Hermann Cain distinguishing himself from the GOP field.
Cain appeals to people because he doesn't talk about race,"
said South Carolina Republican strategist Chip Felkel.
Thank the stars I speak Red-Necklish . . . translation,
“Herman Cain appeals to White people because he doesn't
talk about race; that’s the whole point, he puts Conservatives,
i.e. sexist, racist and elitist White folks in the “comfortable
position,” at ease, by make-believing, pretending
race is not the polarizing combustible, flammable issue
that we all know it to be.
Can you say Uncle Thomas Clarence ? Perhaps Booker T, a man
willing to set aside reality in order to . . .?
Somebody needs to sit this apparently half-blind brother
down and talk to him; Mr. Herman Cain, can I have a moment
of your time? Word is - you’re running for the GOP
Presidential nomination . . . you’d like to become the “champion”
of angry Rednecks across this so-bitterly divided nation,
put a Black face on their pain n’ suffering - legitimize
their anger, assist them to “beat back” this Black monster
at their gate.
You’re comfortable carrying the heavy load for these “angry
White folks,” getting your hands dirty helping them to unseat
this country’’s first Afro-American president.
Negro , please . . . have you lost your cotton pickin’
Your miscalculated run for the Republican Tea Party Presidential
nomination is as misguided as . . . a Black man running
for the Republican Tea Party Presidential nomination!
It not merely far-fetched - it’s pathetically delusional
if not down-right trifling in it’s very limited core-of-reasoning.
How n’ Why you’ve embraced “their” values and standards is
the real question here. What’s the perceived personal benefits
you plan to reap Mr. Cain?
How much “compromising” do you plan to do?
As I understand it, this brother broke into Paul Robeson
form during a lull in the questioning at an political event
, Cain sang the spiritual "Wouldn't Take Nothing for
My Journey Now" in a cashmere baritone, the vastly
all white GOP gathering . . . loved it.
Guilded-missiles and mis-guilded Negroes.... we gotta make
It seems, call me crazy, but Mr. Cain your chosen party is
anti-you, anti your wife and family, anti-Black, anti-Americans-of-Color,
and not to mention; anti-women, anti-worker ants, anti-happy
n’ gay folks . . . just anti-anyone and everyone whose not
a conservative white-male, and - the more moo-lah he has
- the better, and there’s really little debate about that.
Your party, your constituents are the classless bastards
branding President Obama’s mother a nigger-luving whore,
demanding the President “show us your papers boy” need I
It’s your people Mr Cain who refuse to give credit
where credit is due and hard earned - despite if we’re talking
about this president and his accomplishments or individual
Black folks and our personal perseverance against what Tea
Baggers know are overwhelming odds rooted in racism and
It’s the “Right” those real, true-blue patriotic Americans
who’d rather let bridges and schools crumble, people go
with-out 21st century health care - before they’re taxed
- for they cant phantom helping what they blindly and bigoted
assert are lazy, shiftless, moral-less Niggers and Spics.
Please let’s cease with the forced grins n’ fake smiles,
all the hypocrisy: I guarantee you those are the terms
of endearment used to describe Black and Brown folks,
you bet, yes-sir-ree, from Rush and Beck to Pat Buchanan,
Palin, Bauchmann and and Washington Redskins head coach
Coach Mike Shanahan . . . their statements, actions and
deeds scream . . . Go back to Africa !
The hate peculating out of Mr. Cain’s co-hearts hearts .
. . they’d deny their own babies and grandma’s quality doctor
care, to yes ensure Black and Brown people don’t
somehow, someway receive health care. . . explain that for
me Mr. Cain, please? Tell me, enlighten me to the
rational, the sane rhyme n’ reason behind that kind
of hating. Speak for the Rednecks and good ol boys who predominate
It’s the Right, which damns this president for using
American imperialistic military might to stabilize parts
of the globe the US historically destabilizes in order to
loot n’ pillage. And Cain - your Black ass knows damn well
American foreign policy is based on resources and race first
n’ foremost - how can you damn this president for trying
to do otherwise.
(for the record . . . I’m sympathetic to Cornell West position)
Mr Cain, let’s be honest here; the segment of society who
you’re asking support you is the very place where the death
threats to not simply the President hail from, but the death
threats against his little girls, their grandmother and
his wife. How can you look at yourself in the lookin’ glass
after breaking bread with those types of folks?
Whenever this subject of a Black man leading what’s left
of the 1861 “Confederacy” bubbles to the top of the American
stew, say a Michael Steele attempts to speak for “the Right”
they, the base, the core of the GOP attacks what is allegedly
one of their own.
Ask Colin Powell, once considered this nation’s “model Negro,”
Cain, while unsuccessfully seeking a Republican senate seat
was confronted with the predictable charge of being “too
liberal” - of not loathing, not distrusting . . . not
hating Black people nearly-enough to satisfy the
Rush Limbaugh foundation of the “4th Richt.”
Cain, like Colin supported Affirmative Action - which apparently
revels their black hearts.
Mr Cain, what you’re attempting here, to speak for White
America is little more then a feeble attempt to appease
a slice-of-America which supported South African apartheid
while opposing an MLK national Holiday.
It’s simply amazing; Gumby like Negros who can turn themselves
into chocolate covered pretzels if the price, the reward
is great enough
Here, dig this unbelievable bull-crap; Cain explains that
he doesn’t embrace the concept of the "African-American".
He says, "When people try to label me, I very quickly
point out that I am an American first, black second, and
I'm a conservative. So, I'm an ABC."
Does Cain not understand in the minds of most Republican
Tea Party members . . . he’s a BOY first n’ foremost?
Did he not see how very fast Tiger became Black in
the minds of White folks . . . ?
In his newest campaign video, Mr. Cain dones the white gloves,
top hat n’ cane in-order to pander to Conservative White
America; attempting to sooth their fear and paranoia Cain
not only has blind Black folks backing his campaign decrying
“the only color I see is “red, white n’ blue,” while Cain
talks of “how far” America’s come since he’s the great,
great, grand child of slaves . . . .
Do these bought n’ paid for store-front Negroes not recognize
who put them in chains and who today amongst us is trying
to put us back in chains?
I don’t think Cain grasp the complexity of the situation;
populist Tea Party stand-out Rand Paul wants to return to
an post-slavery separate n’ unequal America where
businesses have the 1955 option to not render services to
those individuals the owner deems undesirable.
I’ve never heard so much ridiculous jive-ass gibberish since
Uncle Thomas tried to cry he was the victim of a High Tech
lynching. The only lynching I’ve seen lately . . . Mike
Vick, and of course President Obama is the target of a lynchmob.
I don’t know how a Black man can yearn-to, aspire-to side
with a segment of society which depicts Black people as
primates. Tell me, honestly, how do you get into bed with
these folks? Granted 20 years ago I went to a Ross Perot
rally, and I didn’t like Clinton, the whole “1st Black President
routine got old.
A White women is a far better, and easier choice for the
GOP rank n’ file to make, a Sarah Palin or Michelle Bauchmann
to illustrate the Right is diverse and accommodating
- and that’s the choice their going to make. Once more,
the grand pooh-pah of all the “real Americans”
Rush Limbaugh will not anoint a Black man to represent his
racist/sexist and elitist beliefs. . . regardless of how
far Cain will go to convince the far-right he too hates
. . . Black folks.
Hermain Cain . . . you sit, watch and weep . . . then come
on home crying, with your little heart broken . .. “I thought
they understood Herman Cain was different, a southern businessman,
a former military man, family man . . . “ but nonetheless
a Black man.
