Filed under Ent., News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) They tell me that in order to make it in Hollywood you have to first sit on the casting couch. The casting couch basically means have sexual relations of all kinds with people in the industry who are well connected and in power. They include directors, agents, producers, etc. When I read that Will Smith’s son was going to wear... [Read more...]

7 Ways VH1 Is Destroying The Black Community.

Filed under Ent., News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Due to their interesting choices in programming, VH1 might be better referred to as “The Evil Empire.”  Their endless stream of reality TV shows tend to focus on taking otherwise irrelevant black people and making them as  recognizable as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr (I’m serious:  There are black kids who could identify... [Read more...]

Yes, Amnesty for Illegals Can’t be Defended.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I am totally perplexed by Republicans who advocate amnesty for those who entered the U.S. illegally.  We Republicans are supposed to be the party of law and order,  a party that stands on clearly defined principles. Let’s cut through the pompous rhetoric: The issue of amnesty is only about cheap labor.  All the other arguments... [Read more...]

Thy government is coming after you…even if you did nothing wrong.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) It seems each day I am reminded of how poorly informed the average American is. This is especially true for the average African American, who speaks of politics through the jaundiced lens of faux progressivism and protecting our president and his political party no matter what they do. But for some reason, I think this is because... [Read more...]

Wifing Politicians: I don’t love these politicians (plutocrats).

April 21, 2014 by  
Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I am writing to satisfy one issue, and that is why do folk take up for these political plutocrats regardless of political affiliation? It is as if folk cannot see they are all in the same gang of scratch my back crony-capitalist crooks. And for those unaware, crony capitalism refers to the intercourse between the state and corporate... [Read more...]

An Easter Sunday Sermon From a Non-Preacher, Who’s Not Asking For a Dime.

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. Darrell Jackson, has lingered with me. In that column I describe how the Black, South Carolina State Senator, who was also... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) As our worlds become increasingly more overrun with stress, albeit external or internal, it is no surprise that our waistlines have become the victim. Obesity and the problems associated with it are now at epidemic levels in the black community. According to the US Department of Health and Human services, non-Hispanic Black... [Read more...]

The State of Hip Hop.

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

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Time has brought about an immeasurable amount of change. In hip hop’s heyday, rap music was, without question, authentic and thorough; nowadays, people march to a different drum. It appears that only one vainglorious record is all that is required for an individual to be awarded a multi-million dollar recording contract. As... [Read more...]

Equal Pay for Women Helps Us All.

Filed under News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Could you use an additional $24,000 in your yearly wages? How about nearly $19,000? Or even just another $11,000 to $12,000? Those figures are what you get – or rather, what women who work full-time don’t get because of the pervasive “wage gap” between women and men. Correcting that injustice is one reason President Obama... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Major League Baseball’s home run king, Henry Louis “Hank” Aaron has just knocked another one out of the park.  But this time, Aaron wasn’t on a baseball diamond.  Aaron stood up boldly on the national stage and blasted a political homerun against Republicans who have made a sport of attacking President Obama.
