Wolf Blitzer...

Professionally trained journalists have a responsibility to choose their words wisely. Knowing that the majority of the population affected by the hurricane are Black, the journalist in question -- in my opinion -- knew full well that his choice word was inappropriate. If, in fact, he was trying to paint a picture by using the word "black" then there were several other words that he could have used. Using the same website, http://www.dictionary.com/, and going to the Thesaurus link, the words "dark; cloudy; somber; depressive" etc. could have been used instead of "black."

Just my thoughts.

Stop skippin your remedial class. It’s the finals you gonna need it to pass. Keep my name out ‘cha mouth and your mind on ya task. If you feel that I’m talking about you in these bars, Pick up ya feelins’ grab ya kicks and walk that shyt off… ~ Mos Def
