We live in a democratic country called America where we are given unalienable rights, individual freedoms and liberties to live our lives the way we deem fit. Americans have the freedom to choose what they say, write, their religion and which political party or movement they support: Republican, Democrat, Independent, Tea Party, etc.
But for black Americans the choice of political party appears predestined. It seems liberals but more specifically black liberals have carved in the ten black commandments that “thou shall never be a Republican.” These same black liberals also refuse to submit to the fact that not all blacks think alike.
With black conservatives like Congressman Allen West, Congressman Tim Scott and Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain debunking this insulting stereotype, many black liberals have resorted to racist name calling to protect the myth that Democrat policies help blacks. Cain has been target number one on their list.
Last week I wrote about DL Hughley's racist tweets about Cain only to be tipped off this week by a Twitter follower, who emailed me some racially charged tweets by black comedian Michael Colyar and CNN’s Roland Martin.
Colyar called Cain a “Modern Day Uncle Tom” and tweeted Cain “acted like Uncle Remus.” Both are fictional characters, who portray dutiful, docile slaves in Uncle Toms Cabin and Tales of Uncle Remus respectively. Both are considered demeaning, vile names to call a black person today. You can connect the dots but Colyar is reducing Cain to nothing more than a slave of the GOP, rather than acknowledging him as a black man with different political beliefs and ideas than Colyar.
Roland Martin and some of his followers thought Cain needed a black intervention and if he ate some BBQ and listened to some black music along with attending a Million Man March, Cain would suddenly discover his true blackness and his “real home” in the Democrat party.
