Tavis Smiley

Speaking at the 13th annual awards banquet for the Magnolia Bar Association and the Magnolia Bar Foundation Inc. on Friday night, Smiley, 38, criticized President Bush's decision to resubmit Mississippi trial judge Charles Pickering Sr. for a seat on the federal appeals court.

"There is no way for me to say this to you other than what Mr. Bush did was the political equivalent of giving black America his middle finger," Smiley said. "He did that because he thinks he can get away with."

Yes. More like this.
