Filed under Ent., News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) When John Stewart steps down from the Daily show, he will create a void that will be incredibly difficult, if not impossible, to fill.  He is a Jew who does not mind criticizing Jewish leaders (can you say Benjamin Netanyahu?) when they are in the wrong.  While most of his targets are right wingers (they tend to be in the wrong)... [Read more...]

Fox “Empire” – Why I refuse to support Coonery.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) When the Fox Network released the new show, “Empire,” I was concerned about what I might see on screen. Fox is not known for producing the most favorable images of black people, so I figured this show wouldn’t be any different.  For some reason, black dysfunctionality makes for great television, and there is a long line... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Are Rap Fans Ruining Hip-Hop Music? I’ve been listening to Hip-Hop/Rap music for almost 20 years.  That’s longer than the average “rap consumer” today has been alive.  In that time I’ve seen the music transition through various stages into something that is of more controversy than ever before.  Instead of the unknowing... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) There are movies that inspire, there are movies that excite, there are movies that create an effect on multiple levels of human psychology, sociology and passions. Selma takes the viewer on a journey of emotional mixtures, psychological enlightenment and rationalization to the realities of how important voting rights are. The... [Read more...]

This is the perfect dysfunctional storm to get the tongues clucking again that Suge Knight, rappers, and by extension young black males are hopelessly ensnared in the thug life.

Movie; ‘Black or White’ Tackles a Touchy Subject.

January 29, 2015 by  
Filed under Ent., News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Race relations can be a touchy subject. Only a very perceptive filmmaker could tackle the topic and be remotely successful. It would require a writer/director to be smart, balanced, sensitive and able to see both sides of the issue. The characters would almost need to be extensions of our opinions and thoughts, so everyone has... [Read more...]
