Amazingly, Herman Cain is a Bigot!


The GOP candidates have distinguished themselves as bigots. From Rick Perry’s Niggerhead ranch  to Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Dr. Laura using the word “nigger,”  it seems bigotry is a common characteristic of GOP candidates. The casual observer might think that Herman Cain might be more sensitive to racial issues because he is black. The casual observer would be wrong! Herman Cain is also a bigot.

Given the fact that he seems to prefer white women, it appears that race is a factor in his mind. However his bigotry against Muslims has been something of which he seems to be proud. He has stated that he would not have a Muslim in his cabinet. In telling the story of his surgery for colon cancer, the doctor who saved his life was Dr. Abdallah who “sounded too foreign”. When Mr. Cain was advised that Dr. Abdallah was Christian his response was “Hallelujah! Thank God!” This comes on the heels of Cain’s recently expressed belief that the majority of American Muslims are extremists, based on the knowledge of a “very prominent voice in the Muslim community” whom he refused to name.

In the words of Omar Baddar, a writer for Huffington Post,

“This man (Herman Cain) makes Sarah Palin look like an intellectual, and Newt Gingrich like a compassionate ‘Kumbaya’ chorus leader.

  1. I have always been aware that being a member of a race that has faced discrimination does not prevent that member from being a bigot himself/herself. In addition to Cain’s preference for white women and his anti-Muslim prejudices, he also said during the GOP candidates’ national security debate on CNN that he would profile people who look like the terrorists who have attacked this country. By that, I believe he means Arabic folks. That would mean the establishment of a highly intrusive police state which would dwarf any current concerns about “big government.” In addition, his ignorance of history means he doesn’t understand that terrorism can have many faces–like that of Timothy McVeigh. The more this loon talks, the worse he looks and sounds. As the GOP’s answer to President Obama, in order to take black votes from him, it is an epic fail.

      1. As a black man I will tell you alot of black men like white women. This is nothing new. However, I think the real issue with Cain is his dishonesty and paperwieght knowledge of relevant issues (i.e. foreign policy) In fact it is pathetic to be a politician running for president with such little knowledge. What does that say about the state of this country?

      2. John,
        I agree. People seem to be so focused on the economy, it seems we have lost our appreciation of the importance of the President’s role in foreign diplomacy.
