4063440452?profile=originalCandidly, I have struggled with this for years; how best to explain why I am a black conservative and why fellow black Americans should join me.

I served on a board with an extremely bright black mom. Both of her kids, a boy and a girl, are brilliant; her son received a full scholarship to Yale.

This black mom is well-read on “whiny” black liberal authors and philosophers. I am talking about the majority of black authors you see featured on mainstream TV. They sound extremely intellectual, explaining how white America is still systematically abusing blacks and why more heavily funded government programs are the answer. I feel like screaming at my TV, “Knock it off! Bottom line is you hate white people and are seeking more entitlement government freebies!” Such needy victim rhetoric has NOTHING to do with, nor does it achieve REAL, “black empowerment”. Frankly, these people turn my stomach.

As I said, the black mom is extremely well-read on victim-hood peddling black authors and has never heard of brilliant black conservatives Professor Walter Williams and Dr. Thomas Sowell.

Professor Walter E. Williams is an American economist and academic. He is the John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University, as well as a syndicated columnist.

Dr. Thomas Sowell is an American economist, social theorist, political philosopher, and author of 30 books. Dr Sowell is currently a Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.

Both these guys are about “real” black empowerment, teaching personal responsibility, education, hard work and morality; not the standard blacks-are-eternal-victims and white-America-owes-us garbage spouted by black pundits on TV. Thus, you NEVER see Prof. Williams or Dr Sowell on mainstream TV. I love these guys, Prof. Williams and Dr. Sowell.

Black media and mainstream liberal media, for the most part, ignore black conservatives. It is shameful that I had to hear about distinguished black conservatives who have the their heads on straight from white conservative talk radio hosts.

On rare occasions when black media (talk radio, TV & etc) does recognize black conservatives, for the most part, it is to denigrate them – labeling them Uncle Toms, traitors to their race and self-loathing stupid n******.

Liberal mainstream media today strives to keep black conservatives “invisible”.

My 84 year old black dad never heard of Herman Cain until the liberal media's gleeful 24/7 coverage of alleged sexual harassment against Cain during his bid to win the Republican presidential nomination.

Think about that folks. Herman Cain is a black conservative author, business executive, radio host and syndicated columnist. Cain was the first black CEO of Godfather Pizza and CEO of the National Restaurant Association.

If embraced by Oprah, Tavis Smiley and the mainstream media, Herman Cain would have been a tremendous inspiration to young black entrepreneurs. But, the left “don't cotton” to uppity blacks who achieve the old-fashion way -- via education, hard work and character without government intervention or lowered standards.

Tragically, the left chose to introduce Herman Cain to black America as nothing more than a guy who can't keep it in his pants. This is how the left (liberal media and Democrats) love to demean, discredit and humiliate self-reliant, non-victim-minded blacks.

Still, I keep searching for the answer – what do I say to persuade blacks to, as that spiked haired blonde female dietitian use to say, “Stop the insanity!” How do I get fellow blacks to see beyond their racism and “honestly” assess their forty years of loyalty to the Democratic Party? Are blacks better off today than they were forty years ago? Remarkably, aspects of black life surrendered to Democrat policies and programs are far worse. Enough with the stupid, fact-free rhetoric which says, “I can't vote for a Republican because they are racist”. Historically and even today, most racism against blacks and whites, spews from the Democrats.

Black American brothers and sisters, the dems have been playin' you for suckers for far too long. They are not your friends. Their motivation and game are extremely simple.

The Democratic Party leadership has been infiltrated by arrogant power hungry liberals who think they know better than you how to run your life. They invent “fake” enemies via lies about Republicans being racist, mean-spirited control freaks. Ironically, this perfectly describes the modern Democratic leadership. Every Democrat campaign is the same. Vote for us! Surrender all power to us! We'll take care of you and protect you from the evil Republicans!

Meanwhile, under Obama, black unemployment has gone through the roof.

Black on black crime statistics are shockingly high. The black male high school dropout rate is at an epidemic high, only 25% graduated in New York.

Fifty percent of black pregnancies end in abortion. Since 1973, approximately 5 million blacks have died of AIDS, violent crimes, accidents, Cancer and heart disease combined. By far, abortion is the greatest cause of black deaths, 13 million. Blacks are committing a suicidal genocide.

Black America, how's that monolithic forty years of loyalty to the Democrats thing workin' out for ya'? As God continues to give me strength, I will continue my quest for the ultimate appeal that will persuade my fellow black Americans to stop the insanity of voting Democrat.

