For some reason, this particular ploy of right-wing-racist progandists
- the asking of a far-reaching, totally-irrelevant or even
totally-meaningless question, as though its subject were something of
serious important that any right-thinking (white) American owes it to
himself to give serious thought to - really grinds my gears.

He doesn't want Cain to be the Republican candidate for President. So,
he poses a rhetorical question that denigrates every black man who
ever attained a position of power in the entire history of the world,
including, needless to say, the infamous neo-Hitler, the wild black
Irishman, O'Bama, even though he doesn't rule and hardly governs.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
