Pay no attention to him telling the Values Voters Summit audience that he ain’t mad at white America for how blacks were treated in the past, or for his dialing back criticism of Rick Perry when the “niggerhead” controversy emerged. That’s all G from a guy who’s trying to ingratiate himself with white voters. Despite him saying that he is “American first, black second,” we have reason to believe that Cain is indeed first and primarily black. Pay attention to the fact that some of the first words out of his mouth when he announced to thousands in Atlanta that he was running for President were “awwwww shucky ducky.” Pay attention to the fact that when “niggerhead” was exposed he was one of the first black people to make a public statement about it.
Cain’s father Luther bought a Cadillac growing up — three Caddies actually. Herman brags about this, especially about the fact that one Caddy was chromed out, which was how playa’s did it back in the 60s, which was “the era of chrome.” Describing his dad’s car Cain says “Today you would call it a drug dealer’s car-you get the image?” Yeah, we get it. Cain also recalls speeding — “doing 85” — down the interstate with his father and brother in those Caddies while on the radio with truckers asking them to look out for the police — speeding through Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee, the whole Dirty South, daring a cop to pull them over.
As a young’n, playing with his brother Thurman, Herman watched his brother Thurman point a BB gun at their cousin Elizabeth and then shoot her in the butt. He doesn’t really have anything else to say about it except that she “was not really hurt,” showing his inner ruthless, gangsta side.

Throughout his book, when referring to the public housing he lived in when he was younger, he spells “Projects” with a capital P — “I’ll never forget the day when I was in fourth grade that we moved from the Projects to our house on Pelham Street.” He doesn’t even capitalize the “p” in President of the United States in the book, but it’s okay — we know he’s proud of his roots.