  • Merlie, can you tell me one thing that Bo has done for America besides lie. Millions to kenya, billions to the Muslim Brotherhood, backs the unions that have forced companies overseas, talks up teachers while children in America are getting dumber, backs the OWS whiach are communists that want to destroy America,  will not close the borders because he wants the illegal votes while leaving America open to terrorists with weapons of mass destructions that could destroy a city or water supply, all Bush's fault, supported the black Panthers in FL to put out a bounty on another American and never did anything, supported the selling of guns to Mexico so he could use that as a excuse to band guns,  

  • I do agree with the majority of Mr. Marcus' post, however I still feel that there is too much finger pointing going on in today's politics.  I agree that Black Americans do need to have a more open mind and think for themselves when it comes to the political party that suits them best.  They also need to stop letting the main stream media (television) educate them on the accomplishments and failures of those in power.  They need to read.  I do and I find that there is a lot of propaganda being thrown around by both parties.  As for Mr. Obama, I do respect the man and all that he has had to endure in four years and I can honestly say that he has not come off, to me, as a 'mud slinging' politician but more as a man who is trying to get things done for all Americans. No President will ever be able to please everyone but I do like how this President is showing his character as a man.  I think that the playing field would be more even if the right wouldn't criticize everything that the President has done and show him some respect and give him accolades for the good that he has done, because honestly that is what is making more Black Americans side with the Democrats.  Republicans are coming off as arrogant politicians who are only trying to negate everything the President is doing and they are not offering any helpful suggestions that will make the country grow as a whole.

  • Fionally.........another Black American who GETS IT!!!!!!  If only more people in the black commuity could just see past the liberal/democratic rhetoric.  I believe Herman Cain put it well when he said that he believed that a majority of Black Americans have been brainwashed into believing that they cannot get any farther  up the social ladder than they are now...that the government should and would take care of them the rest of their days.  The Democrats AIN'T YOUR FRIENDS, folks.  Wake up, please.

  • I Would vote for this man over Romney or obama in a millisecond.

  • I had the privleage of hearing Mr. Marcus speak at a TEA party rally and could not help but cry, he is such an inspiration not only to blacks but also whites. I saw a Columbia professor on TV telling I think it was OReilly that it is a proven fact that Republicans and black Republicans are really not intelligent. I was shocked that dems brainwash people into believing they are not smart. Charlotte Bergen (a young black lady in the political field) got verbally beat up by a black radio guy because she was a Republican and he told her "I do not want to shake your hand because your whiteness might rub off". Star Parker defended the Zimmerman situation until more evidence came in. America needs more honest and good black people standing up and taking a position, thank you Mr. Marcus.

  • Fascinating opinion piece.  I don't know what to tell brother Lloyd, other than to keep doing what you're doing.  I, too, idolize Sowell and Williams.  Maybe, we should set up a society to distribute books such as "The Vision of the Anoited" by Sowell or "Up from the Projects" by Williams to community centers in inner-city neighborhoods.

  • I have read several blogs by Lloyd Marcus and I Love reading them. Good Man

  • It is time for the silent majority to stand up and NOT just give the kind and "Politically Correct" rhetoric for a change! That's always something delivered by the liberals, progressives, socialists and democrats that feed the frenzied few into creating chaos and it's time for the "Pide Pipper" of the Chaotic Movement to be exposed as the perpetuators for the "REAL" Racism in this country and the true Propagandists and Pushers behind the elements of the so called "sense of entitlement" movement. These are the people responsible for keeping people down and unfocused on the real truth about what America is all about, to work hard and achieve! To those who believe the messages sent from the left, let me ask you one thing. If it's true that we keep our friends close but keep our enemies closer, which one do you believe you are to the "LEFT"? I don't know about you but I never need to work hard with my REAL Friends! I only work hard around people I don't trust! The LEFT has been working REAL HARD for years to keep you where you are, after all, I'm 54 and you all are still crying about the same issues that I've been listening to for my entire life time and I don't think it will be a stretch for me to say that we are going to hear these same issues for the next umteen years. Wow, what a waste of your time and energy! Good God people, please wake up and recognize when you're being used! You could be using all that wasted time and energy in making something of yourself! Imagine the pride your family will feel and the pride you will feel about yourself! Be a REAL American and be strong and do the right thing for yourselves!

  • very well said Lloyd, I can only hope that people of all color get your message.

  • This is the threat of russian communist to go in and use subversion to use a group to dislodge a county. They prey on people threw hate, fear, envy, coveting, anger, stealing any and every imoral act they can. Using people to do there durty work. These same people who they use are the first killed when communist take over. The russian communist are ugenics feaks. About as racist as they come.
