Colin Powell's former chief of staff has blasted the Republican Party for being “full of racists.”

The biting assessment from retired Army Col. Lawrence Wilkerson came in response to controversy over a comment made by Mitt Romney campaign co-chair John Sununu, who suggested Powell endorsed President Obama because both men are African-American.

Wilkerson called Sununu’s comments “an unfortunate slip of words,” but said he believes a larger issue besets the GOP.

“My party, unfortunately, is the bastion of those people — not all of them, but most of them — who are still basing their positions on race,”

2 Pakistani convenient store clerks were shot & killed in Hartford county by black men last year.
