Isn't this playing the race card?
Herman Cain: 'They're Going to Come After Me More Viciously Than They Would a White Candidate'

Cain believes his audiences are a different story. "The voters, they hear my message first, not 'He could take it to Obama,' because they are more concerned about stopping Obama than taking it to Obama," he explained. "This is what I'm hearing and this is what I'm feeling. And the race card is going to be short-lived if Herman Cain gets the nomination."

But wouldn't liberals and Democrats still find a racially-based way to attack Cain? They certainly found a way to attack Clarence Thomas, the black, conservative Supreme Court justice.

"They're going to come after me more viciously than they would a white candidate," Cain responded.

2. Why treat incoherent babble from Fox Nation as legitimate?

4. It will never register in their narrow little minds and worldviews,
but NOBODY objected to Clarence Thomas because he was African-American. He was (and is) reviled because he's a smarmy, lowlife little do-nothing turd.

You could replace Clarence Thomas in that sentence with Jan Brewer and it would be just as accurate. Think about it.

5. Umm we attacked Clarence Thomas because he is not
qualified to be in his position and he sexually harrassed a lot of women. He is a pig who happens to be black.

Herman Cain is talking out of his ass. If he wants to spout the talking points of the Koch Brothers more power to him, then he better man up and get ready to be taken to task.

This is race baiting even asking the question, Faux is worried that Cain is weak so they are trying to put the story in peoples minds so it will happen.

6. Because its liberals who hate Barack Obama because he's black right?
Thomas belongs pushing up daisies, not on the Supreme court. A terrible job like pushing up daises, would teach him the meaning being an American.

7. I disliked his dumb ass before I even knew his race.
I didn't know he was Black until I saw his pic.

And as far as playing 'The Race Card', he just did, the dope.
