Ed Schultz, host of MSNBC's the Ed Show, believes that Republican presidential contender Herman Cain is pandering to "white Republicans out there who don't like black folks" and accused Sen. Jim Demint, R-S.C., of using racist langauge in his opposition to Obamacare.
Georgetown professor Michael Eric Dyson agreed with Schultz's suggestion and accused Cain of denying racism for the sake of his "great machinery of self-promotion." Dyson said that Cain should especially recognize "post-intentional racism" - racism that people don't intend to have or to act upon.
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.
