America is a unique melting pot and we are rich with varying cultures, ideas, nationalities and ethnic groups. We have come a long, long way in our struggle to overcome racism, prejudice, and discrimination.
The issues with which we grapple today are very different from those of a century ago or even fifty years ago.
American Thinker has an excellent essay describing how one man suffered during the days of racial prejudice and we see that prejudice was not just something practiced in the deep south. We can all learn from the magnanimous attitude of Rev. Marcus and the way he handled the situation. Please read his story. I believe you will find it is inspiring.

Today in America new issues arise that are very different from those with which Mr. Marcus struggled. Perhaps we have created a ‘supersensitive’ society which seems to expect more than life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness from our government.
In Georgia there is a law suit pending against several cities for being “too-white”. Those filing the law suit actually want to dissolve the city charters of Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, Johns Creek, Milton and Chattahoochee Hills.
Meanwhile, in the state of FL a federal judge has ruled that those who want to have a special car license plate bearing an emblem of the Confederate Flag should have the right to do so. This has been forbidden for sometime in the state of FL.
Regardless of how one might feel about the license plate issue or the dissolving of city charters, I hope we all agree that we never want to return to the days when hatred and prejudice separates citizens as occurred during the days of racial segregation. I believe that there will be a special place in heaven for men like Rev. Lloyd Marcus Sr.
But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9
