Herman Cain, rising star, being targeted: The higher the monkey climbs, the more it is exposed to danger

In politics, rising stars are ambushed. Herman Cain, the rising star of the GOP presidential race, has been accused of sexual harassment back in the years when he was nobody. No surprise. Herman Cain should expect worse than sexual harassment allegations. His life is under a microscope, his words carefully analyzed.

The conservatives don’t know what to do: send a Mormon or another man of color to the White House. If he is elected as the GOP candidate against President Obama, what does that mean for race relations in America?

From now until the end of the Republican primaries, many things can happen. Mr. Cain should wear a bulletproof vest every day. America has an history that no one should forget. As the Creole of Sierra Leone say, “The higher the monkey climbs, the more it is exposed to danger.”
