Time Magazine Racist Against Blacks

June 5, 2011

At a time when the issue of racism is again being flamed by the left wing it is a bit ugly to see one of the major leftist mouthpieces ignore a black presidential candidate. Herman Cain is black, and oh yes, a conservative.

He is also invisible to a prime organ of Democrat newsprint.

Here is a brief piece I saw:

Are Time and Mark Halperin Racist? Herman Cain Omitted Twice in GOP Oddsmaking

Twice in the last two weeks has Time magazine devoted a page to Mark Halperin’s oddsmaking on who will be the Republican nominee — the May 23 issue (page 35) and the June 6 issue (page 16). Twice, there’s been no mention of Herman Cain. The GOP cast of contenders is lily-white. This seems odd, since Cain participated in the first presidential debate on May 5 to high praise and formally announced on May 21. Are Time and Halperin racists? They can’t say they’re unaware that Cain is running.

They can’t say that Cain is too much of a long shot. In the first set of odds, Halperin put Michele Bachmann at 1,000-to-1. (The best odds in order were to Romney, Huckabee, Daniels, Pawlenty, Huntsman, Gingrich, and Palin, second to last at 60 to 1.) In the second set, Huckabee and Daniels were removed from the list, and Santorum (at 500 to 1) and Ron Paul (at 2,000 to 1) were added. Bachmann was still at 1,000 to 1.  Halperin also added “Mystery Candidate” — but named those (Rick Perry, Chris Christie, Paul Ryan, and Jeb Bush.)

Time magazine should really have to explain this remarkable (double) oversight of a black Republican.
