It's obvious they're coming kind of late to this, especially now that he's dropped out, but BET will broadcast the documentary The Curious Case of Citizen Cain  this Thursday on the network at 9PM (8PM Central).

The 30 minute (only half an hour?) show, which will include an interview with Cain, will pose the question to Cain "what does it mean to be a black conservative?" and will focus on his politics, his upbringing and, of course, the sex scandals (how could it not????).

The network claims the show will "set out to better understand what Cain and his new breed of black conservatism means to African-American voters and the broader political landscape; an area no one else has really questioned him about in his politics."

The program will also look at Cain "who admits to avoiding the Civil Rights Movement, attacks the methods and motives of Jesse Jackson, Julian Bond, and Joseph Lowry, and openly embraces the Tea Party" and will  "deeply explore his own black experience and how it has shaped him over time, from emerging out of nowhere to becoming the first black candidate in American political history to lead a Republican presidential field."

WOW! All that in just 30 minutes?
