Former Secretary of State Colin 'I have no credibility' Powell appeared on Face the Nation Sunday where he called the verdict in the Trayvon Martin trial "questionable."

He also called on Obama to be more passionate about race issues.

"I'd like to see him take race-baiting to the next level," Powell said of Obama, whom he endorsed during the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections.

"Saying your son be lookin' like Trayvon don't fly," said Powell. "Git da peeps out da house. Break some windows an shyt."

Powell, arguably our nation's greatest beneficiary of Affirmative Action, did concede that Sharpton's appointment as White House Race Relations Secretary was a step in the right direction.

As if to re-enforce the fact that he has no credibility, Powell concluded his segment on Face the Nation by saying, "I'm still a Republican."
