Herman Cain's other problem: African-Americans

There are 416 comments on the www.csmonitor.com story from Nov 17, 2011, titled Herman Cain's other problem: African-Americans. In it, www.csmonitor.com reports that:

Though his campaign caught fire for a time, many black voters did not embrace Herman Cain because he rejects institutional racism as a major issue. But his candidacy has exposed rifts in the black community.

During his remarkable roller coaster ride into the top tier of Republican presidential candidates, Herman Cain has become both a darling of the tea party movement and target for withering criticism. For all the attention on allegations of sexual harassment, though, Mr. Cain has also come under attack from another group: black leaders.

Good for you!
If a non blacks only referance to a black is an American black its no wonder their opinion could be severly skewed.
No other place in the world do blacks willingly deprive themselves of becoming educated in fear of being considered too white.
What a waste of potential.

When it comes to blacks who lived south of the Sahara desert, which is where the black ancestors of todays blacks in America came from, here are some facts:

1. The black tribes failed to invent the wheel, wagon or chariot during 40,000 years of evolution.

2. They were still living as stone age tribes when White explorers found them in the 1600's through 1900's. In fact, there are many black bantu tribes still living in the stone age today, wearing loin cloths and throwing wooden sticks at animals.

3. The blacks failed to find the gold nuggets and diamonds that were under their bare feet!

4. The black tribes failed to domesticate or train the zebra for transportation or work.

5. The black african tribes failed to domesticate or train elephants for transportation or work.

The black tribes were a failed evolutionary experiment. They failed to develop any form of metal tools or advanced civilizations or technologies. To this day, when somebody builds an oil pipeline through Africa, the blacks will come out and use machetes to hack into the pipeline like bands of apes, to steal the oil or set themselves on fire. Placing loaded handguns in their hands is like giving loaded handguns to drunken monkeys - everyone within one mile of them is in danger of their life! The best thing for blacks is to ship them to africa and give them another 40,000 years to figure out how to invent the wheel.

The Black community fully understands that Herman Cain’s Minstrelsy buffoonery caters to the racist views that the right-wing republicans have as the only acceptable image for Black people. What’s even more pathetically amusing is the way Herman Cain reversed his view on racism when he found himself in trouble.
There has been no greater satisfaction for me than to see this token fall so hard and so fast from his inflated egotistical delusions of grandeur at the possibility of being anything in the GOP other than the village idiot-court jester…“9-9-9” my ass, LOL.

The black community and America need more like you! The entitlement mentality among many Americans, not just blacks is out of control. We are on an unsustainable path. We can not susstain the standard of living, we as Americans have come to enjoy on this path. We don't need higher taxes. We need a bigger tax base. More people working and taxing taxes, not taking more from those who already pay. God bless you! Tea Party 2012!

<quoted text>Fox News Poll: Cain Accusers Seen as Motivated by Political or Financial Gain
November 16, 2011
Cain is clearly a victim of a rascist democratic hatchet job.

Here is a list of black-Americans that were seeking public office that were prevented from even having their name placed on the ballot by the fascist tommy in the WH.

Four from his first campaign to be Illinois State Senator. Obama challenged the petitions of his opponents and they were FORCED OFF the ballot. They are

1) Gha-is F. Askia of South Shore was a 39-year-old Black Muslim assistant to W. Deen Mohammed and a close friend of Muhammad Ali (who would host a fundraiser for him in November) and had been a special assistant to Democratic Illinois Attorney General Roland Burris and was kept on as a community affairs liaison under Republican Illinois Attorney General Jim Ryan after campaigning for Ryan and Republican Illinois Governor Jim Edgar in 1994.[12][13] Askia had campaigned for the re-election of U.S. Sen. Alan Dixon of Belleville over Carol Moseley-Braun of South Shore in the 1992 Democratic primary, supported the appointment of Clarence Thomas to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1991, and had campaigned for the re-election of Chicago city treasurer Miriam Santos of Lake View over four-term 5th Ward Ald. Larry Bloom of Hyde Park in the 1995 Democratic primary.[12] Askia was endorsed by state Sen. Emil Jones, Jr.(D-14) of Morgan Park, state Rep. Connie Howard (D-32) of Chatham, Chicago city treasurer Miriam Santos of Lake View, and Harold Washington Party chairman David Reed of Hyde Park.[12]

