"'Barack Obama is more of an international', Cain said. “I think he’s out of the mainstream and always has been. Look, he was raised in Kenya, his mother was white from Kansas and her family had an influence on him, it’s true, but his dad was Kenyan, and when he was going to school he got a lot of fellowships, scholarships, he stayed in the academic environment for a long time. He spent most of his career as an intellectual.' Indonesia, Kenya, Whatever. I left unasked the question of whether it’s more disreputable to be Kenyan or to be an intellectual (and let us pity those suffering Kenyan intellectuals). But I suggested to Cain that while Obama had, in fact, spent four years of his youth abroad, it was in Indonesia, not Kenya. To which Cain, who has dallied with the fading phenomenon known as 'birtherism,' responded, 'Yeah, Indonesia.'"
I got this version of the Bloomberg interview from a Black Conservative blog, Booker Rising. Even Black Conservatives are upset with what Herman Cain said. It as if he has to renounce his Blackness to be accepted as a American. The ignorance he shows is stunning. The President grew up in Indonesia and WAS BORN in Hawaii. He only went to Kenya as a adult. If he has any bias to what the British did to Kenyans he shows none. They weren't exacatly Santa over there. During the Mau-Mau rebellion 150 Colonist died and anywhere from 30,000 to 300,000 Black Kenyans died. They tried to make their own guns but were unsuccessful, you see it was illegal for Blacks to own guns then. They fought with sticks, spears, and wooden guns. So if Kenyans are pissed with the British they have a damn good reason to be. Then Herman tries to say that the President isn't even a Black American because his family didn't have slave roots. His Great - Grandfather was a slave in Kenya. They even made him adopt the last name Johnson since they didn't care about African names.
Herman even the Black Republicans don't like you.
