Folks, I just do not know what is going on in our country anymore. A pro-football player was celebrated for refusing to stand for our National Anthem because he says America suppresses blacks. http://trib.in/2bD11YS Meanwhile, other pro-football players were denied their request to honor five police officers assassinated by Black Lives Matter; deemed too controversial. http://bit.ly/2bTnfIV
As for the pro-football player who refused to stand for our National Anthem, he is the product of decades of liberals filling his head with lies about his country via Democrats, public education, mainstream media and Hollywood. There are also ga-zillionaire black celebs, role models, promoting the lie that cops routinely murder blacks and blacks can not catch a break in this racist hellhole called America.
Amazingly, all these liberalism indoctrinated millennial and generation-Xers ignore the huge elephant in America’s living room; a black man elected twice to run our country. Blacks are only 12% of the U.S. population. Therefore, it took mega-millions of white votes to trust a black man with the highest office in the land. Despite obvious evidence proving otherwise, far too many younger Americans still believe the lie that blacks are suppressed and white Americans should feel guilty for being white.
It is truly tragic and down right shameful that liberals have robbed many blacks of appreciating God’s gift of being born American. I am a sixty-something year old black man. I have known from my youth that America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to go for it. In a nutshell, reject liberal’s you’re-a-victim crap and simply pursue your dreams. This formula works far more times than not.
I am hosting a Blue Lives Matter Celebration event Saturday, September 10th at the Ocean Convention Center in Daytona Beach, FL. Time is 11am -2pm and it is FREE to the public. Y’all come!
Things are coming together wonderfully. Famed jazz singer Lisa Scott will perform our National Anthem. Her hubby JB will perform on trumpet. Country/ Rock singer Stony Sixma will be in the house performing with his guitar. I will croon a few tunes as well. It is going to be a blast.
But folks, I must tell you. It blows my mind that some deem my event honoring our brave men and women in blue controversial. What on earth is happening in our country? Pro football players were celebrated for running out onto the field with their hands up further promoting the lie that Michael Brown was murdered by a cop with his hands up in surrender. Black Lives Matter openly sent out a clarion call to kill whites and cops. Outrageously, Black Lives Matter is celebrated in the mainstream media, honored at the White House and awarded $100 million by the Ford Foundation.
The bizarre reasoning prominent in our country today reminds me of a song we sang in my dad’s east Baltimore storefront church when I was a kid. Sister Davis would start as the congregation joined in, “They’re callin’ wrong right. They’re callin’ right wrong. Surely, we’re livin’ in the last days.”
We still need help funding the production of our celebration. Please contribute at http://www.lloydmarcus.com/
For the past week, Mary and I have been celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary in beautiful Perdido Key Florida just across the line from Alabama. Thick southern accents abound. We are an interracial couple. From the giant of a man, robust personality good-old-boy boat captain who caught and steamed the crabs he sold us to everyone else we’ve met, Mary and I have experienced warm southern hospitality. I realize our experience is anecdotal. Still, it contradicts liberals’/Democrats’ despicable narrative that Americans, especially southerners, are secret cross-burning racists. It is just plain shameful and evil the way Democrats relentlessly spread victimhood-ism, racial mistrust/hate and division for political gain.
It is more crucial than ever that decent right-thinking Americans do the right thing; see y’all (been hangin’ with Southerners) at my Blue Lives Matter Celebration.
