Herman Cain

As mentioned before, Saturday, here at Zennie62, GOP Presidential Candidate Herman Cain is now former GOP Presidential Candidate Herman Cain. But what wasn’t talked about before is the message to blacks that Cain sent. It goes like this: just because President Obama does a smoothly good job of being the leader of the Free World, and he’s black, doesn’t mean anyone can do it.

Herman Cain entered the presidential race by hammering Obama for being, among other things, “not a real black man.” Cain said “a real black man is not timid about making the right decisions… I identify with a strong black man like Martin Luther King Jr., or my dad, Luther Cain Jr., who didn’t have a lot of formal education, but he had a Ph.D. in common sense.”

That sent this blogger into orbit. Obama made the tough decision to send U.S. Navy Seals to get Osama Bin Ladin, thus doing something no American President going back to Bill Clinton, successfully has done.

But I digress. That Cain came up with that, and made other choice, race-based comments about Barack, was an example of the black crab-barrel mentality of pulling someone else black down because the other black person thinks they’re getting too big.


Or if it’s not character assassination, it’s black on black crime. Overall, it’s a bad message to send, but that’s what Cain was doing.

Now, he’s out, having made the mistake of not realizing his GOP enemies would pull out the stops to make him look bad, and that he had some skeletons in his closet that needed to be addressed before he ran for any kind of office.

The lesson is to not fight Barack, help Barack.

Stay tuned.
