Filed under Health, News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) FDA commissioner Margaret Hamburg states, “every year approximately 50,000 U.S. adults and adolescents are diagnosed with HIV.”  Contrary to popular belief, HIV still remains an epidemic within the US, and while the ability to treat the disease has increased with time, there is still no cure.  This has led to the desire... [Read more...]

Nothing Essential About Essence Magazine.

Filed under Ent., News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I wrote a column three years ago titled, “Black Women No Longer Have Their Essence.” My point was that Essence, the pre-eminent magazine for Black women, had become irrelevant and an embarrassment to the Black community. Unfortunately, Essence has continued its decent into irrelevancy. For 20 years, Essence has sponsored... [Read more...]

The False Gaza Narrative and the Dwight Howard/Coward Story.

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

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Used to be a time that African American athletes had character, integrity and stood on what was right more than how much they were paid.  This was also the period of intrepid investigative journalism.  Now, both have gone the way of extinction as it was with the dinosaurs at the close of the Mesozoic Era. Men such as Muhammad... [Read more...]

America, the Bullied.

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Perhaps it is because as a child, I witnessed Zaggy torturing chubby Butterball every morning at the school bus stop. Consequently, I have an extremely low tolerance for Leftists bullying Americans into submission and getting away with it. Fear caused Butterball to endure daily humiliating facial slaps, punches and extortion... [Read more...]

Filed under Health, News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) We can spend so much of our energy pushing uphill against what is. You may wonder, “What is ‘what is’?” What is, is reality. It is the inevitable; it is the situation that you wish were not in existence. It is the fact that: You would prefer it if someone else was your boss … you wish that bad habit... [Read more...]

Why I love Iggy Azalea.

Filed under Ent., Music, News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I love Iggy Azalea. I think what she’s doing is brilliant. She has taken the rap industry and turned it on its head by coming out with a song, err rap, which highlights her ability to sound like a drowning kitten WHILE racking up over 135 million views on YouTube. That’s right, 135 MILLION YouTube views. You do the math.... [Read more...]

I.O.U.: Iraq, Obama and Ukraine.

July 10, 2014 by  
Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) President Obama’s team of national security advisers have a few bad poker hands they are in the process of playing. The first regards all the trillions they have spent on National Security and the NSA yet not foreseeing the collapse and routing of the U.S.trained Iraq Army forces by Sunni jihadists, and second, the blind eye... [Read more...]

Poll-arity.

July 8, 2014 by  
Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I have a simple question for you. If you stumbled across a poll in a newspaper that concluded that Ronald Reagan was the worst American President in the last 70 years, would you believe it? Of course not. Your reaction to such a poll would be the same as mine. I would immediately dismiss it and laugh as I promptly deposited that... [Read more...]

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) My fellow Americans, we are all bit players in the making of a metaphoric slasher movie, “Obama Unchained” starring Barack Hussein Obama. Here is a summary of the movie. It is a heartwarming tale about how the mainstream media and Democratic Party suckered America into electing their extreme far-left dream president; a Trojan... [Read more...]
