As Twitchy reported earlier today, Colin Powell (who endorsed Barack Obama in part based on race) attacked the GOP as a bunch of raaaaaaaacists for using raaaaaaaaacist “code words” to appeal to raaaaaaaaacist voters.

Obviously, none of us wants to be branded a racist. You already know not to say the obvious epithets.  But you’re probably wondering what “code words” Powell considers unacceptable.

Worry not. Thanks to the trending hashtag #ColinPowellCodeWords you can now access a ready-made list of subtly racist code words that must not be uttered.

Twitter user @GayPatriot got the ball rolling:
