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.

So the same ol same ol........poorer people should have to work 3 times as hard to get the same benefits granted to rich Americans(the rich Americans are giving to us from god and should not be asked to do anything that would require them to break a nail...........but you poor pieces of sh*t should work harder and be thankful to get a scrap from the rich's plate. Its a crock of sh*t..........if people who think like this really think its fair they wouldnt be so fu*king stingy with supporting those who are trying to get to where they are........instead they support bills that make college less afordable, that makes schools less fundable and that make inner city laws more difficult.....they want poor minorities makiing it.....they are just fine with a.ssuming that blacks or hispanics who are not rich are in this posiition because its thier fault............all the time knowingly supporting more and more laws that work against the middle and poor class in this country.....

Republican. Out of touch. Living in a rich mans world. NOT IMPORTANT!

Plus, does this clown really, really, think the establishment is gonna allow him to win the Republican nomination and run against Obama? Both parties repped by black men? Ain't gonna happen, so I don't get why this fool keeps putting down minorities, and blacks specifically in all his speeches. FOH

If you can't come to a conclusion based on that analogy then you'll forever be a lost cause.

He is partially right.. Black people can succeed in spite of racism.. It's just a lot more difficult, I know the challenges I had to overcome.. And I know people who grew up the same way I did who chose a different path.. It's all about choice and how hard you're willing to work at it...

Right on. I don't respect the opinions of individuals who can't empathize with these truths.

Just had a 'red flag' moment. I have a problem with this even though I've always looked at this in a similar way. Sure, life has obstacles but when the obstacles are purposefully put in your path in order to make you fail or to make you struggle, then something is terribly wrong.

Why are we trying so hard to fit or be apart of something that obviously doesn't want us there? You used key words and phrases like "in spite of", "difficult", "challenges", and "overcome".

Why are we excepting these hardships like "oh well, its just something we have to live with and deal with"? I call bullsh*t because the ones who have had to f!ght and claw through this cesspool in order to "succeed" by someone else's standards have proven how extraordinary we are. And I'm finding it harder and harder to blame the ones who didn't make it because the game is rigged for us to fail anyway.

Just think about how much more fulfilling life would be if every obstacle that you've faced were replaced by a stepping stone or a helping hand along the way...Out of this world potential.

Props for keeping the faith and doing despite the hardships.

Some people are still stuck on the fact that it is what it is............they didnt make this world they just live in it......so if blacks have to overcome then we should be breaking our backs to get some of the same of the liberties as others in this country....some feel if we are not doing summersaults to be accepted by America as "one of the safe ones" then we are not worth helping or a.ssisting.........

Africans still have they're identity,religion and history. So called african americans had all of that destroyed on top off being systematically oppressed for over 450 years. The devils know this. That's why any race came come to this country and prosper. Everybody can except the people who built it.

Having to grow up a part of a culture that intentionally uses bad grammar, calls women THAT THEY LIKE bi*ches, thinks being a thug is a good thing and has no idea how to handle finances is more of an inhibitor than racism in 2011.

We have to literally overcome our own a.ss backwards culture to get our foot in the door. That's holding us back more than how anyone else perceives us.
+1. It will be difficult for us as a race to do that because any time you talk about it, you get a million people telling you you're wrong or "self hating". Our culture, the way we live is absolutely backwards.

Obviously racism still exists, but I do think that it is much less institutionalized now, and more personal. So, I don't think racism as it occurs now is holding black people back in the way it used to, but I do think in large part black people today are still feeling the after-effects of past long-term, institutionalized racism that created huge social, cultural, educational and economic disadvantages that are a long way from being fixed, and that leaves the black community disproportionally vulnerable when things get tougher.

“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."
So true.
