Women's group denounces 'racist' cartoons

WASHINGTON, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- The Independent Women's Forum has denounced as blatantly racist several editorial cartoons featuring Condoleezza Rice, the Washington Times said Friday.

"The depiction of Dr. Condoleezza Rice by Jeff Danziger, Pat Oliphant and Garry Trudeau as an ebonics-speaking, big-lipped, black mammy who just loves her 'massa' is a disturbing trend in editorial cartoons," said Michelle D. Bernard, senior vice president of the Independent Women's Forum. "These cartoons take the racism of the liberals who profess respect and adoration for black Americans to a new level. It is revolting."

"One must ask, where is the outrage of the nation's civil rights leadership, feminist organizations, and the so-called liberals who only seem to embrace black America in election years," Bernard said.

Rice, currently President George W. Bush's national security adviser, has been nominated to replace Colin Powell as secretary of state.
