Surging GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain was a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" last night, and opened up about all things political and personal. Cain talked about racism and the tea party. "My experience has been, there is no more a racist element in the tea party than there is in the general population at large," he said. "This is the biggest misperception."
Cain also discussed why he says "Black" and not "African American" and what his "calling" is:
Said Cain: "I identify as a 'black American' more so than an 'African American.' Yes, many of the slaves came from Africa, but my heritage is mostly here, in the United States."
Cain discussed his "calling": "My calling is to make a difference. And I have done this all my life...It took 12 years for this journey to unfold."
In the above video, he also commented on other GOP candidates in the field. Of Rep. Michele Bachmann and Gov. Rick Perry, he said: "When I listen to their answers to questions, most of the time they get off track."
