Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) With this Article I want to address the nation-wide seriousness of the Dead Beat Father Syndrome. This is a sickness that has destroyed generation after generation of young girls without any justice being given to these children. And yes it affects young boys as well, but boys have a stronger tolerance for pain than girls.... [Read more...]

Anti-Effeminacy in the Black Community.

Filed under News, Opinion, Relationships, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Words like sissy and f** can often be heard in the black community to describe a man who falls outside the comparatively restrictive confounds of black male masculinity.  However, why black men in particular focus on masculinity more than their other racial counterparts is often misunderstood.  Two theories seek to explain... [Read more...]

Fathers Day and A Fathers Accountability.

Filed under News, Relationships, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Fathers are important to their children; they define the relationships their children will have in life. The world renowned scholar, and African American activist, Malcolm X, notes; any man can make a baby with a woman, but a father is responsible for the growth and development of HIS children. There will be many events this... [Read more...]

Good Fathers Still Matter!

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Fathers’ Day is probably one of the less celebrated holidays because of the pandemic impact of fatherlessness in our society. In fact, most churches will pontificate a strong thunderous message about fathers who do not father and overlook the faithfulness of the men who understand the role of a father in the lives of their... [Read more...]

Single, successful Black woman, where art thou?

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.

April 5, 2014 by  
Filed under Brother Talk, News, Opinion, Relationships, Weekly Columns

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.

March 31, 2014 by  
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...]

Annie Remake: Everything Is Not About Race.

March 12, 2014 by  
Filed under Ent., News, Opinion, Relationships, Weekly Columns

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.

March 8, 2014 by  
Filed under News, Opinion, Relationships, Weekly Columns

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...]

March 6, 2014 by  
Filed under News, Opinion, Relationships, Sista Talk, Weekly Columns

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...]
