WHO IS PREJUDICE NOW???

I have written about Herman Cane before. Still I seem to be one of the few that does. In all reality the man seems to be doing as good as any one in the polls. Still the media ignores him.

Is it possible that they simply don’t want another black man in the race. Maybe it is because he is totally black.

Perhaps they can back a half black man but can’t quiet stomach one that is fully black.

I for one find our lily-white press to be out to lunch on this one.

I am adding something that Tim Graham has written. I think he says in a much more diplomatic way than myself. I have never been accused of sugar-coating my feeling when it comes to this blog. With this in mind maybe Tim’s words will be easier to swallow.

Are Time and Mark Halperin Racist? Herman Cain Omitted Twice in GOP Oddsmaking
By Tim Graham | June 03, 2011 | 23:03

Twice in the last two weeks has Time magazine devoted a page to Mark Halperin’s oddsmaking on who will be the Republican nominee — the May 23 issue (page 35) and the June 6 issue (page 16). Twice, there’s been no mention of Herman Cain. The GOP cast of contenders is lily-white. This seems odd, since Cain participated in the first presidential debate on May 5 to high praise and formally announced on May 21. Are Time and Halperin racists? They can’t say they’re unaware that Cain is running.

They can’t say that Cain is too much of a long shot. In the first set of odds, Halperin put Michele Bachmann at 1,000-to-1. (The best odds in order were to Romney, Huckabee, Daniels, Pawlenty, Huntsman, Gingrich, and Palin, second to last at 60 to 1.) In the second set, Huckabee and Daniels were removed from the list, and Santorum (at 500 to 1) and Ron Paul (at 2,000 to 1) were added. Bachmann was still at 1,000 to 1. Halperin also added “Mystery Candidate” — but named those (Rick Perry, Chris Christie, Paul Ryan, and Jeb Bush.)

Time magazine should really have to explain this remarkable (double) oversight of a black Republican.

    I do not know much about the gentleman, but what I have heard, I do like. He seems to be an authentic candidate with some REAL credentials.

    Time magazine is not racist as much as it is obsolete. Racism is also obsolete, except for those, of all races, who find it to their advantage.
    BTW, Mr. Cain, with his talk of “the plantation”, is playing the race card.
    In a bike race, certain people take the lead, while the intended winner on the team waits until the proper time to make his move. I suspect that was what Hillary Clinton was doing in 2008 for BHO. I am not privy to the plans of the Republicans.
