Is Herman Cain really Black?


Liberals seem very upset that black businessman and conservative, Herman Cain, is doing well in polling on the run-up to the Republican primary process. And why shouldn't they be? The black political stereotype is cracked beyond recognition by Cain's candidacy. Thieves-in-office such as Congressman Charlie Rangle (D-NY) and Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) tend to be the people that we think of when we think of the Black Congressional Caucus.

Liberal actor and lesbian issues activist, Janeane Garofalo feels as if Herman Cain is simply not 'black enough' and is the Tea Party's boy. Listen to her rant.



Herman Cain (born December 13, 1945) is an American businessman, columnist, and radio host from Georgia. He is the former chairman and CEO of Godfather's Pizza and a former deputy chairman (1992–94) and chairman (1995–96) of the board of directors to the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. Before his business career he worked as a mathematician/civilian employee of the United States Navy. Cain's newspaper column is distributed by North Star Writers Group. He lives in the Atlanta suburbs, where he also serves as a minister at Antioch Baptist Church North. He's not a "Black Religion Theologist".

He simply doesn't fit the model of shiftless political gadfly Barack Hussein Obama Jr., the Reverends Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson and other 'famous, but useless' activists and political organizers. Herman Cain has actually had jobs with massive responsibilities -- which from a liberal point of view, paints him as dangerous and suspicious.


From a 'progressive' point of view, Herman Cain simply can't be trusted. Clearly (following Garofalo's logic), any Republican who supports Cain's candidacy must be a racist. His big win in Florida's straw poll is clear proof that Republicans are racists according to the progressive icons. It's a good example of how they think and how they process information.
