Unfortunately for Mr. Cain, Mr. Steele et.al., it is precisely because of these patronizing racist ads and the underlying mindset, that I would never in this lifetime ever vote for a Republican.
That is precisely the defeatist attitude I would expect from one who has been convinced and conditioned by the left that they will never succeed due to their race. Sadly, you have digested the liberal pablum and have probably been poisoned as a result. My black associates (including my uncle) who have rejected this BS have done very well.

Take off the shackles of liberalism and perhaps the world would appear more free. Heck, today my son's best bud (a 300lb + massive black kid) and I had a chat over his "sleepover" about his goals to become a physician. The kid is smart as hell, but I advised him to use the available benefits of being a minority to gain an economic and academic advantage over his competition to achieve his goals. He and his parents understand that achieving goals is a battle- it requires planning and using every possible advantage. This kid will do VERY WELL because he and his parents have not bought the BS of liberalism, not because of its "benefits".

Embrace failure and you will find it. Be confident in yourself, work hard, and you will be successful. When you are older and have failed, you can look back with bitter conviction that the system screwed you and die a "happy", poor and bitter man. That sounds just wonderful and is, of course, the refuge of losers. I am of trailer trash origin and and have done very well in life. The difference between you and I is simply attitude- I know that I will succeed and you know that you will fail. Game over.

Is it just me, or does the guy with the "hos" on the side sound European-American?

I say the other guy is white and YES, I AM OFFENDED!

I'm tired of being talked down to by the man!

Why don't you explain to me why you don't vote Republican, how long have you been of voting age and have you ever voted for a Republican?

Unlike you I will ANSWER the question not say "I dunno ask Obama".

1.) I don't believe Muslims are trying to over run the United States.

2.) Pro Choice...Separation of CHURCH AND STATE conservatives conveniently ignore the constitution on that one..keep your RELIGIOUS IDEAS OUT OF GOVERNMENT!

3.) I believe in science- Stem Cells/Evolution etc...

4.) I don't think ISRAEL is ALWAYS RIGHT.

5.) I don't think we should gut Medicare/Medicaid

6.) I don't think Oil Companies need Billions in Tax Breaks

7.) I think being Mock DROWNED is TORTURE.

8.) I think being an "elitist" or "Academic" is a compliment not a SLUR.

Tell me if you need more I can go all day.

But seeing as how the vast majority of blacks HAVE JOBS AND PAY TAXES.

It must be something else...

In 10 years you'll wonder why Latinos don't vote Republican either

I think in two years you'll be wondering why black and Latinos can no longer be counted on to toe the party line.

Role models are hard to find, in the black communities all over the nation.

You might be able to stir up more controversy with the latter but you'll win more respect for the former.

No black people are going to listen to this ad and be so thankful for Herman Cain's condescension that they will consider voting for him. There isn't even any clear message being made at all except "Look how awful you are, vote for us".

Then they are lost. If they have lost confidence in themselves, then they have lost everything.

Liberalism is a modern plantation system in which "treats" are dispensed to a dependent population in exchange for votes. The "master" wants the "slave" to remain dependent to the politician for sustenance. The politician definately does not want the "slave" to become successful, as he will have no further need for the politician.

Wake up. Live free.

Positive role models, there are tons of black role models out there but not people you want kids following.