2) Marc Ewell of Chatham was the 30-year-old youngest son of former eight-term state Rep. Raymond W. Ewell of Chatham—a regular Democrat who had represented part of the 13th District for sixteen years (1967–1983) until losing a close Democratic primary race in 1982 to state Rep. Barbara Flynn Currie of Hyde Park, an independent Democrat, after redistricting had thrown the two incumbents into the same representative district.[12][14] Ewell said he had been "born, raised, and educated in the 13th District" before going to Howard University in Washington, D.C., and had become a property inspector for a private real estate firm in 1995 after three years as a staff assistant to U.S. Sen. Carol Moseley-Braun.[12] Ewell had worked on the campaigns of his father and Carol Moseley-Braun as well as those of Cook County Board president John Stroger, the late state Sen. Charles Chew, state Rep. Charles Morrow (D-26), and 17th Ward Ald. Allan Streeter.[12]

3) Ulmer D. Lynch, Jr. of Englewood was a 69-year-old former building manager, ex-city laborer, and former precinct captain in regular Democratic committeeman William Shannon's 17th Ward organization before he broke with Shannon and ran unsuccessfully against him for alderman in 1967 and subsequently regularly ran unsuccessfully for alderman and Democratic ward committeeman from the 17th Ward (and later the 16th Ward) and occasionally ran unsuccessfully for state representative.

4)Alice Palmer (born June 20, 1939 in Indianapolis, Indiana) is a former Democratic State Senator from Illinois, representing the state's 13th District.[1] Dr. Palmer was the founding executive director of Chicago Cities in Schools and creator and founding director of the Chicago Metropolitan YMCA Youth and Government Program. Palmer, as editor of the Black Press Review, was the only African-American to cover the 27th Congress of the Communist Party in 1986.

5) Roland Wallace Burris (born August 3, 1937)[1] is a former United States Senator from the state of Illinois and a member of the Democratic Party.
In 1978, Burris was the first African-American elected to statewide office in Illinois, when he was elected Illinois Comptroller. He served in that office until his election as Illinois Attorney General in 1990. Since then, he has run for office four more times unsuccessfully.[2]
Burris was appointed by Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich to replace President-Elect Barack Obama as the junior senator from Illinois. The appointment was controversial, as the governor was already under investigation and there were rumors of his being paid for the appointment. Prior to Burris's appointment, Obama was the U.S. Senate's only African American; he resigned his Senate seat after being elected President of the United States.[3] Burris was the subject of an ethics probe.[4]
Calls for Burris's resignation from the Senate began after allegations were made that he had lied under oath about his contacts with associates of Blagojevich prior to his appointment.[5] The Sangamon County State's Attorney's office and the Senate Ethics Committee are each investigating whether Burris perjured himself in his testimony before an Illinois House of Representatives committee in connection with the Blagojevich impeachment proceedings. On ABC's World News with Charles Gibson on May 27, 2009, a recording was played of Burris's conversation with Rod Blagojevich in which Burris is allegedly heard to be negotiating on the price for receiving Obama's Senate seat. Ethics charges were dropped against Burris in late June 2009, due to a lack of supporting evidence.
----
If Obama wiuld have support there never would have been an ethics probe and ABC's Charles Gibson would have NEVER did a story on Burris.
-----

