Condoleeza math question

Question: If "Condoleezza holds a watermelon just over the edge of the roof of the 300-foot Federal Building, and tosses it up with a velocity of 20 feet per second," how many people would be upset?

Answer: Many students at a Bellevue Community College.

College president, Jean Floten, apologized for the insensitive question. Secretary of State Rice's last name was not used but, come on, how many folks are named Condoleeza?

The next question is why are so many upset? Black comics have made far more cruel remarks about Dr. Rice and other politically conservative Blacks. Wait, there are some Black comics for whom no one is immune to cruel comments.

Let's not get into the offensive videos and songs we are subjected to on a daily basis. I don't agree with Condoleeza Rice's politics but let's be sensitive and call some folks to task about more important issues and regardless of the ethnicity or gender of the offender.
