Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I’m not writing this article to defend sexual predators like R. Kelly because I have a deep seated hatred for sexual predators especially those in our community like R. Kelly.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) When provided the benefit of hindsight, so many things become absurdly ironic. One of the most ironic items is my beloved mother’s constant refrain that there were some crimes that Black people did not commit; it actually became a running joke between us. When a crime was reported on a news station, my mother would shout from... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) A loyal reader recently sent me a communication suggesting an article that addressed “Why African-Americans hate Kenny G so much.” In all honesty, the communication made me laugh aloud.
