Now that racism has gone mainstream and it's cool to disparage black folks and claim "political correctness" when we try to respond to said racism, I have to wonder how certain Negroes who claim that we are living in post-racial America feel about all of this.
We certainly know how Herman Cain feels.
"Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has resurfaced to give a ringing endorsement of Donald Trump.
Donald Trump has shown outstanding leadership skills in operating his chain of companies for several decades. He can translate that into running the White House,” said Cain, in an interview with the Conservative Chronicle. “I would be proud to call him boss.”
Cain recently gave a clownish performance at a Donald Trump rally in Atlanta on Wednesday. According to Raw Story, he opened his comments by proclaiming, “Aw, shucky ducky! This sounds like a shucky ducky kind of crowd on a shucky ducky kind of day, here to support an aw, shucky ducky kind of candidate!”
He then launched into a passionate defense of Donald Trump, who has made, anti-Muslim and anti-Latino comments.
“Allow me to set the record straight about one of the biggest lies out there about Donald Trump — and I hope the liberals and the liberal media is listening — Donald Trump is not a racist!” he said."
Is there a bigger Steppin Fetchit type Negro on the political scene than Herman? (Wait, I apologize to Steppin Fetchit, he looks like Malcolm X next to this clown.) I am embarrassed for him if he is not embarrassed for himself. "I am proud to call him boss"?!
Finally, tomorrow will be a year since those horrific shootings in Charleston, South Carolina. It was a horrific and vicious crime which grabbed national headlines because of where it took place and the motivations of the murderer.
Now, ironically, in spite of all these promises of "change", race relations has actually gotten worse in this country since the election of one Barack Obama. And one candidate for president is wisely using the rise of white supremacist to bolster his chances of winning the entire thing.
The sad thing is that so far his political calculations have proven to be spot on.
