Former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain said Tuesday that the media is attacking Ben Carson because he is a black conservative.
“Ben Carson is not only a conservative, he is a conservative who happens to be black,” he said of the Republican White House hopeful, according to The Daily Beast.
“There is only one group of people liberals hate worse than conservatives, and that’s conservatives who happen to be black,” Cain said.
“The reason for that is real simple,” added Cain, who led the GOP primary in the last cycle for a brief period of time. “They resent conservatives who happen to be black for leaving the Democratic plantation. And you can quote me on that.”
