Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The crusading journalist, Ida B. Wells was born on July 16, 1862.   Although she made her mark as a journalist, she was also a social worker, advocate, feminist, and organization leader.  She too often gets short shrift in history, mainly because she did not go along to get along with the men of her era, crossing swords with... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I guess that the movement of school districts throughout the nation to begin scouring the nation for African-American males to populate their classrooms as teachers is at least a small admission that Black Male Teachers matter. Considering the historic resistance of any admission regarding the worth and utility of black men,... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) After a recent conversation with a male student who by all indications decided to turn his back on the extraordinary opportunities available to young black males, I could do little more than sigh and recite Napoleon Bonaparte’s infamous quote that “In this life, we are either kings or pawns, emperors or fools.” Let me... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Peter Strzok’s arrogance displayed at the Congressional Oversight Committee hearing on TV was infuriating. With their superior noses high in the air, Mr Strzok and the democrats behaviorally said f*** you to the Republicans, the law and We the People.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Today in the midst of the “Me Too” movement it is becoming increasingly dangerous for men – especially African American men.

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) American leftists cannot restrain themselves from throwing stink-bombs at all things wholesome and good. July 4th, my wife Mary read two articles in which black writers scolded blacks for celebrating Independence Day. They claim us blacks have nothing to celebrate because we were not free in 1776. Why are leftists so hellbent... [Read more...]

The Big Picture.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) What we are witnessing – the attacks on affirmative action, racial gerrymandering, voter suppression – is not an attempt at mere political realignment, but wholesale societal change. And to go nuts at each new outrage is to lose sight of the big picture. Affirmative Action: The most recent attacks on affirmative action in... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) “Here we go again!” A sad refrain but… In September 2016, race relations in America hit an all-time low when a white police officer in Tulsa, Oklahoma shot and killed Terence Crutcher. All at once, the ongoing issues with police shootings and race converged. Crutcher was an unarmed black man—his life cut short at only... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I’ve seen quite few things in this lifetime that give me pause for concern. The current administration is a disaster and embarrassment beyond anything I’ve ever seen. It seems in an effort to be different from their predecessors they are more of the same in the worst way. This administration clearly doesn’t care about... [Read more...]
