Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) They say the Devil’s greatest trick is to make people think he doesn’t exist. The media’s biggest scam has been to make us forget that in the Oval Office, right now, a Black man sits. Remember the hope and joy that flooded us all, not just African Americans, but all Americans who voted for him, and even many who did not,... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Score one BIG for Obama on the birther issue. In releasing his birth certificate. Obama not only magnified the “silliness” of the matter but the racism associated with it. Short form, long form, and all the rest, the president given enough proof of his citizenship. Let’s be very clear: if President Obama wasn’t black,... [Read more...]

Filed under News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I recently read about historian and scholar Manning Marable passing away, just days before the publication of his controversial book, “Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention.” The book has ignited a firestorm of commentary, which is not surprising. The coverage took me back to when I was a teenager in New York in the 1960s... [Read more...]

Why Did God Create Satan Knowing What He Would Do?

Filed under Christian Talk, News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) As a pastor, I get asked, quite often actually, why God created a devil if He knew all the evil Satan would do. A corresponding question is why did God create the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil? After all, if God hadn’t created the tree, then Adam and Eve couldn’t have sinned! This article attempts to give... [Read more...]

How One Parent Undermines the Other Parent…

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Much of the time one parent does not realize what they are doing. The effect on the kids is unnoticed. It is usually experienced by the child as stress, tension, anxiety, guilt and depression. Kids may act out or hide it. Parents usually justify it.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) When Donald Trump began to make public overtures about his possible interest in running for president of the U.S., I thought he could be a substantive wild card in the race. I thought Trump could be a viable candidate because he does have a successful track record as a businessman.  During next year’s presidential campaign,... [Read more...]

Filed under News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) If there were ever a human being who best embodied the words “What would Jesus do?” it would be Father Michael Pfleger out of Chicago.  Father Pfleger has put it on the line for 30 years as the head of the St. Sabina Roman Catholic Church in the south side of Chicago.  The church is predominantly black, but Father Pfleger... [Read more...]
