Well get my smelling salts! Another woman has come forward to report her relationship with Herman Cain. Honestly, if the relationship was mutual, it is none of our business how many extra-marital affairs Cain has. What is our business is the number of women he has sexually harassed and dismissed his behavior with his cavalier comment of, “why not focus on all the women I did not sexually harass?”
There are so many things that I really despise about Cain, his misogyny, his homophobia, his dismissal of the poor and disenfranchised, but I think I also am frustrated that he identifies with the aggressor. He is a black man who works to re-enforce a white political power structure–what is that about?
I try to mitigate my anger about Cain by finding humor. Jay Smooth, is a multi-racial man, with a white mother and black father, much like our President. Smooth’s mock endorsement of Cain helped me laugh. I hope you will watch other videos by Smooth. He does a great job of addressing race and power. Click here to see the mock endorsement.
