Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Certain people are sure to be angered by this Op-Ed piece. So let’s begin. My Republican brothers and sisters are extremely passionate about their pro-life beliefs. I do not question the depth of their conviction. I do not question their methodology. Today’s column isn’t at all about how American conservatives feel about... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) A caller on the Carl Nelson Show (WOL 1450AM – Washington, D.C.), at least each time I have heard him, talks about reparations and freedom. He called again when I was Carl’s guest on July 16, 2014. The caller’s passion, concern, anger, urgency, and frustration were all woven into his comments. I could not help but empathize... [Read more...]

Charity Begins at Home.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Americans have lost their minds. Forgive me for not expending any of my emotional energy or shedding any tears for those illegals coming into America. No, I can’t get all wrapped up in the plight of all the illegal children whose derelict parents are sending them thousands of miles on a dangerous journey alone. I can’t help... [Read more...]

American-Israeli Politics: Where Bullying is Called Self-Defense.

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) “And I stand shoulder to shoulder with Israel as it defends itself against this shocking violence.” Senator Cory Booker “Israel is entitled to take the steps necessary to protect itself from destructive rocket attacks from Hamas that are aimed at all Israeli civilians, regardless of their religion,” said Senator Charles... [Read more...]

Politics: I Dare You: Trade Places.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Actress Bridget Moynahan is currently living on a $1.50 a day diet. Why would such a talented, accomplished, and successful celebrity would do such a thing? I’m glad you asked. She’s doing this for the simplest of reasons: to call attention to poverty here in America. If only our Democratic and Republican Senators, Congressmen,... [Read more...]

Divide and Rule, Immigration, and Ethnic Conflict.

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Aside from historical revisionism, the favorite tactic of white supremacists and white imperialists is divide and rule. Nothing makes white supremacists more eupeptic than pitting ethnic and racial groups against each other in order to effortlessly control them and maintain social power. In colonial Africa, divide and rule was... [Read more...]

The New Sundown Towns and Racism in Modern America.

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Sundown towns are not part of Americans’ discourse on race relations, despite the fact that they form a foundational aspect of it. It seems that our linear, historical narrative of American history has confined “racism in America” to the deep South and the years of Jim Crow laws. In short, we have come to think that racism... [Read more...]

Nothing Essential About Essence Magazine.

July 15, 2014 by  
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.

July 14, 2014 by  
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.

July 13, 2014 by  
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...]
