Onward and Upward With Racial Tolerance


In my original post, I referred to Herman Cain and other black conservatives as 'race minstrels' and 'mascots' for the White conservative imagination. I stand by this observation.

Whole thing here, original post here, link via former Reason intern Amanda Carey. Note that A) the author is black (or at least claims to be), and B) writes under a (fanciful!) pseudonym.

Google Search results for "Herman Cain" and "lawn jockey" here. Radley Balko wrote last fall about "Juan Williams, Lawn Jockeys, and the Clarence Thomas Rule."
