Herman Cain on Racism: No Big Whoop Anymore!

by at .

Presidential candidate Herman Cain will never be accused of mincing words ... or being a cliche. The African-American businessman recently raised eyebrows with some blunt comments on racism ... and how people need to get over it.

"I don't have a lot of patience for people who want to blame racism on the fact that some people don't make in America," he said Fox News' Hannity.

Here's Cain's interview from last night on this and other topics:

The Republican claimed that his academic and business achievements were "walking proof" that racism doesn't hold people back if they don't let it.

"I don't believe racism today holds anybody back in a big way," he said.

Cain also reiterated his attacks on Wall Street protesters from last week, accusing them of being jealous and calling the whole thing a distraction.

"I believe this a coordinated effort of the unions and Obama supporters to distract the American people" from failed administration policies.

Cain characterizes the movement as "class warfare," "Un-American" and petty. "If you don't have a job and you're not rich, blame yourself," he said.

Despite never having held elected office, the Hermanator has lit a fire under GOP voters, surging in recent polls. What do you think of Cain?
