Is Time magazine racist?

Twice in the last 2 weeks Time magazine has devoted a page to Mark Halperin's oddsmaking on who the GOP nominee will be. Twice they left Herman Cain off the list. They do have other longshots on the list, some of them not even officially running for president.

Are they racist in doing this?

    No, if this had happened in 2008 there would have been an uproar! Heck, if you disagree with Obama now, it's because you're a racist.

  • I don't think so Minnie but tell us just what your answer means. Do YOU happen to know why Cain
    was left off the list twice?
    Of course Halperin could just be a stupid uneducated journalist like most of the rest.

  • Didn't they write a story back in 2008 with the cover saying "Is your baby a racist?" with a photo of a white baby. I think so I remember Someone asking me that in a store because he saw I had a white baby. I think that Times could back up and rethink the way they write and be a little more open minded to the fact America is a melting pot..

  • If Herman Cain were a Democratic liberal, he would have been included.

  • – collapse
    Why don't you ask Time magazine why they leff Cain out ? Not much use asking here, we don't know why he was not included .

    i don't believe for one minute Time is racist . The question is asked by one of our resident conservatives to get the cabal's pot a-boiling .

  • Not sure about the racists part, but Time Magazine is DEFINITELY liberal and pro-Democrat! Remember that the next time you are reading an issue in the doctor's office, because anyone who actually subscribes to the magazine is wasting their money!! LOL
