The High Tech Lynching of Hermain Cain and The Hypocrisy of the So-Called Black Community

I’m trying to understand this.  How is it that for years now I’ve been accused of not being “black” anymore because I normally don’t vote for democrats, or because I disagree with this President and his administration’s policies, because I often accuse the black community to be just as racist to whites and others yet when a brother like Herman Cain is being attacked the community doesn’t speak out in unity when the situation warrants it?

This outstanding American black man (who I do not agree with on some points I might add but still support) is being excoriated in the media right now by allegations that have yet to be substantiated and the support from the black community has been cheap and silent at best. 

Are brothers like Mr. Cain and I not black because we decided to be independent thinkers, vote for who we see fit to vote for, voice a difference of opinion on what the role of government should be, and interpret the rules of freedom in this country differently than some of the black community or do we have to be like Dr. Cornell West (whom I still have respect for because of the work he has done) and have this hate for the so-called “white” community because of the past wrongs that occurred in our nation’s history against people of color?

Oh, I get it, you can only be black if you agree with what the majority of the black community says or does, right?  Isn’t that type of behavior tantamount to self enslavement?  Don’t I have the right to my own way of thinking that has been endowed to me by God and the Constitution of this great land?

Now to be honest, I’m just pointing out the hypocrisy because I really don’t give a rip if people think I’m black enough or not or what people think about my views because the last time I checked “Iz free”, “Iz a grown man”  but when the black community cajols me and others for not supporting the so-called “black issues” cannot come together and support this brother who has defied many odds (and yes racism), who has rose from obscurity to become the CEO and COO of some of the most prominent companies in this country, has made no excuses for being in lack when he was young, has helped numerous young black men/women in their ascent in the business world, and has done nothing but become a successful (and yes black) American-made business man I must point out the hypocrisy that I see. 

Our community reveres and lay prostrate worshiping many of the foul-mouthed artists and sports entertainers from our community whose soul goal is for us to support them by buying their latest CD or latest shoe yet cannot seem to support (whether they agree with him or not) this brother who has actually done and become what most of our community used to consider being a success and that is succeed in business or so-called “white man’s world”.

Whether you agree with Mr. Cain’s stance on political or social issues our community, according to the “unwritten but highly verbalized black rule of living life” the black community should be outraged at how the media has treated this brother and should be supporting him because he is by the very definition, black.

If this brother was a liberal the race industry professionals like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would be on every television show talking about how Mr. Cain is being “lynched” because he’s black yet I haven’t heard a peep (and don’t expect to) from those leeches of the black community (that’s right, I said it!)

The treatment of Herman Cain and other conservatives (including myself) by the “lamestream” media and the majority of our own black community just because we have a different point of view is the highest form of hypocrisy.

I’ve been told over and over again that I must support the black things, the black issues, the black this, the black that and yet if I get off of the black plantation and think for myself I get my race card pulled!

Well, I tell you what, you can have your card back.  I don’t want or need it!

As I’ve said before, I became a God-fearing, Jesus-freak approximately six years ago and I traded my black card in for a Jesus card which has much better privileges, a higher rate of return for the investment that I made in it (I just had to accept it), came with a book of instruction on how to use it, and does not have all of the strings attached to it.

I am a Christian, an American, a free-thinker and a black man who challenges racism when confronted with it, defends those that cannot defend themselves from it, but I’m also a man who believes that too many people both white and black continually use the issue of race to keep us fighting each other to ALL of our peril and many even make a buck from it or use it to achieve a higher political plane for themselves.

God made us all differently with unique gifts, talents, desires, dreams, goals, etc., and for anyone to tell me that I have to submit and drink the kool-aid of the “black elites” that tell me that I have to support black folk who are just as racist as racist white folk just because I’m black is laughable to me. Just look at how we treat the various shades of color that exist within the black race itself. 

I remember how many people in our community were denegrated and still are because they were “high yella” or “too black”, or their hair was not a “good enough grade”, or the funniest of all “talks too white” (what the heck does that mean?) 

