A few days ago a friend asked me, “Sir Edward James III. If you watched the recent New Hampshire Republican debate, how did you feel about Herman Cain’s response to having Muslims in a potential Cabinet? More importantly, as an African American, what do you believe his comments will do to his candidacy?”
I simply responded, “Herman Cain is a bumbling buffoon. If the country were left in his hands poll taxes and the grandfather clause would be re-instituted. He publicly admitted that he knows very little about Islam yet and still he believes that it is ok to implement a Muslim Loyalty test. It’s sad that the Black Republicans who get the most media attention are the biggest imbeciles. Sometimes I wish Colin Powell had run for President so clowns like Michael Steele, Clarence Thomas, and Herman Cain wouldn’t be the faces of Black conservatism. It’s even sadder when Black Americans feel the need to marginalize other groups to make themselves appear to be more patriotic. What does that say about our country? Then again, what does Herman Cain know? He mixed up the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
