Man I don't see it that way. The left played the race card waaaaay before this popped up. I watched Cornel West and others accuse him of being racist and not embracing the black culture. Many Black celebrities said the same and at this point I can't remember them but I think Samuel Jackson was one of them.
Other liberal talking heads are accusing the white GOP members of liking Cain because he is black, educated, well spoken and successful. Uhhhh isn't that what they said about obama?. They also said it helps ease the guilt of the GOP members who didn't like Obama and his being black.
If he is guilty of anything from his past then let's get it out in the open and get it past us. The left talking heads cannot stand a black candidate unless he is a liberal because as a liberal/democrat he can preach to the poor black discriminated city folk who need welfare, food stamps, healthcare, dental, daycare and what ever else they can say to rally the troops.
Of course he isn't preaching that and that goes against all the BLACK GARBAGE talk that this country loves to toss on us all. He should be embraced by the black community not ridiculed like he is by his own race. It's disgusting how the left said GOP folks are racial because they cannot support Obama when all along it's his political beliefs not his race. Now that a black man who is a GOP member gets support because of his political beliefs we are all racist because he is black? My goodness how do these people live with themselves?
