Dying in Pharaoh's Land: On the Death of Herman Cain
Herman Cain died an utterly Black death, in pursuit of approval from the White gaze.
So the pressure for success can put a good strain/
On a friend you call best, and yes it could bring/
Out the worst in every person, even the good and sane/
Although we rehearsed it, it just ain’t the same/
— Jay-Z, “Black Republicans”
