Black Face is perfectly acceptable at DHS


In another stunning example of President Bush’s qualified appointees in government at work. The Assistant Secretary for Homeland Security, Julie Myers has apologized for condoning and lauding an offensive Halloween costume during a contest held last week at the DHS. Secretary Myers was part of a three-judge panel that awarded ‘"most original costume" to a Homeland Security Department employee who dressed in prison stripes, dreadlocks and dark makeup for a Halloween gathering at the agency.’[Link]

Myers who oversees Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs Enforcement division, only real qualification for the job was that she is the niece to former JCS Chairman General Richard Myers and is married to a top aide to DHS Secretary Chertoff.
