Pro: Why Lloyd Marcus Thinks We’ve Moved Beyond Race
1 year ago
“I think many Blacks feel they have a right to be racist.”
Loop 21: Do you think race will play as big a part in this year’s upcoming presidential election as it did in 2008? Why or why not?
Marcus: Race will be an issue in the 2012 election only because the Democrats and their sycophant friends in the liberal mainstream media will make it an issue. They have already attempted to brand the Tea Party racist. Forty percent of Tea Party folks voted for Obama. Their opposition is about Obama’s policies, not his skin color. However, the left will make this coming election about race and class envy.
Loop 21: Do you think this society’s view of race is currently affecting African Americans’ economic and social position in America? Why or why not?
Marcus: Our society's view of race is not affecting African Americans’ economic and social position in America. What is negatively affecting Blacks is the left and Black Liberal Plantation overlord’s exploitation of race for selfish political reasons. In essence, they are betraying their own people by convincing them that they are victims, despite being blessed to be born in the greatest land of opportunity on the planet. For crying out loud, some Black rapper has a $90 million fragrance line. Black unemployment is at an unprecedented high as the result of Obama’s economy.
Loop 21: The term “reverse racism” has come up frequently since people have started using the term “post-racial society”; do you think this term has merit? Why or why not?
Marcus: I think many Blacks feel they have a right to be racist. And, I believe it is just as wrong as whites being racist.
Loop 21: What does the ideal society look like to you, with regards to race? How do you think we can get there?
Marcus: Star Trek represents my perfect society; where race is irrelevant. I dream of a society where people are judged and relate to each other based on the content of their individual character rather than the color of their skin.
Loop 21: Why do you think those on the other side of this conversation are misguided?
Marcus: Some folks have made a very profitable living keeping race in the forefront. Some folks are simply infected with terminal hate. Some find comfort in perceiving themselves to be victims rather than accepting responsibility for their lives and their choices.
Loop 21: Is there anything else our readers need to know about the idea—and the reality—of a post-racial society as it relates to the African-American community?
Marcus: Forget about race and simply go for your dreams.
