athletes of our generation not just because he was an outstanding performer on the court, but also because he excels just as much off the court.  His promotion of fatherhood and conscientiousness in the black community is a throwback... [Read more...]

Filed under News, Opinion, Sports, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Like the rest of the world, I was stunned to hear Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant argue that it was somehow an unecessary burden for a black man to stand in support of the late Trayvon Martin.  If anything, the Trayvon Martin case brought black people together in ways that we haven’t seen since the death of Dr. Martin... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Recently I have been thinking, that I am glad South African apartheid was gone before Alicia Keyes, Rihanna & Beyoncé were born because I really believe that they would have performed there just to get a check.  Now I am not holding the aforementioned to the platitudes of others like Stevie Wonder or an AliceWalker or MayaAngelou,... [Read more...]

The Redefinition of Socialism.

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) President Obama’s political enemies and critics repeatedly refer to him as a socialist. These people used the words socialism and socialist as smears – as badges of dishonor and disdain. I think it’s a fair question to ask if they’re engaging in this incessant campaign of name calling accidentally or deliberately. And... [Read more...]

Yes, When Elephants and Donkeys Fight

March 25, 2014 by  
Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The Kenyan Proverb, “When elephants fight the grass suffers,” is very apropos to us, the grassroots. Only in our case, we are fighting over elephants and donkeys, but we are still the ones suffering. We watch the two parties fight every day, and then we take sides and jump in. Who is hurt by that? Certainly not them; it’s... [Read more...]
