Black Tea Party singer/speaker, Lloyd Marcus reporting in from performing at the Wake Up America Tea Party in Ft Worth,Texas at the convention center. Ann Coulter rocked the house with an awesome speech after my presentation.
Folks our tea party movement is alive and well in Texas. In typical Lone Star style, Texans are bold and fired up about making positive change in our country starting in November. Texans are about family, God, country and freedom. I love it! Several thousands attend the great event.
After the tea party, reception and etc, I was chillin’ in my hotel room. Channel surfing, I landed on C-span featuring a conference on civil rights by the Congressional Black Caucus.
Lord help us! I tuned in during the panel discussion and Q & A. The panelists were black intellectuals. Understanding each speaker’s point through their intellectual mumbo jumbo was quite challenging. But, I got it.
In a nutshell, these brainy blacks were saying the tea party movement is a bunch of extremists who wish to reverse civil rights. Folks, I assure you, their rhetoric is totally absurd. The panelists were encouraging blacks to get to the polls in November to counter the attack of the white tea party people.
I was stunned how the Congressional Black Caucus defended every item on Obama’s agenda as a matter of civil rights. For example, they say everyone against Obamacare is really against civil rights, thus branding the opposition evil racists. Never mind that Obamacare is really about the government confiscating our freedom, controlling our lives and forcing socialism down our throats. If you oppose Obamacare and any other item on Obama’s agenda, the Congressional Black Caucus considers you anti-civil rights and a stinking racist.
Such far left, divisive, racist thinking is so wrong, not just for black youths, but for America. The Congressional Black Caucus is just another far left liberal black group claiming to be about black empowerment who are really activists for socialism. They only support blacks who view themselves as victims of American discrimination. Successful blacks who love their country are on the Congressional Black Caucus’ El Crap-O list. We conservative blacks must continue spreading the good news to black America about America; the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to go for it!
While is downtown Ft Worth, Texas, my wife Mary and I stumbled upon a huge antique car show; a fund raiser for prostate cancer. There were at least 500 hundred antique cars. Very cool.
The National Press Club in Washington DC was the scene of an historic event, August 4, 2010. For the first time in U.S. history, black conservative leaders from across America gathered for a national press conference. Their purpose was three fold. One, to rebuke the NAACP’s resolution accusing the tea parties of being racist. Two, to introduce themselves to America. Three, to dispel the myth that black conservatives are as rare as Bigfoot sightings.
I am Lloyd Marcus, the press conference organizer and spokesperson of Tea Party Express which hosted the event. Constantly, I am confronted by the liberal mainstream media, “Where are the conservative blacks?”
The NAACP’s politically motivated despicable attack on the tea party movement based on unfounded charges of racism created the “perfect storm” for black conservative leaders, organizations, authors and entertainers to bond together to defend their, mostly white, fellow patriotic God fearing Americans.
The National Black Conservative Press Conference featured speeches and Q & A by a “dream team” of America’s top black conservatives.
Of the approximate 30 to 40 media outlets in attendance, two black reporters, one from “Black Enterprise” and the other from another black media outlet were stunningly hostile and closed-minded during the Q & A.
Two hours of listening to unquestionable truths, historical facts and compelling speeches which argued the virtues of conservatism, the error of socialism and the evil divisiveness of identity politics had no effect on the two black reporters. Locked in their paradigm, both reporters boldly displayed their contempt. To them, we black conservatives were disgraceful sellout Uncle Tom traitors to our race shamefully attacking their black president.
The press conference revealed an extraordinary truth. My brother who is conservative brought my 83 year old dad to the press conference who is a staunch Obama supporter. My dad admitted to my brother that the content of the speeches was indisputable. However, the emotional scars from the humiliating racism he endured in his youth are so deep, he could never forsake America’s first black president. Dad said just thinking about the humiliation he suffered in his youth still brings tears to his eyes after all these years.
