    I agree with this:

    My short answer is that Cain has made his racial acceptability to racist white folks, and dissing black folks his campaign centerpiece, along with his bizarre economics plan.

    He's not just any old candidate - he's a Koch-Cain creature.  

    I would be uncomfortable calling it minstrely, perhaps because I am white, but I hear what they are saying.

    Cain told right wing racists what they wanted to hear about African Americans, and in doing so he traded on his blackness to help oppress other blacks.  That seems  wrong to me.  

    There is room for black conservatives, pro-business, etc.   In fact, as equality grows, there is no reason to expect that most black folks will be left wing.  Cain was a successful business man, and he reflects the views of some.  He's another right winger.

    His latest problems with sexual harrassment add another dimension.  He is busy trashing the woman who came forward.  For me, with at least 4 different women making charges, along with the settlements and his changing stories, I think there is something there.

    I think Herman is about Herman and he does not seem a particularily moral person in many ways.  But that could fit a lot of white politicians also.  

    His politics suck.

    More jobs equal less debt, even our kids can understand that.
