Black On Black Crime: Herman Cain Says Black Voters Are “Brainwashed Into Not Being Open-Minded”
GOP hopeful Herman Cain isn’t for real, is he? The former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza (that was some pretty good pizza) has been making his presence felt over the past couple of months with his right-wing rhetoric. Before most considered him a long shot to get the GOP nod in the 2012 election (like we’ll really have two black presidents back to back) but now it’s becoming closer to a reality that Cain is a legitimate contender to make a run at it. He’s the anti-Obama; and that’s exactly what the right wing likes to see and hear.
Cain recently took to CNN’s The Situation Room to suggest the African-American community has been “brainwashed” into not considering a conservative point of view and that’s why African-Americans aren’t “open minded.” It’s a bold statement coming from a fellow African-American. But considering the many that have yet to be satisfied with Obama’s performance, perhaps Cain feels he can tap into their psyche and recruit them into the Republican party before next year’s election. With Cain taking the straw poll in Florida, perhaps he’s on to something. At the very worst he’ll likely deter African-American support from Obama. At best he makes a real dent into Obama support and gives the current president a run for his money in 2012.
