Utter Speechlessness (This Doesn't Happen Often)

When you think about it, it's the only logical conclusion one can reach.

1 - Black people dance
2 - Black people vote for Obama. Always.
3 - Colin Powell dances
4 - Therefore, Colin Powell is black.
5 - Colin Powell is required by law to vote for Obama.

Seriously though, how fucking stupid are these people at Fox? This is the most unapologetically racist news article I've ever seen. "Colin Powell was at an African festival, so he's probably going to vote for Obama." Are you serious? Are you fucking serious?

Nevermind the fact that Powell didn't just recently acquire his blackness. You know, despite the lack of dancing over the past couple decades, he's been black the entire time. That's right, believe it or not, but he was actually born with it. But no, once he busts a move, now he's black enough to vote for Obama.

This, by the way, is a fine example of racial discourse in this country. I can almost picture this coming out of the mouth of Cletus, the slack-jawed yokel from Simpsons. "Lookee here. That dark fella likes the hip-hop sos he must be votin' for that ot'er dark fella."
