Black Folks Who Continue To Talk About How Impressive Herman Caine Is Will You Please Answer These Questions

1. What does Caine bring to the table for black people? When black people do better all people benefits so therefore other folks will reap the benefits as well.

2. If you are a Democrat do you plan to register as a Republican because you can not vote for him during the Primary election?

3. So just because you like Caine do you think that the other Republicans are going to support him and his vision?

Ignant Column – Herman Cain: ‘Racism In This Country Today’ Doesn’t Hold ‘Anybody Back In A Big Way’– Source: Huff Post

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said on Sunday that he doesn’t believe racism holds African Americans back.

That’s where it starts.” (Read more)

Note: Key words: don’t believe racism holds African Americans back in a big way. What? How big is big? So he speaks for all black folks now not just those in the Republican party? Oh but I guess he does because he speak for some blacks in the Democratic Party. Well he do not speak for me.
