Atlanta, GA. Godfather's Pizza CEO and GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain has come to the conclusion that blacks are "over this first African-American president thing," but that they are, as a community, "brainwashed" into voting for Democrats.
When asked why this is the case, Mr Cain cited these examples of Democratic brainwashing:
"Well, first of all, the Democrats have always stood for civil rights, affirmative action, fair housing, equal employment opportunity, urban renewal, improving public education, supporting unions and of course all the social programs that many need to simply exist. This tends to brainwash them into thinking they should vote for them.
"We in the Republican party, however, have worked to counter this with a number of policies, like opposing affirmative action, doing away with social programs, making voting more difficult, crippling public education, busting unions and sending out pictures of Obama as a young chimp, sitting with his chimpanzee parents. None of this - none of this - has swayed the majority of black voters to vote Republican!
"So we are teaming up with Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck to encourage black voters to listen to our message and give the Republican party a try. Rush promises to play "Barack the Magic Negro" at least five times a day until our message of hope and equality sinks in. In the meantime, I will be reminding black voters that both my parents were black. I think Mr Obama is in trouble."
