Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I must admit the loss of life is very disturbing to my soul. Our children are being buried at a rapid rate; no one can predict the future, so we never know what could have come of them. I’m the first to admit, outside of a handful of artists, I couldn’t tell you who is new on the Hip-Hop scene. The direction of many of the... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Let me begin by saying I am Not a Cosby apologist. As a woman that is a sexual assault survivor his actions were deplorable and he victims deserve justice.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I’m not one to dive into what I call “Super Fandom”. I don’t love any celebrity to the point of worship, and if we differ on music that’s cool too. Music, like art and literature, is very subjective. What moves on of us won’t make another budge at all. I don’t agree with fans of any artist that would shame another... [Read more...]

When you internally question yourself regarding the death of said parent like you are on trial there is always something found that you could... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) “When you hear about slavery for 400 years … For 400 years? That sounds like a choice.” Let’s see. The first enslaved Africans were brought to what later became the United States in 1619. Add 400 years to 1619 and that brings us to 2019. Are we still not enslaved? If the police can shoot a Black man 50 times... [Read more...]
