Interestingly enough, all of the “African-American” leftists who keep beating up on Herman, other than the “Rev” Al Sharpton, have been a little on the light side of black. It isn’t a big secret that darker blacks have been treated as sub-human to lighter blacks in history and nor is it a big secret that upper elite progressives treat dark skinned blacks as less, then throw in a conservative and you have some serious racism going on from the party that started the KKK – the Democrats. I am sure when Biden talked about how articulate and clean Obama was, the left tittered and shook their heads, because Obama is, and because he is lighter, he becomes “acceptable” to the left. The bitch, and there is no other word for her, that was brought on MSNBC to talk about how Herman “knows his place” is one of those light-skinned blacks, though it’s questionable if she is black at all, and as Democrats always do, she projected onto Herman’s followers that which she and her fellow travelers do, Practice Skin Deep Discrimination.
We all know about racism, about whites discriminating against blacks. The prevelance of “colorism” — black on black discrimination, is less known, but it’s an open secret in the black community.
Imagine this. You’re asked to look at photos of faces and then give them a score of 1 to 5 to rate how smart you think the people in the photographs are. But there’s a trick.
Mixed in with the 60 photos are pictures of the same person, but the photos are altered to make the person look darker skinned. Will that affect whether someone is rated smart? You bet.
There is still plenty of discrimination by skin color in this world, and in test after test like this one, the lighter-skinned people are perceived to be smarter, wealthier, even happier. It may surprise you that among those who rated differently, both whites and blacks give lower scores to people with darker skin. In our test, on average, the lighter faces were rated smarter.
Here’s a very odd bit of “analysis.” The black man we’re talking about has been director of a Federal Reserve Bank, a CEO, and now aspires to be President.
That’s the “place” he knows he’s supposed to be in? He’s internalized racism so much, his ego has been so reduced by white racism, his sense of self-worth so diminished, that he now sees himself as the President of the United States of America?
Black men who “know their place” in our society know that place to be Commander in Chief?
I guess we must be doing something wrong, then.
This is why I attribute the belief to her (rather than follow her in ventriloquizing her beliefs into others’ mouths). It makes no sense.
She wants to call him an Uncle Tom and/or “uppity” — incompatible, yes, but she wants to hang some racial slur on him. And she finds that in her own fucking mind.
Not in the Tea Party’s mind. And not in Herman Cain’s mind, either.
So let me get this straight: The left now feels it can resort to racial slurs against black men it doesn’t like by simply claiming the black man’s supporters — you know, the people who like him — are thinking these obnoxiously racist retrograde thoughts.
Since the time of slavery, the lighter slaves were brought into the house while the darker ones worked the crops. The lighter blacks were acceptable to Hollywood in the 30’s and 40s for nicer parts while the dark blacks were made the maids and the butlers. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, Jr. were much too dark for the Democrat Party to elevate to President, but Barack Hussein Obama was the perfect shade for the progressive elites to get behind. Those progressives couldn’t care less that Herman is conservative, they are bothered by the color of his skin. I look forward to Herman getting the nomination and putting those racists front and center, and finally getting this oldest of hidden racisms out in the open for all of America to see.
