What kind of foolish hater are you?

What kind of foolish hater are you?

Unfortunately, many children at one time or another say they hate one or both of their parents. This behavior is unacceptable. But it’s understandable for toddlers, adolescents and even immature teenagers. Maybe Mama told you not to eat cookies and candy and preferred that you ate fruits and vegetables. Perhaps Daddy told you to be […]

Random thoughts of a free Black mind, v. 295

Random thoughts of a free Black mind, v. 295

Bill O’Reilly is no longer a ‘Factor’ – It was about the money, not the sexual harassment charges.  Fox did cost-benefit analysis and dumped O’Reilly when advertisers dumped his show, a contagion that could spread to the network. Which brings me to… Florida legislative apologies and ‘beg-pardons’– Don’t let that Florida sunshine and the smell […]

Trump joins Democrats in the ‘War Party’

Trump joins Democrats in the ‘War Party’

In 2016, Donald Trump turned the political world upside down, and not just because his victory prevailed against conventional wisdom. Trump claimed to want a new direction in foreign policy. Gone would be the trade deals that sent American workers on a race to an endless bottom. He said that he wanted a new relationship […]

Trump’s avoidance of Black Press reveals tense relations

Trump’s avoidance of Black Press reveals tense relations

PAUL DELANEY GUEST COMMENTARY At the very beginning of the new administration, and probably in a moment of hubris, Omarosa Manigault, an aide to President Donald Trump, promised that the first newspaper interview with the new president would go to a member of the Black press.

Black Lives Matter revives toxic ‘Black capitalism’ myths

Black Lives Matter revives toxic ‘Black capitalism’ myths

There’s a box of odious and discredited myths that hold that African-Americans have less wealth and higher rates of poverty, joblessness and other negative social indicators because we ain’t thrifty, because we don’t save and invest like some other folks, because we don’t spend our cash with Black businesses, and we just do not properly […]

A misguided celebration of the MOAB

A misguided celebration of the MOAB

Last week, the US military dropped the largest bomb in combat since it dropped a nuclear bomb on Nagasaki during World War II. This explosion had the American media in post-coital delirium. According to CNN, “The GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb, or MOAB, was dropped…on a network of fortified underground tunnels that ISIS had […]

Keep your eyes open as America prepares for war

Keep your eyes open as America prepares for war

One of the greatest signs that there is a chance of a war is the preparation for a war! Historically, when Western or other nations want to invade, attack or colonize a nation that is less formidable than they are, a military war is preceded by a war of words. Africa, it was said, needed […]

MLK and Obama: Two diametrically opposed legacies

MLK and Obama: Two diametrically opposed legacies

Editor’s note – The following is an edited version of remarks delivered by Glen Ford at a panel discussion on April 3 organized by World Beyond War at New York University. When we invoke the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., it is usually in the context of “civil rights” and “human rights.” Today, it […]

Decision to bomb Syria was dangerous, deceptive

Decision to bomb Syria was dangerous, deceptive

Fifty-nine cruise missiles. When Donald Trump ordered the attack on Syria, he made an impetuous decision, turning his previous commitment to stay out of the Syrian civil war and focus on ISIS on its head. He ordered the attack on a sovereign nation without seeking sanction from the United Nations or the US Congress. For […]
