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.”

4063854125?profile=originalHe 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.”

  • We should be aware that things did change after Martin Luther King and his marches. I had many black friends where I worked and they took me to see their families. Maybe it was because they wanted to finally beat me a billiards? Ha. They did not have enough luck as some would suggest. Luck, according to professional gamblers is a fools pipe dream. One has good days and bad days, whether in Billiards or with any sport. God bless our American black citizens who have given much to keep our freedoms as many of us have done.

  • God looks on the heart of each person. Thank you for sharing, your Dad is a great Christian.

  • Obama is a muslim marxist.  He himself secretly hates Christians, Jews, Israel, military, sheriffs, and pro-lifers.  When he appears on TV before the American public, he speaks with a forked tongue.  Rep John Boehner, should have had H. R. 107 voted on to start investigation of Obama.  Also H. R. 3 as to why the House has not voted on H. R. 107.  Boehner was voted the most corrupt politician out of ten on the Hill.  Even higher that Obama, and Eric Holder.  Boehner is not a smooth talker.  Obama has Boehner kissing his A--.  Senate Mitch McConnel is another turn-coat.  Darrell Issa is trying, and so is Bob Goodlatte in the House Judiciary.  Both are not lawyers.  They may all be classified as RINO's.

  • OBAMA is a black white man, or so the Zionist got him to believe....

  • Amen.  That makes us brothers.

  • Don't you know Obama is a god himself at least he thinks so. Obama so loved the poor, he created millions more!
  • I am tired about blacks referring to stuff that happened 60 plus years ago and acting like it is still happening. I wil bet that every white person knows of someone or themselves that has experienced a violent crime commited by a person of color which is substancially worse to the way he was treated 60 years ago!!!! We are just supposed to forget it or we are the racist ones!!! I think over one trillion dollars of paying black women for having illigetimate children is enough reparations!!! Stop trying to justify the black on white racism!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Elaine Morris- I SO agree with you.  A shame, a lost opportunity to refine and make whole our nation. I thank Lloyd for relating his dad's experiences - for me, as a white woman, the time when discrimination was so hateful and blatant was long ago.  But I know how I also am influenced by my past.  Pains such as these are not erased with the "get over it" that people hurl at you. It provides some measure of understanding to revisit it.  May God bless us all; may we continue to grow into the people God intended us to be and not be bogged down by the limitations placed by others.

  • It is as women being raped in that they must forgive the perpetrator or the rapist keeps winning! We all know that how we are brought up has much to do with what we may or may not support. I have had many black male friends and many are brought up to prove themselves a man by impregnating as many women as possible. Even their mother's push that! The BIG thing is not to let bad things hang on us but to forgive and let go of it. It is one of the hardest things to do, but it is for our own soul!
