Brit Hume to Juan Williams: "Someone needs to hose you down."

Montgomery, Alabama

Shredder purveyor FoxNews' white Brit Hume usually just condescends to black Juan Williams by saying "Juan, Juan, Juan" or some other derogatory comment. Today Hume racheted it up a bit when he said "Someone needs to hose you down."

As a white Southerner who still remembers the dark days of our past, where whites would hose down black protesters, I am shocked by the comment, and think he should apologize for his poor taste in words.
