Herman Cain: “Racism, schmacism…racism is not a big deal”

(Newser)–Herman Cain insisted in an interview yesterday that racism in America isn’t significantly impeding economic progress for minorities. “I don’t believe racism in this country today holds anybody back in a big way,” the presidential candidate declared on CNN. Many “have a level playing field,” he added. “I absolutely believe that.” But he acknowledged there are still “some elements” of racism. “It gets back to if we don’t grow this economy, that is a ripple effect for every economic level, and because blacks are more disproportionately unemployed, they get hit the worst when economic policies don’t work,” he added. He blamed educational differences and particularly hard-hit regions, including Detroit, for high unemployment rates among blacks. Still, he said, many blacks have only themselves to blame for their economic situation. “They weren’t held back because of racism,” Cain said. “People sometimes hold themselves back because they want to use racism as an excuse for them not being able to achieve what they want to achieve.”

 

This is a candidate I can support.  He doesn’t make excuses, and he doesn’t need facts.  He’s got his ideas and principles and can’t be stopped.  I would love an all black guy election.  America would just ooze swag all over the place.

I think this dude would vote for Herman Cain

 

Nine, Nine, Nine for the win.

    Herman Cain and anyone who believes this needs to read “Angry People Smiling” by Peter Ashley asap, a novel based on fact that will challenge any thoughts you ever had on race, gender, sexuality. The fact that racism and bigotry still play a massive role in all large economies. The man is living in a box and anyone who believes him is walking around with their eyes and their minds closed.
