“Insert-Man-Here” Shirts!

Requested item on sale for two weeks only!

Many men have told me they feel like they are not really seen as people in relationships. Instead, even as early as the dating phase, they feel like commodities (almost like clothing) to be “obtained” to help her achieve her dream…

“Watch For the Bait-N-Switch: When the Contempt Isn’t For Kevin Samuels But For You, Black Man” by T. Hasan Johnson, Ph.D.

These articles are a damned disgrace. No one mocked bell hooks when she died. No one called her a manhater to any wide degree—despite that she argued that the Central Park 5 were likely guilty and low-key blamed Black manhood for their “behavior.” No one posted multiple tweets of people ridiculing her when announcing her death. No group celebrated published think pieces, essays, videos, and news reports where they high-fived and bragged about how good life will be now that she’s dead. And unlike Samuels, her works are required reading in universities around the world—and her public career at least 40 years longer. And this also applies to other late feminists such as Maya Angelou and Toni Morrison. No one did such in any widespread way like we’re seeing with Kevin.

“Black Men and Their Ignored Emotional Labor In Relationships” by T. Hasan Johnson, Ph.D.

Just had a strange flashback. I’m watching a film dealing with a married couple who could not have children. At every street corner they walk by women with babies in babycarriers or receive letters from family members who’ve just had babies. At each instance the wife nearly collapses in tears…UNLESS, the husband gently redirects her before she even comes into contact with such situations.

A Clarification: Black Male Rights Advocacy by T. Hasan Johnson, Ph.D.

To be clear, I am a Black Male Rights Advocate (BMRA). Politically, socially, ideologically, and conceptually I stand for the prioritization of Black male humanity for boys and men over conjecture and stereotype. Both my advocacy and research stand fervently against anti-Black misandry in all forms and contexts. That said, I’ve purged those from my life who stand for the denigration of Black males. If I’ve somehow missed you, feel free to vacate my page (and my space). Trust, I’ll not lose any sleep over it. As a man, I’ve long since learned how to stand alone on principle when those around me follow trends.

I’m a strong advocate for an independent approach to the study of Black male life that allows BMRAs to speak unapologetically and accurately. Thus, my creation, The Institute for Black Male Studies (https://www.instituteforblackmalestudies.com), is independently financed (by myself and everyday supporters). Feel free to support if you’re so inclined (patreon.com/THJohnson).

Also, I stand with the brothers who’ve helped me start the Black Male Political Agenda. It is not complete so suggest additions if you feel compelled. Regardless, it’s a strong start…

My main point is the work is being done. Brothers are on task. I hope you join the movement.
