The Color Twerple

Alice Walker, while imploring President-Elect Obama not to kill Bin Laden, slips into Troofer mode:

We live in a country with a not too distant custom of lynching, particularly in the South. For those of us who are forever aware of this reality, something rises in us whenever there is a manhunt (in my case, even an animal hunt) to demand decent treatment of whoever is captured, and a fair trial. To the surprise of both Mr McCain and Mr Obama, apparently, millions of people in the world don't believe that Osama bin Laden bombed the twin towers and the Pentagon.

Yep, and most of them took the short bus to school.
