GOP hopeful Herman Cain admits he refused pizza to black neighborhood
In a startling admission recently, Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain, the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, said that he would apply his experience in business to a potential job in the White House: specifically, his experience in denying pizza deliveries to a black neighborhood in Omaha, Nebraska.
Cain, who is himself black, said that because the neighborhood was violent he refused to send delivery drivers there, and that he'd apply the same logic to his foreign policy decisions.
“When I first became president of Godfather’s Pizza, there was a very dangerous part of town in the black community where I wouldn’t allow my restaurants to deliver because we had kids beat, robbed,” he reportedly said.
"And I said ‘if I won’t send my son over there, I’m not going to send someone else’s son or daughter over there.’ Last week in Omaha, Nebraska, that same neighborhood that I wouldn’t deliver in — that they are delivering in now — a Pizza Hut driver was killed."
Wait for it ....
