Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain thinks the black community tends to support Democratic candidates because they have been brainwashed.

“African-Americans have been brainwashed into not being open minded, not even considering a conservative point of view,” Cain said Wednesday 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.”
