#1 As usreal - excellent inline commentary Fred.

#2 Black or white. That's all the left seems to be able to see.

I couldn't care less. I notice if someone is black about as soon as I notice if someone is short, tall, male, female, old, young, whatever.

Herman's got a pair, he's not stupid, and he seems to be looking for a solution rather than an angle, which is better than I can say for 90% of Obean and his Conveniently Clueless Clique.

And unless Romney does something better than just try to look like Mr. Average Conservative, Cain's got my vote.

Unless Sarah runs, of course. Said only partly in jest . . . .

#3 A trail balloon for focus anti-Cain campaign: "He's uncle Tom".

#4 A spy novel from the '60s had a great line about race. "The only thing race can help is in identification."

That's it. If there are two guys with the same name and one is black, the other white, knowing the race of the guy you're looking for helps other than that, not so much.

#5 They might get better ratings if they changed the name to the Mr. Ed Show. That's a sign of respect in the south.

#8 Yep, gr(o)m. Uncle Tom, oreo, race traitor, etc. He's making the race hustlers and the perpetual-victim class look bad, because he's living proof that it doesn't have to be that way. I was wondering why we haven't heard the usual slurs yet, but now that he's looking like a contender I've no doubt his critics react to the threat he represents in the most bilious and disgusting terms.

I've also no doubt that he's used to it, and can't wait to hear him fire back.

#9  They might get better ratings if they changed the name to the Mr. Ed Show
If memory serves, there was a previous show with a similiar name, centered around a talking horse. but in THAT show the words came out the head end, unlike the current rendition.

#12 Dr. James Peterson, director of Africana studies at Lehigh University, explained that "break" is a racist verb, "a term that was used to destroy, mentally and physically, slaves."
So what would happen if Cain were to say "When I run against Obama, I will BEAT him"? After all, slave owners used to beat their slaves,so isn't that racist?
On the other hand, it is likely that Cain is in fact the descendant of actual slaves, unlike Obama.

#15 There was a great line in the movie Undercover Brother in which the hero asked 'conspiracy brother' if he had a list of the words that sent him into these rants so he could avoid them in the future. I think someone should come up with such a list because it feels like any term used throughout history, if used during the times of slavery is now forbidden. Even words that sound too similar like niggardly are considered racist by morons and race-baiters.

Yjcmtsu. On second thought, I suppose he has.

#17 If Schultz sees racism everywhere and others don't, he ought to take a serious look at himself; maybe it's him that is the racist.

#18 Just for shits, I looked this word up in my actual two volume made of paper dictionary...the various definitions of this word filled two pages and its ancestory goes waaaay back.

This type of rhetoric is well and good for the back dive bars of the intertubes but for a TV head or other self called news agency it is malpractice.

Sorry, tired of the shitbirds, need a break.

The cricket team needs to break the duck.

Every time this show's theme song plays, an angel breaks wind.
