Cornell Belcher Takes on Herman Cain’s Rhetoric on CNN

Cornell Belcher unloads on Herman Cain’s “brainwash” statement…

Bad quality – but the enitre broadcast segment. Good back and forth with Ari Fleischer.

Belcher hits the nail on the head – but I wish he had come at it a little differently. The real issue is WHO Cain is playing to and WHY. And why would that audience support Cain’s regurgitation of racist right wing talking points?

Cain – Black Folks are Brainwashed!

The Herminator Lawn Jockey is at it again.

He is making the very bad assumption that because he donned that Jockey Suit and trotted out there on the Tea Party’s Lawn…

That a large percentage of black folks are brain damaged enough to want to be out there with him…

T’aint so.

Black folks do support social conservatism, and oppose Gay Marriage by a higher percentage than the majority population. A number of social conservative positions. The problem is social conservatives marriage with the bigots and whack jobs of the Tea Bagger led Republican Party. Seems you can’t get common sense on one, without the racism of the other.

Cain: Black community ‘brainwashed’ into voting for Dems

The one African-American running for the GOP presidential nomination said Wednesday the black community was ‘brainwashed’ for traditionally siding with liberal politicians.

“African-Americans have been brainwashed into not being open minded, not even considering a conservative point of view,” Cain said on CNN’s “The Situation Room” in an interview airing Wednesday between 5-7 p.m. ET. “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.”

Cain went on to explain that his interactions with African Americans led him to be optimistic about his own chances with the demographic.

“This whole notion that all African-Americans are not going to vote for Obama is not necessarily true,” Cain said.

He continued, “I believe a third [of African-Americans] would vote for me, based on my own anecdotal feedback. Not vote for me because I’m black but because of my policies.”

Cain also weighed in on the recent chatter surrounding Chris Christie, saying the recent reports the New Jersey governor is reconsidering a run for president were hurting the electorate.

“It’s not insulting as much as it is a disservice to the American people,” Cain said. “Chris Christie has been saying for a long time he’s not interested in running. The media is trying to create a story by sucking Chris Christie into race, just like they made a story by sucking Rick Perry into the race.”

Cain said the media should focus on the candidates who have already declared their candidacy to give voters a better idea of the field.

The New Jim Crow – Media Images of Black Folks

This new book discusses the media portrayal of black folks as a conduit to a continual legacy of racism in America. The imagery is often subtle, and manipulates thinking about race.

Hat Tip – The Grio

Burrell calls the marketing of the myth of Black Inferiority to justify slavery within a democracy “one of the greatest propaganda campaigns of all time.” In BRAINWASHED he shows how the torturous enslavement and indoctrination of a people resulted in the powerful, all-pervasive, mass-media driven brainwashing that impacts African American lives even today. The BI brainwashing campaign may be more subtle than in the past, given that a black First Family occupies the White House, but nonetheless, it exists.

In a volume both instructive and enlightening, Burrell draws on his unique experience of over four decades in the ad industry, where he coined the memorable phrase, “Black people are not dark-skinned white people.” To complement the narrative’s broad historical perspective, the book boasts a riveting 8-page color insert, a dramatic visual history of Black Inferiority propaganda and how blacks “pushed back” against the brainwash. It “reminds us of how far we’ve come and how far we’ve yet to go,” says Burrell.

Ad exec Tom Burrell says America has been ‘brainwashed’ about blacks

Ad executive Tom Burrell has seen first-hand how images can influence consumer thoughts and behaviors.

He founded Burrell Communications Group in 1971 and has worked to promote positive and realistic images of African-Americans ever since.

His new book, Brainwashed: Challenging the Myth of Black Inferiority, examines how negative images and stereotypes have impacted America’s view of African-Americans.

“If you give people negative images…then they’re going to internalize those images,” Burrell said.


“By portraying it constantly on the screen and on the tube, you take the reality of one and you make it a reality for millions.”

Burrell says he cringes when he watches daytime court tv shows or movies like Precious and The Blind Side, because he says the portrayals of African-Americans are troubling.

“Look at Precious, the casting…all of the misfits, all of the pathological characters are dark-skinned,” Burrell said. “All of the good people, the saviors are at least half-white. If it is not intentional, it is certainly insensitive.”

In Burrell’s book, he outlines how blacks have devalued their own self-worth and how that has negatively impacted their education, health and spending habits.

Burrell says slavery is the historical root of many problems but not the only cause.

“Today, African-Americans have become accomplices to this ‘brainwashing’ of inferiority,” said Burrell who describes the work of filmmaker Tyler Perry as “egregious.” “When a respected, talented black person puts [negative images] out, they automatically gain more acceptability.”
