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

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) All of social media is abuzz with the free fall of CeeLo Green. Even those of us who watched his slow and calculated rise from Goodie Mob to Gnarls Barkley to premiere judge on NBC’s The Voice find ourselves “sharing” and “liking” the carnage.  The only thing a fan loves more than the rise of a... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Remember when the federal government restricted tobacco companies from marketing to children?  They did this because they know that marketing can modify behavior and they didn’t want young people to be influenced to engage in unhealthy activity.  Well, what happens when you are marketing mass murder to teenagers?  Should... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The horrific murder of nine-year-old Antonio Smith in Chicago sometime last week, weighed heavy on my mind.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) We’ve all witnessed the sad sceen before: once spry and energetic rappers who have overstayed their welcome to the genre and now, well, they’re just old.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I have read a lot of commentary about Beyonce’s performance at the MTV’s Video Music awards which aired last night(August 24, 2014).  Beyonce is NOT a good role model for our young girls. Over the years her lyrics have gotten more vulgar and her performances have become more salacious. Last night, during her performance,... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I want to start by saying that I’m not sure if I like the rapper 50 Cent (aka Curtis Jackson).  As brilliant as he happens to be, “Fiddy” appears to be plagued by a set of psychological challenges that cause him to seek attention at all costs and to push his “beefs” to the highest levels.  I can’t really think of... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) So social media is buzzing since release of the latest video from Nasty Nicki. She’s like the whorish pied piper just leading our girls towards a life of whoredom. The video is NOTHING but filth and a parade of Black Women shaking their behinds, with vulgar lyrics in the background. Between Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda”... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I wanted to speak on a matter that has been argued among blacks for generations , and that is the hypocritical argument of ” Unity “. As we know there are those blacks that get in public for the sake of appearance and argue that there should be more black unity. But behind the scenes their thoughts and actions are... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) By 1986, the noted King of Pop, Michael Jackson was fresh off of the release of two commercial and critically acclaimed albums and enjoying his life as a global icon minus the rumors that were spreading about his personal life.
