(My Juan WIlliams moment.)

Juan, I hope you'll forgive me. You know I'm not a bigot. You know that right?

It's just that when I'm walking down the street, I got to tell you, if I see people who are black with their baseball caps turned sideways or backwards and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as gangbangers, I get worried. I get nervous.

Because, truthfully, you just never know what those coloreds are up to. Though most of them are good dancers.

But I'm not a bigot. No. That said, I wonder why Obama won't provide his birth certificate? What's the big mystery? Obama is colored. Even he wouldn't deny that. If he was walking down the street with a baseball cap on his head turned sideways, I'd be scared, especially with him because he's probably also a Muslim. From Kenya.

Juan, I hope you understand. I agree with you. I think we're all too PC these days.

Coloreds scare me.

There. I said it. Was that so bad?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
