Earlier Today on Meet the Press, General Colin Powell pulled no punches with addressing what he saw as a number of deep seeded racially rooted issues within the GOP.
POWELL: There’s also a dark — a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party. What do I mean by that? I mean by that that they still sort of look down on minorities. How can I evidence that?
When I see a former governor say that the President is “shuckin’ and jivin’,” that’s racial era slave term.
This isn’t the first time that Colin has called out his party for their clearly ignorant stances and positions. Powell didnt just question the actions of Republicans but also offered advice as to what topics need to be on their priority list for future improvement like immigration reform and more progressive economic policies.
