Herman Cain: NAACP Has ‘Lost Its Relevance’
Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said Friday that while he is grateful for the past work of the NAACP, the organization has “lost its relevance.”
“It’s looking for its relevance in all of the wrong places. There used to be a war. And we won that war on civil rights. Are there some battles? Yes, there will always be. I believe that their new focus should be economic development, but they have not made that transition, so they have simply lost their relevance,” Cain said on “Fox and Friends.”
The former GOP presidential hopeful also accused Obama of playing the “race card” and the “class warfare card” in his campaign.
