Herman Cain Says Obama Is Not a “Real Black Man”

Ain’t this a b*tch?!
GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain took some under-handed shots at President Obama in a recent interview with the New York Times Magazine.
Cain, who is African-American, said that he didn’t think Barack was a “real black man.” His reasoning? Well, “a real black man is not timid about making the right decisions….”
Cain went on to add, “I identify with a strong black man like Martin Luther King Jr., or my dad, Luther Cain Jr., who didn’t have a lot of formal education, but he had a Ph.D. in common sense.”
Is Cain serious? It’s obvious that his daddy’s common sense didn’t trickle down to him.
He didn’t spend too much time bashing President Obama on the topic, but the fact that it was even mentioned kills me. Who died and made Herman Cain the keeper all of all things black?
President Obama is not perfect and there are things I disagree with him on. But the man has held executive office for two years and has been in some type of elected capacity as a public official for 14 years. Herman Cain has never held public office before and BARACK is the weak one?
Here is a president that was handed one of the shittiest offices ever and is trying to right generations of economic and political wrongs and he’s not “strong” enough?!? That’s like me saying Herman Cain is not “black enough” because he is a Republican – which I would never be that close-minded to think!
I’m so sick of black people tearing each other down, even at this high level. Yes, it’s politics and that’s the unfortunate name of the game. But, does Cain realize that President Obama will be listed in the textbooks of his great-grandchildren? When Herman Cain fails to clinch the GOP nomination, a highly likely scenario, Obama will STILL be president and STILL be leading. He’s already shown how strong he is to do something that Herman Cain only WANTS to do.
Now if that’s not strength, I don’t know what is.
