OK, never mind what I said about Lawrence O’Donnell.
Fox News has an item about a possible Colin Powell endorsement of Sen. Barack Obama that relies on absolutely nothing but race to justify the speculation.
Under the headline “Hip-Hop Dancing Colin Powell Fuels Speculation He’ll Endorse Obama”— yes, you read that correctly! — Fox “reports” the following:
The normally staid former U.S. secretary of state and chairman of the Joint chiefs of staff performed an impromptu hip-hop dance alongside well-known rap stars Tuesday following a speech at a festival in London celebrating African-American music and fashion.
His address at the “Africa Rising” celebration inside London’s Royal Albert Hall fueled speculation that an endorsement of Barack Obama is imminent.
Fox provides absolutely no evidence that Powell “fueled” anything.
It quotes from a Powell speech at Royal Albert Hall that simply expresses pride in his African-American heritage. And for good measure, the “report” contains this line, which would never in a million years be written about a white politician:
“Colin Powell has his dancing shoes on, fueling speculation that he’s gearing up to do the Obama Two-Step.”
Yeah, it had to be a two-step.
Basically, Fox News viewed a black man expressing pride in being black and figured he’d endorse the black presidential candidate.
I don’t really know what you’re supposed to say about this crap except that it’s racist. First the“terrorist fist-jab”on-camera incident and now this.
Fox has proven that it will never be ashamed of itself.