Dad’s admission opened my eyes. It explains how he, a committed Christian, could support a president whose policies and attitudes border on being anti-Christian. Dad’s loyalty to President Obama is solely emotional; the realization of an unimaginable impossible dream. Only through prayer and God’s miracle working power will my dad and many black senior’s hearts be healed enabling them to truly forgive America for her sins of the past.
The press conference energized my brother. He said it validated his conservative beliefs. 99% of his fellow black associates worship Obama. Hearing the speeches of the black conservative leaders confirmed to my brother that he is not alone in his opposition to the Obama agenda. My brother said humorously, “So, I’m not crazy.”
White response across America to the press conference has been extraordinary.
Kudos and thanks for putting the event together are coming in from grateful whites who were moved, excited and amazed by what was said. Apparently, white America is not accustom to hearing blacks verbally waving Old Glory expressing pride in being Americans.
Thanks to liberal democrats and their minions, who control the liberal mainstream media, white Americans are accustomed to blacks laying “guilt trips” on them. The liberal mainstream media typically portrays blacks monolithically verbally waving, not our stars and stripes, but flags which proclaim, “America sucks!”, “America is Racist!”, “We Blacks Are Victims!” and “You Whites Owe Us!”
Ironically, Tea Party Express which has been viciously falsely accused of racism by the NAACP and the liberal mainstream media, reached out, united and provided a platform for black conservative leaders to introduce themselves and their missions to America; an unprecedented achievement.
Tea Party Express hosting the extremely successful first National Black Conservative Press Conference has to be the NAACP and liberal mainstream media’s worse nightmare. While many black conservative organizations have been individually fighting the good fight for the hearts and minds of black America for many years, the impact of their collaborative effort at the black conservative press conference is proving to be immeasurably powerful.
By the way, my dad called me wanting to know when a DVD of the press conference would be available. Praise God!

National Black Conservatives Rally to Take Back America The Tea Party Express, (website: http://www.TeaPartyExpress.org) one of the nation’s largest tea party organizations with over 400,000 members, is conducting a press conference regarding the unrelenting attacks on the tea party movement in an effort to dissuade Americans from rebelling at the ballot box in the November 2010 elections.
“From the very beginning when Rick Santelli’s famous on-air rant helped rally millions of Americans to the tea party movement, the establishment media and liberals across the country have tried to head off the growing citizen involvement in opposing the reckless spending in Washington and the growing intrusiveness of the federal government,” said Lloyd Marcus, Tea Party Express spokesperson and leader.
“First, they called us all Astro-turf and not real, but the crowds kept getting bigger. Then they said we were being paid by the Republican Party, which became obviously false as we took on establishment Republicans as well as Democrats. Then they tried to say we were all a bunch of nuts, but when millions of people kept coming, they couldn’t claim everyone was a nut. Now, they are trying to say that we are racist, which is yet another desperate fabrication. We are going to stand up and call on the Left to start sticking to the issues, and stop the name calling,” added Marcus.
“In light of the NAACP resolution accusing the millions of Americans who attend Tea Parties of embracing racists, the Tea Party Express is hosting a National Black Conservative Press Conference to speak out against all of the bogus, false and malicious charges leveled against the American people who have rallied to take their country back from the big spending and irresponsible and unconstitutional growth of the federal government. Apparently the NAACP and other groups are afraid to acknowledge the fact that the tea party welcomes people of all races, and is a much bigger and more diverse group than they’re willing to admit,” stated Marcus.
Black conservative leaders, organization spokespersons, authors, entertainers and activists from across America will gather in Washington DC to introduce themselves and their individual roles in fighting the good fight promoting conservative principles, values and patriotism within the tea party movement.
“As a black singer/songwriter performing my “America Tea Party Anthem” and traveling with Tea Party Express, I have attended over 200 tea parties across the U.S. The attendees are not racists. They are decent hard working Americans who love their country. Tea Party patriots oppose President Obama’s policies, not his skin color.”
