Blacks, Hispanics, disenfranchised whites, everybody who has ever been maligned by The Man; you can take a deep breath and relax now, as Herman Cain has declared the war on Civil Rights has been won.
That’s right — you have overcome.
You have your seat at the table, next to your elite brethren. You have your slice of the American pie.
Let us all sign the online petition for the official song of the Civil Rights Movement, “We Shall Overcome,” to be replaced with the more accurate “Movin’ On Up”:
Well, we’re movin on up,
To the east side.
To a deluxe apartment in the sky.
Movin on up
To the east side.
We finally got a piece of the pie.
Fish don’t fry in the kitchen;
Beans don’t burn on the grill.
Took a whole lotta tryin’
Just to get up that hill.
Now we’re up in the big leagues
Gettin’ our turn at bat.
As long as we live, it’s you and me baby
There ain’t nothin wrong with that.
Now you may want to consider the source, Herman Cain, was the former Republican presidential candidate poised to be a front-runner against President Obama — that is, until the skeletons sashayed out of his closet.
It seemed that so many women accused Herman Cain of trying to get it on that even Tiger Woods shook his head. Or, perhaps, Tiger Woods was shaking his head about the fact that Cain managed to find alleged mistresses homelier than his own. Ummm. Sexy.
Cain also mentioned that in the age of Trayon Martin, and hell, the current Republican-led fight for blacks to show identification to vote in Texas, the NAACP is no longer relevant.
On the very relevant and accurate “Fox and Friends,” Cain stated:
“It’s looking for its relevance in all of the wrong places. There used to be a war. And we won that war on civil rights. Are there some battles? Yes, there will always be. I believe that their new focus should be economic development, but they have not made that transition, so they have simply lost their relevance.”
Herman Cain is someone who should know a thing or two about losing relevance. In this case, he walks the talk.
