He should have been a great example for all young black men to follow.

He was a perfect example of a self made man, despite the institutional racism we are told holds back minorities.

I hope he left an autobiography / recipe, that will help young black men
realize that there IS a way to achieve success, despite what the left tells them.

What does anyone want to bet that Herman Cain he will not be eulogized--or taken to lie in state, at the Rotunda--the same way that the late John Lewis has been?

It is fair to note that there is this difference: John Lewis fought for civil rights prior to the Civil Rights Act of 1964--and had accumulated several scars to prove it.

Still, I think this has much more to do with political correctness than with any objective reality.

I think even Herman Cain would tell you Lewis helped pave the way for people like Herman.

For what being a former Republican presidential candidate and former CEO? There is nothing here about political correctness it about political importance, and Herman Cain may he rest in peace just was not that politically important.

Assumptions. Did he not have activities directly before, and after the rally? If you are so positive it was the rally, and we all know you wouldn't politicize just for the sake of politicizing, then can you specify who transmitted it to him?
