Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Kudos to Roland Martin, the pioneering journalist who has taken his departure from TV One and turned it into a digital platform.  He’ll be back with a daily program, but he’ll be online instead of traditional media.  He has financing from AFSCME, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees,... [Read more...]

Supposedly, Only Uncle Tom Celebrating July 4th.

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...]

Democrats Get Their Wake Up Call!

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I’ve never met Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year old New York activist, but I am surely looking forward to it.  This giant-slayer of an organizer (she worked for Senator Bernie Sanders during the 2016 campaign) was out-spent, but certainly not out-worked, by her opponent, Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-NY). Crowley had served in... [Read more...]

How A Stringent School Curriculum Has Made Many Black Educators Modern-Day Minstrels.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) It is always strange and often amusing to witness the shock of others at things that have been everpresent in not only their lives but also the lives of everyone they know. This somewhat funny problem occurs every time I lecture in front of any segment of the black community. Without fail, the issue that raises this matter to... [Read more...]

Mitch McConnell, Obama & Next Scotus Pick.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I’ve got great news for pro-choice feminists like Whoopi Goldberg. Supreme Court justices don’t perform enemas or abortions, they simply interpret law. Sadly, when you rely on your values, morals, and worth to be affirmed by feelings, like-minded peers, and government regulation rather than by God and objective truth, it’s... [Read more...]

America’s Freedom, The Fourth Of July Celebration.

July 4, 2018 by  
Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Today America dominates the globe. It’s easy to forget that the United States almost didn’t exist. In 1776 a rag-tag group of British colonists met in Philadelphia. Resistance to British exactions had begun more than a decade before. Armed resistance broke out the previous year. Angry over British restrictions on their liberties... [Read more...]

The Literati: Resistance Was Born on the Fourth of July.

Filed under News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) In 1852, Frederick Douglas posed a question that reverberates to this day: What, to the slave, is your Fourth of July? Some thirteen years later, President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, freeing the 3.5 million southern slaves. As a result, according to When the Fourth of July Was a Black Holiday, an article... [Read more...]
