Really, Herman Cain?
The staunch Republican took to his Twitter account Wednesday and tweeted, "House Negroes stand up!" Accompanying the words was an image of Dr. Ben Carson and attached to it was a link to Cain's website, in which he tries to explain that both he and Carson are called "house negroes" because they're successful Black men.
"Since the Michigan Chronicle, a historically Black Detroit-based newspaper, thinks Dr. Ben Carson is a 'house Negro', then I must be one also," Cain wrote on his website. "Because that's one of the names you get called by other Black people when you are a success at something, and you do not buy into 'Black group think,' or act and say what they want you to say."
Cain added: "If being called a 'house Negro' is what some of us must endure for succeeding in this nation and thinking for ourselves, then let all of the 'house Negroes' stand up and be counted."
Wow ... just ... wow.
And Cain got dragged to hell with these zero-chill reactions for his statement.
Come on, now.
You're going to have to hold this L, Herman.
When the GOAT laughing is used to eviscerate your statements.
