Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The 2017-18 NFL football season is barely a month old and already it has been swamped in controversy. The storm centers around language the President of the United States of America used when calling for league players “to be fired” for protesting during the national anthem. The president referred to these players as “sons... [Read more...]

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

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The NFL will never give up the national anthem salute. The NFL owners in one form or another will make it official when they meet to hammer out a policy on what players must do when the national anthem is played. Let’s be clear, the NFL’s Siamese Twin tie to the national anthem has nothing to do with the oft cited contention... [Read more...]

Listen Up, The American Flag Is Drenched in Black Blood.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I am not sure why the national anthem and the so-called American flag are part of our nation’s sports pageantry. Before 2009, while the national anthem was played, sports gladiators were not required to suit up, stand up, and put their hands to their hearts; and why should they? The song that is sung is an insult to people... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Black Athletes, like Colin Kaepernick and Michael Bennett, are more entitled to the symbols of the United States and what they symbolize than the current, race-baiting president. Colin Kaepernick is probably the most gifted quarterback in the NFL- with no team to call home- because he chose to kneel during the playing of the... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) One of the most violent and vile events in recent American history occurred in Las Vegas over the weekend, when a gunman perched high on the upper level of a Las Vegas Strip hotel shot a stream of bullets down on an outdoor country music festival below, killing over 50 people and leaving over 500 people injured as thousands... [Read more...]

Michael Jordan – My Thoughts.

Filed under News, Opinion, Sports, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I remember growing up as a kid, I would at times watch Michael Jordan entertain white people on the basketball court by dribbling a basketball in front of tens of thousands of white people. I have to admit that I was a fan of his when I was a kid because a lot of other young urban males at the time also used to look up to him. I... [Read more...]

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

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Let’s throw out a few numbers so we can put in perspective the NFL players taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem. Many say they are protesting against police treatment of blacks and racial discrimination. We might ask just how much sense their protest makes. According to The Washington Post, 737 people... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Does any American citizen have the right to peacefully protest? Hell yes, that is a fact, a right and the law. Protesting also includes freedom of speech, yet another right we are guaranteed. So it amazes me when people want to squash or criticize your right to protest. How dare they tell you when to do it and where? If they... [Read more...]

Fake Unity Won’t Heal the Nation.

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

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The country is divided. This is not something that just happened; the division of this country is as old as the nation itself. The problem is not necessarily a lack of conversation, nor narrative, but the lack of truth in the conversation. We cannot expect to find a way to foster a meaningful conversation regarding race and... [Read more...]

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

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Right now, we live in a country where emotions and social tension is running high. Every time we turn on the news, or tune in to social media we are seeing social unrest on so many levels. It is unfortunate that facts, and truth, are simply sidebars in conversations led by privilege, anger, confusion, and hurt. When the emotional... [Read more...]
