I think one sign of racial progress in America is that whenever I see Condoleezza Rice, I don't think Black Woman; I think Deceptive Bitch.
You know that feeling after someone you know dies and you ask yourself, "what could I have done to prevent their death?" even if it's an irrational question? But then later you admit to yourself that there's nothing you could've done? Well, the Bush administration completely skipped that first step after 9/11. In fact, they pulled the plug on the respirator and wiped their hands of the situation (metaphorically speaking) then quickly and vehemently came out declaring that there was nothing they could've done.
