AlterNet Declares Herman Cain A Race Traitor, Monkey


In the article on Herman Cain’s speech, the author, who is also black, wholly ignores the premise of the speech, aka the facts, and goes into how Cain delivered the speech:

Herman Cain’s shtick is a version of race minstrelsy where he performs “authentic negritude” as wish fulfillment for White Conservative fantasies. Like the fountain at Lourdes, Cain in his designated role as black Conservative mascot, absolves the White racial reactionaries at CPAC of their sins. This is a refined performance that Black Conservatives have perfected over many decades and centuries of practice.

According the most enlightened author, Cain did everything he could to remind the crowd he was black, but at the same time, espoused all their beliefs.  And because they were all “White racial reactionaries,” they cheered.

It wasn’t about the fact that Herman Cain is a principled conservative.  No, we were all just trying to baptize ourselves in the aura of a black conservative so we can feel less awful about hating his skin so much.

Blacks must ”stay on the Dem Plantation.”
Native Americans must “stay on the Reservation.”
Women must ”stay in the job market.”
Hispanics must ”stay on the Hacienda.”
Gays must ”stay on parade.”

If a member of a minority dares to think for him/her self he/she is said to be either a ”house slave,” a ”monkey in the window,” a ”self-hating” black, Hispanic, woman or gay.
I have even (before Obama, naturally) heard them referred to as only ”partly black!”

All of these are ad hominums.
None of them address the salient points made by the independently thinking minority person.
That would be too hard.

YES, Alternet owes Godfather Pizza ex-CEO an apology.
