Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Once, during a meeting with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump inside Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York, we discussed energy policy. I told Trump that if we went all out to produce America’s abundant supply of oil, gas and coal, the United States could be energy independent in four years. Trump looked at me... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) When I spoke at John Lewis’ memorial service two years ago, I emphasized a truth John knew better than just about anyone. Our democracy isn’t a given. It isn’t self-executing. We, as citizens, have to nurture and tend it. We have to work at it. And in that task, we have to vigilantly preserve and protect our most basic... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Due to its potential abundance of antioxidants, African black soap is regarded as a skin-nourishing product. Ashes from plantain skin, cocoa pods, palm leaves, and palm oil from leaves or kernels are commonly used to make soap.  Depending on the manufacturer, additional ingredients may include honey or shea butter to soften... [Read more...]

Corporate Journalists Are Blind to a Big COVID Lesson.

Filed under Business, Health, Money, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) One of my complaints about mainstream media is that they recruit reporters from inside the establishment: Ivy League colleges, expensive graduate journalism programs, rival outlets with similar hiring practices. Some staffs develop admirable levels of gender and racial diversity. But they all come from the same elite class. Rich... [Read more...]

Conservatives, If You Are Going to Talk to the Black Community, You Need to Have Something Truly Conservative to Say.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Grandma used to say, “Boy, your actions speak so loud I can’t hear a damn thing you are saying!” This sums up perfectly the Republican Party and conservative’s relationship with the black community. Republicans have a great story to tell relative to the black community, but their actions drown out the message. Show me... [Read more...]

My Best Wishes for 2022.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Most of these are the same wishes that I advocated for in a column for the year 1993. They are as relevant today as they were then: • That we realize that contrary to popular belief, we are not a weak people. In fact, we have many strengths that can be the foundation for a powerful and productive group. We need to concentrate... [Read more...]

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

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Who would’ve thought a ludicrous idea dubbed as the “Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) Movement” thought up by anti-Israel and antisemitic extremists would yield an acronym that so rightly describes how America should deal with Communist China? But it was here, amid their world of chronic hysteria and faux outrage over... [Read more...]

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

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The nation’s capital, one would think, would be the freest in our Constitutional Republic. That assumes, of course, the Constitution is what elected leaders uphold. As we’ve seen throughout the scamdemic, it’s not the Law of the Land that’s held high but fear and control. “The COVID-19 pandemic, including the exponential... [Read more...]

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

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Friday’s jobs report from the Department of Labor was a warning sign about the US economy. It should cause widespread concern about the Fed’s plans to raise interest rates to control inflation. And it should cause policymakers to rethink ending government supports such as extended unemployment insurance and the child tax... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) With a large number of guests and visitors checking in and out of your hotel, managing the security of your organization can be a challenging process.
