Belafonte on Cain: ‘He knows very little’

News

Harry Belafonte doesn't like Herman Cain. In an interview with HLN's Joy Behar on Monday, the singer and political activist said of Cain, "[I]t’s very hard to comment on somebody who is so denied intelligence and certainly someone who is as denied a view of history such as he reveals. He knows very little."

A la Al Sharpton, Belafonte went on to attack Cain's standing as someone who can speak on the problems many black Americans face.

"Because he happened to have had good fortune, because he happened to have had a moment when he broke through – the moment someone blinked – does not make him the authority on the plight of people of color," he said.
