Herman Cain, you say that black people have been “brainwashed” into not considering a conservative party candidate, like you. You say that you have received vitriol from us. Sir, what have blacks and latinos received from conservatives lately? The racists who oppress us and try to resurrect Jim Crow are conservatives, like yourself. The Republican Party has a small tent with little interest in low and middle-class blacks and latinos. Success is the price of admission. In Negro history it has been Democrats and Progressives who have fought and died for our freedoms, like the Right to Vote, fair housing, fair wages, etc.
Republican dominated state legislatures, the various Tea Parties and Republican governors, like Nikki Haley of South Carolina, have conspired to “rig” the 2012 Presidential Election by making it difficult for blacks and latinos to vote. They have passed laws that require PHOTO ID to vote which is a hardship for poor people. Governor Haley has promised personally to provide transportation to the 200,000 voters in South Carolina who have no PHOTO ID. I hope the media holds her feet to the fire and make her keep her promise. Yes, you Republicans are resurrecting “Jim Crow,” Mr. Cain. What you are doing may be legal but it’s dirty pool! If you are going to win, then win with honor. No, Mr. Cain, we have not been brainwashed. We just have open eyes! God bless the Democratic Party whose tent stretches from shore to shore!
