Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I got a call today from CNN to discuss the new initiative launched by the White House called “My brother’s keeper.”  From what I’d gathered, the program is one that is designed to create opportunities for men of color, which I certainly appreciate.  I’ll admit that while I agree with the sentiment behind the program,... [Read more...]

Filed under News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) In the years after enslavement, Southern Whites did all they could to return to a manner of slavery.  No White “owned” a Black person, but many Whites behaved as if they did.  Theoretically, Blacks were free to come and go as they pleased, but if they went to the wrong store, sat in the wrong part of the bus, or failed... [Read more...]

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) One of the easiest ways to keep black people enslaved in America is by enslaving our minds.   Barred from an adequate education or true sense of history, many of us are wired to love our oppressors more than we love ourselves.  Even during Black History Month, you’re quite likely to hear us celebrating assimilation far more... [Read more...]
