Filed under Ent., News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) They tell me that in order to make it in Hollywood you have to first sit on the casting couch.

Filed under Ent., News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Due to their interesting choices in programming, VH1 might be better referred to as “The Evil Empire.”  Their endless stream of reality TV shows tend to focus on taking otherwise irrelevant black people and making them as  recognizable as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr (I’m serious:  There are black kids who could identify... [Read more...]

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I am writing to satisfy one issue, and that is why do folk take up for these political plutocrats regardless of political affiliation?

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) “IF YE WERE ABRAHAM’S CHILDREN, YE WOULD DO THE WORKS OF ABRAHAM” Every since I wrote the column “Crabs in a Barrel,” the gross hypocrisy of South Carolina State Senator, Rev.
