commentary:

As Secretary of State under Bush, Conolezza Rice was the primary apologist for America’s unprecedented attack on Iraq.

Some may not know that the term “spade” is a derogatory term used by racists to describe blacks. To be clear, that was never my intention with this design despite some who have insisted otherwise.

So great if you could take a minute and leave your thoughts on this.
