Al Sharpton Debates Whether Herman Cain is ‘Authentically Black’

Let me tell you a couple of the differences between Herman Cain and the un-reverent Al. Herman Cain knows America's past has some very bad elements to it but he has moved forward with the country and become a successful, wealthy man. Al not-so-Sharpton (thank you, Mark Levin!) continues to live in America's past, cannot move forward and has become a bitter, hateful, black man. - Reggie

Rev. Al Sharpton said Friday that no matter how “black” presidential candidate Herman Cain is, his conservative views are fundamentally at odds with the rest of the black community — and white people only like him because he says what they want to hear.

Speaking on his radio program with Professor Karen Hunter — the same person who accused the Associated Press of racism for dropping the g’s in its reporting of a President Barack Obama speech — Sharpton essentially accused Cain of forgetting his roots when it comes to his politics.

“How could anyone in their right mind — they grew up in the south and saw what they saw — and act like everyone that is unemployed and that is not rich did it to themselves?” Sharpton said. “So I would assume he is either socially ignorant or playing games to get votes, that he couldn’t possibly have grown up and come to that conclusion unless he was one or the other.”

Hunter protested the “playing games” idea, raising the specter of two prominent black conservatives generally abhorred by the traditionally liberal community: “He’s not Clarence Thomas, he’s not Alan Keyes, he’s not the stereotypical sellout black person who is pandering to white people. This man is married to a black woman, raising black kids and his mind is authentically black.”

“You ain’t got be Alan Keyes or Clarence Thomas to be wrong,” Sharpton cut in. “To stand up and say that the n-word doesn’t bother me two days after he called it insensitive…to say that people are causing their own unemployment and therefore they ain’t rich is wrong.”
