Herman Cain: Black community ‘brainwashed’ into supporting Democratic Party

(By Justin Sink, The Hill) - After saying Monday that he believes blacks are "over this first African-American president thing," Herman Cain said Wednesday that the black community was "brainwashed" into traditionally voting for Democratic lawmakers.

"African-Americans have been brainwashed into not being open minded, not even considering a conservative point of view," Cain said on an interview set to air Wednesday afternoon on CNN. "I have received some of that same vitriol simply because I am running for the Republican nomination as a conservative. So it's just brainwashing and people not being open minded, pure and simple."

On Monday, Cain blasted the president for his tone at a Congressional Black Caucus dinner, and predicted he would be able to garner at least one-third of black voters in a head-to-head general election.
