Booker Rising: Afronerd

“The Esteemed Colin Powell Endorses Obama & As Expected Some Of My Fellow Conservatives Cry Race…..NOT!”

The black conservative blogger takes white conservative critics of Colin Powell’s endorsement of Sen. Obama to task: “As many of you already know, former Secretary of State Colin Powell formally announced his endorsement for Senator Barack Obama’s presidential bid and some on the far right are blaming race or tribalism as the cause for Powell’s alleged heresy in crossing party lines. I hate to state the obvious, but it still amazes me how Whites are able to support ‘White’ interests without tribal criticism and yet Powell’s support must be viewed through a racial microscope. I have alluded to this unfair dynamic countless times since Afronerd’s inception and my greatest desire would be for people of color to speak more frequently and forthrightly as it pertains to such a grotesque double standard.”

  1. Is it about race?
    Only one person knows for sure…and that’s Powell
    Powell claims that he’s not happy with the “rightward shift” of the Republican party.
    Any merit in his accusation???
    Listen to Republican Senator Michelle Bachmann

    So…what do you think??.Is Colin Powell was just being overly sensitive, or does he have a point???
