Is Cain’s race a problem?
In the still-continuing thread on Herman Cain’s controversial ad, reader Jerry Z. argues that, after the country’s disillusioning experience with Barack Obama, we simply cannot afford another black president.
UPDATE: Jerry Z.’s comment has set off quite a debate.
UPDATE, Oct. 28 1 a.m.: The debate continues. Be sure to see Cain’s amazing statement on affirmative action. He thinks that the increasing presence of blacks in higher education in this country has all been earned. He seems wholly unaware of the existence of systematic racial preferences in undergraduate and graduate education.
