    Probably because he's a fiscal conservative and that tends to go against the Liberal theory on economics.
    Me I've read a few of his works and I respect his views on Economics.

    He's tired of being crapped on for his political beliefs as they pertain to his color and he's throwing it back.

    Bitter, Reg, oh so bitter. Whatever will Obama do, now that hes lost all those Fox watching conservatives who would have voted for him just for being black? Losing such a huge block of voters will totally devastate his campaign; he might as well throw in the towel now.

    Re: Thomas Sowell: Herman Cain More Black Than Barack Obama

    I'm really sick of this idea that there's a "More black" or "Less Black" or "Real Black" person.

    It's on the same level of stupidity as people who use the phrase "True American".

    There's no such thing and there never will be and to use that phrase to describe oneself, or another person is simply moronic.

    I hope you realize I was poking fun at what the OP posted. The more black, less black thing is really stupid.

    I'm white and have a black great-grandchild via adoption. Is he less black because his parents are white? What about my two 1/4 black great-grandchildren? How black are they?

    How about my 1/2 Hispanic great-grandchild? Her Dad and his family immigrated from South America around 1900 so he is a third generation American who speaks very little Spanish and has never been to the country his great-grandparents left.

    The only reason any of this is even discussed is because the US has a sinister past and old ideas die hard. I've lived all over the world and this sort of nonsense just does not happen in most first world countries.

    Maybe it is time America outgrew her prejudice and just treated people as people.

    My comments weren't directed at you at all

    You raise some good points.

    By the way I'm White and Born in Africa, am I African?

    We all know you're an albino Zulu. Maybe you should get an assegai instead of a halberd.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Ah not quite my friend, it's alot more complicated.

    I'm a born African, dual British Citizen. Who's also now a Canadian citizen.

    So technically speaking does that make me an Anglo-African Canadian?

    Nah we'll stick with the halberds, much more effective.
