Did you all see Larry King last night?
Or see Bill O'Reilly show ?
and type in harry belafonte in the search box
You'll see two articles re Belafonte's verbal assault.
Click on "Powell finesses sour not from Harry Belefonte"
It seems Mr. B. has called the Secretary of State as similar
to a field slave who has "come into the house of the master."
And, called him an "Uncle Tom", and pathetically inadequate....
Well, you get the drift...........
O'Reilly was betting that Belafonte "will not apologise."
I was thinking he will....or be ostrasized and ultimately be reduced to having no pals and having to play golf with O.J.
The media is leaving it alone............................................. ...LOL

Okay, how much does Harry Belafonte need to be b*tch-slapped?
Full article here
It's one thing for an aging celebrity leftist like Harry Belafonte to go on national television (twice) and call President Bush a slave master and two black senior members of his Administration--Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell--"house slaves." But it's another thing entirely to have a respected charity organization countenance this buffoonery.
We learned recently that Africare, an African-aid group based in Washington, D.C., disinvited Ms. Rice to its annual fund-raising dinner, which will pay tribute to Mr. Belafonte's humanitarian efforts. She had agreed to give the keynote address, but Mr. Belafonte, who has compared the National Security Adviser to a "Jew" who was "doing things that were anti-Semitic and against the best interests of her people," told Africare that he could not abide Ms. Rice's presence. So the organizers rescinded the invitation to Ms. Rice.
...Mr. Belafonte tells a different story. He boasted to Phil Donahue last week that he was responsible for Ms. Rice's "scheduling conflict." "I protested by telling [Africare] that if Condoleezza Rice became the keynote speaker at the event . . . I would not be able to be there," said Mr. Belafonte. "I told them I would not come."
Shut up, Harry.
Did anyone see Saturday Night Live
this week with Sen. John McCain hosting? Man, they got in some good digs. One of my faves was the sketch with (Tracy Morgan as) Harry Belafonte on MSNBC's Hardball
w/Chris Matthews. "Pokemon is slave tradin', and Pikachu's the slave master!" Hee.
