Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) In the theoretical practices of both games and economics, the term zero-sum is used to describe the mathematical representation of a situation in which a participant’s gain (or loss) of utility is exactly balanced by the losses (or gains) of the utility of all other participants.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I’ve been racking my brain for years trying to figure out why black entertainers are expected to be great role models and leaders. It’s interesting that only within the black community does one who seeks “success” owe something back to the black community. I often wonder where this notion of a community being owed anything,... [Read more...]

Enough With The Ferguson Pandering.

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) In all the media coverage of the riots in Ferguson, an annoying false premise has been allowed to stand as though it were an unquestionable truth. Talking heads on the left and right are saying while rioting is not the way, there is a need for change in America. What the heck change are they talking about?

Media Should Treat Ex-D.C. Mayor Marion Barry Like it Treats Bill Clinton.

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Last week, civil rights leader and political icon Marion Barry died and barely after he had taken his last breath, the media was besmirching his reputation. Marion Barry was a “true” civil rights icon, not one “appointed” by the media.  A “true” icon or leader should be like a candle; the more light he gives the... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) That is right! Sounds incredible, does it not? What is suggested here is that the two major political parties are literally working together when it comes to the immigration issue. The end justifies the means, as the old saying goes. What is going on in Washington D.C. is nothing more than theatrics being played out on a national... [Read more...]

November 24, 2014 by  
Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I despise politicians!! They are normally rich ,self-absorbed jerks with no connection to the people the serve. With the only interaction between the two being when they solicit their constituents for votes, only later to slither back in the pocket of big business and big media to do their bidding. Very few times do you find... [Read more...]
