Thanksgiving In Context. Thanksgiving In Context.

(ThyBlackMan.com) The makeup of the United States population has changed over the centuries, and will continue to do so. But “a three way ethnic component was involved in the original basic ingredients of the formative American nation—white Englishmen, black Africans, and red Indians. The fact that nineteenth-century immigration added millions of white Europeans who were not of prime English stock,... [Read the full story]


Be True To What You Said On Paper.

(ThyBlackMan.com) Slavery made perfect sense, so too did Jim Crow in its time, as does mass incarceration today. If it did not, we would long ago have ended it. Why haven’t we? According to Norbert Wiener, we “live in a chaotic moral universe,” wherein “our main obligation is to establish arbitrary enclaves of order and system.” But what about justice? Wiener, Father of Cybernetics, the study... [Read the full story]


Najee Harris and the disgusting existence of homelessness. Najee Harris and the disgusting existence of homelessness.

(ThyBlackMan.com) “The curse of poverty has no justification in our age. It is socially as cruel and blind as the practice of cannibalism at the dawn of civilization, when men ate each other because they had not yet learned to take food from the soil or to consume the abundant animal life around them. The time has come for us to civilize ourselves by the total, direct and immediate abolition of poverty.”-From... [Read the full story]


For Dems, the Word Is ‘Transform’. For Dems, the Word Is ‘Transform’.

(ThyBlackMan.com) Remember when Joe Biden ran for president in what commentators called the “centrist” lane of the Democratic primaries? The idea was that a “moderate” like Biden, unlike rival Bernie Sanders, would not push radical plans to completely change American society. That would reassure non-progressive Democrats, and independents, too, that Biden would be a safe choice... [Read the full story]

What Does The Kyle Rittenhouse Acquittal Mean For Black Activists? What Does The Kyle Rittenhouse Acquittal Mean For Black Activists?

(ThyBlackMan.com) I am sure that not a single African-American with at least a cursory understanding of the history of American race relations was surprised by the recent acquittal of white teenaged killer Kyle Rittenhouse. This latest reiteration of America’s Native Son proved that he could kill two civilians during a moment of civil unrest in front of hundreds, a number that included several law... [Read the full story]

(ThyBlackMan.com) It is time America apologized for the crime of slavery, and President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. is the man to do it. It is hard to believe that a simple, national apology for the 400-year-old crime of kidnapping, trafficking, selling, and enslaving millions of free Black women, men, and children would even need to be debated. We pride ourselves as a moral nation, and our parents... [Read the full story]


Method to the GOP’s Assault on Kamala Harris. Method to the GOP’s Assault on Kamala Harris.

(ThyBlackMan.com) There is no other way to put it. The overwhelming majority of Americans think Vice President Kamala Harris is doing a lousy job as vice president. So poor, that her rating in a recent USA Today/Suffolk poll bottomed out at 28 percent approval. This was a historic low. No vice president and that included Bush’s controversial always under fire VP, Dick Cheney, had reached that historic... [Read the full story]

Trayvon Martin vs “Kid” Rittenhouse. Trayvon Martin vs “Kid” Rittenhouse.

(ThyBlackMan.com) Kyle Rittenhouse and Trayvon Martin were both the same age-17 years old. They both had some dings on their record. They both wound up in a much-watched courtroom drama. There are of course a couple of differences. Martin was Black and slain. His killer, George Zimmerman, was arrested, tried, and acquitted. Rittenhouse is white. Like Zimmerman, he was arrested for murder, and tried,... [Read the full story]

(ThyBlackMan.com) It is not often that I read news that leaves even me so dumbfounded that I need to fact check it.

(ThyBlackMan.com) My life path has taught me many uncertainties. What is uncertainty? Well, I am glad that you asked. In this context, uncertainty is something with pros and cons that is up for a rational debate. Experience has also taught me that rare issues are beyond dispute; such matters fall in the category of “I know this for certain.” Unfortunately for Black men, one of the things that I... [Read the full story]