6) David Alexander Paterson (born May 20, 1954) is an American politician who served as the 55th Governor of New York, from 2008 to 2010. During his tenure he was the first governor of New York of African American heritage and also the second legally blind[1] governor of any U.S. state after Bob C. Riley, who was Acting Governor of Arkansas for 11 days in January 1975.[2] Since leaving office, Paterson has been a radio talk show host on station WOR in New York City.
Paterson was selected as running mate by then-New York Attorney General and Democratic Party gubernatorial nominee Eliot Spitzer in the 2006 New York gubernatorial election.[3] Spitzer and Paterson were elected in November 2006 with 69 percent of the vote, and Paterson took office as Lieutenant Governor on January 1, 2007.[4]
When Spitzer resigned in the wake of a prostitution scandal, Paterson was sworn in as governor of New York on March 17, 2008.[5] Paterson launched a brief campaign for a full term as Governor in the 2010 gubernatorial election, but announced on February 26, 2010, that he would not be a candidate in the Democratic primary.[6]
------
Yes, he was told not to run so fellow GLOBALIST CUOMO could get in. The MSM ran a smear campaign against him, pointing out that he had used his office to get tickets for Yankee games.
------

7) Kendrick Brett Meek[3](born September 6, 1966)[1] is an American politician who was the U.S. Representative for Florida's 17th congressional district from 2003 to 2011. He was the Democratic nominee in the 2010 Senate election for the seat of Mel Martinez,[4] but he lost in a three way race to Republican Marco Rubio along with Independent Charlie Crist.[5]
---------
Obama and the WH undercut Meeks here and supported Charlie Crist on the sly.

That is why we need to find out who smeared Herman Cain. Who was behind it.

White people don't understand that they establish a better life in America before black people. so of course it will take longer for black people to come up. If the blacks were to get paid for all their labor. Then I believe the whites can pass any judgement on the blacks. Until that day white people hold ur comment about black people to urself.

Look if you want to talk about racism look to the left of the Aisle there have been more racist deeds done by liberals then by conservatives. Also I must add that a lot of blacks in today's society do hold onto there "well my granddaddy's daddy was a slave so the Gov't owes me" mentality or that the big bad "white man" is out to get em and so they can't succeed. Yet here we have a Black President and a man who is running for President who is black. What I'm getting at is that there are a lot of disillusioned blacks out there who are kept that way by people such as the NAACP and the Black Caucus that feed off supposed "racism" and this Idea and Indoctrination of the black people into believing that they are entitled to this and that do to the past will not end till we end such groups that have out lived there usefulness. As all they do is feed the hate and seperate us from them or blacks from whites. Jesse Jackson and his ilk are the exact opposite of what Martin Luther King Jr. wanted to accomplish and there very existence is dirt being kicked on his grave. If we really want to end Racism we should end anything that has to do with race. And to have things such as BET and the "Black Caucus" and the NAACP just promotes it. I mean what would people say if there was a "White Caucus" or a foundation to the betterment of Whiteman? But then again I think people are to blind to see what I see especially those of the opposite color and its no disrespect it is just how they are raised to believe.

The problem with Herman Cain to liberals is, he is not a racist black nationalist such as the Black Panthers, Reverend Wright, Louis Fharrakhan, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the NAACP.

Not to mention the growing number of hispanic racist such as La Raza and the Brown Berets.

Todays Democrat Party is anti-American, anti-white and anti-Christ.

If you want to see and hear what todays Democrat Party represents take a look at these videos in thier own words.

The white dumbasses of the Democrat Party are nothing more than lilly white pet monkeys to thier racist masters.

After scanning thru the article, the only blacks being strongly critical of Cain were Harry Belafonte calling him a "bad apple" and Cornel West.

West, a black intellectual, has also been critical about Obama.

http://www.boston.com/news/politics/political...

Cornel West, a Princeton University professor and leading black intellectual, is harshly criticizing President Obama, a candidate he once supported but now calls “a black mascot of Wall Street oligarchs and a black puppet of corporate plutocrats.”

----------

As for Cain, he obviously has been torpedoed by a number of rumors BUT no ACTUAL EVIDENCE. Still, the rumor-mongering has hurt him politically.

Nevertheless, since the issue of Libya has been introduced into his campaign I have to give him kudos for wondering out loud who the "rebels" are.
There is a GENOCIDE going on of black-Africans in Libya that the MSM is ignoring because of their rascism.

Since the GENOCIDE is happening because of a war NOT authorized by Congress, Obama needs to answer for the horrific suffering he caused. I hope CAIN calls him out.
