Black Senior Forced to Choose: Obama or Jesus.

I had an extraordinary telephone conservation with my 86 year old black dad, a lifelong Democrat and huge Obama fan. He called to ask me, “Is Obama anti-Christian?” Dad has been a Christian pastor for over 50 years. I said, “Dad, I have been telling you about Obama's anti-Christian policies for the past five years.” Dad replied, “And I have not been listening.”

Dad confessed that he simply could not bring himself to go against a black man in the White House. I felt dad was expressing the sentiments of many blacks of his era. I asked Dad to explain why he could not honestly assess our black president.

Dad became passionate. He said it was because of deep, deep scars he suffered at the hands of white people. Dad said, “I don't hate white people, but my scars run very deep; calling me a n***** and rubbing my head for luck.”

He shared about the awful things he experienced while in the Merchant Marines around 1946. Dad and Jackson were the only blacks on the ship. Dad was a Quartermaster.

He said the crew was sea-weary, exhausted and emotionally spent after almost losing their ship in a storm. The crew was extremely excited and really looking forward to their much needed shore leave when they landed in St Petersburg Florida.

Upon their arrival, word came down that every crew member had shore leave except Marcus and Jackson. St Petersburg had a curfew for “coloreds”. Blacks could not be on the streets after dark.

Dad said he broke down in tears. Jackson was enraged and began cussing. He yelled at Dad for crying. “Marcus, knock it off!”

Word spread among the sailors that there were two coloreds on the base. The sailors were outraged by Dad and Jackson's presence on their base. On several occasions the two young black men had to be encircled by guards for protection.

Dad and Jackson took their chip which granted them a hair cut to the base barber shop. The barber said, “I ain't never cut a darky's hair and I ain't gonna start now! My razor just might slip and cut a darky's ear off.”

Jackson and Dad had to eat their meals in the mess hall alone after everyone else had eaten.

Another ship arrived at the base. When the crew of that ship heard about the two n****** on base, a mob of them stormed the building where Jackson and Dad were. The angry mob planned to lynch the two n******.

Chased by the mob, Dad and Jackson, assisted by shipmates, fled down back stairs to the office of the officer-in-charge who confronted the mob. “Now look here boys. I know you don't want these coloreds here. I don't want them here either. We told them people in New York not to send them down here, but they did it anyway. And by golly, we are gonna do right by them.” The mob dispersed.

Then, the officer had the nerve to instruct Dad and Jackson, “Now you boys leave them alone.”

On another occasion, Dad and his white buddy, Armstrong, had to catch a train to meet their ship in California. While waiting at the train station, an official approached Dad, “What are you doin' boy? Don't you know your place?” The official escorted Dad to the rundown horrible colored waiting room.

Enraged, Dad said he turned to Armstrong and said, “You white son of a b****!” Dad said he was not a curser and he knew it was not Armstrong's fault. He was just so humiliated and frustrated.

In the 1950s when Dad broke the color barrier to become a Baltimore City fire fighter, his humiliation continued. In the firehouse, Dad could not drink from the same coffee pot as the white firemen; separate eating utensils, sleeping area and bath room.

Dad said he could go on and on about racial injustices which have left him with deep scars.

Dad is not on the internet. He said, “My computer and I are not on speaking terms.”

I told Dad I was going to send him information in the mail confirming that Barrack Obama is anti-Christian.

For the first time, I felt emboldened to challenge Dad regarding this sensitive issue. I said, “Dad, once you know the truth about Obama, which loyalty will reign supreme? Will it be your loyalty to a fellow black man or your commitment to Jesus Christ.”

Dad chuckled and replied without hesitation, “It will be to Jesus Christ.”

Somebody who is loyal to another because of skin color is a big time RACIST. I'm saddened for your Christian father, he needs to open his eyes to the goodness of WHITE AMERICANS, they help everybody with their own wealth unlike some,it have to be other people wealth. Many black pastor are very hateful of whites, I know, I deal with them.

I'm not a religious man and I don't go to church but I do believe in religious freedom. It seems as though Christian people of this great country are being made to take a back seat to the other religions here in America now. The fact that our courts are making it a point to allow other religions to dictate what happens in our schools, in our life's, having to heed to their wishes tells me that it is time that racism has now found another way to persecute American's of all races and color only makes me think our courts are made up of nothing but liberal Democrats (formerly) the KKK.

Time we AMERICAN'S took back our country, bring it back to what this country was founded on, not what these liberal Democrat (KKK) fools want. America is a democratic society not a socialist one.

Elba, Susan, you are correct. Obama is STILL black first and a fraud second. I predicted his election years ago. ANY tall, black, young, educated black man would get the black and dumbed down voters vote. Apparently George Soros saw the same thing. HE FINANCED Obama, illegally of course. Soros was the source of the Donald Duck and such, donors. Soros actually confronted Obama once at a public meeting, giving him hell. We not only must get rid of Obama, SOROS MUST BE DEPORTED along with Piers Morgan, back to the UK. WE need OUR Constitution, not a version the Nazi non practicing Jew Soros envisions. ALL 3 ARE EVIL..

There shouldn't even be a decision, one turns to God, Jesus, the Holy Trinity above all else.  This man dealt with ignorance most of his early years, but he is an adult now capable of distinguishing between right and wrong.  If he has chose God, really chosen God above all else, he would figure out that hating another is not within the Christian teachings, therefore he is picking and choosing certain parts of Christianity that appeal to him.  Choosing the anti-Christ will ruin his chance of everlasting peace, I can only pray for his soul.

I really hate what has been done to Black Americans through the years! However, I am really amazed that they vote Democrat the majority of the time, when history shows that the Democrats voted against the absolution of slavery, and fought tooth and nail to vote against every single bill that the Republicans brought up in Congress that dealt with the civil rights issue. It is a matter of history that the Democrats were willing to hold  back the Black's from voting, but now they do everything they can (including lying)  to keep the Black's vote. I am absolutely stunned over this!!!!!!

I really respect Lloyd Marcus. however , all  blacks that were called awful hateful names, and forced to be separated should remember most of  , those who did that, are no longer alive. I am 57 years old, my ex husband is black, ( we didn't divorce due to race)   and the race card is only played today by the Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson followers.  if you were to research the writings of Ken Ham, you'd realize , God created all of us and we are all one race. we are sons and daughters of Adam and Eve.   this comment is being typed on  a page that is white  and no one has this color of skin.   and I don't know anyone who is conservative that is racist/  but the liberals want us to be divided for their agenda. I am happy his dad see's the light now .no one, ever should vote for someone due to their skin color , or gender,. ( Hillary I would vote for Allan West in a heartbeat or Sarah Palin , not b/c of their color or sex, but their principals and morals.  PS ken Ham is the man who runs the Creation Museum and debated Bill Nye, the atheist science guy. his book , Lie is a great read and explains how we really are one race, the human race

  Of course what happened to the Senior Marcus was horrible and inexcusable!  There were plenty of bad people in our Country back then, and there are plenty of bad people(Liberals) in our Country now!  But, our Country was founded upon wonderful principles, and we need to focus on principles, not the actions of some bad people!

  I am Jewish, and I have suffered from more than my share of anti-Semitism here in this Country in my lifetime.  However, I would NEVER support a Liberal Jewish President!
