Working to make his 15 minutes of fame last for an hour, Herman Cain is leveraging his recent presidential run with numerous appearances on Fox News. Most of his appearances, unfortunately, are built on attacking black institutions and conspiring with racists to talk about what’s wrong with black people. His most recent target was the NAACP, as Cain attempted to argue that the institution has lost its relevance entirely.
Cain is not entirely off base, however. The NAACP has been taking money from companies like Wells Fargo, which was recently forced to pay millions for taking the homes of hundreds of thousands of black and brown people. The NAACP also choose empowerment mentors like video Vixen Melyssa Ford, which makes some wonder if the organization is more concerned with celebrity than with staying true to its purpose. The most damning move for the NAACP was when organization president Ben Jealous recently diverted from the wishes of the group’s membership by blanketly supporting President Obama’s announcement on gay marriage. A group of black pastors has rebelled against the organization’s leadership over the matter, and the internal divide continues to this day.

Not that anyone is surprised to hear him say this, but former GOP Presidential candidate Herman Cain isn’t so happy about the NAACP.
Appearing on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends”program, Cain was asked if the NAACP was still a civil rights organization, stating the group is floundering in wake of a supposed victory in the war of civil rights for Blacks in America. Cain then went on to describe the alleged irrelevance of the organization, which is a view that does happen to be in line with some African Americans who are concerned about the organization’s recent move toward supporting gay rights over the rights of African Americans.
