Vicious Northern Racism is everywhere
Sly issues apology TCT
In the face of furious pressure from across the county, talk radio host John Sylvester has begun to apologize for racial insults he used against members of the Bush administration last week. After he called Secretary of State nominee Condoleezza Rice “an Aunt Jemima” and outgoing Secretary of State Colin Powell “an Uncle Tom,” Sylvester’s initial response was to apologize only to Aunt Jemima. But now, Sylvester has broken from his initial stance, and issued a letter to newspapers today that apologizes to blacks, but continues to deride Rice.
