Interesting!
Powell shouldn't be puzzled by O'Reilly's racism. The majority of white (red necks) such as O'Reilly really need to feel "special." To them they are inferior and thus have to use their lack of Melanin to play up their sense of self worth by trying hard to convince the world that "white" is beautiful, superior, and all that's good.

Most Mulatto's are in denial of racism when it comes to the truth about one of their parents. They want the other red necks to accept the Red neck part of them, but these white rednecks can only see the melanin in your skin of which they envy, and so they hate mulattoes too. The Mulatto has problems with this and those that can't accept the truth, will try to pretend like they are a separate race.. The President however, is smart. He knows he's Black, he's friends are black, his wife is black and this is why he went to the South Side of Chicago to get with the side of him that those red necks couldn't give him,(Being a Black Man in America).

Any one who looks at and listens to O'Reilly, Limbaugh, Palin and and other white racist already know what time it is with them. Maybe Colin Powell just wanted him to say out loud what we all already know.

Give Powell a break! Powell meant "Why else would I have supported Obama if we both weren't Black! Obama had nothing else to recommend him."

Spoken like a typical lowlife, redneck. Thanks for helping me make my point.

Colin supported the President for the same reason we did. We meaning the "intelligent" half of the country. We supported him because he's the kind of man we want to lead the country. The WORLD supported him because they know how you sons of bitches are with your war mongering, greedy ass ways. But like Mitt the Shit...you STILL don't have a clue why ya LOST.

Since righties only like nee-groes when they toe the Conservative ideological line (Sowell, Thomas, West), they assume libs and Dems are the same way.

Not so, I'm happy to say. Colin Powell has had his bad moments, but he's a good guy, basically.

Most blacks on this forum are too dumb to articulate what they feel. So, this YT has to do for them.

Intelligent and truly capable blacks like Powell or Rice are snubbed because they're perceived as being just a part of white man's power structure. So, they're, in the eyes of their racial "kin"- uncle Toms or something like that. It's not Dems vs GOP, just race and power.

Obama, on the other hand, is a charming and articulate man, but, essentially, not much more than a Chicago pol. What gave him aura in blacks' eyes is that he became President.

Whoa ! He gives orders ! He's not just a cog in white man's power machine !

Wrong. He's just a cog. US is ruled by elites that are located in banking, gas and oil and military complex structures. They're ethnically diverse, but more than 95% white and male (diversity means WASPs, Jews, Irish, Italian, Greek,....Americans).

Obama is is more than a puppet, but less than a "ruler"- ruler means Putin, Merkel,.... So- curb your enthusiasm. Presidents come and go, money stays and rules.

Most Whites on this Forum are too dumb to realize that Black folk do not think the way they do. Just because they hate us, doesn't mean we hate ourselves. Hell no. So take your Bull shit propaganda to the white forum.

Interesting observation. I think Powell means well - being an African-American while *also* being successful and wealthy.
The GOP is a traditional haven for the rich and *used* to be a more comfortable party for African-Americans as well. Perhaps Powell yearns for a return to those old times.
It's tough for him. His party basically ceded its soul to the far and he's having a hard time coming to terms with it. It's the same public struggle that Michael Steele is going through. Sad to watch.

Maybe it's because people like you spend so much of your energy trying to de-legitimize us as Americans on the basis of our race. Hmmmm...

Good for Colin Powell for calling him out on his racist bullshit.
Colin Powell is of only two Republicans that I actually like and respect. The other is John Huntsman. These men are way too smart for the Republican party of f**ucktards.

Former Secretary of State Colin 'I have no credibility' Powell, is sticking with president Obama in this year's election.
Unable to muster enough backbone to admit, "Uh-huh, das right chillren. I be votin fo Obama cuz he black!", Powell said he likes Obama's economic performance and he thinks Romney has been vague on issues.
As if to re-enforce the fact that he has no credibility, Powell concluded his segment on CBS This Morning by saying, "I'm still a Republican."
Disgusting, racist crap.

Even a Colin Powell disgraced by his association with Bush and Cheney still has more credibility than YOU ever will. GFY...
