Finishing up in Fallujah? And more racial slurs.

Looks like things are winding down in Fallujah, according to CNN.

I thought it was interesting that at the same time the Monday Night Football nonsense was going on, Condoleeza Rice was being maligned as an "Aunt Jemima" by a small-market radio host. I'll have to go see if I can find the story. Cartoonists including Doonesbury's Gary Trudeau have also jumped on the opportunity to make fun of Rice, reverting to unacceptable racial stereotypes.

Is this suddenly okay? Being a white male, I don't usually think about racial issues very often. But this latest stuff is just blowing my mind.
