    Wait a cotton picking minute here! I can be racist without intending to be racist?

    Cain is pandering to white republicans that don't like blacks?

    Seems to me, if Cain is pandering to anyone, it's Americans that don't like one black individual for reasons other than his race.

    Can one be racist without saying to one's self "Hm, what would be the racist thing to do here?" Yes, of course.

    There are racists of every race and political party, so of course there are white racist Republicans. Even putting aside his anti-Muslim remarks, has made a number of statements that have particular appeal to racists:

    Cain rises by slamming race - CNN.com
    Cain charges some in black community of racism – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs


    I'm sure most of the people who support Cain aren't particularly racist, but I'm equally sure that Cain holds a special appeal for racists.

    So I can use words that have some remote racial implication, in a completely innocent manner and intent and still be called racist? BULLSHIT!!!!

    Hi LL! I just have a question about your remark that Herman Cain holds a special appeal for racists. I'm not sure what you mean.

    Also have to tell you I wasn'ty bothered that much when he said he would not allow a Muslim in his administration. I think due to the terrorism today and the difficulty to determine just who is a "radical" muslim, I would play it safe and look for my talent elsewhere. We are talking about the Executive Branch of gov't. Just being honest.

    Who Cain? He mentioned that he might consider Demint as a running mate. Demint used the word "break".
    Demint is "post-intentionally racist", Cain likes Demint, so Cain is pandering, "post-intentionally" perhaps, but pandering none the less.

    Was there this much fuss around Obama's race when he was running? I was certainly involved in the pre election news but I don't recall the accounts of racism as we are hearing against Herman Cain.

    Is it that hard for people, any people to understand that there may be two people of the same race running for the same office and only one appeals to you. AND THIS IS RACIST?

    President Obama has a record he can run on, as does Mr. Cain. I will evaluate both men and their records and decide my vote.

    But for goodness sake, If I was going to be racist, I would be voting for someone white, now wouldn't I? Or is their a new test for racism since Mr. Obama has screwed up his first term as president? Damned if you do and Damned if you don't.

    Liked your post, Ernie.
