I can’t win

Posted on September 29, 2011. Filed under: Life, Politics | Tags: , , , , |

When Obama ran for the Presidency, the claim was that if you didn’t vote for him it was because he was black which made you a racist.  So I didn’t vote for Obama because I didn’t care for what he said he was going to do, but according to the liberals I’m a racist.

Now, Herman Cain comes on the scene and frankly I like what he says.  But because he is a black Republican, if I support him I’m a racist.

What?

If I oppose one black man for President I’m a racist; and if I support another black man I’m a racist.

Now what got me going on this was a comment by Janeane Garofalo: 

“People like Karl Rove liked to keep the racism very covert. And so Herman Cain provides this great opportunity say you can say ‘Look, this is not a racist, anti-immigrant, anti-female, anti-gay movement. Look we have a black man.'”

What ever happened to the concept of supporting and voting for the individual that has the best ideas?  

UPDATE:   In recent years I have repeatedly heard that only whites can be racist, that blacks are never racist.  But now (black) Democrat strategist Cornell Belcher has said that Herman Cain is a . . . (drumroll) . . . racist.  So now we’ve got a black Democrat calling a black Republican a racist.  I’m getting more confused by the minute.

That’s my 2 cents.
