Summer Was Cold Winter Was Colder

My political philosophy, in case I haven’t been clear, is called Cahillism. It was passed on to me by the late, great, acutely missed, Jim Crow educated political philosopher,  Louise Cahill – my mother.  The watershed political science lesson was commenced and ended while waiting at a red light in a late model white Toyota […]

Change For A Dollar

I’ll tell you how I met my wife.  It was during one of my many years in college; either year five or six of my four year degree. I had been discovered as having Wrong Thoughts by the Official Black Students and everywhere I went on campus people turned their heads and eyed me like […]

Sincerely Yours

All it took for the Klan to gain acclamation for burning down black businesses was to do it while wearing black t-shirts emblazoned with Black Lives Matter.  All the Kluxers needed to do to gain state protection was declare themselves anti-racists (Antira?). They’d have run out of black people to lynch by now if they […]

The Life You Save May Be Your Own

If your mind hadn’t been turned into tapioca by social media I wouldn’t have to tell you this but here we are:  Stop asking “Where is BLM?”  or  “Where is Al Sharpton?” whenever some unfortunate black person is gunned down on a ghetto street (I notice no one ever asks “Where is Jesse Jackson?” anymore […]

Walking Back

Out of its stunted and squalid existence on the fringes black America gave America and the world Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Jesse Owens, Joe Louis, Jackie Robinson, Jim Brown, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Langston Hughes, Jacob Lawrence, Romare Bearden, Ella Fitzgerald, Zora Neale Hurston, Richard Wright, Satchel Paige, and many other luminous examples […]

Left at the Altar

A long time ago I got tired of conservatives talking about family dissolution in the black community. The constant recitation of the black out of wedlock birthrate was in some quarters of the Right akin to the Muslim Shahada. No conversation about economic or social policy in black America could begin without it. So in […]

Germ Free

About 133 years ago, during the Chinese coronavirus pandemic of 2020, in late May, the people of the United States of America decided they were done with being locked in their homes and locked out of their jobs in compliance with government health measures. They had a higher a calling.   George Floyd, a black […]

38th and Chicago

Do we, finally, now see how pernicious the false 1619 Project revision of history is? The shattered glass, the fires, the beatings and the mob rule should provide us with all the evidence needed to reject the case for eternally recasting America an an unredeemably racist nation. There are no appeals to justice in a […]

Conceived In Liberty

If you are alive, black, and reading this page please understand this: America does not owe you a damn thing. All debts have been paid. It certainly does not owe you the arsonist’s pleasure of watching it destroy itself.  The 13th Amendment gave you all you needed.  Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except […]
