Condoleezza Rice’s appointment to Dropbox board sparks Internet outcry
Conservatives get a backlash, yet liberals get promotions. If this was happening to a liberal they would be crying racism.

Internet activists are calling for the boycott of popular cloud storage service Dropbox after it named former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to its board of directors earlier this week.
The outcry stems, in large part, from Rice’s support for the National Security Agency’s warrantless wiretapping program during the Bush administration. But the company believes having the former national security adviser will help raise its global profile.
“This is deeply disturbing, and anyone – or any business – who values ethics should be concerned,” says a blog post on Drop-Dropbox.com, a site that’s leading the call for the boycott. “Given everything we now know about the U.S.’s warrantless surveillance program, and Rice’s role in it, why on earth would we want someone like her involved with Dropbox, an organization we are trusting with our most important business and personal data?”
