Herman Cain: ‘Growing Up in the Segregated South, I am Not Mad at America’
HERMAN CAIN: When I was growing up, we didn’t have a lot of money. I can remember my dad could only give my brother and I money to eat in the school cafeteria one day a week, on Fridays, and it was 25 cents.
SEAN HANNITY: Pizza day.
CAIN: No, hot dog, apple and a carton of milk.
HANNITY: Oh sorry,
CAIN: It wasn’t even pizza day. And so we would saying, you know, it would be nice to make $20,000 a year. Why? I had read somewhere that if make $10,000 a year, you could qualify for an American Express card. I wanted two of them. That was my material lifelong American dream. And I’ll never forget the day that boss at the (INAUDIBLE) laboratory, when I was a ballistics analyst, called me in and said you’re getting promoted, we’re creating a new supervisor and mathematician position, you going to get promoted because you got your master’s degree, you’ve done a great job.
