Within any race, we see the jealousies and angers related to limited advancement voiced in disparaging ways toward those within the same race gaining flexible upward mobility and independence of thought. Blacks resenting the advancement and achievements of others in their own race is not unique. Those called "field slaves" during their enslavements resented "house slaves" (for want of the actual words used by the emotional and less educated) because of the latter's advancements in education and capacities for independent thought. It is a common foible of the human race to resent what is not understood. "Field slaves" resented the educated Blacks gaining their freedoms and exercising creative, inventive and scholarly approaches to being self sufficient. Instead of seeing these wonderful examples as purely achievement, "field slaves" rationalized their jealousy and incapacity with angers and severe rejection of even their own best examples of human capability. This applies to some current accusations against Herman Cain, who has demonstrated very capable achievements in business and societal affairs. Even the criticisms in the related article are off, avoiding addressing Cain's actual comments at all. This shows the doped nature of most Libertarians, who embrace the common politic of the Left of using red herring arguments to get others to not consider the actual words and relevancy of an accomplished man's perceptions. Calling Cain an "Uncle Tom" actually defines the racist self-hatred some Blacks have for their own race, implying success by one of their own is not related to self-motivation and excellence, but through generosities and sympathies from Whites. This is the negative impact of a significant number of Blacks being generationally conditioned to believe they cannot succeed without handouts and entitlements. Cain is outside that mold and is therefore resented by his own and those embracing the Left's distortion of the causes and influences of human advancement particular to individual achievements. The mob mentality expressing itself in calling Cain an "Uncle Tom", taken to it's logical extreme is a lynching mentality.

We didn't care about Herman Cain's wealth, especially since there are also wealthy black Democrats. There are also wealthy black Republicans like Condi Rice and Colin Powell with the intelligence Cain lacks. We don't have any problem with their wealth either. The issue with Herman Cain is that he was both arrogant and ignorant about both national and international affairs, and had no problem insulting those of us blacks who vote for Democrats despite wanting our votes for himself. He also made the mistake of comparing his "blackness" with that of the president, which is a contradictory stance in someone who claims people shouldn't vote on race. It was stupid also because black folks come from all walks of life, and very few of us are racially pure. While I disagree with the party affiliation of Rice and Powell, I at least respect them as people. The fact is that we simply didn't respect Herman Cain because he allowed himself to be used as a mouthpiece for those who are contemptuous of us.
