1) Democrats Undermining Black Civil Rights Heroes’ Legacy

Great article by Marcus Lloyd. #History #MemorialDay2018 #MAGA
2) In 1952, Dad was among the first handful of blacks to become Baltimore City firefighters. In spite of humiliating racist working conditions, Dad won “Firefighter of the Year” two times. He was Baltimore’s first black paramedic and first black Fire Department Chaplin.
3) Practically every room in Dad’s home features pictures of Jesus and civil rights icons; MLK, Malcolm X, Fredrick Douglas and numerous portraits of Obama. No matter how hard I tried to explain to Dad that Obama put implementing leftists’ agenda above helping blacks, Dad loves
4) Obama. I guess it is a generational black thing.

My mom passed away 25 years ago. My sister recently told me she excitedly took Mom to see the home she and her husband purchased in a new community. Driving into the community, Mom saw a sign, “No Thru Access”. Mom panicked and
5) demanded to be taken home immediately. Mom feared my sister’s family would be trapped if her white neighbors decided to attack. Mom’s fear sounded absurd to my sister and me. But it gave us an insight into the racial trauma many blacks experienced back in the day.
6) Thus, I can understand blacks of Dad’s generation emotional ties to Obama – the first black president. Dad did vote for Trump.

Like the Virginia Slims cigarette slogan, America has “come a long way, baby” in race relations since Dad’s day. There is something extremely evil
7) about fake news media, Hollywood and democrats relentlessly deceiving American blacks into believing very little has changed racially since the 1950s. Democrats tell black parents to send their kids to school wearing bulletproof vests to protect them from racist cops.
8) Democrats teach students that whites are born racist and labor 24/7 conceiving ways to undermine black progress. Black millennials believing leftists’ lies is as absurd as my Mom’s fear of a mob of white neighbors attacking my sister.
9) It is extremely disrespectful to my dad and other black civil rights pioneers for Democrats to promote the lie that their hard work, suffering and sacrifices produced very little change in race relations and opportunities for blacks in America.

Democrats have abandoned
10) Dad’s generation of black civil rights pioneers’ mission for an America of brotherhood and equal rights for all. As a kid, Dad took me to the 1963 March on Washington. We heard Dr King say…

I Have A Dream...
11) “The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. They have
12) come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone.”

“I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification;
13) one day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.”

Democrats are obsessed with punishing white Americans.
The crowd of 250,000 erupted in thunderous applause.
14) Clearly, Dr King and his followers dreamed of racial unity. Today, leftists have transformed Dr King’s movement into demonizing whites while instigating racial division, hate and revenge. Democrats have so overtaken and twisted Dr King’s movement that blacks who do not resent
15) whites or hate America are trashed by democrats; Kanye West, Candace Owens, Dr Ben Carson, Justice Clarence Thomas and Herman Cain to name a few. Democrats are obsessed with punishing white Americans.

Dr King also said, “I have a dream that my four little children
16) will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

Old blacks say you had to have your act together to march with Dr King; clean, sober & well behaved. Democrats have thrown character out the window
17) regarding blacks. Everywhere you turn Democrats seek to lower the bar for blacks. Obama’s PROMISE program blocked reporting crimes by blacks in schools. Despite needing a driver’s license for numerous transactions, Democrats say it is racist to require blacks to show a photo
18) ID to vote. Democrat teachers lobby for black students to be allowed to speak Ebonics, claiming English is too challenging for blacks. 40 years of Democrats lowering the educational, moral and cultural bars for blacks has resulted in 70% of black kids growing up in fatherless
19) households. Poverty is a whopping 37% in black families headed by a single female.

It is evil the way Democrats continue to undermine Dad and other civil rights heroes achievements. To further their lie that America will always be a racist hellhole for blacks,
20) Democrats have falsely branded Trump a racist in the minds of many blacks. The truth is Trump is the best thing for blacks since sliced bread. Black unemployment is at an all time low.

America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to go for it!
21) Regardless of Democrat lies, Dad and his generation of civil rights pioneers transformed America, paving the way for blacks to enjoy extraordinary success today. And for that, I am extremely grateful and say thank you. ~ Marcus Lloyd
