Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) At the risk of being accused of repeating myself, I will say once again that Black people who live in the continent of North America (aka USA) continue to recognize the importance of maximizing their economic potential. In 2018, as in the previous 100 or so years, we as a people put most all of our time, energy, and resources... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) This government shutdown is now longer than any in history. The media keep using the word “crisis.” “Shutdown sows chaos, confusion and anxiety!” says The Washington Post. “Pain spreads widely.” The New York Times headlined, it’s all “just too much!” But wait. Looking around... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Here are a couple of easy immigration questions — answerable with a simple “yes” or “no” — we might ask any American of any political stripe: Does everyone in the world have a right to live in the U.S.?

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) In 2006, the Secure Fence Act, supported by Senators Obama, Clinton, and Schumer along with 23 other Democrats, was passed. Congress supported a border wall under Presidents Clinton and Bush. So the only answer as to why Democrats balk at supporting President Trump’s funding request is politics. The National Border Patrol... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) “If ignorance is bliss, Then wise men are fools.” It is in vogue today to disparage expertise.  The word “elite” has become an epithet to be hurled at anyone who displays any degree of knowledge about a subject.  Take climate change, for instance.  While most scientists back the notion that the earth is warming and... [Read more...]

Mitt Romney vs Donald Trump, What’s the Deal?

January 13, 2019 by  
Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Mitt Romney’s opening salvo directed at President Trump was a pathetic attempt to impeach the accomplishments and agenda of the president. The fact that Romney attacked President Trump reveals more about the oleaginous mouse of a person he is than it hurt the president. Mitt Romney’s remarks were morally opprobrious and... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) When an individual litigates against another individual or an organization for damages, one of the first things attorneys for the defendant(s) will do is determine the plaintiff’s need for capital. If the plaintiff is flush, it tends to negate the perception and likelihood that he’s in it for the money, whereas many a frivolous... [Read more...]

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

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Behind the Wall is a term referencing the towering cement wall that encircles most, if not all, maximum security prisons. This soulless wall blinds millions of men/women from viewing the outside world, from seeing families and friends. This heartless structure says nothing; but his mere presence produces fears and anxieties.... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The 116th Congress, sworn in on January 3, is the most diverse our nation has ever seen.  There are more women – 102 – than ever before.  More members of the Congressional Black Caucus – 55 – than ever before.  Indeed, a former Congressional Black Caucus intern, Lauren Underwood (D-IL) is part of the incoming first-year... [Read more...]

We Can’t Grow if We Can’t Teach.

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The phrase that pays these days is politically correct. We live in a time whereby everything is a sensitive matter and any point made can be used as a trigger. I am completely sensitive to mental health issues; however, I don’t feel like the language of such should be misused. If we address negative behavior we are shaming... [Read more...]
