I’d just heard this on the radio. Professor Coleman was interviews and said that part of the class was to keep a daily journal on issues related to the black man in America.

To paraphrase he said that when you see 3 black men on the corner, “approach it from the viewpoint” that they do so because they’ve been denied the chance to do anything else in society and that this is actually a from of abuse.

Why doesn't Temple offer a course of just being a MAN?

It can emphasize things like responsibility, literacy, holding a job, being decent...and de-emphasize Jesse Jacksonian thoughts such as, "I am born - therefore I am owed".

Full Disclosure: At this time, I'm on the final legs of a 6 week glue-sniffing binge, so my thoughts my seem a little "out of touch".

Nevermind...

So if all black mens failings in America can be blamed on slavery, why is it that blacks in Africa that never had enslaved ancestors do even worse?

Sounds like junk social-science, but considering its another left wing whacko African-American studies course, you can't really be suprised.

"Where African American men or African men had been forced to be breeders" Are they talking about men like Wilt Chamberlain, Majic Johnson and Jesse "Rabbit" Jackson?

"Professor" Coleman is full of cr^p. Until the Great Society, marriage rates and 2-parent households among blacks were as high as whites. Following the Civil War, former slaves sought to re-unite families for decades. Sounds like pure blame "whitey" BS.

This course is truly is laughable!

African-American men should study manhood in Africa; African-African men still are enslaving other African-African men, women and children as slavery has always been a function of life in Africa.

Also, African-American "freedmen" (blacks who for various reasons were set free by their owners) were slave owners of other African-Americans prior to emancipation in 1865.

The impact of Blacks owning other Blacks ( which African-Americans don't comprehend) will hopefully be included and be an important part of the good professors course!!!

"Where African American men or African men had been forced to be breeders and studs..." Sounds like some Black man's fantasy.

-- LOL! True!!

I wonder what a realistic course along these lines would include. Malt liquor? Violent crime? Bad music? Abysmal English? Walking like a chicken? It seems like a right-thinking student could have a lot of fun in a course like this.

-- That is if he doesn't mind if he fails the class.

Ignorant comments like this only underscore the need for such a course.

I'm sure he's not implying that anyone as lovely and as intelligent as you would ever be found is such a class.

Thanks- I just couldn't let that one get by. It's one of the impediments to decent race relations.

  (SIGH)...

I was just being my usual cynical, sarcastic and curmudgeonly self...

And a Blessed Easter to you too.

"Gosh, I'll bet this class is a great place to meet dumb white chicks."

Honest to God, about a week ago a thirteen year old white girl at school came over to the van, which I was driving to pick up our boys from the home, and looked over the boys. She told them that she went only with black dudes.

This is the same girl that wrote a letter to a Sudanese boy at the home, calling him sexy man and telling him that she wanted him to do a threesome with her and her Native American friend.

But many young white girls are looking for black dudes now. I see it all the time here.
