Cain is correct. African-Americans pull the Democrat lever at elections even though Democrats are not working for their best interests. Whites, not Blacks, collect greatest share of public aid dollars. The welfare state is hindering African-Americans from succeeding; not helping. African-Americans needs jobs, low taxes and opportunity the same as white Americans. They have been brainwashed by the likes of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Maxine Waters and others.
Washington (CNN) — The one African-American running for the GOP presidential nomination said Wednesday the black community was ‘brainwashed’ for traditionally siding with liberal politicians.
“African-Americans have been brainwashed into not being open minded, not even considering a conservative point of view,” Cain said on CNN’s “The Situation Room” in an interview airing Wednesday between 5–7 p.m. ET. “I have received some of that same vitriol simply because I am running for the Republican nomination as a conservative. So it’s just brainwashing and people not being open minded, pure and simple.”
Cain went on to explain that his interactions with African Americans led him to be optimistic about his own chances with the demographic.
“This whole notion that all African-Americans are not going to vote for Obama is not necessarily true,” Cain said.
