The race card:
- "They are doubly scared that a real Black man will run against Barack Obama" at around the 3:35 mark.
- Asked why more African Americans haven't joined him at tea party rallies and conservative conventions like the Faith And Family Conference in DC this weekend, the millionaire ex-CEO has a different explanation. African Americans, Cain told TPM, are too poor to tea party.
- “African-Americans have been brainwashed into not being open minded, not even considering a conservative point of view,”
- "Since Gov. Perry has been going there for years to hunt, I think that it shows a lack of sensitivity for a long time of not taking that word off of that rock and renaming the place," he told ABC's This Week.
And the one that got Herman Cain in trouble with the people who always wail against the use of the race card? It was number 4.
- Example one: "Again, I just wish that Cain had given Perry the benefit of the doubt. It saddens me that he didn’t."
- Example two: RUSH: I’m gonna tell you, this is really disappointing to me. Herman Cain. I liked Herman Cain — like Herman Cain. The Washington Post has it as a Macaca story about Rick Perry. Apparently back when Rick Perry was a Democrat… There’s this woman at the Washington Post who’s written a story that, with traditional journalism, wouldn’t even pass the first review by an editor. But apparently back in the eighties when Perry was a Democrat, he and his dad would go hunting at someplace and there is a rock that had the N-word on it that somebody had painted over.
"Liked Herman Cain"? Now, to me, this is a good example of the Republican plantation. Cain can whip Black people all he wants, but the minute he dares to look at a white Republican in the eyes, he gets the cat-o-nine tails.
