Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I appreciate Dr. Boyce presenting this article, and welcoming conversation to delve into the layer of white supremacy racism which his point envelopes. In my opinion, this is indeed an argument that needs light shed on it in order to bring about healing and change. Dr. Boyce posed the question of black men playing the role, or... [Read more...]

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Sports, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) ESPN host Stephen A. Smith has gotten quite a reputation for being a controversial tell-it-like-he-sees-it guy. That’s fine in sports punditry.

Filed under Business, Money, News, Opinion, Sports, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The protest slogans relative to our latest struggle for justice and equity compel me to come up with a new phrase. The signs and T-Shirts emblazoned with “I Can’t Breathe!” “No Justice, No Peace!” and the latest, “Black Lives Matter,” carry connotations related to action. I often wonder what the folks who wear the... [Read more...]
