Mr. President, you are my man. As my mother used to say, you are my “Ace Boon Coon” among active politicians, a phrase it took me years to understand meant “number one negro”. Which means, if we are boys and all, at least metaphorically speaking, then I am obligated,/…

President Obama surprised the nation when he surfaced Sunday in Afghanistan after a whirlwind week in which he signed his health care reform initiative into law. While the Sunday morning political talk shows mostly played "Monda… Read full post »
It looks like Blacksheep Political Consulting will have to quit living off the money it defrauded its last paying clients out of by guaranteeing to deliver the Vietnamese immigrant vote for Congressman Roscoe P. Coltrane (RR-GA) and come out of semi-retirement to give the beleaguered Re
Black History Month is almost over.
I really haven't done anything special at my blog Brown Man Thinking Hard to commemorate it, probably because this blog is written from an African American perspective.
But my editor… Read full post »
I spent way too much time last week poring over the numbers of the Congressional Black Caucus and its affiliated charities. But in trying to give the story more context than the Two Erics who wrote the article for the New York Times were able to muster, I did/…
The Brown Man is back on Youtube.
The blog post I re-posted from July last week, titled "Racial Discrimination: The Reality Show" has joined the rest of my recent pieces on the Brown Man Thinking Hard channel on YouTube.
Perspective is one of the items that is missing from the… Read full post »
I'll be back to politics in the morning -- right now, I will have to say that the verdict on The Michael Vick Project documentary is, "it's all good."
Someone sent me a review of the show that was in the Washington Post earlier today. Now I see why/…
Kris Broughton is on Youtube.
The blog post I wrote yesterday titled "Supreme Court Brings Frankenstein To Life" was supposed to go "straight to video", as they say in the movie business, but it is a lot of work to write and put together one of these in… Read full post »
"Blowing Smoke with Brown Man Thinking Hard" is my first video. The Microsoft Moviemaker software that came with my computer took a little getting used to, but after an hour or so I think I got the hang of it. The blog post I wrote last week titled "Media… Read full post »
...the smell of burnt gunpowder and wet cotton, the taste of cold fried chicken and cheap lipstick, the sounds of grown men weeping, of heavy wood hitting dark flesh, of rifles cocking and dogs snarling, tired bodies jumbled together in church buses and auto caravans, always dressed in their… Read full post »
I usually have a healthy respect for the people who make the decisions at GOP Central, but bringing up the Trent Lott situation to discredit Harry Reid has got to be about the dumbest damn move I've seen them make in a while. Why would you bring… Read full post »
I was in the kitchen, listening to some TV announcer drone on in the background about new airport security screening guidelines, when it hit me.
MY first name is Arabic.
I've used a shortened version of my middle name for so long I didn't even think about my first name until I'd/…
I was tooling around the internet yesterday, when I happened onto a site I visit several times a week whose latest blog post was titled "How Obama Lost My Support, And How He Can Regain It". It stung me so hard I went on a profane rant, which you can read… Read full post »
I was talking to my brother last night when it hit me - what Jim DeMint really wants to do is hire illegal immigrants to work at TSA.
There is no other explanation. As a self proclaimed patriot and proud teabagger, DeMint doesn't want government telling people what to do. He/…
Why do we even give a damn about our news people and the stuff they report?
When you interview people like Jim DeMinted, who is liable to say any damn thing he pleases in front of a camera, you shouldn't even have to work at it - a quick tour through the/…
In the maze of your post-Christmas high triglyceride haze, you probably would have put the terrorist attempt on the back burner if it weren't for the relentless repetition of the same three pieces of news on your TV all weekend about the Nigerian national who tried to blow up the plane… Read full post »
I was just tooling around the internet for a few minutes, looking for another topic to write about after discovering that my all but posted piece on the Citibank's 38 billion dollar tax credit had come to the wrong conclusion, when I hit one of my daily stops,… Read full post »
The entertainment TV executives around the world are rubbing their hands together like Bishop Magic Don Juan. The paparazzi are high fiving each other all over the world - "fo shizzle, Tizzle's bizzles brangin' big dizzles" - and somewhere deep in the heart of the internet, engineers for Googl/…
EVERYBODY has a book these days.
Sarah Palin, the Quitta from Wasilla, has somehow written a book.
Henry Louis Gates, the Most Famous Black Professor in America, probably has ANOTHER book by now.
Even Carrie Prejean, the Ex-Beauty Queen, has a book about her recent struggles.

The first time I saw this video, I was not surprised at all.
What I wanted to know was where the directive came from that had all of these voices repeating the same type of phrases over and over, as if by the sheer force of their vocal… Read full post »
I joined a panel yesterday on "World Have Your Say", a BBC Radio show that focuses on hot topics from around the world, to try to answer the question "if it’s not racism, why do some Americans hate President Obama so much?"
The online article touting yesterday's show actually featured a l/…
It just so happens that I was on the phone yesterday with a staffer from www.RedBrownandBlue.com, asking her about the reception they'd gotten from the black bloggers they'd reached out to recently as they launched their publication - we ended up talking about some of the very same attitudes t… Read full post »
