Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) 1. Rwandan former refugees welcome the durable solution of local integration in Zambia. They have consistently refused the durable solution of repatriation to Rwanda for their “well-founded fear of persecution.” The offer of local integration shows the Zambian government is listening to Rwandan refugees and acknowledges... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Saida Grundy has started her academic career with a bang. Shortly after being hired by Boston University, the African American Studies professor set the campus on fire with a series of tweets that some found to be offensive, shocking and everything in-between.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I’m afraid a bit of the bloom has fallen off the rose regarding the Real Time With Bill Maher program. The recent appearance of D.L.Hugley notwithstanding, the program has become a tad too comfortable in discussing race minus any black folks.   A few episodes ago, Maher confronted a conservative guest with a challenge as... [Read more...]

Jesse Jackson article entitled “Now It Is Baltimore” written on April 28, 2015 in The Chicago Sun Times, I suggest that he and every other Old Black Leader should resign, because the current condition of Black African Americans is a direct result of their poor leadership.

Black Lives Matter.

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Before we examine the issue of police shootings of blacks, I would like to start the conversation with another question. Here it is: If a person chooses to stand on railroad tracks in the face of an oncoming train, who is responsible for his being run over? And if many people meet their maker this way, what would you recommend... [Read more...]

Ole Black Leadership Is On Trial In Baltimore.

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Last week I wrote about “Liberalism Being On Trial In Baltimore.”  In that column I talked about how all the leadership in Baltimore was Black, but yet they seem to blame all the issues surrounding Baltimore on racism and the Republican Party.  How can that be when the city is 63% Black and run by Blacks?

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) “I’m a Pepper, You’re a Pepper, She’s a Pepper, We’re a Pepper… Wouldn’t you like to be a Pepper, too? Be a Pepper – drink Dr. Pepper!” So went the famous Dr. Pepper TV commercial jingle from the late 1970’s. I was 10 years old when singer/actor David Naughton first sang that infectious hook. The fact that... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Dear Family and Friends, Though you have not confronted me or organized an intervention, I know many of you do not understand why I dislike Obama, vote Republican and joined the Tea Party. Y’all think, Obama is black, we’re black – so, what is my problem? Dad told me that grandmother, 101 years old when she passed,... [Read more...]

Liberalism is on Trial in Baltimore.

May 4, 2015 by  
Filed under Business, Money, News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Baltimore and Ferguson, symbolically represent the failure of liberalism throughout the U.S.  Liberalism has been weighed in the balances and has been found wanting.  Liberalism has been tried in the court of public opinion and now it’s time for its public sentencing. As I am fond of saying, when all is said and done, there’s... [Read more...]
