    MSNBC Analyst:GOP Sees Herman Cain as a 'Black Man Who Knows His Place'


    "One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy," Finney said. "I think he giving that base a free pass. And I think they like him because they think he's a black man who knows his place. I know that's harsh, but that's how it sure seems to me."

    "Thank you for spelling that out," Bashir responded.
    This isn't the first time liberals have made this kind of charge about Cain and his supporters.
    During an online production of NBC's Meet the Press this week, Democratic congressman Elijah Cummings of Maryland said white voters support Cain to show they aren't racist. “I think when [members of the Tea Party] can vote for a Herman Cain and hear him say the things that he says they feel like, ‘Well, you know, I can, I support this guy and...so it shows that I’m not racist and I’m supportive,'" Cummings told host David Gregory."

    But of course Obama said in his own words..
    They’re going to try to make you afraid.
    They’re going to try to make you afraid of me.
    He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name.
    And did I mention he’s black?"

    Finney, stop projecting your own racism on everyone else.

    Can leftists look past skin color? Sure doesn't seem like.

    The support for Cain isn't about race; it's about the extremist right's hatred of Romney.

    You're welcome to your opinion, no matter how baseless it is.

    Idiot.

    If you want to agree with Finney that the Right likes Cain because he's a black man who knows his place,

    you're welcome to that opinion too.

    Oh, please. If Romney gets the nomination, you will be saying things about him that even I'd consider unfair.

    Please don't try go make Romney the victim.

    Incidently, why is it "extreme" to dislike a guy with no principles, a crazy religion, who will say anything to get elected and has made his fortune screwing average working folks out of their livlihoods? Frankly, under normal circumstances, you'd be as against him as I am.

    But you are going to make him a victim because the rank and file are reluctant to support the Beltway Establishment's attempts to foist him on us. Right.

    I think they are SO AFRAID of the BLACK Republican Cain, is that if he IS ELECTED...they will LOSE their talking point of how Republicans and the party are RACIST.

    One thing it is showing though, is JUST HOW RACIST they are on the left.

    go Cain

    I didn't say anything about him being a victim. You've forgotten how much the Right hated McCain in 2008.
