It was the mid-1950s. Around nine years old and the eldest of five, I, along with my parents, was extremely excited as we oohed and ahed over our new home -- new appliances and everything. Our family moved from a leaky-roof, pot-belly-wood-stove row house in the ghetto of east Baltimore to a brand new government high-rise.

I admire however Mr Marcus’ brain is wired that he even at age 9 could see the big picture.
I am proud he is a Tea Partier and hope he is proud of ,ost of us as well
It isn’t easy to be known as a Tea party advocate

The MSM has perpetuated its shameless, malicious and irresponsible lies about the Tea Party for entirely TOO long.
For THIS next Presidential election, I hope the right people with the right venue step up to the plate and set the story straight!
Black America is poised to win its third and hopefully final civil war with the political ideology that has enslaved it from the beginning.
