    I know there are some who think that blacks can't be racist because ... no I better not try to state the reasoning since I will surely get it wrong. I just know that some people think that blacks by definition cannot be racist.

    So I kind of wonder how people on this board see that subject.

    And I also wonder if people consider Cain racist for his statement about blacks being brainwashed or for any other reason so I'm doing a combo poll on the two subjects.

    You listen to blacks go on about jews, arabs or asians.... It is pretty ugly and pretty common.

    I don't believe cain to be a racist though. A religious bigot is not quite the same thing.

    Of course Black people can be racist. When I was younger, I knew a girl from Trinidad. She was black and I introduced her to a friend who was also black. They hit it off great but her father went nuts. He said he wouldn't allow her daughter to date people who were black. Now my friend had a lighter complexion then either her or her father. :lol:

    In any case, Cain is most certainly a bigot. But I haven't heard anything racist from him.

    In fairness to our representatives in the House... most of them are jack shit stupid. So we should probably take their 'opinions' in the spirit in which they are meant... in that, they'll say any old crap to create fear and hostility towards other Americans for the sake of politics.

    Politicians lack the capability to be honest.

    At this point in American history blacks are probably the most racist segment of society.

    That sad, Herman Cain is FAR from a racist. He is color-blinded. He treats everyone the same regardless of color. He follows Dr. King's message 100 fold more than race hustlers Jesse Jackson, Maxine Powers, Rev Wright, Andre Carson and Al Sharpton!

    Yes Blacks can be racist but I don't believe Cain is one.
