(Anti-)Imperialism, Knowledge Production, and Political Economy

*This post is part of our online roundtable on Adom Getachew’s Worldmaking after Empire: The Rise and Fall of Self-Determination Michael Manley, Prime Minister of Jamaica, and First Lady Rosalynn Carter, 1977 (US National Archives) In Worldmaking after Empire: The Rise and Fall of Self-Determination, Adom Getachew brilliantly explicates anticolonial nationalism as a project of worldmaking emanating from histories of imperialism, racial hierarchy, and unequal integration into the capitalist world-system. Reading against dominant literature in international relations and political theory, the author challenges claims that anticolonial critics like W.E.B. Du Bois, Nnamdi Azikiwe, George…

This reality makes it appealing for bench-sitters who see an opening to try their luck because why…

Kanye West: I Can’t Deal.

Like Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry 2 (ThyBlackMan.com) I have been done with Kanye West for quite some time regarding politics and black community. There is too much conflict and misspeaking. I acknowledge that he’s dealing with mental health issues, and that seems to be all the more reason for him to still himself. For many people that space happens via spirituality, and the religion chosen to walk out said beliefs. It seems Kanye West back at publicity again with Sunday something’s, a hit gospel album, and a testimony…

Donald Trump is 100% on His Game!

Like Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry 1 (ThyBlackMan.com) In his famous “Thriller” music video, Michael Jackson said, “I’m not like other guys.” I thank God that President Trump is not like other Republicans. It truly amazes me that many high profile conservatives and Republicans still wish Trump would dial-it-back, don’t be so confrontational and behave more presidential. I feel like saying, “Are you guys nuts? Have you not been paying attention?” Desperate times require desperate measures. Donald Trump is God’s perfect man in the White House for such a…

The Vindman effect.

America is in a very bad place. I say this because a decorated Lieutenant Colonel who served honorably in Iraq- and earned a various military commendations- was set up on by GOP senators in an effort to undermine his credibility. Alexander Vindman  gave damning testimony today when he declared what president trump did in his attempt to shake down the Ukrainian president. It fits a pattern, as witness after an witness confirm what we already know: The American president committed impeachable offenses in his dealings with President Zelinski of Ukraine.…
