*Herman Cain has simply been the topic of every political discussion lately; whether or not he is a viable candidate will be left up to the people. At any rate, a first time look into the life of the entrepreneur will be offered up to those who wonder about the man’s ethnic identity in all aspects of the phrase.
The half-hour news documentary will beg the question of what does it mean to be a black conservative? It will also offer an explanation of what the Republican calls “scams perpetrated on blacks” by liberal black leaders and of course the sex scandals.
Hosted by the Emmy-Award winning news journalist and former KTLA (Los Angeles) anchor, Emmett Miller, “The Curious Case of Citizen Cain” sets out to better understand what Cain and his new breed of black conservatism means to African-American voters and the broader political landscape; an area no one else has really questioned him about in his politics. BET News takes a look at Cain, a black man, who admits to avoiding the Civil Rights Movement, attacks the methods and motives of Jesse Jackson, Julian Bond, and Joseph Lowry, and openly embraces the Tea Party. The special also focuses on Cain deeply exploring his own black experience and how it has shaped him over time, from emerging out of nowhere to becoming the first black candidate in American political history to lead a Republican presidential field.
