Herman Cain Will Never Get Serious Consideration from Blacks on Democratic Plantation

I am a proud graduate of Morehouse College. I am among a distinguished group of alumni who include Martin Luther King, Jr., Edwin Moses, Spike Lee, Samuel Jackson, Maynard Jackson and current Republican Presidential Candidate Herman Cain. It is unfortunately, most African Americans will not give Cain any objective consideration simply because he is a member of the Republican party. This confuses me and is also an issue of consternation when we look at the history of African Americans.

Cain, the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO, once served as a Federal Reserve Bank chairman in Kansas City, takes heat from the Republicans establishment just as much as the general black community, including former Bush adviser Karl Rove and conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer who said his campaign was all about “entertainment.”

Although a long shot and the fact that many consider Barack Obama, America's first African American president, Cain if elected would be really the first black president into office. This is not about his skin color, but rather his experience. His experiences and history of a robbed heritage, more akin to most African Americans that that of President Obama. Obama can speak of his lineage to Kenya through his father and Ireland through his mother. Most African Americans cannot trace their family history to any specific person, time or place in Africa.
Cain, the son of a chauffeur and a domestic worker in Georgia, graduated from Morehouse College with a degree in mathematics, and he earned a master’s degree at Purdue before joining the Navy. His rise in the corporate world started first at Coca-Cola and then at the Pillsbury Company, where he was an executive overseeing Burger King and chief executive at Godfather’s Pizza.

At 65, Mr. Cain, platform will push for new energy policies to make the United States less dependent on foreign oil. In a recent interview he said, "My great, great grandparents were slaves, and now I'm running for president of the United States of America," he says later. "Is this a great country or what?" He also upset many Tea Party supporters when he stated that African Americans are too poor to tea party. “They can't afford to," Cain said. "So I think the first reason is economics. If you just look at the sheer economics of it. If you look at the typical income of a black family of four it's going to be lower than a non-black or white family of four," he explained.

Now I am a libertarian and see no big difference between democorats or republicans inside thebeltway. My reality is that Cain’s experiences is closer to mine than Obama. Most do not know that it was democrats that fought against integration, both in the North and South. That it were the "Democrat-controlled state legislatures in the South that placed the Confederate battle flag on their state capitol flags." That the democrats founded the KKK (the first Grand Wizard of KKK- Nathan Bedford Forrest was honored at Democratic National Convention of 1868) and the Council of Conservative Citizens. That no democrat voted for the 14th amendment and that then Senator John F. Kennedy – with an eye on the Democrat presidential nomination for 1960 – voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1957.

Cain has no chance because African American myopia will vote for anyone who is a democrat without out question. Sad fact is democrats are happy to see blacks ask the government to do for them because they will not have to and take the black vote for granted. The way I see it, democrats are like Church’s Fried Chicken and the Republicans are Ruth Crisp. Democrats will sell us foods that kill us and set up shop throughout our communities. We accept without question for that is reality on any plantation, democratic or republican.

History lesson aside, tell me anything Cain has said that appeals to the Black vote? I'm only asking because none was mentioned in the article; and, I think considering this being about Black folks giving him a chance, that this would be noted.

Qualifications and Morehouse aside, folk. This dudue hasn't said anything from an economic policy standpoint to be taken seriously. And as you pointed out, not even establishment GOPers are taking him seriously.

There must be more to him other then the energy policy proposal (which everybody says and can never deliver on because of ties to the energy sector) that you like that gets you excited by this guy, no?

You know me; I tend to focus on policy from an economic standpoint. Again, I have yet to hear anything remotely close to good fiscal policy that has never been said by the typical Republican guard.

Don’t underestimate the Cain Train, friends. Although the other night's debate didn't allow him to shine, Herman Cain's star is still rising and I think Americans will like what they hear as they get to know him better. He's a proven business success and America is desperate for a change of course, before Obama ruins us.

Check out this short video that pits a hopelessly out of his league Obama against Herman Cain as they articulate alternate thoughts on the economic disaster we're in. Barack Obama’s worst nightmare, indeed!

Herman Cain isn't qualified to be president of a condo association, let alone President of the United States. He may be black but he sure ain't Black in any sense of the word. And only fake ass black pseudo-conservatives beholding to corporate America would even think about voting for this lackey.

This joke has only gained popular support, as well as some measure of support in the GOP because the Republicans know they can't win this presidential election against Obama so they're comfortable putting on the minstrel show this time around. Same goes for the rest of their weak candidates. Nobody serious will run in 2012, so we get the circus, and they blow $1 trillion of the money they stole from the American people instead of putting it into creating jobs. If they did that, created 2 million jobs say, maybe serious people would actually vote Republican again.

As it is they are all done in America, all they've got left is voter suppression, fear, Islamaphobia, homophobia and racism to sell.

Herman Cain, won't win the Republican nomination, though he might get a vice presidential bid. Cain will be president of the United States when chitlins fly.

I could not have said it better! You drove that one home! I like Cain too it shameful that people are blinded by labels. I wish people would wake up. It's frustrating and makes me feel helpless sometimes. So many sheep and so few people who think on their own. I just don't understand it. What happened to free thought? Follow the leader follow the leader.....I don't get it and I never have. It's all so sad
