If the NAACP decided to support Cain over Obama, then THEY'D be labled racist by the left.
well said.

Too late. Just like Collin Powell, Condi Rice etc.

Heck, if you put an (R) after Obama's name and he did all the same stuff he was doing now they'd be calling him one too.

If Herman Cain is a tea party favorite, a front runner, let us see if he gets on the ticket, or is merely a pawn for them to pander to people with darker skin on racial grounds trying to tell them... see we care for you too!

That's the narrative that has already been constructed by the left: no matter what the Tea Party does or says, they are irredeemably racist. It's a charge that -- conveniently enough -- can be levied at will but never falsified.

He will fail, he's just the flavor of the month and he's a bigot and a idiot as well.

He aplogized for criticizing Perry for the N-Ranch issue, he's a coward and a coon for that alone.

He's black, a issue came up that he think insulted blacks, he apologized like a good little boy.

There you have it. Herman Cain is a "coon." But remember, it's the Tea Party who are the racists.

Why not? They've forgotten that the Democratic party is the party of Jim Crow Laws and segregation.
