Oct 9 - Herman Cain: 'Racism In This Country Today' Doesn't Hold 'Anybody Back In A Big Way'
 

 

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said on Sunday that he doesn't believe racism holds African Americans back.

"I don't believe racism in this country today holds anybody back in a big way," said, Cain, former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, during an interview on CNN. “Are there some elements of racism? Yes, it gets back to if we don't grow this economy, that is a ripple effect for every economic level, and because blacks are more disproportionately unemployed, they get hit the worst when economic policies don't work. That's where it starts.”

Cain a.sserted that he firmly believes that "many" African Americans have a level playing field when it comes to economic issues and pointed to his own credentials to make his case.

With the estimated unemployment rate for the African American community sitting well above the national average, the Republican hopeful signaled he sees the discrepancy as a product of geographical conditions and factors related to education. When it comes to African Americans struggling economically he said, "They weren't held back because of racism." He added, “People sometimes hold themselves back because they want to use racism as an excuse for them not being able to achieve what they want to achieve."

Last month, Cain raised eyebrows when he suggested members of the African American community "have been brainwashed into not being open-minded, not even considering a conservative point of view." He said at the time that his observation can be seen in black voters traditionally lining up to support Democrats.

Cain predicted during a recent appearance on Fox News that in a hypothetical general election match-up against President Barack Obama he'd secure at least one-third of the black vote.

During a recent appearance on CNN Cain said, "This whole notion that all black Americans are necessarily going to stay and vote Democrat and vote for Obama, that's simply not true." He added, "More and more black Americans are thinking for themselves. And that's a good thing."

Recent polls show Cain finding a surge in support in the Republican presidential primary contest.

I'm still baffled at how this man's candidacy has taken off. He's no better than Romney or Perry...in fact, he's probably MORE dangerous. People know Romney and Perry are lunatics...but Cain is oddly deemed as a breath of fresh air. Yeah, a breath of fresh air that was on the Kansas City Federal Reserve's Board of Directors and later became its chairman, and who also said the economy was wonderful, just a week before the collapse. Way to go Herman!

no because what you said holds no merit. If you actually had some intelligent reasons behind what you said than you wouldn't be an idiot.

oh yeah and the eagles suck

He's right. Poverty not race is the major thing that holds people back from moving upward. That's across all races though. Poor white, Hispanic, and Asian Americans struggle with the same problems black people do (A government bankrolled by corporations and the wealthy not really concerned with the plight of the poor). That doesn't mean there aren't opportunities. It just means we have to be more proactive and more responsible. We do some of the damage to ourselves. Too many single parent homes and p!ss poor high school graduation rates are just a couple of problems we've brought on ourselves. Don't get me wrong I think Herman Cain is a joke and some of his other rhetoric about black people is just ignorant but you have to admit to some truth in this statement.