It’s funny how we are now all on the side of the mostly Hispanic, illegal immigrant when all across this nation in black neighborhoods they are talked about worse than a dog yet in front of the television camera so-called representatives of the black community act like we have always gotten along with and fought for their rights.

I know that these words are tough but I feel that they are needed because many in our community continue to cry racism at every turn yet say nothing when a racist comment is perpertrated in our own neighborhoods towards persons of another color so I had to take this time to point out the hypocrisy that I see on many of the black folk’s Facebook pages, blogs, media sites that have always told us to support “black” no matter what yet brother Herman is floating out in the wind without nary a word from most of the black community!

Let’s say that you had a brain condition that you were going to die from without surgery and you had two brain surgeons to pick from one who is black and average or white and pretty extraordinary and the top of the field who would you pick.? Well many in the black community that have been at odds with me over the years because I cannot stand this way of thinking by their own logic would have to pick the black average surgeon instead of the one that happened to be white and at the top of his field because they’re always telling me that I have to always support the “black” man first when the decision should be based on what the doctor’s merits are and what is best for that particular patient and his family is. 

Also, I don’t subscribe to this way of thinking because as a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ I know that this divisive way of thinking goes against His teachings found in the Holy Bible and is by it’s very nature inherently sinful and overall destructive.

In conclusion, I must reiterate that I really do not subscribe to the way of thinking that I’ve spoken of in the article that I must support everything black even though I do try to support black entrepeneurs, businesses, students, neighborhoods as I would any person that is putting in hard work and sacrificing to succeed when I can because the experiences that I had in my community helped shape me into the man that I am today but it does not and will not define me or hold me captive and I will never let another man be it black, white or other make decisions for me that the Lord Jesus Christ has given me the ability to make for myself.

Be blessed!

  1. Sir, while I can agree with you up to a point there are falicies in your argument. I was once accused of doing something very familiar when I was in the Army. The lady was very believable and my life at the time led credibility to the charges but I did not do it. I went through two years of hell, dirty looks, invesigation after invesigation, article 32 hearing, and it even put a strain on my marriage for something that I didn’t do. Did I deserve all of that? No, I didn’t because I didn’t do what I was charged with yet I was paying a supreme price for it. Eventually the truth came out and I was vindicated because the woman was found to have done this before and it was found out that she had an axe to grind with me that i didn’t even know about. What if this were you? Wouldn’t you want the benefit of the doubt to be afforded to you. Also, I need you to play poker with if you can read body movements that well because I was told that I looked guilty by investigators that had to come back and apologize when the truth in my case was finally brought about. Almost 20 years later and people that had me pegged wrong still cannot look me in the eye because they believed something about me that was not true but that, however, was not and is not the totality of the piece. I also reserve my irritationof the so-called black community for being duplicitous in their treatment of Mr. Cain and other black conservatives and not calling out the President when he or someone in his administration misleads we the people i.e., Eric Holder. It amazes me how the black community will charge a white or other person as guilty of a thing but when this president or another black person does the SAME thing they cannot or will not be held accountable. That is NOT what the pioneers of the Civil Rights movement marched and sometimes gave their life for dear brother so I respectfully have to disagree with you for I know how easily someone or a group of people can come forward with allegations against an individual or a group of individuals that later are found to be untrue but in many cases the damage has been done and there are few if no do over’s in this life. Before I go, I would like to know what your opinion will be when Ms. Bialek(sp)’s history (worked for a cbs affiliate) of deceitful behavior comes to the forefront as it the story is still developing on that. Co-workers of hers are beginning to come forth with information that will shoot holes in her story and still even though the NRA has released the other “victims” from their confidentiality agreements they still choose not to come forward with details because they know that once they speak on videotape they can be held accountable under oath and if they have embellished or lied it will come out as it did in my case. Thank you for the comment sir and have a Jesus-filled day!
