Herman Cain had another great interview – this time on Hannity. Both Harry Belafonte and Cornell West have attacked Cain lately because of his comments yesterday that racism doesn’t really matter that much anymore. Cain contends that people need to work hard and created opportunities for themselves. That didn’t sit well with Belafonte who said that Cain was a ‘totally false bad apple in the black community’ and Cornell West also responded by saying that Cain needs to ‘get of the symbolic crack pipe’. To West, Cain simply notes that he’s been in the real world while West has been in academia too long. To Belafonte he says:
I left the Democrat plantation a long time ago. And all that they try to do when someone like – and I’m not the only black person out there that shares these conservative views – the only tactic that they have to try and intimidate me and shut me up is to call me names and this sorta thing. It just simply won’t work.
I love it. Cain speaks his mind and hits right back at those attacking him for being black and conservative. As I suggested earlier today, he has people like Al Sharpton and Cornell West worried and this is just more reason for me to vote Cain in 2012. He’s like a wrecking ball to their lies.
Here’s the full interview:
