Colin Powell - A Cautionary Tale For Black Republicans

Yesterday, Colin Powell endorsed Barack Obama and ten seconds after his announcement, all his buddies, friends, supporters, and worshipers in the Republican party turned on his ass like a pack of wild dogs.

Pat Buchanan, George Will, and Rush Limbaugh proved that nearly all white Republicans think and believe the same racist things about black folks because it didn't matter that Powell had multiple reasons to endorse Obama and to criticize McCain, in their eyes, Powell only endorsed Obama because he was black.

Despite all the racist nastiness of this campaign, the idea that "black people stick together" is the most vile. Republicans in their attacks on Colin Powell have proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that they do not believe that African Americans are equal human beings with the right to come to their own observations, conclusions, and decisions. That is an absolutely outrageous belief to hold in the 21st century.

With this campaign, the Republican party has proven not only that politics has passed them and their antiquated beliefs by, but the entire world of American people has passed them by as well.

I'm looking forward to the GOP going the way of Whig Party within the next few years.

Speak it. The Republican party reminds of the horse and buggy in a time of hybrid Toyota's and Escalades. Blessings.

Prof T so true, I receieved a comment on my blog page that spoke volumes of truth to our everyday observations, regarding Colin Powells endorsement of Obama.

This entire campaign is just forcing them all to show their true colors, isn't it?
It's getting harder and harder to hide the hate...

It was a real insult; the idea that General Powell would put racial loyalty over the safety and the future of our country (since he's been a republican all these years, it's obvious that he HAS NEVER put racial loyalty above his political beliefs.) I know he probably couldn't care less about what the GOP says about him now. But, I was insulted.

PS: Please see W because Powell is depicted as the only rational voice of reason in a sea of neo-con nutcases.

Good post but this may be the only time in Gen Powell's lifetime he can vote for someone of his color who's views he doesn't share but who doesn't scare the stuffin out of him.

The reaction to the Powell endorsement of Obama proves that the Republican Party cannot manage any kind of dissent.

I'm happy to watch them implode under the weight of the fake Christianity and free market theories.

I was happy to see that CNN analyst David Gergen going after Rush Limbaugh when asked if he thought Powell's endorsement was because Obama was black said that it was one of the most ridiculous things he heard and said how come its not a race issue when a white politician endorses another white politician (same thing someone said on a blog).

How does Rush Limbaugh explain Colin Powell's failure to endorse Jesse Jackson, Alan Keyes, or Al Sharpton?

I love this election year. Every negative thing I've suspected about the republican are more true than I could've imagined.

I just did a post on Black Republicans the same day Powell made his endorsement. It is so shocking ow blatantly racist his cohorts have become. They has disregarded his whole career as an Affirmative Action hire.

The Republican party is showed its truest face with no respect by the rest of the world. This is only the begginning of the fall. Down with FOX news and Limbaugh!

It's not surprising how the true colors of people are showing. It enrages me that everything that Powell has done can be minimalized now because he endorsed Obama. The double standard persists. The white priviledges go unanswered, and people are listening to Pat Buchanan and Rush Limbaugh...how insane is that? The fact that both of them remain part of today's MSM speaks volumes as to where this country is actually at.

KIT - Whigs - no you didn't! LOL!

SHURL - Preach! Alan Keyes! LOL!

MAC DADDY - LMAO!

EVERYONE - thanks for your comments. I just wanna know could black folk get away with acting up like this?!
