The front page of FoxNews.com right now:

Colin Powell dancing with two hiphop singers with the title:
"It's Hip to be Square."

This is a former general, a former Secretary of State, and this is how Fox News treats him for DARING to muse about endorsing Obama.

That's a former general, a former Secretary of State.

Look at it.

This man, who was willng to serve for our country, willing to go to war for country, was not willing to run for political office in this country because of what they would do to him and his family.

Fox News stoops to trying to paint him as a black/hip-hop/ni**ger

As a black person, I'm beyond offended, but not surprised.

But still, just look.

Thanks for the image, JohnAdams999!

EDIT:

Look, I know a lot of you guys don't like Powell and I respect that. I wouldn't vote for him. But the man has earned some respect as a former general and former Secretary of State.

To put up a photo of him with two black guys, the only intent is to insult him and ALL blacks by disrespecting them. It's blatant racism and no one should stand for it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
