Prompted by conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer in a television interview, Cain answered yes to the question of whether "race [and] being a strong black conservative has anything to do with the fact you've been so charged."

However, I cannot think of anytime when President Obama or AG Holder have done so. Could you offer some specific instances?
On the "race card" debate, I personally find the matter a convenient conservative political correctness ploy to shut down any discussion of possible racism that does not rise to the level of people showing up in white robes and burning crosses. In other words by use of "the 'race card' card", only extremely serious displays of racism are fair to even discuss while less severe displays of racism get a free pass.
