Raising Cain

It had to happen, I guess. Prominent liberals, such as MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell and “the Rev.” Al Sharpton, are claiming that Herman Cain isn’t authentically black. Why? During the Civil Rights era Cain’s father and mother worked blue-collar jobs to build a better future for the family and told him never to consider himself a victim. Cain, for his part, ran a successful national business, was a member of the Federal Reserve, bested Bill Clinton in a debate, wrote at least one book, and tells people to be responsible for themselves.

I think O’Donnell and Sharpton just insulted black people.
