Herman Cain

To borrow from Elon White. Herman Cain prompts the tears of our ancestors.

I also hope he marks the end of the first generation of post-affirmative action African American leaders like Justice Clarence Thomas who not only appear to lack judgment regarding gender issues but also do downright strange things.

Politico gave Mr. Cain 10! days notice and all he could come up with is: The story is done. It was/was not a termination settlement.

Certainly they are not the only fools around. MF Global’s Jon Corzine comes to mind. Nonetheless, African Americans suffer more powerfully both individually and collective from these departures from reason.

I guess we can thank Mr. Cain for reviving the surreal.
