Yesterday Fox Nation posted for their readers’ edification a clip from the "Today Show" in which Ann Curry asked comedian Chris Rock (aka Marty the Zebra on soon-to-be-released Madagascar 3), what animal he could be if he could choose. Rock replied he'd stick with Marty, joking that it was "in honor of our zebra president, black and white, white and black." Rock added "I love our president, you know, but he's black and white, he appeals to all…That's what I'm going for….We ignore the President’s whiteness, but it’s there, it’s there.”
Mention race in any context, (in the Obama context) and some Fox Nation readers will be unable to resist making racist comments, any more than lions can resist eating zebras. H/T @NewsHoundAlex who flagged these “Fox Nation droppings,” as she called them, last night:
They were still at it this morning, by which time your humble servant had managed to learn how to save web pages as image files.
And this afternoon, when your humble servant managed to post images on a bog, they were still taking comments on that thread. I don't know where the mods are. Maybe they've gone to Madagascar and been eaten by lions.
