Which is why a millionnaire African-American businessman, author and radio host has a professionally managed website sympathetic to the Tea Party devoted to fiscal conservatism. Sample headling: Credit rating of nation running $1 trillion in annual red ink strangely jeopardized:
You will hear from the media that the possible downgrade is the fault of Republicans who might once again demand spending cuts in exchange for raising the debt ceiling. Bolshevik! Your credit rating gets in trouble when you’re carrying too much debt and have no plan for paying it back. Sound familiar? The fiscal cliff deal did nothing to address the debt problem, and we can’t expect a golden credit rating forever when we operate like that.Very clear, very concise article. If this isn't Cain writing, it's someone who has slavishly copied his style.
Let's remember where America was in 1963, 50 years ago. The Jim Crow laws were still in effect, registering Africa-American voters was enough to get you killed, "whites only" restaurants and bars were common and legal. The transformation to today where miscengenation is everywhere, racial discrimination is outlawed unless you're discriminating in favour of African-Americans and Hispanics, and a white TV host refuses to utter the word "nigger" despite the demands of an African-American actor is nothing short of astonishing. So next time someone in the Guardian (I'm looking at you, Gary Younge) let's remember how far America has come in 50 years.
Google informs me that people who searched for Herman Cain also searched for Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul. If that doesn't indicate Cain being in what MSNBC would regard as the "whites-only zone" I don't know what would.
[For extra points, his website is hosted by CloudFlare and has very clean HTML, clearly maintained by someone who knows what he/she is doing; https works just fine; DNS shows very short TTLs and multiple IPs in the A records, which is associated a good dynamic configuration. Cain has clearly done his research and hired competent webmasters and hosting providers.]
