Herman Cain Interview with Lawrence O'Donnell

Mr. Lawrence Odonnell I salute you. Your interview with Herman

Cain was excellent. I know and understand the controversy. Some

say that you were too hard. Some said that you were too soft. I

think you deserve a raise or a Pulitzer prize of some kind of

commendation from MSNBC or NBC or your industry at large. I

understand that some thought you were out of place when you

asked him probing questions about his role in Vietnam era and

especially his role in the civil rights movement. All of these

were relevant questions and they were asked by the right person

or someone like you. The civil rights questions were especially

relevant. Who else could have asked probing questions except a

white interviewer. I will explain that soon.

“The Last Word” with Lawrence O’Donnell was just a BLIP on my

radar screen until I saw the interview with Herman Cain. Frankly

I am a Ed Shultz fan myself. No offense. Man I was glued to my

TV screen until about 8:38(the approximate time the interview

ended. This interview was so good you should have had him for

the whole hour. Man this was a master piece and I feel compelled

to write about it. Make no mistake that Mr. Cain did very well

too. I know you have taken some flack but as I said above Only a

white interviewer could have done this and that’s a shame. It is

reflective of the time we live in. Political correctness is not

always good. Please tell me that your Black friends and

associates privately agree with what I am saying for the most

part. If they don’t please have this conversation asap. I


Thank God the interviewer was with you. Can you imagine the

controversy if the interviewer had been Rev Al Sharpton for

instance? The controversy would have been magnified many times

over. I believe the good Reverend will agree. You don’t have to

be Black to ask another Black Man(candidate for Nomination for

the President of The United States} where he stands on an array

of issues. You have effectively move this nation beyond this

point and that’s is OK DOG GONE IT. It’s Painful to some but

it is necessary. No Pain no gain! It was refreshing.

I also agree with you because I came of age on the tail end of

the civil rights movement. This fact alone gives a person a

different perspective. I believe you were asking questions

through the prism of that era and that’s correct. I was

involved and many were involve from all races overtly and/or

covertly. Don’t be politically correct this time. You have a

right to ask the tough questions. I am glad you did not sugar

coat the questions. Aren’t we working towards a just and equal

society? Let’s move a step closer and you got the world talking

about it. And that’s a good thing.

Stand your ground. Many whites have given their lives

throughout the history of the United States so that my ancestors

could be free. This is one of the greatest untold stories in the

history of this great nation.Pay More attention to this fact.

Stand tall and be proud that you are on the right side Mr.

Lawrence O’Donnell. You made me proud. You do not need

anybody’s approval to ask tough questions to Herman Cain. He

wants to be President of The United States.

Let me let you in on a secret. I am willing to bet you that most

of your Black Brothers and Sisters agree with most of what I’ve

written here. You have to have been there(60s) to have the

perspective you have. It is more correct than not. This

uncomfortable reaction is the negative effects generational

racism has had on the American psyche. Perhaps it’s time to move

forward and you have given us all a head start by asking the

tough question. Thank you very much. Be Blessed

If Herman Cain wins the Republican nomination, would you vote for him as President? If Yes or No, Express yourself.
