Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I heard a child the other day ask his mother why Donald Duck comes out of the shower with a towel on? “Ducks live in the water. Why do they need showers?” she asked. I thought it was insightful, and funny, that a little kid who couldn’t have been more than 7 years old would be sharp enough to ask a question like that.  Likewise... [Read more...]

Consciously choosing a black woman.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I used to cringe every time I heard a black woman cry about a black man they saw with someone from a different ethnic group. It used to literally make me nauseas because, to me, it assumed that just because people have the same outside wrapping means that they’re automatically supposed to be a match. The simplicity of such... [Read more...]

“The Untouchables”; Starring Black Women.

Filed under News, Opinion, Relationships, Sista Talk, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) One of the definitions of untouchable is: beyond criticism, control, or suspicion. As Black Women we have a tendency to think that we are beyond criticism, and when we are justifiably criticized we scream that we are being attacked, but have no problem verbally attacking Black Men, and because the Black Woman is so rebellious... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) It’s funny that so many people like to proclaim, “Everything is not about race,” when it comes to a Black person being blatantly disrespected and/or victimized by someone who is not Black…especially a child. From Trayvon Martin to the recent trial and sentencing for the slain Jordan Davis, we have witnessed America ignorantly... [Read more...]

I Didn’t Know Black People Like You Existed.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I saw two old friends last night (husband and wife) for the first time in six years. I knew “the Mrs” long before she met her husband, and I’ve had a chance to watch each of them evolve from their early days to become the people that they are right now. The couple got married a decade ago and have a great house with three... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Lupita Nyong’o, Oscar’s 2014 Best Supporting Actress is a role-model extraordinaire. She is beautiful, exciting to watch and represents a woman who is confident in her skin. I recently described her as ‘beauty from head to toe.” For many of us, Lupita appeared from nowhere to master her first major movie role as Patsy in... [Read more...]

Who Will Take This Woman?

Filed under News, Opinion, Relationships, Sista Talk, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) A couple of months ago,  I saw a picture that really disturbed me. It was a picture of a Sister that had a tattoo on her chest, and the tattoo was that of a specific part of the male anatomy and she boasted about a certain “skill set.” I thought to myself, how did the state of the Black Woman get to this? I reflected back... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Is Black Manhood Slowly Being Redefined Right Up Under Our Noses? …….or am I just some kind of romantic relic of a long gone time stuck in the past that will never ever return again? Or maybe I’m right on point with my observation speaking for those who are afraid to because they just might lose their positions on a job... [Read more...]

Women & Body Image: Embrace Your Queendom!

February 25, 2014 by  
Filed under News, Opinion, Relationships, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Our culture is obsessed with beauty. While some women are purchasing an ethnic standard of beauty with fuller lips, larger eyes, and round, full butts; others are running toward the euro-culture standard of long hair, skin lightening, and fat removal.  As women, we cannot afford to fall for standards of beauty defined in Cosmo. ... [Read more...]

Ten Faults Lethal to Your Love Life.

Filed under News, Opinion, Relationships, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Relationships often collapse because couples are not prepared to withstand the inevitable conflicts or even the humdrum and monotonous plateau period that’s nearly certain to present as the years go by.  A relationship can feel more like “boot camp” when trying to acclimate to each other’s personality differences and... [Read more...]
