NEW YORK– Perhaps we have gotten our first admission from a Tea Party member that the organization is racist– although this one may not count since it was stated by an African American who was being arrogant.
Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and Repulican front-runner is attempting to use his race as an advantage to run against President Obama in the 2012 elections.
Cain, who is gaining Republican popularity through his stellar performances in debates and his focus on the economy, may only be a pawn to suppress suspicions of racism.
“People who oppose Obama are said to be racists – so I guess I’m a racist”, a line that white audiences, naturally, love. Although Cain has never served in elected office, no one who hears him seems to care. In fact, given the current ugly mood, especially on the right, about professional politicians, that only seems to heighten his appeal.
