Colin Powell Calls Out The GOP’s Racism Problem: There Is ‘A Dark Vein Of Intolerance’


On Sunday, during an appearance on Meet The Press, Colin Powell condemned the GOP’s “dark vein of intolerance” and the party’s repeated use of racial code words to oppose President Obama and rally white conservative voters.


Without mentioning names, Powell singled out former Mitt Romney surrogate and New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu for calling Obama “lazy” and Sarah Palin, who, Powell charged, used slavery-era terms to describe Obama:



POWELL: There’s also a dark — a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party. What do I mean by that? I mean by that that they still sort of look down on minorities. How can I evidence that?


When I see a former governor say that the President is “shuckin’ and jivin’,” that’s racial era slave term. When I see another former governor after the president’s first debate where he didn’t do very well, says that the president was lazy. He didn’t say he was slow. He was tired. He didn’t do well. He said he was lazy. Now, it may not mean anything to most Americans, but to those of us who are African Americans, the second word is shiftless and then there’s a third word that goes along with that. The birther, the whole birther movement. Why do senior Republican leaders tolerate this kind of discussion within the party?





according to Limbaugh and all the Righties on the radio and TV Powell is a traitor. You do know Powell backed Obama because he is Black!

the left called him a house negro for years, wonder if Colin will address that black vain in the Dems


The man of God himself on Mr. Powell





I really doubt if any house called him the house negro any time...



houses cannot speak, besides rockin is right, lefties hated Powell when he worked for Bush, both him and Rice were mocked about 'working on the plantation' by lefties...  look up the quotes...




Once again you made a stentente you can't prove. Show where Dems said that about Powell!

Amazingly, the republicans strongest support bases are in the poorest areas of the Nation.  Most of the ideology is passed down generation to generation and people have little comprehension of what they are told or expected to believe.

Once again you made a stentente you can't prove.



stén·tente  noun  \stān-ˈtänt\


1  : a long metal or plastic tube that is inserted into a bodily orifice to keep a previously blocked passageway open promoting the relaxation of strained relations or tensions between Cons and White Wingers



2  :  the period of relative peace between Libs and Cons brought on only when the Lib inserts a sténtente



· Before posting, Davey often uses a self-inserting, disposable sténtente to relax his sphincter and ease his chronic constipation.



· Davey and Art entered a period of sténtente

Remember that old phrase, " it's better to keep your mouth shut a have people think you're stupid than open it up and prove it"! Take it as advice!
