These Herman Cain shagging women accusations.
Actually, in at least one case, an accusation of sexual assault on a white woman.
100 years ago they would have lynched Cain even for the allegation. Today they’re still mulling over whether he should be a Presidential candidate.
Yes, it’s still possible to see “black man as voracious sexual predator” (you might have to squint hard but you can see it in some of the reactions) but I would submit that this is an advance, that the place has got better over the past century.
